Player Opinion


Z-35 is a German Tier VIII Premium destroyer and the first German high tier premium destroyer to enter World of Warships. While being at the same tier as Z-23, Z-35 should best be compared to the predecessor: Leberecht Maass, as Z-23 features a main battery that bears few similarities to that of Z-35 while Leberecht Maass does.

In terms of armament Z-35 offers a surprisingly strong main battery. With a base reload of 3.4 seconds she matches the shell output of Z-46 but at a lower tier, with identical shells. This means that given the 1/4 pen on Z-35's HE shells Z-35 has no issues applying her HE dpm to cruisers and a lot of battleships, while her high AP dpm allows for her to deal large amounts of damage to broadside cruisers or battleships at closer range. Her main battery range is also at a comfortable 12.1km, however the distribution of the main battery as well as the gun handling is less favorable. With five guns along the centerline, Z-35 has unfavorable firing angles in particular to the rear of the ship. The traverse speed, while not overly bad, still leaves a lot to be desired.

The torpedo armament in exchange is underwhelming when compared to her colleagues. While boasting the same fast reload speed as all the other German destroyers at Tier VII and upwards, her torpedoes come with a very short range of 6km. This makes them difficult to use tools that can only be relied upon when at closer range, though given their low Alpha damage they can also disappoint when used against larger opponents.

Compared to her peers Z-35 comes with a healthy hitpool, which when combined with Survivability Expert leaves Z-35 just short of 22,000 hitpoints. This allows Z-35 to take a few hits while not feeling too uncomfortable, although the lack of a Repair Party (While active, restores a percentage of the ship's health points each second.) should discourage Z-35 from taking too much damage. If the situation gets too heated, Z-35 comes with a special Smoke Generator (While active, generates a smoke screen that blocks line-of-sight for both enemies and teammates.) consumable that shares similarities with those found on British destroyers. A quick reload allows Z-35 to always have a smoke screen at hand to either disengage from opponents, hide herself from aircraft or to gain a very short window of opportunity to fire at a preferably low health target from smoke. The short duration of 40s should always be kept in mind however.

As with her colleagues, Z-35 has access to the Hydroacoustic Search (While active, detects all enemy ships and torpedoes within the specified radius, without regard of obstacles such as smoke and terrain.) consumable that allows her to spot torpedoes for her team or push ships out of their smoke screen.

In terms of playstyle Z-35 should try to work with other destroyers around the cap zones. Her ability to apply direct damage against cruisers and her Hydroacoustic Search can help the team gain control over the vital areas and contribute to victory. Her worst enemy are enemy aircraft, as Z-35 lacks the means to defend herself against them and her best option is to utilize her rapid recharging smoke to make herself an unappealing target.


  • Very fast main battery rate of fire
  • Good main battery range
  • Excellent AP DPM and HE penetration
  • Large hitpoint pool
  • Uses the Short-Burst Smoke Generator (While active, generates a smoke screen that blocks line-of-sight for both enemies and teammates.) found on UK destroyers, with lots of charges and a fast cooldown
  • Access to the Hydroacoustic Search (While active, detects all enemy ships and torpedoes within the specified radius, without regard of obstacles such as smoke and terrain.) consumable



As a premium ship, Z-35 doesn't have any upgrades to research.
