Leander — British Tier VI cruiser.

Un crucero ligero de nueva generación diseñado para servir como explorador tanto en escuadrones como de manera independiente. En contraste con sus predecesores, la principal ventaja del barco era que sus cañones principales estaban colocados en torretas para cañones. El barco también poseía una defensa AA más fuerte y una mejor protección blindada.

Player Opinion


Tier VI brings a new shift in British light cruiser gameplay, as Leander takes the lessons learned from Caledon through Emerald and applies them to a more well-equipped vessel. Leander is fairly stalwart cruiser for her tier, capable of mercilessly smashing enemy destroyers, holding her ground against her cruiser contemporaries, and providing fire support as needed.

Captains familiar with Tier VI American cruiser Cleveland will feel at home in Leander. She exemplifies a ship that friendly destroyers love to ride shotgun with and enemy destroyers try their hardest to avoid (or destroy). Leander can take a fair bit of punishment from lighter enemy units due to her access to the Repair Party consumable, and while she lacks Aoba’s big guns and envies the range of Budyonny and Nürnberg, she's a fairly solid cruiser for her tier. Her upgraded torpedoes go a long way towards closing the gap between her and her contemporaries when they are used well. Her torpedo firing arcs are excellent.

Unfortunately, Leander needs to get almost suicidally close — her stock range is a paltry 12.0 km — in order to get her main battery into action, greatly increasing the risk involved when she engages enemy destroyers who have support nearby. While she can mount a Spotting Aircraft to temporarily increase her range, doing so requires her to give up Smoke Generator and a chunk of her longevity with it.

Leander is a ship that functions best with friends close by, especially given her vulnerability to battleships. She has very little she can threaten them with as long as they angle well against her armor-piercing rounds and avoid her torpedoes.



  • Shortest main battery range of all Tier VI cruisers.
  • Lack of high explosive shells makes damaging enemy capital ships very challenging.
  • Anti-aircraft suite is on par with Aoba and Budyonny, but cannot be made more potent with Defensive AA Fire.
  • Damage from armor piercing salvos is consistent, but not spectacular. Leander has a very low alpha-strike damage potential.
  • Struggles to penetrate any bow on destroyer


Given the paltry stock range of her main battery, the Fire Control System upgrade should be the first place experience gains are invested. After that, grab Hull (B) and the Torpedo upgrade (in that order).

Optimal Configuration


Main Battery Modification 1 is the recommended choice for Upgrade Slot 1. Aiming Systems Modification 1 is the top choice for Upgrade Slot 2, but AA Gun Modification 2 is far from a bad choice for captains wishing to hedge their bets against enemy carriers. Damage Control System Modification 1 is likely the best choice for Upgrade Slot 4, though some captains will opt for Propulsion Modification 1 to improve the reliability of her propulsion plant. Steering Gears Modification 2 is the best option in Upgrade Slot 5.

Commander Skills


Players can equip the following consumables on this cruiser: Damage Control Party, Repair Party, Hydroacoustic Search, and a choice between Smoke Generator, Spotting Aircraft, or Catapult Fighter.

Leander is very lightly armored for a Tier VI cruiser — especially compared to her contemporaries Budyonny and Cleveland — and will need to make good use use of the Repair Party and Smoke Generator consumables. Captains are recommended to invest in the premium versions of both for better survivability. Premium consumable Hydroacoustic Search will also help in hunting down destroyers and spotting torpedoes from within a smoke screen, as enemy players frequently send torpedoes into smoke banks hoping to hit stationary ships hiding within. Catapult Fighter is not recommended due to the little protection it provides and Spotting Aircraft would provide only a small bonus to her already meager range.


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.


Again, due to Leander’s weak armor scheme, captains are encouraged to mount the following signals for better survivability: India Delta, India Yankee, and November Foxtrot. Additionally, Equal Speed Charlie London can be used to quickly grind to the much-needed Fire Control Systems module upgrade (Mk VI mod. 2), as her stock range is abnormally low for a Tier VI cruiser.
