Compare the stats and capabilities of the Chung Mu and the USS Black,

Remember the Black? The Gift DD for those that ranked out five seasons in a row? Remember how everyone lost their minds because it had smoke AND radar (stealth Belfast, anyone?)

They nerfed it, of course, making the captain choose between smoke and radar. Reduced the radar range and duration to the current levels as the CM. We know how well smoke is werkin' now, right? So, not really a nerf, as it turned out.   So, the same challenge of any DD trying to use smoke in the current radar-heavy environment.

Enter the Chung Mu.

A better Fletcher hull than Fletcher or Black, with better conceal than either, capable of 81 second reload on Fletcher torps (look at Black's torp stats and try not to giggle. Hit hard, yes...hit something with 43 knot torps...um...ok?). Torps are DWT's so far harder to detect. So, USS Black CAN radar from smoke. Given the current meta, I am not sure sitting in smoke is advised, so I'm dubious about the value of this. I think it may have been higher when it first came out, but with the proliferation of CA radars now, is it more than a situational ability?

Add the radar mod, and you've got a better bote than the  rival to the USS Black. All just because you went up the "boring" PADD line. Black's got a 64% WR being played by people that played well enough to rank out 5 seasons in a row. CM has the next best WR for a DD at T9, at 55%, and averages only about 1K less damage than the Black, being played by the rest of us.

Get one, play it with radar, use your concealment, max it out, wreck face. My best XP, frag and damage bote. The attached is typical CM nonsense. Last five minutes or so is worth watching, maybe. 

Gude hunting.

Another, with 2X DD kills with radar and 140K total damage, lots of torps

Correct me if I am wrong, but I thought the Black still had smoke and radar, just they nerfed the radar.

Interesting. How recent is this? The wiki indicates it’s either/or. Is this yours?

Ok, can’t get any more factual than that. Thank you!
