Okhotnik — Soviet promo premium Tier V destroyer.

An original project for a unique large destroyer that was created during World War I to remedy the lack of modern cruisers in the Russian Navy. The ship's dimensions — too big for this type — allowed her to carry multiple guns and torpedo tubes.

Okhotnik first went on sale on 13 March 2017 on the NA servers, and on 11 March 2017 on the EU servers.

Player Opinion

Performance

Okhotnik is a Tier V Russian destroyer that is the living embodiment of the phrase "anything worth doing is worth overdoing". She features seven main guns in single turrets, as well as twelve torpedo tubes in four triple-tube launchers.

In many ways, Okhotnik is what one might expect if the low tier Russian destroyers were scaled up in size, with more guns and torpedoes. However, Okhotnik’s guns fire slowly with a base rate of fire of only 6 rounds per minute, while their base 180 turret traverse time is 32.73 seconds, meaning she can easily out-turn her turrets. Her torpedoes are 450mm size, featuring 13,666 damage, a range of 4.5 km at 62 knots, and a stock reload of 47 seconds per launcher. Okhotnik takes the alpha strike of the low tier Russian destroyers to the extreme, and pays for it in weapon reload and mobility. She bleeds large amounts of speed in turns, and feels sluggish to accelerate again. Her large size also means she takes large amounts of damage from incoming fire.

Due to her rather short ranged torpedoes and heavy hitting guns, she excels at surprise attacks (using smoke and/or islands to close with an enemy). She does decently at longer ranges but her torpedoes are her biggest source of damage; developing tactics to deploy them well — or recognizing when a situation allows for their use — is key to getting maximum performance out of Okhotnik. She is an amusing destroyer to play if one likes to unleash large alpha strikes onto one's enemies.


Pros:

  • A very large amount of guns for a destroyer; easily outguns any destroyer she can face in her tier spread.
  • Very stealthy for a Russian destroyer.
  • The HE shells hit hard and are good at starting fires.
  • Has a decent amount of hit points for its tier.

Cons:

  • Poor rate of fire.
  • Slow turret traverse.
  • Very poor maneuverability; slowest of all the Tier V Russian destroyers and has a massive turning circle.
  • Short firing range.
  • Torpedoes have very short range, and torpedo dueling is not advised at all. Okhotnik’s size and handling characteristics make avoiding close-range torpedoes a nightmare.

Research

As a Premium ship, Okhotnik doesn't have any upgrades to research.

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

The recommended upgrades for Okhotnik are as follows:

Some captains may find Main Battery Modification 2 (+5% to main battery loading time. / +15% to main battery traverse speed.) worthwhile in Slot 3, as it provides a notable increase in turret traverse speed for only an extra 0.5 second increase in main battery reload time.

Commander Skills

Consumables

Okhotnik can equip the following consumables:

Camouflage

As a Premium ship, Okhotnik comes included with Type 9 camouflage that lowers her detection radius, reduces the accuracy of incoming shells, and increases the amount of experience she earns.
