flag Cruiser Special Ship Icon Hildebrand: Tier X German Hybrid Heavy Cruiser

Hildebrand is an O-class battlecruiser converted into an aircraft carrier following the concept close to the “Atlantik Flugzeugkreuzer” project, developed in Germany in 1942.
The ship is named in the same manner as her “sisters-in-WOWS”, Ägir and Siegfried, after the hero of ancient Germanic legends. At the turn of the 19th-20th centuries, the name was borne by one of the Kaiserliche Marine coastal defense battleships.

Key Features

  • Hybrid Capabilities: Hildebrand is unique as a hybrid with access to both torpedo bomber and dive bomber squadrons.
  • Armament and Protection: It boasts a large hit point pool, well-protected citadel, but has a vulnerable hangar and poor concealment.
  • Consumables: The ship is equipped with Hydroacoustic Search, a standard Repair Party, and a special Repair consumable for dive bombers.
  • Tactical Play: Effective use of cover and aviation is crucial, with torpedo bombers being the primary attack force and dive bombers reserved for high-value targets.


  • Effective Armament Use: Utilize both the main battery and aviation squadrons to their fullest potential.
  • Strategic Cover: Employ cover strategically to protect the ship while managing aviation assets.
  • Torpedo Bombers: Rely on torpedo bombers as the primary offensive tool, with fast preparation time.
  • Selective Dive Bombing: Reserve dive bombers for high-value targets due to longer preparation time.

Remember to monitor the minimap closely to identify and engage the most advantageous targets.
