Special

Kamikaze — Japanese special premium Tier V destroyer.

A second group of 9 Minekaze-class destroyers, also known as the Kamikaze class, was built between 1921 and 1925. The ships featured an increased draft to improve their seaworthiness. Kamikaze was laid down under the name Destroyer No. 1 in 1921. Seven years later, the destroyer received her own name. In World War II, she was involved in the Aleutian Islands Campaign and escorted ship convoys to remote outposts in the Kuril Islands. In 1945, Kamikaze was reassigned to the Combined Fleet, and she formed part of the escort for both Ise-class battleships as they sailed from Singapore to Japan.

She is no longer available.

Player Opinion

Performance

Warning. The data presented in the AA Defense sidebar section may be incorrect.
Refer to the in-game Port screens for more useful data.

Kamikaze is identical to Kamikaze R and Fujin and roughly analogous to Tier V tech tree ship Minekaze. She has powerful, fast reloading torpedoes that travel 7.0km at 68 knots with a maximum damage of 14,400 points, making her a serious threat to any ship she can spot. With a base detection of 6.2km, she has a significant spotting advantage over anything else in her tier that isn't a fellow Japanese destroyer, allowing her to deliver her torpedoes to unsuspecting targets.

Her guns are far more situational, with four 120mm barrels that have a 10 second reload and do 2000 points of damage per shell, making them only useful against other Japanese destroyers in an even fight. Engaging an American or Russian destroyer in a straight up 1v1 gunfight is a one-way ticket back to the Port screen. The guns are decent for harassing other ships using island or smoke cover, but captains must be very careful not to draw unwanted attention to themselves. Mobility-wise, Kamikaze handles like most other destroyers, with 37.5 knot top speed and a rudder shift time of 2.9 second and a 550m turning radius, faster than most American destroyers at tier, but slower than the Russian destroyers.

LittleWhiteMouse's Premium Ship Review: Kamikaze from the NA forums

Pros:

  • Better turret traverse than Minekaze.
  • Bigger health pool than Minekaze.
  • As a premium ship, it makes more credits and experience than Minekaze.
  • Torpedoes are faster and deal more damage than Minekaze torpedoes.
  • Has three turrets that turn frontally, as opposed to two on the Minekaze.

Cons:

  • Worse anti-aircraft suite — what little there is of it — than Minekaze.
  • Slightly slower and worse rudder shift than Minekaze.

Research

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

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

Commander Skills

The following information is provided for players who wish to create a permanent captain for the ship. Those players who are retraining captains or using the ship to gain extra experience for a captain should consult the page relevant to the ship to which the captain will be assigned.

Consumables

Kamikaze equips the following consumables:

Camouflage

As a premium ship, Kamikaze comes with Default permanent camouflage and a set of permanent combat bonuses.

Signals

The choice of which Signal Flags to mount will confer to the individual preference of each captain, and are subject to great variation, although there are certain flags which are worth the further emphasis. Captains should mount India Yankee to decrease time to extinguish fires, mount November Foxtrot to decrease reload time of consumables, and mount Sierra Mike to increase the ship's maximum speed. To make their torpedoes more potent, captains should mount Juliet Whisky Unaone to increase chance of causing flooding and Juliet Charlie to mitigate risk to magazine detonation from mounting the former flag. If captains wish to buff their primary artillery, they are encouraged to mount Victor Lima + India X-ray to increase fire chance to HE shells.

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