Damn the Khab is Amazing

So when I started considering grinding the Tashkent for the Khab, I had my doubts.  The stories about the nerfs... That it's not the ship it used to be...  Wow.  Any doubts I've had have been dashed completely.

 

Two Iowas decided to contest the cap.  One decided to focus on me while the other focussed on the two ships behind me.  My only regret is I didn't have another BB to burn to the water line.  Hit the speed boost and use the A-D  hack.  120k later, they were both gone.  Damn this ship is good.  I can't imagine what this ship must have been like pre nerf.

About the same. The nerfs barely affected it.

Exactly.  They nerfed everything other than the things that make it great.....the speed and the guns.

 

No wonder it still handily outperforms all other T10 DD's.

Don't forget the 50mm of bullsh*tium armor.

I miss the 15km range, faster rudder, and 10km torpedus. 

 

Still a great ship though, but it used to be better. Activating Soviet Speed and shoving extra political dissidents into the boilers while using your Stalinium infused Vodka shells and DD rudder shift at 13+km was a lot of fun and made people so mad. Especially when you'd bounce BB shells. KEK.

It is a great ship.  Like it or hate it... OP or not-OP, it's fun to play.  @m373x warned me when I got mine that it was addicting and you wouldn't want to play anything else.  Well, he's right, though I do play other ships, I use Khab more than most.

 

good luck OP, dakka dakka :cap_rambo:

It's very effective against players that can't aim, so 99% of players.

 Truest statement ever stated about Khabarovsk.

I want to point out an observation: Many (Not even "most", I will point out) of our forum's unicums play Khabarovsk a lot.

I just got it and I've seen people give up on trying to hit me and just let me farm them.  That never happens in a Gearing, let me tell you =p. 

 

I've been playing it a few times but still am in the "let's see if I can get away with this" stage of ship ownership and am doing ill advised things in her just to see if I can get away with it.  Best light cruiser I ever played.  It is not a DD, and the selfish nature of playing her is taking me some time to get used to.

yeah thats the same for me, Russian dds have a different mindset than other dds, sadly though lately ive had no choice but to play more as a dd and cap since it seems most games my dds dont, at least they are great late game cappers.
