Supertest: Pan-European Tier VIII Destroyer Öland

5 min read

The Öland-class was a group of 2 destroyers built for the Swedish Navy. At the start, 4 ships were planned but 2 were canceled.  HSwMS Öland and HSwMS Uppland served until 1979 when they were decommissioned.

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

View post on imgur.com

The Öland has the classic high tier destroyer armor. The hull is 19 mm thick, the superstructure is 13 mm thick and the turrets are 6 mm thick.

Personal Opinion

The Öland is overall a solid destroyer. Her guns have a very good DPM and this time, she has torps that actually do a fair bit of damage. As for the concealment, it is excellent with only Japanese torpedo focused destroyers and British destroyers.

I personally appreciate the removal of radar because honestly, that would have just made Pan-Asian destroyers more obsolete than they already are. Now for the Defensive AA Fire… it can be useful against bad CVs that can’t dodge flak damage effectively but overall, on this ship, for now, it’s not the best.
