Player Opinion

Performance

Somers is a Tier X U.S. Navy destroyer equipped with three torpedo launchers, similar to the Japanese destroyer, Shimakaze. Somers is also equipped with decent guns, which, combined with her concealment and long-lasting American Smoke Generator (While active, generates a smoke screen that blocks line-of-sight for both enemies and teammates.), make her a very formidable opponent. She has a decent hit point (HP) pool, but her lack of armor makes her extremely susceptible to enemy fire in a gunfight, especially high-explosive (HE) from destroyers. This means that Somers is best played somewhat conservatively, with focus given to her ability to launch up to twelve long-range torpedoes from concealment.

Although Somers may not win in an even gunfight against armored destroyers such as Harugumo or Khabarovsk, her main guns are still capable of dealing significant damage due to their fast reload time. At short range, her guns will shred most other destroyers, and her armor-piercing (AP) rounds are capable of inflicting serious harm to the aforementioned armored destroyers. However, at medium to long-range, her shells tend to have high arcs and long flight times, a phenomenon that U.S. destroyer captains will likely be used to. Her versatility provides players with the option to fulfill many different roles, such as contesting objectives, hunting capital ships from concealment, and stalking the enemy to spot for allied ships. Take note, however, that she will be an easy target for aircraft due to her poor anti-aircraft armament. In matches with an aircraft carrier, it may be wise to avoid wandering too far from allied ships capable of providing some protection from aircraft attack.

Pros:

  • Great torpedo armament with long firing range, as well as decent speed and damage values.
  • Good concealment with enormous window to fire torpedoes from stealth.
  • Long-lasting American Smoke Generator (While active, generates a smoke screen that blocks line-of-sight for both enemies and teammates.)
  • Great speed and agility.

Cons:

  • Poor anti-aircraft armament.
  • Highly susceptible to low-caliber HE shells.
  • Low shell velocity and mediocre stock gun range.
