Player Opinion

Performance

Yoshino is a Japanese heavy cruiser at Tier X. She is armed with nine high-caliber main guns housed in three turrets. For her size, she is relatively quick and agile, and her main battery packs a punch. Further comprising her arsenal are long-range torpedoes and an effective anti-aircraft suite.

Yoshino can best be described as a sort of "hybrid" between the Tier X Japanese battleship Yamato and cruiser Zao. Her size, hit-point pool, large-caliber guns, superstructure design, and gun layout make players feel confident as if they are in a battleship. However, Yoshino is fragile when broadside. Her extremely vulnerable citadel means that a poorly timed maneuver can leave Yoshino crippled or sinking. However, when properly angled, she is capable of delivering devastating shots to the enemy with relatively effective protection. All enemy cruisers must take care not to find themselves broadside to Yoshino, as they will surely be punished. Yoshino has heavy armor, meaning that unless she is broadside, cruisers will have a hard time dealing reliable damage with armor-piercing (AP) rounds. She has a somewhat sluggish reload time, meaning that players must choose their shots carefully. Yoshino is a versatile and formidable ship, capable of being a dangerous threat to nearly any enemy.

Pros:

  • High caliber, accurate main battery.
  • Access to 16 of Shimakaze's 20 kilometer hard-hitting torpedoes, with 2 launchers of 4 torpedoes on each side
  • Effective AA armament.
  • Decent armor protects her when angled.
  • Large hit point pool.
  • Relatively small superstructure, making it hard for destroyers to deal with Yoshino with their guns
  • Very long base range, which can be enhanced even further with Template:Spotter Plane

Cons:

  • Sluggish turret traverse and reload time.
  • Only one rear-facing turret.
  • Very large and vulnerable citadel if not angled correctly
  • Poor handling for a tier 10 cruiser
  • Her armor-piercing ammunition is sub-optimal for a ship of her gun caliber, although still potent

Research

Despite being a premium ship, Yoshino does have one upgrade choice:

Torpedoes: Yoshino is equipped with Type93 mod. 3 torpedoes. These can be upgraded to Type93, which entail the following differences: -4.0 seconds to reload time (167.0s); -2800 maximum damage (20967); -5 kts torpedo speed(62 kts); +8.0 KM torpedo range (20km).

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

The recommended upgrades for Yoshino are as follows:

Commander Skills

Key skills for Yoshino commanders include Expert Loader, Expert Marskman, and Fire Prevention.

Consumables

Yoshino can equip the following consumables:

Camouflage

As a premium ship, Yoshino comes included with Type 20 camouflage that lowers her detection radius, reduces the accuracy of incoming shells, reduces her repair costs, and increases the amount of experience she earns.
