From the 7.7 patch notes:

127 mm AP/SC Mk38 shells

  • The fuse running time for the 127 mm AP/SC Mk38 shells used by U.S. and Pan-Asian ships was reduced from 0.03 to 0.01.

This change will make it more efficient to deal "alpha" damage to destroyers and cruisers. It will affect all U.S. researchable and Premium destroyers of Tier V and above, cruisers Atlanta and Flint, and Tier VIII-X Pan-Asian destroyers.

How will this change help Atlanta & Flint?  Gud, bad, meh?  Will they still be HE spammers regardless?

Looks like more AP pens on superstructure armor. Fire HE unless the ship is broadside and close (cruiser/battleship). Then AP pen the superstructure.

St louis pretty much hit it on the head. What it does mean though is that the cruisers(for the moment) should get less shatters! which will equal more damage in the long term.:fish_book:

so now Atlanta has RNCL fuse timers?

is WG aware that it has more HE DPM than Des Moines and more AP DPM than Hindenburg w/o MBM3?

and if you put BFT on it, it will have more AP DPM than MBM3 Hindy

Less overpens. The penetration isn't changing. Just the time between AP fuse arming and shell going pop.

Sure it is. More damage with AP, more normalpens for 33% damage instead of overpens for 10% damage on destroyers or the superstructure of cruisers.
