From my experience IJN cruisers are really fragile Citadels and rudder/engine getting knocked out is a normal occurrence.

"ATAGO" have weak rudder, even Destroyer HE will put it out of commission

In my experience, Myoko, Mogami, and even Aoba have the same paper rudder and engine, which may even be taken out by HE shells which just happened to drop on the stern of the ships.

 

Yes, Takao has the same gene :P I used DCP more often on rudder and engine of Takao than other cruisers like Hipper or Pensacola (which the later most of the time got deleted instantly anyway)

use rudder upgrade to deduce chance of rudder getting knock out. takao is same ship as atago, and atago suffer this way back from her first release.

Rudder upgrades save lives.

 

Alternatively, you can pick Last Stand.

Atago has a decent 29s 180d rotation time, after all.

 

Other CAs play around 25s 180d rotation.

you get a free half premium and you complain about it? Use the rudder mod and last stand. Preventive maintenance too if you really hate losing rudder

just go into concealment if your rudder is broken and dont make any sharp turns unless you have to when getting ahot at

Are you experiencing your Takao rudder or engine being shoot out consistently ? Is it me or the boat is fragile ?  Nearly every game got shot out .

 

Yes, same goes for all the IJN CAs. Every hit you take on the rear is going to disable the rudder. I was thinking about getting LS for IJN CA captains, but EM is more important.
