Because of the smoke. It prevents players to rush a battleship, smoke up right before detection range, close the gap and torp. With lower detection range, they would have to remove torpedoes.

 

I don't mind the bad concealment, you are most likely kiting and firing with your guns in open sea with this ship anyway. And you have smoke + speed if you want to go dark.

You cannot even delete a T3 BB with a broadside of your torps, unless the BB already is damaged. Something like an Amagi can take both sides and still be just under half its hp pool.

 

And it's a joke to say this is the reason, because apart from some cruisers that can torp rush in the open and not die (top tier Krasny Krim and Furutaka, Hipper/Prinz Eugen against half the BBs they can face, low tier RN cruisers...), with proper concealment build, you can cover the distance to get into the enemy's face with a Trento before the smoke runs out. Just afterwards you are dead. Perth and Huanghe with less speed, but better torps (and torp reload booster on Huanghe) and less distance to cover are far superior options for this kinda silly play. Not to mention, if you have noone spotting, they at least have hydro. Once the Italian fighter plane dies, they are basically charging blind.

Unlike Leander, which is same tier, and doesn't have torps and smoke, and 10ish km detectability? And also, usable one. Smoke on Trento is anything but good, and Trento's detectability when firing from smoke is 9km, detection on 15!!! km?? 5km difference.

Incredible.
