Chester
69300
A light cruiser with reasonably good speeds for her time, but suffering from rather poor armament and armor. The ship could act as a scout and a destroyer flotilla leader. The cruisers of this class were the first ships in the U.S. Navy to feature turbine propulsion. They remained the only turbine cruisers in the U.S. Navy for a long time.

Player Opinion

Early Research

First upgrade should be the Fire control system to get an increase in gun range.

Second get the Hull type B upgrade for increased Hull HP and extra main and secondary guns.

Lastly get the new gun upgrade, 127mm to 152mm give you a nice damage increase.

Pros

  • When full upgraded the Chester turns into an almost Proto St Louis.
  • 24.4 knots speed with a quick rudder shift makes the Chester manoeuvre fast for its size.
  • Works well in groups.

Cons

  • Large size makes the Chester a Torpedo magnet.
  • Short gun range compared to the IJN Tier 2 Cruiser.
  • Does not stand up well to Tier 3 Battleships alone.
  • Weak Armour despite its armoured look.
