Player Opinion

Performance

Warning. The data presented in the AA Defense sidebar section may be incorrect.
For a graphic summary of ships Tiers VIII thru XI see LittleWhiteMouse's "Actual AA DPS".


At first glance, Chumphon looks like a direct clone of Flint, which is for the most part largely true. Both ships share the same 127mm dual-purpose main batteries, have the same 32.5 knot maximum speed, and have virtually the same hitpoint pool when fully upgraded. However that is where the similarities end. Although Chumphon looks like it was directly cloned, there are a few key differences.

The most striking difference between Chumphon and Flint are the torpedoes they possess. While Flint wields torpedoes that can strike any target, Chumphon possesses the signature Pan-Asian deep-water torpedoes. These are limited in their choice of targets as they are incapable of attacking destroyers, but in exchange are far less detectable than normal torpedoes. In addition to this, she is equipped with the Torpedo Reload BoosterWhen used, torpedo reload time is significantly reduced. consumable, which is something her american counterpart cannot possess.

The 5-inch guns are also different. Although they have similar performance, having the same damage values for their shells and have the same turret traverse speed, Chumphon has a standard reload time of 6.5 seconds, compared to Flint's 5.1 second reload. This means that Chumphon will have a somewhat more difficult time attempting to farm damage, and in certain circumstances the longer reload could mean life or death. As a result, players must play carefully if they want to make it to at least the mid-game, as the reload will hamper the ship's ability to take down destroyers.

To summarize, Chumphon is essentially a nerfed Flint, trading reload speed and torpedo target choices in exchange for torpedo detectability and focusing more on a torpedo build. Players will need to be more careful playing her around destroyers because of her incapability to strike them with torpedoes, and also due to a longer reload.

Pros:

  • Deep-water torpedoes that have extremely long range and are hard to detect.
  • Same 127mm dual-purpose guns that are extremely dangerous to destroyers.
  • Decently powerful AA Suite that is capable of shredding an entire squadron with Defensive AA FireWhile active, the damage per second of large caliber anti-aircraft guns is increased. active.
  • Torpedo Reload BoosterWhen used, torpedo reload time is significantly reduced. which allows up to 8 torpedoes a broadside
  • Access to the Smoke GeneratorWhile active, generates a smoke screen that blocks line-of-sight for both enemies and teammates. consumable, which is uncommon for a ship of this class.
  • High shell arcs which allow her to shoot over islands and remain virtually undetected.

Cons:

  • Only one charge of the Torpedo Reload BoosterWhen used, torpedo reload time is significantly reduced. consumable. Finding a prime time when to use it is a large factor.
  • Unlike Flint, Chumphon does not get unlimited charges of the Defensive AA Fire consumable.
  • She is unable to trade Defensive AA Fire for Hydroacoustic SearchWhile active, detects all enemy ships and torpedoes within the specified radius, without regard of obstacles such as smoke and terrain..
  • High shell arcs and low shell velocity makes shooting at range difficult.
  • Reload is 1.4 seconds longer than Flint, which hampers her ability to deal with destroyers
  • Torpedoes cannot hit destroyers.
  • Armor can be penetrated by HE shells of virtually all calibers.
