Duca d'Aosta — Italian promo premium Tier VI cruiser.

A light cruiser, Duca d'Aosta was a good ship for her time. Among her competitive advantages were high speed and generally well-balanced parameters.

Duca d'Aosta first went on sale on 21 April 2017 on the NA servers, and on 20 April 2017 on the EU servers.

Player Opinion

Performance

Tier VI premium cruiser Emanuele Filiberto Duca d'Aosta — named after Prince Emanuele Filiberto of Savoy, Second Duke of Aosta — introduces the Regia Marina to World of Warships.

Duca d'Aosta is built around eight 6-inch (152mm) guns in four turrets in an AB-XY configuration and complimented by one triple-tube torpedo launcher on both her port and starboard sides. Her guns feature high velocity and flat arcs — making leading enemy ships at range easy — but are hampered by sub-par performance from her armor piercing shells; most Duca d'Aosta captains will find themselves firing almost exclusively high explosive rounds. Her torpedoes have a 12.0 km range, allowing for some interesting uses that most other cruisers (with their shorter-ranged fish) are not capable of.

Cruiser veterans will also be delighted to note that Duca d'Aosta does not have to choose between Defensive AA Fire (While active, damage per second of large caliber anti-aircraft guns increased.) and Hydroacoustic Search (While active, detects all enemy ships and torpedoes within the specified radius, regardless of obstacles (such as smoke screens or islands).); she can equip both, the only cruiser capable of doing so. Despite her access to Defensive AA Fire, her AA suite is mediocre at best, weaker than that of nearly every other Tier VI cruiser. Unless commander skill points and modules are invested into buffing the diameter of her AA bubble, the consumable is best reserved for self-defense only.

As expected for a mid-tier light cruiser, Duca d'Aosta has a very vulnerable citadel, meaning that captains must play cautiously to avoid being punished for overextending or positional mistakes. She also has a large turning radius and poor acceleration, making her vulnerable if caught in a bad situation. Her rudder response and top speed are outstanding, however; once she is up to speed she handles almost like a destroyer despite her overall length.

LittleWhiteMouse's Premium Ship Preview: Duca d'Aosta from the NA Forums


Pros:

  • Duca d'Aosta has a top speed of 36.5 knots making her the fastest cruiser at Tier VI.
  • The ship can mount the Hydroacoustic Search (While active, detects all enemy ships and torpedoes within the specified radius, regardless of obstacles (such as smoke screens or islands).), Defensive AA Fire (While active, damage per second of large caliber anti-aircraft guns increased.), and Spotting Aircraft (While active, a spotter plane circles the ship providing enhanced main battery firing range.) consumables simultaneously.
  • The torpedoes have an impressive 12.0 km range and reload speed of only 71 seconds.
  • The main battery guns fire at a very high velocity.
  • Decent AA with the right upgrades.
  • Torpedoes do heavy damage.

Cons:

  • Similar to other light cruisers, Duca d'Aosta’s armor will not withstand many hits from large caliber shells.
  • The traverse speed of the main turrets is somewhat slow and will sometimes lose their aim during hard turns.
  • The fire chance on the HE shells is low at 7%.
  • Despite their range, the torpedoes are slow at only 51 knots.
  • Her AP is not as effective as her contemporaries due to low armor penetration values on the shells themselves.

Research

As a premium ship, Duca d'Aosta doesn't have any upgrades to research.

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

The recommended upgrades for Duca d'Aosta are as follows:

Commander Skills

Consumables

Duca d'Aosta can equip the following consumables:


Duca d'Aosta’s suite of consumables is what sets her apart from many of her contemporaries. As such, captains are encouraged to shell out credits or doubloons for Hydroacoustic Search II (Detects all enemy ships and torpedoes within the specified radius, regardless of obstacles (such as smoke screens or islands).) and Defensive AA Fire II (While active, damage per second of large caliber anti-aircraft guns increased.). Damage Control Party II (While active, instantly repairs any module incapacitations, fires, and floods.) is always a good call to help protect her health pool and critical modules. Equipping Spotting Aircraft II (While active, a spotter plane circles the ship providing enhanced main battery firing range.) is left to individual captains, but it's worth noting that Duca d'Aosta has a very short main battery range for her tier; captains will find themselves getting a lot of good mileage out of their spotter plane.

Camouflage

As a premium ship, Duca d'Aosta comes included with Type 10 camouflage that lowers her detection radius, reduces the accuracy of incoming shells, and increases the amount of experience she earns.

Signals

As with all cruisers, Duca d'Aosta has 8 slots for signal flags. Victor Lima (+1% chance of causing a fire for bombs and shells with a caliber above 160mm / +0.5% chance of causing a fire for bombs and shells with a caliber below 160mm. / +4% chance of causing flooding.) and India X-Ray (+1% chance of causing a fire for bombs and shells with a caliber above 160mm. / +0.5% chance of causing a fire for bombs and shells with a caliber below 160mm. / +5% to the risk of your ship's magazine detonating.) are highly recommended to boost fire chance, increasing the damage potential of the ship. Zulu Hotel (+50% Commander XP earned for the battle.) is also highly recommended as it increases commander experience gains, which is already high due to the Duca d'Aosta being a premium ship, and the signal flag being relatively easy to obtain. Experience gains can be multiplied even further with the Equal Speed Charlie London (+50% XP earned for the battle.), Papa Papa (+300% Free XP earned for the battle.), and Dragon Flag (+333% Commander XP earned for the battle.) signal flags, which boost regular experience gains, Free experience gains, and commander experience gains, respectively. The Zulu (+20% credits earned for the battle.) signal flag may also be mounted to increase the credit income of the ship, which premium ships are good for. Sierra Mike (+5% to the ship's maximum speed.) is recommended in order to make the already fast Duca d'Aosta even faster. Finally, you may choose to add the Juliet Charlie (-100% to the risk of your ship's magazine detonating.) signal flag in order to prevent detonations to the ship.
