Mainz — German promo premium Tier VIII cruiser.

The project of a cruiser with 150 mm guns (cruiser K), which was developed in the mid-1930s on the basis of the Admiral Hipper-class ships, shortly after the construction of the latter began. She combined the rapid-fire battery of light cruisers with the survivability of heavy ones.

Player Opinion


Pros:

  • Great AA suite for her tier
  • Strong AP shells can punish unaware enemies
  • Fast firing guns with a 6 second reload
  • Improved HE pen allows captains to forgo IFHE

Cons:

  • Lacks a heal
  • Lightly armored turrets can be knocked out easily
  • Weaker armor scheme than her same tier German counterparts
  • HE shells have a very low fire chance

Research

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

Optimal Configuration


Commander Skills

Camouflage

As a premium ship, Mainz 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.
