Emden — German promo premium Tier II cruiser.
This ship served as a multipurpose protected cruiser of the German Navy. Compared with the lead ship of her series, she had a different type of propulsion. She carried numerous rapid-fire guns of a relatively small caliber, and was well protected for a ship of her type.
The ship was given out during the 2015 Holiday season by completing a three part mission series.

LittleWhiteMouse's Premium Ship Review: Emden from the NA forums
- Insanely fast reload.
- Great turret turning time.
- Puts a lot of lead down range.
- Is a DDs worse nightmare due to HE spam.
- Is virtually the Dresden in everyway, players familiar with her will have no problem using her.
- Shortest firing range of all Tier II cruisers.
- HE shells do extremely small amounts of damage and AP is practically worthless.
- Large turning radius for a ship her size makes dodging torpedoes a challenge.
- High shell arc.
- No secondaries.
CamouflageAs a premium ship, Emden comes included with Type 9 camouflage that lowers her detection radius, reduces the accuracy of incoming shells, and increases the amount of experience she earns.

SMS Emden was the second and final member of the Dresden class of light cruisers built for the Imperial German Navy (Kaiserliche Marine). Named for the town of Emden, she was laid down at the Kaiserliche Werft (Imperial Dockyard) in Danzig in 1906. Her hull was launched in May 1908, and completed in July 1909. She had one sister ship, Dresden. Like the preceding Königsberg-class cruisers, Emden was armed with ten (10) 10.5 cm (4.1-inch) guns and two torpedo tubes.
Emden spent the majority of her career overseas in the German East Asia Squadron, based in Tsingtao, in the Kiautschou Bay concession in China. In 1913, she came under the command of Karl von Müller, who would captain the ship during World War I. At the outbreak of hostilities, Emden captured a Russian steamer and converted her into the commerce raider Cormoran. Emden rejoined the East Asia Squadron, after which she was detached for independent raiding in the Indian Ocean. The cruiser spent nearly two months operating in the region, and captured nearly two dozen ships. In late October 1914, Emden launched a surprise attack on Penang; in the resulting Battle of Penang, she sank the Russian cruiser Zhemchug and the French destroyer Mousquet.
Müller then took Emden to raid the Cocos Islands, where he landed a contingent of sailors to destroy British facilities. There, Emden was attacked by the Australian cruiser HMAS Sydney. The more powerful Australian ship quickly inflicted serious damage and forced Müller to run his ship aground to prevent her from sinking. Out of a crew of 376, 133 were killed in the battle. Most of the survivors were taken prisoner; the landing party, led by Hellmuth von Mücke, commandeered an old schooner and eventually returned to Germany. Emden's wreck was quickly destroyed by wave action, and was broken up for scrap in the 1950s.
Historical AccuracyEmden was sunk during World War I and only served with the Imperial German Navy, yet it flies the Kriegsmarine ensign of Nazi Germany. The flag itself did not exist until the 1930s.
