Bogatyr — Soviet Tier III cruiser.

The best protected cruiser of its time in the Russian Navy. This ship was based on a project that was notable for its overall well-balanced features and good protection of the ship's numerous main guns, some of which were mounted in turrets. During World War I, the ship was re-armed with more advanced artillery.

Player Opinion

Performance

Bogatyr is a decent cruiser for her tier. She has solid armor and maneuverability, with a particular focus on the main battery guns.

Bogatyr can pack more main guns than any other Tier III ship: sixteen (16) in fact, two more than American counterpart St. Louis. She can also shoot further than any other Tier III cruiser. It is important to note, however, that the hang time for the shells is long, and that they fire on a high arc (both good and bad). The turret traverse is painfully slow even for her broadside mounts that don't have far to swivel.

Researching and equipping the 130mm guns is a nominal downgrade. Despite higher fire chance per shell and quicker turret traverse, the individual shells do less damage and have less penetration. The 130mm guns do benefit from the Basic Firing Training commander skill, however, and make a Bogatyr that sets up in this fashion an excellent destroyer hunter-killer. The 130mm guns also come with improvements in dispersion and an increase to shell velocity, which increases the overall accuracy of the guns.

Pros:

  • Lots of guns on both sides of the ship, even more than American counterpart St. Louis.
  • Low caliber upgraded guns benefit from Basic and Advanced Firing Training commander skills, and get full benefit from Expert Marksman.
  • Upgraded guns have good ballistics for Tier III, allowing Bogatyr to hit targets even at maximum range.

Cons:

  • Upgraded guns have lower damage per shell and worse rate of fire than stock guns.
  • Less health and armor than St. Louis; however, Bogatyr still has better survivability than most other Tier III cruisers.
  • Slow for a cruiser.
  • Not a single anti-aircraft gun.

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

The recommended upgrades for Bogatyr are as follows:

Commander Skills

Captains who elect to use the 130mm main battery configuration are encouraged to invest points in both Basic and Advanced Firing Training, and may find Inertia Fuse for HE Shells less useful. The below skill recommendations are for Bogatyr’s stock 152mm guns.

Consumables

Bogatyr can equip the following consumables:

Camouflage

Type 1, 2, or 5 camouflage can be equipped for credits; Types 1 or 5 are recommended at a minimum to reduce detectibility range.
