Actually, do you think that Perth would be a good cruiser for destroyer mains like me? Or is something like Huanghe better?

Perth is way better than Huanghe, in just about every way except AA. I play it as a destroyer escort early, it can challenge caps with a friendly dd & with its hydro & planes, it is immune to incoming torps, even deep waters.  Just give yourself enough smoke time to retreat when it runs out. Its also one of the best endgame ships you can play...

It depends on what you're looking for out of it.  Perth is a nasty customer (better than Huang Meh) but I dont feel like it plays much like a DD.  It's a lot harder with the CV meta now too.

Firstly, I did not realize I tricked you both, because I have an extreme discount on Huanghe. 

Second of all, are there any other cruisers that would be better than Perth for a DD main? Perth sounds plenty good already.

To be honest, I play the Huanghe more than any other ship. 1,538  matches as of tonight. I actually ran into crzyhawk in his Boise last night while in my Huanghe. I really enjoy the challenge it presents, especially in a heavy T8 match. It can do damage if played right, as my 1,960 kills in it will attest. Huh, i just realized my avg XP is now identical to my Perths, so it is a playable ship, it just aint easy...
