    Ship Discussion: USS Monaghan

    The WoWS Devblog just unveiled another T6 Premium destroyer, the USS Monaghan:

    ST, American destroyer Monaghan, tier VI

    Hit points - 13900, plating - 16 mm.

    Main battery - 4х1 127 mm. Firing range - 12.5 km. Maximum HE shell damage - 1800. Maximum AP shell damage - 2100. Reload time - 4 s. 180 degree turn time - 12 s. Maximum dispersion - 109 m. HE shell initial velocity - 792 m/s. AP shell initial velocity - 792 m/s. Sigma value - 2.0.

    Torpedo tubes - 2х4 533 mm. Maximum damage - 11733. Range - 6.4 km. Speed - 64 kt. Reload time - 87 s. Launcher 180 degree turn time - 7.2 s.

    Maximum speed - 36.5 kt. Turning circle radius - 560 m. Rudder shift time - 3.4 s. Surface detectability - 7.0 km Air detectability - 3.5 km. Detectability after firing main guns in smoke - 2.7 km.

    Available consumables:
    Slot 1 - Damage Control Party
    Slot 2 - Smoke Generator
    Slot 3 - Engine Boost

    All stats are listed without crew and upgrade modifiers.
    So, a C-Hull Farragut, without DefAA? I'm not sure it's that much worth buying. If you want a USN DD trainer, you already have Sims or Kidd, and Monaghan isn't really famous (okay, it helped USS Ward at Pearl on December 7th, and it foundered during Typhoon Cobra, but that's not much)

    @Keyan_TTK IMO, Tier VI DDs in the current MM are terrible. MM screws the tier over and the DDs here are facing regularly Tier VIII DDs. Tier VIII DDs, like BBs of the tier, take a significant jump in stealth and capability.

    Farragut vs Benson.
    Farragut vs Akizuki.
    Farragut vs HSF Harekaze.
    Most especially consider the stealth disparity. FFS, Harekaze doesn't even need to open up on the Farragut once she outspots it, others can do that job for her and she just highlights Farragut. Monaghan will be the same.

    IMO, Tier V-VI Premiums are a bad deal due to the current MM. The only real standout is the OP AF Julius Caesar at Tier V. It's a broken ship pulling in numbers like a Tier VIII BB.
