?''{{#var:ship_name}}'' can be very closely compared to the ''[[Ship:Grozovoi|Grozovoi]]'' one tier higher. While having one less turret than the ''[[Ship:Grozovoi|Grozovoi]]'', ''{{#var:ship_name}}'' trades that for better concealment. The ship is very much a jack-of-all-trades ship, combining gunboat aspects from the Soviet destroyer line, Japanese level of stealth, and American torpedo performance. +Tier IX Premium Russian destroyer ''{{#var:ship_name}}'' is very similar to Tier X Russian destroyer ''[[Grozovoi]]'' in the regular tech tree. While ''{{#var:ship_name}}'' has one less turret than ''Grozovoi'', ''{{#var:ship_name}}'' trades the missing firepower for better concealment. She is very much a jack-of-all-trades, marrying the gunboat aspects of the Soviet destroyer line with Japanese-like stealth and American torpedo performance.
  
?The gunpower is the most obvious characteristic of the ''{{#var:ship_name}}''. With only 4 guns per salvo, ''{{#var:ship_name}}'''s salvo is lacking in power. The damage output is still passable, but it is 2/3 of a Grozovoi in terms of gunpower. The guns are on two turrets with two guns each, so if one is knocked out the gunpower is halved. This makes module survivability extremely important, with so few guns each one matters a lot more. +The most obvious characteristic of ''{{#var:ship_name}}'' is her lack of main battery punch. With only four barrels, a ''{{#var:ship_name}}'' salvo lacks in power compared to the majority of her contemporaries at Tier IX. While the damage output is still passable, it means that captains will have to be more selective about when to use ''{{#var:ship_name}}''’s main battery; she is decidedly not a ship that can bully capture zones early in a match. The turret layout is also something of an issue: with two turrets of two guns each, if one is knocked out her shell throw weight is halved. This makes module survivability skills and upgrades important; with so few guns each one matters a lot more.
  
?Concealment on the ''{{#var:ship_name}}'' is outstanding, with even better concealment than Shimakaze. This concealment is unheard of for the rest of the Russian destroyers. ''{{#var:ship_name}}'' can use the stealth to get in the face of enemies and launch torps, as well as sneak up to enemy destroyers and ambush them. While it only has 4 guns, it deals enough damage to handle most other destroyers, and with concealment advantage the ''{{#var:ship_name}}'' gets the first attack in. Maneuverability is slightly better than that of the ''Grozovoi'', but still short of other destroyers. +On the other hand, ''{{#var:ship_name}}''’s concealment is outstanding, besting even Tier X Japanese destroyer ''[[Shimakaze]]''. Stealth this good is virtually unheard among the Russian destroyer line. ''{{#var:ship_name}}'' can use the stealth to get in the face of enemies and launch her torpedoes, as well as sneak up to enemy destroyers and ambush them in the middle and late game. She may be under-gunned compared to most of the competition, but she deals enough damage to handle most other destroyers, and with her concealment advantage she will get the first few salvos off before most enemies can react. Her maneuverability is slightly better than that of ''Grozovoi'', but she's still a bit more sluggish than some of her Tier IX counterparts.
  
?The torpedoes are a mixed bag, on one hand the torpedoes do more damage than the tech tree counterparts. However, 10km torpedo range can be lacking in matches with high amounts of radar or presence of aircraft carriers. Nevertheless, the ''{{#var:ship_name}}'' are a great utility tool to use whenever targets do get into range and can deal great damage. +''{{#var:ship_name}}'' boasts some of the best torpedoes among all Russian destroyers. The reload is on the long side and they top out at a range of only 10.0 kilometers, but experienced captains will find plenty of ways to get work out of them. Her anti-aircraft suite is a touch worse than that found aboard ''Grozovoi'' — largely due to the lack of the third dual-purpose main battery turret — and she packs fewer 45mm barrels in her mid-range aura as well. With a little bit of investment, her AA suite will commonly dissuade enemy carrier planes from repeated attacks, but she will not be able to prevent the initial drop or two against determined carrier captains (even with {{Defensive AA Fire}} active).
  
 +Like ''Grozovoi'', ''{{#var:ship_name}}'' has a fantastic array of consumables that afford her a lot of flexibility, but captains will want to make sure they have the credits to invest in premium versions of all her consumables as well as spending points for the Superintendent skill on her commander.

