The Fubuki has 23 mm of steel armour on her hull, 8 mm on her superstructure, and 3 mm over her main firing tower. Her guns carry 3.2 mm of anti-fragmentation armour. She has 197 crew, which is on the low side compared to other comparable rank destroyers, makes it easier for her to be knocked out quicker than other destroyers. Her guns are very large and are easily knocked out and her engine/smoke funnels are quite simple to hit as well. Her secondary armament is hard to hit, but there's so little of it, that it doesn't mean much. If shells land in the mid-section, they will most likely knock out at least one torpedo mount and one or both engines. There is a silver lining here, though; her ammunition is stored just below the waterline, making her somewhat difficult to ammo-rack.

50,000 IHP coming out of four Kampon boilers and two Kampon 'Ro' geared turbines give her a max speed of ~65 KM/H, which is fairly middle of the road for comparable destroyers. She has a 5.4s rudder shift which is his is decent enough mobility, but won't win any prizes compared to other destroyers. The main issue here is that she out-turns her main battery, so you may want to be careful with the rudder.

{{main|Type 3 (127 mm)}}
 
  
The Type 3 127 mm gun found on the Fubuki in three twin mounts is the 'B' model Type 3. They are located in the front and rear of the vessel: one in the front, two in the rear and the rear guns are super-firing. It has HE and HE-DF shells available to it. The HE shell has 54 mm (0° angle) of penetration at 1,000 m, dropping off to 27 mm at all angles at 10,000 m. The HE shell also has a velocity of 872 m/s and overall is an easy shell to lead at range. It carries 2.2 kg of explosive filler. The HE-DF is not worth loading, as the Type 3 mount's turret traverse speed is too slow to be effective against aircraft. The main battery is also large and easy for enemies to knock out with only 3.2 mm of protection. She has a 7.5 s reload speed with a stock crew and a 5.5 s reload speed with a fully aced crew.

The anti-aircraft weaponry on the Fubuki consists of two twin 13.2 mm Type 93 machine guns with a fire rate of 476 RPM. They contain 120 rounds of ammunition per gun and have a reload speed of two seconds, giving them decent uptime. These Type 93 machine guns can use HEI or AP heavy belts (3 HEI/AP | 1 T) or a universal belt consisting of 1 T | 1 AP | 1 HEI | 1 AP ammunition. The AP belts have 26 mm of penetration at 10 m, dropping off to 12 mm at 1,000 m; while the tracer round in the HEI belt has 10 mm of penetration at 10 m, dropping off to 6 mm at 1,000 m. They traverse reasonably well and only planes directly over you will be difficult to aim at. It is worth noting the 127 mm Type 3 'B' gun can elevate to +75°, however, the elevation rate and horizontal traverse speeds are far too slow to be used effectively. Overall, the Fubuki's anti-aircraft defence is poor at best, as the sheer lack of mounts require precise aiming and don't have a good 'fear factor' for enemy pilots.

The Fubuki has three triple torpedo mounts of a 610 mm calibre. They have reasonable firing arcs, although you will need to show some broadside to use them. They do not carry an onboard reload. These torpedoes are the Type 90, which have good speed - 85 KM/H or 52 MP/H - and a 7 km range. The Type 90 carries 480 kg of TNT equivalent explosive, which is only beaten out by the Yuugumo and Kiyoshimo's Type 93s. Overall, they are strong torpedoes for their 4.0 BR, given their good range, fast speed and large explosive filler. She has access to a 'Torpedo Mode', giving her extra range for less speed.

Fubuki has good torpedoes, meaning she could be used as an effective kiter to send torpedoes towards your enemies. This is an even better tactic in AB, as the torpedo reloads will allow you to saturate areas. Her guns are mediocre at best, but the rear-heavy armament also works well if she's kiting away from her enemies. Use the rudder and engine to dodge incoming shells, since her low crew count makes her easy to be destroyed.

