i like my DM, but salem is another story. I have only had a few games on it, but the gimped radar makes this USN cruiser lose its identity. The improved heal is ok, but i dont think the trade off with radar is worth it. I rather have a baltimore level radar (9.5km range, 30 sec) than the 8.5km 25 sec radar.

It is far stronger against cruisers due to the ability to heal off a LOT of HE damage, moderately better against BBs due to the 33% citadel repair, but significantly worse against Destroyers due to the nerfed radar. It has a somewhat different role and set of strengths. I think it is slightly stronger than the DM overall, but both ships shine in their own situations.

I already have the superior version of the Des Moines-class, DM herself.  Salem to me is a big loss of resources for no gain.

Yeah, the tradeoff for having British healing is your radar (you better just get the Hydro TBH)
Like the one from the above mentioned (cough... not above me) It's pretty much stronger against cruisers and she's quite a damage farmer as well as the Des Moines.

I like the Salem repair and it really helps it's survival abilities  during battles …….

just another 17k ish coal for me to get the Salem, sold the DM to save on getting a premium camo, given Salem comes with one and a reduce servicing cost, ergo is a saving of 5000 gold vs. the DM
