Side-by-side Battleship comparison

So, I did the comparisons of the two carrier lines, and I'm going to do one for each class. I like seeing the pertinent numbers right next to each other so I can see how each nation stacks up against the others.

This chart is for players who have played a few matches, understand the fundamentals of the game, and want to either get some good performance data to help them choose a line, or to get the quick-and-dirty of what they are up against. I really hope this helps some people understand the differences in the ships, especially if you're a numbers guy like me.


Here is how to read the entries:

[Tier] [ship name]

[hit points] [armor thickness]

[Torpedo Protection (damage reduction)]

[maneuverability value] [speed, in knots]

[# of main turrets X guns per turret] [reload speed/180 degrees turn speed/max. range]

  [High Explosive damage value/chance to cause fire]

  [Armor Piercing damage value]

  [Maximum Dispersion of main turret shots]

[# of secondary turrets]

  [# of turrets in group/reload speed/max range/shell type and damage, chance to cause fire (if any)]

[Anti-aircraft value]

  [# of turrets in group/damage per second of group/max range]


I have edited the chart with colors to better help one determine the best/worst numbers for each tier. Red will indicate that ship has the worst statistic among ships of its class for that tier. Blue will indicate that ship has the highest statistic among ships of its class for that tier. Data left black will mean either the ship is tied with another for highest statistic or ranking that statistic doesn't matter, such as the number of secondary guns. 

Some of the things I did not, or could not, take into account are the number of upgrades you can purchase per ship, the placement of main turrets, special abilities (such as hydroacoustics or spotter planes). If anyone who has played higher tier battleships and knows what sort of special gizmos or whizzfits a ship has, please comment and I will update the chart.

Also, I will not be including premium ships to these comparisons, as they are not part of the advancement lines. I created these to help people choose which line they would like to play, because it was a little overwhelming for me at first and I could not find anything like this.



Also also, all the numbers in the chart for each ship represent the ship when it is fully upgraded and without equipment, camo, or signals. The numbers can be misleading if you are looking at your ship without any upgrades. For instance, the Myogi has a torpedo protection of 0%, until you research and equip the "C" hull upgrade. These disparages are not reflected in the chart, only fully upgraded ships.
