Battle Levels

Vermont — American Tier X battleship.

During World War I, in the midst of the dreadnought arms race, designers were given complete carte blanche. Seven battleship designs were proposed with maximum capabilities and performance. There was only one restriction—the battleships had to be able to pass through the Panama Canal. The initial design was more conservative compared to the others. The battleship carried twelve large-caliber guns placed in four turrets, was reasonably fast, and had very strong armor.

Vermont was first made available in Early Access with Update 0.9.9. With Update 0.9.11 on 2 Dec 2020, she became a permanent tech tree ship.

As the capstone of the American standard battleship line, Tier X Vermont inherits many traits from her predecessor Minnesota. Captains familiar with Minnesota will recognize Vermont’s slow speed, long shell reload, and large salvo weight. However, much like the upgrade from Kansas to Minnesota, Vermont is a considerable upgrade upon her predecessor in the areas of both main battery firepower and armor.


While Vermont retains the standard 32mm bow and stern plating and the 38mm midsection plating commonly found on high tier battleships, her deck armor has been upgraded to 51mm. However, unlike the underwater citadel of her predecessors, her citadel protrudes above the water. Thus, captains will observe that as compared to Minnesota, Vermont is more resistance to HE shells but more vulnerable to large caliber AP shells.

To protect her from incoming torpedos, Vermont has a great torpedo belt, capable of reducing damage from torpedoes by 40%.

Vermont mounts 12 rifles in four triple turrets. These guns load 457mm shells, allowing them to overmatch the 30mm of armor plating commonly found on Tier X cruisers, making them particularly deadly against cruisers. In addition, her AP shells have excellent penetration — able to citadel enemy battleships even at long range.

While Vermont throws the second highest broadside alpha strike potential, she has the longest reload out of all Tier X battleships at 40 seconds. Patience and target selection are the key to success with Vermont. A wise captain might hold his fire for a more appealing target rather than always firing off as soon as reloaded. One other common strategy is to fire 2 turrets every 20 seconds rather than 4 every 40 seconds in order to make it more difficult for enemy ships to dodge, and to be prepared for that sudden target of opportunity.

Vermont’s secondary battery consists of eight dual 127mm cannons that reload in 6 seconds. Their accuracy is average for a Tier X battleship, but the HE penetration and firing range are both poor. For this reason, a secondary build is not advised.

Vermont’s surface detectability range is average for a Tier X battleship. However, she is by far the slowest battleship at her tier, with a maximum speed of 23 knots.[1] This makes it difficult for her to disengage from unfavorable engagements. Conversely, it gives the captain time to assess the situation before becoming committed. Captains can use this time to be extra careful and plan the route in advance so as not to be caught in a bad position during the course of the battle.

The anti-aircraft suite of Vermont can be characterized as mediocre in all respects, having a range of 5.8km, six flak bursts, and a mid range dps of 534. However, she gets access to Defensive AA FireWhile active, the damage per second of large caliber anti-aircraft guns is increased., which will give enemy carriers second thoughts about striking her. With a rudder shift of 19.1 seconds and a turning circle of 850 meters, Vermont is one of the most maneuverable Tier X battleships. She can use this maneuverability to make up for her exposed citadel by dodging incoming battleship salvos.

Game Play

Vermont can be best described as a ship of extremes. On one hand, she has arguably the most lethal main battery guns at Tier X. On the other hand, she is the slowest tier X battleship by a large margin. Therefore, she favors a central battleship play style. This position gives her the ability to create cross fires with friendly battleships on the flanks. While other battleships may be able to rotate from their initial flank during the mid game, Vermont is not fast enough to do so; positioning centrally gives her a head start to move to whichever flank she will have more impact in during the late game.

Vermont is a challenging battleship to play, and inexperienced battleship captains will have difficulties with her due to the fact that positioning mistakes are punished particularly hard. Once caught in a bad position, it is difficult to disengage and will often result in death. She really shines in the hands of an experienced captain who is able to draw out the full potential from her strengths while compensating for her weaknesses.


  • Large HP pool
  • 51mm central deck armor, enough to shatter low caliber HE shells.
  • 38mm covers the midsection of the hull allowing her to bounce AP shells when angled.
  • Twelve 18 inch guns (457mm), the second heaviest broadside in the game (barely edged out by Cristoforo Colombo).
  • Great main battery dispersion, which can be improved further with Artillery Plotting Room Modification 2 : -11% main battery dispersion..
  • Above average AP penetration, on par with Tier X Yamato.
  • Above average torpedo protection.
  • Tight turning circle.
  • Access to Defensive AA FireWhile active, the damage per second of large caliber anti-aircraft guns is increased..


  • Raised citadel, vulnerable while broadside.
  • Prone to taking large chunks of damage even when angled due to large freeboard.
  • Long main battery reload time of 40 seconds.
  • Slow shell velocity.
  • Slow, with a base speed of 23 knots (26.6 max).


As a Tier X ship, Vermont has no module upgrades to research.

Optimal Configuration

As with her predecessors, builds that emphasize her strengths — main battery and survivability — are preferred. In service of the latter, consider boosting her anti-aircraft artillery.


The recommended upgrades for Vermont are as follows:

Slot 6 Gives players two different options. The recommended option is Artillery Plotting Room Modification 2 : -11% main battery dispersion. to have more accurate main battery guns. However, for captains that would rather have a quicker reload (to compensate for the 40 seconds base reload), they should use Main Battery Modification 3 : -12% main battery loading time. / -13% main battery traverse speed..
