Player Opinion

Performance

The Wickes takes a little getting used to. At first, its health is so lousy it's barely worth getting into combat. You gain some more durability with the B hull, at least. All the same, the Wickes is usually outperformed by the Wakatake in a torpedo knife-fight. An effective strategy is to weave side to side to keep up gun fire from all 4 turrets and launch both sides of torpedoes.

All in all, it's an okay ship when you get used to it, but can be a drag at first.

Pros:

  • Excellent maneuverability
  • Good gun traverse
  • Able to drop waves of torpedoes from both sides
  • Good concealment

Cons:

  • Gun reload is a little slow
  • Like all DDs, basically no armor
  • Guns are arranged such that you can only point a maximum of 3 guns at any target
  • Torpedoes are outranged by the IJN counterpart (Wakatake)
  • Effectively no AA
