Elbing — German Tier X destroyer.

A project for a so-called "reconnaissance cruiser", and the culmination of efforts to create a destroyer that would be capable of operating on the high seas. She was a large destroyer with 150 mm main guns placed in twin turrets, and carried powerful torpedo armament.

Player Opinion

Performance

Elbing is a Tier X German destroyer that tends to share more in common with cruisers than other destroyers at her tier. Her 150 mm armor-piercing (AP) shells pack a punch, capable of penetrating to the citadel of many cruisers who show their broadside. She is also armed with torpedoes and has access to the Defensive AA Fire (While active, the damage per second of large caliber anti-aircraft guns is increased.) consumable to repel enemy aircraft.

Beginning with her strong traits, Elbing has good guns sporting decent ballistic properties. For a destroyer, her main battery has an exceptional firing range with a very good accuracy, meaning that players can choose to engage at longer ranges to harass enemy capital ships. Combine that with her improved pen angles and excellent pen(similar to the ap pen of hindenburg), she is a serious threat to cruisers. Her torpedoes hit hard and reload quickly, despite their slow speed in the water. Her two rear-facing gun mounts enable Elbing to defend herself well when retreating. Despite these traits, players may find that Elbing poses some difficulties while serving in a traditional destroyer role. With a modest detectability range, she will likely be spotted first in an engagement. Once detected, Elbing is a large target due to her size and height out of the water. Players will quickly discover that Elbing has a very poor turning radius and a sluggish rudder that makes conducting emergency maneuvers to dodge incoming ordinance difficult. Unlike Z-52, Elbing does not have access to the Hydroacoustic Search (While active, detects all enemy ships and torpedoes within the specified radius, without regard of obstacles such as smoke and terrain.) or Engine Boost (While active, increases a ship's speed by a fixed percentage.) consumables, making it difficult to engage in a playstyle where countering enemy destroyers is a priority. For these reasons, Elbing excels at medium to long-range harassment of enemy ships, along with scouting roles.

Elbing is best utilized as a scout ship to harass enemy ships and engage in target spotting to assist teammates. Her large pool of hit-points, access to the Defensive AA Fire (While active, the damage per second of large caliber anti-aircraft guns is increased.) consumable, long-range guns with good ballistics, and torpedo armament make her a formidable threat to any ship she faces. She is relatively self-sufficient, but players should try to avoid close-quarters engagements with other destroyers to minimize the difficulties presented by her large profile and poor turning capabilities.

Pros:

  • Largest gun caliber among Tier 10 destroyers
  • AP shells have amazing penetration and improved penetration angles
  • As with all other German destroyers, Elbing's HE shells have improved penetration
  • Most accurate destroyer guns in the game
  • Excellent ballistics - high shell velocity and flat arcs
  • Very good torpedo range
  • 25mm midsection armor provides some protection against DD-caliber HE shells
  • Largest DD hitpoint pool in the game

Cons:

  • The largest destroyer in the game, almost as large as a light cruiser
  • Abysmal HE damage output
  • Poor rate of fire for a destroyer
  • Fairly average speed, large turn radius and slow rudder shift
  • Extremely slow torpedoes
  • AA defenses are not the best
  • Lacks the Engine Boost (While active, increases a ship's speed by a fixed percentage.) consumable
  • Unsuited for contesting capture points

Research

As a Tier X ship, Elbing has no upgrades to research.

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

Recommended upgrades for Elbing:

Commander Skills

While the range of Elbing's torpedoes is long enough that they can be considered an offensive weapon, they are not the ship's primary strength. Skill points are better invested elsewhere.

Consumables

Elbing equips:

Camouflage

Type 1, 2, or 5 camouflage can be equipped for credits; Types 2 or 5 are recommended at a minimum to reduce the accuracy of incoming shells.

Players who wish to spend doubloons can equip Elbing with Type XX camouflage that lowers her detection radius, reduces the accuracy of incoming shells, reduces her service cost, and increases the amount of credits and experience she earns.

Signals

Note: Use of the Juliet Charlie signal makes detonation impossible.
