Tokyo Express SA is worthless. Might be worth considering if you're building a long lance swarm and need to save some points here and there, since you can boost the range-3 torps on Nagatsuki instead of more expensive destroyers.

There's only one way to put it: this ship SUCKS. Go get a Matsu instead.

Matsu costs two points less with better guns, AA and ASW, though one less torpedo at ranges 0 and 1 and less armor (one armor as opposed to two, so who cares? It's getting hit anyway and has the same hull points)… Terutsuki costs the same with better guns, AA, ASW and VA… And the fact that you can only gain points from each of the actions once (ie you'll only get two points if there are islands on your opponent's side of the map and you get a Nagatsuki beside it), no matter how many you bring, makes it seem even less appealing…

BUT, this unit isn't exactly horrible, as its torpedoes are around what you normally get at this price, and those torpedoes are certainly the primary (maybe even sole) reason you'd consider taking one of Japan's destroyers. Everything else about this unit is less than adequate, and there are certainly much better options available to Japan, but it isn't the worst unit ever…
