This is a scout cruiser design made by the usn before the Omaha and Lexington class were finalized. To follow usn naming conventions I'll give this ship the name Guerriere.

 The Guerriere is equipped with the same guns as the Colorado class however it uses the MK3 shell instead.

Cost 18.14$

Summary:

The Guerriere is a ship of extremes. On one hand it has Colorado guns, a top speed of 35knots, 16km range, and an enormous HP pool which all give it a sizable advantage over the other tier 4 ships. On the other hand it has good belt armor for a cruiser, but for a BB it's lacking at only 8in's, this isn't even mentioning the lackluster armor it has. To add on to this it's hull is similar to that of the Omaha class making it very vulnerable to citadel hits, which isn't ideal for BB's. Ultimately it's a ship that when it hits it's opponents it'll (probably over pen) hit like a truck, but it can't absorb damage for very long to make use of it's guns if it is played at close range.

Yes but considering the fact that it moves a 35knots and what I've been able to pull off in the much slower Ishizuchi, I don't see how it'll be that hard to dodge planes. To add on to this a majority of t4 CV aren't that good at aiming at fast battleships from what I've seen.
