Lion — British Tier IX battleship.

The last British battleship designed and laid down before the breakout of World War II. In many respects, the ship was a development of the King George V-class ships, but, unlike her predecessors, she had greater dimensions, heavier armor, and modern 406 mm main guns.

Player Opinion


Lion has the ability to roar into action anywhere on a map to protect her cubs. Her low concealment makes her great at stalking and pouncing on unsuspecting prey. Keep in mind that even the mightiest of predators can fall victim to coordinated attacks. Therefore, she is best played at the head of her pride, able to be reinforced as needed. Her gameplay is very similar to that of the Iowa, with the added benefit of a strong Repair Party consumable. Use islands to mask your movements as you continue to advance and put pressure on the enemy. At the right moment, pounce!


  • Great armor piercing shell penetration - sinking her teeth into the toughest of enemy skin.
  • High chance of fire with high explosive shells - her roar sets enemies ablaze.
  • Ability to change course quickly - exploiting weaknesses in her prey.
  • Great concealment - she can hide in plain sight and silently observe.
  • High healing capability - hurting her will only make her stronger when combined with the Adrenaline Rush commander skill.
  • Decent anti-air weaponry allows her to avoid aircraft that attempt to sting her.


  • Weak side - her vulnerable to broadside hits from enemy battleships.
  • Long body - making her difficult to dodge torpedoes.
  • Thin skin - very low hit points compared to other tier IX battleships as well as a lower Torpedo Defense System.
  • Medium top speed - not fast enough to hunt every ship, instead forced to pounce on her prey rather than chase.


Lion begins her life with decent teeth, but she is very weak to enemy air attacks. Therefore, it is probably best to focus on upgrading her hull first. With this, she can take more hits and be more effective on the battlefield. Afterwards, it depends on the player's style. For players who like to run and gun, the engine modification would be next, followed by gun fire control system, and finally main battery. For players who prefer to hunt and pounce on their unsuspecting prey, upgrade the ship's main battery first, followed by engine, and finally gun fire control system. Only a fully matured Lion can rule the pride.

Optimal Configuration


Commander Skills


Lion should always invest in her hunt with premium Damage Control Party, Repair Party, and Aircraft consumables. Spotting Aircraft II enables for better vision, enabling her to mangle prey. Catapult Fighter II also gives some vision, but is mainly designed to swat away the fleas and ticks at bay. Played properly, lion always repays her debts.


Never send Lion into battle naked. Most camouflages in the game come with a -3% to detectability buff, aiding with the hunt. In addition, most camouflages also come with a +4% to enemy dispersion, making it harder for them to pierce your skin. If it is time for Lion to grow up and conquer, equip camouflages with 100% to xp bonuses as well.
