Player Opinion

Performance

While slightly slower than its predecessor Shchors and carrying the exact same set of guns with only a touch longer range, the Chapayev sees improvements in most other respects. Her armor is upgraded from "virtually nonexistent" to "weak", she sees a significant boost in hit points, and her AA suite roughly doubles in effectiveness to a competent but not spectacular level.

The most intriguing addition is the long-range (11.7 km) Russian radar, available upon acquiring B hull. Judicious use can make for major plays on capture points by allowing the team to dislodge or destroy erstwhile hidden enemy destroyers. This combines well with the extra stealthiness enabled by the new upgrade slot.

Pros:

  • Guns with excellent range, ballistics, and rate of fire
  • Long-range Russian radar with B hull

Cons:

  • Armor, while improved, is still quite weak
  • Massive turning circle and slow rudder shift
  • Fast but extremely short-ranged torpedoes are only useful as a weapon of desperation

Research

B hull should be researched first for the radar. After that, only the fire control system remains.
