Myōkō — Japanese Tier VII cruiser.

The first Japanese cruiser built after the Washington Naval Treaty of 1922 came into force. Unlike foreign Treaty Cruisers, Myoko’s armor was good enough to withstand artillery strikes from ships of the same type. One of the features of the project was well-developed torpedo protection. Following a series of upgrades, cruisers of this class got a substantially reinforced AA and torpedo armament.

Player Opinion

Performance

For the most part, Myoko is the first proper heavy cruiser within the Japanese cruiser branch; it brings together all of the lessons captains have learned playing through Furutaka and Aoba. Her impressively low detection range will most certainly aid captains in firefights with other cruisers. Her guns turn and load relatively slowly, and getting into a medium range firefight with a fast firing cruiser — such as Dallas, Shchors, or Fiji — is inadvisable.

Captains should take care to remember that even as a proper heavy cruiser, Myoko is still very much prone to citadel hits, particularly from other cruisers despite having the offensive capability to do the same herself. In this aspect she can be played in two ways: an anti-cruiser and anti-destroyer escort or an aggressive raider forming ad-hoc squadrons with other cruisers or destroyers. She must take special care when engaging battleships, and hold the range open as best as possible.

Pros:

  • Largest amount of hit points for a Tier VII cruiser.
  • Has an impressive broadside of ten 203mm guns.
  • The main battery's high explosive shells have high damage and fire chance, making them effective against most targets Myoko may encounter.
  • The ship carries six torpedo launchers per side. Additionally, her torpedoes have a high top speed and long range, making them effective for area denial or hitting distant targets.
  • High top speed and quick rudder shift time allows the ship to dodge long range fire easily.
  • Thick central deck armor (32 mm): only AP shells > 457 mm never ricochet.

Cons:

  • The ship has a large citadel and will often take large amounts of damage from armor piercing shells.
  • Shorter main battery range than other heavy cruisers at her tier.
  • Sluggish reload time and turret traverse speed.
  • The majority of the main battery turrets are rear-facing.
  • Torpedo mounts are also rear facing and with very narrow firing arcs, requiring the ship to expose her side to make use of them.
  • Thin bow/stern armor (16 mm): all battleship and some cruiser AP shells (>228 mm) never ricochet, penetrated even by destroyer HE shells.
  • Thin turret armor (25 mm).

Research

Captains must research Myoko’s second hull upgrade. Next, captains can choose to upgrade the ship's anti aircraft armament by researching the ship's final hull upgrade, or upgrade the ship's torpedo armament by researching the torpedo module.

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

The recommended upgraded for Myoko are as follows:

Commander Skills

The key skills for Myoko are similar to her predecessor. They include Expert Loader at Level 1, Expert Marksman at Level 2, Demolition Expert at Level 3, and Concealment Expert at Level 4. Captains who use the ship’s torpedoes often may find Torpedo Armament Expertise useful for reducing the reload time of the launchers. Last Stand is recommended to those who often find their engine or rudder incapacitated. Lastly, Basic Firing Training and Advanced Firing Training can be taken to improve upon the ship’s anti-aircraft armament.

Consumables

Myōkō can equip the following consumables:

Captains looking to fill an anti-destroyer role on their team should choose Hydroacoustic Search over Defensive AA Fire.

Camouflage

Type 1, 2, or 5 camouflage can be equipped for credits; Types 2 or 5 are recommended at a minimum to reduce the accuracy of incoming shells.

Players who wish to spend doubloons can equip Myoko with Type 17 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

Myoko captains should mount the standard flags to improve the ship's performance in battle. To improve upon the ship's armaments, 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.), 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.), and Juliet Whiskey Unaone (+15% chance of causing flooding. / +5% to the risk of your ship's magazine detonating.) flags are recommended to increase the fire chance and flooding chances respectively. To improve the ship’s survivability, captains should mount November Foxtrot (-5% reload time on all consumables.) and India Yankee (-20% to fire duration.) flags. Sierra Mike (+5% to the ship's maximum speed.) flags are recommended to increase the ship’s already high top speed. Lastly, economic and special signal flags can be mounted to improve the ship’s economic gains per battle.
