Battle Levels

Repulse B — British special premium Tier VI battleship.

The second ship of the Renown class—HMS Repulse—was laid down in 1915 and entered service in 1916. She took part in the second Battle of Heligoland Bight. Between 1923 and 1924, the ship participated in the round-the-world Empire Cruise and protected international shipping routes during the Spanish Civil War. At the beginning of World War II, she participated in the hunt for Bismarck and the Norwegian campaign. In 1941, the ship joined Force Z, which was supposed to curb Japanese aggression in the Far East. On December 10, 1941, Repulse was sunk by Japanese aircraft in the South China Sea.

Repulse B was first released for sale on 3 November 2023 in Update 12.9.

Repulse B, or Repulse Black, is a clone of Repulse with an attractive black skin.

Originally laid down as an improved Revenge-class battleship, the Royal Navy suspended construction on Repulse B and her sister Renown when it was thought that they wouldn't be completed in time to participate in the First World War. After the success of battlecruisers at the battle of the Falkland Islands, construction restarted, though Repulse B would see little service in the war However, between the wars, she received two extensive refits to increase her armament, armor and torpedo protection. In World War Two Repulse B participated in unsuccessful searches for Gneisenau, and Scharnhorst, before her redeployment to the Pacific with the Prince of Wales as part of Force Z. On December 10th, 1941, both capital ships were sunk by Japanese torpedo bombers when attempting to intercept Japanese landings in Malaya.

The Ship

Repulse B drastically differs from her nation's Tier VI battleship counterparts. Despite losing a twin 381mm turret compared to Warspite and Queen Elizabeth, she makes up for it with battlecruiser dispersion, making Repulse B the most accurate battleship at Tier VI. As a battlecruiser, Repulse B trades the heavier armor seen on Warspite and Queen Elizabeth for a quick top speed of 31.7 knots, faster than all other battleships in her tier.


Repulse B’s bow and stern protection is only 16mm compared to most other Tier VI battleships that have 26mm bow and stern plating. This allows every ship with a gun caliber of 228mm or higher to overmatch her bow and stern. The 26mm torpedo protection reaches just above the waterline, allowing well aimed shots along the waterline to penetrate the 229mm plated casemate armor belt protecting the citadel. The main armor belt is covered in 152mm plating with a lighter 38mm belt up to the deck, protecting the citadel well from mid and small caliber salvos. Repulse B has a large superstructure that is covered in 16mm plating, allowing for smaller caliber shells to penetrate and deal damage.


Repulse B is armed with three twin 381mm turrets with two mounted forward, and one aft. While being the same guns found on Warspite and Queen Elizabeth, Repulse B has the same dispersion formula found on most other battlecruisers, but benefits from tighter dispersion with a maximum dispersion of 149m and sigma of 2.0. She also reloads three seconds faster than her cousins at 25 seconds. Pairing this excellent accuracy and reload with a respectable range of 19.8km, Repulse B can comfortably fight at any range and consistently deal damage.


Repulse B does not have the best AA armament when it comes to Tier VI battleships. Hers is the shortest range at only 4km, with long-range continuous damage of only 28 and one weak flak burst.. The mid range AA suite has a firing range of 2.5km and continuous damage of 140. The short range AA batteries have a maximum range of 2km and continuous damage of 106. Players should stick with allies to have a better chance at fending off incoming carrier attacks.


Repulse B should use her high speed to get to a flank early in the battle and provide crossfire onto enemy cruisers and battleships. Due to the lack of armor, engaging at mid to long range and using her accurate salvoes to focus broadside enemies. If the ship becomes the target of focus fire, Repulse B can use her stealthy concealment of 12.57km with Concealment Expert and Engine BoostWhile active, increases a ship's speed by a fixed percentage. to quickly relocate to a different position. She should stick with a supporting cruiser to help fend off attacks from enemy aircraft and destroyers. Overall, Repulse B is a great support and flanking battlecruiser that can quickly redeploy to other parts of the map to support pushes or retreats.


  • Fastest battleship at Tier VI.
  • Accurate main battery guns with battlecruiser dispersion capable of overmatch.
  • Access to Engine BoostWhile active, increases a ship's speed by a fixed percentage. and Spotting AircraftWhile active, a spotter plane circles the ship enhancing main battery firing range. consumables.
