Statenland is a ship used for testing that is based on Tier VIII Dutch Cruiser De Zeven Provinciën.


British aircraft carrier Theseus, Tier VIII Ship Page

  • Maximum number of torpedo bombers on deck reduced: 10 to 6
  • Number of aircraft in an attacking flight of skip bombers increased from 2 to 3.
    • Total number of planes in the squadron remains unchanged.

Spanish cruiser Almirante Oquendo, Tier IX Ship Page

  • Main battery reload time increased: 12 to 13s.
  • Alternative firing mode reload time increased: 18 to 18.5s.

Pan-American battleships Libertad and Comodoro, Tier X Ship Page

  • HE shell maximum damage increased: 5750 to 6100.

Spanish battleship Victoria, Tier IX Ship Page

  • HE shells removed
  • Standard AP shell parameters have been changed:
    • Maximum damage reduced: 10,650 to 9800.
    • Shell ballistics have been changed — their trajectories will be more arced. As a result, the ballistics on standard and modified shells have become identical.
    • Shell penetration has been significantly reduced.
    • Shell fuse time has been reduced: 0.033 to 0.015 s.
    • The angle at which the check for ricochets is made increased: 45 to 70 degrees.
    • Guaranteed ricochet angle increased: 60 to 80 degrees.
  • Modified AP shell parameters changed:
    • Maximum damage increased: 14200 to 14700.
    • Shell ballistics have been changed — their trajectories will now be flatter. As a result, the ballistics on standard and modified shells have become identical.
    • Shell penetration has been significantly increased.
    • The angle at which the check for ricochets is made reduced: 45 to 30 degrees.
    • Guaranteed ricochet angle reduced: 60 to 40 degrees.
    • Detectability by sea reduced: 16.1 to 14.5km.
      • All other detectability ranges were adjusted accordingly

Currently, WG are considering multiple Victoria ship concepts and besides the previously announced one, WG will also test the current one.

Starting with Update 13.6, WG will begin testing the above-mentioned concept for Victoria. WG will thoroughly evaluate the ship's performance and tester feedback for all concepts of the ship before making the final decision.

In this new iteration, Victoria gets low-damage and low-penetration standard AP shells, which have incredible ricochet angles and reduced fuse timer, making them very similar to SAP shells, but with much more penetration (compared to SAP shells, that is—otherwise penetration is quite low for a battleship shell) and higher chance to hit citadels.

Alternative AP shells, on the contrary, boast very high penetration and damage, but have significantly worse than average ricochet angles, making them only useful against broadside targets, as the shells will start to ricochet even off the slightly angled ships, making them primarily an anti-broadside weapon. To further supplement this gameplay of a "broadside hunter", the ship's concealment was improved.


Kindly be aware that the information provided in this post is tentative. The announced adjustments and features are subject to change throughout the testing phase. The definitive details will be made available on our game's official website.

😃Thank you for your comment, it will be added asap.✅
