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".


Pros:

  • Eight (8) main battery guns, the highest count among Tier 6 destroyers
  • High shell arcs allow Leone to shoot from behind islands
  • Very good torpedo reload speed
  • Torpedoes have long range and very low detectability
  • The Smoke GeneratorWhile active, generates a smoke screen that blocks line-of-sight for both enemies and teammates. has a long emission time and the clouds last for long, like with USN destroyers

Cons:

  • Small hitpoint pool
  • Very large target with fragile modules
  • Slow main battery traverse speed
  • Very poor main battery rate of fire
  • High shell drag, combined with high arcs, makes hitting targets at range difficult
  • Very poor firing arcs, must show a near-full broadside to unmask all guns
  • Torpedo speed and burst damage are low
  • Virtually helpless against plane attacks
  • Slow, with a base speed of 34 knots
  • The Smoke GeneratorWhile active, generates a smoke screen that blocks line-of-sight for both enemies and teammates. has one less charge than standard (two stock, three maximum)
  • Poor concealment
