To take IFHE or Not to take IFHE? That is the question

Any ship firing in nighttime should just go with DE because you need the fires to see where the enemy are.

Yes I just got it, wondering about IFHE or not?

 

I was spamming a midway deck just now with HE and all I was getting was breaks

That is a simple logical question:

  1. What armor (thickness) or armor threshold do you what to penetrate with HE? (16mm, 19mm, 21mm, 25mm, 27mm, and so on)
  2. Can your guns already pen this thickness? (check your stats in port)
    1. Yes? Then there is no need for IFHE!
    2. No? Then take IFHE!
  3. Finish.

They can pen 20mm max, IFHE would give 27mm pen

 

But is it worth it?

Personally, this would be a yes for me. In the Colbert otherwise, you would have trouble combating other cruisers in gunfights. I mean obviously she works better behind islands and unspotted, but you will be forced into unfavorable situations eventually and being able to effectively combat other cruisers is important. I would say it's more than worth it.

It is cause all cruisers are 25-27mm . After the IFHE changes will be less effective but still 25mm cruisers will suffer.

You need BB grade HE with 1/4 HE pen rule to not-break HE shells on T10 armored CV decks.

This ship is hard to master, atlanta arcs at tier x and no smoke

 

Knew It and called it.

 

That is gonna be a death trap for 99.9% of players.

 

Keep us updated mate and what you think about it.

Midway has a 90ish mm deck, you will only ever get breaks except for the superstructure and the ends. 

I stick IFHE on everything for the cruisers. 27 mm will pen all the US cruisers and most of the other T8/9 cruisers. I've not looked but I assume 5"/13 cm guns?

12.7 cm, but functionally very similar.

16 x 127mms and too my surprise you get all barrels shooting when broadside, I thought you wouldn't because of the weird turret placements but she does. 

 

I love her and shes french what more could you want, the skill floor is high though due shells arcs and speed. I feel like I am shooting in slow motion.

You dont need turret traverse, they turn with 30deg / sec. Thats plenty. Either take AR or LS. Better yet, also scrap 2 T1 skills and take both. (what you need EL for? Reload is 3 sec, i dont think you waste an opportunity by switching 1,5 sec slower) Then probably also PM, because PT i think you need that one. Also no SI? Not sure about that. but maybe you dont need that extra heal anyway.

Id consider it on Smolensk too. its like 10% or more for those 2, which aint bad. Sadly, dont have the points. For Smolensk you also could have like 40 captain points :cap_haloween:

Meh, I would save the last 3 and go with CE. This is my Italian cruiser captain. You have enough turrets that you don't need to worry about modules and clearly AR and LS are more use than anything else you can spend 4 points on.  A Haragumo with 2k HP left and AR is epic, this thing will be beyond epic.
