Well, one of the big things is that '43 is nowhere as good as the original Belfast, meaning that this new one has a LOT to live up to.

Then again, Smoke + Radar is never a bad thing to have...

It's a bad thing to be up against.

Not enough options.

Maybe needs "Mehfast" option.

I like the 43. The only issue I have with it is the bullshit reload of the main battery guns. 10.5 seconds on 6" guns at T8 ??? is the balans department on crack or something?  The reason T7 Belfast is still better than T8 Belfast is the gun reload.

I have OG so I don't need 43...

BUT

I would honestly just learn how to radar Edin if you want an RN CL at T8 with radar...

Radar on OG Belfast is mostly OP because it's at T7 and there's not many at that tier to counter the smoke.

Radar at T7 was the issue, I think 43 gave up too much DPM in exchange for it from what I've been reading.

*Shrugs* no smoke ship is ever that bad... And I don't object to balanced premiums in the slightest but this is merely a classic example of how WG have built their game on powercreep. A balanced premium is underwhelming - that's REALLY sad.

Belfast  43 is still a very strong ship with a plethora of policing consumables against lolibote.

However, whereas at tier 7 she has almost no competition, at tier 8 there are a lot more cruisers that have access to such consumables. This make relegate her role to purely cap denial ship.

Any attempt at pushing can be severely punished, as BB at 8,9,10 has a lot more access to 16 inch+ guns.

She definitely will be invaluable to CW on tier 8 as she take care of her own. But random ? You really need the DPM, not to mention the paltry 9% fire chance.
