After playing them a while it is clear that they do not.

Negative some of them used to have a 65 bounce angle but were nerfed after testing, make of that what you will.

Completely normal angles. 

The 234mm/9.2in armed ships did spend some of their test period with slightly improved angles, but lost it before release.

I wish... I had hoped for a RN CA with no HE and the improved pen angles/shortened fuse. RN CLs are almost what I'd call the perfect ships for me... save that I hate CL guns.

I sold my Hawkins. There's just nothing special about it, and I've heard there's not much special about all of them, including the Goliath. They all seem to be quite meh. The AP angles not being anything special makes me feel even better for selling it.

You're looking for Italian CAs.

Not really. Their SAP can't cit, and their AP doesn't have really good bounce angles. Not only that, but their smoke isn't any good for offensive use. 

Now, if you gave their AP all the good parts of SAP... :cap_haloween:

Like IJN, FR, and German CAs, you should be slinging HE most the time.

IDK, the 9.2" guns hit like a truck on semi-broadside BB's.
