Player Opinion


' is quite similar to her tech-tree sister, Colorado. Armed with the same set of eight 16" guns, tough armor, and sluggish maneuverability, captains familiar with Colorados play style will be right at home using ''.

' is placed at Tier VI, and as such has a few differences from her sister at Tier VII. She has a difference of 9,100 hit points, and almost 3 kilometers less range. She does however possess a faster rudder shift time. Her anti-aircraft firepower is also significantly worse than that of Colorado, and even worse than that of Arizona.

Like her sister, ' excels at mid- and close-range engagements with her enemies. Her large, accurate guns are devastating against cruisers and battleships alike, and her thick armor, when angle properly, keeps her safe from being citadelled by enemy armor piercing ammunition, although guns larger than 356mm will still get overmatch penetration damage on her 25mm plating. She is quite vulnerable to high explosive shells, especially those found on higher tier cruisers and destroyers.

Her slow speed and short range requires captains to have a good grasp of positioning and map layouts to reach engagements in a safe and timely fashion. Captains should be wary of over extending, as her speed will prevent her from withdrawing safely. When top tier, ' can easily lead a push; when up-tiered, ' is best played as a mid-range support ship.

Captains who have experience playing Colorado — or any of the American battleships from Tier VII and below — should have no problems playing '. She offers players something different than Arizona: fewer shells, but more punch.


  • Eight 406mm guns with the same penetration and damage as Colorado
  • Very durable against AP shells of 356mm and lower caliber when properly angled
  • Well armored citadel positioned low in the ship, making citadel penetrations uncommon
  • Good turn radius and quick rudder shift for a battleship


  • Very low top speed, a common weakness for American low- and mid-tier battleships
  • Very weak AA defenses, easy target for plane attacks
  • Mostly covered with 25mm thick plating, very vulnerable to HE penetrations and 380mm or larger battleship guns
  • Very poor concealment
  • Very short main battery range makes the 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.) almost mandatory


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

Optimal Configuration


The recommended upgrades for ' are as follows:

Commander Skills

Key skills for ' commanders include Priority Target, Expert Marksman, Superintendent, and Fire Prevention.


' can equip the following consumables:


As a premium ship, ' comes included with Type 9 camouflage that lowers her detection radius, reduces the accuracy of incoming shells, reduces her repair costs, and increases the amount of experience she earns.


' 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.) and India Yankee (-20% to fire duration.) flags should be mounted to improve the ship's survivability. November Foxtrot (-5% reload time on all consumables.) flags can also be mounted to decrease consumable cooldown time. Lastly, economic and special signal flags can be mounted to increase the ship's economic gains per battle.
