Skåne is the Tier VII European destroyer for the tech tree that introduces a standard configuration that continues through the end of the line to Tier X Halland. While her predecessor Vasteras embodies pre-war design, Skåne is a preliminary war-time design with an overall configuration that was realized in post-war destroyers built a decade later. While Skåne loses one main battery turret, the remaining two dual turrets are quick firing with more than double the rate of fire and are also dual purpose for good AA capability.

Skåne's torpedoes are fast with a quick reload and range out to 12 km (with the Torped M1943 module). Their alpha damage is low, a trait that applies to the entire European destroyer line.

Skåne has significantly improved AA compared to lower tier members of the European destroyer line, in particular the improved range, but like any destroyer she still can be severely damaged by carrier aircraft, particularly due to her low HP and the absence of a smoke generator. She must be careful when sailing out of range of friendly AA support.

European 'Halland' branch tech tree destroyers lack smoke to break detection or the hydroacoustic search capabilities that counteract the dangers of sitting in smoke. Instead, their captains must learn to use their superb maneuverability (and terrain) to dodge enemy fire and ultimately break contact. Rather than seizing caps or yoloing large ships, destroyer hunting, especially though ambush, seems to be their best mission. While Skåne's concealment isn't great, with a 10 point commander she can achieve 6.2km detectability.

Overall game play is similar to Vasteras. Skåne's captain must carefully manage detection, plan ahead for disengaging, and engage only when favorable. She will use her torpedoes to weaken and harass enemy ships, especially enemy ships in smoke, while remembering that the low alpha will probably require additional damage to secure a kill. Her superior rate-of-fire can gun down other destroyers at her tier, especially if she has a hit point advantage, and can finish off wounded destroyers or even cruisers.

In many games, Skåne can be a winning factor when played wisely, and she provides training and experience that will carry all the way to Tier X.


  • Good maneuverability
  • Fast 80kn Torp speed, once upgraded and using Mod slot 3; TTM1.
  • Fast firing guns
  • Great AA and very usable concealment.
  • Fast 59 sec Torpedo reload
  • 12km Torpedo Range (10km stock)


  • Torpedoes suffer from previous ships low torpedo alpha - Even a full 6 torpedo salvo may not destroy a same-tier target.
  • Low hit points.
  • No access to smoke generator.
  • Few options to disengage if you get caught out of position.
  • Rifle DPM can at times feel lacking due to HE shells having only 20mm of Pen and 7% base fire chance.


  • Hull(B): 14% increase to Health (+0900pts); gain a whopping 25% continuous damage to Med range AA(+18dmg/s) while losing ~7dmg/s across both of the Short and Long AA ranges. Upgrading the Hull also reduces rudder-shift time by 1 sec.
  • Torpedoes: Torpedoes gain +2km range to the already comfortable 10km as well as an impressive +12 knots to speed, providing a net reduction to enemy reaction time despite the increased torpedo detectability range.
  • Gun Fire Control System: Leave until last for the 10% increase to main battery range.
