Key Features:
Maya is armed with eight powerful 203-mm guns that have high accuracy and chance to cause a fire by HE shells, but low firing range. She also is equipped with four 610-mm quadruple torpedo tubes with wide aiming angles, and high torpedo damage, and speed.
Maya has good concealment, high speed and HP pool, well-armoured deck, but a vulnerable citadel. She is equipped with a Main Battery Reload Booster consumable, which is not standard for Japanese cruisers, along with the Repair Party and Fighter consumables, and a choice between the Defensive AA Fire or Hydroacoustic Search consumables in a single slot. 
In comparison with Atago, Maya is equipped with Main Battery Reload Booster and has more powerful and faster torpedoes. At the same time, she has fewer main battery guns, less armoured deck, as well as a lower range and higher reload time of torpedoes.

  1. Great job. In my opinion, in terms of characteristics, it should have the same range of torpedoes (10Km) as other ships from VI (Aoba), VII (Myoko) and its brother from VIII (Atago), since the Japanese take them very seriously for the long range of their torpedoes. For everything else, it is a level VII Atago that is not bad at all and many of us would like to have a ship like that, until we try it we cannot see its result.

    1. No news on that ship ๐Ÿ˜•, as soon as there is, I will post it on the blog.

  3. Hello, the Maya's torpedoes don't seem bad to me, it's something different, more costly range, but it does double the damage. Now I'm critical, her armor is much inferior to her brother Atago, that's wrong. You will see the Yamato has exactly the same armor as the Musashi and they are different tiers.
