König — German Tier V battleship.

El barco se desarrolló a partir de los acorazados de la clase Kaiser. Heredó el blindaje muy potente de sus predecesores. Las torretas principales se colocaron de una manera más racional, lo que permitió al barco disparar desde todo un costado con todos los cañones de las baterías principales.

Player Opinion

Performance

The König is a decent tier 5 battleship with the sloping "turtleback" deck armour protecting the citadel of the ship. The Bow on the König can take a significant amount of armour piercing fire but doing this means that you can only fire four of your ten guns at the enemy. Don`t be fooled by the good armour though, she will succumb to concentrated fire. The guns are decent, but do, in some aspects, leave a bit to be desired especially against battleships as the guns have a low calibre. The guns are still perfectly serviceable against cruisers and the lower calibre does prevent over-penetrations in some cases which makes the König an effective cruiser killer. The high shell speed of the guns and the good accuracy for a German battleship mean that the König is also good at longer ranges, a contrast to the Kaiser before her.

The secondary armament is comprehensive and will discourage most destroyers from closing the distance to you as well as coming in handy in a close quarters fight with another battleship.

The anti-aircraft suite is nothing to sneeze at either and with the c hull you can take some of the sting out of a torpedo bomber squadron but it isn`t good enough to fend of an entire carrier attack.

The concealment is, for a battleship, rather good 14.6km detection range, the stealthiest of any of the tier 5 battleships. This does give you a bit of flexibility when re-positioning.

The manoeuvrability of the König is rather poor as the acceleration and rudder shift are very slow. The top speed is decent at 24 knots which is serviceable.

Pros:

  • The guns, while smaller than her peers, have excellent ballistics, shell velocity and arc, extremely deadly towards cruisers showing broadside
  • Fast reload time at 25 seconds
  • Good shell dispersion for a German Battleship
  • Good AA for her tier, though she cannot fend off air raids on her own
  • Comperhensive secondary armament
  • Best armor and concealment at her tier
  • Decent firing angle despite middle turret placement
  • Decent survivability

Cons:

  • Sluggish maneuverability, difficult to dodge torpedo drops from planes and destroyers
  • While the top speed is decent, acceleration from a stand still is slow and frustrating even for a Battleship
  • Turrets have poor traverse speed, 60 seconds for a full 180 degree turn, but can be upgraded with captain skills.
  • Guns do inconsistent damage towards other Battleships due to its smaller caliber
