Player Opinion

Performance

AL Montpelier is essentially a clone of Tier VIII American tech tree cruiser Cleveland, with only a couple of minor changes.

For starters, AL Montpelier has a few hundred more hit points than Cleveland; six hundred more, to be precise. It's a small buff that most players won't notice. Hidden from view, her guns have been made more accurate than those of her tech tree sister by improving her sigma value from 2.0 to 2.15, meaning that shells will cluster more closely together towards the center of her dispersion ellipse. Lastly, as compensation for the improved accuracy of her guns, she reloads half a second slower than Cleveland.

In all other respects, AL Montpelier is a Cleveland. Her AA battery, concealment, top speed, turning radius, and armor layout are all the same. AL Montpelier is a solid support ship, but captains will have to stay frosty and play smart to avoid the nastier battleship opponents that she will face within her tier bracket.

Pros:

  • Citadel is deceptively difficult to penetrate properly from the sides, and can be over-penetrated easily.
  • Solid main battery guns. Excellent rate of fire, firing range, shell penetration, and fire chance for HE shells.
  • Favorable firing angles allow all four turrets to be used without showing excessive broadside.
  • High shell arcs for lobbing over islands.
  • Powerful anti-aircraft suite; can easily shoot down enemy strike craft without Defensive AA Fire (While active, the damage per second of large caliber anti-aircraft guns is increased.).
  • Decent maneuverability.

Cons:

  • Citadel is vulnerable to plunging fire.
  • Light armor scheme means that AL Montpelier takes damage from incoming fire of nearly all calibers.
  • Slow shell velocity and high arc; allows enemies time to maneuver and evade incoming fire.
  • Medium-range anti-aircraft armament can be very easily destroyed by HE shells.
  • No torpedoes.

Research

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

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

The recommended upgrades for AL Montpelier are as follows:

Anti-Aircraft Build: A popular build for this ship, captains focusing on boosting AL Montpelier’s AA will opt for Auxiliary Armaments Modification 1 (+100% to secondary battery survivability. / +100% to AA mounts survivability.) for Slot 1 to increase the anti-aircraft armament durability and AA Guns Modification 1 (+2 to number of explosions produced by salvos from medium- and long-range AA defenses.) for Slot 3 to increase her medium- and long-range AA power. Although her AA is a powerful enough deterrent, the usefulness of this investment depends on whether or not there is a carrier in the game. This build is great in a division with a Tier VIII carrier to ensure that AL Montpelier will have a purpose for her AA suite.

Generalist Build: Captains focusing on making AL Montpelier have better main batteries will opt for Main Armaments Modification 1 (-20% to the risk of main battery becoming incapacitated. / +50% to main battery survivability. / -20% to main battery repair time. / -20% to the risk of torpedo tubes becoming incapacitated. / +50% to torpedo tubes survivability. / -20% to torpedo tubes repair time.) for Slot 1 and 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.) for the Slot 3 to increase her accuracy.

Commander Skills

The following information is provided for players who wish to create a permanent captain for the ship. Those players who are retraining captains or using the ship to gain extra experience for a captain should consult the page relevant to the ship to which the captain will be assigned.

Consumables

AL Montpelier can equip the following consumables:

Camouflage

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

Signals

AL Montpelier captains should mount standard signal flags to improve the ship's performance in battle. Sierra Mike (+5% to the ship's maximum speed.) flags are highly recommended to increase the ship's top speed. November Foxtrot (-5% reload time on all consumables.) and India Yankee (-20% to fire duration.) flags should be mounted to improve the ship's survivability. November Echo Setteseven (+5% continuous damage by all AA guns, +5% damage per second within the explosion radius of shells fired from medium- and long-range AA defenses.) flags can also be mounted to increase the ship's anti-aircraft damage. Lastly, economic and special signal flags can be mounted to increase the ship's economic gains per battle.
