What's the state of Khaba for devs? Is it in line for buff? Is there reason to play Khaba nowadays? (since french DD is superior version of khaba in every way possible) 

It's only good as DD hunter, and that is if you don't die first to 10-12km radar or planes spotting you. French DD is even faster and doesn't have same armor plating as Khaba so it has higher chance of survival. Halland is slower but has excellent AA and great torps with good range (and armor is not same as khaba, too).

At least make AP penetration formula against Khaba works same way as other DDs? (Harugumo, which was also excluded from AP Pen, at least have smoke to hide).

Today?

Murdering battleships and other things in Co-op.

Played five Random games about a month ago. Did pretty poorly. 40% wr, 57k total damage, but survived all five games.

i feel like CVs demolished that ship.

what was once a ship that many players hated and loved it,very few players keep playing it because of its lack of smoke,armor that increase damage taken by rockets and the introduction of french dds made khaba somehow  obsolete.

Unfortunately, or fortunately, the entire Russian gunboat DD line was powercrept by the French DD line. Also the Khaba shares the same problem as the Haragumo, it's literally not worth the upgrade to tier 10, the tier 9 is better in most regards AND doesn't suffer more damage from regular AP pens. It's why it's rare to see either in a high tier game but you see plenty of Kita's.

Why would you get w/in radar range of a radar ship when you can laser snipe them from outside their radar range & dodge all their incoming shells w/the speed it has?

CVs are definitely a problem for it...but radar...LOL

Why do people blame CVs for everything?  Khab isn't seen anymore because it was nerfed too much and then they came out with the Kleber which is everything Khab used to be and more.  It has nothing to do with CVs.

You can play the Kleber sub-optimally by sitting at range and spamming, yet outperform a Khaba.  The entire Russian DD line on both sides is effectively just Frenchies but worse.

Its been nerfed so hard and often that I think that Tashkent is straight up better, and definitely better at tier.

There was a time when the team that had the Khaba was the team that won, how times have changed.

I have tried playing my Khaba... its no use. The Groz Khaba's better than the Khaba. Its more agile, fires further, and doesn't eat full pens. WG nerfed the crapout of it back in the day BC people screamed it was OP. So what does WG do? Release French DDs which are faster, and shoot further, and now Italian.   The khaba is tied for the worst DD with the Z52 IMO. It needs its range buffed.
