Great ship, was worried it would be too weak but they got it just right. The monkeying they did with the fuse timing really paid off, the AP is great! Haven't really tested the AA under a true focused attack yet because not many CV's and most just avoid me, but it looks solid just shooting down planes that get too close, albeit just self defense AA really but to a high level with the rocket AA. Played this one with a clanmate STRIKKER123 who also had a Hood, they ran very well together. I recommend this ship, and even though it came with a 12 point captain I put my 18 point British cruiser Captain in it instead and he is right at home.
