Player Opinion


Pros:

  • The torpedoes are decently fast, going 65 knots without upgrades/commander skills.
  • The torpedoes have a fast reload time of just 59 seconds.
  • Decently fast, Västerås has a stock speed of 38 knots.
  • The ship has access to the Repair Party (While active, restores a percentage of the ship's health points each second.) consumable.

Cons:

  • The main battery guns have a reload of 7.5 seconds, making it somewhat harder to fight enemy destroyers than the likes of some other destroyers of the same tier.
  • Torpedoes have quite a low maximum damage of just 6,200.
  • Mediocre stock concealment of 7.1km.
  • Maximum main battery range of just 9.9km.
  • The Repair Party (While active, restores a percentage of the ship's health points each second.) consumable on Västerås only heals 110hp per second.
  • Turrets turn slowly.

Research

Availability of researchable upgrades for Västerås is as follows:

  • Hull: Upgrade to Hull (B) for more hit points, an additional main battery gun and faster rudder shift time. Research of this module unlocks progression to Skåne.
  • Gun Fire Control System: Upgrade to SUO Mk 6 mod. 2 for an extra 10% range on the main battery.
