  • Main battery reload time increased: 4.5 to 7 s.
  • Changes to Combat Instructions:
    • Bonus to reload time increased: 20% to 66% faster
    • Removed bonuses to ship speed and acceleration rate

    • The Combat Instructions meter now fills by 10% every 5 seconds the ship remains undetected
    • The progress bar starts to decay 30 seconds after being detected by the enemy
    • Decay rate: 10% for every 5 seconds the ship remains detected

The gameplay concept for Almirante Grau rests on her guns and good concealment values. The updated Combat Instructions will better suit this concept. However, in order to balance them out, the ship’s standard main battery reload time was increased.

The Almirante Grau was completed for the Royal Netherlands Navy in 1953 as HNLMS De Ruyter. After two decades in service, she was decommissioned in 1973, and in the same year the Peruvian Navy bought the ship as a counter to the acquisition of the Swedish cruiser Gota Lejon by the Chilean Navy.
Renamed Almirante Grau, in honour of the Peruvian Admiral Miguel Grau, she arrived to its new homeport of Callao on July 11, 1973. The Almirante Grau became fleet flagship replacing a former cruiser of the same name (the ex-HMS Newfoundland) which was renamed Capitán Quiñones.

Key Features

The main feature of the ship is the presence of Combat Instructions. When activated, they reduce the main battery reload time and improve both the ship's acceleration and manoeuvrability.
The ship has weak armour, which is compensated by her access to an improved "Repair Party" consumable, which restores 50% of citadel damage received and has an enhanced HP recovery rate. Almirante Grau can also equip either "Hydroacoustic Search" or "Defensive AA Fire" in one consumable slot.
