Make Wichita the Prinz Eugen to Baltimore’s Hipper.   Another Tier 8 cruiser with a heal wold be a welcome addition.

I would rather have that rather than what is shown so far. 

Smaller citadel than Baltimore, identical gun values,  but the worst is the detection. She can hit a max of 8.7km, and with the 8.5km radar can practically radar as she is spotted.

Or WG could give Wichita her 160mm belt and 27mm plating.

You mean like Boise?    What would the difference be then other than the name?

You mean other than the fact that Wichita is a 203mm armed tier VIII with better concealment, speed, health, firing range, maneuverability, and has a 3x3 turret set up? Nothing I guess.

It would be worth purchasing if they did.  I'm not sure I will buy another radar cruiser.

I don't need another radar cruiser, I do, however, would like a USN heavy cruiser prem with some endurance.

I don't know where this concern about (near) stealth radar is coming from, but consider the following:

  1. Minotaur, Worcester, Seattle, Chapayev, Yueyang, Chung Mu, Hsienyang, and Black already have the ability to stealth radar.
  2. Edinburgh, Cleveland, and T8 New Orleans effectively know to automatically radar the moment they are spotted.
  3. Atlanta, Belfast, Des Moines, Baltimore, T9 Baltimore, and Neptune can close the small gap between their concealment and radar quickly to make it effectively auto radar.
  4. Post-nerf Worcester and Seattle will function like ships in #2.

This concept isn't anything new and it hasn't been a problem.

I agree, but I was specifically referring to people claiming the sky is falling because Wichita can effectively stealth radar.

Especially since Wichita is a CA and can't get as many shots in on a DD as a CL can. It can manage 2 maybe 3 shots assuming the turrets don't have to traverse.

I would as long as it is different somehow. The problem is that isn't particularly different than Baltimore, which I already have.
