 In the two months following the surrender of Japan, the destroyer escorted five different convoy groups between the Philippines and Tokyo Bay. Ordered back to the United States for inactivation, Benson got underway from Yokohama on 4 November 1945 and moored at the Charleston Navy Yard, on 6 December. She was decommissioned there on 18 March 1946, placed in reserve, and assigned to the Charleston Group of the Atlantic Reserve Fleet. In the two months following the surrender of Japan, the destroyer escorted five different convoy groups between the Philippines and Tokyo Bay.

Player Opinion

Performance

By any form, Lo Yang is practically a Benson in Taiwanese hands but she comes with two nasty surprises: you can forego speed boost for Hydroacoustic Search or Defensive AA Fire, as well as an alternate set of faster swimming — yet shorter ranged — torpedoes. A dynamic premium, Lo Yang can provide the edge needed with any selection of play style, from attempting to surprise the enemy with long-range torpedoes, to making them shake in their boots in your near-suicidal torpedo run, or even forcing other destroyers into a melee. She will serve captains well provided that they are well versed in how her original US counterpart handles.

LittleWhiteMouse's Premium Ship Review: Lo Yang from the NA forums


Pros:

  • Fast turret traverse.
  • Has access to the Hydroacoustic Search consumable, which turns the destroyer into a bloodhound.
  • Has access to the Defensive AA Fire consumable as a option.
  • Two torpedo loadout options.
  • Good rudder shift.
  • Impressive handling characteristics; she responds to her rudder quickly and has a tight turning radius.
  • Captains that are familiar with the American Tier VIII destroyer Benson, can perform well in her.

Cons:

  • Torpedoes may have a "damned if you do, damned if you don't" feeling; the default torpedo has a reach of 9.2km at 55 knots which is the Benson 's top torpedo; the improved torpedo moves at 68 knots but has a shorter range of 6km, requiring you to charge into near-suicide ranges for a torpedo run.
  • Hydroacoustic Search is in the same slot as Engine Boost so choose wisely.
  • Like its premium colleague Błyskawica, the ship is not good for captain cross-class training other than for her fellow Pan-Asia destroyer colleague, Anshan.
  • Lo Yang is basically a (C) Hull Benson bearing the Taiwanese ensign, so you have only four (4) guns instead of the five (5) on the Benson (B) Hull.

Research

She has a second optional upgrade for torpedoes that travel faster in exchange for shorter range.

Consumables

The Lo Yang has access to a variety of Consumables:

  • Like all ships, she has access to the Damage Control Party
  • As a Destroyer she gets access to Smoke Screen and Engine Boost, she benefits from smoke more as she gets US DD smoke, which lasts longer than other nations smoke.
  • Like US DD's from tier 5 onwards the Lo Yang gets the option to use Defensive AA Fire instead of Engine Boost (Note US Destroyers from tier 6 to 8 require the C Hull to use Defensive Fire)
  • Like German Destroyers, the Lo Yang gets access to Hydroacoustic Search, making her an excellent destroyer hunter as she can detect other Destroyers in smoke using Hydroacoustic.
  • Being Tier VIII it is recommended to use premium consumables due to their shorter cool down duration, especially Damage Control Party as the 40 second cool down will serve you better than the 60 second cool down.

Camouflage

As a premium ship, Lo Yang comes included with Type 10 camouflage that lowers her detection radius, reduces the accuracy of incoming shells, and increases the amount of experience she earns.
