How to KGV? I had watch many YouTubers' replay but still i am struggling to make it work. The AP penetration against battleship is bad and entire match i just shoot HE.... And deal small damage lol 

I heard from someone said that KGV is a schanhorst without torpedo tubes.

She's quite good IMO. Don't underestimate the power of British HE. Her HE power are immense. You can melt other BB with her high fire chance. What's funnier is that, you don't need to select AP shell to deal massive damage to a broadside cruisers. AP shells are crucial for her if you are about to fight in CQC. This means that you must actively switching her ammunition depending on the situation. Also, her bow armor is 25 mm. So don't even try to bow tank or push a flank unless you know how to do it.

KGV is incredibly easy to farm damage with. Basically you have trash AP, so you shoot HE at battleships, AP at cruisers. Be careful about higher tier cruisers, 356 mm AP is sort of useless against most t8+ cruisers if they are angled.

Yes, AP is useless against tier8++ cruisers even HE doesn't deal much damage. All the time i just spamming HE against battleships, hoping RNGesus say yes to set fire which makes the game not enjoyable( i prefer to brawl with Colorado) 

Do you think IFHE will help improve the HE penetration?

But it can. You should aim at the superstructure to deal massive damage to cruisers or incapacitate some of their modules. If you aim at the lower part of the ship, you can't deal massive damage. Because HE were not meant to penetrate a thick armor.

Nope. this skill unnecessary. Because again your shells are big and British BB has a hard penetrating HE shells and high fire chance. So yeah, choosing IFHE on a battleship is utterly useless. Instead, you should pick Concealment Expert.

Yes i m saving points for Concealment expert. I do aim Superstructure of Cruiser, currently highest damage i got is 6K + incapacitate engine of Baltimore. 

 

No doubt this ship has superior fire chance. BURN BURN BURN! Burn down Alsace and Musashi recently. 

 

Ps: MY KGV is AA build ship

AA build for KGV? Hmm. I think it's still okay to use concealment expert. If you want some other useful skill, you can grind for advanced firing training to boast the AA more. Or you can grind for fire prevention so that HE spammers can't set a fire at you easily.

NO NO NO. That's a waste of points mate.

KGV must have CE and FP build if you have points to spare.

Thanks for the advice. Right now my captain has 10 points only, saving up for CE.

Yes, this ship is extremely easily to set on fire, probaly i will take fire prevention skill after Conceal since my captain only 10 points. I run Dam Con 2 and  fire extinguish flag to reduce the fire time.
