The FF-X, and FF-Y, come at level 22/24 and are very good.
Best use of High Level Neuts!!!!! I had a hi lvl Neut crew on an FFY set up for ASW.
It was an SS killer of the first order. With Hi lvl gunners, it could kill DD's and stun CLs.
Hi speed with deadly guns. 1 DC rack amidship and 2 on the stern. It was a blast to
play. I had a FFX armed with torps using the same crew. Found memories of sinking
wounded BB's in GB and torping CV's in the end game with it. But the FFY was the best, most fun
ship I think I ever played.
Then, in some special event, I was able to nation the crew even though they were above
lvl 25. (I think they were lvl 35)
Scrapped the FFY. Built another but never let neuts get over 25. Wasn't as much fun
so I finally scrapped it too.
One option is to build an FFY and go sub hunting.
