Player Opinion

Performance

Practically the Pensacola upchucked at the cost of losing a turret, the New Orleans proves her worth as being one of the most solid cruisers at her tier. While she can not match her Japanese counterpart the Mogami in terms of destroyer or cruiser shredding, her guns are sound enough to deal practical damage to her heavy cruiser colleagues and her rate of fire makes her into a sizable asset as well as with her good AA suite.

Pros

  • faster firing high caliber guns
  • improved response time
  • citadel has increased armor
  • good ergonomics
  • all turrets are now triple mount

Cons

  • what is basically a souped up Pensacola at tier 8
  • loses a turret compared to her predecessor


Historical Info

The New Orleans class cruisers were a class of seven heavy cruisers built for the United States Navy (USN) in the 1930s. Originally called the Astoria-class cruiser, the class was renamed after Astoria was sunk and the surviving ships of the class underwent substantial reconstruction.


These ships participated in the heaviest surface battles of the Pacific War. Astoria, Quincy, and Vincennes were all sunk in the Battle of Savo Island, and three others were heavily damaged in subsequent battles in the Guadalcanal campaign. Only Tuscaloosa, the single ship of the class to spend most of World War II in the Atlantic, got through the war without being damaged. Collectively, ships of the class earned 64 battle stars.

The four surviving ships were laid up immediately after the end of the war, and sold for scrap in 1959.
