Duke of York — British promo premium Tier VII battleship.
Un acorazado de la clase King George V- Comisionado a la Royal Navy en Noviembre de 1941, participo activamente en distintas misiones durante la segunda guerra mundial, en una de ellas incluso sirvió como buque de transporte del Primer Ministro Winston Churchill en su visita a el Presidente Franklin D. Roosevelt en diciembre de 1941. Sirvió activamente durante la campaña de África del Norte. Durante el invierno de 1943 el Duke of York participo e infringió daño al acorazado alemán Scharnhorst lo que facilitó su posterior hundimiento. En World of Warships a diferencia de su acorazado hermano King George V, el Duke of York cuenta con un consumible raro entre los acorazados de la Royal Navy Búsqueda Hidroacústica con sus cañones de 356 mm y el consumible activo, será un barco ágil para esquivar los torpedos que busquen dañarlo, de igual forma sus diez cañones, velocidad y ángulos de disparo harán que los cruceros y acorazados tengan precaución al momento de buscar entablar un combate contra el.
Duke of York Salió a la venta en el 20 de diciembre de 2017.

HMS “Duke of York” es el tercer acorazado premium Tier VII de la Royal Navy en World of Warships. Su lanzamiento en conjunto con los acorazados HMS Hood y HMS Nelson - que sus características los convierten en únicos- el “Duke of York” es un acorazado perteneciente a la clase King George V -barco que es parte de la rama de desarrollo de los acorazados británicos-. Esto hace que sus estadísticas sean similares, si no es que idénticas, al igual que su estilo de juego.
El “Duke of York” tiene un armamento de 356 mm en una disposición única, dos torretas cuádruples -en popa y proa- y una única torreta doble dispuesta en una sobreposición de popa. Esto le da una ventaja insuperable en el poder de fuego frontal del Duke of York en comparación con otros acorazados del Tier VII. Sin embargo, esta disposición de las torretas generan unos ángulos de disparo que en la práctica generan que muestres todo el costado del barco al enemigo -solo si deseas disparar con los diez cañones a la vez-. A diferencia del King George V, el ´´Duke of York tiene un mayor tiempo de recarga de sus baterías principales. Como la mayoría de los acorazados británicos, el Duke of York mantiene una salva AE (HE) fenomenal, pues con su capacidad de penetración y probabilidad de generar incendios lo convierten en un oponente feroz contra los blindajes débiles. Más no por ello debemos de dejar su AP como última opción, pues a corta y mediana distancia tiene una gran capacidad de generar daño a oponentes que muestren su costado.
Duke of Yor tiene características de blindaje idénticas a sus barcos hermanos; 25 mm como parte del casco, y un cinturón blindado de 381 mm. Su cinturón blindado es capaz de protegerlo de salvas de gran calibre cuando se encuentra apropiadamente angulado, sin embargo, al tener un casco de 25mm es extremadamente susceptible de ser incendiado. Su proa al estar blindada con tan solo 25 mm es capaz de ser penetrada por proyectiles de arriba de 380 mm, por ello jugarlo a un ángulo apropiado es necesario.
La precisión de sus torretas deja mucho que desear. La precisión de su batería principal esta a la par de los acorazados alemanes y los acorazados italianos, las salvas en ocasiones pueden ser frustrantes. Montando IDS_TITLE_PCM033_Guidance_Mod_I ayuda a que se mejore su precisión, de igual forma es capaz con la mejora de IDS_TITLE_PCM025_SteeringGear_Mod_II de maniobrar de una forma que te permitirá esquivar el fuego enemigo. Dependerá del estilo de juego del jugador como querrá configurar su barco.
Una de las mayores diferencias entre el Duke of York y el King George V provienen de su capacidad defensiva antiaérea y de su consumible de Ship: Hydroacoustic search, haciéndolo menos propenso a recibir daño de torpedos "sorpresa". Sin embargo, el Duke of York continua siendo parte de la clase King George V, solo que sacrifica tiempo de recarga de la batería principal por un sistema de defensa antiaérea más potente, consumibles y los beneficios al ser una nave premium.
- Un DPS AA mayor.
- Habilidad para el uso de Búsqueda Hidroacustica.
- Un alto poder de daño al usar las salvas HE británicas.
- Un mayor tiempo de reparación comparado a la mayoría de los acorazados.
- Un buen cinturón blindado.
- Ángulos de disparo pobres, que resultan en una mayor exposición al fuego enemigo de las partes vitales del barco.
