New Orleans — American Tier VII cruiser.

The first U.S. heavy cruiser of the new generation. The key difference from the preceding cruisers was her remarkably reinforced armor. Taking into account her limited displacement, the ship boasted a successful balance of armament, protection and speed.

Player Opinion

Performance

New Orleans is basically a melding of Pensacola, Northampton, and Portland — currently represented by Tier VII Premium cruiser Indianapolis — and shows herself as a new shift in US heavy cruisers. A stocky ship, it should come as to no surprise that her armor is a vast improvement from Pensacola (not hard to do), allowing her to at least handle herself in cruiser duels. Her AA suite is also somewhat better, though it is not until Tier VIII's Baltimore that American heavy cruiser anti-aircraft defenses become truly fearsome.

She has the same excellent gun performance as the Pensacola. When fully specialized for concealment she has a 10.6 km detection radius by sea. Despite this, pushing in at the beginning of a battle is an extremely hazardous proposition as her armor is still inadequate protection against battleships, especially considering her mediocre health pool. She must use islands and concealment to contribute in the early game without taking too much fire. The later stages of the game can offer more opportunities to be aggressive, whether it is hunting down enemy destroyers or ambushing enemy cruisers.

Pros:

  • Decently armored; more capable of bouncing enemy shells than Pensacola.
  • Solid main battery performance; reload speed is good for its tier, turret traverse speed is above average, and firing range is adequate.
  • Decent anti-aircraft armament.
  • Excellent concealment (better than Japanese counterpart Myoko).

Cons:

  • Armor must to be angled to be effective against cruiser shells, and it remains very weak against battleship AP.
  • Most of the anti-aircraft firepower is located in the smallest diameter bubble.
  • Second slowest rate-of-fire of all non-Premium Tier VII heavy cruisers.

Research

Availability of researchable upgrades for New Orleans is as follows:

  • Hull: Upgrade to Hull (B) for more hitpoints, more anti-air capabilities, and better rudder shift time. Research of this module unlocks progression to Baltimore.
  • Gun Fire Control System: Upgrade to Mk7 mod. 2 for an extra 10% range on the main battery.
Captains should grab Hull (B) first for the added health, then move on to the range upgrade.

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

The recommended upgrades for New Orleans are as follows:

Anti-Aircraft Build: Captains focusing on making New Orleans have better AA will opt for Auxiliary Armaments Modification 1 (Increases survivability of the secondary battery and AA mounts: +100% survivability to each.) for Slot 1 to increase the anti-aircraft armament durability and AA Guns Modification 1 (Improves AA efficiency: +20% reduction in the preparation time of the priority AA sector.) for Slot 3 to increase her medium- and long-range AA power. The usefulness of this build is dependent on whether there is a carrier in the game. The presence of an enemy carrier generally can be ensured by forming a division with a friendly carrier.

Generalist Build: Captains focusing on making New Orleans a more well-rounded ship will opt for 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.) for Slot 1 and Aiming Systems Modification 1 (Increases the firing accuracy of the main battery and secondary battery, accelerates the traverse speed of torpedo tubes, and extends the firing range of the secondary battery: -7% main battery dispersion. / +20% torpedo tubes traverse speed. / +5% secondary battery firing range. / -5% secondary battery dispersion.) for the Slot 3 to increase her accuracy.

Commander Skills

The poor range and DPS of the large caliber AA makes it not really worth it to choose Manual Fire Control for AA Armament, as the ship can reliably shoot down enemy strike aircraft with Defensive AA Fire (While active, the damage per second of large caliber anti-aircraft guns is increased.) alone.

Consumables

New Orleans can equip the following consumables:

Captain focusing New Orleans on AA build will equip Defensive AA Fire (While active, the damage per second of large caliber anti-aircraft guns is increased.) for the Slot 2, especially when in a division with a carrier. Although for solo playing, Hydroacoustic Search (While active, detects all enemy ships and torpedoes within the specified radius, without regard of obstacles such as smoke and terrain.) is more recommended if there is no carrier around.

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 Orleans with Type 17 camouflage that lowers her detection radius, reduces the accuracy of incoming shells, reduces her repair costs, and increases the amount of experience she earns.
