Tenryū — Japanese Tier III cruiser.

Tenryu was a high-speed light cruiser designed as a destroyer flotilla leader. She relied on a scarce yet rapid-firing artillery. The ship also carried a sufficiently powerful torpedo armament. Tenryu was the first in the Imperial Japanese Navy to be equipped with triple torpedo tubes.

Player Opinion

Performance

The Tenryu was designed to lead destroyer flotillas and is capable of doing just that. The fast speed and great maneuverability makes the Tenryu very competitive in a destroyer fight. It is the first Japanese cruiser to be equipped with torpedoes and are arranged in 2x3 configuration. This allows it to engage enemy ships with an easier chance of hitting different areas while sacrificing the ability to face many enemies at once. The Tenryu also has 4 fast firing 140mm guns able to pummel destroyers and cruisers while becoming a nuisance to battleships setting them on fire and using up their damage control. The bad side of this ship is its terrible armor and large size. The citadel and propulsion are easily damaged with guns 152mm and above. Avoid getting into large firefights as you cannot stand up to the punishment. Stay with your destroyer friends and act as a second wave mopping up leftover targets to help your team to victory.

Pros:

  • Can hold its speed well during turns.
  • Fast rudder Shift time.
  • Rapid firing 140mm main guns keep a constant flow of outgoing fire.
  • Strong Torpedoes with a decent range.
  • Very effective against destroyers

Cons:

  • Very weak armour. Avoid battleships.
  • Forward gun gets knocked out often.
  • Steering can be disabled often by AP and HE fire.
  • Has low HP. Its tier 3 cruiser counterpart, the St. Louis will virtually rip it apart in a hail of fire.

Research

Availability of researchable upgrades for Tenryū is as follows:

  • Hull: Upgrade to Hull (B) for an improved rudder shift time and additional hit points. Research of this module unlocks progression to battleship Kawachi.
  • Gun Fire Control System: Upgrade to Type 3 Mod. 2 for an extra 10% range on the main battery. Research of this module unlocks progression to cruiser Kuma.
Captains should first research Hull (B) before researching the Gun Fire Control System.

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

The recommended upgrades for Tenryū are as follows:

Commander Skills

Consumables

Tenryū can equip the following consumables:

The premium version of this consumable is recommended to reduce its cooldown timer.

Camouflage

Type 1, 2, or 5 camouflage can be equipped for credits; Types 1 or 5 are recommended at a minimum to reduce detectibility range.

Signals

Tenryu captains should mount the standard flags to improve the ship's performance in battle. To improve upon the ship's armaments, 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.), 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.), and Juliet Whiskey Unaone (+15% chance of causing flooding. / +5% to the risk of your ship's magazine detonating.) flags are recommended to increase the fire chance and flooding chances respectively. To improve the ship’s survivability, captains should mount November Foxtrot (-5% reload time on all consumables.) and India Yankee (-20% to fire duration.) flags. Sierra Mike (+5% to the ship's maximum speed.) flags are recommended to increase the ship’s already high top speed. Lastly, economic and special signal flags can be mounted to improve the ship’s economic gains per battle.
