So Which USN Cruisers Now Have Buffed AP?

Pensacola before the split was one of the first USN cruisers to have quite lethal AP (yes, I'm aware that Baltimore is the first one that got the super-heavy shells, but I'm pretty certain that Pensacola is where the better auto-bounce angles began).

Before her, Cleveland's AP was only really good at close range (although her rate of fire helped out) and Omaha's AP was quite lacking.

Now that the line has split, what is the status of the AP shells on the USN cruisers?

Where do the improved auto-bounce-angles AP shells begin? Where do the super-heavy shells begin to appear?

The improved autobounce angles are available for all 203mm USN AP shells, so Pensacola and higher.

SHS shells historically would start on Baltimore and Cleveland.

Super heavy shells don't apply to 152mm guns, no?

You are correct.

Cleveland has normal shells.

in-game they have no special bouncing features. I said that they were there historically :Smile-_tongue:

The following in-game Cruisers have the SHS AP shells:

VIII Baltimore

IX Beefalo

X Des Memes

 

These are the ones with the newer 203mm turrets, rifles compared to what Pensacola, Indianapolis, New Orleans are running.
