Córdoba — Pan-American Tier IV cruiser.

In 1933, after the purchase of two Novik-class destroyers from Estonia, the superiority of the Peruvian naval forces was overwhelming, so the Colombian government considered several options to urgently strengthen its navy, including purchasing British ships. If the choice had fallen on British ships, the Colombian fleet could have been strengthened with Danae-class cruisers.

Córdoba was first released on 23 February 2023 as Update 12.1 Prime Gaming reward.

The Ship

Tier IV Córdoba is based on British cruiser Danae and shares many similarities with her sister ship. Despite mounting the same weapons and consumables, there are some important differences between the two ships, with Córdoba's consumables and weapons having slightly different parameters.

Her 540m turning circle is the smallest at Tier IV and a quick 6.4 second rudder shift helps her avoid incoming attacks. However, her 29 knot top speed is slow for a Tier IV cruiser and she can only reliably outpace Karlsruhe at her tier. Córdoba has a good base concealment of 8km without any skills- the lowest of all Tier IV cruisers– which is better than many cruisers even if they are using the Concealment Expert skill. In open waters against other cruisers or battleships, players can expect to spot enemy ships long before they are spotted themselves.

Córdoba mounts a standard cruiser Damage Control PartyWhen activated, instantly repairs fires, floods, and incapacitations, and prevents more for the duration., which is active for 5 seconds and has a 60 second cooldown between uses. She also mounts a Short-Range Hydro-Acoustic SearchWhile active, detects all enemy ships and torpedoes within the specified radius, without regard of obstacles such as smoke and terrain. and a modified Repair PartyWhile active, restores a percentage of the ship's health points each second. consumable. The Hydroacoustic Search is similar to that carried by British destroyers, with a 3km detection range for both torpedoes and enemy ships. It has an action time of 100 seconds and a cooldown time of 180 seconds. Her Repair Party is active for 20 seconds, which is shorter than Danae's but can repair up to 50% of citadel damage received instead of the standard 10%. Córdoba has an extra charge of her Repair Party, although this comes at the cost of a reduced action time and means she can only repair 10% of her maximum health per charge.

Armor & Survivability

Córdoba has 13mm bow and stern plating, which can bounce most cruiser AP she will face but can be overmatched by battleships and heavy cruisers like Hawkins, Furutaka and Exeter. She also has a strip of thicker 38mm armor along her waterline up to her bow and partway towards her stern which can bounce any AP she will face if correctly angled. Her citadel is easily penetrated and rises to the upper deck level along her hull between the bridge and “X” turret. Her vulnerable citadel is further emphasized by her small health pool. 20,500 HP is only higher than Yubari and Iwaki Alpha, although it is somewhat offset by her Repair Party consumable. She must be careful when exposing her side, as large volleys of AP rounds can easily result in a swift return to port


Like Danae, Córdoba carries a main battery of six 152 mm guns in fast turning single centerline mounts. While this may feel underwhelming compared to some other ships, all of her guns can be rapidly brought to bear on a target on either flank. The quick rotation, ability to bring all her guns to bear and a fast reload of 7 seconds allows Córdoba to keep up with her rivals in gunfights. With a maximum range of 12.1km, Córdoba will find herself outranged by many opponents. When shooting at maximum range, her shells lose velocity and tend to float, which can make accurate aiming difficult against agile targets. Córdoba can only fire AP rounds from her main battery. When compared to other nation’s AP, they feature the improved ricochet angles common to the Pan-American cruisers and British light cruisers. Córdoba has standard fuse timers and arming thresholds for her shells, so she will overpenetrate thinly armored targets more often than Danae. Her lack of HE rounds means that Córdoba can struggle to deal damage to battleships, with shots to the superstructure being the only reliable way to damage them. Córdoba carries twelve torpedo tubes, with two triple launchers per side. She can put out a potentially devastating attack, but with only a 6km range she must get close to use these weapons and show a lot of broadside to launch them all. A 53 knot speed- one of the slowest in her tier- means that enemies will have almost 8 seconds notice before impact, and an observant enemy may be able to avoid an attack altogether.


Córdoba has one of the highest AA ratings at Tier IV, with her total DPM almost matching that of De Ruyter. Although her numbers look impressive, the weapons are short ranged, with her mid-range aura only reaching out to 2.5km. Córdoba's AA is only suitable for self defense and she will not be able to fight back against enemy aircraft until they are committed to an attack.

Battle Performance

Her light armor and small hit point pool mean that effective use of positioning, concealment and the Repair Party are key to achieving a good result in battle. Players should pick their targets carefully, as an unexpected duel with a battleship can easily result in crippling damage. Without HE rounds it can feel challenging to deal meaningful damage to enemy ships, a situation which is made worse when Córdoba finds herself fighting against Tier V ships. Her lack of HE and difficulty in damaging angled targets mean that players should focus on using their concealment to reach a flanking position where they can fire into enemy ships’ broadsides.

Córdoba's good agility makes her well suited to operating around island cover where her fragility and lack of range are less of an issue. When forced to operate without cover, players should use their excellent concealment to attack an unsuspecting opponent or break away from an unfavourable fight to repair and reach a more favorable position.
