    If you look at Worcester, she lacks any of the 127mm/38 DP mounts. But Worcester's main battery should count as AA.

    It was something the USN's BuOrd wanted to have for WWII but the 127mm/38 and /54 mounts won out and were quick to implement.

    The light cruiser line can mount all of these at the same time. Like, the only consumables they don't have is smoke. That's a tad overkill.

    It's like Neptune's and Minotaur's dual purpose 6inch guns, although these also have DP 76mm guns. Also, the French De Grasse (as actually built, not the one found in game) was equipped with 127mm/54 of French manufacture.

    More aa than minotaur at T10 is rather academic. The main selling point should be the consumables.

    Though island hugging syndrome will be pretty apparent I think..Worcester should have less armor and larger dimensions than minotaur...basically a free lunch for my battleships, abject repression for Worcester.

    And the Battleship mafia wins agains. Eh, I should stop deluding myself: WoWS is like a casino, the BB mafia is the only winner.

    Since when was I the representative of the battleship mafia.

    Btw I meant less armor than des moines oops. It's the usual secondary protection in question here, I doubt the bow/stern and deck armor will match DM. We'Lloyd see how a light cruiser survives at T10 without smoke, battleships aren't the only threat to an exposed minotaur.

    Probably going to feel like the Brits with more armor, avg HE round, no smoke, either Radar or Deff AA in the equipment slot

    @Shinano Actually they'll have access to almost all consumables (smoke excluded) at the same time
    Guys, just to clarify: the current WIP plan is regular cruiser loadout but HAS and Def AA in different slots, and for T9-10, we plan DCP, Heal, HAS, AA and Radar - in different slots.

    Armor weakness is 1 thing and citadel volume and alocation is another. UK cls have enormous citadel and with weak armor is a death sentence.
    If their armor is weak but citadel tiny or lowered like high tier us BB they will over penetrated all the time and damaged lightly from AP.

    If Cleveland is any indication, the citadel will be at waterline. Doesn't stop her from being citadeled all the same, as any member of the BB mafia good BB driver would tell you. It's just a bit harder to do.
