The new RN CLs dont have "propulsion mod2" baked in?

The old RN line of CAs (Leander, Fiji, etc) have engine performance equivalent to propulsion mod2 included, which is evident in their acceleration, etc.

 

However my experience with Devonshire and Albemarle seems to indicate that they do not have this feature - Albemarle in particular is very sluggish away from a standing start. I hadn't noticed any of the CCs or reviewers mention this aspect, so does anyone know for sure whether this is a feature of the RN CLs?

Just for the record:

Old RN Cruisers are CLs. New ones are CAs.

 

And cant the CAs slot Propulsion mod 2 unlike the CLs, whicht cant slot that?

I remember watching some CCs doing reviews on the new British heavy cruisers (Yuzral comes to mind as one who pointed this out) and correct they don't have propulsion mod 2 baked in. 

 

My suspicion being this because WG don't feel they need it, the light cruisers do need it seeing as they tend sit in smoke a lot where as the heavies appear to designed more around kiting and hard cover

They don't have it. You don't really need it baked in - Albemarle's rudder shift is pretty quick (same as Edinburgh) and her turning circle small, so fit the Propulsion Mod and you'll be well equipped.
