[[Ship:|]] — N/A promo premium Tier  N/A.

A Battleship of the "Fleet of Fog". Modeled after the Imperial Japanese Navy's 2nd Kongo-class battleship, Hiei. Equipped with the "Mirroring System" bestowed by Musashi, she acts as the new flagship of the "First Oriental Fleet" after Kongō’s departure. Repurposing the Fleet as the "Student Council of the Fog", she maintains strict order within the Fleet of Fog as the "Student Council President". This warship has been specially designed for World of Warships, and is modeled after Hiei as she appears in "ARPEGGIO OF BLUE STEEL -ARS NOVA- DC".

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

As this ship is basically a copy of the tech tree Kongo, the following recommended upgrades are the same:

Slot 1 provides players with the first option in choosing a desired role. Typically, Main Armaments Modification 1 is recommended to provide additional survivability to the main battery, but players who desire to specialize in the secondary or anti-aircraft armament should choose Auxiliary Armaments Modification 1 (Increases survivability of the secondary battery and AA mounts: +100% survivability to each.).

Slot 3 allows for further specialization. Generally, Aiming Systems Modification 1 is recommended because it reduces shell dispersion of the main and secondary armaments. To increase the effectiveness of the anti-aircraft armament, mount AA Guns Modification 1 (Improves AA efficiency: +20% reduction in the preparation time of the priority AA sector.). Players wishing to specialize for secondaries should mount Secondary Battery Modification 1 (Extends firing range and increases firing accuracy of the secondary battery: +20% secondary battery firing range. / -20% secondary battery dispersion.).

However, as it is a copy, players can experiment with different upgrade combinations.

Commander Skills

As this ship is basically a copy of the tech tree Kongo, the following recommended commander skills for maximum effectiveness are the same. However, as it is a copy, players can experiment with different commander skill builds.

Consumables

Just like the tech tree Kongo, players have access to the following consumables on ARP Hiei:

Again, premium Damage Control Party II and Repair Party II are recommended to maximize survivability.

Camouflage

As this is an ARP ship, ARP Hiei cannot mount camouflage.

Signals

As this ship is basically a copy of the tech tree Kongo, the following recommended signals for maximum effectiveness are the same. However, as it is a copy, players can experiment with different signals combinations.
