That right there is the rare Anchorage of the cruiser genus. She’s known to appear from time to time in those waters. Approach with caution.:cap_look:

Oooooh~ noice, Admiral. Good catch. :Smile_great:

Anchorage is... an USN cruiser? Is she the one with torpedoes at high tier, when other high tier USN cruisers have none? :Smile_hiding:

From the dev blog:

Quote

Anchorage is a universal heavy cruiser capable of fighting at close- and mid-ranges. The ships has a decent main caliber guns. "Hydroacoustic Search" consumable and torpedo armament allows Anchorage to feel comfortable in close-range combat, and a "Smoke generator" consumable, which is uncharacteristical for American heavy cruisers, will let her avoid enemy's focued fire or take a break in battle.

Color me interested.

Not quite.  She's a CA, so she doesn't have the Smolensk ROF.  The smoke gun bloom will also be much larger because they're 8" guns (7.98km) and not DD / CL guns that have shorter gun bloom ranges.

 

With bots constantly rushing and the large gun bloom range in smoke, Anchorage won't be as useful in Co-op.  But in Randoms... As a Cruiser Main who spent a lot of time in USN CAs, this is a dream combination.  If I were to take her to Randoms it'd be like this.  For Co-op, I'd drop the Spotting Aircraft and slot Hydro.

 

Also an interesting quirk with Anchorage is unlike most other USN Cruisers, her AA is going to be pretty bad.  She has very little 127mm dual purpose gun turrets, practically no 40mm Bofors, and relies on those early war trash 28mm Chicago Pianos.

 

For Tier VIII she has:

203mm 3x4 main battery.

Fletcher Torps.

Smoke.

 

For Randoms, she's going to be intermediate engagement range, setup smoke if needed.  Because of the gun bloom in smoke, she should not be smoking up real close like Edinburgh, Smolensk, Belfast, Minotaur do.

Pretty.  A new shiny.

Smoke is for escapability?  Won't gun bloom preclude doing any decent work in smoke?

Any word on her armor scheme?

Also.....

In terms of how effective its smoke will be, think more like the Italian cruisers -- you have to be WAY back for your smoke to be effective concealment while using your main guns.
