Asashio — Japanese premium Tier VIII destroyer.

Japanese destroyer Asashio was the ultimate ship of this type in Japan, built after the launch of the Fubuki-class ships. The absence of constraints on displacement allowed naval architects to find a good balance between speed, armament, and hull size. Due to a good overall layout, Asashio served as a prototype for the majority of subsequent Japanese destroyers.

Player Opinion

Performance

Asashio is externally very comparable to her tier eight compatriot Kagero. They share nigh identical or very close concealment ratings, maneuverability statistics, guns, and health. The two ships are extremely similar, but Asashio is saved from being a strict clone but her unique torpedo armaments, and by having the Torpedo Reload Booster (When used, torpedo reload time is significantly reduced.) occupying a separate consumable slot—as in Akizuki's case.

Technically speaking, Asashio is the stealthiest destroyer in her matchmaking spread, having a slightly smaller air detection radius than Kagero and HSF Harekaze. This allows her to do vision control exceedingly well, utilising her stealth as another layer of armor against enemy vessels. Armor she needs, as Asashio's main weapons are her torpedoes, though her guns can be used in certain situations. And it is her torpedoes which make this ship unique, owing to a few unique properties they posses. Namely, Asashio is equipped with deepwater torpedoes somewhat similar to those found on the Pan-Asian destroyer line. They have increased flooding chance, are stealthier, can only hit battleships and aircraft carriers, and have a whooping 20 kilometer range while still retaining 67 knots of speed.

As a result of Asashio only being able to damage battleships and the rare aircraft carrier with her torpedoes, she is highly specialised towards these things. She only has her guns to deal with cruisers and fellow destroyers, leaving her quite vulnerable to both ship types. However, do not be afraid to use Asashio's guns, as strategically engaging certain targets for a capture point can lead to the difference between a win and a loss. Using her concealment to avoid unwinnable fights is also a valid strategy, and can keep her in the game for longer.

Pros:


    Cons:

      Optimal Configuration


      Commander Skills

      Asashio, like most other Japanese destroyers, makes use of the "standard" destroyer skills; Priority Target, Last Stand, Torpedo Armament Expertise and Concealment Expert. After those four skills, captains can start customizing her to their preferences. The two 3-point skills, Survivability Expert and Superintendent are useful for increasing Asashio's survival and offensive capabilities, while the 1-point skill, Preventative Maintenance, proves to be another common destroyer skill.

      Asashio is somewhat unique in that she is one of only a few destroyers that can make good use of the 2-point skill, Torpedo Acceleration, as the -20% range debuff that the skill gives brings her 20 km torpedoes down to 16 km; more than enough range for almost any engagement. The 5 knot boost they give her torpedoes in exchange give them one of the lowest reaction times in-game.

      If Torpedo Acceleration isn't to your fancy, all the other 2-point skills, with the exception of Expert Rear Gunner could be used instead.

      Camouflage

      Being a Premium ship, Asashio comes with her own Permanent Camoflage. Her Type 10 camoflage will give you the standard benefits, meaning a 3% reduction in Detection Range, 4% additional dispersion for incoming shells, -10% on your ship's service costs and +50% on your earned ship XP.

      Other camoflage can be used as well, if you desire to earn more Credits or XP. The best choices here are the Promotional Camoflages for their higher than normal benefits. Worth a special mention here are the gamescom camo for additional Credit gain, and the camoflages that were given out during the Lunar New Year's 2018 missions for a specialized gain of normal XP, Captain XP or Free XP.
