Supertest: Dutch Tier V Cruiser Celebes

3 min read

With Celebes, we enter the realm of paper ships for the Dutch cruiser line. In fact, from what I could gather, it’s a WG-made ship as a potential evolution of the De Ruyter-class.

For the classic reminder, this is a ship in testing, anything can change so don’t look at her like she would already be released.

Personal Opinion

Well…. looks decent-ish but for example, the Omaha seems to outclass her in most categories except for the citadel protection. She still definitely looks better than Kotovsky but it’s not really an achievement.
