Alaska — American promo premium Tier IX cruiser.
An instance of a special type of ship, somewhere between a cruiser and a battleship. Officially classified as a "large cruiser", she was armed with 305 mm guns, had a high speed, and powerful AA defenses. On the other hand, she had relatively weak protection for her size.

- 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 ()
- Costs 1,000,000 (250,000 more than previous Tier IX Premium ships), which is roughly 40,000 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.
The recommended upgrades for Alaska are as follows:
- Slot 1: Main Armaments Modification 1 ()*
- Slot 2: Surveillance Radar Modification 1 ()*
- Slot 3: Aiming Systems Modification 1 ()
- Slot 4: Damage Control System Modification 2 ()*
- Slot 5: Concealment System Modification 1 ()
- Slot 6: Main Battery Modification 3 ()
Upgrade Slot 1 provides players with two viable choices. Main Armaments Modification 1 () is generally recommended; however, for anti-aircraft duties, players should take Auxiliary Armaments Modification 1 ().
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 () is a good choice. However, many players utilize Propulsion Modification 1 () to increase the maneuverability of the ship. Choosing between these upgrades will be determined by the intended playstyle.
Alaska can equip the following consumables:
- Slot 1: Damage Control Party ()
- Slot 2: Defensive AA Fire () or Hydroacoustic Search ()
- Slot 3: Repair Party ()
- Slot 4: Surveillance Radar ()
CamouflageAs 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.

USS Alaska (CB-1) was the lead ship of the Alaska class of large cruisers which served with the United States Navy during the end of World War II. She was the first of two ships of her class to be completed, followed only by Guam; four other ships were ordered but were not completed before the end of the war. Alaska was the third vessel of the US Navy to be named after what was then the territory of Alaska. She was laid down on 17 December 1941, ten days after the outbreak of war, was launched in August 1943 by the New York Shipbuilding Corporation, in Camden, New Jersey, and was commissioned in June 1944. She was armed with a main battery of nine 12 in (300 mm) guns in three triple turrets and had a top speed of 33 kn (61 km/h; 38 mph).
Due to being commissioned late in the war, Alaska saw relatively limited service. She participated in operations off Iwo Jima and Okinawa in February–July 1945, including providing anti-aircraft defense for various carrier task forces and conducting limited shore bombardment operations. She shot down several Japanese aircraft off Okinawa, including a possible Ohka piloted missile. In July–August 1945 she participated in sweeps for Japanese shipping in the East China and Yellow Seas. After the end of the war, she assisted in the occupation of Korea and transported a contingent of US Army troops back to the United States. She was decommissioned in February 1947 and placed in reserve, where she remained until she was stricken in 1960 and sold for scrapping the following year.
