ARP Ashigara — Japanese Tier VII cruiser.

A Heavy Cruiser of the "Fleet of Fog". Modeled after the Imperial Japanese Navy's 3rd Myoko-class cruiser, Ashigara. She is equipped with a specialized harpoon-cannon, replacing the Super-Graviton Cannon unit. Her Mental Model "Ashigara" has a warlike personality and does not think matters over carefully. Ashigara acts as one of the "Secretaries" in the "Student Council of the Fog", along with Haguro. This warship has been specially designed for World of Warships, and is modeled after Ashigara as she appears in "ARPEGGIO OF BLUE STEEL -ARS NOVA- Cadenza".

Player Opinion

Performance

Ashigara is a powerful being in "Arpeggio of Blue Steel" manga and its Ars Nova anime adaptation, with enormous speed, numerous matter annihilating weapons, and a protective field that is impenetrable to any weapon developed by humankind. However, so the game does not turn into "World of ARP Ships" with a few insignificant human targets cowering in the background, the developers have declined to provide her with her true complement of abilities and weaponry. ARP Ashigara performs exactly like the standard Myoko in the game (but without the ability to equip camouflage), and that means that she shares the same play style as regular Myoko. You can refer to the article on Myoko for her performance appraisal.

Her armor is quite weak, and her large citadel makes her vulnerable to AP shells. A well landed battleship salvo can potentially remove the majority of her health, and taking a page from Ashigara and just carelessly charging into the heat of battle is not recommended for any cruiser, but especially so for her because of her squishiness (and because she lacks the aforementioned impenetrable protective barrier). But she also has the powerful 203mm guns that are standard for the Japanese heavy cruisers with low shell arcs, reasonable AP and powerful HE with high fire chance, giving her a powerful offense that can devastate cruisers and burn down battleships. She receives the formidable 61cm torpedo with long range and potent warheads (but which are unfortunately neither homing, supercavitating, nor equipped with corrosive warheads) in two triple mounts on each side, though their limited rearward arc can limit their offensive potential. Her high speed and low detection range can be exploited to disengage when the fighting becomes hotter than you would like. While she has a reasonable AA complement and can function as an effective AA support ship when fitted with the right Equipment and Skills, she is better utilized as an offensive vessel, operating with the fleet or in cruiser squadrons to destroy cruisers and destroyers and harass battleships. ARP Ashigara is eager to battle, and guided by a decent captain she can be a potent force on the battlefield.

Pros:

  • All the pros of the standard Myoko.
  • Does not take up port slots.
  • No modules to research as she is fully upgraded.
  • Visible to other players who have enabled the "Arpeggio" filter in their ship carousel.
  • Comes with free Captain's Skills Points (depending on the event).
  • Skills can be customized for her, as captain is specific to this ship.
  • Special unique announcer (voiced by her voice actor from the Ars Nova series).

Cons:

  • All the cons of the standard Myoko.
  • Cannot mount functional camouflage.
  • Captain cannot be transferred to ships of other nations.
  • Voice notifications are in Japanese.
  • Does not come with overwhelming firepower, speed, submergence, Klein field, or "harpoon cannons" of Ashigara in Ars Nova.

Research

As a premium ship, ARP Ashigara doesn't have any upgrades to research.

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

As this ship is basically a copy of the tech tree Myoko, the following recommended upgrades are the same:

Commander Skills

As this ship is basically a copy of the tech tree Myoko, the following recommended commander skills for maximum effectiveness are the same. However, as it is a copy, players can experiment with different commander skill builds.

Consumables

Just like the tech tree Myoko ship, players have access to the following consumables on ARP Ashigara::

Again, premium Damage Control Party is recommended in case the player finds their rudder knocked out in a precarious situation. Defensive Fire is recommended for players with an anti-air build and Hydroacoustic Search for those looking to counter and or hunt enemy destroyers.

Camouflage

As this is an ARP ship, the ARP Ashigara cannot mount camouflage.

Signals

As this ship is basically a copy of the tech tree Myoko, the following recommended signals for maximum effectiveness are the same. However, as it is a copy, players can experiment with different signals combinations.
