flag DD Premium Ship Icon Minegumo: Japanese Tier IX Premium Destroyer 1938

An Asashio-class destroyer. Ten ships in this series were built between 1935 and 1939, following a design created after Japan's departure from international treaties aimed at restricting naval armament. In the Pacific War, Minegumo played a role in the invasions of Malaya, the Philippines, and the Dutch East Indies. She also took part in the Battle of the Java Sea and frequently transported reinforcements as part of the Tokyo Express. However, on March 5, 1943, during another transport mission, the destroyer was sunk by an American squadron in Blackett Strait.

Key Features:

In most regards, Minegumo will be quite similar to her sister Asashio. Captains will recognize her slow-traversing, slow-reloading main battery of six 127mm guns, which nevertheless can pack a punch in short engagements. Her main armament can be considered her torpedo battery of two quadruple launchers; while in-game, Minegumo will be able to freely swap between two different varieties of torpedo. One will be long-range, but slow-speed and easy to detect, while the other will be incredibly fast and harder to spot, but with an extremely short range.


Bold captains who enjoy using F3 torpedoes on Shimakaze and Yūgumo to make point-blank attacks will find themselves at home with this ship. She will be best played by using her great stealth to make undetected attacks from close range but can fall back on her longer-range torpedoes when necessary. Captains should beware enemy destroyers and keep an eye on cruisers, as her slow speed and poor damage per minute can get her in trouble when forced to fight these opponents in the open.
