Player Opinion

Performance


Pros:

  • Shares many of the positive aspects of the Charles Martel upon which it is based
  • Low surface detection when fully built, allows for stealth torpedo capability
  • rather decent mid and short range AA rings
  • Rather powerful HE shells, with a 12.0% Fire Chance
  • Access to scout aircraft
  • Access to Torpedo Reload Booster
  • Quick on it's feet, with a 9.8 second rudder shift and a small-ish turning circle

Cons:

  • Shares many of the weak points of Charles Martel
  • Loses Engine Boost and Main Battery Reload Booster
  • Has only 3 Torpedoes per side.Though they deal good damage, they are Deepwater, making them useless against DDs
  • Pathetically slow for what it is, even Baltimore and Hipper are faster
  • No access to Hydroacoustic Search, only has Defensive AA Fire
  • Horribly squishy, prone to exploding if caught by heavy cruisers showing broadside ( and all Battleships within her matchmaking spread with a gun caliber of 380mm or larger at any angle)

Research

As a premium ship, Wukong doesn't have any upgrades to research.

Optimal Configuration


Commander Skills

Camouflage

As a premium ship, Wukong comes included with Type XX camouflage that lowers her detection radius, reduces the accuracy of incoming shells, reduces her repair costs, and increases the amount of experience she earns.
