Does the Kleber take full AP pens from BBs?

Couldn't find the answer with a quick search. I know the Khab and Hara do, but the other tier X DDs do that. 

 

Which club in the Kleber in?

Kleber does not. She has paper armor; she's purely a speed tank. So if a BB can even hit her, minimal damage, and she probably has the lowest incoming fire hit % of any ship I've played. Most players in randoms can only hit her consistently at short range if then; one can get away with a lot of meme-worthy ridiculousness in randoms that would never fly in competitive but even in competitive she's a better flanking HE spammer than Khab. 

I'm just waiting for the nerfbat to hit and enjoying her until then.

"IF" I remember correctly only the Harugumo and Khabarovsk take full penetration damage from large caliber BB AP ( 283mm +) , the rest of the DDs are not long or have armor thick enough arm those shells.

The only penetration ribbons one may get for shooting other DDs with BB AP is possibly for damage to modules.

Now it gets interesting with the Stalingrad and its AP that can over-match 21mm but has 34mm fuse thresholds instead of 51mm as on the other 305mm guns.
So unless you consider a Stalingrad a BB then the answer is: NO.

Stalingrad doesn't full pen DDs except Harugumo and Khaba, neither do any of the other 305 mm cruisers.
