Many changes have been done with the WoWs game mechanics with current and past update improvements. As such some ships IMO have fallen behind in being designed balance. For me I have noticed the Krasny Krym being a victim of change. She is not competitive at tier 6 and 7 matchmaking. Always a under performer in maneuvering, and gunnery for those tiers. She has a high detection range, poor range for guns, and torpedoes are only for defensive purposes.  The Krasny Krym has a sister ship, the tier 4 Svietlana and when comparing the two there is not much of a difference between them.

At most the Krasny Krym is like tier 4.5 with horrible MM. And I know that WG is not going to make a locked tier 5 matchmaking for this ship. From what I can suggest to balance, the Krasny Krym is to either reduce surface detection, give it smoke,  or bounce her to tier 4 from her present state. Because at tier 6 or 7 you are giving the ship easily to the enemy before the Krasny Krym can get into action. Unless that was its design intention to put teams at disadvantage all along. What do you guys think? Would you have better suggestions in improving the game balance of this ship?
