Remember the last time I told you that Missouri could now print money, here are 6 battles from a group of Russian supertesters that had been testing in it with and w/o premium, note that you can earn nearly 50.000 silvers by not proving yourself in the battle. They concluded that Missouri has a profitability rate higher than tier 8 premium Tirpitz, Atago, Prinz Eugen…by 35%. Combining with Zulu, permanent camoflague will significantly boost your earning rate up to 60%. In the end, 750.000 free experience for a tier 9 premium ship which can print money 2 times more than a tier 8 premium is not really a bad choice.
+ Guns are very accurate, better than Scharnhorst, shells fly fast, good reload time, can overmatch almost all any cruisers it faces and do decent damage to battleships at range.
+ Good turning radius.
+ Secondaries have very good fire chance.
+ Hard hitting torpedoes, very good torpedo launch sector, with just a slight angle you can almost drop both tubes without exposing your belly.
+ Good armor for a cruiser, citadel slightly above waterline.
– Slow rudder shift time.
– Torpedo tubes are placed on the stern, and they are big, you can not miss them. Any smart captains will try to destroy or incapacitate them before they come into the range of “torpedo dance time”.
– Shells lose speed and penetration faster than Scharnhorst, lacking penetration power to fight high tier battleships.
– Because its armor is good, it will manage to “take” heavy damage more often than over-penetration.
