Arizona — American promo premium Tier VI battleship.

A U.S. Navy battleship with a conventional layout, with two turrets forward and two aft and her armor distributed according to the "all or nothing" concept. She was designed to engage enemy ships at long range. By the outbreak of World War II, the ship received more powerful torpedo protection, which slightly reduced her maneuverability.

USS Arizona was destroyed during the 7 December 1941 sneak attack on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii with heavy loss of life. Her remains can be seen today at the USS Arizona Memorial in Pearl Harbor.

Arizona first went on sale on 4 July 2016 on the NA servers, and on 9 July 2016 on the EU servers.

Player Opinion

Performance

Arizona is a Tier VI American battleship. It is similar to other mid-tier US battleships in that it moves at 21 kts and has decent armor. However, it differs from her tech tree counterpart in that her guns have a higher sigma value, making her salvo patterns tighter, and has worse rudder shift and AA. Her guns are great for shooting cruisers and destroyers, but at only 45 calibers long, their penetration starts to become inadequate as battleships start mounting 16-inch guns (and become armored against them), meaning you may have to switch to HE at longer ranges to deal damage and set fires. Her slower rudder shift isn't really noticeable, but combined with the lack of AA, makes her vulnerable to enemy carriers; it's a good idea to seek out anti-aircraft cruiser escorts if there are carriers in the battle, as well as paying careful attention to where enemy planes are at all times.


Pros:

  • One of the highest hitpoint pools among Tier 6 battleships
  • Heavy broadside of twelve (12) guns in four triple turrets
  • Reasonably good dispersion and sigma, Arizona's salvoes can be devastating
  • Thickly armored citadel block
  • Very tight turn radius for a battleship

Cons:

  • Horrible main battery reload speed and turret traverse speed. Though the reload is better than tier 5 Oklahoma
  • Base main battery range is fairly lacking
  • Mostly covered with 26mm common plating, very vulnerable to HE spam
  • Weak AA suite, very vulnerable to planes
  • Extremely slow, with a top speed of only 21 knots

Research

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

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

The recommended upgrades for Arizona are as follows:

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

Arizona can equip the following consumables:

Camouflage

As a premium ship, Arizona 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

Arizona captains should mount the standard flags to improve the ship's performance in battle. India Delta (+20% to the amount of HP recovered when the Repair Party consumable is used.), November Foxtrot (-5% reload time on all consumables.), and India Yankee (-20% to fire duration.) are all recommended to improve the ship's survivability. Captains may also find Sierra Mike (+5% to the ship's maximum speed.) useful to increase the ship's top speed. Lastly, economic and special signal flags can be mounted to improve the ship’s economic gains per battle.

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