I really enjoy playing both Huang He and Perth. They are virtually identical in play style and nearly identical in capability. I especially like taking them both out in Operation Aegis loaded up with XP, Free XP, and Captain XP flags. I almost always get stellar results with either. Just finished the scenario with both following the same game plan.

  1. Move full speed behind the Mahan keeping guns to starboard and load AP.
  2. When the Mahan pops smoke reduce speed to zero and turn hard to port remaining in the smoke cloud (it is all about remaining concealed).
  3. Abuse the CA with AP, then switch to HE for the DD and BB. Watch out for DD torps!
  4. When that smoke is running out beginning moving northwest at 1/4 speed. Guns again to starboard with AP loaded.
  5. Pop your own smoke and enjoy farming citadels from the CA coming from the north west. Hopefully none of the Ishizuchi stay west of the island.
  6. When the smoke runs out (or all the ships are gone!), turn north and engage the western escorts with AP. Stay outside of torp range and they will focus on the friendlies south of them.
  7. Once the western escorts are sunk, turn due east south of the second island from the border and load up HE.
  8. Slow to 1/4 speed as you leave the cover of the island or the planes spot you.
  9. Pop smoke again and start lighting up the CV. (This is where the lack of a spotter hurts the Huang He most).
  10. Continue east and pick at the flanks of the bots.

When the team is competent  this works out well.

The (obviously) noticeable difference between the Huang He and Perth is the DPM. If only Huang he had that fourth turret...

Spoiler

Huang He isn't really too shabby in this scenario - or even in Randoms.

Perth does a bit better.

Crazy great fun - both of the ships!

Really want ‘TOG: Centurian,’ Thor strikes to deal with the dirty rotten scoundrel bots using DF....

If Aegis is back; that means no more pointless T6, T8 Ops for a while, and time to jump back in them again!

Aegis is back until Wednesday. Have fun! I sure do.

Can I summon the master, @Huanghe? Both ships shine in the scenarios, and especially with teams that know how to spot.

(Sorry for late response, been on vacation.) I would even say that the Huanghe is better than the Perth for scenarios because it has amazing AA and the Perth's AA is almost non existent. For missions that dont have aircraft the perth has more firepower but if there are any planes the Huang can tear them up.

I actually think Little White Mouse underated this ship, it is a Mehbote, like Perth and needs to use Islands or smoke for cover.

Camp objectives, focus DD, AP into broadside CL/CA, set BB on fire and torp them when they rush the smoke :P

I propose a hull b that emphasizes on the torpedo armament and the torpedo reload booster given to the  Arethusa class which this ship was a member of simply take off those silly tier 9 secondary guns and plop in the 4 additional torpedo tubes to the ship https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arethusa-class_cruiser_(1934) .

The torpedoes are awful & no one in their right mind would give up hydro just to fire off a handful more of those things a little faster...
