Destroyer
They Carried powerfull Torpedo Armament and Smoke Screen 
althought they have gun dont use it to hunt enemy battleships and Cruiser use it if you think you can beat them but im not reccomended 

your main role is Capping the control point / base or spotted enemy fleet after capping
your second objective is hunt enemy carrier or Battleships
but your most priorty is capping the control point or capping enemy base~

they has the lowest Concealment .. because her small body ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) (this is not lolicon right?)

when you play DD 
if you
~On Russian DD you use your gun to hunt enemy ships under 10km around that while you on moving...... to avoid enemy fire..... 
they has the highest concealment among other DD 
if you on highest tier DD like Grozovoi she has powerfull AA but if you taking Khabarov path she has Repair Party

~On
British DD 
so far its on premium ships only like camble town and gallant 
your main weapon is gun but you can focus on torpedo since your concealment is support that....
also their HE chance of fire is good.....

~On USA DD
you can either focus on Gun boat and Torpedo Boat since their style is balance.... but the main unique about this DD is you can equip with Defensive AA fire also without that your AA stats already powerfull 

~On Japanese DD 
the most powerfull Long range Torpedo and also your main weapon is Torpedo since it has longest range with lowest concealment except Shimakaze 5.9 while gearing 5.8 and akizuki compete with benson 5.8 and loyang 5.8

but shimakaze has the longest torpedo range among other DD in the game 
its carries 20km torpedo range

~On Poland DD
they role is same either you can focus on torpedo boat or gun boat since her role is almost same with russian DD 

~On Pan Asian
coming soon 
so far i know its carried Deep Water torpedo which has the lowest concealment among other regular torpedo but it cant hit Destroyer 
also on highest tier tier 10 DD pan asian DD has the lowest concealment and also ontier 8 to 10 you can either replace the smoke screen with radar....

~On German DD
has the shortest time Smoke screen so far.....
has powerfull gun on tier 6 and 8 you can equip her with 150mm gun and they had Hydroacoustic 

~On Australia DD
coming soon 
so far only HMS Vampire but its still under development


tips
use your smoke wisely since on highest tier has Radar and hydro 
dont hide in smoke to long since smokescreen is torpedo magnet..... 
 
 
Aircraft Carrier 
Your Role is Spotted enemy fleet with your carrier borne plane such as Fighter Squadron
Torpedo Bomber and Dive Bomber Squadron
and deal heavy blow on enemy battleships and lonely ships also naughty DD

your main Attack is Torpedo Bomber and Dive Bomber
but your main Interceptor is your Fighter Squadron 

if you play as Carrier you will play like Strategy game ..... you control plane to move and attack target ..... you cannot attack enemy ships with fighter but you can attack enemy ships with bomber (dive bomber or torpedo bomber)

from tier 8 to 10 you will gain Defensive AA Fire

so far the only nation has carrier in world of warships 
Japan 
Usa
German

if you play
Japan Carrier has 1 premium carrier 
your main hitter is Torpedo bomber since their carry powerfull torpedo unit althought they has the smallest number per squadron 4 unit per squadron except Kaga she has 6 torpedo bomber per squad and 6 dive bomber per squad (7 if you using air superiorty) but her figther is 4 per squad (5 if you using sair superiorty)
if you choose air superiorty you get 5 fighter per squadron and 5 bomber per squadron 
the torpedo bomber stay same... 4 torpedo bomber per squadron
but your fighter is weaker than USA counterpart and your plane easy to get destroy than usa.....
but to cover that..... 
Japan carrier has lot of squadron in the highest tier on 
tier 4 Hosho you has 3 squadron 1 fighter and 2 torpedo bomber

tier 5 Zuihou you has 4 squadron 1figther 1 torpedo bomber 2 dive bomber or 4 squadron 1 figther 2 torpedo bomber and 1 dive bomber

on tier 6 you can use straffing and manual drop its also available on tier 7 8 9 10

tier 6 Ryujou you has 4 squadron 1 figther 1 torpedo bomber 2 dive bomber or 5 squadron 3 figther 1 torpedo bomber and 1 dive bomber or 5 squadron 1 figther 2 torpedo bomber and 2 dive bomber

tier 7 Hiryu you has 5 squadron 1 figther 2 torpedo bomber and 2 dive bomber or 6 squadron 2 figther 2 torpedo bomber and 2 dive bomber or 6 squadron 3 figther 1 torpedo bomber and 2 dive bomber

