Supertest: Pan-European Tier II Destroyer Tátra

4 min read

Happy New Year everyone!

The Tátra-class was a group of 6 destroyers of the Austro-Hungarian Navy before World War I. Out of the 6 ships, only the SMS Lika and Triglav were lost, both sunk by mines during the Battle of Cape Rodoni on 29 December 1915. The rest were transferred to Italy.

Characteristics of the line

Currently, the concept of European destroyers brings the following features:

  • Very fast torpedoes with relatively low damage and long-range;
  • Artillery is similar to that of American destroyers: quite effective in close combat but weaker than that of artillery-focused destroyers;
  • The speed of the new destroyers is relatively low: 35 knots at Tiers VII — X. It can be increased by an Engine Boost consumable found in a dedicated slot, giving a standard bonus of 8%;
  • Starting from Tier VII, the AA defense of European destroyers has a large area of effect and deals good damage;
  • Presence of Repair Party: at Tiers V — VIII it is the same as on British destroyers, and at Tiers IX and X this consumable will be active for 4 seconds longer;
  • Starting from Tier VIII, ships are equipped with Surveillance Radar in a dedicated slot. It has an action time of 15 seconds and a range of up to 7.5 km;
  • Lack of Smoke Generator and relatively high detection range: when fighting with other destroyers for key areas it’s better to rely on Surveillance Radar and torpedoes.

The armor

The Tátra is entirely covered with 6 mm of armor, move along, nothing to see here.

Personal opinion

Overall, the ship looks quite sad. The torps are indeed fast for this tier with also the longest range but the biggest issue is the VERY low damage that they deal and also their terrible flooding chance. The ship has also the worst concealment by a fair margin at this tier and lacks the Smoke generator. Add to this the fact that she only has 2 peashooters as main armament and you end up thinking that you don’t want to face enemy destroyers with her.

  1. Sad indeed. But at least she’s not Swedish, unlike the rest of the line.
