So this build takes account for the long range of Khaba’s guns, the speed of her acceleration and deceleration, and her 50 mm plating. Just angle your ship towards enemy and juke shells by alternating between 1/4 speed and Full Back. You should be able to make shells miss and when they hit, they either bounce or get (fairly) neutralized by 50mm of steel. Farm with HE and get salty mail. Don’t forget broadside ships get punished by AP.
The ship was designed as a destroyer flotilla leader. No destroyer in the world could rival her in terms of speed, while her armour and the power of her artillery were comparable to those of light cruisers. Dual-purpose main guns and a battery of automatic AA guns ensured a strong AA defence.View Ship
