Quick question, many of the RN cruisers have catapults, easily seen on the ships. Wondering if fitting them with a spotter plane might help offset some of the limitations of the Light Cruiser line (AP only, fragility, limited smokescreen, etc.)

 

Or would a spotter plus smokescreen plus enhanced range be OP?

Nah, I think the Brits are pretty balanced, for now at least. I haven't played the higher tiers RN CLs, but playing against them I can most certainly say you won't be able to hit anything (maybe battleships) reliably beyond 14km with the long travel time of the shells, much like the Cleveland at it's maximum range.

the Disadvantage is the slow velocity of shells starting Tier V-X

kinda bit disappointing but hey, you can switch Spotter -> Catapult Fighter

well you can dump smoke for spotter plane. no need smoke, if you fire from long range - you will stealh fire anyway

 

even if you can hit reliably at 17km, its prob all bounce and non pen
