Wyoming — American Tier IV battleship.

A typical battleship of the first generation in the U.S. Navy. The ship was very well-balanced for her time. In contrast to her predecessors, the ship was armed with numerous main battery guns with a longer firing range. Turbine-driven propulsion could produce quite a decent speed for a dreadnought.

Player Opinion

Performance

After upgrading from South Carolina, players will be happy to play Wyoming at Tier IV. She is a worthy upgrade, being well-armored and having decent firepower. Additionally, Wyoming benefits from protected matchmaking. Unless a player joins a division with a Tier V ship, the highest tier game Wyoming will encounter is Tier V. This benefits Wyoming, as she will never see the powerful ships at Tier VI. Wyoming is a well armored dreadnought, making her one of the toughest ships in the lower tiers. This armor allows her to brawl with Tier V battleships, but care should still be taken to avoid showing full broadside to battleships when possible. Wyoming is armed with six turrets, each with two guns. These guns provide her with a devastating broadside — but only if she connects with her target.

Counteracting the armor and firepower, Wyoming’s turrets are very slow turning, so it is extremely important to try to plan maneuvers in advance and try to avoid having to complete a 180-degree turret rotation in the heat of battle. This is doubly important when her maneuverability is considered. Wyoming is very slow, and it may take her an entire game to get across the map. As the battle begins, it is hugely important to try to read the map and see which way the enemy is going. However, Wyoming has excellent gun range for a Tier IV battleship, which allows her to hit distant targets if she finds herself out of position. At close range, Wyoming has a secondary battery that can tear apart destroyers. This is useful if a destroyer manages to sneak up on her. Overall, Wyoming is a good ship that is capable of devastating cruisers as well as battleships. To be used to her maximum potential, it is essential to read the map and plan tactical maneuvers and engagements prior to carrying them out. Players will experience the most success when supported by friendly destroyers and cruisers.

Pros:

  • Devastating broadside allows Wyoming to punish broadside cruisers and battleships and has excellent main battery firing range (for her tier) when fully upgraded.
  • Armor piercing (AP) shells can penetrate the armor and citadel of any ship she can encounter.
  • Capable of destroying enemy destroyers that wander too close.
  • Well armored for her tier; armor belt is capable of repelling small caliber shells.
  • With a short turning radius, Wyoming is capable of dodging torpedoes surprisingly well.
  • Decent anti-aircraft suite. When fully upgraded, Wyoming has a fighting chance against enemy aircraft.

Cons:

  • Painfully slow; most cruisers and destroyers are capable of outrunning Wyoming.
  • Weak against torpedoes, care should be taken to try to avoid taking hits when possible.
  • Turret 3 requires the ship to go broadside to fire.
  • Very slow turret traverse speed.
  • 2x front/4x rear turret configuration is a curveball to players fresh off the South Carolina

    In replay files, Wyoming is named Arkansas.

Research

This is a suggested research path:

  1. Propulsion Mod. 2
  2. Wyoming (B) Hull
  3. Mk4 Gun Fire Control System Mod. 2


Players should prioritize the propulsion upgrade first to improve her top speed. Afterwards, the hull upgrade is necessary to further improve her maneuverability (by reducing rudder shift time), increase main battery turret rotation, and install anti-aircraft armaments, which will be important against the Tier IV carriers. Finally, the range upgrade should be researched and mounted to provide Wyoming with excellent firing range.

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

The recommended upgrades for Wyoming are as follows:

Commander Skills

Consumables

Wyoming can equip the following consumables:


Premium versions of the consumables will greatly increase the player's survivability, but the costs of the consumables will usually result in a net loss of credits for the player due to the low-credit earning at this tier.

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.
