Conqueror — British Tier X battleship.

This ship was designed as a battleship with increased firepower on the basis of the British experience in ship construction gained during World War II. The project featured twelve 419 mm main guns, the strongest broadside of any Royal Navy vessel.

Perched atop the British battleship tech tree at Tier X, Conqueror is a worthy successor to Lion.

Like Lion, Conqueror can sneak around the map by taking advantage of her low detectability range, which is among the lowest of all Tier X battleships, even beating that of a Hindenburg fully kitted out for concealment. Her size means that she will take quite a few hits in a gunfight. As such, it is important to position properly and use concealment when faced with overwhelming odds. When this isn’t possible, Conqueror is capable of holding her own. Her high-explosive (HE) shells are extremely powerful and sport a high fire chance. This is useful when engaging multiple ships because she can burn her enemies at range and switch to armor-piercing (AP) for more devastating hits at close range. However, her HE shells are powerful enough that some captains may choose to use it exclusively.

After slugging it out with the other heavy-hitting ships at Tier X, Conqueror can use a special repair party consumable that is capable of restoring tens of thousands of hit points (HP). This allows her to stay in the fight, continuing to punish her enemies, but she is still relatively fragile if she is unable to disengage and heal. Conqueror’s anti-aircraft armament, while powerful for self-defense — especially the mid-range ring — is concentrated into a relatively small number of mounts, meaning it can be disabled fairly quickly. By combining her strengths and finding support from friendly ships, Conqueror becomes one of the most powerful ships in the game.

Pros:

  • Heavy broadside, regardless of ammunition type
  • Excellent main battery range
  • Extremely powerful HE shells with very high damage, penetration and fire chance - effective against all targets, regardless of said targets' positioning
  • AP shells have short fuse timers, leading to less overpenetrations
  • The X and Y (rear) turrets have very good firing angles
  • Access to the Specialized Repair TeamsWhile active, restores a percentage of the ship's health points each second. consumable found on high tier British cruisers, Conqueror can recover massive amounts of health per charge
  • Very powerful mid-range AA defenses, DPS is very high
  • Reasonable handling for a Tier 10 battleship, which can be significantly boosted with the Enhanced Engineering Systems (+13% main turrets traverse speed / –80% steering gears repair time / –40% rudder shift time.) upgrade
  • Joint best concealment among Tier 10 battleships, tied with Thunderer

Cons:

  • Third lowest hitpoint pool among Tier 10 battleships
  • Extensively covered in 32mm armor, very vulnerable to HE penetrations and AP overmatch
  • Main battery dispersion can be frustratingly poor
  • Vulnerable citadel rises high above the waterline
  • Due to their short fuse timers, Conqueror's AP shells might struggle to penetrate heavily armored targets
  • Ineffective secondary armaments, combined with the exposed citadel and weak armor, make Conqueror a very poor brawler
  • Lacks access to either Spotting AircraftWhile active, a spotter plane circles the ship enhancing main battery firing range. or Catapult FighterWhile active, a group of fighter planes circles the ship providing protection by attacking incoming enemy aircraft.

Research

As a Tier X ship, Conqueror doesn't have any upgrades to research.

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

The recommended upgrades for Conqueror are as follows:

Upgrade Slot 5 If available, the Enhanced Engineering Systems (+13% main turrets traverse speed / –80% steering gears repair time / –40% rudder shift time.) upgrade provides a significant rudder shift boost at the expense of some concealment.

Commander Skills

As with most battleships, commander skill points for Conqueror are best invested into skills that will keep her alive.

Consumables

Conqueror equips the following consumables:

Camouflage

Conqueror can mount any expendable camouflage. Players who wish to spend doubloons can equip her with Type 20 permanent 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

Critically important signal flags for Conqueror include: India Delta (+20% to the amount of HP recovered when the Repair Party consumable is used.), India Yankee (-20% to fire duration.), and Juliet Yankee Bissotwo (-20% to flooding duration.). Players are also encouraged to equip November Echo Setteseven (+5% continuous damage by all AA guns, +5% damage per second within the explosion radius of shells fired from medium- and long-range AA defenses.) to maximize Conqueror’s AA bubble and India Bravo Terrathree (-10% to the cost of the ship's post-battle service.) to keep her operational costs more manageable.

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