Player Opinion


Warning. The data presented in the AA Defense sidebar section may be incorrect.
For a graphic summary of ships Tiers VIII thru XI see LittleWhiteMouse's "Actual AA DPS".


  • Powerful and long-ranged armament of secondary cannons, effective against destroyers.
  • Thick and sharply angled armor that will reflect or shatter most of the same-tier shells.
  • Decent maneuverability that allows coming closer to the frontline and even capture points when needed.
  • Accurate and fast torpedoes that can reliably hit all but the most nimble of targets.
  • Dive bombers have access to Repair Party.
  • AP rockets, when angled properly, will deliver up to a dozen of citadel penetrations on a cruiser per run.
  • Bombs, if they hit the citadel, deal tremendous damage that is hard to recover from.
  • Aircraft has increased speed and engine boost, making it more effective in scouting and spotting than most other planes of the same tier.


  • All planes are heavily specialized and have mutually exclusive roles, with actual damage numbers varying wildly depending on a number of variables.
  • High-altitude bombers must fly really close to the target in order to hit, being exposed to enemy AA the whole route.
  • Even with Repair active, planes are only tier VIII and will fall quickly to tier X AA fire.
  • Bombers and attack planes are very demanding to the angle of the target, chances to hit the citadel being reduced to near-negligible if the angle is not straight 0 or 180 degrees respectively.
  • AP rockets cannot penetrate most tier X cruisers.
  • AP rockets are ineffective against both destroyers and battleships.
  • Torpedoes have very low damage and chance to flood, making them nearly powerless against classes other than destroyers and light cruisers.
  • Dive bomb reticle is rather wide and bombs drop with a significant delay, making them effective mostly against battleships and some heavy/superheavy cruisers.
  • No reliable ways to ignite fires or break modules of the enemy ships.
  • Lower base durability compared to other carriers of the same tier.

Optimal Configuration


The recommended upgrades for August von Parseval are as follows:

Upgrade Slot 5 offers players A choice between Flight Control Modification 1 and Squadron Consumbales Modification 1, which adds 50% to the length of all consumables. Players wishing to have more responsive fighters and longer heals can take this upgrade in in combination with repair specialist to get 8.2 second heals on their Dive and Torpedo Bombers . As for fighters, with Enhanced reactions, search and destroy and patrol group leader you can extend the fighter duration to more then 1.5 minutes post 0.10.4.

Commander Skills


August von Parseval can equip the following consumables:

Aircraft Carrier:

All aircraft carrier consumables are automatically activated.

Attack Aircraft:

Torpedo Bombers:



As with all other ships, August von Parseval can mount eight signals at a time and has no risk of detonating.

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