Supertest: Pan-European Tier V Destroyer Visby

5 min read

The Visby-class was a group of 4 destroyers built for the Swedish Navy between 1942 and 1944. The ships would serve until 1982 with all ships being rebuilt as Frigates in 1965.

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

For the armor, the ship is protected by 10 mm of armor except for the gun shields that are only 7 mm thick.

Personal Opinion

Well… at least this time, the ship might have the lowest HP pool but, she has Repair Party that… barely brings her above the average. Her firepower is unchanged compared to the tier IV so it’s still decent but not great at all considering the fact that now, you can face tier VII ships.

For the concealment, this time the ship isn’t the worst… but still is terrible. The Hill, the Podvoisky and the Jaguar have all worse concealments but they are also all better ships so far and except Jaguar that has her speed and saturating middle-section, the others have a Smoke Generator going for them.

So… yeah, another ship that is decent at best that will most likely be as obnoxious to play as you could imagine… Boy, this Pan-European Destroyers tech-tree doesn’t look promising at all…

  1. I see a lot of playing against bots with these ships in my future.
