North Carolina — American Tier VIII battleship.

The first U.S. battleship of the new generation. The key advantage over her predecessors of this type was significantly increased speed. In contrast to preceding ships of the same type, she featured a thinner armor belt, but had very solid horizontal armor protection and a superior AA armament including numerous dual-purpose artillery.

USS North Carolina is now preserved as a military museum ship in Wilmington, North Carolina.

Player Opinion

Performance

The biggest transition in American battleship game play, North Carolina is the first fast battleship of the American line. She is a welcome change of pace for players used to the 21 knot top speed of New York, New Mexico, and Colorado, and is a radical departure from the pudgy appearance and mediocre firing range of her dreadnought predecessors.

North Carolina boasts speed, protection, armament, and handling that represent improvements in ship design made over the span of a 15-year gap in American battleship construction that began in the mid-1920's. Her fully upgraded top speed of 28 knots is immediately noticeable, and while other Tier VIII battleships like Bismarck, Tirpitz, and Amagi can still outrun her, the gap in speed is limited to a only few knots. North Carolina is more than capable of keeping up with her team and using her excellent range to begin punishing enemy units while they close.

While North Carolina can fire at long ranges, her dispersion is irritating and the muzzle velocities of her 16-inch, 45 caliber guns are slower than the 50 caliber guns found on Iowa and Montana. Her shells seemingly take forever to return to earth at ranges past 13-14 km, meaning that captains must use additional lead when firing at far off targets. Frustratingly, she cannot equip Aiming Systems Modification 1 to improve her dispersion, either. She has the worst torpedo protection out of all Tier VIII battleships; captains must be very cautious about putting North Carolina into a position where enemy destroyers will focus torpedoes on her.

Still, there are some nice trade-offs. Unlike many ships, her stock configuration is relatively solid, and when fully upgraded her anti-aircraft suite is brutally punishing to enemy planes. When fully-rigged for stealth — via Concealment Systems Modification 1 and the Concealment Expert commander skill — her surface detection range drops to a positively ludicrous 12.1 km. This frequently allows North Carolina to maneuver unseen and strike at unsuspecting cruisers and battleships from an angle they did not anticipate. It also allows her to cease fire and escape when necessary; she is very easy to citadel while broadside to enemy ships (even cruisers!), so care must be taken when turning around under fire.

With careful positioning and heads-up play, North Carolina is an solid all-around Tier VIII battleship.


Pros:

  • Handles very differently from her predecessors.
  • Highest range of any Tier VIII battleship.
  • Unrivaled AA suite at her tier.
  • Very durable when angled.
  • Decently fast at nearly 28 knots.
  • 16-inch guns fire the same super-heavy shells as Iowa and Montana, so the shell penetration and damage are devastating with good hits.

Cons:

  • Rudder shift is fairly slow.
  • Below average armor piercing shell velocity.
  • Dispersion can be unfriendly at times, and she can't mount Aiming Systems Modification 1 to improve it.
  • Large citadel and not as well-armored as Colorado; flashing her broadside to enemy battleships is suicidal.
  • Small volume of secondaries compared to other Tier VIII battleships.
  • Extremely poor torpedo defense at only 19% (compared to Amagi’s 28% and Bismarck’s 22%).

Research

Experience gains should be allocated to Hull (B) first, the Engine upgrade module next, and lastly to the Fire Control System buff to North Carolina’s range.

Optimal Configuration


Commander Skills

Camouflage

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 North Carolina with Type 18 camouflage that lowers her detection radius, reduces the accuracy of incoming shells, reduces her repair costs, and increases the amount of experience she earns.
