Aurora — Soviet promo premium Tier III cruiser.

The last ship in the Pallada class of protected cruisers, Aurora was surpassed in speed by other ships of her type and time. The ship was modernized to receive significantly enhanced armament. As a result, she became superior in artillery firepower to World War I cruisers with similar displacement.

Aurora is now preserved as a military museum ship in St. Petersburg, Russia.

Player Opinion

Performance

Aurora is a protected cruiser armed with multiple 152mm guns in casemates. The ship can be compared to the American St. Louis as both ships have similar layouts. While comparable in armor, Aurora suffers from having fewer hit points than St. Louis. Furthermore, the top speed of 20 knots makes Aurora one of the slower ships in her tier. Aurora is able to present a broadside of 8 guns at a time to the enemy with a range of 11.2 km. However, it should be noted that the shell arcs for this ship can be rather high.

Overall, Aurora is a workable ship for players looking for a low tier premium cruiser. However, its sluggish maneuverability and lackluster guns may be frustrating for some players.

LittleWhiteMouse's Premium Ship Review: Aurora from the NA forums

Pros:

  • Large number of guns on each broadside.
  • Decent armor for Tier III.
  • Slight edge in range (11.2 km) over counterparts.

Cons:

  • Slow speed and sluggish acceleration.
  • AP ammo rarely effective.
  • Practically absent anti-aircraft suite.
  • High shell arc and slow shell velocity.
  • No secondaries.

Research

As a premium ship, Aurora doesn't have any upgrades to research.

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

Aurora’s best upgrade choices are Main Armaments Modification 1 in Upgrade Slot 1, and Damage Control System Modification 1 in Upgrade Slot 4.

Commander Skills

Camouflage

As a premium ship, Aurora comes included with Type 9 camouflage that lowers her detection radius, reduces the accuracy of incoming shells, and increases the amount of experience she earns.
