Erich Loewenhardt — German promo premium Tier VI aircraft сarrier.

An earlier draft design for aircraft carrier "A" (Flugzeugträger A), which preceded the construction of Graf Zeppelin. Had a different composition of AA capabilities, a higher running speed, and different hull architecture.

Erich Loewenhardt was released on 4 August 2020.

Player Opinion

Performance

The first thing that would catch the player's eye would be the massive 12,200 alpha for the HE bombs, and when compared to even Midway's HE bombs, Erich Loewenhardt's HE bombs outperform Midway's in damage, penetration and fire chance. While the max damage may seem very impressive, however it must be kept in mind that it is a HE bomb. To achieve the stated Alpha Damage, the bomb will have to explode inside the citadel of a ship, which at Tier VI (if not in operations), is very rare, and the bombs will mostly be doing about 2-4k damage per hit. The fire chance of her bombs are superb, so not only will they do pretty decent damage for HE bombs at Tier VI, they'll be able to quickly stack damage via fires.

While Erich Loewenhardt's dive bombers are pretty impressive, her torpedo bombers are pretty disappointingly lackluster. Already lacking in terms of damage per torpedo, they do not have the speed to help make up for it (unlike tech tree German aircraft carriers), so Erich Loewenhardt's torpedo bombers will basically be the last ditch weapon if there are no other alternatives.

Her AP rocket planes, taken from Parseval's stock AP rocket planes, feature very impressive performance for Tier VI, with a good amount of penetration and damage. Against cruisers she would see in her matchmaking spread, the AP rockets are very deadly if they're caught with their broadside open to the rockets.

A very powerful secondary battery is also another distinguishing point of Erich Loewenhardt, having a whopping 4x2 150 mm per side and 5x2 105 mm (2x2 in front of the island and 3x2 behind, in a style similar to Graf Zeppelin's 105 mm mounts), it is the heaviest secondary broadside among Tier VI carriers.

All in all, your main targets should be cruisers (since your AP rocket performance is splendid for Tier VI). The other 2 squadron types should only serve as damage supplements for when there's either no cruisers to hit or when you're waiting for your rocket planes to regenerate.

Pros:

  • Aircraft have good cruising and max speeds, and a decent enough HP pool.
  • AP rockets are the same as Parseval's stock AP rockets (Sprenggranate), but at Tier VI
  • HE bomber reticle is a circle (similar to Graf Zeppelin's AP bombers), which means you can attack from any angle
  • HE bombs instead of AP bombs means you're not limited to striking only certain classes to bring out the full potential of the ordnance
  • Very strong secondary battery array, featuring 4x2 150 mm cannons on each side and 5x2 105 mm mounted on the deck in front and behind the superstructure
  • Strong armor scheme that makes Erich Loewenhardt very durable against AP fire

Cons:

  • Only 6 plane per squadron and 9 on deck (for each type), which means heavy losses will be felt
  • Very poor torpedo performance; weak damage, low flooding chance, and very slow speeds, unlike the tech tree versions
  • Dive bomber behavior is very different from other nation's dive bomber behavior, and would require some getting used to
  • Large hull makes Erich Loewenhardt vulnerable to HE fire
  • AP rockets quickly loses their effectiveness against angled targets or by hitting light plating

Research

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

Upgrades

The recommended upgrades for Erich Loewenhardt are as follows:

Commander Skills

Camouflage

As a premium ship, Erich Loewenhardt comes with Type ?? camouflage that lowers her detection radius, reduces the accuracy of incoming shells, reduces her repair costs, and increases the amount of experience she earns.
