So people often say keep the 155's on the Mogami.

Does this mean that people usually leave their IJN CA Captain on Mogami and start a new one for Ibuki?

I mean so they can take IFHE on their 155 Mogami Captain?

I have a lot of 10-point ARP captains lying around so I just chucked Nachi onto my Ibuki.

Yup - This, for me the Mogami is a keeper. I've got the Ibuki, just not got around to grinding yet as Im doing other lines.

I think you canget away more with a 10 pt captain on 203mm cruisers, then on 155s, as you really need IFHE

With the 7.11 patch all IJN 203mm guns are getting Zao dispersion. So I'd factor that in before you make a decision if I were you.

I've switched back and forth a couple of times between the 155 and 203 on my Mogami. I prefer the 203. Two reasons: 1) the glacial turret traverse of the 3x155mm means you really have to plan your firing position well in advance. There's not the same versatility in being able to turn and track a target for instance. The 203mm traverse is far more comfortable. 2) If you don't take IFHE - and factoring in predominant T10 MM - there's plenty of targets you can't damage outside of fires. Or you take IFHE and give up being able to switch captains around AND 4 skill points that could be spend on a whole bunch of QoL buffs. Neither is ideal. In contrast the 10 gun volley of 203mm still has excellent alpha strike capable of one-shotting DDs easily, as well as significantly better penetration values.

Nachi Girl is one of the few ARPs that I kept. She has 14 juicy points to play with.

I could do the same and retrain her back on her native "mental model" ship 😛

I forget sometimes that ARP ships are semi-premium in their own right.

I just wish you could buy camos for them with doubloons to make them full blown premiums.

Good heads up. Thanks for reminder.
