Battle Levels

Giulio Cesare — Italian promo premium Tier V battleship.

The lead ship in the first series of Italian dreadnoughts. In the 1930s, the ship was rebuilt with more powerful and longer-firing guns, additional torpedo protection and considerably more speed than before, making her a formidable opponent for the majority of battleships at that time.

Giulio Cesare was first released for sale worldwide on 20 October 2017.

Player Opinion


Expanding the Regia Marina’s presence in World of Warships is Tier V battleship Giulio Cesare. Fans of Japanese Tier V battleship Kongo will find a lot to like about this sleek Italian capital ship.

Cesare features ten 320mm guns with decent dispersion and an above average sigma value for her tier, leading to a main battery that produces tight shell groupings. She also boasts a relatively high speed — only slightly slower than Kongo — as well as decent AA and armor protection. Subsequently, Cesare straddles the line between battleship and cruiser: faster than most of the BB's at tier, but far more durable than the notoriously easy-to-kill Tier V cruisers. This allows her to utilize her speed to take on the battlecruiser role that the slower Tier V battleships are unable to fill. She has some notable deficiencies: her torpedo protection is weaker than most of her counterparts, her rudder shift time is on the slow side for the tier, and her health pool is relatively small. Still, she is a well-rounded ship overall and is comfortable to play for veterans of other mid-tier battleships.

Captains who enjoy a battlecruiser play style will enjoy the mix of speed and firepower that Giulio Cesare brings to the battle.


  • Armor belt covers most of the hull, with much of it extending from stem to stern and her citadel is small and well armored, making it difficult to reliably hit.
  • Second fastest Tier V battleship at 27 knots.
  • Lowest detection range of the Tier V battleships at 13.3km.
  • Quick turret traverse time for a battleship.
  • Decent anti-air defense, for tier
  • Decent rudder shift time, for a battleship


  • Lower amount of hit points than most Tier V battleships.
  • Low torpedo damage reduction for her tier.
  • Armor piercing shells may struggle to damage distant or angled targets.
  • The rear turrets require the ship to expose a large portion of her side to fire.
  • Frustrating, bad dispersion


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

Optimal Configuration


The recommended upgrades for Giulio Cesare are as follows:

Upgrade Slot 3 allows players to mount AA Guns Modification 1, which puts out more flak from her medium- and long-range AA guns. Players may also choose to mount Secondary Battery Modification 2 (+20% to secondary battery maximum firing range. /    -20% to maximum dispersion of secondary battery shells.) to increase the firing range and accuracy of the secondary battery, or Aiming Systems Modification 1 (-7% to maximum dispersion of main battery shells. / +20% to torpedo tubes traverse speed. / +5% to secondary battery maximum firing range. / -5% to maximum dispersion of secondary shells.) to further reduce dispersion for tighter shot groups. Although these options are viable, enemy aircraft will likely prove to be a more common threat, and the maximum dispersion is already low for a battleship.

Commander Skills

Like most battleships, Giulio Cesare benefits most from commander skills that maximize her survivability. This is doubly important for her given the (small) size of her health pool. Her AA is also worth investing some skill points and modules in.


Giulio Cesare can equip the following consumables:

Spending credits or doubloons for Damage Control Party II (When activated, instantly repairs fires, floods, and incapacitations, and prevents more for the duration.) and/or Repair Party II (While active, restores a fixed percentage of a ship's hit points each second.) is recommended for players who find the ship easily set afire.


As a premium ship, Giulio Cesare 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.


Giulio Cesare captains should focus on survivability as the primary goal of its signal loadout. Credit and experience signals may also be taken, but as Giulio Cesare is a mid-tier ship she does not see as much experience and credit gains compared to her higher tiered counterparts. For boosting survivability, November Foxtrot (-5% reload time on all consumables.), India Delta (+20% to the amount of HP recovered when the Repair Party consumable is used.), and India Yankee (-20% to fire duration.) are all important signals to take. November Echo Setteseven (+5% continuous damage by all AA guns, +5% damage per second within the explosion radius of shells fired from medium- and long-range AA defenses.) may also help survivability by increasing the damage per second of the anti-aircraft guns, while mounting Sierra Mike (+5% to the ship's maximum speed.) will aid in maneuverability. The economic and special flags may also be used on the Giulio Cesare, however if low on these signal flags they are best saved for higher tiered premium ships as they provide more gains in experience and credits.
