In case you are wondering, which PA DD is the best to skip, it is the T8. 

 

Benson C-Hull (4 guns only) but without Benson's DefAA or Loyang's Hydro. 

And it even has worse rudder shift. 

No thanks.

But that radar on a DD at T8 !

 

I suppose it will be very appreciated in competitive environment. 

You'll need a DD buddy for smoke though..

T8 cannot equip the upgrade, so you are stuck with 15 sec. 

Smokes are more useful in randoms and competitive.

I just saw Flamu's video on the Hsienyang. "Fifteen seconds of radar is not enough to kill your enemy, and then you'll be sitting with neither friends nor smoke and waiting to die", was his verdict (kinda sorta).

Now, I don't usually take Flamu as a baseline for my own expectations in this game, but if he can't kill someone in fifteen seconds, no one can.

 

I'm probably going to go directly for the Shenyang, and then set my sights for the Gadjah Mada. Totally badass name on the last one, right?

Or do I miss out on too much if I skip past tiers II and III?

Not saying she is good or bad. but

Torp detection is a lot less .7 over 1.1 for same speed

mid and close rang AA much better.

Benson B hull 4x20mm and 2x12.5

Benson C hull 4x20mm and 4x40mm  

Hsien Yang 6x20mm and 8x40mm

Not sure if its a good thing but Hsien Yang has longer range main battery.

Hsien Yang better smoke

 

Ichase says tier 7 is very good.. Shes an N class so want her.

What is an N-class? And why is that desirable?

Overall package is way worse.

The missing gunpower hurts even more, since you cannot torpedo other DDs.
