flag Prins Van Oranje - Dutch Tier X Special Cruiser 1947

Evolving from Project 1047, this battlecruiser emerged in the late 1930s to confront the Japanese Navy in the Dutch East Indies. The ship featured a distinctive armament set—her main battery was represented by twelve 234 mm guns in quadruple-gun turrets. The main battery guns were built based on British technology, highlighting the close collaboration between Great Britain and the Dutch Navy during World War II.

Key Features:

Fans of Gouden Leeuw will certainly recognize this ship: similar to her sister, she's quite well armored, boasts a nasty AA suite, has access to a high-damage HE Bomb Airstrike, and features excellent concealment. However, she differs in some key aspects. Her main armament consists of twelve 234mm guns in three quadruple turrets, making her more of a traditional heavy cruiser. While she does have access to the signature Dutch airstrike, hers will have a longer range and deal more damage. To balance things out, it will feature longer cooldown and arrival times, thus shifting her focus more toward her main battery. Her consumables are represented by Hydroacoustic Search and Defensive AA Fire in different slots.


Prins Van Oranje will play most effectively in open waters, using her excellent concealment, heavy broadside, and good ballistics to engage and destroy the enemy. She can effectively support friendly destroyers from behind with her guns, and while her airstrike may be difficult to lead, it can be quite effective at digging out stationary enemy positions. However, captains will want to be cautious of enemy torpedoes due to her poor manoeuvrability, and extended fights with enemy battleships may not go her way.