Tier 7 Kaga you has 5 squadron 2 figther 2 torpedo bomber and 1 dive bomber or 5 squadron 1 figther 1 torpedo bomber and 3 dive bomber
Kaga has the low Tier plane (tier 6 plane ) but her plane is weak against other carrier 
but she has the largest hangar size of any Tier VII aircraft carrier at 85 planes
but she has unique drop pattern torpedo 
The drop pattern of her torpedo squadrons can be difficult to dodge, especially for larger ships

tier 8 Shoukaku you has 5 squadron 1 figther 2 torpedo bomber and 2 dive bomber or 6 squadron 2 figther 2 torpedo bomber and 2 dive bomber or 6 squadron 3 figther 1 torpedo bomber and 2 dive bomber

Tier 9 Taihou you has 6 squadron 2 figther 2 torpedo bomber and 2 dive bomber or 7 squadron 2 figther 3 torpedo bomber and 2 dive bomber or 7 squadron 3 figther 2 torpedo bomber and 2 dive bomber

Tier 10 Hakuryu you has 7 squadron 2 figther 3 torpedo bomber and 2 dive bomber or 8 squadron 2 figther 3 torpedo bomber and 3 dive bomber or 8 squadron 4 figther 2 torpedo bomber and 2 dive bomber

USA carrier has 2 premium carrier
if you play this carrier branch your main attacker is Bomber and your figther is power full 
not like japan carrier 
her unit squadron is big but has little squadron except Saipan has 3 figther 3 torpedo bomber and 8 dive bomber (4 fighter and 9 dive bomber if you using air superiorty)
while on usual carrier squadron is 6 per squad (7 fighter and 7 dive bomber if you using air superiorty)

tier 4 Langley you has 3 squadron 1 fighter and 1 torpedo bomber 1 dive bomber

tier 5 Bogue you has 3 squadron 1 figther 1 torpedo bomber 1 dive bomber or 3 squadron 1 figther and 2 dive bomber

on tier 6 you can use straffing and manual drop its also available on tier 7 8 9 10

tier 6 Independence you has 3 squadron 1 figther 1 torpedo bomber 1 dive bomber or 4 squadron 2 figther and 1 dive bomber or 3 squadron 1 torpedo bomber and 2 dive bomber

tier 7 Ranger you has 3 squadron 1 figther 1 torpedo bomber and 1 dive bomber or 4 squadron 2 figther and 2 dive bomber or 4 squadron 1 torpedo bomber and 3 dive bomber

Tier 7 Saipan you has 4 squadron 2 figther and 2 torpedo bomber or 4 squadron 3 figther and 3 dive bomber 
Saipan has the only Tier 9 plane than the other carrier but change for that she has the smallest number per squadron 3(4 if with air superiorty).... except her dive bomber 8(9 if with air superiorty)

tier 8 Lexington you has 3 squadron 1 figther 1 torpedo bomber and 1 dive bomber or 4 squadron 2 figther and 2 dive bomber or 4 squadron 1 torpedo bomber and 3 dive bomber

tier 8 Enterprise you has 6 squadron 2 figther 2 torpedo bomber and 2 dive bomber 
Enterprise is very unique since you can choose your Dive bomber with HE Bomb or AP Bomb
At 96 planes, Enterprise has the largest hangar capacity of any Tier VIII carrier.
Has access to Upgrade Slot 3, allowing her to mount upgrades usually reserved for Tier IX and X carriers. But the fighter squadrons contain only four planes instead of the six that the dive bomber and torpedo bomber squadrons have.

