Player Opinion


Pros:

  • Heavy broadside of twelve (12) main guns
  • Excellent main battery dispersion
  • Decent rudder shift and turn radius for a Tier 9 battleship
  • Decent concealment with all available upgrades

Cons:

  • Main battery range is lacking
  • Second worst main battery reload speed in its class - 38 seconds unmodified
  • Aft turrets have fairly bad firing angles
  • Despite the good dispersion, Hizen's main guns have subpar sigma (1.7)
  • Significantly worse AP penetration than techtree counterpart Izumo
  • Extensively covered with 32mm plating, vulnerable to HE spam and 460/510mm AP overmatch
  • A maximum of four Repair Party (While active, restores a percentage of the ship's health points each second.) charges (three stock)
  • AA defenses are merely average, Hizen is vulnerable to all plane attacks

Research

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