Hi all,

 

I have, somehow, found myself playing T8 DD's. It may not surprise you to hear that I have somewhat mixed results at this level.

 

Kiev has a 12 point captain and Ognevoi has a 9 point, Kiev being played more often.

 

What are the pros and cons of T9 & T10 for Russian DD's, for both types?

I'm guessing I should be training captains up to higher skill levels before attempting to play higher tiers? Or should I be at higher skill levels while playing T8?

Ognevoi is a real torpedoboat with strong guns. Concealment Expert really helps.

Kiev is one of the best gunboats of the line and greatly profits from Advanced Firing Training.

Can't talk much about Ognevoi nor Kiev , since i was past them before the line split . 

For the others well ,

Udaloy : a very good gunboat and if u go Concealment build (recommended) you can stealth torp , works very well as a cap supporter for real DD's , in other words ;  a very fun to use and extremly sexy looking ship ( almost forgot it can use DF).

Grozovoi : i very much enjoy this girl ,  tied with Gearing as my favourite DD's , can get 6km detection so u are finnaly a real DD not just a gun boat , 10km torps , amazing guns (extreme velocity almost feels like Moskva railguns ) however one big downside she fat & clumsy ( u better take the 50% acceleration module ) , her AA coupled with DF is very strong and will make tr 8 CV's cry , 9's reconsider and screw the attack for 10's .

Tashkent : played her when she was tr 8 solid gunboat , can't say much about her on tr 9 , but should be decent . 

Khabarosk : very powerfull Gunboat , she's a CL w/o citadel going 48kts , don't try to play her like a DD u will fail miserably . She can also use Heal Party ( same for tashkent ) but gives up smoke for that  , a very strong ship and don't forget to use that speed . However she's too overspecialized for my taste ,  i like Grozo much more .

hmm ... you need CE for Ognevoi = 10 point captain.

 

I've been through the boats after the split. ATM I have Udaloi with premium camo and it is by far my most favourite ship of the bunch ... Khaba I currently struggle with .... I had a CE+AFT build and it worked for me ... then I switched to a pure AFT build and I cannot get a good game in that.

 

Grozovoi is an Ognevoi on steroids, just turns slower.

Havent played the torpedo line so I cant comment on those. At Tashkent at the moment with gun boats and I really like them. Kiev is much better now at T8 what is was and Tash is a beast at T9. Of course playstyle is totally different from stealth torp boats.

TA with Ogne is a nice skill as your torps become almost DWT like for detection/reaction. The ship is meh however unless you really must torp boat in an RU DD or if you want a Udaloi and didn't get her before the split
