Player Opinion

Performance

Based on the unrealized H-39 design plans, the Friedrich der Große (English: Frederick the Great) is essentially a super-Bismarck, sporting the same dual AB-XY turret layout (but with larger guns), the same secondary battery (but with a touch longer range), and the same Hydroacoustic Search (but with longer range and duration). Thanks to the gain in displacement, Friedrich has a significantly larger hit point pool than Bismarck, though loses a bit of maneuverability and concealment in the process.

As with Bismarck, Friedrich excels at close-range brawls where the abysmal accuracy of her main guns is less of a factor, while her powerful secondary armament combined with her decent maneuverability and turret traverse can dish out the damage. Here her turtleback armor and Hydroacoustic Search are key factors in protecting her from return fire. Unfortunately, with the rapidly increasing range and firepower at high tiers, combined with unprotected approaches on many maps, she runs a high risk of being focused and sunk if played too forward at the beginning of the game. Captains should moderate their aggression until an opportunity for a combined push and/or to run down a smaller group of enemies presents itself.

Friedrich has the option between two sets of guns: slightly faster-firing but lighter 406 mm guns, and slightly slower-firing but heavier 420 mm guns. The differences are quite marginal in practice; many captains opt to stay with the 406 mm guns as the higher rate of fire makes the poor accuracy slightly less frustrating, and the 420 mm guns cost XP and credits.

Pros:

  • Signature German turtleback armor scheme prevents citadels at close range
  • Enhanced Hydroacoustic Search with long range and duration
  • Powerful and numerous secondaries
  • Decent speed and maneuverability for a ship her size
  • Fast turret traverse for a battleship
  • Large HP pool

Cons:

  • Large turn radius
  • Poor detection range

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

As a Tier IX ship, Friedrich der Große has access to all six Upgrade Slots. Friedrich der Große can build for Secondaries or AA.
