King George V — British Tier VII battleship.

Acorazado que da nombre a la Clase King George V. Esta fue la penúltima clase de acorazados completados por la Royal Navy. Diseñados sin las limitaciones del Tratado Naval de Washington se empezaron a construir a partir de 1937 y su botadura fue hasta 1942, constando de cinco buques de los cuales se pueden jugar dos de ellos en World Of Warships, el King George V y el Duke of York. La clase King George V poseía un cinturón blindado excepcional que constaba de una correa blindada desde los 356 mm hasta los 381 mm, solo la clase Yamato poseía un blindaje superior entre los barcos que participaron durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial. Su armamento constaba de 10 cañones de 355 mm mk VII, lo que le proporcionaba una capacidad de ataque formidable, en conjunto a su velocidad relativamente alta y buen consumible de reparación, lo convierten en un barco digno de respeto ante cualquier rival de su nivel.

Player Opinion


Warning. The data presented in the AA Defense sidebar section may be incorrect.
For a graphic summary of ships Tiers VIII thru XI see LittleWhiteMouse's "Actual AA DPS".

The British battleship line takes a curious turn with Tier VII's King George V. As the first class of Royal Navy battlewagons laid down following the London Naval Treaty of 1936, they are an interesting mix of heavy armor, off-caliber main battery guns, solid anti-aircraft defenses, and average speed.

Battleship veterans will immediately take notice of King George V’s 356mm guns. This is an odd caliber for Tier VII — where most other battleship lines have moved on to 381mm guns or larger — and will invariably lead many opponents to underestimate her. This is a grave mistake. While the penetration values on her armor-piercing rounds is sub-par at long range, once ranges drop to 12 or 13 km, King George V’s shells will penetrate the casemate armor of opposing battleships with no issues. She plays similarly to German Tier VII premium Scharnhorst in this regard. Her AP rounds have no issues citadeling enemy cruisers, and her high explosive shells and their 41% fire chance will irritate enemy battleships who believe that angling their armor towards King George V will protect them from incoming damage.

Another similarity that King George V shares with Scharnhorst is a heavy belt armor scheme that is very difficult to penetrate when angled. Like American fast battleships, however, the waterline citadel can be hit quite consistently if she is showing full broadside. She is fairly resilient to incoming fire in most one-on-one situations, but will struggle when focused by several enemies. King George V must pick her battles carefully, using her stealth and speed to sneak away on occasion to regenerate health via her Plantilla:Repair Party consumable.

King George V’s anti-aircraft suite sets the tone for what players will find as they progress up the rest of the line: a weak long-range AA bubble but a punishing mid-range one. The Royal Navy's affection for the 40mm "pom pom" — and, later, the 40mm Bofors — means that incoming dive bombers can expect to take punishing losses to push home a strike, while enemy torpedo bombers are likely to suffer fewer losses. With a top speed of 28 knots, she is fast enough to keep up with friendly cruisers, but unable to outrun them (or the likes of Gneisenau or Scharnhorst).

As long as King George V is not put into positions where she can be focused down by multiple enemies, she is an outstanding ship with a lot of durability, good handling, and solid main battery performance. Driving her straight into a pile of enemy ships relying on her thick belt armor to save her, however, will result in a quick trip back to port.


  • Fastest main battery reload time of non-premium Tier VII battleships (Scharnhorst’s 283mm guns reload faster).
  • Solid anti-aircraft suite, roughly equivalent to American counterpart Colorado.
  • Armor layout will bounce a lot of shells when well-angled, with the thick belt armor shattering most AP shells at medium range
  • High-explosive shells have a extremely high fire chance and can be used to troll enemy battleships who angle themselves well.
  • Best-in-tier concealment for a battleship.
  • Enhanced repair party with shorter cool down and 75% healing of normal penetration damage.


  • The roughly waterline citadel is vulnerable when broadside.
  • Poor firing angles of the rear turret.
  • Armor-piercing shells lose much of their penetration power at long range; they are really only usable at medium range or less when fired at enemy battleships.
  • 25 mm hull plating is susceptible to overmatch by guns with caliber larger than 356 mm.
  • Shortest main battery range of all Tier VII battleships.
  • Like French battleships, the quadruple-barrel turrets mean she is susceptible to having large parts of her firepower knocked out when her turrets are disabled or destroyed.
  • Like German battleships, her dispersion is worse than average.
  • Despite her heavy armor, enemy battleships with guns of 406 mm and above can sometimes penetrate her citadel even through the bow.


Given her need to be able to control engagements — and attempt to disengage, if required — the improved Propulsion module is a good place to invest early experience gains. Take Hull (B) next for the additional hit points, then grab the range boost from the Fire Control System upgrade last.

Optimal Configuration


The recommended upgrades for King George V are as follows:

Another option in Upgrade Slot 4 is Modificación 1 del aparato de gobierno : -20% rudder shift time., for players who prefer increased rudder shift speed over maximizing King George V’s survivability due to the amount of maneuvering required to get KGVs rear gun on target and turn back before being punished.

Commander Skills

While RN BB captains may be tempted to rely on their HE the majority of the time, the utility of AP should not be discounted. As such, Gun Feeder is an extremely useful 1 point skill. Grease the Gears is a good 2 point skill as the turret traverse is rather slow. From there, get Adrenaline Rush at 3 points, then Concealment Expert at 4 points. From there, you can take your pick of AA Gunner or Priority Target if you feel you need the alert, or Emergency Repair Specialist to shave 3% off the reload of your repair party and damage control. Emergency Repair Expert is recommended as it gives you an additional heal and increases the time it lasts, allowing the heal to restore more damage. Fire Prevention is likewise recommended, although could be swapped for either Basics of Survivability and your choice of a 1 point skill, such as Preventative Maintenance or Pyrotechnician, or Super Heavy AP and your choice of a 1 point skill.

In order:

  1. Gun Feeder
  2. Grease the Gears
  3. Adrenaline Rush
  4. Concealment Expert
  5. Emergency Repair Expert
  6. AA Gunner OR Priority Target
  7. Fire Prevention.

Plantilla:Commander Skills 3 BB


King George V can equip the following consumables:

Given her short main battery range, captains are encouraged to utilize Spotting AircraftSigue a su anfitrion y mejora el rango de disparo de la bateria principal. in Slot 3.


Plantilla:TT Ship Camo Insert


Signal flags that maximize King George V’s survivability are recommended, namely India Delta (Plantilla:India Delta), Juliet Whiskey Unaone (Plantilla:Juliet Whiskey Unaone), and India Yankee (Plantilla:India Yankee). November Echo Setteseven (Plantilla:November Echo Setteseven) will provide additional protection against enemy aircraft.