- Tiempo de recarga mas lento que el King George V, resultando en una posible menor tasa de daño en la batalla.
- No puede montar el consumible de Avión de Detección.
- Su protección antiaérea es efectiva a corto alcance, pero queda expuesto a ataques aéreos de largo alcance.
- Tiempo de giro de timón lento en comparación a otros acorazados del tier.
- Acorazados con artilleria superior a 356 mm. son capaces de penetrar su ciudadela facilmente.
The recommended upgrades for Duke of York are as follows:
- Slot 1: Plantilla:Auxiliary Armaments Modification 1
- Slot 2: Plantilla:Damage Control System Modification 1
- Slot 3: Plantilla:AA Guns Modification 1
- Slot 4: Plantilla:Damage Control System Modification 2*
The majority of Duke of York’s anti-aircraft power is found in her 40mm "pom poms" and 20mm Oerlikons, both of which are highly vulnerable to incoming high explosive shells. As such, Auxiliary Armaments Modification 1 earns the recommendation in Slot 1. Slot 4 could also be filled with Modificación 1 del aparato de gobierno for captains looking to improve her rudder shift speed.
Duke of York can equip the following consumables:
As a premium ship, Duke of York 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 ship with a good AA battery, November Echo Setteseven (Plantilla:November Echo Setteseven)is the best option for the ship. After that signals helping the survivability of the ship, such as India Delta (Plantilla:India Delta), India Yankee (Plantilla:India Yankee), or Juliet Yankee Bissotwo (Plantilla:Juliet Yankee Bissotwo) are always helpful. To increase her offensive capabilities, signals such as Sierra Mike (Plantilla:Sierra Mike), and November Foxtrot (Plantilla:November Foxtrot) will be useful. As she is a premium ship, XP/captain XP boosting flags such as Zulu Hotel (Plantilla:Zulu Hotel), Equal Speed Charlie London (🚫), or the Dragon Flag (Plantilla:Dragon Flag) will see great gains with this ship. Juliet Charlie (Plantilla:Juliet Charlie) is always handy to prevent a quick trip back to port.

The story of the King George V-class battleships is intrinsically linked to the effects of inter-war treaties to curb naval construction. With the Washington Naval Treaty of 1922 imposing a moratorium on new battleship construction through the end of 1931, the Royal Navy's aging battle fleet began to lag behind nations with more modern construction, such as Japan. As the various other naval powers began to ramp up ship construction in the early 1930's, the British Admiralty decided that it could not lag behind any further.
The designs of what would become the King George V class of ships started in 1933. Initially, the government was adamant on pressing ship designs that strictly adhered to treaty limitations, mounting guns with a caliber of 12 inches and limiting to a tonnage of no more than 28,000 tons. The United States and Japan were vehemently against this. By the time of the Second London Naval Treaty in 1936, future battleship limitations were standardized. Gun calibers were to be no bigger than 16 inches with the British delegation pressuring to decrease it to 14 inches. Furthermore, overall tonnage should not exceed 35,000.
With the new limitations in mind, the design of the armaments and protection centered from the idea of ideal combat engagement ranges to be between 11,000-15,000 meters. Through several design reviews, it was decided that the implementation of the revolutionary quad-barreled turret would be the most optimal; the Mk. III turret would be the first of its kind in the Royal Navy. On paper, the advantages were many: it decreased the potential armor profile, it decreased the number of barbettes from four to three, and it maintained high volume of fire. These turrets would house the Mk. VII BL 14-inch guns, which were based on the designs of the experimental Mk. XVI 12-inch guns. By the end, the initial plan of twelve 14-inch guns was decreased to 10; B turret was decreased from quad to dual.
Originally the ship’s secondary armaments were set to be exact to the ones being retrofitted onto the upgraded Queen Elizabeth-class battleships: 4.5-inch dual-purpose guns. But during the development the new 5.25-inch DP guns of the Dido-class were developed and designers reconsidered and incorporated eight of these dual-gun turrets into the final design.
The original armor profile called for a main belt of 13 inches with deck protection of 4 inches. This was deemed insufficient and by the final iteration, the main armor belt was increased to a size of 14-15 inches, while the horizontal armor was moved to the middle deck and increased to 4-5 inches. The belt spanned from the barbettes of "A" turret all the way back to "C" turret, covering magazines and machinery. Lateral coverage spanned from the main deck all the way to 2.5 meters below waterline, where the belt thinned to about 5 inches. The “armored citadel” was complete with bulkheads with thickness of 10-12 inches. Furthermore, a torpedo protection system was incorporated. It was increased from a two-layer to a three-layer system, when the design requirements required damage mitigation up to a blast of 1,000 pounds of TNT. Air-filled spaces sandwiched a central layer that was filled with water – and later – fuel oil.
