 Belfast '43 British Tier VIII Light Cruiser 1943

Belfast 1943 represents the Town-class light cruiser as she would have appeared in the year 1943. Her model differs from the one of cruiser "Belfast" in having a higher number of dual purpose guns and AA mounts, a slightly different superstructure geometry, and a Fighter catapult. The ship is equipped with twelve 152 mm guns with powerful HE shells, a torpedo armament with the ability to launch individual torpedoes, decent concealment, a "Short-Burst Smoke Generator" consumable, and a "Surveillance Radar" consumable with the 9 km ship detection range.

Thanks to her good concealment and "Surveillance Radar" consumable, Belfast '43 can help allies in fighting for caps and hunting for destroyers. Her special Smoke Generator - with its shorter reload and smoke screen dispersion times - will be useful when there is a need to retreat, but it doesn't allow to effectively fire at targets from inside the smoke.
