  1. “World of Tanks 0.7.3 Supertest is currently testing the US Cruiser changes.” Not only back in time but a crossover confirmed?:P

    1. That might be on the Light Cruiser line. The Buffalo is a Heavy Cruiser based on the 203mm guns, a replacement for the Baltimore.

    2. It would make absolutely no sense on the USN CA line. None of the cruisers above t5 ever had and will have torpedos. Giving the T9 torpedos would be a major design flaw. There needs to be at least some consistency and in case of USN CAs it’s 203s with good normalization, radar at t8+ and no torpedos.
