Svietlana — Soviet Tier IV cruiser.

The first light cruiser with turbine propulsion, laid down for the Imperial Russian Navy. Svietlana was notably faster than her predecessors. Her armor protection and weapons were quite good for her time. The ship's artillery was remarkable for its long range and strong ballistic properties.

Player Opinion

Performance

Svietlana is a unique ship with many interesting qualities that make her stand apart from her tier 4 rivals. Most noticeably she has numerous 130 mm guns as her main battery armament - the caliber later seen on higher tier Soviet destroyers. She can fire eight of these guns per broadside, the most of any Tier IV cruiser. In addition, swinging the bow of the ship back and forth can bring almost all the guns to bear on a target you are charging at, as well as making yourself hard to hit.

The downside for the cruiser though is the poor reload time, unlike the other cruisers for it's tier. The AA weaponry is also for show and will rarely shoot down any aircraft. The placement of torpedoes is also something to be aware at, due to the fact that their placement is way at the back of the ship and exposes your entire broadside when attacking. This allows the enemy easy citadel hits.

Pros:

  • Excellent shell ballistics (high shell speed and flat arcs).
  • Good concealment despite being the largest cruiser at Tier IV.
  • Wide torpedo launch arcs.
  • Low caliber guns (130 mm) enable this ship to benefit from Basic and Advanced Firing Training captain skills as well as full benefit (+2.5°) from Expert Marksman.
  • Can equip Hydroacoustic Search (While active, detects all enemy ships and torpedoes within the specified radius, regardless of obstacles (such as smoke screens or islands).) once Hull (B) is mounted.

Cons:

  • Slow reload time for a Tier IV cruiser.
  • Poor torpedo damage, speed, and range.
  • Slow rudder shift time.
  • Abysmal AA defense.
  • Second slowest Tier IV cruiser.
  • Placement of torpedo launchers, means you must expose your broadside to most enemies.
