Player Opinion


Friesland is a Tier IX ship representing the European branch. She is equipped with only two dual mount gun turrets. She has a quick reload time and a variety of consumables at her disposal. Uncommon for destroyers in this game, she is not equipped with a torpedo armament.

Friesland is an odd-ship, in that her playstyle tends to drift toward that of a gunship destroyer or cruiser. Her gun range must be upgraded to achieve her full potential, and even then, she will likely struggle against ships such as Khabarovsk or Harugumo. Without torpedoes, she is reliant on rapid-firing small-caliber guns. These guns have decent velocity for short-range engagements but tend to have longer flight times at greater ranges. This means that Friesland is reliant on her agility and speed to dodge incoming fire. Her concealment is poor, although she really has no need for it because, in order to deal any damage, she has to fire her guns. She can provide smoke to teammates and has a decent anti-aircraft armament, making her a viable escort ship. For anything other than division play, captains will need to maintain a high level of situational awareness.

Information on the website: Armada: Friesland


  • High rate of fire and fast turret traverse speed.
  • Access to both Defensive AA Fire (While active, the damage per second of large caliber anti-aircraft guns is increased.) and Hydroacoustic Search (While active, detects all enemy ships and torpedoes within the specified radius, without regard of obstacles such as smoke and terrain.) consumables.
  • Has long-lasting American smoke.
  • Effective anti-aircraft armament.


  • No torpedoes.
  • If a single turret is disabled, she has lost 50% of her firepower.
  • No Repair Party (While active, restores a percentage of the ship's health points each second.).
  • Poor concealment and stock gun range use up precious commander points and two upgrade slots.


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