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

The ship belonged to the generation of conventional battleships in the U.S. Navy. The main battery guns were concentrated in the ship's front and aft ends and were placed in superfiring turrets, which would soon become the standard. The battleship was armored according to the "all or nothing" concept, with the citadel being reliably protected and located in the center of the hull.

Player Opinion

Performance

' is the first taste of the "US Standard Battleship" type. Compared to her peers, New Mexico boasts the advantage of possessing a large broadside of twelve 356 mm rifles - but suffers from wonky accuracy at range. To compensate that, she must get close to the enemy, and fortunately New Mexico is exceedingly proficient at short to medium range combat due to her excellent rudder and tight turning circles aided by decent concealment to surprise the enemy, but going in requires foresight and planning because of her slow speed to chase or escape. Players are well advised to be careful when positioning themselves as New Mexico can easily be caught overextended, easily taking damage if not angled properly, and her bow plating are prone to overmatch by guns 380 mm or 15 inches up.

Pros:

  • Good shell velocity.
  • Very well-armored if angled properly.
  • Good main battery firing angles.
  • Exceptional torpedo protection.
  • Respectable anti-aircraft protection for Tier VI.
  • Tight turning radius for a battleship.
  • The main battery has twelve barrels.
  • Good concealment for a battleship.

Cons:

  • Poor turret traverse.
  • Poor main battery accuracy.
  • Slow main battery reload.
  • Weak secondary armament.
  • Pedestrian speed, and even slower acceleration
  • Large superstructure.

Research

This is a suggested research path:

  1. New Mexico Hull (B)
  2. Propulsion mod. 2
  3. Gun Fire Control System Mk6 mod. 2

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

Commander Skills

Because US battleships tend to have excellent anti-aircraft suites and poor secondary batteries, captain skills which increase the defensive abilities of the ship are recommended.

Consumables

' can equip the following consumables:

Camouflage

Type 1, 2, or 5 camouflage can be equipped for credits; Types 2 or 5 are recommended at a minimum to reduce the accuracy of incoming shells.

Players who wish to spend doubloons can equip New Mexico with Type 16 camouflage which reduces service costs, lowers her detection radius, reduces the accuracy of incoming shells, and increases the amount of experience she earns.

Alternatively, the 2018 New Year raid campaign provided captains with the Snowy camouflage with the same bonuses as the premium.

Signals

Economic signals are left to the discretion of the player. The following recommendations are for combat signals only.
