Player Opinion


Pros:

  • Large 305mm main battery armament.
  • Alaska large health pool, good concealment, and sturdy armor can allow her freedom in positioning able to withstand fire from equivalent tier cruisers.
  • Strong AA suite can protect her from most enemy aircraft.
  • Excellent accuracy on her main battery armament aids in her role of a cruiser killer.
  • Has access to Surveillance Radar (While active, detects all enemy ships within the specified radius, disregarding obstacles such as smoke and terrain.)

Cons:

  • Costs 1,000,000Icon_5.png (250,000 more Icon_5.png than previous Tier IX Premium ships), which is roughly 40,000 Doubloons worth of conversion.
  • Increased fire duration (60 seconds) and vulnerability to multiple fires when under HE spam.
  • Large size makes her an easier target for both enemy shells and torpedoes.
  • Armor is not thick enough to let her tank battleship fire in open combat.

Research

As a premium ship, Alaska doesn't have any upgrades to research.

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

The recommended upgrades for Alaska are as follows:

Upgrade Slot 1 provides players with two viable choices. Main Armaments Modification 1 (-20% to the risk of main battery becoming incapacitated. / +50% to main battery survivability. / -20% to main battery repair time. / -20% to the risk of torpedo tubes becoming incapacitated. / +50% to torpedo tubes survivability. / -20% to torpedo tubes repair time.) is generally recommended; however, for anti-aircraft duties, players should take Auxiliary Armaments Modification 1 (Increases survivability of the secondary battery and AA mounts: +100% survivability to each.).

Upgrade Slot 2 allows players to extend the duration of the Surveillance Radar consumable if they have the appropriate special module available in the Arsenal.

Upgrade Slot 4 provides two viable options. For increased survivability, Damage Control System Modification 2 (Accelerates fire extinguishing and recovery from flooding: -15% flooding recovery time. / -15% fire duration.) is a good choice. However, many players utilize Propulsion Modification 1 (Reduces time to full speed: -50% to time for reaching full power. / Increases engine power when the ship starts moving.) to increase the maneuverability of the ship. Choosing between these upgrades will be determined by the intended playstyle.

Consumables

Alaska can equip the following consumables:

Camouflage

As a premium ship, Alaska comes included with Type 10 camouflage that lowers her detection radius, reduces the accuracy of incoming shells, reduces her repair costs, and increases the amount of experience she earns.
