As you can see,Atago is almost nothing special compared with Myoko:Slower firing rate,worse rudder and worse AA defense;Same torpedo,almost same HP;Only concealment and turret rotation time is better,and 2 repair party.

So should this ship be strenthened?

No. Her alpha and fire chance along with her ability to disappear and stealth torp make her a very potent ship. Her repair party gives her leeway for mistakes. She might not be a kutuzov but she is a strong T8 cruiser.

no, gods no, front firing torp/gun arcs, heal, speed, good rudder, stealth, high HE alpha and fire chance, what more could you possibly want? she stood heads and shouders over ALL the T8 CAs before the IFHE buff, and you want to actually buff it, are you insane?

But she will get shot when turn broadside

Hmm I have no choice but come out and shoot them back

Atago is a good ship, plus if you employ the correct Captain skills she becomes even better ie CE, IFHE, TAE, Superintendent.

IFHE??

Nooooooooo, she has 203s, that's a horrible idea!

Atago is a Ninja, with conceal build she can have 9.1km spotted range, allowing her to stealth torp, as a CA...

Use this stealth to get to around 10km away from enemy CAs and DDs. Then wait for them to be exposed and POW.

2 decently aimed AP salvos and most CAs are limping, if not dead.

 

You then bug out, throw some torps to give anyone chasing something to think about then rinse, repeat.

No. As far as her tier is concerned, Atago is already very capable when you set her aside with her contemporaries.

Please refer to my previous comment on your suggestion on the Chinese side of the forum for details.

They both have same gun layout and position
this doesn't mean Atago is inferior in fact i think the gun position is helpful compare to Mogami 's especially on kiting because most people don't like pushing
and speaking of pushing, Atago isn't in a disadvantage in fact Atago have an advantage during pushing, that is her forward firing torpedo.

Worse rudder, that is wrong
the turning radius is just 10 meters more
and atago actually have excellent rudder shift time
i am not sure about people's built personally i use rudder shift upgrade on most of my IJN cruisers especially since stealth on atago doesn't really cut it as increasing the rudder time allows you to dodge some long range AP especially those 460 yamato lol pen shells from long distance.

TL;DR
Atago doesn't need to be strengthened she at her current stage is one of the more balanced ships and doesn't need any changes at her tier and she isn't inferior to myoko

I don't have the Atago but I do have the ARP Takao.

I think she is a strong ship. Good guns, good stealth, decent armour and manoeuvrability, she is a great ship all-round. Plus she has a heal to boot. There is a reason she is sometimes called the Paytago. :Smile-_tongue:

Atago is a good ship, Atago used to be the best tier 8 Cruiser until IFHE came, now Kutuzov is better, but Atago is still good.

so no, no buff or anything
