Most likely. Last collab all HSF content could be bought.

We already have a Tier VIII HSF Harekaze in game, with the option to mount different hulls/guns.  Curious to see how the new Tier VIII Harakaze 2 differs.

Sorry but no, while the camos are nice Arashi/Harekaze 2 just does not interest me in the slightest.

 

She has, hands down, the worst DPM of the tier 8 DD's, even beating out poor old stock Z-23 in that regard, and doesn't have, at least not of her last iteration, the built in ifhe to try and make up for it.

Hmm.

Unlike Harekaze it gets the Improved Kagero Torpedoes instead of the Stock ones.

But has way worse Guns in exchange.

 

So its basicly a Kagero with Hydro that cant take Reload Booster and has weaker Guns.

 

 

Its Meh I guess.

Its still basicly a Kagero and thus a Good Torpedo DD.

So its not like its a Bad Ship.

But it also doesnt offer anything Interesting to make it worth it to get it instead of just using Kagero because the Hydro is not really providing any Advantage if your dont have the Guns to actually do anything with it.

That's what I keep saying. She has, at least last time I checked, the WORST DPM of any tier 8 dd.

 

Let that sink in for a few. She even gets beaten by such other notable DD's in that regard as the stock Z-23, the Harekaze with the 127mm singles, and indeed (by a fair ole amount of dpm at that) the Kagero herself.

Well. As I said. Its a Torpedo DD. So it doesnt matter too much. As its not Supposed to Engage in Gunplay against enemy DDs.

So its not really a Bad DD.

 

Its just that I dont see anything Special with it that would Justify having it instead of a Normal Kagero.

Guess its more of a Collectors Item for HSF Fans.

And my counter point is that sometimes you HAVE to for one reason or another.

Wasn't saying she was, just saying she's not for me, and why she's not.

This makes me curious:

"HSF Hiei, which is similar in parameters to Kongō in the top configuration"

What does that mean, is the same model with changed stats - or also an altered model?

Because irl Hiei had a differrent AA-suite then Kongo.

And I could fall for Hiei, it looks gorgeous with its (mostly) historical painting in light-gray :cap_money:

Sounds like the former to be honest.

According to WOWSFT Harekaze 2/Arashi has German smoke, hydro, harder hitting torps. And 150mm guns.

That's plenty of difference to the original. It's not necessarily better though.

Musashi camo ? The ship cannot be obtained anymore so the target audience is limited ... I wonder who had the clever idea ...

My only gripe is, as you can see, the school prefers a darker palette:

So, HSF has dark colors? Didn´t know that. But I am considering the purchase of the HSF-camos and even the HSF Hiei because these are the closest color-patters to what the ships looked like in reality. The dark or greenish camos WG offers as perma-camo - no idea how they came up with that.

 

Irl warships were light-gray and WG gives us dark gray, some circus-pattern and black*.

HSF uses dark themes, WG gives bright.

I don´t understand this decision-making.

 

(* while ships which were black, like the V-25, don´t get their black camo)

IJN didnt use much of camouflage until late in the war, thats why "in real life" those ships were grey but even the grey tone would depend on the shipyard that build the ship, they did camouflage the ships in green tones when they were in harbor and their carriers had their flight decks painted in disruptive patterns to throw off aim or to confuse (Zuiho deck was painted to look as a battleship).

 

HSF uses similar paint scheme of the JMSDF (besides the color stripes) with a darker grey.

That explains the "variety" of gray that I saw on the pictures. Didn´t know it depended on the shipyard, other navies often had standardized tones like "Pattern xy".

In harbor? :cap_hmm: So the green has some validity, but still: WG sends us to battle in harbor-schemes :I (aka sends us into battle in pajamas :Smile_trollface:)


From all I have seen my conclusion is that this is how the ships looked like mostly
