So a Chappayev with a respectable torpedo suite but no radar. Well, she seems interesting at least.

It certainly is hard to find a justification to spend real money to be little more than fodder for T10 ships. The Tier 8 MM is too skewed at the moment for me to even consider buying any more T8 premiums.

I'm interested. But concealment looks meh. Just about 11 kms with all bonuses if I'm right?

 

should be 10,55 with unified CE.

 

So a Cruiser that can launch 20 torps with 13,5km range? Those will get nerfed xD

I get the destinct feeling that those torps will stay as they are now, in wg eyes a ship must have a gimick, and since it dosent have smoke or radar, well, theyr keepers, i say buff them to 14km :Smile_trollface:

Yes , problem is the captain but perhaps it is possible to use a DD captain with OK results.

Sadly there seems to be a huge number of ships in the works that have been presented , but are not released ,must be record level now.

That is allot different than the Huanghe. Would be fun to have crawling smoke, but than again that would be a useless gimmick at T8

It is actually a Kutuzov with better torps, less range and no smoke.

 

T10 PA DW torpedos and TRB at T8 are ridicules choice. I doubt this will pass a testing phase. I hope that WG won't try to balance ships around torps and consumable rather than the other way around.

honestly, I dont see the problem. The maneuvers to actually get twenty torps out are completely ridiculous in any real combat scenario, and even if you do the launches will be spread out over at least half a minute, if not more (too lazy to try that out with the Kutuzov). I mean, it's hella gimmicky and can be deadly in the right situation, sure, but... I dont see this being particularly overpowered.

And hey, at least its not  yet another premium with radar. So that's gotta be a win in and of itself, right?

No smoke isn't that much of an issue I don't think. I've played Kutuzov without using it on occasion but obviously it lowers your aggression if you can't smoke spam.

 

The whole T8 Cruiser thing tho might be an issue. WoWS MM for T8 isn't quite as bad as in WoT where anything T8 and balanced is borderline unplayable as your games are dictated by how good the T10 tanks are on either team. 

 

This one won't be for me personally. As Kutuzov seems better. Torps look amusing but that's what PA DDs are for. Good torps on a Cruiser that stands a high risk of being one shotted at the ranges the torps are good for doesn't feel good to me.

If they don't nerf the bejazus out of the thing during testing, I might be tempted, although it would probably spend much of its time messing about in Coop, and Ops - my cruiser play is pretty poor (even by my low standards), and that's where most of my other premium cruisers spend their time as a result...

 

It looks like it might be something different to play, although whether that translates as 'good' is an entirely different kettle of piranhas.

13.5 km DWT with 0.8km detectability..

That is bad... incredibly bad..

That Is So bad, If they don't nerf those torpedos before that thing goes live.. I am gonna buy it!! :)

 

A Chapayev with stealth torping capabilities???

Is this a wet dream or not?

 

I am not looking at anything else.. I am sold on those sexy fish!!!

My guess would be deep water torps with 0.2km detection range.

Looks interesting but as soneone else said, there are lots of ships that have been super tested but have not made it into the game yet
