Albany — American promo premium Tier II cruiser.

The ship was built in the U.K. for the Brazilian Navy, but was purchased by the U.S. Government. When commissioned, Albany was the most successful cruiser in the U.S. Navy. Despite relatively small dimensions, she carried powerful armament.

Albany was a Tier II Premium ship during the Closed Beta Test and was a special gift ship for Wargaming's 17th Anniversary.

Player Opinion

Performance

Albany has sub-par gun range, but that doesn't prevent it from being able to stand its ground when used well. Specifically, it is quite maneuverable and is best suited to a play style resembling that of American destroyers; that is, going around island in a bid to remain in cover and strike at the enemy while he doesn't expect you. In the hands of a capable captain, this ship remains respectable threat, being able to damage most ships of Tier II and III.

Pros:

  • Good damage per second out of her main battery.
  • Incredibly tight turning radius of only 350m.

Cons:

  • Low top speed of only 20 knots.
  • Below average gun range.

Research

As a premium ship, Albany doesn't have any upgrades to research.

Commander Skills

The following information is provided for players who wish to create a permanent captain for the ship. Those players who are retraining captains or using the ship to gain extra experience for a captain should consult the page relevant to the ship to which the captain will be assigned.

Camouflage

As a premium ship, Albany comes included with Type 9 camouflage that lowers her detection radius, reduces the accuracy of incoming shells, and increases the amount of experience she earns.
