Player Opinion

Dutch destroyer Tromp was added for The Netherlands in World of Warships during Update 0.11.10. Tromp is a hybrid destroyer that relies on her main battery, airstrike, and torpedoes to offset a sluggish, large target profile, with few options to disengage from a fight.



On paper, Tromp has nearly identical main battery shells to Tier X European destroyer Ragnar, both in damage and shell flight time. Her 13.3 km main battery range is nearly best in tier, but her mediocre alpha and average reload leave her damage per minute lacking compared to her peers. Unlike the other large-caliber Tier X destroyers, Elbing and Ragnar, Tromp does not have the same reduced dispersion formula for her main battery.

For a long range gunboat, the ability to dodge incoming fire, heal damage, or smoke and shoot from stealth is vital. Tromp can do none of these. Players will still rely on her main battery for the majority of her damage output, but must be mindful of her 24,500 hitpoints. Any damage taken is permanent, and she presents a large target. The short bursts of speed from her Emergency Engine Power allow her to dodge incoming fire and offer some relative safety, but when it’s on cooldown, she’s an easy target for return fire.


Tromp carries three torpedoes per side, with a fantastic 70 second reload and decent 71 knot speed, but their 12 km range and 15,000 damage are average. Her torpedo launchers are mounted one per side, just like lower tier American destroyers, and have fairly limited firing angles. They’re usable, but due to their weaknesses, players shouldn’t focus on them too much.


Tromp’s airstrike is her defining feature and currently unique for a destroyer. At a glance, she uses the same planes and number of bombs as her Tier X Dutch cruiser counterpart, Gouden Leeuw. Tromp drops 72 bombs per charge, and each bomb deals up to 3700 damage. Due to their low penetration of 21 mm the armament largely becomes a tool for starting fires, rather than dealing direct damage, as it limits her targets to superstructures, destroyers, and some thinly armored light cruisers such as Minotaur.

The range is limited to 10km, rather than the longer ranges of her cruiser counterparts. With Airstrike Modification 1 in slot 4, Tromp’s airstrike recharges in 48 seconds. While this is fast, it comes at the expense of Propulsion Modification 1. She stores a maximum of 2 drops at any given time. Her bombs have a faster fall time than those of the cruisers, making them a bit easier to lead. Wily players may even target enemy destroyers with them in a pinch, thanks to the reduced targeting area (lots of bombs in a small spot).


Tromp is not the most agile of destroyers, with an average 720 m turning circle and slower 5.3 second rudder shift. These factors are compounded by her base speed of 33.5 knots, the slowest of any Tier X destroyer. While the Emergency Engine Power consumable can offset this lack of speed in short bursts, for a significant portion of the match she will be the slowest destroyer in her tier. This lack of speed can lead to multiple cruisers and even some battleships outrunning her!


Tromp is quite stealthy for her size, and one of the stealthiest destroyers at Tier X, with a minimum detection range of 5.9 km. However, her excellent stealth doesn’t quite line up with the rest of her characteristics. Her large size and mediocre handling don’t work well in close-range knife fighting, and her slow turret traverse is also poorly suited for close engagements. Once the engagement starts, she lacks any practical option to disengage. With her long main battery range, even if an enemy destroyer smokes up, a teammate may still have line of sight. Then she’s in the even less favorable situation of a smoked-up enemy able to farm her while she remains spotted!


Tromp gets the high power but short duration Emergency Engine Power consumable found on destroyers like Småland and Ragnar. The standard Defensive AA Fire in a separate slot would be more notable if not for her 3.5 km AA range, and zero flak puffs. That’s… it. Nothing else.


Tromp is a bit of a strange ship. A hybrid destroyer that sacrifices torpedo and consumable power, in exchange for adding an airstrike to her arsenal. The trouble is, the airstrike doesn’t make up for the traits sacrificed to acquire it.

Her good concealment may tempt players to focus on her torpedoes, but her slow speed and mediocre torpedo power make her a less-than-ideal torpedo boat.

Players will find her guns to be decent. They have excellent base range, but do not benefit from the improved dispersion of other large-gun destroyers like Elbing and Ragnar. Gunboating at range for periods of time can be productive, but her large size and no smokescreen make her an easy target, and any damage taken is permanent. Dipping into closer ranges to drop torpedoes and the occasional airstrike before retreating to a longer range for sustained gunfire is likely the best course of action. An occasional torpedo hit will pad her damage numbers, but their mediocre characteristics and limited number prevent them from being a true strength.

At the end of the day, Tromp feels a bit like if you had a bunch of puzzle pieces, but no matter how you put them together, they never quite fit right. It’s missing the central piece, and without it, there’s no definition to go by.


  • Large HP pool
  • Long main battery range
  • Fast torpedo reload
  • Has an airstrike
  • Good concealment


  • Large target
  • Poor main battery DPM
  • Weak torpedo armament
  • Weak AA defenses
  • Sacrifices a lot for her airstrike
  • Slow, with poor agility
  • No smokescreen


As a premium ship, Tromp has no module upgrades to research.

Optimal Configuration


The main choice in Upgrades comes in slot 4. Captains may choose between Airstrike Modification 1 and Propulsion Modification 1. A 20% reduction in airstrike reload time AND a 25% increase in airstrike aircraft HP is debatably best in slot, at the expense of propulsion. Players thinking they may struggle with her mediocre handling and low speed should stick to Propulsion mod.

The recommended upgrades are:

Commander Skills


Tromp equips the following consumables:


As a premium ship, Tromp comes with Default permanent camouflage and a set of permanent combat bonuses.


Note: Use of the Juliet Charlie signal makes detonation impossible.
