Player Opinion

Performance

Warning. The data presented in the AA Defense sidebar section may be incorrect.
For a graphic summary of ships Tiers VIII thru XI see LittleWhiteMouse's "Actual AA DPS".


Karl von Schönberg is a Tier VI German premium destroyer, and in large parts comparable to the tech tree counterpart Ernst Gaede.

The most striking difference between these two ships is that Karl von Schönberg is more focused on gun performance, while compromising in other fields. As a result, Karl von Schönberg can only equip the stock torpedoes of Ernst Gaede and lacks the Hydroacoustic SearchWhile active, detects all enemy ships and torpedoes within the specified radius, without regard of obstacles such as smoke and terrain. consumable. In exchange however, Karl von Schönberg has faster firing 150mm guns with extended range, allowing for better performance when enagaging in artillery duels.

The rest of the characteristics remain the same, so Karl von Schönberg inherits the high hitpool of Ernst Gaede for the ability to take some hits, as well as decent forward firing angles. Furthermore, she is slow compared to the competition, and just like her counterpart has no real means of defending herself against aircraft beyond seeking cover in her smoke screens.

Karl von Schönberg should be played at some distance, making use of the improved gun performance while not putting itself at risks that the Hydroacoustic Search consumable might help mitigate. Preferred targets are soft skinned cruisers showing their broadside, while efforts should be taken to avoid engaging destroyers in head to head duels. Aircraft carriers are especially dangerous to Karl von Schönberg due to the lack of effective AA armament.

Pros:

  • Faster reload than Ernst Gaede
  • Longer range than Ernst Gaede
  • Improved HE penetration allows for consistent damage against most targets
  • AP can be used to citadel softer skinned cruisers
  • Large HP pool

Cons:
