ARP Kongō — Japanese promo premium Tier V battleship.

A Battleship of the "Fleet of Fog". Modeled after the lead ship of the Imperial Japanese Navy's Kongo-class, Kongo. As the flagship of the "First Oriental Fleet", her Mental Model "Kongō" honors the Admiralty Code above all else. She seeks to eliminate the submarine I-401, who chose to deviate from the Code. This warship has been specially designed for World of Warships, and is modeled after Kongo as she appears in "ARPEGGIO OF BLUE STEEL -ARS NOVA-".

Player Opinion

Performance

While ARP Kongo is a great reproduction of Kongo as she appears in the anime series Arpeggio of Blue Steel -Ars Nova-, she unfortunately (and fortunately for every-ship else) does not come with the overwhelming firepower, blistering speed, submergence ability, matter destroying corrosive warheads, annihilating super-graviton cannon, and impenetrable wave force armor of Kongo in Ars Nova. In other words, in the game she is a standard Kongo, and will have to resort to intelligent tactics like any other warship to gain an upper hand.

As she performs exactly like standard Kongo(C), see the article on Kongo for her performance appraisal.

Pros:

  • All the pros of the standard Kongo.
  • Comes with a number of free Commander Skill points (varies by region and event).
  • Special unique announcer (voiced by her voice actor from the Ars Nova series).
  • Captains can be transferred to and from other ships of IJN.

Cons:

  • All the cons of the standard Kongo.
  • Voice notifications of unique commander are in Japanese. (Not a problem for players who can understand or learn the Japanese however)

Research

ARP Kongo comes fully upgraded, with the same upgrade slots found on Kongo and a captain which may or may not have free Commander Skill points, depending on the event and region.

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

As this ship is basically a copy of the tech tree Kongo, the recommended upgrades are the same:

Slot 1 provides players with the first option in choosing a desired role. Typically, 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. is recommended to provide additional survivability to the main battery, but players who desire to specialize in the secondary or anti-aircraft armament should choose Auxiliary Armaments Modification 1 : +100% survivability to each..

Slot 3 allows for further specialization. Generally, Aiming Systems Modification 1 : -7% main battery dispersion. / +20% torpedo tubes traverse speed. / +5% secondary battery firing range. / -5% secondary battery dispersion. is recommended because it reduces shell dispersion of the main and secondary armaments. To increase the effectiveness of the anti-aircraft armament, mount AA Guns Modification 1 : +20% reduction in the preparation time of the priority AA sector.. Players wishing to specialize for secondaries should mount Secondary Battery Modification 1 : +20% secondary battery firing range. / -20% secondary battery dispersion..

Commander Skills

As this ship is basically a copy of the tech tree Kongo, the following recommended commander skills for maximum effectiveness are the same. However, as it is a copy, players can experiment with different commander skill builds.

Consumables

Just like the tech tree Kongo, players have access to the following consumables on ARP Kongo:

Camouflage

Mounts the ARPEGGIO- ARP Kongo camouflage

Signals

As this ship is basically a copy of the tech tree Kongo, the following recommended signals for maximum effectiveness are the same. However, as it is a copy, players can experiment with different signals combinations.

Note: Use of the Juliet Charlie signal makes detonation impossible.
