Player Opinion


Pros:

  • Anchorage is equipped with a main battery of 12 8inch (203mm) guns. Similar to the tier 9 Buffalo
  • Unlike most U.S cruisers, she does have torpedoes, with a 10km range.
  • Anchorage, unlike all other U.S cruisers (exception of Flint), and most other heavy cruisers, she has access to a long lasting Smoke Generator (While active, generates a smoke screen that blocks line-of-sight for both enemies and teammates.) consumable.
  • Like all other tier 8 U.S heavy cruisers. She has 27mm plating, allowing her to bounce 15 inch gun shells.
  • Unlike most cruisers she has access to Spotting Aircraft (While active, a spotter plane circles the ship enhancing main battery firing range.) consumable. Allowing her to engage further targets.
  • Has access to Hydroacoustic Search (While active, detects all enemy ships and torpedoes within the specified radius, without regard of obstacles such as smoke and terrain.)
  • This ship plays somewhat like a British heavy cruiser, albeit with more armor and a smoke screen.

Cons:

  • Unlike other high tiered U.S heavy cruisers she does not have super heavy shells.
  • Unlike most U.S cruisers she doesn't have access to Defensive AA Fire (While active, the damage per second of large caliber anti-aircraft guns is increased.) consumable.
  • Anchorage, like many U.S heavy cruisers, she has a short range.
  • Unlike most U.S cruisers, her Anti-Air is lackluster.
  • Anchorage, doesn't have access to Surveillance Radar (While active, detects all enemy ships within the specified radius, disregarding obstacles such as smoke and terrain.) consumable, Unlike her tier 8 sister Baltimore

Research

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

Anchorage can equip the following consumables:

Camouflage

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