Wondering what's been going on in test with this ship. 

I've seen it pointed out that she really needs a lot more damage and teeth. In some sort of form. 

Her reload is abysmal, her gun amount is literally 50% Cleveland, her torpedoes are anemic, her armor and hp are the lowest in her tier. 

 

Btw, for y'all out there who say the name and care, its going to sound more like "Huang Huh" than the english word "he". (In Chinese, that romanization is for the small e sound. like "the".) 

 

They gave her a torp booster reload, but it would be interesting if they did that with DWTs. Heavy hitting DWTs meant for maiming larger ships. Then, increased her reload or gave her a very high accuracy and good shell time for attacking destroyers. 

She'd still keep her garbage amount of guns, non-existent armor, lowest HP pool in the tier, but trade that for situational firepower. With some choice on different consumables. 

ex.

Smoke + hydro, choose between: DF or torp booster

Oh, I remember now... you're talking about the Huang Meh, the cruiser that doesn't do anything particularly well except shoot down planes that may or may not attack it from time to time. What a great boat... I totally wouldn't want to sail a Cleveland over that, nope!

 

Well, the ship is somewhat stealthy, but it can't really hunt DDs because of the poor travel times and lousy reload. They really need to do something with that thing... when you've got half the firepower of the Cleveland as you said, and have nothing to show for it part from some lousy torpedoes, somethings missing. They should probably decrease the reload on the guns at the very least if they're going to make every other aspect of the ship so weak. :Smile_great:

The Huang Heh is Huang Meh.

 

Last I heard WG added Perth's smoke to it.  Even with it, she is far worse than Perth is as she is a weaker ship to begin with.

how they even intend to release such a ship after the first delay is questionable.

Cleveland won't be a benchmark for T6 much longer. As for the testing, dunno. She's still in it, so we'll have to wait and see.

Besides with her buffed DF she's got better AAA than cleveland now.

At least the ship will give people another excuse to use that smoke generator module that Perth players always slap on.

Still garbage it seems. Def AA or Perth smoke only with less synergy.
