Isokaze — Japanese Tier IV destroyer.

Developed from the Umikaze class. Unlike her predecessor, Isokaze had increased displacement and enhanced torpedo armament. The ship's artillery, though sufficiently powerful, had a low rate of fire which was typical of all Japanese destroyers.

Player Opinion


Pros:

  • Better turret rotation than Wakatake but still not great
  • Powerful and fast upgraded torpedoes
  • High maneuverability

Cons:

  • Low rate of fire with its main guns
  • Steering and engine can be taken out very quickly multiple times
  • Loses much speed during any type of turn

Research

Research progression is dependent on personal playstyle.
Upgrade to the B hull first as it increases hit points by 1,300, adds 1 main turret, and decreases rudder shift time by 1.3s.

For players who prefer a torpedo-based playstyle, upgrade the torpedoes next. The torpedo upgrade gives the torpedoes more damage in exchange for a slightly longer cooldown.
For players who prefer a gunboat-based playstyle, go for the Gun Fire Control System upgrade next. The range upgrade gives the guns an additional 0.8km firing range.

Once the first two modules are researched, research the one remaining module.

Optimal Configuration


Commander Skills

Camouflage

Type 1, 2, or 5 camouflage can be equipped for credits; Types 1 or 5 are recommended at a minimum to reduce detectability range.
