[[Ship:|]] — N/A promo premium Tier  N/A.

Due to a good balance of her main characteristics, Kagero was the most successful destroyer design in the Imperial Japanese Navy. She had extremely long-range, high-speed, oxygen-fueled torpedoes that made her considerably superior to all ships of her type in terms of torpedo armament power.

Player Opinion


' is the Tier VIII entry on the IJN "torpedo boat" branch. Captains who have moved up from Akatsuki will find ' familiar in many ways. Both should be accustomed to the A-X-Y turret arrangement of the main battery, her handling characteristics are nearly identical (similar turning circle radius and rudder shift time), and her anti-aircraft suite is still hardly worth mentioning. So, what's new?

For starters, '’s guns reload a little faster, though they do give up some range. This gives her more of a fighting chance when cornered by an enemy gunboat destroyer (such as Benson), especially if said enemy is already wounded. With that said, however, captains who have progressed this far up the line should know by now when to hang in a gun duel against an enemy destroyer and when discretion is the better part of valor — never court a gunfight with an American or Russian destroyer with lots of health. '’s detection radius is improved over Akatsuki; not only is her base detection radius of 6.84 km the lowest of all high-tier Japanese destroyers, she can equip Modificación 1 del sistema de ocultación: -10% to detectability radius. / +5% to the dispersion of enemy shells fired at your ship. for a radius of 6.2 km.

' has some fairly glaring deficiencies compared to her counterparts at Tier VIII, though. Her speed is fairly pedestrian, her anti-aircraft guns are ineffective at shooting down enemy planes, and her main battery reload and turret traverse times are painfully slow. Unlike Akatsuki, she has two quad torpedo launchers, foregoing the tactical flexibility of three triple torpedo launchers. As nasty as her upgraded F3 torpedoes are — and they hit very, very hard — their reload time means that getting off more than a few salvos in a match is tough. Luckily, ' can give up Plantilla:Smoke Generator in exchange for Plantilla:Torpedo Reload Booster. This allows her to force an 8-second reload time on her torpedoes once every four minutes. Given her best-in-tier detection radius, this will be a worthwhile gamble for many captains.

The Japanese destroyer line becomes challenging to excel in at high tiers, but Kagero provides all the tools necessary for captains to do just that; they need only bring patience and a willingness to learn how to handle her.


  • Lowest detection range of all Tier VIII destroyers.
  • Fast, powerful torpedoes that hit like freight trains.
  • Good handling; same turning circle as her predecessors, quick rudder shift.
  • Gains access to Plantilla:Torpedo Reload Booster, allowing her to launch 16 torpedoes within ~10 seconds.



Availability of researchable upgrades for ' is as follows:

  1. Hull: Upgrade to Hull (B) for improvement in several characteristics, including +15% health. Research of this module unlocks progression to IX Yugumo.
  2. Torpedoes: Upgrade to Type93 mod. 2 for swift, truly deadly, fish.
  3. Gun Fire Control System: Upgrade to Type8 mod. 2 for an extra 10% main battery range.
Captains going for a hybrid build might prefer the Gun Fire Control System module earlier. Captain's pick for this one, there's not really a wrong answer.

Optimal Configuration


The recommended upgrades for ' are as follows:

Torpedo Tubes Modification 1 further protects her tubes from incapacitation and adds 5 kts to torpedo speed. Modificación 1 de los sistemas de tiro : -7% main battery dispersion. / +20% torpedo tubes traverse speed. / +5% secondary battery firing range. / -5% secondary battery dispersion. and Plantilla:Main Battery Modification 2 help her weak artillery if a hybrid build is desired.

Commander Skills

Concentrate on survivability, sneak, and torpedo performance. 'Grease the Gears' may prove useful, especially if you have an extra point to spend.

Plantilla:Commander Skills 3 DD


' can equip the following consumables:

' captains must choose between equipping Plantilla:Smoke Generator and a downgraded version of the Plantilla:Torpedo Reload Booster consumable that Shiratsuyu and Akizuki have access to.


Considering that Kagero is a standard Japanese torpedo ship captains should focus on flags that increase her ability to cause damage over time and improve her torpedoes. It should also be noted that as a tech tree ship it is up to the captains discretion when running economic flags. While there is benefit to doing so it is not going to garner the same as a premium ship.
