Player Opinion


Katori is a Tier III premium Japanese cruiser which many Beta testers may remember as the original Tier I of the Japanese tech tree prior to the introduction of Hashidate. In addition to being moved up two tiers, she gains her Catapult Fighter and torpedo tubes which were missing from her old Tier I configuration. She is unique in that she is the only Tier III ship in the game capable of equipping a Catapult Fighter, allowing her to see over islands and annoy any aircraft carriers she encounters.

Her main battery guns are the standard Japanese 140mm barrels, mounted in two twin turrets (like Yubari) instead of four single mounts (like Tenryu) and Katori can equip Aiming Systems Modification 0 for increased accuracy. Her torpedo tubes have extremely wide firing angles, but she only has one twin launcher per side; while her torpedo mounts reload relatively quickly, they lack the punch to wipe out most ships even if both torpedoes hit home. Katori’s biggest downside is her slow speed, meaning she cannot move anywhere quickly; even some battleships can chase her down. She requires a very patient playstyle, and isn't for captains who are in a hurry to get where they're going.

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


  • Has access to the Catapult Fighter consumable, giving her additional protection from low-tier carrier players and additional ability to spot enemy ships.
  • Best main battery range of any Tier III cruiser (13.5 km).
  • Guns are highly accurate with Aiming Systems Modification 0 equipped.
  • Respectable health pool for a Tier III cruiser; far more health than her tech tree counterpart Tenryu.
  • Above average anti-aircraft suite for her tier.
  • Can launch torpedoes from both sides with good firing arcs (unique for IJN at low tier.)


  • Painfully slow, even when compared to battleships. Only the stock configuration South Carolina is slower.
  • Badly outclassed by two of her most common cruiser opponents: St. Louis and Bogatyr.
  • Standard tier III IJN torpedoes but only 2 launched per salvo.
  • Very weak armor protection.


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

Optimal Configuration

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.


With only two upgrade slots, Katori’s options are somewhat limited, but she has access to an upgrade module that other ships do not. In Upgrade Slot 1, Katori can equip Aiming Systems Modification 0, greatly improving the dispersion of her main battery; this is the recommended choice. Her engine is particularly vulnerable to being disabled; as such, Upgrade Slot 4 is best filled with Propulsion Modification 1.

Commander Skills


Given how easily her engine is disabled under fire, Damage Control Party II is a worthwhile investment. Katori is the lowest tier ship capable of equipping a Catapult Fighter, but it isn't really worth shelling out for the premium version.


As a premium ship, Katori 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.


As this is a premium ship, Katori’s main purpose is to increase retraining speed for captains while allowing the user to enjoy playing the ship with all the commander skills active. Therefore, the following signals are recommended for retraining a captain: Equal Speed Charlie London, Zulu Hotel, and Dragon Flag.

As for normal ship purposes, the following signals are recommended: Sierra Mike (due to the absurdly slow speed), and Victor Lima (to set more fires).

India Bravo Terrathree and Zulu are not recommended because this is a Tier III ship and is a premium; it will not have a significant bonus to credit earning and the ship repair costs are negligible.
