Unlocked and bought the Budyonny, early impressions are very good. Nurnberg reload with soviet gun arcs.
Scharnhorst can’t stand toe to toe with Colorado/Nagato, unless they get close enough to torp.
Bismarck with AFT/Manual secondaries is hilarious, not much damage but you will be set on fire and the impact of being peppered constantly from 10.5 km is tremendous.
Bismarck is an anti-dd battleship, german sonar+awesome secondaries means they will have a bad day torping or straying to close.
