Player Opinion


Pros:

  • Has access to Italian SAP that is highly effective against ships at close range.
  • Hard to hit superstructure and set it on fire due to its small size.
  • Best tier IV battleship AA.
  • Large amount of secondaries with reasonable accuracy for brawling.
  • Great gun angles, combined with good armor, allows for bouncing enemy shells.
  • Very good concealment for a battleship at tier IV.
  • One of the fastest rudder shifts for a tier IV battleship.

Cons:

  • Does not carry HE shells that other non-Italian battleships have.
  • While AA is the best of many ships, it will not deter plane squadrons quickly and stop them from attacking.
  • Below average gun range at her tier.
  • While she has plenty of secondaries, they are short ranged.
  • Second longest reload at Tier IV, beaten by Gangut.
  • Below average health pool for a Tier IV battleship.
