SGM3 or CSM1 on 2m slot for kiting-oriented cruisers?

I just bought the Charles Martel and will re-buy Mogami soon because I like to run around and spam HE in a cruiser :Smile_Default:

Would like to hear your opinion on which module I should choose for the 2m credit module slot. I have tested Steering Gear mod on PT server and feel pretty fun but few people play seriously there so I'm not sure if it's worth sacrificing concealment and extra dispersion penalty. It would be really nice if someone who used the SGM3 on cruisers on live server could provide me with some input on this matter.

Cheers and thanks in advance.

Keep playing the Charles Martel instead!

Algerie is strong, but Charles Martel is SUSANOO!! 

#look at the Charles stat at WoWsnumber

 

my friend said 152 cal in mogami is better for long range spam, but CONCEALMENT IS MUSS!! (if you are on cruiser that kiting)

and bet me 10gold, everyone will advice for taking concealment...

Who or what is this Susanoo thing you keep on bringing up? It is the 2nd time today I have seen you do this.

 

As for the OP, I prefer Concealment on Mogami but I know Aerroon had a Mogami video where he slapped on both Steering Gear upgrades and was pretty happy with it.

 

Depends on personal preference I guess.

depends on the acceleration, Turing radius of the ship and original rudder shift speed when picking the ship, and then think how well you can WASD

For kiting CAs, notably the Mogami, I prefer to use the SGM3 rather than concealment mod because lol rudder > stealth torping

Concealment, because who doesn't like jumping DD's with a CA early in the match?

SGM2 + Concealment is sufficient for Charles. I don't have much of a problem w 7.9s rudder shift; it's good enough by my standards.

It enables me to sail closer to front line ships than the SGM3 build, and I gotta say the guns aren't half bad either.

The boosted speed offsets the slow rudder shift; hence, you won't notice a thing once you start dodging.

 

The bigger question here is whether or not you have the Engine Boost mod installed on the Charles. You will enjoy having 270s of 39kn top speed :3
