On German destroyers, the armor penetration of HE shells was increased from 21 to 32 mm for 128 mm guns, and from 25 to 38 mm for 150mm guns . The change affects the following ships:

  • VI Ernst Gaede
  • VI T-61
  • VII Z-39
  • VII Leberecht Maass
  • VIII Z-23
  • IX Z-46
  • X Z-52

Having studied statistics and followed your feedback, we've found the opportunity to buff German destroyers. In terms of firepower they were a bit worse than same tier destroyers. Now, with new penetration values, these ships will be able to penetrate the plating of cruisers and fore- and aft-ends of battleships, which will undoubtedly increase the potential of their main caliber guns and emphasize their versatility.
