    Yahagi - Once Again

    Yahagi, the JPN Premium T5 Light Cruiser. It fits a unique role of torpedo cruiser. BUT, in the torpedo cruiser role - it well...fails. Even with her unique ability to fire torpedoes beyond her surface detectability range. Its weak hull, weak armour, floaty shells, and poor torpedo angles are manageable. The problem is her ability as a torpedo cruiser. Her torpedo reload is a ludicrous 120 seconds (before captain skills). Thus her ability to function in its primary role is already compromised. The simplest solution would be trading the Speed Booster consumable for the Torpedo Reload Booster consumable. The change would not make the Yahagi overpowered as her torpedoes already have a higher detection range, and she has the aforementioned weaknesses. While she could try to do a more close in torpedo run like destroyers, her poor torpedo angles would make that situational and in many cases suicidal to execute.

    Yahagi question

    I have purchased Yahagi - and do find it disappointing. Yes, the shells float - but their velocity is good at 850 m/s. For some strange reason it seems that beyond 12.5km landing a hit becomes questionable. So the Aiming Systems Module 0 Upgrade has a valid point. However, considering the torpedo load out giving the Torpedo Reload Booster instead of Speed Boost consumable may be the better option - especially considering the 2, yes TWO minute reload time for the torpedo launchers - which is even greater time found on even the Myoko or Mogami. The torpedo booster would still be risk/reward - but keep it in the "theme" as a torpedo cruiser... OR The Yahagi can keep its stats, but change the torpedo reload time to 60 seconds. It keeps all of its vulnerabilities, but now at least can somewhat act as a torpedo cruiser.
