Player Opinion

Performance

Romulus is an improvement from Tatra, as it has one more main gun and two more torpedo tubes. The tubes have a rather odd arrangement - the first tube has two whereas the second has four, the only time when a Tier II destroyer has a quadruple launcher. That said, the torpedoes do not deal much damage to enemies, which is a trait of European destroyers. As with most destroyers at its tier, it has great speed and rudder shift times. When playing Romulus, it is important to know her weaknesses in a destroyer to avoid mistakes - these include her poor torpedo firing angles and slow turret rotation.

Pros:

  • Good reload speed (5 sec.)
  • Quad torpedo tube
  • Good speed and rudder shift time

Cons:

  • Hp on the lower side even when upgraded
  • Low armor
  • No smoke generator
  • Only one quad torpedo tube, and poor firing angles
  • Very low torpedo damage
  • Slow main gun rotation

Research

Availabe researchable modules for Romulus, in suggested order:

  1. Main Battery: 120mm/45 Bofors M1924 has significantly faster reload and shell damage.
  • Hull: Upgrade to Hull (B) for more health. Research of this module unlocks progression to Tier IV Klas Horn.
  • Gun Fire Control System: Upgrade to SUO Mk 3 Mod. 2 for an extra 10% range on the main battery.

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

Recommended upgrades:

Commander Skills

Consumables

Romulus equips the following consumables:

Camouflage

Type 1, 2, or 5 camouflage can be equipped for credits;

Choose one and append after semicolon above: Types 1 or 5 are recommended at a minimum to reduce detectability range. Types 2 or 5 are recommended at a minimum to reduce the accuracy of incoming shells.

Players who wish to spend doubloons can equip Romulus with Type XX camouflage that lowers her detection radius, reduces the accuracy of incoming shells, reduces her repair costs, and increases the amount of experience she earns.

Signals

Note: Use of the Juliet Charlie signal makes detonation impossible.
