Nürnberg — German Tier VI cruiser.

The ship was developed from the Königsberg-class cruisers. In contrast to her predecessors, she had larger dimensions and featured reinforced turret armor. Moreover, she retained the main battery guns with their high performance characteristics. The cruiser's AA defense comprised numerous anti-aircraft guns.

Player Opinion

Performance

Touted as a rival to the likes of Budyonny and Dallas at Tier VI, Nürnberg is a moderate upgrade from her predecessor, Königsberg.

Players familiar with Königsberg will adapt to Nürnberg quickly while noting several improvements. For starters, her guns reload faster, dropping from 7.5 seconds to 6 seconds between salvos. She is laid out almost identically, though Nürnberg’s stern turrets rests along the ship's centerline as opposed to Königsberg’s offset stern turrets. She retains the same superlative range — 16.5 km — as well as the torpedo layout of Königsberg, with two triple-tube launchers on each side of the ship.

Nürnberg’s strengths are many, but so are her weaknesses. While captains may be used to it by the time they reach Nürnberg, her turret layout is still somewhat awkward and she lacks significant armor. Battleships can citadel her with ease at virtually all angles, and enemy heavy cruisers — such as Aoba or Molotov — salivate at the thought of catching a Nürnberg broadside with AP rounds in their barrels. Playing her well requires careful positioning and extremely good situational awareness; Nürnberg is not a ship that one can put into a risky situation and live to fight another day. She'll reward cautious play, but will fold quickly under concentrated enemy fire.

Pros:

  • Same impressive range as her predecessor.
  • Good gun handling and shell speed, coupled with the German version of Hydroacoustic Search (While active, detects all enemy ships and torpedoes within the specified radius, without regard of obstacles such as smoke and terrain.), makes her an ideal anti-destroyer ship.
  • Guns reload every 6 seconds, far faster than her peers at Tier VI.
  • Low shell arc and high muzzle velocity.
  • Same surprising AP damage when it punches through.
  • Like Königsberg, the X and Y turrets can rotate 360 degrees, making switching firing sides a snap.
  • Extremely good turning radius with speedy rudder shift time.

Cons:

  • Although the AP damage is high, the penetration is relatively poor
  • Handling feels like a Tier V Königsberg.
  • AA suite, despite being better, will still struggle to shoot down many airplanes unless Defensive AA Fire (While active, the damage per second of large caliber anti-aircraft guns is increased.) is active.
  • Same citadel layout and A-XY turret layout as her predecessor.
  • Still very little armor, making modules vulnerable to incapacitations and devastating citadel hits.
  • Poor AA options since the removal of Hull C

Research

Availability of researchable upgrades for Nürnberg is as follows:

  • Hull: Upgrade to Hull (B) for additional health, a sliver more AA, and a improved rudder shift time. Research of Hull (B) unlocks progression to Yorck.
  • Gun Fire Control System: Upgrade to FKS Typ 6 mod. 2 for an extra 10% range on the main battery.
Hull (B) should be a priority, as Nürnberg needs all the health she can get.

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

The recommended upgrades for Nürnberg are as follows:

Commander Skills

Key skills for Nürnberg commanders include Priority Target, Adrenaline Rush, Demolition Expert, and Concealment Expert.

Consumables

Nürnberg can equip the following consumables:

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 Nürnberg with Type 16 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

New Nürnberg captains should prioritize flags that enhance their experience gains, such as Equal Speed Charlie London (+50% XP earned for the battle.) and Red Dragon (+100% XP earned for the battle. / +100% Commander XP earned for the battle.). Recommended combat flags include 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.), 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.), Sierra Mike (+5% to the ship's maximum speed.), and November Foxtrot (-5% reload time on all consumables.). Captains who have upgraded to Hull (C) should also 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 their AA.