Tier 9 ESSEX you has 4 squadron 2 figther 1 torpedo bomber and 1 dive bomber or 5 squadron 1 figther 1 torpedo bomber and 3 dive bomber or 5 squadron 3 figther and 2 dive bomber


Tier 10 Midway you has 5 squadron 2 figther 1 torpedo bomber and 2 dive bomber or 5 squadron 1 figther 1 torpedo bomber and 3 dive bomber or 5 squadron 3 figther and 2 dive bomber 


German Carrier only has 1 Carrier and its premium so far
Graff Zeppelin is the only carrier that german navy had (KMS) in world of warships and since.... its still under development im not sure how to add it but all i know she has 5 unit per squadron 
6 fighter and 6 dive bomber
if you choose air superiorty

Pros:

Ability to choose between AP and HE bombs.
Balanced loadout with both fighters and attack planes.
Secondary armament provides decent protection from close-in destroyers.
AP bombs can devastate enemy battleships, cruisers, and carriers.
Adequate anti-aircraft suite for self-defense.

Cons:

Unable to switch bomb types mid battle, which can leave the player helpless against certain enemy team compositions.
As a Tier VIII aircraft carrier, captains may face off against large amounts of high tier AA.
Unable to train captains for any other carriers, and requires a specialized German captain to perform well.
No torpedo bombers, making it very difficult to deal with enemy destroyers effectively.
Poor base surface detectability range at 16.2km.
Has weak fighters compared to other Tier VIII carriers.
AP bombs are nearly impossible to land hits with, even when auto-dropped.


Tips
use strafing wisely since its cost your plane but its also can deal lot of damage to enemy plane
learn using manual drop since autodrop is not reccomended in high tier :) 

dont let enemy destroyer near you since she will hunt you with torpedo and bothering you with HE shell and it can be deadly..... if you let her bothering you

go with your team,,,,,, 
your place is not on frontliner......
your place is on back
 
Battleships 
Battleships
the Big Gun..... and also Tanker.....
your Role can be Sniping or Tank your team while pushing......
because your HP and good Armor.... but dont even broadside.... or you get easyly kill and please when you pushing dont be crazy enough to yolo alone....... because some lonely BB will be easy target from enemy Carrier And Destroyer..... with their torpedo and plane
even you have powerfull AA your AA wont cover you from enemy Air Attack if you alone......

By the way if you meet a broadsiding BB or cruiser..... please dont use your HE.... unless your BB is british BB you can use HE though but most of it please use AP shell because it will deal more heavy damage to them ....... or even devas the broadsiding cruiser.....


Battleships has Repair Party that heal your wound but use it wisely because your repair consumable has limited number... per battle arround 3-5times

Japanese
specialise at long range attack because her accuracy still good at 15-20km......
but also can be used at pushing with your team..... to deal more damage
especially in tier 3 to 4 you will be pain in the♥♥♥♥♥br>but in tier 5 you will get good battleships it Fast battleships Kongo with good accuracy ..... can even penetrate and devas your enemy in range 15-18km..... most of it was cruiser.....
but in tier 6 you will get Fuso and her accuracy is suck but..... she good at medium range arround 10km
tier 7 BB you get Nagato from this point to tier 8 amagi and tier 9 izumo your accuracy is good in medium to long range 10-18km..... dont sniping to long because you will need to help push with your allied..... 
tier 10 you will get the famous battleships and proud battleships from japanese Yamato 
she carried the most powerfull gun 45cm and can also devas enemy ships most of it cruiser from 20km

if you bought premium ships tier 6 mutssu and tier 8 kii and ashitaka(still developing) i dont know about ashitaka but if you bought mutsu and kii you will even taste the torpedo ....
because she carried torpedo launcher....

USA
specialize at air defence and mid range support 13-17km 
because her armor are strong...but in tier 3 to 7 you will get slow but good armor battleships with good accuracy...... in mid and low range...... even in tier 5 to 7 you already get good AA to cover you....

on tier 8 to 10 you will get Fast battleships.... with good armor even good accuracy on mid and low range also your AA is improve and more powerfull....

