Player Opinion


Romulus is an improvement from Tatra, as it has one more main gun and two more torpedo tubes. The tubes have a rather odd arrangement - the first tube has two whereas the second has four, the only time when a Tier II destroyer has a quadruple launcher. That said, the torpedoes do not deal much damage to enemies, which is a trait of European destroyers. As with most destroyers at its tier, it has great speed and rudder shift times. When playing Romulus, it is important to know her weaknesses in a destroyer to avoid mistakes - these include her poor torpedo firing angles and slow turret rotation.


  • Good reload speed (5 sec.)
  • Quad torpedo tube
  • Good speed and rudder shift time


  • Hp on the lower side even when upgraded
  • Low armor
  • No smoke generator
  • Only one quad torpedo tube, and poor firing angles
  • Very low torpedo damage
  • Slow main gun rotation


Available researchable modules for Romulus, in suggested order:

  • Main Battery: 120mm/45 Bofors M1924 has significantly faster reload and shell damage.
  • Hull: Upgrade to Hull (B) for more health. Research of this module unlocks progression to Tier IV Klas Horn.
  • Gun Fire Control System: Upgrade to SUO Mk 3 Mod. 2 for an extra 10% range on the main battery.
