Player Opinion

Performance

Smith is a unique ship in that it has three single tube torpedo launchers, one on each side and one near the stern that can fire to either side. Her torpedoes have low damage, range, and speed, but they reload every 11 seconds! This gives her a very interesting play style contrasting to the higher alpha strikes of the other low tier destroyers. She can afford to randomly fire torpedoes at possible enemy locations. However with only a 4.5km range, this works best in confined areas such as the southwest section of Big Race and maps such as Islands which have lots of cover to allow her to get close. (Be careful not to hit allies!).

An amusing tactic is to find a low tier battleship and simply circle it faster than its turrets can turn, pumping torpedoes into it.

As for Smith's guns, they are the smallest and weakest in the game, rivaled only by Tachibana’s. They don't do much damage, and the HE will bounce off an Umikaze. They fire fast, but that's all they have going for them.

Overall, Smith - while not very good - is terrific fun to play.

Pros:

  • Fast firing guns.
  • Fast reloading torpedoes, can drop to 9.9 seconds with the Fill the Tubes commander skill.
  • Small profile, so hard to hit.
  • Decent maneuverability.

Cons:

  • 76mm guns are the smallest in the game, with low damage and bad penetration values.
  • Abysmal gunnery range.
  • Lowest torpedo alpha at only two torpedoes in a salvo maximum.
  • Small health pool.
  • Quite slow for a destroyer.


Research

As a premium ship, Smith doesn't have any upgrades to research.
