No. Useless for this ship.

 

Do not pick it unless you want to gimp your firechance without any meaningful benefit on the plus side.

IFHE is good when it takes your HE pen over enough armor thresholds to justify the high cost of 4 points. For DD calibers this only really applies to guns >120mm between T5 and T7 and then you need a dedicated captain for the ship. Only exception are the IJN gunboats and even there it lost a lot of value since the pen rule was set to 3/10 of caliber. For these ships the skill will get better in the future, though as the rework reduces its cost and you will be able to combine it with RPF by 'only' trading in PT, AR or whatever other 3-pointer you use.

IFHE? Of course not, it's a waste of skill points. I go full torpedo build on the Freshland...for science! ^^

there are no DDs in the game right now who should take IFHE, not even the IJN 100mm ones. Closest one would be haragumo, where the sheer firepower could under certain conditions outweight the fire chance. Those conditions are farming French or UK BBs, but neither of them like to play close enough to make it efficient farm.

 

IFHE right now is viable only on 150-155mm CLs from T6 up (except KM ofc) and maybe on RU 180mm (those who dont have improved AP angles)

He spamming CLs are having hard time now, since whatever you target, is already burning cuz theres 2-3 Thunderers each side xD

unfortunately they are under the impression everyone should be funnelled to t10. but that is where the game is most broken by forced over simplification and cartoon game mechanics. and the thing that decides if an entity is op or trash is down to a lot of game mechanics outside of what that entity is.

Donskoi, Mogami (155 mm) and Akizuki currently.

 

Akizuki is a holdover from before the IFHE rework, though. I think I'll drop it when I can reset for free after 0.10.0.

Frieslands AP is monster on broadside targets. IFHE is also a waste of skillpoints on that beautiful ship 🛳
