Player Opinion

Performance

Småland is a Tier X European premium destroyer, researchable for 2,000,000 Free XP. It is a sister ship to the tech tree Halland, but has some significant differences compared to her tech tree counterpart - most importantly, Småland has access to Surveillance Radar (While active, detects all enemy ships within the specified radius, disregarding obstacles such as smoke and terrain.).

Whereas Halland is a well-rounded generalist ship centered around its torpedoes, Småland is far more specialized in its role, and relies much more on its guns. Its torpedo armament (an unusual arrangement of one 5-tube launcher and one 3-tube) is significantly weaker than Halland's in most ways, but on the other hand, its main battery is one of the strongest of any destroyer in the game. The firing range is somewhat limited (although not as severely as on the Halland) and the ballistics are mediocre at best, but the damage output is extremely high. Without access to a Smoke Generator (While active, generates a smoke screen that blocks line-of-sight for both enemies and teammates.) though, actually using the guns extensively is usually not so easy.

In addition to the exceptional main battery, Småland also has access to Surveillance Radar (While active, detects all enemy ships within the specified radius, disregarding obstacles such as smoke and terrain.), as well as an unusual Engine Boost (While active, increases a ship's speed by a fixed percentage.) consumable with a very short duration but a very strong speed increase. Like the other European destroyers, it also has a Repair Party (While active, restores a percentage of the ship's health points each second.). With this in mind, it is clear that this ship is highly specialized for a particular task - hunting other destroyers. It can detect other destroyers with its radar, engage or disengage with the Engine Boost (While active, increases a ship's speed by a fixed percentage.), and it outguns almost all other destroyers while also being able to repair incoming damage.

Of course, the downside of this specialization is that the ship becomes less effective outside of its specialization. One of the strengths of its tech tree sister Halland is that the long-range torpedoes and strong anti-aircraft defenses make it relatively resilient against both radar and aircraft carriers, but Småland is not as strong in this regard. Its torpedoes are both shorter ranged and weaker in general, and while the anti-aircraft defenses are good for a destroyer, it lacks access to Defensive AA Fire (While active, the damage per second of large caliber anti-aircraft guns is increased.).

When fighting other destroyers, Småland is devastatingly effective. However, it is far less flexible than its tech tree sister and generally less effective at fighting other ship classes.

Pros:

  • Mounts Surveillance Radar (While active, detects all enemy ships within the specified radius, disregarding obstacles such as smoke and terrain.) in a unique slot
  • Fast torpedoes with a relatively quick reload and decent range
  • Unique Engine Boost (While active, increases a ship's speed by a fixed percentage.) consumable that is stronger than usual
  • Good anti-aircraft defenses
  • Exceptionally strong main battery damage output

Cons:

  • Large and unwieldy hull, with poor top speed without Engine Boost (While active, increases a ship's speed by a fixed percentage.)
  • Very short duration Engine Boost (While active, increases a ship's speed by a fixed percentage.)
  • Poor concealment for a tier X destroyer
  • Only 8 torpedo tubes, with very low damage per torpedo
  • No Smoke Generator (While active, generates a smoke screen that blocks line-of-sight for both enemies and teammates.) consumable
