New Mexico — American Tier VI battleship.

The ship belonged to the generation of conventional battleships in the U.S. Navy. The main battery guns were concentrated in the ship's front and aft ends and were placed in superfiring turrets, which would soon become the standard. The battleship was armored according to the "all or nothing" concept, with the citadel being reliably protected and located in the center of the hull.

Player Opinion

Performance

New Mexico is the very definition of the "US Standard Battleship" type. Slow and heavily armored, New Mexico has the advantage of possessing twelve rifles for her main battery - a feature only matched by Fuso until Tier X. New Mexico is exceedingly proficient at short range combat, but requires foresight and planning because of her slow speed. Players are well advised to be careful when positioning themselves as New Mexico can easily be caught overextended.

Pros:

  • Good shell velocity.
  • Very well-armored.
  • Good main battery firing angles.
  • Exceptional torpedo protection.
  • Respectable anti-aircraft protection for Tier VI.
  • Tight turning radius for a battleship.
  • The main battery has twelve barrels.
  • Good concealment for a battleship.

Cons:

  • Poor turret traverse.
  • Poor main battery accuracy.
  • Slow main battery reload.
  • Weak secondary armament.
  • Slow speed and acceleration.
  • Large superstructure.

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

Commander Skills

Because US battleships tend to have excellent anti-aircraft suites and poor secondary batteries, captain skills which increase the defensive abilities of the ship are recommended.

Consumables

New Mexico can equip the following consumables:

Players should consider using premium consumables in the following order of priority: Damage Control Party (When activated, instantly repairs fires, floods, and incapacitations, and prevents more for the duration.), Repair Party (While active, restores a fixed percentage of a ship's hit points each second.), and Spotting Aircraft (While active, a spotter plane circles the ship providing enhanced main battery firing range.).

Camouflage

Type 1, 2, or 5 camouflage can be equipped for credits; Types 2 or 5 are recommended at a minimum to reduce the accuracy of incoming shells.

Players who wish to spend doubloons can equip New Mexico with Type 16 camouflage which reduces service costs, lowers her detection radius, reduces the accuracy of incoming shells, and increases the amount of experience she earns.

Alternatively, the 2018 New Year raid campaign provided captains with the Snowy camouflage with the same bonuses as the premium.

Signals

Economic signals are left to the discretion of the player. The following recommendations are for combat signals only.
