Analysis

Kuma Kai

Priority: Low

At first remodel, she has good Firepower and Torpedo stat for a light cruiser, meaning she can do Artillery Spotting with decent damage at day and packs a good punch at night, too.
Her ASW stat also allow her to perform OASW attacks with proper setup.

Kuma Kai Ni

Priority: Low-Medium

On her second remodel, she has good Firepower and Torpedo stat for a light cruiser, meaning she can do Artillery Spotting with decent damage at day and packs a good punch at night, too.
Her ASW stat also allow her to perform OASW attacks with proper setup.
The main perk of this form is the ability to equip Seaplane Fighters which can help reach desired air-power levels. Slot sizes are too small to get any real use out of Seaplane Bombers.

Kuma Kai Ni D

Priority: Medium-High

Her third remodel lowers her torpedo stat and a small amount of firepower which takes her back down to average in these areas.
She makes up for these stat losses by gaining the ability to equip mini-subs to launch opening torpedo strikes.
The ability to equip landing craft and tanks also helps her to deal with installation-type enemies.
Her ASW stat is slightly increased, allowing her to perform OASW attacks a bit more easily.

Recommended Roles

  • Surface combat
  • ASW

Important Info

  • Required for A58, A74, B52, B85, and B163.
