Maximum dispersion - 132 m. HE initial velocity - 823 m/s. AP initial velocity - 853 m/s. Sigma value – 2.05.

Maximum speed - 32.5 kt. Turning circle radius - 730 m. Rudder shift time – 10.2 s. Surface detectability – 12.6 km. Air detectability – 9.1 km. Detectability after firing main guns in smoke – 7.2 km.

The high sigma makes me wonder if she's losing the AP ShS shells. And are those the old AP shell stats too? They seem to have a higher velocity.

And can we have the text in a color other than white please?

Those I believe are the stock Baltimore guns/NO upgraded guns in game currently.

I wonder what their reasoning is where Martel can have so much better DPM.  15 second reload is one of the major issues that NO had in the first place.

Sorry, I just hit copy/paste from facebook, and I'm using the dark theme.  Will edit.

I believe all cruisers have 2.05 sigma, with very easy to spot exceptions.

All standard light and heavy cruisers have a 2.05 sigma. This is totally normal. Also, those stats are stock. Upgraded Balti will likely have a 12 or 13 second reload with the superheavy shells.

I'm certain T10 cruisers get 2.05. I'm not sure on T9, but otherwise I think all other cruisers get 2.0.

This could be a small buff, or a copy-paste error.

 

Once again in general the stock stats are less than interesting, her ROF could go to current Baltimore, or to a middling point or... useless stock stats.

Looked it up and you appear to be right. All tier 9 and 10 cruisers are at 2.05, whereas tier 8 and below are at 2.0. Maybe they're making an exception for Baltimore? Although yes, possibly a typo.

Up till recently, only T10 cruisers had 2.05 cruisers. Apparently that has changed.

If the 2.05 is just a copy/paste error, then here's to hoping she still retains the AP ShS in some form on her upgraded gun set, or with a minor reduction in normalization (rather than removed outright).

2.05 is tier X only usually, although Baltimore is an exception, she as of now has 2.05 sigma.

As with the other downtiers, this is just stock Baltimore (hence why she has the 118kg shells instead of SHS), minus some HP.

the stat is unupgraded.  if it get to keep the upgrade  to 10sec reload,   this will be a keeper.   its 27mm plating is good enough to tank 15"    and   should be good upgrade.

Too bad that's just a placeholder ship.  I hope for a premium Pittsburgh some day.

That reload.  Yes, I realize it used to be that bad at T9. I also realize that when it was or that it was the worst ship in the game tier for tier. All but 11 of my Baltimore games were in that thing.

CA need to have dpm, they sure as hell don't have alpha and the Baltimore has the same hang time problems that the Des Moines has.  With a 10-11 second reload the Baltimore would be good, with 15 I predict it will be right back to being terrible.

 

Assuming they don't mess with the armor and citadel it will be quite tanky for a cruiser when top tier (T8 top tier, hah), but it hardly matters if it doesn't have any dpm. It will be the opposite of Des Moines, a terrible dpm ship with above average staying power.

The change in sigma to 2.05 was done for the t9 and t10 cruisers to compensate for the buff the concealment mod got last year I want to say.

Not even NO had 10-11 Second reload at tier VIII, and that was with the weaker 118 kg AP. That kind of RoF would be ridiculous compared to to her cruisers. Anything less than 12 seconds would be insane, considering the AA, armor, and displacement advantage Baltimore has as a tier VIII. Let's not add any more to the powercreep.

USN does need a tier 8 Cruiser premium.

Yikes, that reload time.  IJN cruisers are going to have some company.  

It's stock.  The current IX Baltimore upgrades to have 10 second base reload time and SHS AP shells.  However, I expect VIII Baltimore / Pittsburgh to lose access to the Tier IX Upgrade Slot that enables items like MBM3, AAGM3, etc. being installed.  IX Baltimore with MBM3 lets her fire at 8.8 seconds.  The Tier VIII downgrade version will lose access to that.

it will also lose heal, but that is expected.    still 10 sec reload with tanky nose would be decent t8 cruiser.

This is my whole problem with USN CL.  They're been so power creeped by the Brits, French, German, and Ruskie rates of fire.
