Leningrad — Soviet premium Tier VII destroyer.

The first major warship completely designed and built in the USSR. The ship was notable for her powerful artillery and very high speed. During World War II, her AA defenses were reinforced.

Leningrad first went on sale on 10 October 2016 on the NA servers, and on 5 October 2016 on the EU servers.

Player Opinion

Performance

Leningrad may initially seem like a Tier VII Gremyashchy with an extra gun and quadruple torpedo launchers (instead of triples). Her 43 knot top speed (reaching nearly 46 knots with Engine Boost (While active, increases a ship's speed by a fixed percentage.) active) means she can avoid some incoming fire by simply outrunning it, and her high velocity guns give her the ability to pepper targets at range where she can not be reliably hit. However, she has a much wider turning circle in exchange for her higher top speed, causing her to drift when turning. This can sometimes lead to accidentally hitting torpedoes her captain thought they had dodged.

Her torpedoes are more powerful than Gremyashchy’s, with 700 more damage and 5 knots faster speed in exchange for a longer reload due to the quad mount launchers. The main battery guns are in an odd layout, with an anti-aircraft mount blocking the rearmost gun from firing aft, and the third gun located aft of the bridge; in order to fire all her main battery weapons simultaneously, Leningrad needs to expose a great deal of herself to return fire.

Overall, Leningrad trades a worse gun layout from the regular tech tree Tier VIII destroyer Kiev for better torpedoes, making her an interesting hybrid play style ship, able to both function as both gunboat and torpedo boat depending on what the situation calls for.


Pros:

  • Relatively good firing angles.
  • Good main battery rate of fire and shell velocity like all other Russian destroyers.
  • Fastest destroyer in her tier: a whopping 43 knots.
  • Great rudder shift and handling characteristics for a Russian destroyer.
  • Decent concealment, identical to Tier VII USN premium destroyer Sims.
  • Good torpedoes; can fire torpedoes from beyond her detection radius, similar to Gremyashchy.

Cons:

  • Typically large turning radius for a Russian destroyer.
  • Cannot easily stealth-fire.
  • Anti-aircraft armament is underwhelming. Don't expect to shoot down any planes.
  • Poor turret traverse, only slightly better than Tier VII Japanese counterpart Shiratsuyu.
  • Insane ship drift at mid-to-high speeds while turning, even when slowing down.

Research

As a Premium ship, Leningrad doesn't have any upgrades to research.

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

The recommended upgrades for Leningrad are as follows:

With only four upgrade slots to fill, there isn't a lot of variety of choice for fitting out Leningrad. Main Armaments Modification 1 is the natural pick for Slot 1'; for Slot 2, the choice boils down to captain's preference between Aiming Systems Modification 1 to improve the accuracy of her main battery, or Main Battery Modification 2 (+5% to main battery loading time. / +15% to main battery traverse speed.) for faster turret rotation. Captains who have opted for Last Stand over Expert Marksman as a Level 2 commander skill will probably want the latter.

Remaining upgrade slots are best used for Propulsion Modifications 1 and 2, in order to increase the reliability of her engines. Leningrad is dependent upon her speed for defense; these two mods help contribute to her survivability in that regard.

Commander Skills

Like her tech tree cousins, Leningrad plays more like a light cruiser than a destroyer. She will greatly prefer to hold enemies at arms' length when possible, maximizing the accuracy, muzzle velocity, and user-friendly firing arcs of her main battery. Captains will want to focus their skill points on improving her main battery and maximizing her survivability.

Consumables

Leningrad can equip the following consumables:

Keeping Leningrad’s engine in working order is paramount to her survival; captains are strongly recommended to spend the credits (or doubloons) on Damage Control Party II (While active, instantly repairs any module incapacitations, fires, and floods.) for the reduced cooldown on repairs.

Camouflage

As a Premium ship, Leningrad comes included with Type 10 camouflage that lowers her detection radius, reduces the accuracy of incoming shells, reduces her repair costs, and increases the amount of experience she earns.
