Conq is more immediately dangerous, but Khab is more able to work in caps, which wins games. Depending on how aggressive you are, that answer should vary.

Couldn't agree more.

Khab. You can hit the Conk. The [edited] Khab will laugh at your attempts to shoot him, and keep up an endless stream of HE, and spotting you for everyone else on his team. You can't run away from him like you can the conqueror. Just had a game, where I got lit up by both a Khab and a Conqueror. I turned and ran, but even the IA can't outrun the Khab, so he just kept on spotting me, and he and the conq kept on lighting me up. finally extinguished the flames, just get into concealment, and the Khabs final salvo light me on fire, spotting me for everyone.

 

The worst part is that armor that laughs at cruiser HE. On the PTS, me in a Donskoi, a Benson, and a BB chased a Khab that had gotten around to our CV. In a cyclone, we went charging up, just as I pop radar to spot him, he gets the CV, he shatters mine and the Benson's HE, then smokes up when the radar gives out. I charge down, he pops out, laughs off the 12 rounds of 180mm IFHE and torps me. He (on 2K HP) proceeds to nearly kill the full HP benson, who had to use AP to take 3 minutes to kill him.

 

I normally ignore the whiners who claim such and such a ship is OP, but I'm with them on the Khab, that ship is ridiculous. The Conqueror too, but I can at least hit and damage the Conqueror.

A Minotaur won't citadel you, and if you're at a slight angle he's stuck aiming for superstructure.  So basically the same thing as him being in smoke 12km away.

 

The Des Moines at that range can citadel the BB, every 5 seconds.

Yep, this. Kill the Khab's support and you can hunt it down at leisure or just ignore it altogether, the Conqueror is a flame throwing monster that (dis)appears at will.

Khab is worse I think.

It's constant harassment can make you have to alter your plans to deal with or avoid it.

It's hard to hit sometimes, and can be really annoying.

The Conqueror is just another BB to me.  Though I'm only at the Monarch now, which is actually the first RN BB I enjoy.  Although I did kinda zip through the earlier tiers and probably haven't played them enough.

Seriously you play up the Des Moines' abilities far too much. I fear Moskva's 22cm railguns punching through my armor at anything other than bow-in far more than any Des Moines that eats citadels from my 15.5cm secondaries.

At 6km they're both ignoring your armor until you get an angle.  The Des Moines just kills you much much faster.

ANY ship I encounter is capable of deleting my BB, some can just do it faster than others. They're ALL threats.

Stealth shima running the 72kts torps while the guns are pointed the wrong way.  Has happened to me on maybe 2 occasions (usually you don't fight shima's with those kind of balls) but when it does happen, just go to port.  Do not pass Go.  Do not collect $200.

Of the OP's choice?  Khab's annoy the hell out of me more.  When you tell the team to focus them, it makes no difference.  At least people generally focus Conqs when they realize long-term leaving Mega-Zao on the battlefield is an error.

Definitely the Khabie. I hate being harassed by them because at range and without support, there’s nothing you can do.

 

To be honest, I’d rather detonate than get toasted by a Khab.
