Because I had a battle in it on-stream this afternoon in which I scored multiple 10,000 HP damage broadsides. I was very pleasantly surprised. It made me wonder if they've done something to the shells and haven't told us, or whether I was just getting some really freakishly good salvoes.

I thought all they did was improve the reload on the main guns, from 40 seconds to 38 seconds (hey it's something).

If they did improve penetration that would be a good thing as it's too low for a tier 5, it's even worse than most of the tier 4s. It doesn't have to be Kongo/New York/Texas levels of penetration but a little better would be nice.

Datamines / live data looks like the shells are unchanged.  I mean 10 shells is 10 shells if they land, pen damage is pen damage right? :P.  only takes 3 pens at 10k alpha for 10k damage!

What were you shooting at? I was able to pull off similar salvos right out of the gate against tier IV and V BBs who thought that flat broadside was a good defense.

No, I had my Halsey in her, hoping for some secondary glory. He specifically does NOT have deadeye, and some of the shots were well inside my base spotting range.

Good to know she is doing well after the update. PQ did a video on her a week ago, and its had me interested ever since. Did you get some secondary glory?

Mid Tier Cruisers, particularly Tier VI and below, are amazingly squishy.  Very easy to smash to pieces.

 

Omaha-class, Emerald are some of the squishiest Cruisers in the game, and they're Tier V.

Kirov, Kotovsky are Tier V RU Cruisers, and their belt armor is so bad that 203mm SAP can Overmatch their sides and Citadel them.  It's funny because 203mm SAP cannot do that against Emerald and Omaha because their belt armor is too thick to do that!  So much for "Russian Bias."

Hawkins is another Tier V Cruiser and is a Dev Strike waiting to get farmed.

Etc.

Even Furutaka, as good as she is, if she's caught on the sides is going to get insta-rekt.

Tier VI Molotov has powerful guns for her tier, but she gets deleted easily.

Leander over in Tier VI is a good CL, but if caught gets smashed pretty harshly.

 

As a Tier V Battleship, Oklahoma gets an uncommon opportunity to beat up on Tier IV, and the Cruisers there are even worse in terms of protection.
