Agano is too strong to be tier5. She has tier4 Cruiser Armament, but tier9 DD Torpedo.

I suggest she be tier 7 or 8 Light Cruiser, we need an additional cruiser line composing of smaller, lighter Cruisers that focuses on Torpedo armament, basically beefed up DD.

Basically, a scout cruiser line that diverges after Kuma? We could probably squeeze in the Nagara-class, Sendai-class, then the Aganos, then Ooyodo, and maybe end off with Tone. They'd have a longer sight range, more frequent plane launching and be less visible/more maneuverable with good AA at the cost of firepower. Basically like big destroyers.

Agano had both torpedoes launchers at the middle of the deck

Ooyodo Didn't have any Torpedoes launcher but armed with best secondaries AA that Akizuki Owned too (100 mm Tipe 98 AA gun)

Both of their main Guns could elevate to 55 degrees = better range but still slow velocity

Both seems good for premium

Sendai was like Kuma but have 2 x 4 Torpedoes launcher both of her side

Nagara was almost identical with Kuma

Both armed with 610 mm Type 93 Long lance (Kuma's was 533 mm Torpedo)

Honestly, Currently I don't know where to place this two on the tech tree

Fun fact: (Non of IJN Cruiser had effective anti aircraft Dual Purpose Main Gun)

Well, if it is Scout Cruiser then we shouldn't discount Mogami in her Aviation form. However, I think Nagara and Sendai are ill-suited for scouting role.

I'd prefer a branch of Cruiser that focuses on Torpedo though, they are basically DD that trades off part of stealth for firepower (the Iwaki is an example).

Nope! Furutaka will take place as tier 5 Cruiser.

So... expect Agano will be as prem ship or another line of Light Cruiser.

Sure love that idea.

Agano being a start to a new line of Light cruisers.
