Battle Levels

Ishizuchi — Japanese premium Tier IV battleship.

One of the draft designs for a battlecruiser of the Imperial Japanese Navy that subsequently materialized as the Kongo class. The ship had a high speed and an impressive artillery. The arrangement of main turrets allowed her to fire a full broadside with all main battery guns. The known drawback of the ship's design was a very weak horizontal armor.

Player Opinion


Ishizuchi, while marketed as a Tier IV battleship, might properly be called a battlecruiser. She features quite good maneuverability and speed for a battleship, but her armor simply cannot take the punishment of her contemporaries like Kaiser or Wyoming. At first glance, she heavily resembles the Tier V Kongo, which is largely correct: Ishizuchi is essentially a Kongo prototype. She looks a lot like her Tier V cousin, but that's where the similarities end. Ishizuchi has a bearable rudder shift time of less than 13 seconds and a top speed bordering 28 knots, making her one of the faster battleships in the game. She also features five (5) twin-gun turrets containing decent 305mm guns. Unfortunately, she suffers from absolutely terrible anti-aircraft defenses and almost no armor, meaning she must be careful and look at the map often for torpedo bombers and enemy battleships.

Her 305mm armor-piercing rounds will also give players some headaches. Don't expect them to reliably penetrate enemy battleships; hilariously, she is better off firing high explosive rounds at enemy battlewagons. With a 32% base fire chance out of her HE shells, she can reliably light enemy battleships on fire and keep them burning for extended periods of time. Thankfully, her AP rounds are perfectly serviceable against enemy cruisers.

LittleWhiteMouse's Premium Ship Review: Ishizuchi from the NA forums


  • Great maneuverability for a battleship.
  • Good health pool for her tier at nearly 50,000 hit points.
  • Best-in-tier reload time of 25 seconds on her main battery.
  • Excellent HE shell performance for her tier.
  • Better-than-average turret traverse for IJN battleships
  • Range is good for a battleship of her tier at 15.3 km
  • Lots of secondary guns; destroyers trying to close with her will get a nasty surprise. Unusually for a battleship, her excellent HE performance and heavy secondary battery make her an effective destroyer hunter.


  • Terrible anti-aircraft suite.
  • Paper-thin armor; most battleships and some cruisers can penetrate her main armor belt.
  • 305mm AP shells are defective historically, and shatter on practically everything.
  • High surface-detection of over 15 km.
  • Abysmal Anti-torpedo protection


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

Optimal Configuration


As a Tier IV ship with access to two of the upgrade slots, the following upgrades are recommended:

Slot 1

Slot 4

  • Damage Control System Modification 1 is the top pick of the bunch, in order to reduce fire and flooding chance on the ship (her fragility ensures she will be subject to above-average damage).

Commander Skills

The following information is provided for players who wish to create a permanent captain for the ship. Those players who are retraining captains or using the ship to gain extra experience for a captain should consult the page relevant to the ship to which the captain will be assigned.


Ishizuchi has access to the Damage Control Party, and Repair Party consumables. Priority for use of premium consumables should be Damage Control Party, and Repair Party, in that order.


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


Ishizuchi is able to mount 8 flags simultaneously.

  • Survivability flags are highly recommended in order to mitigate the damage she will receive in battle.
  • Economy flags are somewhat recommended to boost the returns gained from a premium vessel, but could be used more effectively with higher-tier premium vessels.
  • Flags that buff HE-fire chance are recommended in order to maximize on Ishizuchi's potent HE shells and fearsome fire-chance.
  • Sierra Mike is favourably recommended in order to maximize on Ishizuchi's battlecruiser top speed.
