Player Opinion

Performance

For a graphic summary of ships Tiers VIII thru XI see LittleWhiteMouse's "Actual AA DPS".


The Ship

Tier V Chungking marks the start of the Pan-Asian cruiser line and introduces players to the defining characteristics of future ships. She features powerful deepwater torpedoes, a smoke generator, and decent AA defenses for her tier, but has lower survivability and weaker main guns.

Her tight 570m turning circle and quick 6.4 second rudder shift help her avoid incoming attacks. However, her 32.3 knot top speed is on the slow side for a Tier V cruiser. Chungking has a good concealment which can be reduced to just 9km, allowing her to reach advantageous firing positions unseen or disengage from dangerous situations.

Chungking mounts a standard cruiser Damage Control PartyWhen activated, instantly repairs fires, floods, and incapacitations, and prevents more for the duration., which is active for 5 seconds with a 60 second cool down, and a Smoke GeneratorWhile active, generates a smoke screen that blocks line-of-sight for both enemies and teammates.. The smoke generator has a long emission time of 30 seconds creating a large smoke cloud, although each individual puff will disperse after 70 seconds, which is shorter than those created by British cruisers.

Armor

Chungking cannot rely on her armor to protect her. Her 13mm bow and stern plating can be overmatched by heavy cruiser AP shells and all HE will penetrate it. Her citadel plating is only 70mm thick, offering little protection against broadside shots. This thin armor combined with one of the smallest HP pools for a Tier V cruiser mean any incoming fire has the potential to cause serious amounts of damage in a short time.

Armament

Chungking mounts a relatively small main battery of six 152mm guns in three twin turrets, with a short firing range of just 12km. These guns reload slowly for their caliber at 9.5 seconds. Her low barrel count and relatively slow reload time mean she has one of the lowest DPM totals of Tier V cruisers. Even most Tier IV cruisers have more HE and AP DPM. This is further compounded by her low base fire chance of 9% per shell, meaning Chungking can only expect to set up to 3 fires per minute. Her slow turret traverse also makes it difficult to quickly switch targets.


Chungking mounts a triple torpedo launcher on each side with good firing angles. Her torpedoes are some of the strongest carried by any Tier V cruiser, with a 9.5km range and high damage and flood chance. They also have a low detection range, typically allowing ships less than 5 seconds to react. However, her reload time of almost 2 minutes limits the number of salvos she can launch. Players should also bear in mind that deep water torpedoes cannot damage destroyers.

Anti-Aircraft

Chungking has some of the best long range AA defenses at Tier V, even outperforming many battleships. Her long range guns reach out to 5.8km with some of the highest DPM at Tier V. They also produce 8 flak bursts, which can deal significant damage to aircraft that stray into range. The rest of her AA defenses are adequate for a Tier V cruiser; they can deal significant damage to Tier IV aircraft squadrons but are unlikely to deter a determined Tier VI carrier. Players should keep enemy aircraft at long ranges and use her long range AA defenses to support friendly ships under air attack.

Battle Performance

Chungking can be a challenging ship to play. Her low main battery DPM and slow turret traverse, slow torpedo reload, and small health pool mean she is unsuited to a straight up fight with almost any enemy ship. Even a Tier V destroyer can be a dangerous opponent. As Chungking does not have access to hydroacoustic search, players should be wary around enemy destroyers or when sitting in her smokescreen. Instead, she should use her concealment to reach a position to support team mates where she is less likely to become a target herself. Effective use of island cover and smoke screens is essential to reduce incoming fire and preserve health to remain in the battle.

Chungking should make use of her torpedoes where possible. They can be fired from stealth against distracted enemies or used while kiting away from enemy cruisers and battleships. Short range torpedo attacks can be devastating but reaching a launch position safely requires advance planning and use of cover.

Pros:

  • Good torpedo firing angles
  • Hard hitting deep water torpedoes
  • Agile
  • Small detection radius
  • Smoke screen consumable
  • Small target
  • Strong long range AA batteries

Cons:

  • Low main battery DPM
  • Turrets turn slowly
  • Low fire chance
  • Small hit point pool
  • Thin armor
  • Torpedoes reload slowly and cannot hit destroyers
  • No hydroacoustic search
