?<!--+''{{#var:ship_name}}'', unlike other German battleships, is primarily a medium-range fighter with limited brawling capabilities, as a result of her good secondary armament, poor main guns, and non-turtleback but durable armor.
?PERFORMANCE SECTION GUIDELINES+ 
?1. Write a brief intro paragraph of 1-3 sentences.+Where ''{{#var:ship_name}}'' really shines is with her anti-aircraft armament. Her long-range aura consists of eight twin 105 mm dual purpose mounts, giving her the same long-range DPS as higher-tier ships like [[Bismarck]] and [[Friedrich der Große]] (Her continuous AA damage is actually ''higher'' than said ships!).
?2. Write 1-3 paragraphs of "meat". Talk about what the ship does well, what it doesn't, how it compares to same tier ships of the same type, how it compares to the previous ship in the tech tree, whatever. Try to avoid quoting vital statistics to players unless it is really relevant (i.e. concealment); they can see those in the sidebar on the right and don't need them read back. + 
?3. Write a brief summary paragraph of 1-3 sentences highlighting the key takeaways from the paragraphs above.+''{{#var:ship_name}}'' is also quite fast for ships of her tier, allowing her to close to within her ideal engagement range quite quickly. Her good armor and AA will keep her safe while doing so, and captains should have no problems handling her in a brawl. However, brawling should be kept to a minimum due to her non-existent turtleback.

 +Captains used to the play style of German battleships should be right at home when sailing ''{{#var:ship_name}}''.

 +''{{#var:ship_name}}'' Has the standard upgrade slots and choices for a tier VI battleship. A standard battleship build will work well for her, but she also has strong anti-aircraft power for tier 6, so if one enjoys ruining a carrier's day, mounting anti-aircraft modules can also work.

 ===History=== ===History===
?''Prinz Eitel Friedrich'', ordered as ''Ersatz Freya'' (a replacement for SMS ''Freya'') was named for one of Kaiser Wilhelm II's sons, Eitel Friedrich. She was laid down on 1 May 1915 at Blohm & Voss under construction number 241. She was 21 months away from completion when she was launched to clear the slip on 13 March 1920 and was broken up at Hamburg in 1921. At the launching ceremony, dockyard workers named the ship ''Noske'', after Reichswehr Minister Gustav Noske. ''Ersatz A'', which might have been named ''Fürst Bismarck'' for the famous German chancellor Otto von Bismarck, was laid down on 3 November 1915 at the Wilhelmshaven Imperial Shipyard under construction number 25. She was about 26 months from completion when work ended. She was never launched; instead, the vessel was broken up on the slip in 1922. 
 ====Design==== ====Design====
 +Following the ''Derfflinger''-class, a class of battlecruisers was ordered that would maintain the protection and speed, while increasing the caliber of the main armament to either 340mm or 355mm in four twin turrets. Following long debates about whether or not battlecruisers were actually needed, and how these should be built with what kind of priorities, a design was proposed which left most parties satisfied. As the displacement should not get too large, yet the demand for larger guns remained, sacrifices in armor had to be made to allow a ship to fulfill the speed requirement.

As the displacement should not get too large, yet the demand for larger guns remained, sacrifices in armor had to be made to allow a ship to fulfill the speed requirement.+The hull was 223.1m long overall and 30.9m wide, with a draft of up to 9.3m. Standard displacement was projected with 31,000 tons, while a fully loaded ship would displace 35,500 tons. Standard complement was slated to be 1,186 men, of which 46 would be officers.

Standard complement would be 1186 men, of which 46 would be officers.+One of the key features of the ''Mackensen''-class was the increased caliber for the main artillery. As a result, the main armament consisted of eight 35.5cm guns mounted in four twin turrets, arranged in a manner similar to the preceding ''Derfflinger''-class. Firing a 600kg shell, these guns were capable of maintaining a theoretical rate of fire of 2.5 rounds per minute per gun. The range of the gun varied depending on the mountings that were intended. While initial plans deemed a 16° elevation to be sufficient, war experiences demanded 20° elevations. These numbers were later raised to 28° for a maximum range of slightly above 28 kilometers. The secondary armament was planned as fourteen 150mm guns mounted in casemates below the deck. With a rate of fire between five and seven shots per minute and a maximum range of 13.5km, these guns would have fired 45.3km heavy AP or HE projectiles. Anti-aircraft armament consisted of eight single mounted 88mm guns, and five underwater-mounted torpedo launchers would theoretically allow these ships to torpedo their opponents.

