Player Opinion

Performance

Eritrea has the highest hit point pool of a Tier I vessel, with great rate of fire guns, this vessel will ease you into the Italian cruiser line. Only the premium ships Duca d'Aosta and Duca degli Abruzzi have access to the standard HE shell type like the Eritrea has.

The game play is similar to other vessels of this tier, but with the large hit points and the guns rate of fire, Eritrea can deal damage quickly and efficiently. The gun have floaty shell arcs which may take new players some experience to master over a range.

Pros:

  • Most hit points of all Tier I ships.
  • Long firing range.
  • Short reload time.
  • Highest damage per minute of all Tier I ships.
  • Second-shortest surface detectability range of all Tier I ships.

Cons:

  • Longest main battery turn time of all Tier I ships.
  • Longest rudder shift time of all Tier I ships.
  • Second-lowest damage per salvo of all Tier I ships.
  • Second-lowest chance of causing a fire with one shell of all Tier I ships. See also: Comparison of Tier I Cruisers.

Research
