Decrease? Yes

Big? That's relative. I'm not complaining.

It has more punch. I try to use IFHE if possible in all 152mm equipped ships

If you use the fire flags which are 0.5% each for 155mm and lower calibers you lose 1% of fire chance. You trade firestarting capabilities for raw damage however. If you have another 10 point captain who doesn't have IFHE, set up a training room and check the shatters with and without IFHE on battleships.

Take ifhe first. With DE you have a 1% reduction in fire starting. Some games it seems like we are fighting in a monsoon and others I’m firing at wooden ships. IFHE allows more damage instead of relying on fires to damage bbs. I never had a high caliber or witherer until the bud. Bb hate me. Every salvo is 2-4K damage plus a fire chance. I routinely have 100k damage games. Getting IFHE 1st made grinding to 14 points more fun and easier

1.) Priority Target
2.) Adrenaline Rush
3.) Demo Expert
4.) IFHE
5.) Concealment Expert
6.) Expert Marksman
7.) ?????
8.) Profit!

Budyonny's concealment is pretty decent as is, and most of the time you're going to be shooting from long range anyway, so it's a non-issue to begin with. Take IFHE first. It is a decrease in fire chance but not really noticeable, while the raw damage increase from HE penetrations you get even against tier 8 opponents is VERY noticeable.

You can argue either way to adopt IFHE before CE, but you want both eventually.  IFHE+DE helps in making damage consistent, but the CE helps you to move around more stealthily and disengage more easily.  Otherwise OP, I see no fault in your build choice.

I really like my Buddy.  I went with Preventative Maintenance, Adrenalin Rush, Vigilance and IFHE on my 10 point captain.
