So what is Tsurugi? Another 18 inch tier 9? Poor man’s Mushi? 

very squishy 457 mm BB with torps and occasional AP pen issues. Stealthy, pretty fast, and good accuracy, though.

And I mean very squishy. BB looks at you? You lose health. A bunch of heavy cruisers can even cit you at mid to close range. Found that out the painful way when I ran into a surprise DM my first game in Tsurugi.

Oh, yes. Squishy gives it too much credit for resilience, its brittle lol. Indeed, 203's can cit it, and during the first game out an Agir clipped me for about 30K from medium range while I thought I was in an attitude that I will henceforth refer to as "angled".

I think she's perhaps a bit more interesting than being merely an alternative to Mushi. I'm wondering if she's been put together with at least part of an eye to PvE (basically Coop): she's pretty fast (I was getting 35 kt in a straight line earlier), and has the TRB-equipped torps (BBs and CVs only). Reasonable reload on the main guns too...

The dragon cammo is pretty cool too (if you like that sort of thing); another hard carry by the art department, although I *think* they may have got the number of toes wrong:

From what I read, Japanese dragons are supposed to have three toes?

Feets aside, she looks pretty spectacular - I may well get horribly sunk, but I'll look damn fine doing it!
