Just curious if anybody has tried this for the secondaries.  I have AFT and manual secondaries, and I will have 4 skill points available in about 100k xp and thought maybe it would be worth it to take the skill.  If anybody ahs tried it, is damage done worth no longer setting fires?

I haven't touched the KMS BB line at all through I have tried IFHE on my Dunkerque and its pretty worth it against even pursuing high tier cruisers I sank a Prinz Eugene with it,

 

but to the point if you can get your secondaries firing at enemy DDs and cruisers as much as you can I'd say it's worth it.

Problem lies in what you would have to give up to load it. Aeroon did a test in the training lab - video's on the forum somewhere...

NO.... FIres are so much more fun..... watch them BURN, after they have to hit repair when you start 3 fires in 8 seconds...

Don't bother. If I get them within 9 km, the secondaries will generally kill them really fast already without BFT or AFT, not a 19 point cap yet. With those two I can see no reason why I would need special shells. Hitting those two will mean the ship will melt anyone in 10 km, very fast. 

 

IHFE just seems like it's trying to do what the Bizzie simply doesn't care about.

I played around with it a LOT and prefer the extra range from AFT and the damage from fires far outweighs the little extra damage from Fused HE.   The word on the street is that IFHE on your secondaries is hurting more than it helps until you get up to GK.

I prefer more fires and I just can't justify a 3rd 4 point skill and AFT/Manual Secondaries is far more important to me.

Also fires do some serious damage with the Bismarck.

I'm pretty sure that KMS secondaries are already special in that the HE pens more than normal, 1/4 instead of the normal 1/6, so there isn't any point in taking it.
