we got well had the belfast which really didn't work out all to well so well in fact it had to get pulled from sale, this has left a gap in the game for a british CL premium this is my idea for a good replacement. i would recommend they add HMS Kenya (14) at t̶i̶e̶r̶ ̶6̶ ̶(̶y̶e̶s̶ ̶t̶h̶a̶t̶'̶s̶ ̶r̶i̶g̶h̶t̶ ̶t̶i̶e̶r̶ ̶6̶)̶ tier 7 to supplement the fiji and replace the Belfast (please note i am not referring to the ships already owed in game) as the British premium CL (the kenya is the same class as the fiji) ball park stats would be almost the same as the fiji's including the British flavor of AP only shells. Displacement: 8,530 tonnes standard 10,450 tons full load Length: 169.3 m (555 ft) Beam: 18.9 m (62 ft) Draught: 5 m (16 ft) Propulsion: Four oil fired three-drum Admiralty-type boilers Four shaft geared turbines Four screws 54.1 megawatts (72,500 shp) Speed: 33 knots (61 km/h) Range: 6,520 nmi (12,080 km) at 13 kn (24 km/h) Complement: 730 Armament: 12 × BL 6 inch Mk XXIII naval guns in four triple turrets 4 × twin QF 4 in (102 mm) Mark XVIguns 4 × twin 40 mm Bofors AA guns 3 × quadruple QF 2 pounder ("pom-pom") AA mounts 6 × twin 20 mm AA guns 2 × triple 21 inch (533 mm) torpedo tube mountings Armour: Belt: 83 mm (3.3 in) Deck: 51 mm (2.0 in) Turrets: 51 mm (2.0 in) Director control tower: 102 mm (4.0 in) Aircraft carried: Two Supermarine Walr however i would reduce the range of the main guns to 12.6km range ( worse than the Leander only just better than the emerald) with slightly worse concealment say around 10.5km detection range. to compensate for the appalling range she would keep the 2 aircraft that were removed later in her life, as well as having the British flavors smoke and AP only shells. consumables would be 1 smoke, 2 spotter plane/fighter (the smoke would be the creeping type like the Perth just because i like the look of it) 3, hydoacoustics basically a gimped fiji at tier 6 with its 1 main feature being like the belfast the ability to spot for it's self in smoke. basic stats that would differ to the fiji HP 27500 (slightly worse than the leanders) Rudder shift 8.5 seconds worse than the leanders much worse than the fijis Torpedos the 533 Mk V (emeralds stock torpedos) concealment 10.5km (by ship) 9.5km (by air) 5km when firing guns in smoke. the air detectability is a huge drawback compared to the leander and fiji at 6.7 and 7.3 respectably what do you guys think?
