How does she handle when under enemy BB fire? I haven't had a chance to test her armor and angling just yet but hopefully will be able too soon.
She does quite well. its ony when she comes under fire from those BB that have a longre reach that she can suffer, but on the whole not too bad, even her AA is not too bad
On paper I was surprised to see her AA compliment. Think the only reason it doesn't do better is due to the ranges of the guns. Took the 10 point captain that was part of the bundle and specced him a little differently to see what might happen.
Right now he's running:
Superintendent (Definitely need those extra heal charges)
Advanced Firing Training
This opens up the detection range to 13.7km instead of 11.4 but increases the range of the AA guns. You're still no Texas, but I find myself seeing 2, sometimes 4 planes shot down on an attack wave. The 4 is rare and usually when I make the enemy Bomber squads chase me down, spending more time in the AA bubble. She should be an interesting ship to test, especially since that repair being unique opens up the tier 2 and tier 3 captain skills because you don't have to be so reliant on taking High Alert and Basics of Survivability.
