Fiji: Don't Discount Secondaries

Just got out of a way-too-close scrap with 2 DDs playing Fiji.  My secondaries finished off the first, letting me focus on the second.  This is not the first "Close Quarters Expert" my Fiji has earned.  I have a habit of always selecting the nearest DD for secondaries regardless of what ship I'm playing (except DDs of course) and it pays off in Fiji.

 

With AFT, secondary range is 6.3.  BFT boosts rate of fire to 89 rpm per side.  I put those skills on for AA but the secondary boost is a nice side benefit.

 

I'm not suggesting that this is the British cruiser equivalent of Bismarck secondaries!  However, it's worth getting in the habit of selecting ships close to you - and not just DDs.  If a cruiser is within 7 km, why not?

Royal Navy secondaries aren't too shabby.  

 

Like you, I kind of figured this out by accident when I got to Leander.  The lack of having to choose between DE and AFT makes it an automatic for a semi-secondary/AA build.

Secondaries and Torpedoes at 6.0km - 7.2km Emerald to Neptune. Charge my smoke cloud will you? I'm prepared to fight back.

If a ship can earn the Mike Yankee Soxisix flag, I guess she should fly them too!

A good topic Landin_Skipper,

 

I too have discovered the amazing secondary powers of Fiji... for the first 10 matches I did every single time I seen my secondary battery open fire at ranged enemies higher than 5km and actually hitting and doing damage I was like :amazed: I do have secondary mod 2 but do not even have BFT or AFT... yet.

 

In one match I did my secondary battery did over 1000 damage to a BB at over 5km with only two shots... started a fire too that went on to do more damage :teethhappy: Going to put my Fiji Commander who has BoS, FP, SI & SE on the Tier X British CL but I tell you when I recruit a dedicated Fiji commander I am definitely going to give them BFT, AFT & MFFSG abilities so I can have maximum Tier VII CL secondary fun. :D

I didn't think Fiji's secondary battery count was significant enough to warrant SBM2, etc.  Now, Edinburgh at the next tier is a different matter entirely.

I never considered SBM2 for Fiji. However, with BFT and AFT the secondaries were sufficient to sink a DD off to the side of the cruiser who also was trying to kill me. 

 

The British cruisers need their main guns, and the more accurate the better.
