Isokaze — Japanese Tier IV destroyer.

Developed from the Umikaze class. Unlike her predecessor, Isokaze had increased displacement and enhanced torpedo armament. The ship's artillery, though sufficiently powerful, had a low rate of fire which was typical of all Japanese destroyers.

Player Opinion

Performance

"Shore Wind" is a solid Tier 4 Destroyer that serves as a balance point, leading to both the gunboat line & the torpedo line. She can launch powerful torpedoes at outside of detection range, but one should keep a close eye on the thin margin of error between detection & torpedo range. Isokaze is no slouch in a gunfight either, with HE shells can easily rip apart other destroyers, while AP shells can citadel tier 5 cruisers. Beware of the slow turret traverse. When fighting against carriers, Isokaze's upgraded AA suite can be specialized in. Using the correct flags, skills, and high maneuverability, Isokaze can be a serious pain for carriers to fight.

Pros:

  • Better turret rotation than Wakatake but still not great
  • Powerful and fast upgraded torpedoes
  • High maneuverability
  • Coupled with maneuverability, upgraded AA can present a problem to attacking planes
  • Hard-hitting HE shells

Cons:

  • Low rate of fire with its main guns
  • Vulnerable steering and engine
  • Loses much speed during any type of turn

Research

Isokaze is the base of three IJN tech tree branches:

  • Research Hull B first to improve the ship and to unlock the "torpedo" DD branch. This also greatly upgrades AA defense.
  • Research Type4 Mod. 2 GFCS not so much for the greater range, which the guns can barely use, but for access to the IJN CV branch.
  • Research Type 6 torpedoes next to ironically unlock the "gunboat" DD branch. While this improves torpedo speed and damage, it is a downgrade to torpedo reload. Whether this is an upgrade is up to the player.

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

The recommended upgrades for Isokaze are as follows:

Commander Skills

Consumables

Isokaze equips 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.

Signals

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