T-61 — German promo premium Tier VI destroyer.

Designed as an average-sized destroyer, her design was officially known as Flottentorpedoboot 1940. This series of ships were built in the Netherlands based on Dutch designs and components. It differed favorably from other same-type German ships by its overall well-balanced combat features.

Player Opinion

Performance

T-61 is similar to her Tier VI tech tree counterpart Ernst Gaede. Both ships share the same 128mm main batteries and the same torpedoes. They also have access to Hydroacoustic Search (While active, detects all enemy ships and torpedoes within the specified radius, without regard of obstacles such as smoke and terrain.), being the only destroyers at Tier VI to have this consumable. These two factors make both ships very good in close range combat and ambushing enemies in smoke screens. However, T-61 has main batteries that fire slightly faster than Ernst Gaede’s, giving the firepower edge to T-61. Unlike Ernst Gaede though, T-61 does not get access to the 150mm main battery guns.

Besides main battery performance, the T-61 can also perform the role of torpedo boat superbly. She has a torpedo range of 8.0 km and has a surface detectability range of 6.8 km without the commander skill Concealment Expert. With this skill, her detection range goes down to 6.1 km, giving her plenty of space to torpedo enemies from beyond her detection range. T-61’s detection range is also lower than the Ernst Gaede's minimum surface detectability range of 6.6 km, a significant reduction in detection. Additionally, T-61 has a very quick torpedo reload time at 68 seconds, over 20 seconds better than the torpedo reload time of Ernst Gaede.

T-61 is overall a stealthier, more torpedo-centric version of Ernst Gaede. Although her main battery rate of fire is faster, T-61 lacks access to the 150mm guns that Ernst Gaede can use to punish enemies with high damage shots.


Pros:

  • Good main battery rate of fire and range
  • Good AP DPM and HE penetration
  • Good torpedo damage, range and reload speed
  • Very good hitpoint pool, one of the best for a Tier 6 destroyer
  • Good concealment
  • Access to the Hydroacoustic Search (While active, detects all enemy ships and torpedoes within the specified radius, without regard of obstacles such as smoke and terrain.) consumable

Cons:

  • Low HE DPM
  • Very poor Smoke Generator (While active, generates a smoke screen that blocks line-of-sight for both enemies and teammates.) performance
  • Slow main battery traverse speed
  • Fairly slow for a destroyer, with a base speed of only 35 knots
  • Weak AA, vulnerable to planes

Research

As a premium ship, T-61 doesn't have any upgrades to research.

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

The recommended upgrades for T-61 are as follows:

Commander Skills

Key skills for T-61 commanders include a core destroyer build of Priority Target at Level 1, Last Stand at Level 2, Superintendent at Level 3, and Concealment Expert at Level 4. Many other useful skills such as Basic Firing Training, Adrenaline Rush, Torpedo Armament Expertise, and Expert Marksmen, highlight the versatile selection of skills the ship can take strengthening its guns, torpedoes, or team versatility.

Consumables

T-61 can equip the following consumables:

Camouflage

As a premium ship, T-61 comes included with Type 10 camouflage that lowers her detection radius, reduces the accuracy of incoming shells, and increases the amount of experience she earns.

Signals

T-61 should take the standard flags for improving its offensive and defensive performance in battle. For offensive flags, these include India X-Ray (+1% chance of causing a fire for bombs and shells with a caliber above 160mm. / +0.5% chance of causing a fire for bombs and shells with a caliber below 160mm. / +5% to the risk of your ship's magazine detonating.) and Victor Lima (+1% chance of causing a fire for bombs and shells with a caliber above 160mm / +0.5% chance of causing a fire for bombs and shells with a caliber below 160mm. / +4% chance of causing flooding.) to improve the fire chance, and Juliet Whiskey Unaone (+15% chance of causing flooding. / +5% to the risk of your ship's magazine detonating.) to improve chance of flooding. For defensive and utility flags, November Foxtrot (-5% reload time on all consumables.) and Sierra Mike (+5% to the ship's maximum speed.) are the primary choices to reduce consumable cooldowns and increase the top speed, respectively. I f excessive fire damage and detonations are of concern, the flags India Yankee (-20% to fire duration.) and Juliet Charlie (-100% to the risk of your ship's magazine detonating.) can be used to reduce time spent on fire and remove the chance of detonating entirely.

As T-61 is a premium ship, the economic and special signal flags can be mounted to further boost the economic and experience gains of the ship.