German
good at pushing and brawler.... your Secondary is strong because has the longest range than other BB thats when you already on tier 7 to 10.... because on tier 7 your secondary is 7.2km on tier 8 you will get 11km range secondary (full upgrade with skill) to tier 10
so your main role... in pushing with your allied not sniping because your penetration is scary when you on mid and low range arround 7km to 14km but please dont go alone......
also from tier 8 your ships get Hydro accoustic 

British
specialize at burn your enem ships because british BB has the most better chance to creating fire on enemy ships..... even deal heavy damage on HE shell.....
the scarry part your concealment is the lowest on highest tier among other BB
on the crazy part while you on HE shell you even can citadel your enemy cruiser even BB on low range 

also... in tier 9 to 10 you will get crazy repair party that british cruiser has.....
even you get heavy damage and almost die you can repair with repair party and get your HP back to almost full health

but the weakness on british bb your armor is bad even can be deal heavy damage by enemy battleships while angling....

if you want to get easy arsonist achievement this ships is reccomended :)

France
since all i know is dunkerque... and there is more i know but its still under developement so i just put it dunkerque....
specialize on 
tanker with not showing her broadside..... because she only has gun in her front 
good at taking any damage while not showing broadside and repel them but you will get heavy concentrate fire from enemy ships even can kill you because if they use HE you will dead because its still taking any damage and decrease them but thats your job use it to push with your team.... 
dunkerque good at hunting enemy cruiser....

Russia


tips,,,,
dont always show your broadside you will get easyly get kill by enemy bb if you show your broadside..... your broadside is your main weakness remember that....


 
 
 
Cruiser 
Cruiser 
Light Cruiser
your Role can be Destroyer Escort...... and support your team on pushing and also carried Torpedo (but your main power not torpedo but your gun)
she also carried AA gun to cover you and your allied from enemy Air Attack

Heavy Cruiser 
She can be use as Pusher.... and also support in long range support with your HE to burn enemy ships...... and scare them XD
she also has powerfull AA to protect your ships and allied from enemy Air Attack

your AA can be take with defensive AA fire..... thats will annoy enemy plane.... even make carrier think twice before attack but use it wisely....

on high tier you will get repair party except 
british cruiser they already get on low tier till high tier the crazy part..... it has crazy repair party that can heal your HP up to 50%

by the way if you see enemy broadside cruiser.... and you near them please use AP to deal more damage to them......

Japan....
specialize at long range support can also be use at mid range and cover your allied.....
her weakness only her armor is bad..... but if you use it wisely she can be potential to deal heavy damage to her enemy.... because japan cruiser has good damage on HE
her chance of creating fire is good...

Usa
specialize at AA and cover your allied on frontline..... while pushing also
on high tier 8 to 10 they got Surveilance Radar than can detect enemy ships up to 9km 
its will scare the DD out of it.... so your role is cover your team while capping or stop enemy advanced

British
specialize at suprise attack and the only cruiser that arrmament with AP shell only.....
she equip with smoke and has the lowest concealment..... can be use to support your team on near enemy fleet.... and carried a torp attack on them.... but dont get to cocky since your armor is weak...,....
can get easyly devas and return home lol
she also has good AA 
your smoked can be change with radar on high tier 8 to 10
even on minotaur (Tier 10) fully upgraded with upgrade radar ,concealment upgraded and skill has 8.9km concealment with 56 sec radar that can detect enemy ships arround 9.9km with 56 sec

France
all i know about this its bring a Engine boost and also create a good chance of creating fire to enemy ships but it has a poor armor but has a good torp belt..... even that... still be dangerous to help pushing.....

Italy

German
the only cruiser that has good penetration with her AP shell....
German cruiser is has good mobility and also good accuracy even on high tier you even can citadel enemy BB if you near them..... well if you hav lot of guts but please im not reccomended to 6km..... unless its intended to suprise attack on behind the island to torp them....

but i mean it 10km already bring Decent damage with your AP shell arround 8k 10k even 12k to enemy BB

even cruiser.... you can even bring from 100% HP to 25% HP if you direct hit to enemy cruiser with your AP shell
also you cruiser has a good AA defence even if you equip with defensive AA fire it will make enemy carrier lose lot of squadron

Russia
specialize at long range support since she can deal good damage on long range to with her HE 
she has radar but her radar is not.... that long.... but it has good range then other radar ships arround 11km...... on high tier
she has torpedo... but its only 4km and also on tier 10 Moskva doesnt had torpedo but she actually a decent cruiser
