Player Opinion

Performance

Shenyang is a versatile destroyer well suited for combat with most other ship classes at her tier. Originally built as a Minekaze-class destroyer, Shenyang inherited her sister-ship’s high top speed but has been equipped with an alternative primary and torpedo armament. Shenyang also carries a quick reloading Smoke Generator (While active, generates a smoke screen that blocks line-of-sight for both enemies and teammates.) consumable, allowing her to deploy a smokescreen shortly after one has dissipated.

The ship’s primary armament consists of four 127mm guns mounted in a centerline configuration. These guns possess a decent rate of fire, quick traverse speed, and high alpha damage, making them quite effective in combat against other destroyers. The reload time can be further reduced by mounting the Basic Firing Training commander skill.

Shenyang carries six torpedoes in two triple launchers. Her torpedoes have great speed and damage for her tier, making them excellent against larger targets. However, her torpedo range is slightly shorter than the ship’s base detection range, making camouflage or the Concealment Expert commander skill necessary to launch torpedoes undetected. Additionally, the deep water torpedoes mounted on Shenyang and the other Pan Asian tech tree ships are incapable of dealing damage to enemy destroyers due to their lower running depth.

The ship's 39 knot base speed makes her the fastest ship at her tier by a large margin. Captains should take advantage of her high speed and use it to disengage or escape unfavorable situations.The ship's top speed can be further increased through use of the ship's Engine Boost (While active, increases a ship's speed by a fixed percentage.) consumable and by mounting the Sierra Mike (+5% to the ship's maximum speed.) signal flag.

Pros:

  • Shenyang is the fastest destroyer at her tier, reaching top speeds of 39 knots even without the Engine Boost (While active, increases a ship's speed by a fixed percentage.) consumable engaged.
  • Her Smoke Generator (While active, generates a smoke screen that blocks line-of-sight for both enemies and teammates.) consumable has a short cool-down timer, allowing her to deploy a smokescreen quickly after one has dissipated.
  • Guns have a good fire rate and great high explosive damage, making them especially effective against other enemy destroyers.
  • Fast, hard hitting torpedoes with decent range for her tier.

Cons:

  • The ship carries deep water torpedoes which are ineffective against destroyers.
  • Cannot launch torpedoes undetected without the Concealment Expert commander skill, unless using the slower and less powerful stock torpedoes.
  • Similar to Mutsuki, Shenyang mounts only two sets of torpedo launchers.

Research

Availability of researchable upgrades for Shenyang is as follows:

  • Hull: Upgrade to Hull (B) for a side-grade in anti-aircraft guns, more health, and improved rudder shift time. Research of this module unlocks progression to Jianwei.
  • Torpedoes: The upgraded torpedo module is a mixed bag; the new torpedoes travel faster and hit harder, but reload slower and have less range. It's easy to envision that some captains will skip out on this module, preferring the 7.3 km range on the stock torpedoes instead.
  • Gun Fire Control System: Upgrade to Mk4 mod. 2 for an extra 10% range on the main battery.
Priority should be given to the upgraded hull for the increased health and maneuverability it provides. Captains should next research the gun fire control system for the added main battery range. The "improved" torpedo module is optional.

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

The recommended upgrades for Shenyang are as follows:

Main Armaments Modification 1 increases the survivability of the ship's weaponry. Propulsion Modification 1 increases the survivability of the ship's engine.

Commander Skills

Key skills for Shenyang commanders include Last Stand, Torpedo Armament Expertise, and Concealment Expert. Captains looking to improve the ship's torpedo armament should choose Torpedo Armament Expertise to decrease the torpedo reload time to below one minute. Captains interested in further improving Shenyang's already strong primary armament may find Basic Firing Training and Advanced Firing Training useful. Other skills such as Superintendent, Survivability Expert, and Jack of All Trades can also be trained to improve the ship's survivability.

Consumables

Shenyang can equip the following consumables:

Mounting premium versions of these consumables is recommended to decrease their cool-down times.

Camouflage

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

Signals

Captains looking to improve upon Shenyang's main battery armament should mount India X-Ray (+1% chance of causing a fire for bombs and shells with a caliber above 160mm. / +0.5% chance of causing a fire for bombs and shells with a caliber below 160mm. / +5% to the risk of your ship's magazine detonating.) and Victor Lima (+1% chance of causing a fire for bombs and shells with a caliber above 160mm / +0.5% chance of causing a fire for bombs and shells with a caliber below 160mm. / +4% chance of causing flooding.) signal flags. Sierra Mike (+5% to the ship's maximum speed.) flags are highly recommended to further increase the ship's already high top speed. Captains may also find November Foxtrot (-5% reload time on all consumables.) signal flags useful to decrease consumable cool-down timers. Economic and Special signal flags can be mounted to improve the ship's economic gains per battle.
