The main feature of the new cruisers is their effective armor piercing shells. They have high armor penetration for cruisers, good ballistics, and a short arming threshold, which lowers the number of overpenetrations. These shells will be effective both against cruisers and battleships.

These strengths are offset with an average reload time and special accuracy settings: as range increases, shell dispersion grows faster than with other cruisers.

Access to the Surveillance Radar consumable also makes them most effective at medium ranges.

Detailed parameters will be announced shortly.
