Player Opinion

Performance

Warning. The data presented in the AA Defense sidebar section may be incorrect.

A Tier VII Canadian battleship based on HMS Monarch with a powerful healing consumable. She is very short ranged with a slow reload time on her main battery guns. However, she has good handling and concealment characteristics.

Yukon is a damage-sponge. She doesn't so much tank incoming fire as absorb it. Her armor layout is poorly designed for resisting damage. Just about every attack thrown her way will take off big chunks from her hit point pool. However, between her good concealment and rudder shift time, Yukon is fairly apt at hiding and dodging. Furthermore, her Specialized Repair Team is monstrous. Should she be allowed to disengage and heal, she can keep coming back again and again. It is only damage done to her citadel, be it from bombs, torpedoes, or shells that slows Yukon down.

The challenge with playing this ship is dealing with her painful lack of reach. Yukon has to get close. Though opening fire at such short-ranges optimizes the performance of her AP shells, she often finds herself as the easiest (if not the closest) target for the Red Team. Fighting in these kind of situations tends to go poorly for Yukon if she cannot cripple her opponent with her opening salvo. She does not have the armor or the rate of fire to come out the better in such trades. The best practice is to perform hit and run tactics, putting out a few salvos and then going dark, pulling back to heal, recover, and reposition.

Pros:

  • Gun caliber is enough for AP shells to overmatch 26mm plating
  • AP shells have short fuse timers which reduce chances of overpenetration
  • Decent AA suite, though short-ranged
  • Excellent concealment for a battleship
  • Incredibly quick rudder shift for a battleship
  • Has access to Specialized Repair Teams (While active, restores a percentage of the ship's health points each second.), can restore large amounts of hitpoints per charge

Cons:

  • Second worst main battery firing range in her tier spread
  • Poor main battery traverse speed and firing arcs
  • Slower than average main battery reload speed
  • Lacks improved HE penetration compared to UK "sister" Monarch
  • Poor armor protection, most of the ship is covered in 26mm common plating
  • Large and exposed citadel block which rises well above the waterline
  • Incredibly vulnerable to HE penetrations and AP overmatch

Research

As a premium ship, Yukon has no module upgrade to research.

Optimal Configuration

Yukon benefits most from survivability upgrades. Like most battleships, look to improve the efficiency of her fire resistance.

Upgrades

The recommended upgrades for Yukon:

Commander Skills

It's imperative to focus upon skills that improve Yukon's concealment and healing efficiency. A basic battleship survivability (tank) build works best.

For the first 10 points, it's "pick'em" between Gun Feeder and Emergency Repair Specialist at Tier 1. Then Priority Target gets the nod over Grease the Gears if you don't have the Main Battery Modification 2 (Increases the traverse speed of the main turrets: +15% to main battery traverse speed.) upgrade. At Tier 3, Basics of Survivability or Adrenaline Rush. At the four-point tier, where an Elite Commander will want all three 3-star skills, take Concealment Expert first.

Consumables

Yukon can equip:

Camouflage

Yukon comes with Type 10 camouflage that lowers her detection radius, reduces the accuracy of incoming shells, reduces her service cost, and increases the amount of experience she earns. She also has access to the Maple Leaf camo, similar to that found on HMCS Haida that provides identical bonuses.

Signals

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