So I finally got to Gnevny after taking advantage of the 3x exp weekend. But my main question is, what skill do you use for level 4?

I'm looking at Survivability expert or Advance fire training. I notice the AFT have an 20% increase of main guns up to 139mm and I notice the entire line never goes over 130mm. Does it really increase the main gun range? Is so, is AFT the best choice?

AFT, easily. You can always check my guide.... ;-;

But does it really increase the gun range? I don't want to waste points on it if it doesn't

All Russian DDs - AFT. Go back and get DE after that. Skip concealment completely.

It's the same as gunboat build for USN DDs - tier 4 skill AFT is a must. Because RU DDs have great shell velocity, it doesn't hurt to get it, and AFT will always stay true to its increasing range on guns lower than 139mm.

Wait what about tier 8-10 DDs? Isn't that 23% concealment reduction useful at all :amazed:

Not really because every other DD will outspot you first at that tier.

Take the concealment upgrade mod for sure, I'm at the Udaloi right now and dont plan on taking CE either.

Shoot lots at 12-14klm with AFT, speed and not getting hit is your weapon.

While everyone shoots at you, hopefully your team is taking advantage of that.

Except that extra concealment works wonders when late into a match and there are only 5 ships left on a side.

 

Concealment is king, even on RU DDs. I run CE on my Tashkent and it means enemy DDs have to be that much closer to spot me and thus that much closer to whatever allied ship I'm keeping near. It also means I can stealth torp. And while situational, AFT+CE Tash can stealthfire at the very edge of its range. I've stopped a few late game caps this way.

 

CE is also nice on all the RU Prems.
