Well

The reason for that thread is the fact that they pioritized the Red Navy (full of blueprint ship) rather than more "Available" Royal Navy

Wow, all light cruisers... this is going to be fun. :trollface:

 

Though I wonder if the high tier ones will have insane RoF? Because I honestly don't think 6 inch guns can be competitive enough in T9/10...

If the t10 Minotaur is actually the 1943 one, we're looking at Atlanta reload speeds at something like twice the range.

Anyway, wikipedia delving.

 

Tier 1: Black Swan
Tier 2: Weymouth
Tier 3: Caledon
Tier 4: Danae
Tier 5: Emerald
Tier 6: Leander
Tier 7: Fiji
Tier 8: Edinburgh
Tier 9: Neptune (Possible paper - 1945 cruiser)
Tier 10: Minotaur (Possible paper? Not sure if they're going to put this at tier X)

 

Note that putting Edinburgh at T8 sets us up perfectly for a HMS Belfast premium.

Those thing have  lighter armor than cleaveland. same armanent in Cleaveland

its as slow as cleaveland too

 

if it have old Cleaveland trajectory, old turn rate and Higher rate of firee. can a cleaveland fit in T10 battle ?

So we get one port slot for the new nation introduced right?

 

Yes, we'll likely get a port slot with the Black Swan.

Mikhail Kutusov and Chapayev have the same 152mm guns at tier 8 and they do pretty respectably.

Exactly !

 

 

Possible Paper Ship C-41 Minotaur class :

- Twin 6inch Gun in Dual Turret in 5 mounting (there is triple variant, but it seems double is more likely)

-Twin 40mm Bofors in 8 mount

- 4, 533mm Triple tube Torpedo launcher. possible carrying Mark IX Torpedoes (around 12km range)

possible dispacement is around 16.000 ton

The Hype is real and considering these all seem to be light Cruisers we may end up getting a second class of RN Heavy Cruisers.

Yet it's displacement is only 11000 tons, lower than the myoko. It's HP will be around 30000, not even close to compete in T10
