Georgia — American promo premium Tier IX battleship.

A "high-speed battleship" project which preceded the Iowa-class ships. The main battery comprised 457 mm guns placed in twin turrets, which were developed alongside the project of the ship herself in 1938.

Georgia was first released for sale worldwide on 14 June 2019.

Player Opinion

Performance

Georgia is loaded with so many gimmicks that any high tier Soviet, French, or Royal Navy battleship would be envious of her. A low number of hard-hitting guns, superior secondaries, and a special set of consumables make this "paper ship" perform very differently from her US counterparts like Iowa or Missouri.

Georgia comes packed with six 18-inch guns in three twin-turrets, an arrangement that is (rather unfortunately) familiar to Gneisenau captains. She does comes with a much more forgiving dispersion curve and a 26 second reload to compensate, though this is but a small mercy as Georgia will most certainly be lagging behind other battleships in terms of damage output. Still, her broadside power is not to be trifled with, considering she has the highest AP citadel damage in the game at 15,750 per shell thanks to her hefty 18-inch AP shells. Needless to say, anyone giving a broadside to what equates to roughly 2/3 of a Yamato-class battleship's main battery is just asking to be sunk.

Adding to that, Georgia’s secondaries are practically identical to those found on Massachusetts, with the same improved range, rate of fire and accuracy. She also borrows Massachusetts’s unique Repair Party (While active, restores a fixed percentage of a ship's hit points each second.) with a faster cooldown, and Bourgogne’s Engine Boost (While active, increases a ship's speed by a fixed percentage.) which increases her speed to nearly 38 knots when active. This does seem to set Georgia up as a mid- and close-range brawler. This isn't really the case as Georgia simply isn't as durable with a more vulnerable citadel, and simply doesn't have the damage output to do so. Generally, players should try to assess the situation to see when is the best opportunity for them to charge in guns blazing or flank around using Georgia’s blistering pace to catch an unaware enemy on the broadside. This is the most efficient way to take advantage of Georgia’s main guns and secondaries to maximise their damage output.

Georgia is undoubtedly the most unique amongst US battleships and because of that, she is pretty fun and comfortable to play. Treating her like an uptiered Massachusetts with more firepower and speed certainly isn't a bad way to play, and it will reward you for it.


Pros:

  • Highest alpha damage per shell of any battleship in the game, and can overmatch 30 mm plating.
  • Better dispersion than the standard US battleship dispersion curve.
  • Massachusetts-style secondaries with improved range, rate of fire and accuracy.
  • Improved engine boost consumable found on Bourgogne allowing speeds of nearly 38 knots.
  • Improved reload speed on main guns.
  • Reduced cooldown on Repair Party (While active, restores a fixed percentage of a ship's hit points each second.) consumable.

Cons:

  • Low number of main guns per broadside makes missed shots particularly painful.
  • Has the 2nd lowest DPM in its tier despite a faster reload speed.
  • Shares similar armor scheme with Iowa, which makes her vulnerable to citadel hits and plunging fire.
  • Low muzzle velocity on her main guns.
  • Fairly poor torpedo protection (26%).

Research

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

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

The recommended upgrades for Georgia are as follows:

Commander Skills

Key skills for Georgia commanders include Priority Target, Adrenaline Rush, Basic Firing Training, Superintendent, Advanced Firing Training, and Manual Fire Control for Secondary Armament if going for a secondaries build. Alternatively, Basics of Survivability, Fire Prevention, and Concealment Expert are suitable for a more classic battleship survivability build.

Consumables

Georgia can equip the following consumables:

Camouflage

As a premium ship, Georgia 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.

Signals

Georgia captains should mount standard signal flags to improve the ship's performance in battle. Sierra Mike (+5% to the ship's maximum speed.) flags are highly recommended to increase the ship's top speed. India Delta (+20% to the amount of HP recovered when the Repair Party consumable is used.) and India Yankee (-20% to fire duration.) flags should be mounted to improve the ship's survivability. November Foxtrot (-5% reload time on all consumables.) flags can also be mounted to decrease consumable cooldown time. Lastly, economic and special signal flags can be mounted to increase the ship's economic gains per battle.
