Supertest: German Tier VI Premium Destroyer Karl von Schönberg

3 min read

Historical background

Karl von Schönberg is based on the AG Vulcan Stettin Type 1934 Destroyer design, just like Ernst Gaede.

The design was calling for a 1 500 tons destroyer able to reach 38 knots and armed with four deck-mounted 128 mm (or 150 mm) guns as well as two quadruple (initially triple) torpedo launchers.

The design was later abandoned as the Navy was asking for a 5th gun and longer travel range. However, these requirements couldn’t be met.

In World of Warships Karl von Schönberg is pretty much a copy-paste of Ernst Gaede with 150 mm guns and with some small tweaks to the anti-air. Unlike Gaede, Karl doesn’t have a Smoke Generator or Hydroacoustic Search but instead, a Repair Party (same as high tier British destroyers).

For the classic reminder, this is a ship in testing, anything can change so don’t look at her like she would already be released.

The Armor

Karl von Shonberg presents the classic armor of tier VI destroyers.

Personal Opinion

Well, the ship looks alright-ish. The firepower is, baring the reload time, the same as Gaede with 150 mm which isn’t really good at tier VI and not sure if on a platform like this one I want to lose the Smoke and Hydroacoustic Search just for a Repair Party.
