Elbing has superb AP. It’s such a joy to use. The accuracy is also incredible!
Sorry about my Elbing pronunciation complaints.

World of Warships footage of the tier 10 German destroyer Elbing.


  1. My pronunciation complaints are in jest.
    Don’t actually take em seriously.

  2. We need to enjoy this ship while we can, there will be huge nerfs come next update.
    You not shooting the Halland is killing me. At those ranges the Elbing can consistently do 1200 to 2000 damage per salvo on a DD and if that DD is doing evasive some of those overpens will turn into pens. On the thicker DDs, Harugemos, Gearings and Khab you can get the damage all the way up to 6k.

    • May I ask what is the incoming nerf might be?

    • Maybe not.. german or not, the recent trend is to make tier 10s something you want to rush towards, so you’d be inclined to spend money.. but.. idk, could be nerfs but for the average player, flanking and using ap is already hard enough.

  3. damn, those AP volleys are terrifying…. especially to cruisers

    • There are CLs that are made to be DD hunters, there are DDs that are made to be DD hunters. And then there’s this line of DDs that take massive dumps on both CLs and CAs.

  4. Yeah but when is Akagi gonna be a thing

  5. What a time to be alive when a DD can deal 16k in a salvo against a cruiser

    • @Michael D. Uchiha90 I may have been that cruiser, I was super pissed.

    • @Michael D. Uchiha90 that’s disgusting

    • Sounds pretty accurate

    • Arman Sagmanligil

      @Demose Aries I mean, you’re hardly wrong. BBs in WoWs are something of an anacronism, since the invention of the CV, and later the anti-ship missle, meant that their massive guns weren’t really that useful anymore, since a similar explosvie can be sent further at less risk. but hey, they’re a fun anacronism, and i think we can all agree that world of crusers, dds and Cvs would be more boring

    • @Arman Sagmanligil true, especialy within modern tech, most 150mm guns nowadays are automated, can hit a target as small as a nickle at 6km.. and can fire 90 rounds a min of supersonic ultra high penetrating rounds..

  6. 5:50 im pretty sure you can arm AP on the gearing tho. At least Z-52 can

    • I think if flat broadsided not, but most DDs angle when fighting to lower their profile, than with the improved pen angles totally.

    • I wonder how much damage the Elbing could do the the gearing, I mean the maximum damage I did to the Gearing in my Z-52 was 5k 1 salvo and the alpha is 3000 compare to the Elbing 3800

    • @SaiyajinOG true, slightly angle will arm the AP shell even on slim DD like the IJN one, I haven’t got the Elbing yet but I have done 4,5k to a shima with AP

  7. Hindy playing as US cruiser, Jesus, these players makes me eye cancer

  8. Elbing is probably the forerunner of today’s frigates and destroyers which are relatively thin armor and cheap but large

  9. yep, showing broadside to an Elbing is pretty much the same as showing broadside to a Stalingrad.

  10. Heartbreaking

  11. “In Poland they don’t speak German”

    Well, that’s not for the lack of German effort at least.

    • My greatgreatgrandfather was part of that effort , he settled in Greaterpoland in 1891 , my greatgrandfather Klemens Schultz was born in 1898 in Poznan , he fought in Great war on German site , and when ww1 have ended he have take part in Graterpoland uprising … on Polish site , and of course when nazist invaded Poland in 1939 , they throw my grandfather to jail , his oldest son was drafterd to wermaht he lasted 2 week and he joined Polish resistance , Hilda oldest daughter was send to Germany (we dont know what happen to her , she probabbly have died in air raid) , his youngest son Bernard was hideen with mother at Polish friends , and my grandmother at ager 12 was send to Germany as force labourer , she even got nr tatoo … I can tell you for sure that Germans failed big to Germanize Poland 🙂
      (BTW those mythic nazis , where really germans , so no whitewashing history please)

    • @Reksio Hundson cool story.

  12. This is just perspective magic. Colorado is actually longer than Elbing. This just makes for a good thumbnail.

  13. Damn fine carry sir – even in a loss

  14. I don't know my name

    Navy field players:ah I have seen this one
    Wows players:what do you mean?it’s new

  15. I’ve taken an extended break from the game, but I liked the concept of this line from the start! I was worried about execution, but I’ve actually enjoyed playing the 7-9 and def the elbing! There is a challenge to making them work that is very engaging for me. Yes, strong against unaware cruisers, but I eat these DDs alive in any of my DD hunting destroyers! One of the handful of lines wg seemed to balance well(in my opinion)

  16. Actually the ammo is made of tungsten. It makes since considering Germany’s lack of tungsten during the war. Don’t question it

  17. Best part, you can BLAP the CRAP out of Smolensk with that bad girl. Revenge of the Krigsmarine indeed.
