Battle Levels

Mutsu — Japanese promo premium Tier VI battleship.

A Nagato-class battleship designed using experience gained in World War I to become one of the first "high-speed" battleships. The ship's armor protection was very good for her time. In addition to her primary armament, she also carried torpedo tubes.

Mutsu was released on both the NA and EU servers on 17 February 2017.

Player Opinion


Mutsu is a Tier VI Japanese Battleship, sister ship to Tier VII's Nagato. However, Mutsu is a tier lower as she has her pre-refit hull, meaning she has weaker armor and slower-loading guns with World War I-era shells.

Featuring eight (8) 410mm guns in a 4x2 configuration, Mutsu has the largest guns available at Tier VI — allowing her to overmatch the thinner plating of most ships at tier — partially making up for the deficiency in raw penetrating power her early shells have. However, these shells will still struggle against battleship belt armor at range, so captains will have to aim for the superstructure or use HE against them. Mutsu’s other standout characteristic is her torpedo tubes. She carries two single launchers per side, firing a 7km range torpedo that does 10,833 dmg and has a 21 second reload. However, these torpedo mounts are very fragile and have narrow firing arcs, meaning Mutsu must turn broadside in order to use them, greatly limiting their effectiveness. Mutsu’s other large disadvantage is that she has extremely lackluster anti-aircraft armament, so don't expect to shoot down many planes with her.

LittleWhiteMouse's Premium Ship Review: Mutsu from the NA forums


  • Has two (2) torpedo launchers on each side.
  • Very good main battery firing range.
  • Second fastest Tier VI battleship.
  • Highest maximum AP and HE shell damage of its tier.
  • Most hit points out of all Tier VI battleships.
  • Decent dispersion, gets better with upgrades.


  • Torpedoes have narrow firing arc and low speed.
  • Weak armor; does not have the 289mm thick citadel armor that Nagato has in some places.
  • Virtually non-existent anti-aircraft suite.
  • Large detectability range.
  • No torpedo bulge at all like her sibling Nagato.


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

Optimal Configuration


The recommended upgrades for Mutsu are as follows:

Slot 1 provides players with the first option in choosing a desired role. Typically, Main Armaments Modification 1 is recommended to provide additional survivability to the main battery, but players who desire to specialize in the secondary armament should choose Auxiliary Armaments Modification 1 (+100% to secondary battery survivability. / +100% to AA mounts survivability.).

Slot 3 allows for further specialization. Generally, Aiming Systems Modification 1 is recommended because it reduces shell dispersion of the main and secondary armaments. Players wishing to specialize for secondaries should mount Secondary Battery Modification 2 (+20% to secondary battery maximum firing range. /    -20% to maximum dispersion of secondary battery shells.).

Commander Skills


Mutsu has access to the following consumables: Damage Control Party, Repair Party, and Spotting Aircraft. Premium versions of Damage Control Party and Repair Party are recommended for captains willing to spend the credits (or doubloons).


As a premium ship, Mutsu 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.
