Montana — American Tier X battleship.

One of the largest battleships in the world. She was slightly inferior to Iowa-class ships in terms of speed, but had more main guns and significantly stronger torpedo protection. Montana's armor was conventionally arranged and considerably reinforced.

Player Opinion

Performance

Often being called as the "Yamato killer" for the US Navy, the Montana at first glance is basically a supersized Iowa with an additional triple mount turret and having thicker belt and deck armor. Her offense capability relies on her heavy broadside to smash enemy battleships or destroy anything smaller should the rounds connect. She also has an extremely powerful AA suite, able to protect herself from lower tiered CVs, but is not strong enough to defend against tier X carriers. However, while she can sail at 30 kts, her large size and slow rudder shift time make her vulnerable to torpedo attack, and with only 16 in guns, they do not get the ability to overmatch 32mm thick armor like Yamato's 46cm guns can, meaning you may have to sling HE at well angled battleships. The dispersion of her main guns were recently buffed, making her more precise and less of a "shotgun", but she is still not as accurate as Yamato.

Pros:

  • 12 guns generally means that something will hit even if your aim is slightly off and can seriously damage destroyers without swapping ammunition
  • Phenomenal broadside killing power exceeds even Yamato and can one-salvo anything that floats; losing or masking a turret still leaves you with Iowa broadside firepower
  • Best AA suite in the game
  • Quick turret traverse speed
  • Two turrets still deliver 6 shells, allowing Montana to fire effective salvos at two targets simultaneously
  • Faster than Yamato (30 kts compared to 27)
  • In 0.5.9 have some improvements in armor layout

Cons:

  • Uses same guns as the Iowa, no real upgrade for a tier up
  • Worse TDS than the Yamato
  • Shorter range compared to Yamato, though still adequate at just over 23km
  • Worse dispersion than Yamato.
  • Citadel size is bigger than Yamato's due to her longer length.
  • Bow is overmatched by Yamato 460mm shells (like every other ship), guaranteeing at least a regular penetration and making front bulkhead citadels more likely
  • Overall, in the games current state, the Montana has difficulty beating a Yamato in a 1 on 1 duel.
