Player Opinion

Performance

Prinz Eitel Friedrich, unlike other German battleships, is primarily a medium-range fighter with limited brawling capabilities, as a result of her good secondary armament, poor main guns, and non-turtleback but durable armor.

Where Prinz Eitel Friedrich really shines is with her anti-aircraft armament. Her long-range aura consists of eight twin 105 mm dual purpose mounts, giving her the same long-range DPS as higher-tier ships like Bismarck and Friedrich der Große (Her continuous AA damage is actually higher than said ships!).

Prinz Eitel Friedrich is also quite fast for ships of her tier, allowing her to close to within her ideal engagement range quite quickly. Her good armor and AA will keep her safe while doing so, and captains should have no problems handling her in a brawl. However, brawling should be kept to a minimum due to her non-existent turtleback.

Captains used to the play style of German battleships should be right at home when sailing Prinz Eitel Friedrich.


Pros:

  • Faster than average main battery reload speed
  • Relatively good main battery accuracy
  • Heavy secondary armament with long range
  • Good armor profile for a battlecruiser
  • Decent long range AA defenses
  • Excellent top speed at 28 knots

Cons:

  • Poor main battery traverse speed
  • Poor AP penetration and shell velocity (the latter due to high air drag)
  • Poor main battery HE damage output
  • Lacks a turtleback and can take devastating citadel hits when poorly positioned
  • Extremely weak mid and short range AA defenses
  • Lacks aircraft and/or utility consumables
  • Poor concealment

Research

As a premium ship, Prinz Eitel Friedrich doesn't have any upgrades to research.

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

Prinz Eitel Friedrich Has the standard upgrade slots and choices for a tier VI battleship. A standard battleship build will work well for her, but she also has strong anti-aircraft power for tier 6, so if one enjoys ruining a carrier's day, mounting anti-aircraft modules can also work.

The recommended upgrades for Prinz Eitel Friedrich are as follows:

Commander Skills

Consumables

Prinz Eitel Friedrich can equip the following consumables:

Camouflage

As a premium ship, Prinz Eitel Friedrich comes with Regular permanent camouflage and a set of permanent combat bonuses.

Signals

Prinz Eitel Friedrich captains should mount standard signal flags to improve the ship's performance in battle. Sierra Mike (+5% to the ship's maximum speed.) flags are recommended to increase the ship's top speed. India Delta (+20% to the amount of HP recovered when the Repair Party consumable is used.), India Yankee (-20% to fire duration.) and November Foxtrot (-5% reload time on all consumables.) flags should be mounted to improve the ship's survivability. 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.) flags can also be mounted to increase the ship's anti-aircraft damage. Lastly, economic and special signal flags can be mounted to increase the ship's economic gains per battle.

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