Player Opinion


Pros:

  • Has access to Italian SAP.
  • Top speed of 29 knots, only bested by Gneisenau.
  • Great concealment for a tier VII battleship; only Poltava is better by a few meters.
  • Decent AA defense.
  • Superb turret traverse, only beaten by Scharnhorst.
  • Shells have fast flight times, making it easy to lead.
  • Good armor protection, almost equivalent to Sinop.
  • Great turret angles; combined with good armor allows to bounce enemy shells effectively.
  • One of the highest torpedo protection available for any battleship.

Cons:

  • Does not carry HE shells that other non-Italian battleships have.
  • Poor reload time of 33 seconds, equivalent to Sinop.
  • Like Sinop, showing side can often get you citadeled.
  • Low healthpool for a tier VII battleship.
  • Guns are not consistent in regards to landing salvos.
