Wakatake — Japanese Tier III destroyer.

A small yet well-armed and very fast destroyer. Wakatake carries 533 mm torpedoes with better range than similar munitions used by potential rivals. An unconventional placement of torpedo launchers allows her to fire from the bow sectors.

Performance

Warning. The data presented in the AA Defense sidebar section may be incorrect.
For a graphic summary of ships Tiers VIII thru XI see LittleWhiteMouse's "Actual AA DPS".

Wakatake is a fragile ship, so one would need to keep the concealment distance (6.1 KM) and torpedo range (7 KM) memorized and balance between them. With only 8,200 HP, there isn't much leeway for mistakes, so be sure to only go for a certain attack. Stay away from areas with many ships and attack stragglers. The artillery on the ship isn't the strongest, so the guns should be used on few occasions such as lighting a permanent fire, or when the enemy ship is low on HP and can be killed. It is a very bad idea, worse than usual, to shoot at an enemy if there are multiple enemy ships in the area, if you have not been spotted, or if there are ships that can cut you down at a range i.e. cruisers and battleships. Also, it is important to turn off your AA, as it is literally worthless. Your AA gives away your position to enemy aircraft very quickly at a greater range than aerial spotting range. Also, when using torpedoes, launch them when the enemy is showing their broadside. This will make turning to avoid the torpedoes much harder and will yield greater success.

Pros:

  • Very agile and maneuverable, can out-run and out-turn almost any ship.
  • Detection range allows for close range torpedo drops and easy flanking.
  • The Torpedoes on Wakatake are the strongest at Tier III. Wakatake has the ability to destroy any ship at tier with a perfect salvo.
  • High speed and good concealment make for a good ship to get these torpedoes on target.

Cons:

  • Turret rotation cannot keep up with maneuvers. Hard to get a shot off in twisting attacks.
  • Torpedo range similar to detection range, thus leaving you a small window of attack.
  • Vulnerable to rudder and engine damage.
  • Low HP compared to other ships.
  • Almost no AA.
  • Has very weak artillery.
  • Exchanges shorter torpedo range than her predecessor Umikaze for increased damage.
  • Has fewer hit points than Umikaze.

Research

Availability of researchable upgrades for Wakatake is as follows:

  • Hull: Upgrade to Wakatake (B) for more health, improved maneuverability, and better AA. Research of this module unlocks progression to Isokaze.

Optimal Configuration

  • Slot 1 - Magazine Modification 1 : -70% risk. may seem tempting here, but the signal Juliet Charlie -100% to the risk of your ship's magazine detonating. accomplishes the same thing only better. Prefer Main Armaments Modification 1 -20% to the risk of main battery becoming incapacitated. / +50% to main battery survivability. / -20% to main battery repair time. / -20% to the risk of torpedo tubes becoming incapacitated. / +50% to torpedo tubes survivability. / -20% to torpedo tubes repair time. to preserve the torpedo tubes as long as possible.
  • Slot 2 - Engine Room Protection : -20% to the risk of incapacitation. / -20% to repair time.
  • Commander Skills
