Supertest: Pan-European Tier VI Destroyer Västerås

5 min read

Well for this ship, the background will be quite easy, I sadly have none to present to you.

I really didn’t find anything about that design and the same goes for the Tier VII. All we know is that it’s a Swedish design.

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 hull is 16 mm thick, the superstructure is 13 mm thick and the gunshields are 7 mm thick.

Personal Opinion

Well… the conclusion isn’t better than the previous ships… Her HP pool is on the lower end of the spectrum but at least, her firepower is actually decent compared to the other destroyers at Tier VI. The only ships with worst spotting range by sea are Guépard and Aigle but it’s only an 800 m advantage and Västerås isn’t the most suited to fight these.

The Västerås is just yet another disappointing ship in this line, not much to say except that.
