Ship Guide: Omaha

The tier 5 United States Navy cruiser Omaha is a very deadly warship at closer ranges due to its fast firing main guns and short range torpedoes.  The Omaha is extremely fragile and takes critical hits to the citadel, turrets, and propulsion system very easily against other cruisers and battleships.  Since the Omaha is speedy and excels at short ranges it is good against destroyers, other cruisers, and for surprising battleships.  At the time it is very important in the Omaha to make sure you are not the primary target if you can since you will not last very long under sustained enemy fire.
