?''New Mexico'' continues with the tradition of American battleships up to this point. She's slow but armored like, well, a battleship. Her main advantage over her Tier VI battleship competitors (''[[Warspite]]'', ''[[Bayern]]'', and ''[[Fuso]]'') is the layout of her main gun; she has four triple-barrel super-firing turrets, two fore and two aft. This means that ''New Mexico'' can face the enemy more head on than other battleships, thus giving the ship even better armor due to angling. Use this to close in on those opponents who out-range you while providing a small silhouette. +''New Mexico'' is the very definition of the "US Standard Battleship" type. Slow and heavily armored, ''New Mexico'' has the advantage of possessing twelve rifles for her main battery - a feature only matched by [[Ship:Fuso|''Fuso'']] until Tier X. ''New Mexico'' is exceedingly proficient at short range combat, but requires foresight and planning because of her slow speed. Players are well advised to be careful when positioning themselves as ''New Mexico'' can easily be caught overextended.

?* Large number of main guns: she has the same number of 14-inch (356mm) guns as her Japanese tier equivalent, ''[[Fuso]]''.+* Twelve main battery guns.
?* High shell velocity: amazing shell velocity even with range upgrades makes aiming easier.+* Excellent shell velocity.
 * Very thick belt armor. * Very thick belt armor.
?* All-or nothing armor: she has an all-or-nothing armor scheme that is one of the most resilient in the game, providing a large immune zone when angled.+* Good HE performance.
?* Large broadside firing arc: her firing arc allows it to minimize the broadside she shows while shooting all guns, and angle quickly after shooting+* Superb main battery firing angles.
?* Powerful anti-aircraft armament; AA suite is enough to shoot down 2-3 planes before a strike occurs.+* Exceptional torpedo protection.
?* Decent torpedo defenses: effective torpedo defenses allows her to take solitary midships torpedo hits with only small permanent loss in hitpoints (after partial regeneration).+* Excellent anti-aircraft protection for Tier VI.
?* Shells have amazing penetration qualities.+* Excellent maneuverability.
  
 |Cons=<!-- write list of negative points below. use * as in ordinary wiki-list. --> |Cons=<!-- write list of negative points below. use * as in ordinary wiki-list. -->
?* Poor gun characteristics: much shorter range, slower reload and worse dispersion compared to ''[[Fuso]]'', and can find herself helpless against longer ranged opponents with bigger guns.+* Poor turret traverse.
?* Very low mobility: like the preceding American battleship ''[[New York]]'', she is incredibly slow with only a 21kts top speed upgraded, and poor rudder shift in stock configuration.+* Poor main battery accuracy.
?* Poor stock anti-aircraft defenses: AA on stock hull is horrible and not too much better with Hull (B), and only gets good with Hull (C).+* Weak secondary armament.
?* All-or-nothing armor drawbacks: While her armor prevents citadel hits, it guarantees regular hits which can be problematic against other battleships of equal tier.+* Very poor speed.
?* More guns concentrated per turret: having only 4 turrets, she loses a quarter of her firepower if a turret is knocked out.+* Large superstructure.
?* Large and vulnerable superstructure: large superstructure makes it vulnerable to HE damage.+* Worst battleship main battery range at Tier VI.
?* AP penetration is fairly weak until getting to medium range (~9-10 km) or closer.+

?Your first step in research should be the B hull. Not only does it give you additional combat capability points, WWII ammunition and a well-needed dose of AA batteries, it shortens your rudder shift time from 25.7 to 18.4 seconds (-28%) - this can be the difference between two or three impacts from a destroyer or airplane torpedo salvo. Once your survivability is in order, it's time to look at your playstyle for the next upgrades. If you find yourself lagging behind the team and not contributing to the battle due to your short stock range and low speed, upgrade the aiming system and engine first. Just be careful with enemy aircraft! If you can anticipate the turns of the battle well enough to be in range of enemies enough of the time, you can go straight for the C hull to beef up your Anti-Aircraft batteries to their final levels.+Players should consider the hull upgrade as the first priority for research. Not only does this increase the survivability of ''New Mexico'' and her maneuverability, her anti-aircraft complement is dramatically improved. The fire control upgrade is an excellent choice for the second upgrade because ''New Mexico'' has terrible range as a stock ship. As she is already quite slow, the engine upgrade will provide the least utility.

New Mexico — American Tier VI battleship.

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

New Mexico is the very definition of the "US Standard Battleship" type. Slow and heavily armored, New Mexico has the advantage of possessing twelve rifles for her main battery - a feature only matched by Fuso until Tier X. New Mexico is exceedingly proficient at short range combat, but requires foresight and planning because of her slow speed. Players are well advised to be careful when positioning themselves as New Mexico can easily be caught overextended.

Pros:

  • Twelve main battery guns.
  • Excellent shell velocity.
  • Very thick belt armor.
  • Good HE performance.
  • Superb main battery firing angles.
  • Exceptional torpedo protection.
  • Excellent anti-aircraft protection for Tier VI.
  • Excellent maneuverability.

Cons:

  • Poor turret traverse.
  • Poor main battery accuracy.
  • Weak secondary armament.
  • Very poor speed.
  • Large superstructure.
  • Worst battleship main battery range at Tier VI.

Research

Players should consider the hull upgrade as the first priority for research. Not only does this increase the survivability of New Mexico and her maneuverability, her anti-aircraft complement is dramatically improved. The fire control upgrade is an excellent choice for the second upgrade because New Mexico has terrible range as a stock ship. As she is already quite slow, the engine upgrade will provide the least utility.

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

New Mexico has access to upgrade slots 1, 2, 4, and 5. She is best played with an emphasis on either the main battery or anti-aircraft defense.

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

Players should consider using premium consumables in the following order of priority: Damage Control Party, Repair Party, and Spotting Aircraft.

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 lowers her detection radius, reduces the accuracy of incoming shells, and increases the amount of experience she earns.

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