On the Midway why does BTD upgrade to XSB2D if XSB2D is the prototype of the BTD-1 (shouldn't this be a downgrade?!?!?!)

XSB2D  is a variant with Rear Guns

Although a downgrade, it also equipped with more Guns

BTD-1 Destroyer was a result of XSB2D removing the self defense turret and adding more armor and fuel... Yet in WoWS XSB2D has better survivability... And BTD-1 actually has self defense in game...

 

Which reminds me of a joke

"Ok Ms. Fubuki, tell me what are the main advantages of a Type 93 torpedo?"

-"Yes! Type 93 is fast, powerful, long ranged and concealing!"

"Damn, are you from CBT or sth?"

But XSB2D should be less survivable it would make more sense for BTD-1 to be succeeded by XBTD-2 (which is faster because it's semi-jet and is an is actually an improvement of the BTD-1) instead of it's prototype (which uses the same engine but carries more weight and should be slower also XSB2D has 3 bladed propeller vs BTD-1's 4).
