V-25 — German Tier II destroyer.

This ship was designed for escorting the battle fleet and belonged to the most numerous series of destroyers in the German Navy. She boasted a very high speed for her time. Initially ships of this class carried weak artillery, but during World War I many were re-equipped with more powerful guns.

Player Opinion

Performance

As the smallest ship in the game and one of the fastest for her tier, V-25 is arguably one of the best destroyers for her tier. Having a powerful torpedo armament array, decent main batteries, great concealment, and is the fastest ship for her tier, she can easily sneak up to her enemies and annihilate them with ease. However, this powerful combination of attributes does not reflect the same potential of the later tier destroyers in the line, as noted with Z-52 having only decent torpedo armament and concealment relative to her tier of destroyers. Nonetheless, because of how powerful V-25 is for her tier, she can be considered the best introductory destroyer to new players wishing to play this ship type.

Pros:

  • Lowest detection of all ships in the game, with a base value of 5.4 km.
  • Very fast and very small, making her hard to hit.
  • Has single torpedo launchers that can almost fire forwards.
  • Can fire torpedoes from beyond detection range.
  • Guns have fastest rate of fire of all Tier II destroyers.
  • Fastest Tier II destroyer (36 knots).
  • Aforementioned forward-firing torpedoes allow V-25 to assault smoke screens with greater ease than other destroyers, given that she can charge in presenting a much smaller target.

Cons:

  • High shell arcs.
  • Weak armor might as well be non-existent.
  • Slowest torpedo reload of all Tier II destroyers.
  • Smallest health pool of all Tier II destroyers.
  • very low gun caliber

Research

V-25 has quite a number of upgraded modules to choose from. The best one for her to invest in first is likely the torpedo upgrade. Her torpedo arcs are incredibly generous, and provide the majority of her damage output. After that, pick up Hull (B) followed by the improved main battery. The Fire Control System module upgrade that boost her main battery range can be saved for last.

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

The recommended upgrades for V-25 are as follows:

V-25 only has one upgrade slot; either Main Armaments Modification 1 (-20% to the risk of main battery becoming incapacitated. / +50% to main battery survivability. / -20% to main battery repair time. / -20% to the risk of torpedo tubes becoming incapacitated. / +50% to torpedo tubes survivability. / -20% to torpedo tubes repair time.) or Magazine Modification 1 are the recommended picks.

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-25 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

Juliet Charlie (-100% to the risk of your ship's magazine detonating.), Sierra Mike (+5% to the ship's maximum speed.), 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.), 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.), and November Foxtrot (-5% reload time on all consumables.) signals are good signals to mount for this ship.
