Ive noticed that mid tier US cruisers have more turrets in bow of ship so good for attack, whereas mid tier German cruisers have more turrets in the stern so good for running away.

The tactics of the German cruiser was in the initial aggression of the enemy and retreat to their battleships.
Therefore
turrets their  so located. :)

I simply thought harsh North Sea/Atlantic conditions the Germans expected to operate in meant having ships that were too front heavy weren't  the most ideal, who knows :amazed:

American cruisers (and really, American ships in general) kind of need to be aggressive, given how awful their firing trajectories are. This is further accentuated by having the bulk of their firepower in the front.

Tactics and strategy of naval battles in the North Sea and the Pacific Ocean is very different!
Therefore, "Myogi" was never built.
And from this position turrets abandoned Japanese engineers.
As with "Izumo" :)

An even battle would be US cruisers chasing German cruisers.

Yeah but my basic tactics and strategies for all ships involve either being close or being closer to the enemy...

It's a game after all and I'm not trying to obliterate the british naval presence in the north sea.... yet.

Only because there's nothing for you to obliterate...yet. Even the Warspite is rare.

I have to say German cruisers have pretty shit armor compared to the Murican's. That's must be one of the reason.

Paper armour as usual.

Telling Pencil-colas and higher tiers USN Cruiser to be aggressive is a bit misleading. :sceptic:

 

Sure their arc don't suit enagement >15km, but anything under 12km is managable. Desirably 10-15km.

 

Their armor isn't all that better than the gigantic IJN Citadel city in higher tiers. (Or really, any tier, just that under Tier 6 you can make it work via angling).

Another surrender joke?

Also the French ships had all their guns mounted on the rear decks.....

 

Comon, the French have surely made up for their bad record through their Navy? Refusing to surrender at Dakar and Algiers...

Source please?

I believe this is rubbish.

This is incorrect.

Mounting more turrets in front doesn't make a ship front heavy. A lot more contributes to a ships seaworthiness and operational capability in bad weather than just the positioning of the turrets.

Ships that have a AB/X layout can be just as offensively capable in poor weather as ships with A/XY or AB/XY (or in the case of the German ships Anton, Bruno, Caesar and Dora turrets)
