Player Opinion

Performance

Prinz Eitel Friedrich, unlike other German battleships, is primarily a medium-range fighter with limited brawling capabilities, as a result of: good secondary armament, semi-decent main guns, and non-existent turtle-backed but durable armor.

Where Prinz Eitel Friedrich really shines is with her anti-aircraft armament. Her long-range aura consists of eight dual 105 mm dual purpose mounts, allowing her to reach a maximum range of 7.6 km and to benefit from Manual Fire Control for AA Armament.

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 turtle-backed armor).

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


Pros:

  • Rapid reload on her main battery guns.
  • Excellent anti-aircraft suite which benefits greatly from Manual Fire Control for AA Armament.
  • Formidable secondary battery with a long range of 7.6km when fully specialized.
  • Fast for her tier, with a top speed of 28 knots.
  • Feigned fragility - her armour is quite durable for a battlecruiser.
  • Despite having a bad dispersion, her main guns are more accurate than guns on most German battleships.

Cons:

  • Dispersion of the main battery guns may be inconsistent.
  • Does not get maximum effect from Manual Fire Control for Secondary Armament due to being Tier VI.
  • Poor turning circle.
  • Despite having durable armor, unlike the rest of her German battleship peers, she doesn't get the signature turtleback armor, making brawling hazardous.
  • Main guns, do an inconsistent amount damage to targets.

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 Prinz Eitel Friedrich commanders include Priority Target, Expert Marksman, Basic Firing Training, and Advanced Firing Training.

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.
