Danae — British Tier IV cruiser.

Developed from the preceding Caledon-class cruiser ships. In contrast to her predecessors, she was bigger in size and had more powerful torpedoes. Apart from that, Danae featured reinforced artillery.

Player Opinion


At first glance, Danae might appear to suffer from the same problem that her immediate predecessor has: not enough guns. Further research, though, shows the concern is largely unwarranted. She sports six centerline-mounted 152mm rifles, and — just like Caledon — she can bring them all to bear on a single target with reasonable haste. This leaves her only a couple of guns shy of the maximum broadsides of rivals like Phoenix and Svietlana and slightly ahead of Karlsruhe. Her 8 rounds per minute rate of fire is also comparable for the tier.

As befits her light cruiser status, her armor is nothing to write home about and her health pool is below average; Danae’s ability to utilize the Repair Party consumable is key to getting the most out of her in a given game. Her maximum firing range is excellent — second only to Yubari — and her rudder shift time is also above average, though her speed places her firmly in the middle-of-the-pack. She starts off with the same torpedoes as Caledon, though in an upgraded two triple-tube per side configuration. She can research a torpedo upgrade that moderately increases the damage and speed of her fish, but unfortunately does nothing for their 6.0 km range.


  • Centerline mounted guns with excellent traverse time ensure she can get all her barrels on target when she wants to.
  • Twelve torpedo tubes available (six per side) for maximum carnage.
  • Maintains access to the Repair Party consumable, giving her additional survivability if played intelligently.
  • Good handling characteristics: solid rudder shift time and best-in-tier turning circle radius.


  • Only six barrels will leave most captains feeling under-gunned even if they technically aren't against equal-tiered ships. When up-tiered into Tier V games, Danae can definitely find herself a liability to her team.
  • Smallest health pool of all non-premium Tier IV cruisers.
  • Lack of high explosive shells leaves her unable to reliably damage angled battleships.
  • Engine compartment space sits relatively high amidships; she is not hard to land citadels against when broadside.
  • Guns have very high shell arcs, making hitting fast-moving targets at long ranges difficult.


Captains are recommended to research modules in the following order: the Fire Control System module first, then Hull (B), and lastly the Torpedo upgrade.

Optimal Configuration


Main Armaments Modification 1 remains the best choice available for Upgrade Slot 1; Upgrade Slot 4 is captain's choice.

Commander Skills

Danae is almost certain to encounter enemy aircraft carriers eventually, but her overall AA damage per second is so low that it makes sinking points into Basic and Advanced Firing Training unattractive. Captains should only do so if they intend to move the commander to a different ship that will have a better anti-aircraft suite.


Players can equip the following consumables on this cruiser: Damage Control Party, Repair Party, and Hydroacoustic Search (upon equipping Hull (B)).

As a Royal Navy light cruiser, Danae can be deadly to enemy destroyers. This makes it advisable to equip premium Hydroacoustic Search II once Hull (B) has been researched and equipped. Additionally, her thin armor makes it highly advisable to equip premium Repair Party II.


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.


As a mid-tier light cruiser, captains may find some frustration grinding through Danae; it's worthwhile to mount an Equal Speed Charlie London signal to help speed things along. It's also viable to mount India Delta because of how fragile the ship is and the fact that this cruiser has access to a heal ability. Additionally, it is worthwhile to mount November Foxtrot due to Danae’s access to three consumables (Hydroacoustic Search is unlocked upon equipping Hull (B)).
