World of Warships ST – new German ships

Home News WarGaming news World of Warships

German battleship Ludendorff, Tier IX:

Ludendorff in her concept does not stray far from the classical gameplay characteristics that are unique to German battleships. The ship is equipped with 12 380mm guns and has all the main advantages of her compatriots:

  • Her trademark German hull armor grants effective protection from enemy fire;
  • “Hydroacoustic Search” consumable will help to withstand torpedo attacks.
  • Powerful secondaries and torpedo armament will be an unpleasant surprise for enemy warships in close-range combat.

German aircraft carrier Erich Loewenhardt, Tier VI:

Erich Loewenhardt is the “early” version of Graf Zeppelin, created on the basis of a 1937 project. The concept of this aircraft carrier in some way resembles Saipan – the ship is equipped with powerful for the tier, but small-numbered squadrons with interesting features:

  • Attack Aircraft with AP rockets. These rockets can deal high damage by hitting an enemy ship’s citadel, but when they hit at an acute angle, they can ricochet or simply not penetrate the armor. Rockets fired at broadsided destroyers –with their thin armor– will result in overpenetration that deals only 10% of the rocket’s maximum damage. Armor-piercing rockets can also ricochet against destroyers’ end armor when the ship is bow-in to the planes. 
  • Torpedoes have increased speed in comparison with researchable German carriers.
  • Bombers are equipped with HE bombs, which is not typical for German aircraft carriers. They dive immediately, without the prior altitude gain, just like bombers of researchable German carriers. However, the drop zone is shaped not like an elongated ellipse, but like a circle.

Ludendorff nel suo concetto non si discosta dalle classiche caratteristiche di gioco che sono uniche per le corazzate tedesche. La nave è dotata di 12 pistole da 380 mm e presenta tutti i principali vantaggi dei suoi compatrioti:

  • La sua corazzatura tedesca tipica dello scafo garantisce un’efficace protezione dal fuoco nemico;
  • I consumabili “Ricerca idroacustica” aiuteranno a resistere agli attacchi di siluri.
  • Potenti secondari e armamenti di siluri saranno una spiacevole sorpresa per le navi da guerra nemiche in combattimenti a corto raggio.
  • Portaerei tedesca Erich Loewenhardt, livello VI:

Erich Loewenhardt è la versione “antica” di Graf Zeppelin, creata sulla base di un progetto del 1937. Il concetto di questa portaerei assomiglia in qualche modo a Saipan: la nave è dotata di potenti squadroni per il livello, ma di piccole dimensioni con caratteristiche interessanti:

  • Attacco aereo con razzi AP. Questi razzi possono infliggere gravi danni colpendo la cittadella di una nave nemica, ma quando colpiscono ad angolo acuto, possono rimbalzare o semplicemente non penetrare nell’armatura. I razzi lanciati contro i cacciatorpediniere a larga scala – con la loro armatura sottile – comporteranno un’eccessiva penetrazione che infligge solo il 10% del danno massimo del razzo. I razzi perforanti possono anche rimbalzare contro l’armatura finale dei cacciatorpediniere quando la nave è a prua contro gli aerei.
  • I siluri hanno una maggiore velocità rispetto alle cv tedesche ricercabili.
  • I bombardieri sono equipaggiati con bombe HE, il che non è tipico delle portaerei tedesche. Compiono picchiate immediatamente, senza il precedente aumento di altitudine, proprio come i bombardieri di CV tedesche ricercabili. Tuttavia, la zona di rilascio non ha la forma di un’ellisse allungata, ma come un cerchio.
