Moskva and Zao really don't fear battleships so much because they can effectively outtrade BB's at max range. Moskva can even tank BB's bow on a lot of times. Des Moines obliterate parked BB's if they have something to shoot over - and Hindy is kinda like Moskva but maybe not as good. t10 crusiers are great though. Still though I wouldn't call them > battleships. Nothing kills battleships like a battleship - and if you have more battleships come mid game - enemy crusiers are in a lot of trouble. Because when taking fire from multiple battleships - cruisers get crushed.
