Kansas — American Tier VIII battleship.

This battleship design was used as the basis for constructing of a number of warships after World War I. She was similar to the Colorado class in many aspects, being, in fact, an enhanced version of her with more powerful armament. This warship was the crown of the developmental process of "standard" battleships in the U.S. Navy.

Player Opinion


Pros:

  • Heavy broadside of twelve (12) 406mm main guns
  • Excellent main battery range
  • Tight turn radius for a battleship
  • The citadel is located below the waterline, and is hard to hit
  • Good torpedo damage reduction, torpedo bulges cover most of the ship's sides
  • Good AA suite, bolstered by the Defensive AA Fire (While active, the damage per second of large caliber anti-aircraft guns is increased.) consumable

Cons:

  • The slowest Tier 8 battleship, with a base speed of 23 knots
  • Extremely slow reload speed - 40 seconds unmodified
  • High dispersion, very poor sigma (1.5) and low AP penetration at range
  • Extensively covered in 32mm plating, very vulnerable to HE spam and large caliber AP overmatch, making her very squishy.
  • Like California, Kansas has shot traps on both sides of the ship, hindering its angling potential
  • Lacks the improved Repair Party (While active, restores a percentage of the ship's health points each second.) found on other tech tree American battleships
  • Most of Kansas's AA defenses are open mounts, and can be easily destroyed with HE
  • Despite its underwater citadel, Kansas can take massive amounts of normal penetration damage when showing a full broadside
