Suggested Strategy Edit
With the Tier VII Konigsberg, the KM CL line truly starts to come into its own. Unlike the previous KM CLs up until this point, the Konigsberg can perform the duties expected of a CL and outshine equally-tiered DDs, thanks to its sleek profile, good speed, and excellent array of armaments.
Your main guns deal an impressive amount of damage for a CL -- more damage per shell than even the dreaded tier IX Brooklyn of the US Navy. Unlike a DD, you should rely on these guns as your primary method of engagement, while generally reserving your torpedoes for things like covering a retreat. You also want to hold off on using mines unless you are covering a retreat, particularly one through any kind of chokepoint.
Don't neglect your flak! You have AA shells available in both your primary and secondary gunsets. Often, it is a good idea to focus solely on knocking down enemy scouts and other aircraft to cover your teammates while waiting for an opportune moment to strike.
Since you have 9 guns in your main armament, a flak salvo from these guns is quite powerful. However, these guns are limited in their maximum angle, so keep enemy aircraft at a distance if you want to make extensive use of them.
As a CL, you're somewhat squishy (though not nearly as much as the previous KM CLs), so there aren't many engagements you can take straight-up. That is to say, you can't take an even 1v1 fight trading salvo for salvo against much else other than DDs, subs, and ships of lower tier. However, your damage output is still formidable. Be sneaky and opportunistic. Screen capital ships on your team, and/or put pressure on ships that are engaging them.
