Battle Levels

Gangut — Soviet Tier IV battleship.

Was part of the first series of dreadnought battleships built in Russia. She was armed with twelve main battery guns. The ship's features included a significant area of side armor and a general layout providing a full sideboard salvo at the widest possible angles.

Player Opinion


Coming from Knyaz Suvorov, Gangut is sure to feel like a welcome improvement thanks mainly to the centerline turret layout which allows 75% of the main battery to be fired while still giving favorable hull angles to deflect or absorb incoming fire. Captains who own either Oktyabrskaya Revolutsiya or Imperator Nikolai I will find adjusting to this ship to be a rather pain-free experience due to their similarities. However, since Gangut is a tech tree Russian battleship, it does not have the longer range accuracy found on the aforementioned premium ships and instead must close the distance with enemy ships to land more than singular random hits. This is somewhat easily accomplished by her 23-knot top speed which ties Gangut for second-fastest BB of the tier alongside Kaiser, meaning she will be able to (slowly) run down or outrun most other battleships in her matchmaking spread.


  • Good rudder shift time when upgraded to B-hull.
  • Superstructure is small and well-armored and the ship's 32 mm outer plating make her highly resistant to HE spam.
  • Hull armor scheme pairs well with main battery layout.
  • Main guns have good firing arcs, accuracy, and penetration.
  • Damage control has a fast cooldown.


  • Detection range is higher than maximum possible firing range without commander skills and camo.
  • Same poor reload time as Knyaz Suvorov, rivaled only by new US battleships to be added in the 9.11 update.
  • Slightly improved, but still poor AA defense.
  • High and under-protected citadel is easily hit if not angled. The ship's armor is ineffective against battleship guns.
  • No torpedo blisters means only a 9% reduction in damage from torpedo hits.
  • Damage control has limited charges.


The research path of Gangut is relatively simple – players are encouraged to first unlock the (B) hull to increase ship health, anti-aircraft armament, and rudder response time, and finish with the fire control upgrade, which allows for a 10% firing range upgrade.

Optimal Configuration


The recommended upgrades for Gangut are as follows:

Commander Skills


Gangut equips the following consumables:

Keep in mind that while the damage control team is very efficient, it can be used a limited number of times before becoming exhausted.


Type 1, 2, or 5 camouflage can be equipped for credits Credits or the outstanding Type 59 for  Doubloons; Types 2 or 5 are recommended at a minimum to reduce the accuracy of incoming shells.

There is no standard permanent camouflage for this ship.


Note: Use of the Juliet Charlie signal makes detonation impossible.
