Dmitri Donskoi — Soviet Tier IX cruiser.

The ship was developed from the Chapayev class. She received stronger armament and a more powerful propulsion (Project 65). Dmitri Donskoi surpassed her prototype in all major characteristics: dimensions, speed, artillery power, AA capabilities, and torpedo armament.

Player Opinion

Performance

A reliable cruiser in skilled hands, the Dmitri Donskoi, named after hero Dmitri Donskoi (translation: Dmitri of the Don) or "Dima" can be said as the analogous counterpart for the US cruiser of the same tier the Baltimore, albeit having different values than her US counterpart. If anything, the cruiser has a surprising AA suite aboard as well as trading gun caliber from the standard 8 inch guns normally seen on heavy cruisers to the 7.1 inch guns that was mounted on the Kirov at first. As an "escort cruiser", she is ideal for screening the carriers and battleships from aerial assaults as well as providing a second line of fire within the battle line as her range can permit her to do so. However despite her potency and effectiveness, be constantly vigilant and mobile as the ship absolutely can NOT survive a beating nor can it hide if it is concentrated upon. Work as a support cruiser and escort cruiser and you will see surprising results.

Pros:

  • Improved 7.1 inch guns from her tier 5 predecessor Kirov
  • Fast despite her appearance
  • Powerful AA suite
  • Impressive gun range
  • Good rudder shift
  • Friendly ergonomics
  • Surprisingly durable for a cruiser of her type

Cons:

  • High detection range for a cruiser; it is equivalent to a battleship
  • The ship, despite being fairly durable, cannot take excess punishment
  • Cannot effectively join fast striking cruiser groups due to her detection compared to her colleagues the Roon, Baltimore and Ibuki

Research

If you are comfortable with the range with your rather high detection range, research hull B to improve your ship's HP and AA suite then hull C and then the GFCS, or you can acquire hull B, then gun range then hull C.
