Player Opinion


Pros:

  • Highest rate of fire of all Tier IV destroyers.
  • Much stealthier than her predecessor, G-101.
  • Small but comfortable window from which she can fire torpedoes beyond her detection range.
  • Maintains the forward firing torpedo launchers of the G-101 and the V-25.
  • Front two main battery turrets can rotate 360 degrees.

Cons:

  • High shell arcs.
  • Very short smokescreen duration limits offensive smoking ability.

Research

V-170 doesn't have any really stand-out module upgrades. Hull (B) is probably the best bet to start with; extra hit points are always useful. The Fire Control System module should come next to improve her main battery range. The Torpedo upgrade can be saved for last or skipped entirely.

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

The recommended upgrades for V-170 are as follows:

Commander Skills

Low-tier German DDs need skills that allow them to survive longer. Priority Target, Preventative Maintenance, High Alert, Last Stand, Vigilance, Survivability Expert, Concealment Expert, and Advanced Firing Training will all help in this regard.

Consumables

V-170 can equip the following consumables:

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

Players looking to quickly grind down the German destroyer line should mount the following signals: Equal Speed Charlie London (+50% XP earned for the battle.) for faster XP gain, Sierra Mike (+5% to the ship's maximum speed.) to compensate for her rather slow speed, and Zulu Hotel (+50% Commander XP earned for the battle.) for faster commander retraining if the player transferred the commander from G-101. Juliet Whiskey Unaone (+15% chance of causing flooding. / +5% to the risk of your ship's magazine detonating.) is not recommended as battleships at this tier do not have very much torpedo protection and V-170 has quick-reloading torpedo tubes.
