Battle Levels

Nelson — British Tier VII battleship.

This battleship featured an innovative arrangement designed under the restrictions of the Washington Naval Treaty of 1922. The ship was armed with 406mm main guns that were concentrated in three turrets in the ship's bow. She was the first battleship in the Royal Navy to be armored according to the "all or nothing" concept.

Player Opinion


HMS Nelson is a Tier VII premium British battleship. She is the second premium ship available that is purchased using Free Experience instead of doubloons (the first being Missouri).

Nelson features a main battery of 16-inch guns in a 3x3 configuration with all three turrets forward of the superstructure. Unlike Izumo, Nelson's turrets all face forward, allowing her to shift fire to either side very easily when bow on. Nelson features decent — if low — penetration values on her armor-piercing rounds. This makes them highly effective against enemy cruisers due to their short fuse arming time, but renders them largely ineffective against more armored battleships at range. However, Nelson also has some of the best high explosive shells available to any battleship, with very high penetration and fire chance values. She is able to utilize her HE rounds to easily burn enemy battleships, as well as stripping off AA mounts and damaging other modules.

Nelson also has a unique Repair Party consumable that is similar to those found on Lion, Conqueror and Tier VIII+ British cruisers, enabling her to heal as much as 40% of her total health pool in one use. As such, she is extremely durable with regards to fire damage. However, Nelson has a high citadel, unusual for a British battleship. Her citadel location is similar to the original Iowa and Montana citadel locations that were revised in Update 0.6.6, meaning that she will occasionally take citadel damage (especially through her 25mm bow armor). Her torpedo protection system is quite weak, and with her slow speed and high detection, she lacks the ability to control engagements the way faster ships can. Nelson’s secondaries are also not all that great, and her AA is best described as "adequate" and fit for self defense only.

Overall, Nelson is a strong battleship, with excellent firepower (for her tier) and a high resilience to fire damage balanced by her high citadel, slow speed, and weak torpedo protection.

LittleWhiteMouse's Premium Ship Review: Nelson from the NA Forums


  • Three forward turrets that all turn frontally, allowing for more flexibility in engagements.
  • Fairly decent dispersion aids in punishing broadside cruisers and battleships.
  • Has access to the special Repair Party consumable (Plantilla:Repair Party 1) that can heal massive amounts of health in a short span of time (similar to high-tier British battleships and cruisers).
  • Very good HE shells with high fire chance (46%).
  • Rear secondaries are good enough to deal with the occasional destroyer that sneaks up behind the Nelson.


  • Citadel extends well above the waterline, making it easy for other battleships to citadel.
  • Slow top speed.
  • Horrendously poor deceleration.
  • Underwhelming anti-aircraft suite makes Nelson an easy target for enemy aircraft carriers.


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

Optimal Configuration


The recommended upgrades for Nelson are as follows:

Upgrade Slot 1 provides two useful options. For players who wish to specialize in anti aircraft duties or the secondary battery, Auxiliary Armaments Modification 1 should be mounted. Otherwise, Main Armaments Modification 1 should be chosen.

Upgrade Slot 2 provides options for specialization. For increased gunnery accuracy, Aiming Systems Modification 1 should be equipped. For specialization in anti aicraft duties or the secondary battery, either AA Guns Modification 2 or Secondary Battery Modification 2 should be mounted, depending on the desired specialization.

Upgrade Slot 5 provides two useful options. For increased survivability, Damage Control System Modification 2 is the better choice. However, players who enjoy fighting at close ranges may find Steering Gears Modification 2 to be more useful.

Commander Skills

Nelson's suggested Commander Skills are mostly to be expected, and are highly typical for those found on most Battleships. As she doesn't have particularly excellent qualities, such as the secondary armaments found on Scharnhorst and Gneisenau or the anti aircraft abilities of Hood, it is recommended to invest in survivability skills instead.


As a premium ship, Nelson comes included with Type 10 camouflage that lowers her detection radius, reduces the accuracy of incoming shells, and increases the amount of experience she earns.


As a battleship, Nelson can mount eight signal flags simultaneously. Captains should mount India Delta flags (Plantilla:India Delta) to increase the amount of hit points the repair party consumable can recover. November Foxtrot flags (Plantilla:November Foxtrot) are recommended to reduce the cooldown timers on the ship’s consumables. Captains should also mount Sierra Mike flags (Plantilla:Sierra Mike) to help mitigate the ship’s slow top speed. Lastly, economic and special signal flags can be used to increase the ship’s credit and experience gain per battle.
