Best US ship for Alexander Ovechkin?

I'm wondering what the best US ship is for the American version of Alexander Ovechkin? He has bonuses on Expert Marksman, and Survivability Expert, 

Currently, I'm running him on my Georgia, but I don't think that's the best fit. 

I would like to switch him over to a new ship on an upcoming captain respec, and I'm curious as to what people think would be the best fit for him.

Thanks!

Expert Marksman and SE are basically a DD combo of skills, though higher tier USN DDs don't really need EM.  The Ovechkin captain is probably better suited for use on Russian DDs.  But seeing as you asked about the USN version, I'm not sure that there's a good answer.  Maybe if you have a mid tier USN DD that you want to keep, that might be a good ship for Ovechkin, since mid tier USN DDs' turret rotation isn't superfast.

However, if you only want to use one of the two upgraded skills, your options would open up greatly.  Upgraded SE would be great for any DD, while upgraded EM would be great on any ship where you would use that skill.

IMO, for US ships, Overchkin best belongs on a Destroyer.  He is the only one of the special USN captains that feature a buffed Survivability Expert.  Every other Unique USN Captain has Expert Marksman.  Halsey and both John and George Doe all have EM.

You don't need SE on Cruisers and Battleships but DDs need every bit of HP they can get.

I have him on USN DD's ... currently Farragut, and switch out with Sims for training.  Don't use EM, just SE. 

On the Russian version I use both skills.

I'm getting EM and SE for the US Ovechkin. He will end up on Gearing when I get it. That will give Gearing a traverse like Fletcher.

I run him on my Salem just to give me a bit more leeway to rise from near death, but he really belongs on a gunboat DD.

I've got one of the special American commanders in my Alaska.. rapid loader at 75% works great with battlecruisers. I use Ovechkin with destroyers for the reason others mention above.

Farragut! He also runs my Monaghan and Hill.

A match made in...somewhere.

Any US premium will do except Enterprise

Actually......SE is the perfect skill for CVs....  the only unique captain skill worth a dam for CVs....

I don't use proper US DDs, so Omaha but built for my laundry list of US DDs. I think I have them all until Somers comes out. :Smile_veryhappy: I'm sure he'd also be great in Clemson, too.

As soon as I got the Alaska, placed him there.
