Supertest: Pan-Asian Tier X Cruiser Jinan

3 min read

Historical background

The Jinan is based on an AA cruiser preliminary design (S-511-66: “5”/54 Cal. Cruiser – Scheme “C”). This design was calling for an 8 550 tons light cruiser armed with new 127 mm/54 guns in twin turrets equipped with a new auto-loading system and was the basis for the CL-154 class. It was, however, abandoned in March 1945.

Jinan herself has the 4th turret replaced with an additional 76.2 mm AA mount. This could mean that she is also taking elements from the 5″/54 Cal. D.P. Cruiser – Design Study “A”.

On top of that, the ship carries no less than four quintuple torpedo launchers.

The ship is named after the capital of Shandong province in Eastern China.

Personal Opinion

On paper, Jinan looks pretty strong. Although her base firing range is relatively limited, the DPM is satisfying and with the ballistics of her guns, she will be able to abuse island covers easily. Her torpedo power is also no joke with 10 torpedoes per side and a reload booster in case you really need to make sure that whatever may pass in a certain area dies.

Basically, the ship looks like a big destroyer with a citadel and amazing torpedo power, especially considering that cruisers have skills like Enhanced Torpedo Explosive Charge to boost their damage.
