World of Warships Supertest: Japanese Tier IX Cruiser Takahashi

5 min read

Historical background

Just like Shimanto is an upscaled Mogami using the army 150 mm guns, Takahashi is an upscaled Ibuki using the same armament. As I already said before, the ship is completely fake.

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

Just like Shimanto before, Takahashi looks quite lackluster. In terms of firepower, her DPM is underwhelming and the high firing range isn’t properly usable because of the ballistics. The torpedoes, while having high damage and flooding chances, have terrible speed and rather poor concealment. Even for area denial, they wouldn’t be particularly useful.

Finally, she combines weak armor protection and large size, which means that battleships will have no trouble clapping her hard.
