What would you think of the French cruiser Chateaurenault as premium cruiser at Tier IV.

https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Châteaurenault_(D606)

(sorry there is only a French wikipedia page)

In short: After the war France got two Capitani-Romani-class DDLs as recompensation. They armed them with captured German weaponry.

 In game that would translate too:

Hitpoints: slightly larger than the Kuma I would expect around 25 000 hp

Main battery: 6 105mm L/55 known as secondaries from many German ships

                Reload time: 4 seconds

                HE damage: 1 700

                All the other stats would be the same as the German gun

Torpedo tubes: 4x3 standard French 6km torps

AA:        the main battery is DP so                             50 damage at 4,5km

                the high tier French 57mm 6x2                  78 damage at 4,5km

Speed: 40 knots

 

All in all it would be an Italian ship with German weapons in the French tech tree. So a real Pan-European ship ;).

Huh. You want Capitani Romani class DD to join tier 4 CLs ? It's like adding Khabarovsk as a tier 5 CL... 

No, it should be at least a tier 8 DD or even a tier 9 freemium.

It's got only the hull of a Capitani Romani. The armament is so weak for a cruiser that everything above Tier V would wreck it.

Six 105mm guns ? You know that WG can totally go nuts with their stats and make it a pretty decent tier 8/9 ? Benson got 5 guns after all. Just give them Akizuki stats or something and we're done with it.

But making a low tier CL out of a tier X DD hull doesn't sit well with me at all.

How about first giving Capitani Romani to the italians ? Just sayin'.

That would be the best thing, in my book. But the DD line is well beyond the horizon...
