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

Slot 1 is most commonly filled with Main Armaments Modification 1 (-20% to the risk of main battery becoming incapacitated. / +50% to main battery survivability. / -20% to main battery repair time. / -20% to the risk of torpedo tubes becoming incapacitated. / +50% to torpedo tubes survivability. / -20% to torpedo tubes repair time.), though Auxiliary Armaments Modification 1 (Increases survivability of the secondary battery and AA mounts: +100% survivability to each.) is a popular pick for captains who go for a full AA build with other upgrades and commander skills.

Slot 2 has one choice for battleships - Damage Control System Modification 1 (Reduces the risk of fire and flooding.: -5% to the risk of fire. / -3% to the risk of flooding when torpedoes hit the torpedo protection.). This will reduce chances of fire and flood.

Slot 3 offers several options. AA Guns Modification 2 (OBSOLETE Replaced by Auxiliary Armaments Modification 2.) will boost maximum AA range, while Secondary Battery Modification 1 (Extends firing range and increases firing accuracy of the secondary battery: +20% secondary battery firing range. / -20% secondary battery dispersion.) will boost the range and accuracy of secondaries instead. Artillery Plotting Room Modification 1 (Extends the firing range of the main battery and secondary battery: +16% main battery firing range. / +5% secondary battery firing range. / -5% secondary battery dispersion.) will increase range and give secondaries a slight boost in range and accuracy, but may be a weaker choice than the other two.

Slot 4 Steering Gears Modification 1 (Reduces rudder shift time: -20% rudder shift time.) is recommended and will reduce rudder shift time. Captains with fire problems could also consider Damage Control System Modification 2 (Accelerates fire extinguishing and recovery from flooding: -15% flooding recovery time. / -15% fire duration.), reducing the amount of time on fire and conserving hit points.

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 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.
