​After grinding Colorado for almost 2 month (post-buff) i need 9k exp to get North Carolina.

 

 

​How to use this BB properly? Same playstyle with Colorado?

​Which equipment should I install?

 

Secondary Battery good?

Scout plane or fighter?

​AA module for more range?

Unfortunately, the North Carolina is not a brawler like the Colorado. Its armor is weaker. Keep it angled or bow on to other BBs and only unmask your broadside to fire all guns when you know it is safe to do so. Guns are pretty accurate at 10 to 15km outside of that dispersion combined with RNG make it dicey to hit will all guns.

 

Personal preference dictates how you want to mod the ship. I'm running the Main Battery mod 1, AA mod 2, DC 1, Steering mod 2, TAG mod 1.

 

Since my gun range is 23km, I didn't put the spotter plane on it. I had the range extender mod on it pushing my range to 27km but that really didn't give me good results (RNG and dispersion). The fighter gives me cover in conjunction with my AA batteries.

 

Though she's faster than the earlier US BBs, you still don't want to go it alone in the NC. CV's will lick their chops at wanting to bomb and torpedo you. Though I've only played PvE in my NC, I have fought and killed tier 9 and 10 BBs with the NC. She is a very capable ship and can weather the firestorm of main guns if you present the proper angle protecting your citadels.

 

This is my opinion, I'm sure those with more experience and skill will have something add which I would welcome myself to improve my own skill and game play with this ship and those above it.

I say get AA module instead of range module. It would be very hard to hit at very long range anyway and you would end up getting closer (this will also keep you from camping:angry:). The AA module would make you nearly immortal to same or lower tiered CV and can shrug off some tier 10 planes. Just always angle your ship and avoid pointing your broadside to battleships. Overall NC is a very good ship.

get AA module + AFT = crying CV player. before this ship AA was nerf., i experience crying because all of my planes was shutdown before i can even reach her to drop their payload. my tier 8 USN cv and a tier 9 essex were trying to reset the cap that was capping by a north carolina. i lost all of my bombers while the essex lost a lots of his planes trying to sink this ship. her AA was nerf but its still a formidable AA specially with range upgrade.

n...noo

I want my ship to be OP and other UP *gets slapped

 

 

But yes in all seriousness, NC is very capable, nice accurate 16" guns, and hell co a secondary plus AA, the cons is her weak armour, which needs angling to survive

Once get use to angling Carolina proof quite hard to kill, I even able to go 1 v 1 with any battleships in tier 8-9.

 

In my opinion Carolina is one of the best tier 8 :D:D:D
