I have the concealment mod on my NO, so the range is 11.2 km. If  I put a 15 point captain on with CE will it go to 9.856 km?

Yes sir.  I have it equipped on mine.

 

Do you play it much? Any hints on gameplay?

It's a support ship for DDs, not for BBs. It sees up to tier 10, and by that tier a BB can often hit you if you are dancing around trying to provide supporting fire for your teams BBs, so it generally works better if you use your stealth to move with your DDs for the early part of the match. Because of your stealth, anything that spots you will be in range of radar (or close to it if you go forward a few seconds more, meaning that your presence in a DD vs DD fight will help your side win (except of course that many DD players will run and hide as soon as they see an enemy's smoke).

 

You generally want to keep islands between you and where the BBs work, but you can go bow-on against other CAs and tank most of their damage. Enemy CAs typically can't match your firepower bow-on, so they need to expose their rear guns, and you can sneak in citadel shots when they do.

 

I have mixed opinions on whether to equip AADF or HAS -- I think I had more luck with HAS. You can stagger your hydro with your radar and be very bullish in hunting down enemy DDs.

 

What I found was that I had very good games when allied DDs stuck near me, shot at the things I was shooting, or helped me spot while I helped them kill. I had bad games when they ran at the first sign of trouble and threw me in the way as a speedbump.
