Ever wondered what would happen if the Großer Kurfürst had a baby? Welcome to World of Warships, Pommern. I will be giving you my thoughts about this fantastic Premium ship, and even might convince you to buy it.
The Pommern is a Tier 9 Premium German Battleship which was recently introduced into the game. Every time I play her, I always get Kurfurst vibes. Although she has smaller calibre guns, and lower health pool, I always feel like I'm playing the Kurfurst. Maybe it's because of her impressive Secondary Guns. It's not quite the GK armament, but it's pretty darn good for it's tier. She has an 8x2 105mm Secondary setup with a default ranger of 7.6km, which is pretty normal for any German Battleship, as they are renown for Secondaries. I would consider her strength in engagement would be short-medium range, this is because of two reasons. Firstly her Secondaries, and secondly her main guns. Her main guns aren't particular powerful. I mean they can pack a punch at a close broadside, but they're only 380mm. So from afar, it can be a problem, especially with her poor dispersion and low sigma as well. You need to be a brawler with this ship, and you can succeed. To top it off, she has torpedoes.
Armour-wise, shes quite well protected, especially with the 'turtle-back armour'. Expect to take a few fires as her super-structure is rather noticeable, and you can't miss it. She is pretty nippy for a BB, with a default top speed of 31knots, so getting away from certain scenarios can be accomplished especially having Hydro which can spot torps.
Like I said, this ship should be played with a brawler type style.
