I own a Salem, over 200 battles and 800+k elite XP. 

Take Yoshino.

 

+ Just an alternative Des Moist, nothing special

+ 203 mm guns + no torps

+ The RP is from RN ships (very good if you don't take citadels), very good recovery

+ Weak Radar

+ No aircraft

+ No credit multiplier (REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE)

Yoshino
+ Has more competent guns than most T8 BBs 
-  Is very squishy and can be seen from outerspace 

Salem
+ Has access to witchcraft consumable
-  Looks dull, like a mass-produced budget car 

Idk much about Yoshino. I dismissed the default 3 pt and let her collect dust until I finish the Azur Lane collection.

Yoshino is a semi new model - based off of another premium ship Azuma. Salem is simply a Des Moines

Yoshino is a competent spam cruiser, her guns are accurate and the ballistics are enjoyable. With the 20km torps comes sweet surprise. Feels like a huge Atago but with top of the line range and ballistics.

Salem is a dumbed down Des Moines. Having that weak radar makes her quite useless in teamwork scenario. The DPM is DM grade but being a DM means it's more situational, Yoshino can just sit back and spam everyone that you can see. You shouldn't expect too much out of the heal, it's 2%*20secs(=RN heal), but it is only 100%/50%/33%(=normal cruiser heal, RN CL heal is 100%/60%/50%). i.e. normal penetrations will drain your reserve HP pool as fast as they drain DM HP pool, and if you get citadelled, you can't get much HP back. Yoshino isn't the best tanking ship either, but she can confidently angle against guns that cannot overmatch 30mm. And she has 5 heals max.

Overall, Yoshino should be your priority, and if you like DM as a cruiser killer, you can get Salem afterwards.
