I have Cleveland and Pensacola... Huh, they seem bigger than some battleships on field. Not complaining BUT US cruiser is really easy to hit just because they are sooo huge in game. Is this how it was in real world, that those cruisers were the size of battleships?

Don't forget the field of vision in WoWS is heavily distorted. When you see a BB close to your ship, it always appears smaller than it really is. 

There's a huge picture out there in the forum that accurately compares the size of all ships ingame. And since it directly compares the 3D models from above, it is much, much more accurate than what you see in battle.

 

I think Pensacola was quite large for a CA at its time, but IJN CAs (Myoukou...) are probably even bigger.

Heavy cruisers and larger light cruisers were pretty long, not much shorter than same era BB length normally. Beam only about 55%-65% of BB's though.

Just look at the French tier 4 CL, it might be bigger than any tier 4 (maybe even tier 5) BB :Smile_teethhappy:

Have you got a link to that? Would be interested :Smile_honoring:

Found one, but it's slightly out of date.

Open it in a new tab.^^

 

Pensacola is actually quite far in it. It's just behind the König in lenght, while Takao, Myoukou and Hipper are a bit behind Kutuzov, which is itself as long as the Alabama.
