Buffalo — American Tier IX cruiser.

This heavy cruiser design appeared soon after the completion of development of cruiser Baltimore and was her direct successor (Project CA-B). The increased water displacement allowed engineers to significantly reinforce the ship's armor protection and armament. The number of main guns was augmented to total 12 overall.

Player Opinion


Pros:

  • Largest broadside amongst Tier IX heavy cruisers, 12 8-inch guns coupled with American super-heavy AP shells make her a prominent threat to any enemy ships showing its broadside.
  • Excellent AA firepower, similar to Baltimore.

Cons:

  • Firing off a full broadside requires showing a large portion of the side of the ship, making her vulnerable to return fire.
  • Significantly longer reload than Baltimore.
  • Shortest main battery range among all Tier IX cruisers.
  • High shell arcs and low AP shell velocity makes long range gunnery difficult.
  • Relatively sluggish compared to its predecessor, with a larger turning circle and significantly longer rudder shift time when stock.
