Celebes — Dutch Tier V cruiser.

The third Java-class cruiser was laid down in Schiedam in June 1917, and she should have become the flagship of the Dutch Navy in the East Indies. It was planned to finalize her construction in 1920; however, due to the economic blockade by England and the lack of resources during wartime, the shipbuilding process had significantly slowed down. The construction of Celebes was never actually finished.

For a graphic summary of ships Tiers VIII thru XI see LittleWhiteMouse's "Actual AA DPS".

Celebes is a Tier V cruiser of the Royal Netherlands Navy and is a peculiar ship at that. The main armaments of this vessel are four 150 mm rifles in double turrets with two fore and two aft, she has no secondary guns to speak of and rather oddly, no torpedoes — continuing the tradition from De Ruyter. Her only other armaments being 8 x 1 40mm Bofors (which can be increased to 8 x 2) and 2 x 2 25mm Bofors with most of the AA being located near the aft of the ship and having a maximum range of 3.5km.

Celebes has the tightest turning radius of all current Tier V cruisers with 580 meters and has a better than average rudder shift time of 7.7 seconds, making her responsive to avoiding danger though it does take her a moment before she starts or stops her turns. She is however one of the slowest cruisers with a maximum speed of 30.6 Knots, leaving her vulnerable to enemy cruisers and destroyers who can gain on her. Her armor is a relatively thin 16 mm above the waterline and she is prone to catching fire even from secondary armaments from cruisers if she gets within their range.

Her design is similar to her predecessor De Ruyter with more health and she has a similar play style: best used at range of roughly 11 km to pepper the enemy with HE, or in support of another friendly vessel at a closer range of up to 5 km. Close range engagements within 3 km or less, are to be avoided due to the relatively thin armor and her guns inability to deal with threats quickly. In the case of enemy destroyers, their torpedoes can quickly send the Celebes back to port.

Both of her modifications should be researched, though they will not change the play style mentioned above as they provide a minor increase to her main guns range and health. You can also grab the modification for Main Battery 2 and the commander skill Grease the Gears to increase her traverse speed by 30%.

Pros:

  • Good main battery performance, hampered by short range.
  • Submerged citadel with unusually thick turtleback scheme for her tier.
  • Access to the Spotting AircraftWhile active, a spotter plane circles the ship enhancing main battery firing range. consumable.
  • Excellent turning circle and decent rudder shift time.
  • 16% Torpedo Damage Reduction

Cons:

  • Only cruiser at Tier V to have no torpedoes.
  • Thicker armor can arm incoming large calibre AP shells more easily.
  • Average AA defense with very few guns concentrated in certain parts of the ship.
  • Athough agile, a large target and among the slowest cruisers at Tier V.

Research

Researchable module upgrades for Celebes:

  • Hull: Upgrade to Hull (B) for more health and improved AA and maneuverability. Research of this module unlocks progression to VI Kijikduin.
  • Gun Fire Control System: Upgrade to SUO Mk 5 Mod. 2 for an extra 10% range on the main battery.