?Since ''{{#var:ship_name}}'' is essentially a slower, stealthier version of ''[[Grozovoi]]'' with one less turret and worse AA, players can treat the destroyer in a similar manner albeit with some variation. A more 'generalist' build focusing on preserving the engine module and armament modules (especially since the destroyer only has two turrets) is advised, although the choice in '''Slot 6''' will depend on if the player would rather take advantage of their destroyer's torpedoes, or stick to improving the gunnery abilities of the ship.+''{{#var:ship_name}}'' is essentially a slower, stealthier version of ''[[Grozovoi]]'' with one less turret and worse AA, captains can treat the destroyer in a similar manner albeit with some variation.

 ===History=== ===History===
?''Neustrashimy'' (Неустрашимый, Dauntless) was a destroyer built for the Soviet Navy in the early 1950s. She was to be the prototype for an extended production run but only one ship was built. ''Neustrashimy'' was considered too big for series production and a modified design, the ''Kotlin'' class was chosen for series production instead. The Soviet Designation was Project 41. This was the first Soviet ship to be given a NATO reporting name being called the ''Tallinn'' class. <br /> 
?The ship was built by Zhdanov Shipyard, Leningrad, laid down 1950, Launched 29 January 1951, on extended trials between 28 January 1952 and commissioning on 31 January 1955. She served in the Baltic Fleet and was decommissioned February 1974  
  
 ====Design==== ====Design====
 +The idea of a multi-purpose destroyer came up as early as 1939, with the demand being that such a ship should be capable of engaging surface, air and underwater targets effectively. The outbreak of the war however prevented further design work to be done until after the war. Work was picked up in 1946, yet it was not before 1949 when the final design of Project 41, ''Neustrashimy'' (Неустрашимый, "Dauntless"), was approved and the hull laid down.

The hull of Project 41 was divided into fourteen watertight compartments with the possibility to flood individual compartments if so needed. The amount of superstructure was kept to a bare minimum, with only armament, funnels and the forward superstructure being present, and in a similar manner the amount of portholes was reduced as much as possible compared to preceding designs. Up to 305 men would crew the ship.

These guns could fire a 33kg heavy shell at ranges up to 27,700m, or against air targets at an altitude of almost 20km. Depending on whether or not the gun rammer was used, the reload of these guns varied between four and six seconds.

 For anti-aircraft purposes eight 45mm/68 21-KM machine cannons were installed in four twin mountings, which were capable of firing up to 40 rounds every minute against targets 10.7km away or 6.4km high. Close range defense was covered by eight 25mm/79 110-PM guns in two quadruple mountings, firing on average 270-300 rounds per minute against surface targets 3km away, or air targets at an altitude of up to 1.7km.  For anti-aircraft purposes eight 45mm/68 21-KM machine cannons were installed in four twin mountings, which were capable of firing up to 40 rounds every minute against targets 10.7km away or 6.4km high.

Neustrashimy — Soviet Tier IX destroyer.

The first destroyer of the Soviet Navy designed and built after World War II (Project 41). A number of innovative solutions were used in the ship's design, including the most advanced torpedo tubes and the latest artillery mounts, which served both as dual-purpose main battery and AA defense.

Player Opinion

Performance

Tier IX Premium Russian destroyer Neustrashimy is very similar to Tier X Russian destroyer Grozovoi in the regular tech tree. While Neustrashimy has one less turret than Grozovoi, Neustrashimy trades the missing firepower for better concealment. She is very much a jack-of-all-trades, marrying the gunboat aspects of the Soviet destroyer line with Japanese-like stealth and American torpedo performance.

The most obvious characteristic of Neustrashimy is her lack of main battery punch. With only four barrels, a Neustrashimy salvo lacks in power compared to the majority of her contemporaries at Tier IX. While the damage output is still passable, it means that captains will have to be more selective about when to use Neustrashimy’s main battery; she is decidedly not a ship that can bully capture zones early in a match. The turret layout is also something of an issue: with two turrets of two guns each, if one is knocked out her shell throw weight is halved. This makes module survivability skills and upgrades important; with so few guns each one matters a lot more.

