Best division partner for Hindenburg?

My division buddy loves to play his Hindenburg.  I want to hear what kind of experience other players had with different combinations of ships.  He's constantly on the move, so selecting BB often forces us to play far enough to where we can not coordinate our strikes well enough.  I do play Zao and Moskva, and the latter does offer very handy utility in division.  Short of grinding out another Hindenburg, what ship(s) would work best with it?

I would suggest a Destroyer.  Z52, Gearing, YueYang,  

With any division play - having a dd is a priority as it allows for scouting other dd's (in which div mates can back up with firepower) and it helps with cap control (winning the game).

The best in my experience is another HINDENBURG. Also the Gearing or 52 mesh well with Hinden. BB wise the Monty or Conq are good choices as well. The Conq has better detection than Hinden so you can stay within mutual support range of each other fairly easily.

Conq smacks you with fires, whilst the Hindy is dealing consistent AP damage to wittle you down to the point the Conq's fires eventually overcome you.

That's been my experience if you can run a 3 ship Div having a DD in the mix for spotting is a +. My Div mate was in a Hinden I was in a Conq we both had over 200k I had zero kills he ended up with 8. It was a BLAST.

Hmmm, Conqueror, interesting...  In the absence of any free XP ships to spend my excess free XP on, I might as well dump it on Conqueror.

Nah the DD gimps you. The point of the div is all three people working as one. Two Hindy's would be ideal for this kinda situation.

 

Alternatively you can run the "fire family" build. Conq and two Zaos. Or my personal favorite "Ministry of Arson" 3 X Conqs.

I suggest:

  • A non RU DD. Gunboating doesn't add much to the division if you already have a Hindy to do HE+fires
  • AP based non Conqueror BB or Moskva. Hindy AP at range is pretty weak so rounding out the div with more long ranged AP damage is very useful.
  • Radar DD killers Minotaur or Des Moines. Hindy + Radar Mino or DM + DD is a nightmare comp.

in order of best mate...
#1 ANOTHER HINDENBURG
#2  A conquerer, as mentioned for the reasons above.
#3 ANOTHER HINDENBURG..

#4 Hindenburg...
#5 Non RU DD ( Even the Yugo is a great choice even at tier 9 for the stealth and a TRB torp wall of skill)
#6, yup, you guessed it, HINDENBURG...
#7, a DM or even a Minotaur (radar equipped and the ROF to keep them moving around so the HINDY can set fires)
finally I think a Zao.. for all the fires, and a decent torp range for keeping them at least ten KM out....
