I have both ships and run Concealment module and CE skill on both. The base ship detection range for Iowa is 12.3; for Henri is 13 km.

Well last time I checked Iowa cant spam torps, engine boost, MB reload, and have one of the highest fire chances of tier 10 cruisers

I was reading through some older posts and it used to be 12.7 km in the config I'm in now, so I think it got nerfed in detection, but don't recall the announcement.

But yes, it has features.

The thing about that is the Henri is going to be setting fires and kiting beyond 13km. It'll be shooting at 16....17k+ anyways so it's a moot point.

Then you stop shooting and speed boost into a new position and reload booster a bunch of AP into some guy to farm citadels. Again...becomes a moot point.

So either nerf it offensively or leave the detection larger than Iowa. Just making sure I was reading the detection right, just got the ship.

Umm... I don't understand the problem here. There is no need to do anything to the ship at all either way.

Only two games so far, so no real playstyle yet. A 100K damage game and a 28K one (very expensive that one). I did note that the detection range for Iowa increased to 12.7 km right after I posted this, interesting. Right now I only play it when in premium time. I did take advantage of the module dismounts during captain respecs and sent everything module wise over to it from the St Louis, which is a ship I did not like at all.

For the captain respec, I took BFT and AFT and CE, and dropped the IFHE (off the St Louis). The AP on the Henri is good enough to be your go to shell in most battles I find (2 games).

I see this is my Henri's setup I play her like a speed tanking kiter to long range harasser I use my speed to dictate the range of engagement like pushing in quick help help friendly DDs contest caps with your reload booster then pull back safely and annoy enemy BBs that they won't push into your HE fiery spam. its speed advantage some how lets me control the areas of maps that no one usually thinks of.

But... IFHE allows you to pen 50mm deck armor. 100K+ games are a cake walk when you can pretty much pen whatever you want with HE and light it on fire. Good AP is a bonus.
