[[Ship:|]] — N/A promo premium Tier  N/A.

Deutschland-class training ship of the Wilhelmshaven Maritime High School. The commander of the ship is Thea Kreutzer and the vice commander is Wilhelmina. She has 28 cm guns mounted on a hull with a displacement equivalent to that of a training cruiser, and her diesel propulsion gives her an extensive cruising range. She is valued on distance voyages for her long cruising range.

From the series "High School Fleet". In the series, her long range is utilized in the foreign exchange voyage. HSF Admiral Graf Spee was released on both the NA and EU servers on 10 July 2017.

Player Opinion

Performance

HSF Admiral Graf Spee is a premium Tier VI German cruiser that is a re-skinned clone of the regular Tier VI premium Admiral Graf Spee.

She straddles the line with battleships in several ways. Most notably, her main battery is comprised of 283mm guns: the same caliber as Tier III battleship Nassau and Tier VII battleship Scharnhorst. With an alpha damage of 8,400 per shell and a 20 second reload time, the guns perform exceptionally well against lightly-armored enemy units. As a cruiser, her version of the 283mm guns seem to have much tighter dispersion patterns than Scharnhorst, rewarding accurate shell placement; unfortunately, with only six barrels total, bad dispersion can still ruin what would appear to be a well-aimed salvo.

Her other battleship-like characteristic is her access to the Repair Party (While active, restores a percentage of the ship's health points each second.) consumable, normally reserved for Tier IX and X cruisers. Spee will need the extra health, as her maneuverability is far below most cruisers (but still better than many battleships). Like other Tier VI cruisers, she receives the option of equipping either Defensive AA Fire (While active, the damage per second of large caliber anti-aircraft guns is increased.) or Hydroacoustic Search (While active, detects all enemy ships and torpedoes within the specified radius, without regard of obstacles such as smoke and terrain.). Spee’s last major unique characteristic is her torpedoes. Her torpedoes have a range of 8.0 km instead of the standard 6.0 km found on most German cruisers, allowing captains to surprise enemies who may believe they are safely outside her torpedo range and providing a bit more flexibility in their use.

While HSF Admiral Graf Spee is big and bulky, she is armored in a similar fashion to the rest of her cruiser classmates; she takes lots of damage and mistakes in positioning her will be quickly punished. Spee is not a ship for the un-skilled, but is a powerful tool in the hands of players who know how to minimize their exposure enemy fire and mitigate incoming damage.

Pros:

  • Largest health pool of all Tier VI cruisers.
  • Access to the Repair Party (While active, restores a percentage of the ship's health points each second.) consumable, giving her surprising durability.
  • Good mid-range torpedoes with excellent firing angles.
  • Decent anti-aircraft suite.
  • Largest guns of any cruiser with high penetration and alpha damage.
  • Surprising turret traverse speed.
  • Very high torpedo damage reduction for a cruiser, although this is an extremely situational advantage.
  • Guns can citadel Tier VIII battleships if close enough.
  • Genuinely sturdy ship that can survive against most cruisers it encounters.

Cons:

  • Only two turrets, which means getting all guns on target can leave Spee’s broadside vulnerable to return fire and if a turret is knocked out, it costs her half of her firepower.
  • Despite having the largest guns of all cruisers, she has low potential damage per minute due to her rate of fire.
  • With only six barrels and a slow reload, she will struggle when fighting destroyers.
  • Torpedo tubes easily knocked out.
  • Second slowest firing cruiser in game (only Furutaka’s stock guns are worse).
  • Slowest of all Tier VI cruisers.
  • Worst accuracy of all Tier VI cruisers.
  • Her Repair Party (While active, restores a percentage of the ship's health points each second.) consumable only has two uses (rather than the three found on battleships).


Research

As a premium ship, HSF Admiral Graf Spee doesn't have any upgrades to research.

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

The recommended upgrades for ' are as follows:


The upgrade options available for HSF Admiral Graf Spee won't radically alter how she plays, but they can be used to help shore up some of her weaker attributes. Main Armaments Modification 1 is the best fit for Upgrade Slot 1; with only two main battery turrets on a relatively slow reload, HSF Admiral Graf Spee shares Dunkerque’s vulnerability to turret-disabling hits. Damage Control System Modification 1 should be plugged into Upgrade Slot 2, while Steering Gears Modification 2 is recommended in Upgrade Slot 4 to improve her handling characteristics.

This leaves only Upgrade Slot 3, which offers some intriguing options. Particularly daring cruiser captains might wish to equip Secondary Battery Modification 1 (Extends firing range and increases firing accuracy of the secondary battery: +20% secondary battery firing range. / -20% secondary battery dispersion.); coupled with the German Hydroacoustic Search (While active, detects all enemy ships and torpedoes within the specified radius, without regard of obstacles such as smoke and terrain.), this would allow them to aggressively close with enemy cruisers and destroyers. It's a risky tactic given her relatively light armor scheme, but might pay off in certain situations given HSF Admiral Graf Spee’s healthy secondary armament. Either Aiming Systems Modification 1 or AA Guns Modification 1 (Improves AA efficiency: +20% reduction in the preparation time of the priority AA sector.) are safer bets, offering small but notable buffs to her dispersion and anti-aircraft bubble, respectively. Captains are recommended to choose what they feel will best fit their play style for the ship.

Commander Skills

Consumables

HSF Admiral Graf Spee can equip the following consumables:

Camouflage

As a premium ship, HSF Admiral Graf Spee comes included with Type 10 camouflage that lowers her detection radius, reduces the accuracy of incoming shells, and increases the amount of experience she earns.

Signals

HSF Admiral Graf Spee is a tad on the slow side for a cruiser; this can be helped by equipping Sierra Mike (+5% to the ship's maximum speed.) to bump her top speed to 29.9 knots. Other flags worth considering are: Mike Yankee Soxisix (+5% to secondary battery maximum firing range. / -5% to maximum dispersion of secondary battery shells. / -5% to secondary battery loading time.) for captains who went with a secondary battery build; India Delta (+20% to the amount of HP recovered when the Repair Party consumable is used.) to get the most out of her Repair Party (While active, restores a percentage of the ship's health points each second.); November Foxtrot (-5% reload time on all consumables.) to improve the cooldown times on her various consumables; and India Yankee (-20% to fire duration.) to further increase her survivability.
