Analysis

Isuzu Kai Priority: Low

At first remodel, she has decent Firepower and Torpedo stat, for a light cruiser, meaning she can do Artillery Spotting with okay-ish damage at day and pack a decent punch at night, too.
Her ASW stat also allow her to perform OASW attacks with proper setup.

Isuzu Kai Ni Priority: Medium-Low

Her second remodel actually decreases her anti-surface capabilities, granting her an AA stat boost but especially the best ASW stat of any light cruiser in game and the ability to execute said attack innately, albeit it won't do much damage unless she has actual ASW gear on her.
As such, she's a natural choice to deal with enemy submarines.
She also gain her own Anti-Air Cut-In setups, but those aren't really worth using over the genertic onces in almost any case.


Recommended Roles

  • ASW
  • Anti-air (Second remodel)

Important Info

  • Required for A63, A66, B55, B60, and B72.

I was built in the Taisho period as the 2nd ship of the Nagara-class light cruisers.[1]

Naturally I have great speed but I was also commanded by people like Admiral Yamamoto Isoroku and Admiral Yamaguchi Tamon and other pillars of the IJN.[2] Isn't that amazing?

五十鈴は、大正時代に建造された長良型軽巡の2番艦。
