Supertest: Japanese Superdestroyer Yamagiri

3 min read

Historical basis

Just like the major part of the superships/tier XI, Yamagiri is a hypothetical design from Wargaming regarding a potential follow-on design to the Shimakaze-class and never built super-Shimakaze.

The ship’s main battery consists of three twin turrets with fast-firing 127 mm guns. The torpedo armament consists of no less than three sextuple torpedo launchers.

Just like the rest of the superships, Yamagiri has her own unique ability which allows her to quickly switch between two types of torpedoes while in combat.

Special Ability

Capacity to switch between two types of torpedoes in battle.

Torpedo type shifting time: 15s.

Ship’s preview

Camouflage

For the classic reminder, this is a ship in testing, anything can change so don’t look at her like she would already be released.

The Armor

Personal Opinion

Out of all the superships around, Yamagiri might be the least interesting one.

Her special ability is relatively useless as you get to choose between the 12 km torpedoes and the miserable 20 km ones that get spotted from the moon. Firepower-wise, she isn’t anything remarkable as, even though she gets the same turrets as Hayate, she only gets a 5s main battery reload time instead of 4.5s.

The ship is… pretty damn forgettable.

  1. Yeah, a torp boat that can drop 18 torps at a time, the most powerful torps in the game, and can switch on the fly between 12k and 20k torps… yup, the best torp boat in the game is pretty forgettable. SMH. Get a clue.