Unlike the ''Derfflinger''-class, no turtleback was present, and instead the vertical protection consisted of a belt with 300mm thickness, which would thin out to 150mm for the upper belt and the lower edge. Behind that only a 50-60mm strong bulkhead would protect the machinery and magazines. Horizontal protection featured a 30mm deck over the vital areas, and a 25mm deck above. Protection of the main armament consisted of 250-290mm barbettes, while the turrets were armored with 320mm faces, a 180-190mm slope, 200-210mm strong sides and a 110mm roof. The conning tower had 300-350mm strong sides and was protected from above with a 100mm roof.

 The machinery of the ''Mackensen''-class consisted of sixteen boilers, of which four allowed the usage of both oil and coal, while the rest were purely coal-fired. They would produce the steam for four Parson-turbines for an overall rated 90,000 shp. Thisgave the ''Mackensen''-class a theoretical top speed of 28kn. 3,940 tons of coal and 1,970 tons of oil would allow for a Cruising Range of around 8,000nm at 14kn. The machinery of the ''Mackensen''-class consisted of sixteen boilers, of which four allowed the usage of both oil and coal, while the rest were purely coal-fired.

Player Opinion

Performance

Prinz Eitel Friedrich, unlike other German battleships, is primarily a medium-range fighter with limited brawling capabilities, as a result of her good secondary armament, poor main guns, and non-turtleback but durable armor.

Where Prinz Eitel Friedrich really shines is with her anti-aircraft armament. Her long-range aura consists of eight twin 105 mm dual purpose mounts, giving her the same long-range DPS as higher-tier ships like Bismarck and Friedrich der Große (Her continuous AA damage is actually higher than said ships!).

Prinz Eitel Friedrich is also quite fast for ships of her tier, allowing her to close to within her ideal engagement range quite quickly. Her good armor and AA will keep her safe while doing so, and captains should have no problems handling her in a brawl. However, brawling should be kept to a minimum due to her non-existent turtleback.

Captains used to the play style of German battleships should be right at home when sailing Prinz Eitel Friedrich.


Pros:

  • Faster than average main battery reload speed of 28 seconds
  • Reasonably accurate for a German battleship
  • Heavy secondary armament with a decent base range
  • High top speed of 28 knots
  • Well armored for a battlecruiser
  • Good long range AA aura

Cons:

  • Low main battery caliber for her tier
  • AP shells lack penetration, and HE shells have typical low damage and fire chance
  • Lacks a turtleback and can take devastating citadel hits when poorly positioned
  • Lacks access to an effective secondary build due to tier
  • Relatively weak mid and short range AA defenses
  • No access to aircraft or utility consumables

Research

As a premium ship, Prinz Eitel Friedrich doesn't have any upgrades to research.

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

Prinz Eitel Friedrich Has the standard upgrade slots and choices for a tier VI battleship. A standard battleship build will work well for her, but she also has strong anti-aircraft power for tier 6, so if one enjoys ruining a carrier's day, mounting anti-aircraft modules can also work.

The recommended upgrades for Prinz Eitel Friedrich are as follows:

Commander Skills

Key skills for specialised Prinz Eitel Friedrich commanders include Priority Target and Superintendent. Other commander skills are variable, however it should be noted that many AA skills are not as effective as they once were and that Prinz Eitel Friedrich, due to its location in Tier 6, does not gain full benefits from the Manual Fire Control for Secondary Armament skill.

Consumables

Prinz Eitel Friedrich can equip the following consumables:

Premium variants of the consumables are recommended to improve performance in battle.

Camouflage

As a premium ship, Prinz Eitel Friedrich comes included with Type 10 camouflage that lowers her detection radius, reduces the accuracy of incoming shells, reduces her repair costs, and increases the amount of experience she earns.

Signals

Prinz Eitel Friedrich captains should mount standard signal flags to improve the ship's performance in battle. Sierra Mike (+5% to the ship's maximum speed.) flags are recommended to increase the ship's top speed. India Delta (+20% to the amount of HP recovered when the Repair Party consumable is used.), India Yankee (-20% to fire duration.) and November Foxtrot (-5% reload time on all consumables.) flags should be mounted to improve the ship's survivability. November Echo Setteseven (+5% continuous damage by all AA guns, +5% damage per second within the explosion radius of shells fired from medium- and long-range AA defenses.) flags can also be mounted to increase the ship's anti-aircraft damage. Lastly, economic and special signal flags can be mounted to increase the ship's economic gains per battle.
