5.4 might include Radar.

Only RU and US? Where is the balance to other nations? 

Because the Japanese already have the best cruisers in the game from a hard stat point of view and DE have the enhanced Hydroacoustic perk. They don't need it.

US cruisers needed something interesting (this replaces the scout fighter by the way so you gain 30s of area coverage in exchange for 4 minutes of zonal coverage) beyond just AA (making them destroyer hunters is a nice way to nudge them).

The RU cruisers look balanced around a heavy support setup, but I think they're going to have problems on their own.

IJN navy didn't use radar till late 1944. Most top tier US CA's need some kind of buff. This would be a good one.

Factually untrue:

Following the disastrous loss of four of the Combined Fleet's fast carriers on 4 June 1942, Kondō's force withdrew to Japan.[27] On 14 July she was assigned as the flagship of the restructured Third Battleship Division. In August, Kongō was drydocked at Kure to receive surface-detection radar and additional range finders.[4]

What's the difference between radar and hydro-search? Cannot detect torps?

Edit: N/m it's in the reddit link, can't spot torps.

High tier IJN DDs still drop torps from 12-20km.

Yeah, this radar concept looks like it's hurting the wrong ships and the wrong playstyle to me, especially given that it doesn't spot torps.

I don't see why they shouldn't instead implement scout planes as they were actually used: You point them in a direction, and they fly out and back in a loop. Has much more skill dependence because you have to pick the right direction and the DDs can evade the planes.

Increase detection range only? (Right now we do not notice much about spotting range but it is there based on the ship height I think). Remove camo paint bonus?

What about increased accuracy? Removal of paint bonus when aiming? Does it remove paint bonus (both acquisition & aim)?

Looks like this will nerf stealth torp range for T8+. Do you guys think that getting the 5th tier concealment expert captains skill will have much less value? The faster torp T3 skill may be more valued since you be visible when Torping.

No, most DDs are firing from beyond 10km at that tier and 20s of being spotted isn't a problem at that range. 

Also why is the forum so broke on mobile?

The weird thing about the way radar looks to be implemented is as a consumable. That way it will be off most of the time. It negates all concealment when it is on at 10 km and in. I realize this is a game, but radar was always on.
