Montana — American Tier X battleship.

One of the largest battleships in the world. She was slightly inferior to the Iowa-class ships in terms of speed, but had more main guns and significantly stronger torpedo protection. Montana’s armor was conventionally arranged and considerably reinforced.

Player Opinion


Tier X's Montana is, at first glance, basically a supersized Iowa with an additional triple mount turret and thicker belt and deck armor. Her offensive capability relies on her heavy broadside to smash enemy battleships or destroy anything smaller should the rounds connect. She also has an extremely powerful anti-aircraft suite and is more than capable of protecting herself from lower tiered aircraft carriers, but will likely require the assistance of teammates to fend off a determined strike by a Tier X flattop.

While she can reach a top speed of 30 knots, her large size and slow rudder shift time make her vulnerable to torpedo attack. Further, her main battery of 16-inch guns are not able to overmatch the 32mm thick bow armor found on most Tier IX and X battleships like Yamato’s main battery can. This means that Montana captains may sometimes be forced into firing high explosive shells at well-angled enemy battleships.

The dispersion of her main guns has been improved since the game launched, but her dispersion is still worse than Yamato’s even after the Artillery Plotting Room Modification 2 upgrade is installed. They are, however, more accurate than Großer Kurfürst’s main battery at range while having a slower turret traverse (45 seconds versus Kurfürst’s 40 seconds). Her secondaries are not as numerous as those of her Tier X counterparts, but they are better armored. This means that cruisers firing purely high explosive rounds are far less likely to destroy her secondary battery turrets, something that Yamato and Kurfürst cannot claim. Additionally, they have have the best rate of fire and the highest fire chance of all Tier X battleship secondary guns.

Montana is a ship that does not excel at any one thing for a battleship (most players don't count AA as it is purely a defensive ability). With that said, in a close-range fight she will easily outpace Yamato’s turret traverse (but not that of Kurfürst), while at range she will be more accurate than Kurfürst (but not as accurate as Yamato). Flexibility is her strength, but it is also her weakness.


  • Twelve main battery guns generally means that something will hit even if a captain's aim is slightly off.
  • Can seriously damage destroyers without swapping ammunition simply due to volume of shells.
  • Phenomenal broadside killing power exceeds Yamato and can one-salvo anything that floats; losing or masking a turret still leaves her with Iowa broadside firepower.
  • One of the best anti-aircraft suites in the game.
  • Secondaries have the best fire chance (9%) and rate of fire (4 rounds per second) of Tier X battleships.
  • Quick turret traverse speed.
  • Two turrets still deliver 6 shells, allowing Montana to fire effective salvos at two targets simultaneously.
  • Faster than her Tier X counterparts.
  • Unparalleled flexibility when compared to her Tier X counterparts.


  • Uses same guns as Iowa, no real upgrade for a ship one tier higher.
  • Dispersion is frustrating even with Artillery Plotting Room Modification 2 is equipped.
  • Very sluggish to accelerate.
  • Bow armor is overmatched by Yamato’s 460mm shells. Belt armor angling can still work but is shells will sometimes randomly sneak through anyway.
  • Inferior to Yamato due to smaller caliber and armor value
  • Inferior to Großer Kurfürst due to smaller caliber and unable to be as tanky as the Großer Kurfürst as well as Großer Kurfürst has better secondary than Montana.
  • Smallest gun caliber of all the Tier X battleships.
  • Somehow she can caught fire easily.
  • Very large superstructure and having low armor for its superstructure, therefore broadside to Cruiser such as Minotaur is suicide.
  • AA is outstanding but is not permanent since they can be destroyed by enemy HE shells.
  • AA advantage is only useful in match that has carrier.
  • AA still relied on RNG to shot down planes, sometimes she has difficulties in shooting down tier 10 planes.
  • Largest citadel among tier 10 Battleships, though they are below the water line.


As a Tier X ship, Montana doesn't have any upgrades to research.

Optimal Configuration


Maximizing Montana’s stealth is never a bad choice. With the Concealment Expert commander skill, Concealment Modification 1 in Upgrade Slot 6, and appropriate camouflage, her detection range drops down to 13.4 km. While still long enough for destroyers or cruisers to spot her before she is spotted, it gives Montana more leeway for turning due to the placement of her citadel. Steering Gear Modification 2 is recommended in Upgrade Slot 5 and will reduce her rudder shift time down to 17.8 seconds.

Upgrade Slot 3's best choice is Artillery Plotting Room Modification 2 to give her guns more accuracy; this will make it so that at ranges of ~12-13 kilometers Montana is exceptionally accurate, much more so than either of her contemporaries due to how dispersion works. In this configuration, she gives up damage to battleships that have equipped Main Battery Modification 3 to improve their rate of fire at the expense of her turret traverse. Main Battery Mod 3 will improve Montana’s damage-per-minute — already the highest of the Tier X battleships — and may surprise a cruiser who still expects her to be reloading.

Upgrade Slot 2 offers several options. AA Guns Modification 2 will boost her maximum AA bubble out to 6.2 km (7.5 km if stacked with the Advanced Firing Training commander skill), while Secondary Battery Modification 2 will boost the range and accuracy of her secondaries instead, and with captain skills and flags those can reach out to 9.1 km. Artillery Plotting Room Modification 1 will increase her already impressive range and give her secondaries a slight boost in range and accuracy, but is a weaker choice than the other two.

Upgrade Slot 1 is most commonly filled with Main Battery Modification 1, though Auxiliary Armaments Modification 1 is a popular pick for captains who go for a full AA build with her other upgrades and commander skills. Damage Control System Modification 1 is the easy pick for Upgrade Slot 4.

Commander Skills


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.

Players who wish to spend doubloons can equip Montana with Type 20 camouflage that lowers her detection radius, reduces the accuracy of incoming shells, reduces her repair costs, increases her credit earnings, and increases the amount of experience she earns.
