It's gonna be a very different experience from Kuma. And if you are like me who loved Kuma, you are gonna hate Furutaka... initially that is. Stock FuryTaco is one of the worst ships. Slow traverse, small firing radius, sluggish turn and not to mention give a lot of broadside to align all 6 guns. Not really a wise thing to do against tier 7 enemies at 10 to 12km range. But if you can tolerate all that, get her to the last hull ASAP. Then she starts getting better mostly because the gun setup goes from single to double canons. And that helps A LOT because her 203 guns can hurt at close range. I have farmed a lot of citadels with her deleting cruisers that wanted to knife fight with me. Eventually fully upgraded, she becomes KUMA again, though still not that fun. Consider it as a stepping stone for the next tiers and learn how to play the IJN lines on her. Sadly, if other players are to be believed, the Japanese cruisers are a copy paste from tier 5 to tier 8. Sadly I am still on my Furutaka, so I wouldn't know past it.

Learn to angle. Showing your side is death. Forget rear guns unless totally safe to use them. Burn everything with your 203's

I'm no kuma fan but I have citadeled furutaka before  and with kuma huge citadel experience should be fine, assuming there's a German bb to lead

I can write you a guide for the Furutaka if you want

Yes please!!! Thanks

Furutaka is a citadel hunter with very powerful AP salvo. Specialized in anti cruisers role. Look for broadside target and bam them for cits are fun

Furutaka are good againts other CA, i am somewhat feared it in emile... but the overpen save my day, so lucky it didnt hit citadel.

Top Tier(Fully upgraded) Furutaka is just amazing., I'd advice you to get DE on the ship., and fast grind out of the stock because stock is just........, lets say,:unsure: Garbage(because I don't wanna get banned)...

Already researched Aoba, but prefer to stay with Furutaka a little while longer. One of the best credit making machine I have. Believe it or not, I regularly beat a T7 Myoko in the Furutaka in one on one battle.

I don't regret getting the Aoba, but did like the Furutak once it got remodelled and the B hill had the forward facing guns.   With a collection of ARP Myoko/atago clones and no real desire to have a Zao, the line has stopped dead for me atm.

Just took the furry taco out for a spin and it's a fun ship, 200mm HE is of good quality, although it's manoeuvrebility isn't the best.

Hydro was useful in spotting dd in smoke and killing him