The Special-Type Destroyers represented in-game as IJN Fubuki (which is actually Ayanami of the 2nd group of Special-Types) were designed in 1922 due to the Washington Naval Treaty. Under the criteria of a speed of 39 knots (72 KM/H), a 4,000 nautical mile range and a strong torpedo armament, the class were ordered in 1923. Their armament and size were very good for their time and remained a fair enemy up to the end of WW II. They were designed to 'cruise' in the Pacific, as the bow was shaped to provide protection against the weather. Built between June 1928 and March 1933, they fall into three main groups: The Fubuki class, using the Type 3 'A' mount, the Ayanami class, using the Type 3 'B' mount and with other changes, and the Akatsuki class, which had three boilers and a torpedo launcher/turret. However, their heavyweight caused stability issues and after the Fourth Fleet Incident, they were rebuilt in 1935-1937 with more ballast, a slightly different bridge, and less gun and torpedo ammunition. Eight Ayanamis also were retrofitted with Type 3 'C' guns. These rebuilds increased their weight further to 2,000 tons, and over 2,400 with a full load. The Ayanami we have in-game was sunk in November 1942; USN battleship Washington shelled her and causing heavy damage resulting in its scuttling by fellow Ayanami-class ship, Uranami.

The Fubuki class, 2 group, Ayanami (1936) is a rank III Japanese sub-chaser with a battle rating of 4.0 (AB/RB/SB). It was introduced in Update 1.89 "Imperial Navy".

General info

Survivability and armour

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 armament separately. Don't forget to mention the size of the crew, which plays an important role in fleet mechanics. Save tips for preserving survivability in the "Use in battle" section.

If necessary, use a graphics template to show the most well-protected or most vulnerable points in the armour.

Mobility

Write about the ship’s mobility. Evaluate its power and manoeuvrability, rudder rerouting speed, stopping speed at full tilt, with its maximum forward speed and reverse speed.

Armament

Primary armament

Provide information about the characteristics of the primary armament. Evaluate their efficacy in battle based on their reload speed, ballistics and the capacity of their shells. Add a link to the main article about the weapon: {{main|Weapon name (calibre)}}.

Broadly describe the ammunition available for the primary armament, and provide recommendations on how to use it and which ammunition to choose.

Secondary armament

Some ships are fitted with weapons of various calibres. The secondary armament is defined as the weapon chosen with the control Select secondary weapon. Evaluate the secondary armament 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 anti-air armament, even heavy calibre weapons, belong in the next section.

If there is no secondary armament, remove this section.

Anti-aircraft armament

An important part of the ship’s armament responsible for air raid 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 is no anti-aircraft artillery, remove this section.

Torpedo armament

Torpedoes launchers are standard equipment on many ships and boats. Torpedoes are a significant means of defeating an opponent. Evaluate the position of the torpedo launchers, discuss the ammunition available, firing specifics such as dead zones, features of the torpedoes themselves, etc.

If there is no torpedo armament, remove this section.

Special armament

Depth charges, mines, rocket launchers and missiles are also effective in skilled hands and can take an off-guard opponent by surprise. Evaluate the ammunition of this type of armament and rate its performance in combat.

Usage in battles

Describe the technique of using this ship, the characteristics of her use in a team and tips on strategy. Abstain from writing an entire guide – don’t try to provide a single point of view, but give the reader food for thought. Talk about the most dangerous opponents for this vehicle and provide recommendations on fighting them. If necessary, note the specifics of playing with this vehicle in various modes (AB, RB, SB).

Pros and cons

Summarize and briefly evaluate the vehicle in terms of its characteristics and combat effectiveness. Mark its pros and cons in the bulleted list. Try not to use more than 6 points for each of the characteristics. Avoid using categorical definitions such as "bad", "good" and the like - use substitutions with softer forms such as "inadequate" and "effective".

Pros:

Cons:

History

Describe the history of the creation and combat usage of the ship in more detail than in the introduction. If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/ History" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/(Vehicle-name)/History) and add a link to it here using the main template. Be sure to reference text and sources by using <ref>, as well as adding them at the end of the article.

Media

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