Shinonome — Japanese promo premium Tier VI destroyer.

One of the first Fubuki-class destroyers, with an incredible striking power from her three 610 mm torpedo launchers. The ship significantly surpassed preceding-class destroyers in terms of artillery firepower. However, her anti-aircraft defenses were weak, which was characteristic of all Japanese destroyers.

Shinonome is available only as a reward for completing the Honorable Service campaign.

Player Opinion

Performance

Shinonome is a Tier VI premium Japanese destroyer. Astute captains will immediately see notice her similarities to sister ship Fubuki.

Forgoing all of the intricate details like anti-aircraft rating and handling characteristics, any comparison of the two ships boils down to this: Fubuki has four guns in two twin mounts and 10.0 km torpedoes, while Shinonome has six guns in three twin mounts to go with 8.0 km range torpedoes. Digging deeper, we see that Fubuki’s torpedoes not only travel farther, they hit harder: over 16,000 rated damage each compared to Shinonome’s 14,400 damage apiece. While this makes Fubuki’s torpedoes more dangerous than Shinonome’s, Shinonome’s torpedoes are nothing to sneeze at. They are a comfortable middle ground between Fubuki’s two different torpedo modules, retaining the lower damage output of the Type 8 mod. 1's, but picking up some additional range as well as speed. With her Type 10 camouflage equipped, Shinonome has a detection radius of 6.8 km, making the 8.0 km range of her fish more than workable (especially if her commander has the commander skill Concealment Expert).

Both sister ships share the Japanese destroyer line's slow turret traverse; this weakness can make fighting at close range tricky, especially against American destroyers and their quick-turning guns. Shinonome gets more gun barrels, but has a slower reload time and less range. While she won't be winning many gun duels, the extra barrels give her a bigger damage potential per salvo against weakened enemies. Shinonome’s anti-aircraft suite is even more pathetic than Fubuki’s; captains are advised to simply disable her AA guns and never turn them on.

Overall, captains who are familiar with the playstyle of the Japanese destroyer line will feel right at home in Shinonome.

LittleWhiteMouse's Premium Ship Review: Shinonome from the NA forums

Pros:

  • Retains most of Fubuki’s strengths, including health pool and torpedo launcher configuration.
  • Additional gun barrels give her more damage potential per salvo than Fubuki.
  • Torpedo speed of 63 knots is 4 knots faster than Fubuki's top torpedoes with an viable 8 km of range.
  • Comfortable handling; veterans of Fubuki will find no surprises in how Shinonome accelerates and turns.

Cons:

  • Retains all of Fubuki’s weaknesses, including low top speed and weak armor.
  • Torpedoes have a moderately lower range and than Fubuki's top torpedoes.
  • Practically non-existent AA suite that's even weaker than that of Fubuki.

Research

As a premium ship, Shinonome doesn't have any upgrades to research.

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

Like her sister ship, there are only a few good options for upgrades on Shinonome. Main Armaments Modification 1 is the best pick for Upgrade Slot 1, while Propulsion Modification 1 is recommended in Upgrade Slot 4. Propulsion Modification 2 is the best pick of a sorry lot for Upgrade Slot 5. Upgrade Slot 2 offers either Aiming Systems Modification 1 or Main Battery Modification 2; either offers a minor boost to Shinonome’s main battery.

Commander Skills

The following information is provided for players who wish to create a permanent captain for the ship. Those players who are retraining captains or using the ship to gain extra experience for a captain should consult the page relevant to the ship to which the captain will be assigned.

Consumables

Due to Shinonome’s low top speed, it's highly recommended to mount premium Engine Boost II for better escaping from enemy gunboat destroyers (such as Farragut or Ognevoi). Premium Smoke Generator II is also highly recommended for similar reasons. Lastly, premium Damage Control Party II is always recommended because Shinonome is a destroyer with a high chance of incapacitation of vital modules (such as her engine or rudder) when under fire.

Camouflage

As a premium ship, Shinonome comes included with Type 10 camouflage that lowers her detection radius, reduces the accuracy of incoming shells, and increases the amount of experience she earns.

Signals

As a premium ship, Shinonome’s main role is to provide faster captain retraining and comfortable gameplay for the player. Therefore, the recommended flags to mount on Shinonome are Equal Speed Charlie London, Zulu Hotel, and Dragon Flag for maximum captain retraining speed. Additionally, Zulu and Papa Papa can also be mounted if the player wishes to get extra credits and free experience from using Shinonome’s premium benefits.

For other recommendations, Juliet Charlie should be mounted if the player dislikes detonations or is feeling unlucky. Sierra Mike should also be mounted if the player is not satisfied with her base 35 kt max speed. And November Foxtrot should be mounted if the player heavily relies on using their consumables or deems it necessary to use all the consumables.