From the onset, the propulsion was rated for 100,000 shaft horsepower. This required the use of eight Admiralty boilers and four Parsons turbines. Interestingly, each unit of machinery was given its own compartment. A considerable amount of time went into the arrangement of the propulsion; ultimately, each shaft was driven by an independent arrangement of two boilers the fed into one turbine. The arrangement was alternating to decrease the chance of total failure when damaged; the inner-shaft arrangement was the opposite of the outer-shaft arrangement. As well, the final designs called for a two-funnel system. Although there was considerable push for a single funnel system to increase deck-space efficiency, a dual-funnel layout allowed for better gas ventilation, and prevented fumes from re-entering into the machinery spaces. Whilst the original hope was for speeds close to 30 knots, the addition of armor and secondary armaments required the speeds to drop to 27 knots.
By point in development, there were clear signs that there was no adherence to the treaty limit of 35,000 tons of displacement by other naval powers; consequently, King George V’s designers equally didn’t invest much effort into meeting their treaty obligations either. There was an initial effort put in to mitigate excessive tonnage, and as a result "B" turret was decreased to a dual-gun design while the freeboard – along with the bow-angle – was decreased (which proved to decrease seaworthiness and make conditions poorer for crew).
HMS Duke of York (pennant number 17) was the third ship of the King George V class, named after the Duke of York peerage. She was ordered on 16 November 1936, and laid down on 5 May 1937 at the Clydebank shipyards by the John Brown and Company, and launched 28 February 1940.
She was originally fitted with six 8-barrelled 2pdr “pom-poms”, and six single 20mm AA guns. She also carried Type 281, 282, 284, and 285 radar sets. As she was a wartime vessel, she only received wartime-upgrades; as there was no time for remodeling. In 1941, she received a Type 273 radar set to complement the ones above. By 1944, 36 additional 20mm AA guns were installed. By 1945, eight 40mm Bofors guns were added. Furthermore, many of the single 20mm were replaced by dual-mount 20mm. And additional Type 274 radar set was incorporated. Most significantly, the original aircraft facilities – one double-ended catapult and 2-4 Supermarine Walrus' – were removed and repurposed as a boat launching area.
HMS Duke of York was commissioned into the Royal Navy on 4 November 1941, subsequently seeing combat service during the Second World War.
In mid-December 1941, Duke of York transported Prime Minister Winston Churchill to the United States to meet President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Between March and September 1942 Duke of York was involved with convoy escort duties, but in October she was dispatched to Gibraltar where she became the flagship of Force H.
In October 1942, Duke of York was involved in the Allied invasion of North Africa, but saw little action as her role only required her to protect the accompanying aircraft carriers. HMS Duke of York stopped the Portuguese vessel Gil Eannes on 1 November 1942 and a commando arrested Gastão de Freitas Ferraz. The British had picked up radio traffic indicating naval espionage, possibly compromising the secrecy of the upcoming Operation Torch.
After Operation Torch, Duke of York was involved in Operations Camera and Governor, which were diversionary operations designed to draw the Germans' attention away from Operation Husky, the invasion of Sicily. On 4 October, Duke of York operated with her sister ship Anson in covering a force of Allied cruisers and destroyers and the American carrier Ranger, during Operation Leader, which raided German shipping off Norway. The attack sank four merchant ships and badly damaged a further seven.
On 26 December 1943 Duke of York was part of a task force which encountered the German battleship Scharnhorst off the North Cape of Norway. During the engagement that followed, Scharnhorst hit Duke of York twice with little effect, but was herself hit by several of Duke of York's 14-inch shells, silencing one of her turrets and hitting a boiler room. After temporarily escaping from Duke of York's heavy fire, Scharnhorst was struck several times by torpedoes, allowing Duke of York to again open fire, contributing to the eventual sinking of Scharnhorst after a running action lasting ten-and-a-half hours.
In 1945 Duke of York was assigned to the British Pacific Fleet as its flagship, but suffered mechanical problems in Malta which prevented her arriving in time to see any action before Japan surrendered.
After the war, Duke of York remained active until she was laid up in November 1951. She was eventually scrapped in 1957.
