Erie — American Tier I cruiser.

The Erie-class patrol gunboats were designed as small multipurpose ships capable of performing a wide range of tasks, from artillery support of landing operations to protection of convoys. The ships were well-armored and well-armed for their size. They were the first in the U.S. Navy to receive automatic AA guns.

Player Opinion

Performance

For a Tier I ship, Erie has the worst rate of fire, making her possibly the worst Tier I ship to play. Coupled with the slow turret traverse which cannot benefit from the +2.5deg/s due to the main battery caliber, it can make Erie somewhat frustrating to play. However, she is merely the start of the USN cruiser line and does not represent the performance of later tier cruisers, as players will quickly discover upon playing ships such as Cleveland.

Pros:

  • Brilliant armor (best of all Tier I ships).
  • Highest chance of causing a fire of all Tier I ships.
  • 9.6km Gun range.
  • Guns are quite accurate with a small dispersion arc.
  • Largest caliber guns of all Tier I ships.

Cons:

  • Longest reload time of all Tier I ships (together with Black Swan).
  • Second-slowest turret rotation of all Tier I ships.
  • Lowest damage per minute of all Tier I ships.
  • Big and therefore easy to hit.
  • Seems to lose its forward gun often.
  • Can get ahead of its support ships and get caught alone.
  • The concealment is almost useless as she only has guns to rely on.

Research

Like other Tier I ships, Erie only has the gun fire control systems module available to research. This module increases her range by 10%, bringing her firing range to 9.6km.

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

Commander Skills

As it is unexpected that players will seriously consider playing Erie longer than necessary or that players will consider assigning a skilled captain to her, the following is primarily aimed at players new to the game and players just beginning the US cruiser line. The skills listed will be generally useful to all ships in the line, excepting Inertia Fuse for HE Shells, which becomes a point liability past Tier VI.

Consumables

As a Tier I ship, Erie has access to only Damage Control Party (When activated, instantly repairs fires, floods, and incapacitations, and prevents more for the duration.).

Camouflage

Type 1, 2, or 5 camouflage can be equipped for credits; Types 1 or 5 are recommended at a minimum to reduce detectibility range.

Signals

As a Tier I ship, it is highly recommended to save signals for use in the later tiers. But should the player have a surplus and enjoy playing this ship, they should utilize the following recommended signals.
