York skills reset

I`ve been wanting to respect my 14 point York captain for a while now but couldn`t decide on how. I`ve got IHFE for the 14th point and don`t know if to keep it or not. Some people say the York gains a small benefit from it, some say not.  Would like some suggestions for a respect while it`s free respect time.

Thanks.

IFHE for the 210mm guns on the Yorck is pretty much worthless.

First off, the German CAs benefit from a 1/4 HE penetration (i.e. essentially built-in IFHE) already. So the 210mm HE does 52mm of penetration. That's enough to penetrate anything you care about.  Adding IFHE would increase that to 68mm of penetration.  I can't think of anything that you could not do with 52mm that you could do with 68mm. You'll never be able to punch through belt armor with HE on anything, and that's about the only thing thicker than 52mm.

 

So, no, DON'T get IFHE on a Yorck.  In fact, on ANY 200mm and larger gun on ANY ship, IFHE is a waste of 4 points - use it for something else.

 

I run PT-AR-DE-CE as my base 10-point Yorck captain, and then do either:

1. With Main Battery Mod 2 installed, I run ATF, then BoS, then LS

2. With AA Guns Mod 2 installed, I run EM, then BoS, then Vig, then PM
