Iowa — American Tier IX battleship.

One of the most powerful battleships of World War II. The ship was designed for escorting attack carrier forces. She surpassed the speed of all battleships in the world. The battleship's survivability was significantly improved owing to a novel and powerful torpedo protection system and a fundamentally different armor protection system featuring an internal armor belt.

All four Iowa-class ships built are now preserved as military museum ships: USS Iowa in San Pedro, California; USS Missouri in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii; USS Wisconsin in Norfolk, Virginia; and USS New Jersey in Camden, New Jersey.

Player Opinion

Performance

The historical counterpart of the famed battleship Yamato, Iowa is the pinnacle of the various fast battleship designs the United States commissioned into service before and during World War II.

By using what you have learned in the North Carolina, Iowa becomes even more potent as it she is more nimble and sturdy at her tier albeit longer. However, Iowa’s citadel is very easy to hit when broadside, especially under the front turrets so careful positioning and good situational awareness is required at all times to ensure you don't get removed from the game with a devastating strike, and it makes fighting at close ranges very tricky as her length may be more of a liability than a total asset. However, once mastered, Iowa’s capabilities are unmatched by just about any battleship in game, combining speed, firepower, and survivability in a way that is nearly impossible to match in any other ship in her tier and below. The mobility allows you to get to where you are needed, the powerful superheavy rounds allow you to damage whatever you encounter there, and the armor allows you to tank punishment provided you don't show broadside or get blindsided by a torpedo wall.

LittleWhiteMouse's Ship Review: Iowa from the NA Forums

Pros:

  • Same gun range as her predecessor and highest range for a battleship at her tier.
  • Better penetration and shell velocity compared to North Carolina due to the 50 caliber gun.
  • Able to mount Artillery Plotting Room Modification 2 for better dispersion.
  • Armor is more durable than predecessors.
  • Incredible anti-aircraft suite makes her highly resistant to aerial assault.
  • Improved torpedo defense system with a torpedo damage reduction of 27% (compared to North Carolina’s 19%).
  • The fastest battleship in the game at a whopping 33 knots.
  • Third turret has a greatly improved gun arc over North Carolina, allowing it to be used while angling effectively.

Cons:

  • Weaker broadside armor than standard Battleships, but stronger broadside armor than the NC.
  • Bad rudder shift time (over 20 sec) until Hull (C).
  • Longest ship so far (by a decent margin) with a turning circle to match in the American battleship line which can take some getting used to when trying to dodge torpedoes.
  • Very tall superstructure makes her easier to hit, especially when trying to hide behind islands.
  • Weak secondary armament, very low range on secondary armament as well compared to counterparts.

Research

Investing experience into Hull (B) is top priority; it brings additional hit points and a large bump to Iowa’s anti-aircraft capabilities. The Engine module upgrade should come next, followed by Hull (C) and the Fire Control System upgrade last.

Optimal Configuration


Commander Skills

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 Iowa with Type 19 camouflage that lowers her detection radius, reduces the accuracy of incoming shells, reduces her repair costs, and increases the amount of experience she earns.
