Ship HE DPM AP DPM
Furutaka 79200 112800
Omaha 150832 212536
Konigsberg 122400 280800
Kirov 99900 163836
Emerald N/A 144000
Emile Bertin 91476 137214
Marblehead 158400 223200
Murmansk 131978 185969
Krasny Krym* 112632 148200

*can be increased through BFT

Ship Range
Furutaka 13.88
Omaha 15.2
Konigsberg 16.5
Kirov 16.3
Emerald 13.6
Emile Bretin 14.9
Marblehead 13.88
Murmansk* 14.8
Krasny Krym ** 14.04

*gets spotter plane

** can be increased through AFT

So from this chart, we can see that Konigsberg, Omaha, and Marblehead dominate - for HE Marblehead comes in first  with Omaha at a close second, for AP Konigsberg is first, with Marblehead at a somewhat distant second. However, this is balance by the Marblehead having one of the shortest ranges. Theoretically, the Murmansk out-ranges every other cruiser while using the spotter plane consumable, otherwise the Konigsberg and Kirov out-ranges everything else.

There's theoretical advantage in DPM, then there's what people have actually done.

Tier V Ranked Sprint 2 Stats.

 

Furutaka was the leader of all Tier V Cruisers in Ranked.  203mm guns in Tier V I guess worked out very well for her.  Not spammy guns but powerful 203mm for the tier and high fire chance HE shells.  I guess guys leveraged that enough to win more with her than the other Tier V Cruisers.  She did this despite having according to your chart, the lowest HE & AP DPM and the shortest gun range.  But DPM charts don't tell the whole story.

The DPM "weakness" of Furutaka is also specifically addressed in that video.

The funny part with Furutaka, until these buffs arrived, which came AFTER Tier V Ranked Sprint, she had been unchanged for years.

Worth noting that while Furutaka has the lowest DPM and range, she has the biggest gun among all other cruiser. Furutaka doesn't care about same tier cruiser armor when it comes to AP pen. It also has IJN HE notorious for being nasty against BB. 

 

Also worth noting that Furutaka has the best T5 armor among all other cruiser at this tier.

If I remember right the B hull Omaha has more guns and torps than the C hull which can affect your dpm calc.

Just to add. Yahagi with test stats right now would have 93.6k HE dpm, and 104.4k AP dpm.

Was a big disappointment to go from Duguay-Trouin to Emile Bertin  :/

Emile Bertin got nerfed very hard. She was a little monster when the french line got out, so it was understandable.

So much this. Furutaka's armor is so effective she can sort of park herself in a channel, shooting everything that is within reach, and will not be punished for it. Her 48mm deck is responsible for that, she can't get penetrated through there. And the ship is very sleek looking, so her bow is on the small side.

One thing I discovered recently is that she is very capable in brawling against slow BBs (sort of like Graf Spee do on tier 6), the AP put the hurt each time, the HE hits hard and has good fire chance, and her torp angles are awesome, perfect for disrupting some BBs brawling tactics.

Omaha, Murmansk, Marblehead, and Krasny Krym DPM is misleading, as it is impossible to aim all of their guns on a target since they have casemate guns on both sides of the hull.
