Battle Levels

Gnevny — Soviet Tier VI destroyer.

Gnevny was the first in a series of destroyers built in the U.S.S.R. (Project 7). She had good performance characteristics and very high speed and became the backbone of the Soviet Fleet during WW2. She outmatched the majority of foreign destroyers in terms of artillery firepower. Later, a Project 7U was introduced to improve engine and seagoing qualities but lacked good AA protection, which was constantly improved during the WW2.

Player Opinion

Captains who have played this far into the Soviet destroyer should be well-versed in the tactics of Tier VI's Gnevny: keeping the range open from her primary targets, and pound away at them with her guns.

Keys to victory in Gnenvy include avoiding close-range combat with equal or higher tier American destroyers, as their rate of fire and turret traverse put her at a disadvantage. If corned by an American destroyer, pop an Engine BoostWhile active, increases a ship's speed by a fixed percentage. consumable and open the range as quickly as possible; Gnevny’s guns can still hit targets outside of 7km, while American destroyer gun ballistics make it a challenge for them to hit quickly moving targets at range. Dealing with any Japanese destroyers — if they are spotted — should not be a problem; their guns have a worse rate of fire, though they have very potent torpedoes, so captains are encouraged to stay alert.

Gnevny’s torpedoes are really only useable where cover (such as islands or smoke) allows her to close to point blank range with unsuspecting targets, or in straight up suicide charges against enemy ships. Captains who do manage to get close enough to use them, though, will inflict crippling damage, as they hit incredibly hard and move fast.


  • Excellent gun range and ballistics.
  • Decent chance of fire on her HE shells (8%).
  • Lower base detect than its predecessor and stealthier than its Tier VI American counterpart, Farragut.


  • Very short torpedo range.
  • Although Gnevny is relatively fast, it is much slower than its predecessor Podvoisky.


Availability of researchable upgrades for Gnevny is as follows:

  • Hull: Upgrade to Gnevny (B) for more health, improved maneuverability, and better AA. Research of this module unlocks progression to Minsk.
  • Torpedoes: Upgrade to 59-39 mod. 1. Although it increases her reload, they deal extra damage, are faster, and have a higher flooding chance.
  • Gun Fire Control System: Upgrade to GFCS VI mod. 2 for an extra 10% main battery range.
Quickly research either Hull (B) for better rudder shift and increased health pool; then research the Gun Fire Control System VI mod. 2 for better range. The upgraded torpedoes are optional if low on credits, as they provides only an additional 5 knots to torpedo speed — despite being already very fast for short ranged torpedoes — and a bit more damage, and are unnecessary to unlock Minsk.
