Huanghe — Pan-Asian promo premium Tier VI cruiser.

Wows_flag_China.png
A British light cruiser (HMS Aurora) intended to carry out close reconnaissance and counter-destroyer missions. In 1948, the ship was transferred to the Republic of China (Taiwan) but defected to the People's Liberation Army Navy (PLAN) a year later, becoming its most powerful combat unit. In the early 1950s, a plan was drawn up for the refurbishment of the cruiser by replacing her weapons and equipment with Soviet-made models.

Huanghe was first released for sale worldwide on 30 November 2017.

Player Opinion

Performance

Huanghe is one of three Tier VI light cruisers that are designed around the Crawling Smoke Generator (Generates a smoke screen that allows the ship to remain undetected at slow speeds.) consumable: the other two being Perth and Mysore. Of these three, Huanghe distinguishes itself with excellent stealth, maneuverability, and anti-aircraft suite. However, the ship's advantages are balanced by her very low survivability and middling damage potential.

Playing Huanghe should be familiar to Perth veterans, as they both have the same creeping smoke screen thanks to the shared Crawling Smoke Generator (Generates a smoke screen that allows the ship to remain undetected at slow speeds.) consumable. When moving at quarter speed (12.5 knots), the Huanghe can remain hidden in the continuously billowing smoke while moving towards or away from critical positions. In combination with her excellent 8.3km max. stealth, 530m turning circle, 950 m/s shell velocity, 4.2km smoke fire penalty, and her Hydroacoustic Search (While active, detects all enemy ships and torpedoes within the specified radius, without regard of obstacles such as smoke and terrain.), the Huanghe is one of the best cap supporting/contesting cruisers at her tier.

These advantages are counterbalanced by the lowest health pool for any cruiser at the tier. With only 3x2 152mm guns in her main battery, she is also somewhat under-gunned for her tier, and her triple torpedo launchers are one less torpedo per broadside than Perth. As with her Commonwealth counterpart, the Huanghe requires a significant investment in special modifications and captain points in order to unlock her full potential.

Pros:

  • Lowest detection radius of all Tier VI cruisers (8.33km fully upgraded).
  • Crawling Smoke Generator (Generates a smoke screen that allows the ship to remain undetected at slow speeds.) consumable allows Huanghe to move at low speeds and take her smoke cloud with her.
  • Powerful HE rounds with excellent shell velocity and fire chance.
  • Quick rudder shift time and destroyer-like turning circle allow her to dodge long range fire more easily than most cruisers.
  • Good mid-range torpedoes with wide firing angles.
  • Best long range anti-aircraft suite (flak clouds and DPS) of any Tier 6 cruiser.
  • No citadel under the forward turrets, allowing Huanghe to fire four guns around a corner while taking only minor damage.
  • Two fully upgraded Huanghes can alternate use of Crawling Smoke Generator (Generates a smoke screen that allows the ship to remain undetected at slow speeds.) to maintain permanent smoke coverage.

Cons:

  • Has the lowest amount of hit points of all Tier VI cruisers.
  • The ship is lightly armored and often takes high damage from enemy armor piercing shells.
  • Main battery firing range among the shortest at her tier with no options for enhancement.
  • 3x2 152mm main battery with mediocre reload struggles to put out damage quickly.
  • Magazine under the forward turrets is unprotected by armor, making Huanghe very vulnerable to detonation.


Research

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

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

The recommended upgrades for Huanghe are as follows:

Huanghe benefits from access to the Special Upgrades that are available through the Arsenal. Captains should prioritize Smoke Generator Modification 1 (Increases the action time of the Smoke Generator, Short-Burst Smoke Generator, and Crawling Smoke Generator consumables, but reduces smoke screen duration.  The effects are not applicable to the Exhaust Smoke Generator consumable.: +30% emission time. / -5% smoke cloud duration.), as it offers a significant upgrade to the Crawling Smoke Generator (Generates a smoke screen that allows the ship to remain undetected at slow speeds.). The Hydroacoustic Search Modification 1 (Increases the action time of the Hydroacoustic Search and Short-Range Hydroacoustic Search consumables.: +20% action time.) is also useful, as it will better align your Hydroacoustic search duration with your upgraded smoke duration.

Commander Skills

Due to her increased stealth and limited damage output, the Huanghe tends to be more of a DD-hunter than a pure damage dealer (unlike the Perth that can be either). The main consideration is whether the player wishes to invest in the AA-suite in order to protect themselves and allies.

For the DD-hunting role, taking Concealment Expert and Radio Position Finder are critical, supplemented by quality of life skills such as Superintendent, Vigilance, Expert Marksman, Expert Loader. These could be rounded off by skills that increase survivability while detected: Survivability Expert, Last Stand, Preventative Maintenance, and/or Incoming Fire Alert.

For a more damage-oriented build, Demolition Expert, Inertial Fuse for High Explosive, and Adrenalin Rush are core skills to chose. Jack of All Trades combined with a November Foxtrot signal (-5% reload time on all consumables.) will reduce the timers on her crucial consumable cooldowns.

For an AA-oriented build (recommended only if regular teamplay with DDs is anticipated), selecting Basic Firing Training, Advanced Firing Training and mounting (+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.) will be necessary.


Consumables

Huanghe can equip the following consumables:

Huanghe's Crawling Smoke Generator (Generates a smoke screen that allows the ship to remain undetected at slow speeds.) is the same as Perth's in terms of performance. Torpedo Reload Booster (When used, torpedo reload time is significantly reduced.) is not recommended due to the lack of torpedoes the ship has, thus leaving Hydroacoustic Search (While active, detects all enemy ships and torpedoes within the specified radius, without regard of obstacles such as smoke and terrain.) as the only preferable option for Slot 2.

Camouflage

As a premium ship, Huanghe comes included with Type 10 camouflage that lowers her detection radius, reduces the accuracy of incoming shells, and increases the amount of experience she earns.

Signals

X-Ray Papa Unaone and November Foxtrot (-5% reload time on all consumables.) are the most important signal flags that Huanghe can equip, followed by Sierra Mike (+5% to the ship's maximum speed.) and the flags that increase her HE shell fire chance: India X-Ray (+1% chance of causing a fire for bombs and shells with a caliber above 160mm. / +0.5% chance of causing a fire for bombs and shells with a caliber below 160mm. / +5% to the risk of your ship's magazine detonating.) and Victor Lima (+1% chance of causing a fire for bombs and shells with a caliber above 160mm / +0.5% chance of causing a fire for bombs and shells with a caliber below 160mm. / +4% chance of causing flooding.). When equipping India X-Ray, adding a Juliet Charlie (-100% to the risk of your ship's magazine detonating.) to eliminate the bonus chance of detonation is a good idea. (+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.) will be helpful in augmenting the already powerful AA-suite; Sierra Bravo may also be useful to boost Hydroacoustic Search (While active, detects all enemy ships and torpedoes within the specified radius, without regard of obstacles such as smoke and terrain.) duration.

As Huanghe is a premium ship, various economic and special signal flags can be mounted to further boost the economic and experience gains of the ship. However, as a mid-tier premium Huanghe does not make as much profit compared to a higher tier premium, so the economic and special signal flags may be saved for a higher tiered ship.

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