Player Opinion


Pros:

  • Heavy broadside of twelve (12) 356mm main battery guns
  • Excellent main battery base range of 19.9km
  • Good dispersion and sigma, California can reliably land volleys at range
  • All-or-nothing armor scheme ensures great protection to the ship's midsection
  • The citadel block is completely submerged and very difficult to hit
  • Outstanding AA defenses
  • Excellent concealment with all relevant upgrades
  • Tight turn radius and fairly good rudder shift for a battleship

Cons:

  • Small gun caliber for a Tier 7 battleship
  • Very slow main battery reload speed and traverse speed
  • Extremely poor ship speed of only 20.5 knots
  • Extensively covered in 26mm plating, very vulnerable to HE spam and high caliber AP overmatch
  • Most of California's AA defenses are open mounts, and can be easily destroyed



Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

The recommended upgrades for California are as follows:

Commander Skills

Consumables

California can equip the following consumables:

Camouflage

As a premium ship, California comes 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.

Signals

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