Player Opinion

Performance

Pros

  • Very agile and maneuverable, can out-run and out-turn almost any ship
  • Wont get detected unless you are very close to the enemy

Cons

  • You have a torpedo range similar to detectability range, thus leaving you a small window of attack


Early Research

Both hull and torpedoes can be researched. These can be researched independently. But being a destroyer, getting the torpedo upgrade should be a large priority.


Historical Info

若竹 Wakatake, Bamboo sprout
The Wakatake-class destroyers (若竹型駆逐艦 Wakatakegata kuchikukan) were a class of eight 2nd-class destroyers of the Imperial Japanese Navy.


The Wakatake-class destroyers were essentially slightly modified Momi-class ships with a deeper draft to improve handling characteristics in heavy seas, particularly against rolling. Weaponry layout, general arrangement and silhouette were all identical with the Momi class. As with the Momi class, a number of types of turbine engines were used for propulsion. Asagao was built with Parsons impulse turbines, Yūgao with Escher Wyss & Cie Zoelly turbines, and the remaining vessels with Brown-Curtis turbines.

The small displacement and shallow draft of the Wakatake class limited their utility as fleet escorts. As with the Momi class, in the 1920s and 1930s, they were mainly used in Chinese coastal waters.

General Characteristics:

Type: Destroyer
Displacement: 900 long tons (910 t) normal, 1,100 long tons (1,100 t) full load
Length: 83.8 m (275 ft) pp, 85.3 m (280 ft) overall
Beam: 7.9 m (26 ft)
Draught: 2.5 m (8.2 ft)
Propulsion: 2-shaft Mitsubishi-Parsons geared steam turbine, 3 heavy oil-fired boilers 21,500 ihp (16,000 kW)
Speed: 36 knots (67 km/h)
Range: 3,000 nmi (5,600 km) at 15 kn (28 km/h; 17 mph)
Complement: 110


Armament:

  • 3 × Type 3 120 mm 45 caliber naval gun
  • 2 × 7.7mm machine guns
  • 4 × 53cm torpedoes
  • 20 × mines

(Asagao, after July 1944)

  • 2 × Type 3 120 mm 45 caliber naval guns
  • 4 × Type 96 25 mm AT/AA Guns
  • 4 × 13 mm Type 93 AA guns
  • 2 × 530 mm (21 in) 6th Year Type TTs(3 × 6th Year Type torpedoes)
  • up to 36 × depth charges
