The CL-154 light cruiser project was prepared in November 1944. The ship was designed to carry the latest 127 mm dual-purpose mounts as her main armament, with her main function being to provide air defense. These guns were initially designed specifically for the Montana-class battleships, but they were never completed.

Rule 1: Never listen to Armada
This ship is amazing
@Tristan Jones did you saw the modules recommendation part? They put the range mod in slot 6
range in slot 6 for a ship that relies heavily in DPM lmao
And where are we..? In the commentsection of Armada… Please people stop complaining 😐
Something broken that isn’t Russian… Weird…
You certainly don’t see that very often. Don’t you.
Austin broken kekw
For 15s mayyyyybe
Instantly melts a ship every 1:30..
@Danhvn true.. but angling in a DD doesn’t do much lol
@Winter Soldier why are you even in that kill zone of an Austin when she has no radar again?
@Danhvn I’ll be honest it was a total “oh crap moment” I stumbled into one in my Kleber. With the speed boost and dodging I actually did ok but I was already at half Heath and couldn’t drop off fast enough
@Winter Soldier well, better luck next time
@Danhvn LOL cheers
Player: Thunderer is the meta
Wg removed Thunderer but here is US bias Austin
Player: What the hell is that reload, it is like using light cruiser gun with the same reload as Bofor.
Austin’s 127mm guns irl has auto loader with 1.5~1.7s reload
So when she activates her MBRB, you’re seeing her realistic reload
@Danhvn yes sir the total shots per min is like 3 Bofor Anti aircraft guns
@Danhvn …for less than 20 seconds, then it becomes the worst dpm cruiser in T10
Less HE DPM than a stock Gearing lmao
literally everyone in O7: this ship isn’t overpowered, as it has clear weaknesses and bad DPM for most of the game
Some CC with galaxy brain: mmm don’t like that assessment
Who is that CC with the brain of a galaxy I wonder)))? Does its name start with F, does it end with U or ASS? HMM.
@cheeky breeky Flamu is overexaggerating in that regard. And says who? He is one player, when literally the winning clan is saying the ship is balanced. So Flamu is wrong
@ANUBHAV SHARMA Flamu overexaggerates everything, same with MrGibbins (though more on deadeye for him); their content is good, but their ways of conveying their opinions aren’t.
@ZER0TW0 they do it for views. They are not worth it
Austin was primarily designed to protect aircraft carrier and, transport from kamikaze attacks with its powerful AA turrets
Cruisers were the ship types Austin was supposed to protect by reinforcing It’s AA capability.
Use it to pull/move “Evergiven” Cargo ship that blocked the Suez Canal.
first woman to drive in the middle east
@LucaKro krowinkel hahahaha funny 😐
Now we know why WG thinks the Austin is balans. They use range mod on slot 6.
Yeah, I thought wtf xD
But since I don´t have the ship (nor the steel) I may be wrong.
idk about anything else, the ending music is pretty damn badass
Cruisers were the primary ship types to fend off against Kamikaze attacks with their powerful AA fire support.
Don’t worry guys this isn’t overpowered… thats because every ship on the map will target it once they learn of its existence
Austin was AA cruiser and the reload booster makes Austin an assault rifle
Y luego llegan los imbéciles que dicen que los portaaviones están rotos y son tan ciegos que no se paran a mirar esto .
Yeah you just said the answer already it was designed to protect Aircraft Carriers
Video: Austin was meant to shoot down Kamikazes
Also video: haha usn planes go splash
Are you serious, actually making a guide for the Austin? this ship is a fucking steel ship, of course 2 out of 10 players who might get the austin could be plebs who don’t know how to play the game and simply stacked steel, but the rest of the players who got the Austin should be around 58% to 70% WR, this guide is unneeded.
Unlimited. Reload. Booster.
This is so hilariously op it’s a bad joke
For those who called it OP:
– Worst health of all Tier 10 ships. (lower than Smolensk)
– 12 guns with 8 SECONDS base reload (No upgrades, skills.)
– Sure MBRB is unlimited, but you can only use it every two minutes or so. While it’s on cooldown, you can easily get out-traded by other ships.
– Prone to HE: Enjoy getting blasted every 4-6k from HE salvoes, especially from British battleships. (Conqueror and Thunderer can easily penetrate the citadels even with HE.)
– Horrible ballistics.
– Without MBRB, your DPM is worse than stock Gearing.
in essence, what we have here, is an Atlanta class on Steroids
