Firing those guns gives away the USN DD's position.

Furthermore, considering that the torpedo range on USN DD's is ~5km, not only are they automatically spotted if they are close enough to fire torps, they are close enough that life expectancy is usually counted in seconds.

Lol, you haven't even notice the Gearing yet. Since I've played ~100 battles in the Gearing I'll tell you this, the torp range on the Gearing is 3x the amount you just gave as an average. Also the actual average is ~7.3 kms. :P

  The last two USN DD's are not representative of the other 8 DD's in the tree, so I omit them.

USN DDs can kite BBs to death with HE....

 

IJN DDs cannot.

So the T8 Benson with a 8.2 km range isn't omitted? But the Fletcher with all range of 10.2 is?
