Cheshire - British Tier VIII Premium Cruiser 1940

HMS Cheshire

flag  Cheshire - British Tier VIII Premium Cruiser 1940

In 1940, a project for a 15,500-ton cruiser armed with 203 mm guns was considered. It was believed that this caliber should suffice for performing combat missions. However, a year prior to that, 234 mm and 254 mm guns were mentioned in projects. A compromise between the lower cost of the 15,500-ton cruiser and 234 mm guns would have involved installing twin-gun main battery turrets on such a cruiser.

 Key Features of Cheshire

Key Features of Cheshire

  • Six 234 mm guns placed in three turrets. The shells are capable of dealing significant damage for their tier. The time it takes for the turrets to traverse 180 degrees is just 18 seconds flag VIII Cheshire's high-caliber artillery can be aimed at a target faster than the 152 mm guns of some light cruisers of the same tier. The HE shells she fires can penetrate armor up to 59 mm thick.
  • Her torpedo armament comprises two quadruple-tube torpedo launchers with tube-by-tube launching capabilities. Torpedo range—8 km.
  • The cruiser boasts good armor for her tier and quite a large HP pool.
  • The Specialized Repair Teams consumable restores 2% of her total HP per second and can restore up to 50% of any damage dealt to her citadel.
  • Her decent AA defense system is additionally reinforced with the Defensive AA Fire consumable. This consumable can be replaced with Hydroacoustic Search as an alternative.
