Yūbari — Japanese promo premium Tier IV cruiser.

An experimental light cruiser based on an idea to create a fast warship carrying the most powerful armament available while having minimum displacement. She was the first in the Imperial Japanese Navy to be equipped with 610 mm torpedo tubes. By the end of her time in service, Yūbari was reinforced with numerous AA guns.

Yūbari was first sold in pre-order bundles from 8 April through 25 June 2015. She is currently available in the Armory for Coal.

Player Opinion

Performance

First available available during the World of Warships Closed Beta Test as a pre-order, Yūbari is a fairly mediocre Japanese cruiser for Tier IV. She compliments her slow-turning turrets with a pair of twin-tube torpedo launchers with a 6km range. Compared to all of her Tier IV counterparts, Yūbari has the lowest detectability range of all: just under 10km. Where Yūbari really lacks, however, are her guns. With only 140mm diameter the shells are quite small and can have a hard time penetrating other cruisers.


Pros:

  • Premium experience, credit-earning, and commander training.
  • Excellent detection range.
  • Lowest tier ship in the game to have access to the Defensive AA Fire (While active, the damage per second of large caliber anti-aircraft guns is increased.) consumable.
  • Destroyer like rudder shift time and mobility.
  • Fast, hard hitting torpedoes.

Cons:

  • The AA suite is decent, but not outstanding.
  • Defensive AA Fire (While active, the damage per second of large caliber anti-aircraft guns is increased.) consumable only has one use (two with premium).
  • Mediocre gun performance (slow traverse, high arc, low DPM and penetration).
  • Only 2 turrets (losing one will lead to a 90 degree blind spot where you have no firepower and 50% loss in damage output).
  • Very little armor and fragile modules, similar to a destroyer.
  • Large and unarmored citadel.
  • 6,000 less HP than same-tier cruisers (again, almost destroyer level).
  • Very narrow torpedo launch angle.
  • Torpedoes lack the range of Tenryu and Kuma.

Research

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

Optimal Configuration

The following information is provided for players who wish to create a permanent captain for the ship. Those players who are retraining captains or using the ship to gain extra experience for a captain should consult the page relevant to the ship to which the captain will be assigned.

Upgrades

The recommended upgrades for Yūbari are as follows:

Commander Skills

Consumables

Yūbari can equip the following consumables:

Mounting the premium version of Damage Control Party (When activated, instantly repairs fires, floods, and incapacitations, and prevents more for the duration.) is recommended to reduce its cooldown timer. The premium version of Defensive AA Fire (While active, the damage per second of large caliber anti-aircraft guns is increased.) is also recommended to provide an additional charge of this consumable.

Camouflage

As a premium ship, Yūbari comes included with Type 9 camouflage that lowers her detection radius, reduces the accuracy of incoming shells, and increases the amount of experience she earns.

Signals

Yūbari 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.
