Huanghe — Pan-Asian promo premium Tier VI cruiser.

Wows_flag_China.png
A British light cruiser (HMS Aurora) intended to carry out close reconnaissance and counter-destroyer missions. In 1948, the ship was transferred to the Republic of China (Taiwan) but defected to the People's Liberation Army Navy (PLAN) a year later, becoming its most powerful combat unit. In the early 1950s, a plan was drawn up for the refurbishment of the cruiser by replacing her weapons and equipment with Soviet-made models.

Huanghe was first released for sale worldwide on 30 November 2017.

Player Opinion

Performance

Huanghe is very much comparable to another Tier VI cruiser with a similar Smoke Generator (While active, generates a smoke screen that blocks line-of-sight for both enemies and teammates.) consumable: HMAS Perth. However, there are some very key differences between the two. Huanghe only has three turrets to Perth’s four, but gains better shell characteristics, 0.4 kilometers more main battery range, and a faster main battery reload (by half a second).

Playing Huanghe should be familiar to Perth veterans, as they both have the same creeping smoke screen thanks to a unique Smoke Generator (While active, generates a smoke screen that blocks line-of-sight for both enemies and teammates.) consumable that operates on a principle different from that found on other ships. While other smokes have a relatively short activation time when laying down the screen itself, the Huanghe’s smoke activation timer lasts for 90 seconds. However, each 'puff' of smoke only lasts for 10 seconds, dissipating soon after having been lain. When moving at less than 12.5 knots, it is possible to stay hidden in the smoke even while creeping in one direction or another.

It should also be noted that Huanghe has the lowest detection of any Tier VI cruiser, and is the only one with a sub-10.0 km base detection range currently. Having this is good news for the ship, as she needs all the advantages afforded by this low detectability and the unique smoke. This is because she also has the lowest health pool for cruisers at the tier, an "honor" previously afforded to Nürnberg. With only six guns total, she is also somewhat under-gunned for her tier, and she even has one less torpedo per broadside than Perth (with only three in each mount compared to Perth’s four). These three torpedoes also do less individual damage than Perth’s, though they do reload faster. Huanghe also gets a choice between mounting the Hydroacoustic Search (While active, detects all enemy ships and torpedoes within the specified radius, regardless of obstacles (such as smoke screens or islands).) and Torpedo Reload Booster (When used, torpedo reload time is significantly reduced.) consumables, making her the first non-destroyer class ship to gain access to the latter.


Pros:

  • Can mount both Hydroacoustic Search (While active, detects all enemy ships and torpedoes within the specified radius, regardless of obstacles (such as smoke screens or islands).) and Smoke Generator (While active, generates a smoke screen that blocks line-of-sight for both enemies and teammates.) simultaneously. Additionally, Torpedo Reload Booster (When used, torpedo reload time is significantly reduced.) can be taken in place of Hydroacoustic Search.
  • The Smoke Generator (While active, generates a smoke screen that blocks line-of-sight for both enemies and teammates.) consumable functions similarly to that on Perth. This allows the ship to move at low speeds while remaining concealed within a smoke cloud.
  • Her quick rudder shift time combined with her small turning circle allow her to dodge long range fire easier than most cruisers.
  • Good mid-range torpedoes with wide firing angles.
  • Anti-aircraft armament is strong for her tier.
  • Lowest surface and air detection ranges of all Tier VI cruisers.

Cons:

  • Has the lowest amount of hit points of all Tier VI cruisers.
  • The ship is lightly armored and often takes high damage from enemy armor piercing shells.
  • Guns have a shorter firing range than most other cruisers at her tier.
  • Firepower feels lacking due to the ship having few, small guns.

Research

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

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

The recommended upgrades for Huanghe are as follows:

Upgrade Slot 2 provides three standard upgrade options. Of these, Damage Control System Modification 1 is generally viable. This slot also allows players to mount Hydroacoustic Search Modification 1 (+20% to duration of Hydroacoustic Search.), a special modification which increases the action time of the Hydroacoustic Search (While active, detects all enemy ships and torpedoes within the specified radius, regardless of obstacles (such as smoke screens or islands).) consumable.

Upgrade Slot 3 provides Huanghe with the ability to specialize in certain roles. AA Guns Modification 2 is the best choice for players wishing to specialize in anti-aircraft duties. Aiming Systems Modification 1 (-7% to maximum dispersion of main battery shells. / +20% to torpedo tubes traverse speed. / +5% to secondary battery maximum firing range. / -5% to maximum dispersion of secondary shells.) is a generally viable choice which reduces the dispersion of main battery shells, increases torpedo traverse speed, and slightly improves the range and dispersion of the secondary battery. Players considering alternative builds may choose to equip Secondary Battery Modification 2 (+20% to secondary battery maximum firing range. /    -20% to maximum dispersion of secondary battery shells.) to increase the ship's firepower in close-quarter engagements. This slot also allows players to mount Smoke Generator Modification 1 (+30% to duration of Smoke Generator. / -5% to duration of smoke clouds produced by Smoke Generator.), a special upgrade which increases the action time of the Smoke Generator (While active, generates a smoke screen that blocks line-of-sight for both enemies and teammates.) consumable. This upgrade is extremely useful and is highly recommended.

Commander Skills

Consumables

Huanghe can equip the following consumables:

As Huanghe's Smoke Generator (While active, generates a smoke screen that blocks line-of-sight for both enemies and teammates.) is the same as Perth's in terms of performance, it is highly recommended to mount the premium version. Torpedo Reload Booster (When used, torpedo reload time is significantly reduced.) is not recommended due to the lack of torpedoes the ship has, thus leaving Hydroacoustic Search (While active, detects all enemy ships and torpedoes within the specified radius, regardless of obstacles (such as smoke screens or islands).) as the only preferable option for Slot 2.

Camouflage

As a premium ship, Huanghe comes included with Type 10 camouflage that lowers her detection radius, reduces the accuracy of incoming shells, and increases the amount of experience she earns.

Signals

As a Tier VI cruiser, Huanghe can quickly spew out fire like most other Tier VI cruisers. To boost the effectiveness of her firepower, India X-Ray (+1% chance of causing a fire for bombs and shells with a caliber above 160mm. / +0.5% chance of causing a fire for bombs and shells with a caliber below 160mm. / +5% to the risk of your ship's magazine detonating.) and Victor Lima (+1% chance of causing a fire for bombs and shells with a caliber above 160mm / +0.5% chance of causing a fire for bombs and shells with a caliber below 160mm. / +4% chance of causing flooding.) are highly recommended in order to increase the fire chance of her shells. Sierra Mike (+5% to the ship's maximum speed.) will help Huanghe feel slightly more nimble while November Foxtrot (-5% reload time on all consumables.) will help get her consumables off cooldown faster.

As Huanghe is a premium ship, various economic and special signal flags can be mounted to further boost the economic and experience gains of the ship. However, as a mid-tier premium Huanghe does not make as much profit compared to a higher tier premium, so the economic and special signal flags may be saved for a higher tiered ship.
