Player Opinion

Performance

Tier II's Umikaze sets the trend for Japanese destroyers with its deadly torpedo armament. Its torpedoes, although relatively slow, are very fast to reload, are only detectable by enemy ships at very short range, and have a relatively long range with the upgraded torpedoes. Players need to capitalize on the upgraded torpedoes' long range by using this ship primarily as a torpedo boat, attacking enemy ships with torpedoes while staying undetected. Players should refrain from using its main guns and only use them as last-resort weapons.

Pros:

  • Fast reloading torpedoes.
  • High concealment and upgraded torpedo range give a 2.4 km leeway for torpedo runs.
  • Very fast compared to other ships it will normally face.

Cons:

  • Severely lacking in gun firepower due to low number of guns with a slow turret rotation speed and rate of fire.

Research

Players advised to research the second torpedoes first as it give a huge increase in range to enable stealth torpedo run and slight increase in damage potential.

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades
