flagshipicon Z-42 - Tier X German Destroyer 1945

Z42 was the name given to the planned German Type 1936B destroyer, ordered in Feb 1941. She was cancelled later in the year, and the name Z42 would be reassigned to the Spähkreuzer 1938-class Scout Cruiser originally named SP3.

Z-42 Commemorative Flag
The Z-42 destroyer project was extensively changed several times, and ships that entirely differed from one another appeared under the designation at various stages. They were united only by the place of their planned construction—Germaniawerft (Germania shipyard)—which had three fastened rings depicted on its emblem.

 Key Features

Key Features

Unlike her sister ships, Z42's main battery is composed of dual-purpose gun, which are spread between five twin 105mm mounts.
 
In terms of gameplay, Z-42 is reminiscent of Harugumo due to her quick-firing guns with increased armour penetration and good AP shell damage. She is quite capable of countering enemy destroyers and supporting allies with covering fire.
 
Her torpedo armament is represented by two four-tube torpedo launchers with average characteristics for the Tier. The ship's small HP pool is offset by her good concealment and speed.
 
As far as consumables, Z-42 has access to a Short-Burst Smoke Generator with a short action time but large number of charges, Engine Boost, and Hydroacoustic Search with improved action time and acquisition range.

  1. They went from overpowered a bit to nerfed into uselessness. Can't be used as a torp boat anymore, and is nothing special as a gunboat.
