Every cruiser from T4 onwards gets the option to use Hydroacoustic Search.  From T6 onwards you have to choose between it and Defensive AA.  Russian cruisers of T8+ get radar, American cruisers of T8+ get the option to swap a catapult fighter out for it.  Atlanta and Indianapolis are the only exceptions: do bear in mind that since Indianapolis can mount a catapult fighter you will have to swap it out.

 

The Lo Yang (T8 premium Pan-Asian DD) gets Hydro as well.  So do Bismarck, Friedrich Der Grosse, and Grosser Kurfurst, the T8, 9, and 10 German battleships respectively.

Radar:  Atlanta, Indianapolis, any US or RU Cruiser tier 8-10 can mount it

Keep in mind that German hydro is actually very very powerful at 6km. If a German cruiser starts chasing your DD and you pop smoke, you better still be running away.

Want to thank many of the repliers to this question and oh so very quickly I might add. Thanks again.  I checked on the ships I had and see that many ones which were selected I had chosen the AA over the Hydro and didn't give it much thought.  I reselcted some to try out a a 'free mod' and check it out.

 

Now I think that I had mistakenly THOUGHT that it was going to give me some data on the tactical or Mini as to what Hydro had detected but I see no reflection of any data change. Asked some guy during battle shortly after getting killed and he said that the Hydro T command just increases your detection from the enemy.  Is that correct ?. I researched around for this topic but there seems to be scant detail about Hydoacoustic and Radar functions other than short small details.

No. Incorrect.
