I got the Yoshino B from North pole tokens BF Crate

I looked at LWM review here

I am trying to decide what to do in outfitting the gear and commander. To me this is an old Deadeye skill ship. I have seen in Random matches where you broadside the Yoshino with BBs because it is a citadel city ship. The torps seemed to be used for running away or area denial, or you kite and dodge at long range as the norm. I played the Yoshino B in Co-Op and it seems very sluggish in turning, which is why to me it get blaps in a turn away in Random matches.

I still have questions on the ship. What good is the ship for other than anniversary rewards? Is this a Division ship? I would like to know how you would upgrade the ship and what commander skills you would recommend. I have a 10 skill commander so far with the ship. Would the Yamamoto commander be the better play with the Yoshino in matches?

Personally, I'm fond of the Yoshino because she's the bigger sister of the Azuma (and I like Commander Azuma's voice).
That said, I like the Yoshino on its own merits, too.
Big guns (for a Cruiser) and a lot of torpedoes with potent warheads make for some fun shenannigans (in Co-op, at least, but I've sailed both ships in other modes, such as brawls).

My current Yoshino build is ...

Main Armaments Mod-1,
Damage Control System Mod-1,
Aiming Systems Mod-1,
Steering Gears Mod-1,
Concealment System Mod-1 (Sometimes I swap this for Steering Gears improvement, for use in modes where concealment is less of a priority),
Auxiliary Armaments Mod-2,

There's a choice of torpedoes available.  
I've selected the torpedoes with a 12 km range.  
For me they provide a maximum damage of 23,767 and a speed of 67 knots.

Consumables are ...
Damage Control Party
Repair Party (5 charges)
Fighter Plane
Hydro-acoustic Search

Captain's skills {for Commander Kirishima (the 2nd.)}
1 point skills = Grease the Gears and Last Stand
2 point skill   = Fill the Tubes
3 point skill   = Superintendent
4 point skill   = Concealment Expert
Total points used = 11 skill points.
(I have 3 un-used skill points that I'm deciding what to do with.)

Hope that helps.

Edited to correct my math and offer Congratulations on your Yoshino-B @Tpaktop2_1 NA🙂
