I have read numerous comments about the British heavy cruisers, and everyone seems to have a fairly good idea of what they want on the tech tree. I thought I would share my thoughts on the topic. So since their is already a British light cruiser tech tree, I think they should add a heavy cruiser tree starting at tier 6, just like the American Light cruisers which have recently come out. I'm not sure what ships would be good for Tier's 8 and 9, but tiers 6,7,and 10 I have an Idea for. At tier six I would put HMS York, with the Exeter as a premium. For some reason people want the York as a T5, which doesn't make much sense to me. HMS Leander is a T6 and I wouldn't say she's better than the York class, and IJN Aoba has the same exact armament as York and they both have impressive torpedo armament. So in my mind HMS York should be a tier 6, for it would be a better suit for her. And her sister HMS Exeter stood up to a harsh punishment of 11-inch shells fired by Admiral Graf Spee during the Battle of the River Plate. I think she has proved her toughness, and that her class can be put at T6. At T7 I would put a County class, maybe HMS Kent. And For T10 I would put the HMS Collingwood, a super cruiser that was designed but architects but never launched.
I would agree on both counts. For a heavy cruiser tier, historically, the Caledon and Danae evolved into the much larger Cavendish/Elizabethan class (Frobisher, Hawkins, Effingham, Raleigh). They would fit in very well at Tier 5 (very compatible with the lighter armed Emeralds which were done at the same time).
Then, York/Exeter at 6, followed by Norfolk/Dorsetshire at 7 (as the final refinement of the County class to be completed), and then the cancelled Northumberland & Surrey at Tier 8. After that, everything is paper.
