Mainz Tier VIII German Cruiser - Back In The Premium Shop


German Cruiser VIII Mainz 1936

Main Characteristics of Mainz
The project of a cruiser with 150 mm guns (cruiser K), which was developed in the mid-1930s on the basis of the Admiral Hipper-class ships, shortly after the construction of the latter began. She combined the rapid-fire battery of light cruisers with the survivability of heavy ones.
Key Features:
* Twelve 150 mm guns placed in four turrets. The cruiser boasts artillery with a flat ballistic trajectory and short reload time of just 6 seconds
* Four quadruple-tube torpedo launchers will provide you with effective means to destroy your enemy in close quarters combat. Torpedo range—6 km
* Access to the Hydroacoustic Search consumable. Ship-spotting range—6 km; torpedo-spotting range—4 km
* She has a decent AA defense System for her tier, which is additionally enhanced with the Fighter and Defensive AA Fire consumables. The latter can be mounted instead of Hydroacoustic Search
* She is slow for a light cruiser: maximum speed—32 knots
* She earns more credits per battle, and her permanent camouflage adds a 50% XP bonus per battle and reduces the Credit cost of the ship's post-battle service by 10%
If you already have this ship in your Port, you will receive icon11,000 as compensation.
Mainz Flag
