Player Opinion

Performance

Fans of the American destroyer line will be very comfortable in Tier VII premium Sims B. She's fast, highly maneuverable, her guns spit out shells at a amazing 18 rounds per minute, and they turn fast... very fast. Her surface detectability is somewhat high as is typical of mid-tier American destroyers, but is lower than that of her tech tree cousin Mahan at just 7.3 km. Her turning radius is a mere 500 meters, allowing her to quickly and decisively dodge incoming shells and torpedoes.

Sims B captains have a choice of torpedo modules, one that will portend how they intend to play her. Aggressive captains can equip the Mk15 mod. 0 torpedoes and fight in close quarters and around islands. She inherits this style of play from her predecessors like Nicholas and Farragut. Conversely, cagier captains can equip the Bliss Leavitt Mk7 mod. 2B torpedoes and fire them from stealth; however, the longer-legged torpedoes only do a little more than 8,000 damage a pop and travel at a snail-like 49 knots. While the ability to fire torpedoes from beyond her detection range is good practice for Benson and later American destroyers - and a capability that her lower-tier cousins do not have - in this configuration, Sims B’ torpedo armament is best described as "anemic".

While her guns have low chance per shell of setting ships on fire, they put out so many shells that a target being focused will probably catch fire eventually. A reasonable marksman can — with some practice — hit sluggish capital ships like battleships and carriers over and over and over at medium range. She's also very capable of engaging other destroyers at ranges under 7.0 km and quickly dispatching them with her high rate of fire.


Pros:

  • Two centerline-mounted quadruple torpedo launchers, each one able to fire to both sides.
  • Guns have very fast turret traverse; they are always on target.
  • High rate of fire from her main battery.
  • Good acceleration and agility.
  • Fastest American destroyer in the game with a top speed of 38.5 knots.
  • Can mount the Defensive AA Fire (While active, the damage per second of large caliber anti-aircraft guns is increased.) consumable; Sims B’ AA can be made fairly respectable with the right mix of commander skills, upgrades, and signal flags.
  • Can fire up to a range of 15.5km with a captain with Advanced Firing Training.
  • Outstanding turning circle radius of only 500m.

Cons:

  • Very fragile armor and modules.
  • The Bliss-Leavitt torpedoes are very slow at 49 knots and only deal 8,500 maximum damage.
  • The Mk 15 mod. 0 torpedoes are fast and deal decent damage, but have a fairly short range.
  • Like all American destroyers equipped with 127mm guns, she suffers from the notorious 'rainbow' shell arc; it's hard to hit ships at long range.
  • Stock (unbuffed) AA is weak.
  • Has one less main battery gun than Mahan.
  • Above-average detectability for a Tier VII destroyer.

Research

As a premium ship, Sims B doesn't have any upgrades to research.

Consumables

' can equip the following consumables:

Camouflage

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