Almirante Oquendo: Tier IX Premium Spanish Heavy Cruiser 1947


flag shipicon Almirante Oquendo: Tier IX Premium Spanish Heavy Cruiser 1947

Almirante Oquendo was a heavy cruiser embodying the "Super Washington" design, with a displacement of 17,500 tons, known as "Proyecto 138." The design was developed in 1938 at the Spanish naval shipyard in Ferrol. Under one of the draft designs, the ship's primary armament comprised twelve 203 mm main guns, but such an ambitious project for Spanish shipbuilding would never come to life because of the state of the country's economy following the devastating civil war.

Key Features

  • Main Battery:
    • Twelve 203mm guns provide a heavy broadside and good damage per minute.
    • Alternative firing mode: Guns become more accurate but with a longer reload time.
  • Speed:
    • Quite fast for a cruiser, allowing quick repositioning.
  • Vulnerable Citadel:
    • Be cautious of enemy battleships and heavy cruisers due to the vulnerable citadel.
  • Consumables:
    • Defensive AA Fire and Hydroacoustic Search (shared slot).
    • Choice between Fighter or Spotting Aircraft.
    • Repair Party for restoring hit points.


  • Ambush Predator:
    • The Almirante Oquendo excels as an ambush predator. Her accurate main battery allows her to strike unsuspecting enemies effectively.
  • Positioning:
    • Play behind friendly destroyers to control key areas. Destroyers can spot enemies and provide cover for your cruiser.
    • Use the Almirante Oquendo’s speed to your advantage. Position yourself in unexpected spots to catch enemy cruisers off guard.
  • Survivability:
    • Be cautious during extended engagements. The Almirante Oquendo’s poor survivability means that prolonged battles can be risky.
    • Enemy battleships pose a significant threat due to their heavy firepower. Avoid exposing your vulnerable citadel to their salvos.
