Z-39 — German promo premium Tier VII destroyer.

The last sister ship of destroyer Z-23 belonged to a series of ships laid down after the start of World War II (Zerstörer 1936A Mob). She carried 150mm guns. During 1944-1945, the ship underwent an overhaul with a considerable reinforcement of her AA defenses. This, however, required that one of the ship's main guns be demounted.

Player Opinion

Performance

Z-39 has surprisingly good concealment for her tier, and for a German destroyer. In fact, most of Z-39's characteristics can be described the same way. Her 150 mm guns are some of the largest put on a destroyer in World of Warships, only matched by her compatriots Z-23 and Ernst Gaede. She has surprisingly good AA while ignoring the effects of those destroyers with defensive fire, and a decent striking arm of torpedoes which reload fairly fast and travel quickly.

The first unique thing about the Z-39 is her guns. Being 150 mm guns, there are a few things different from other guns found on similar tiered non-German destroyers. They can deliver devastating salvos to enemy ships should the AP manage a full penetration, and her HE packs a good punch as well despite the limitations of German HE damage and the gun's slow reload. Unfortunately, Z-39's four guns share the same reload as the tier lower Ernst Gaede, despite her also having four 150 mm guns with identical handling. The only thing Z-39 holds an edge on gunnery wise is her longer range, as she has a nearly kilometer advantage over Ernst Gaede. While her guns are certainly powerful, it's nothing you cannot find a tier lower. Her torpedoes are a similar story, though the German destroyer line is somewhat known for all ships having similar torpedoes. In fact, her torpedoes are entirely identical to the ones found on a fully upgraded Leberecht Maass, making them fairly unremarkable other than the noteworthy German traits of good speed and stealth.

Her AA is another unusual trait, possessing one of the most potent anti-aircraft arrays at her tier for a destroyer. Unfortunately, the effectiveness of this armament is dampened somewhat by the ship's lack of a Defensive Fire consumable. As such, she loses out to those destroyers capable of using DFAA—namely, the Mahan and Sims. Her health is another point of interest, following the typical German trend of having quite a bit of it. In fact, she has the highest destroyer health at her tier.

Z-39 provides a good, well balanced destroyer platform to operate from. She had tools to react to any threat, break away from those she can't handle, the health and concealment to control engagements with enemy destroyers, and the armaments to deal good damage to enemy vessels. All in all, she is a very capable ship, a destroyer standing strong at tier seven.

Pros:

  • Has access to the Tier VIII module Concealment System Modification 1 (Reduces the detectability range of the ship and aircraft carrier's squadrons: -10% to detectability radius. / +5% to the dispersion of enemy shells fired at your ship.), allowing the Z-39 to sneak around the seas.
  • Fairly quick torpedo reload.
  • Has access to the Hydroacoustic Search (While active, detects all enemy ships and torpedoes within the specified radius, without regard of obstacles such as smoke and terrain.) module.
  • AP rounds can quickly devastate cruisers with citadels at mid-to-close range.
  • Incredibly high hit point pool for a Tier VII destroyer; the hit point pool rivals those of Tier IX destroyers.

Cons:

  • Takes large amounts of HE damage
  • Lackluster HE performance
  • Average torpedo alpha strike

Research

As a premium ship, Z-39 doesn't have any upgrades to research

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

The recommended upgrades for Z-39 are as follows:

Slot 1 Provides several options for captains. Main Armaments Modification 1 (-20% to the risk of main battery becoming incapacitated. / +50% to main battery survivability. / -20% to main battery repair time. / -20% to the risk of torpedo tubes becoming incapacitated. / +50% to torpedo tubes survivability. / -20% to torpedo tubes repair time.) is recommended to improve the survivability of the ship's weapons. Magazine Modification 1 (Reduces the risk of magazine detonation: -70% risk.) can instead be mounted to reduce the risk of a magazine detonation. Captains can also choose to mount the Hydroacoustic Search Modification 1 (Increases the action time of the Hydroacoustic Search and Short-Range Hydroacoustic Search consumables.: +20% action time.) or Engine Boost Modification 1 (Increases the action time of the Engine Boost and Emergency Engine Power consumables.: +50% action time.) upgrades in Slot 2. These upgrades increase the action time of their specified consumable.

Commander Skills

Key skills for Z-39 are similar to those of most destroyers, with the addition of Expert Loader to improve the efficiency of her guns. Because of her 150 mm guns, Z-39 cannot make use of Basic Firing Training and Advanced Firing Training to improve her main battery reload and range, respectively.

Consumables

Z-39 can equip the following consumables:

Camouflage

As a premium ship, Z-39 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.

Signals

A typical flag setup for a destroyer works best for Z-39, featuring Sierra Mike (+5% to the ship's maximum speed.), Juliet Charlie (-100% to the risk of your ship's magazine detonating.), and the two fire flags India X-Ray (+1% chance of causing a fire for bombs and shells with a caliber above 160mm. / +0.5% chance of causing a fire for bombs and shells with a caliber below 160mm. / +5% to the risk of your ship's magazine detonating.) and Victor Lima (+1% chance of causing a fire for bombs and shells with a caliber above 160mm / +0.5% chance of causing a fire for bombs and shells with a caliber below 160mm. / +4% chance of causing flooding.). As Z-39 is a premium ship, economic flags such as Zulu Hotel (+50% Commander XP earned for the battle.), Equal Speed Charlie London (+50% XP earned for the battle.), will boost the XP earning potential of the ship, and captain XP.
