Player Opinion


Tier VII's Gadjah Mada is a unique destroyer, named in honor of a legendary Indonesian military leader of the 14th century. The real Gadjah Mada started his military career as a royal bodyguard and fought his way up the ranks of the Majapahit Empire. Remembered for his fearlessness in combat and strong strategic mind, Mada made the history books with his unquenchable patriotism and determination to conquer a number of island kingdoms and unite the territory now known as Indonesia under the reign of his king.

Gadjah Mada’s model is new to the game, and as such, her style will require some practice. Her guns will remind veteran captains of those found on Błyskawica, and her deep water torpedoes can be absolutely devastating when deployed correctly. Gadjah Mada plays best in front of the fleet, scouting for torpedoes and other destroyers. If enemy battleships push a different flank, she has the flexibility and speed to change flanks via Engine Boost (While active, increases a ship's speed by a fixed percentage.) and hold off an enemy push using her deep water torpedoes and Smoke Generator (While active, generates a smoke screen that blocks line-of-sight for both enemies and teammates.). As her torpedoes do not damage destroyers; subsequently, she is at a disadvantage in destroyer duels. Her AA weaponry is also weak, so battles containing aircraft carriers should prioritize avoiding their aircraft.


  • Good smoke that enables Gadjah Mada to fire from relative safety.
  • Cooldown on Smoke Generator (While active, generates a smoke screen that blocks line-of-sight for both enemies and teammates.) is short, meaning little down time between smoke charges.
  • Good maneuverability.
  • Hard-hitting torpedoes.


  • Deep water torpedoes do not damage enemy destroyers.
  • Can encounter Tier IX battles with plenty of radar.
  • Main guns are somewhat weak in terms of damage output.


Availability of researchable upgrades for Gadjah Mada is as follows:

  • Hull: Upgrade to Hull (B) for more health, a minor AA buff, and a slightly faster rudder shift time. Research of this module unlocks progression to Hsienyang.
  • Torpedoes: The improved torpedo module is a buff on nearly every front: speed, damage, and reload time.
  • Gun Fire Control System: Upgrade to Mk VII mod. 2 for an extra 10% range on the main battery.
Hull (B) should be the first priority for module upgrades, as it adds hit points and maneuverability; the torpedoes should come next for the additional damage. Finally, research the Gun Fire Control System for additional range.

Optimal Configuration


The recommended upgrades for Gadjah Mada are as follows:

Commander Skills

Key skills for Gadjah Mada commanders include the standard core destroyer skills of Priority Target, Last Stand, Survivability Expert, and Concealment Expert. From there, the captain can branch off based on their style. A captain can choose skills to enhance guns (Advanced Firing Training and Basic Firing Training), torpedoes (Torpedo Armament Expert and Torpedo Acceleration), or perhaps fleet support (Smoke Screen Expert and Jack of All Trades). Gadjah Mada is a very flexible ship, and captains should experiment with different builds to find their favorite.


Gadjah Mada can equip the following consumables:

Gadjah Mada captains should invest in premium consumables, especially Engine Boost II (While active, increases a ship's speed by a fixed percentage.) and Smoke Generator II (While active, generates a smoke screen that blocks line-of-sight for both enemies and teammates.). This keeps her as flexible as possible and allows her to either support the fleet or hold off a flank on her own.


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

Players who wish to spend doubloons can equip Gadjah Mada with Type 17 camouflage that lowers her detection radius, reduces the accuracy of incoming shells, reduces her repair costs, and increases the amount of experience she earns.
