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".


Van Kinsbergen is the fastest of all Tier 1 ships, even outrunning the fast patrol cutter Orlan. Her maneuverability is on par with or better than the other ships she will face at her tier. Use that speed to your advantage. Van Kinsbergen is a good ship to train a new player how to kite effectively. put some distance between you & pursuing vessels, then start zigzagging. Zig to bring your foward guns to bear when they reload, zag to evade return fire.

Using the ship as a brawler can work, but her reload & traverse leave something to be desired in this respect. Resort to kiting in Tier 2 & 3 games.

Pros:

  • Very high firing range
  • Very high speed

Cons:

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

The recommended upgrades are:

Commander Skills

For survivability build, take Last Stand, Demolition Expert, and Survivability Expert.

For more aggressive play, take Grease the Gears, Demolition Expert, and Adrenaline Rush(a must-have). Several different skills may work for Level 4, but use of Inertia Fuse may help you get citadels & magazine detonations.

Consumables

Van Kinsbergen equips the following consumables:

Signals

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