On the other hand, Neustrashimy’s concealment is outstanding, besting even Tier X Japanese destroyer Shimakaze. Stealth this good is virtually unheard among the Russian destroyer line. Neustrashimy can use the stealth to get in the face of enemies and launch her torpedoes, as well as sneak up to enemy destroyers and ambush them in the middle and late game. She may be under-gunned compared to most of the competition, but she deals enough damage to handle most other destroyers, and with her concealment advantage she will get the first few salvos off before most enemies can react. Her maneuverability is slightly better than that of Grozovoi, but she's still a bit more sluggish than some of her Tier IX counterparts.

Neustrashimy boasts some of the best torpedoes among all Russian destroyers. The reload is on the long side and they top out at a range of only 10.0 kilometers, but experienced captains will find plenty of ways to get work out of them. Her anti-aircraft suite is a touch worse than that found aboard Grozovoi — largely due to the lack of the third dual-purpose main battery turret — and she packs fewer 45mm barrels in her mid-range aura as well. With a little bit of investment, her AA suite will commonly dissuade enemy carrier planes from repeated attacks, but she will not be able to prevent the initial drop or two against determined carrier captains (even with Defensive AA Fire (While active, the damage per second of large caliber anti-aircraft guns is increased.) active).

Like Grozovoi, Neustrashimy has a fantastic array of consumables that afford her a lot of flexibility, but captains will want to make sure they have the credits to invest in premium versions of all her consumables as well as spending points for the Superintendent skill on her commander.

Pros:

  • Superb concealment not just for a Russian destroyer, but for the ship type as a whole.
  • Shell arcs have great ballistics, making it comfortable to hit targets at any range.
  • Neustrashimy’s torpedoes are more damaging than either option on Grozovoi.
  • Offers a good jack-of-all-trades style destroyer while preserving a lot of utility due to her mix of consumables, including Repair Party (While active, restores a fixed percentage of a ship's hit points each second.).

Cons:

  • With only four guns spread between two turrets, Neustrashimy lacks main battery firepower compared to the other Tier IX Russian destroyers, Udaloi and Tashkent.
  • The concentration of all of Neustrashimy’s main battery guns into two turrets means that losing a turret hurts badly.
  • Relatively short torpedo range of 10.0 km means captains have to get dangerously close to the radar range of enemy cruisers to get her torpedoes into action.
  • Large size and lousy turning circle mean that Neustrashimy can be hit easily at range.

Research

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

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

The recommended upgrades for Neustrashimy are as follows:

Neustrashimy is essentially a slower, stealthier version of Grozovoi with one less turret and worse AA, captains can treat the destroyer in a similar manner albeit with some variation. A more 'generalist' build focusing on preserving the engine module and armament modules (especially since the destroyer only has two turrets) is advised, although the choice in Slot 6 will depend on if captains prefer to take advantage of her torpedoes or stick to improving the gunnery abilities of the ship.

Since Neustrashimy has access to the Defensive AA Fire (While active, the damage per second of large caliber anti-aircraft guns is increased.) consumable, it is also possible to utilize an AA build with this ship. Captains pursuing this build should equip AA Guns Modification 1 (+2 to number of explosions produced by salvos from medium- and long-range AA defenses.) into Slot 3, and if they are willing to sacrifice the potentially boost to damage against ships, place AA Guns Modification 2 (+15% continuous damage from all AA mounts. / +15% damage per second within the explosion radius of shells fired from medium- and long-range AA defenses.) in Slot 6 instead of upgrades to improve gun or torpedo battery performance. Coupled with the appropriate captain skills such as Basic Firing Training and/or Advanced Firing Training, as well as the November Echo Setteseven (+5% continuous damage by all AA guns, +5% damage per second within the explosion radius of shells fired from medium- and long-range AA defenses.) flag, Neustrashimy can become a very potent anti-aircraft picket.

Commander Skills

Key skills for Neustrashimy commanders include a similar to Grozovoi, due to their superficial similarity; with a higher emphasis on survivability. Due to Neustrashimy’s poise as a jack-of-all-trades, captains are at the liberty to tailor their skills to suit their play style, preferring guns or torpedoes as they see fit. Superintendent coupled with premium consumables is almost mandatory in order to get the maximum amount of utility out of the ship.

Consumables

Neustrashimy can equip the following consumables:

Neustrashimy has an amazing array of consumables, but she begins with only one charge of each if standard versions are equipped. Premium consumables are highly recommended in ALL slots, as well as the Superintendent skill on her commander.

Camouflage

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