Talk about the vehicle's armour. Note the most well-defended and most vulnerable zones, e.g. the ammo magazine. Evaluate the composition of components and assemblies responsible for movement and manoeuvrability. Evaluate the survivability of the primary and secondary armaments separately. Don't forget to mention the size of the crew, which plays an important role in fleet mechanics. Save tips on preserving survivability for the "Usage in battles" section. If necessary, use a graphical template to show the most well-protected or most vulnerable points in the armour.

Armament

Primary armament

4 х Turret10.5 cm SK C/32 cannon
Ammunition100 rounds
Vertical guidance-10° / 70°

The 10.5 cm cannons, while being smaller than the guns of its contemporaries, can still perform effectively with its lower reload speed. It offers a little more forgiveness to the player, while often offering less to the target. The damage dealt by the HE round with the base fuse, along with its reload, allows the player to whittle away at the target, and with a little aiming, can render the target completely defenceless.

Secondary armament

Turret4 x 2 cm/65 Flakvierling 38 automatic cannon
Ammunition8000 rounds
Belt capacity40 rounds
Fire rate480 shots/min
5 х Turret2 cm/65 C/38 automatic cannon
Ammunition2000 rounds
Belt capacity40 rounds
Fire rate480 shots/min

Some ships are fitted with weapons of various calibres. Secondary armaments are defined as weapons chosen with the control Select secondary weapon. Evaluate the secondary armaments and give advice on how to use them. Describe the ammunition available for the secondary armament. Provide recommendations on how to use them and which ammunition to choose. Remember that any anti-air armament, even heavy calibre weapons, belong in the next section. If there is no secondary armament, remove this section.

Anti-aircraft armament

2 х Turret2 x 3.7 cm SK C/30 mounting
Ammunition4000 rounds

An important part of the ship's armament responsible for air defence. Anti-aircraft armament is defined by the weapon chosen with the control Select anti-aircraft weapons. Talk about the ship's anti-air cannons and machine guns, the number of guns and their positions, their effective range, and about their overall effectiveness – including against surface targets. If there are no anti-aircraft armaments, remove this section.

Additional armament

Setup 16 x 533 mm G7a torpedo
Setup 214 x WBG depth charge
Setup 36 x 533 mm G7a torpedo
2 x WBG depth charge

Describe the available additional armaments of the ship: depth charges, mines, torpedoes. Talk about their positions, available ammunition and launch features such as dead zones of torpedoes. If there is no additional armament, remove this section.

Usage in battles

The Type 1939 is a really capable destroyer with effective anti-ship capabilities best used supporting allied ships and destroying light vessels or lightly armoured destroyers. The Type 1939 has good manoeuvrability but it has some trouble fighting ships at its BR because of its unnusual gun calibre, so the best tactic is to dodge and attack in short bursts.

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Great reload speed
  • Doesn't catch on fire very easily
  • Its fast-firing weapons are easy to aim

Cons:

  • Insufficient crew, a frequent cause of ship loss is crew depletion
  • Weak guns which will struggle damaging destroyers at its battle rating
  • Your low speed will make you an easy target in battle for other destroyers and ships with torpedoes

History

Referred as the workhorses of Kriegsmarine, the Type 1939 general purpose destroyers were created to escort blockade runners and battleships. They saw action in every major German operation, from Norway until the end of World War 2.

Excellent additions to the article would be video guides, screenshots from the game, and photos.
