Tier IV - IJN Oyodo

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japanese_cruiser_%C5%8Cyodo

 

Has 6x155mm guns on two triple-gun turrets, no torpedoes and powerful AA. Oyodo can be made as a AA focused Cruiser in-game with the AA consumable and a catapult fighter. those seal clubbing tier 4 and 5 CV's are gonna avoid you specially with a top speed of 34kn.

 

She can have an optional upgrade of 4x203mm on two twin-gun turrets.

 

here's some images of IJN Oyodo

tier 4, are you kidding me? this ship can be a tier V without problem. her lack of torpedo is no problem with her fast firing 155mm shell in her front. as long as the turret speed is not slow as mogami.

Since premium ships have their own MM, they can give Oyodo a +2/-0 MM which means she will only encounter tier IV to VI ships

Tier V minimal, last time WG did a "Tier IV AA focused ship" we got the Yuubari and well...her AA is no where near escort cruiser levels and even then her self protection AA isn't that great even with Defensive fire. 

 

Now, while there are CV sealclubbers a IV and V, a large number of those CV players will be new players who have no idea what they are doing and last thing they need is something that evaporates their planes outside of enemy fighters.

Oh-yodo (Sorry not sorry)

is good thou

And

Her spotter consumable will be an A13A1 and an A6M2-N for the fighter consumable

EDIT: She will be the first tier V with AA Defense Firing if she's planned on release

Tier 5 with +/-1 MM.

 

this. Oyodo can't handle tier 7 games but probably fire with 4,5 and 6 tier.

she can be a good AA cover for IJN at tier 5 when tier 4 melon can't handle tier 5 and 6 cv.

My assessment was... given the 5-6 shells per minute RoF & firepower of the 2 x 3 15.5 cm/60 3rd Year Type, it will not catch up with the Cleveland anyways. At least it's same as the Aoba with additional AA power.

Oyodo should be Tier 6 because

- God tier AA: she possessed 100 mm Type 89 which you only found on Akizuki, Taiho, Hakuryu, Ibuki and Zao

- Good main guns: Mogami gun if turret traverse isn't abysmal, that is excellent gun to have. She will be excellent long range sniper like IJN ships should be

- Catapult fighter: she could be very good platform (she intended to be scout cruiser with superb floatplane but her floatplane suck, instead she may get spotting plan like Budnyony)

- She has armor level of Aoba. So she should be able to hold herself well at tier

Yes she doesn't have torpedo armament but if she does, her torpedo arc will be uncomfortable to use. So I'll ignore it
