Cool.  Will make a good captain trainer for whenever the rest of the British heavy cruiser sub-branch drops.

Not with those gun layouts, although her near-sister Enterprise got a Leander-type turret forward in place of her two singles.

If the AP shells are short-fuze, they are going to make low-tier destroyers' lives an absolute misery. No overpens.

I don't see anyone taking the catapult fighter, unless they're in a two-Exeter division with a smoke buddy.

OH FUDGE YES!

And she's at the same Tier as Furutaka! Noice!

and she's superior to the Furrytaco except for torpedo ranges, having one more tube per launcher and a +2 knot top speed.

Furry don't have repair party and smoke, her guns are lower velocity and reload slower.

Furutakas armor layout is about 10 million times more tanky, and she gets Zao dispersion.

Furrytaco, tanky? :cap_wander:

Yes, actually. Take a gander at the armor scheme and see what thresholds its external plating crosses when compared to other tier V's (and even most tier VI's).

Heavy cruiser with smoke as well.  That's a first for this game.  6.1km firing penalty firing from smoke will make this a bit of a challenging ship for some.

Let's just hope the tech tree sub-branch isn't as gimmicky as the rest of the British tech tree lines.

So Furutaka finally gets powercreeped.

 

8 inch guns + smoke, what a winning combination.

Furutaka got power-hammered the day the US cruiser split happened and Tier 6 top-tier games had a US heavy cruiser to face.

What this means is that she can't be the bully cruiser in a T5 top tier match any more.

Furutaka has a much superior armor layout.

Apart from the whole 'Zao dispersion for no reason' and 'can out-tank almost every other cruiser in its entire MM bracket', sure. Exeter has no tanking ability whatsoever, and anything within 6 km of her smoke is going to light her up. In terms of survivablity this is just an Emerald that has 8" guns, which is far from a ringing endorsement.
