Supertest: German Tier IV battleship Viribus Unitis

A new premium battleship has arrived my friends. Let’s discover what this beast of steel is packing!

It is important to mention something before starting to talk about the ship. As you may know, Wargaming is planning to implement a Pan-European “tech tree” and due to this, some premium ships will be relocated. It is the case for the Viribus Unitis.

The Viribus Unitis (“With United Forces”) is the first ship of the Austro-Hungarian Dreadnoughts Tegetthoff class that remains the only class of dreadnought battleships ever built by the Austro-Hungarian Navy. Built between 1910 and 1914, this class was composed of 4 ships: SMS Viribus Unitis, SMS Tegetthoff, SMS Prinz Eugen, and SMS Szent István. All the ships served during World War I but only The Tegetthoff and the Prinz Eugen survived the conflict. The Szent István was sunk by a motor torpedo boat in June 1918 and the Viribus Unitis, freshly transferred to the State of Slovenes was sunk after hitting a mine during the Raid of Pola in November 1918.

Overall, during the war, the ships  saw little combat due to being blocked in the Adriatic Sea by the Otranto Barrage.

  1. Glad to see this, but… As born Hungarian I would been more than happy to see the sistership Szent István (Holly Stephan, after the first christian king of Hungary). OK, I know the Szent István was the most misfortunate battleship ever, but please, she was the flagship of the Hungarian Navy within the KundK. Gimme us, please, at least this tiny winy satisfaction.

  2. It also makes me very happy to see this beautiful ship ship here. As an Austrian, of course I find it best to see Viribus Unitis herself here and not one of her three sisters. After all, it was Austria-Hungary, not Hungary-Austria 😉 Yet Szent Istvan could make for a nice premium variant!

    1. Midway, let stay by Viribus Unitis, because it was Austro-Hungarian Empire of equals. 🙂 And two (2) premium battleships: SMS Tegetthoff or SMS Prinz Eugen, and SMS Szent István. Then we both are satisfied!

      1. Excellent plan, dear neighbour! As an added incentive, I suggest we give SMS Prinz Eugen as a bonus to all who collect the other three 🙂 Plus, additional torpedo belt protection (radar seems a bit overkill at tier 4…) for all four of them, against potentially sneaky early-morning attacks!
