Småland — European promo premium Tier X destroyer.

sweden2.png
One of the largest and most powerful destroyers in the Swedish Royal Navy, armed with highly effective 120 mm main guns that boasted a high rate of fire. The ship's distinctive feature was her torpedo launchers with different numbers of tubes.

Småland is now preserved as a military museum ship at Maritiman in Gothenburg, Sweden. As of update 0.10.1 (February 2021), the ship is no longer available.

Player Opinion

Performance

Småland is a Tier X European premium destroyer — a sister ship to tech tree Halland, but with some significant differences. 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 her role, and relies much more on her guns. Her torpedo armament (an unusual arrangement of one 5-tube launcher and one 3-tube) is significantly weaker than Halland's as they are loaded with stock Östergötland torpedoes. On the other hand, Småland's main battery is one of the strongest of any destroyer in the game. The firing range is somewhat limited and the ballistics are mediocre at best, but the damage output is very high and she is exceptionally good at starting fires.

Unlike Halland, Småland lacks access to Defensive AA Fire (While active, the damage per second of large caliber anti-aircraft guns is increased.), and while her anti-aircraft defenses are strong for a destroyer, she is more vulnerable to aircraft carriers than her sister.

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 Emergency Engine Power (While active, increases a ship's speed by a fixed percentage.) consumable with a short duration but a strong speed increase. Like the other European destroyers, she 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 optimized for a particular task - hunting other destroyers. Småland can detect other destroyers with radar, engage or disengage with the engine boost, and outguns almost all other destroyers while also being able to repair incoming damage. Her concealment is only mediocre, but that is not much of a problem in practice since the radar range is far greater than the ship's own detection range - if spotted by an undetected ship, simply activate the radar and the other ship will be revealed.

Since the torpedo armament is weak for Tier X, Småland must also rely chiefly on her main battery when fighting larger ships. This can be challenging - the ship lacks access to a Smoke Generator, is fairly big and slow, and the firing range is not particularly impressive. However, she does have one tool that helps with damage mitigation: the Emergency Engine Power (While active, increases a ship's speed by a fixed percentage.) consumable. While it is active, the ship accelerates very quickly to a high top speed, and with appropriate evasive maneuvers becomes a very challenging target to hit, enabling a play style like that of French or Soviet destroyers.

Småland is widely considered to be extremely strong and as such has seen extensive play in competitive settings. Fighting other destroyers is what she was built for, especially in an ambushing role. Fighting other ship classes is more challenging, but the power of her main battery should not be underestimated.

Pros:

  • Ridiculous rate of fire and DPM, excellent fire starter
  • Very fast main battery traverse speed
  • Very good torpedo speed and range
  • Excellent AA suite for a destroyer
  • Unique Emergency Engine Power (While active, increases a ship's speed by a fixed percentage.) gives a significant speed boost when active
  • Access to the Surveillance Radar (While active, detects all enemy ships within the specified radius, disregarding obstacles such as smoke and terrain.) consumable
  • Access to the Repair Party (While active, restores a percentage of the ship's health points each second.) consumable

Cons:

  • Large target with subpar speed and handling
  • Torpedoes have low damage and flood chance, and high detectability
  • The Emergency Engine Power (While active, increases a ship's speed by a fixed percentage.) consumable has a short duration
  • Lacks the Smoke Generator (While active, generates a smoke screen that blocks line-of-sight for both enemies and teammates.) consumable
  • Worse torpedoes and AA defenses compared to techtree counterpart Halland
  • Extremely expensive, requires two million  Free XP to unlock

Camouflage

As a premium ship, Småland comes with Type 20 camouflage that lowers her detection radius, reduces the accuracy of incoming shells, halves her service cost, and increases the amount of Credits and experience she earns.
