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, Dmitri Donskoi — named after hero Dmitri Donskoi (translation: Dmitri of the Don) — 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 she hide if concentrated upon. Work as a support cruiser and escort cruiser and you will see surprising results.

Alternatively, the ship's high speed, good citadel protection, and a full suite of consumables allow her to charge down a weakly defended flank without needing much help. Her great AP shells make her especially dangerous if allowed to get access to enemies' broadsides. However as noted, this ship cannot endure focused fire, so always plan a route to disengage with speed in case the enemy decides to focus you.

Pros:

  • Twelve 7.1-inch (180 mm) guns with excellent shell speed, penetration, and range.
  • Good firing angles when kiting with great turret traverse speed.
  • Very fast despite her appearance, which often tricks enemies to take insufficient lead, causing their shells to miss.
  • Powerful AA suite.
  • Good turning circle with decent rudder shift.
  • Best citadel protection among all Russian cruisers with 3 layers of armor, adding up to 190mm, but still vulnerable to citadel hits when angled.
  • Heavy-punching torpedoes for use in close quarters with good firing angles.
  • Long range Russian radar that nearly matches its concealment range.

Cons:

  • High detection range for a cruiser; it is equivalent to a battleship.
  • Relatively low fire chance for the gun caliber, especially after taking the Inertia Fuse for High Explosive skill.
  • Poor firing angles when pushing towards a target.
  • Ship is quite large for its tier and class, which means she is likely to take more shell hits and more likely to eat torpedoes.
  • The citadel rises above water, so this ship will take citadel hits, even when angled.
  • The ship, despite having great sustainability, cannot take concentrated fire.

Research

Acquire hull B for improved survivability and maneuverability. Follow that up with GFCS, then finally hull C for the extra AA.

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

The recommended upgrades for Dmitri Donskoi are as follows:

Captains with access to Surveillance Radar Modification 1 (+40% to duration of Surveillance Radar.) are strongly encouraged to equip it in Slot 2. This will increase the radar duration from 20 seconds to 28 seconds, which will allow the player to squeeze in an extra salvo during the duration of the radar.

Given the ship's great speed, using acceleration and deceleration to dodge incoming shells is a viable option. Therefore some captains may prefer to equip Propulsion Modification 2 (-50% to time for reaching full power. / Increases engine power when the ship starts moving.) in Slot 4 to facilitate this style.

Main Battery Modification 3 (-12% to main battery loading time. / -13% to the main battery traverse speed.) is preferred to Gun Fire Control System Modification 2 (+16% to main battery maximum firing range.) for Slot 6 due to the increased damage potential. However this requires the player to stay closer to the enemy and risk taking more damage. Therefore some captains may choose to increase the range to play safer at the cost of decreased DPM.

Commander Skills

Key skills for Dmitri Donskoi commanders include Priority Target, Adrenaline Rush, Superintendent, Demolition Expert, Concealment Expert, and Inertia Fuse for HE Shells.

Consumables

Dmitri Donskoi can equip the following consumables:

Camouflage

Type 1, 2, or 5 camouflage can be equipped for credits; Types 1 or 5 are recommended at a minimum to reduce detectibility range.

Players who wish to spend doubloons can equip Dmitri Donskoi with Type 19 camouflage that lowers her detection radius, reduces the accuracy of incoming shells, reduces her repair costs, and increases the amount of experience she earns.
