Wakatake — Japanese Tier III destroyer.

A small yet well-armed and very fast destroyer. She carried 533 mm torpedoes with better range than similar munitions used by potential rivals. An unconventional placement of torpedo launchers allowed her to fire from the bow sectors.

Player Opinion

Performance

The Wakatake is a very fragile ship, so one would need to keep the concealment distance (6.1 KM) and torpedo range (7 KM) memorized and balance between them. With 8,200 HP max, there isn't much leeway for mistakes, so be sure to only go for an attack if you're certain that you will destroy the enemy ship. Stay away from areas with many ships and attack stragglers. The artillery on the ship isn't the strongest, so the guns should be used on few occasions such as lighting enemy carriers on fire as a flaming deck cannot launch or refuel planes, or when the enemy ship is low and can be killed. It is a very bad idea, worse than usual, to shoot at an enemy if There are multiple enemy ships in the area, if you have not been spotted, or if there are ships that can cut you down at a range i.e. cruisers and battleships. Also, it is important to turn off your AA, as it is literally worthless. Your AA gives away your position to enemy aircraft very quickly at a greater range than aerial spotting range. Also, when using torpedoes, launch them when the enemy is showing their broadside. This will make turning to avoid the torpedoes much harder and will yield greater success.

Pros:

  • Very agile and maneuverable, can out-run and out-turn almost any ship.
  • Detection range allows for close range torpedo drops and easy flanking.
  • The Torpedoes on the Wakatake are the strongest in tier III. The Wakatake has the capability of destroying any ship in tier III with a perfect torpedo salvo.
  • High speed and good concealment make for a good ship to get these torpedoes on target.

Cons:

  • Turret rotation cannot keep up with maneuvers. Hard to get a shot off in twisting attacks.
  • Torpedo range similar to detection range, thus leaving you a small window of attack.
  • Vulnerable to rudder and engine damage.
  • Low HP compared to other ships.
  • Almost no AA.
  • Has very weak artillery.
  • Torpedo distance is shorter than that of her predecessor, the Umikaze in exchange for damage.
  • Has fewer hit points than that of the Umikaze.

Research

Wakatake only has one upgrade to research, the hull. Hull must be researched in order to unlock the Isokaze.

Optimal Configuration


Commander Skills

Consumables

Wakatake 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 detectability range.

Wakatake also has a permanent camouflage called "Blade", in which she appears as she does during the Halloween scenarios "Saving Translyvania" and "Sunray in the Darkness".
