Has anybody else found Fletcher outperforms Z-46? I am checking their specs and Z-46 on paper and with a 19 points captain (vs. Fletchers's 17) looks much better, however I just can't make it work. Even with hydro and faster torpedo reload time seems to struggle.

Just curious, really wanted to make the German DD work well.

FYI, German "hybrid DDs" are outgunned by IJN "torpedoboats". And comparing... meh DD to gold standard is exactly that.

The only reason to fear the Z over a fletcher is the smoke hydro of 6km in a DD fight as the Z will spot you first, I run Jutland so i get 400m gap to play with between hydro as for guns the Jutland beats a Z and Fletcher same with fletcher vs Z

The Z-46 has only 5km Hydro.

Fletcher has better gun DPM and much better HE. The Z-46 only real torpedo advantage is the reload, other than that the Fletchers much harder hitting torps are better overall.

 

Not to mention the smoke. So basically the Z-46 trumpcard is that hydro, meaning if you want to outperform a Fletcher you have to play around that.

Z's advanage is maybe the Healthpool and Hydro, which is also useful against Random Torps. Fletcher has hard hitting torps and better HE.  

 

I think this year i will try Jutland and Black. Blacks radar may be useful (not much cruisers) and Jutland: Hydro, good Guns, Heal...

Yeah, Healthpool, Torpedo reload and hydro . Three very tempting things, isn't it? Also I think rudder time is better on the Z.
