World of Warships Supertest: German Tier VIII Premium Battleship Anhalt

4 min read

Historical background

Anhalt is based on the Linienschiff L21a, one of the numerous designs of battleships on which German engineers started working after the battle of Jutland. Out of the various ideas that these designs were exploring was the possibility to fuse the concepts of battleship and battlecruiser into a new type of ship, the so-called fast battleship.

Studies on Linienschiff L21a started in late December 1916. This design called for a displacement of 42 000 tons and a main battery consisting of ten 380 mm guns in five twin turrets.

In World of Warships, Anhalt represents a modified version of the design with fifteen 350 mm guns in five triple turrets. She is also presenting an extensive modernization with a modern superstructure, lengthened bow, and modern anti-aircraft.
Unlike other German battleships, she has no Hydroacoustic Search but she gets underwater torpedo tubes.

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.

Personal Opinion

As of right now, Anhalt looks… alright. It is lacking speed and even though she has 15 guns, she has standard battleship dispersion and low sigma. On top of that, the 350 mm guns are far from brilliant.

As for the torpedoes… even though she has enormous 700 mm torpedoes the damage is as underwhelming as you can get and the firing range is also only 6 km.
