Player Opinion


Tier VIII Premium cruiser Irian is remarkably similar to her sister ship, Mikhail Kutuzov. A few key differences between the two exist, though. Irian is Pan-Asian for starters, and gains a better torpedo suite, along with the Torpedo Reload Booster (When used, torpedo reload time is significantly reduced.) consumable in exchange for losing Mikhail Kutuzov’s Smoke Generator (While active, generates a smoke screen that blocks line-of-sight for both enemies and teammates.), Defensive AA Fire (While active, the damage per second of large caliber anti-aircraft guns is increased.), and some of her range.

Irian owes the largest part of her offensive strength to the twelve 152mm guns she's packing. They have the classic Russian fast shell velocities and low firing arcs, making hitting targets even at the extreme limits of her 17.5 km range much easier than other, similarly armed ships. Unfortunately, the relatively low caliber of these shells necessitates using the commander skill Inertia Fuse for HE Shells to maximize her offense. It gives Irian the punch needed to do direct damage to many of the ships within her tier spread, a cost well worth the loss of fire chance. Be wary though: as with most other cruisers, Irian requires time to do damage with her guns, and is very vulnerable to return fire. Every moment spent spotted and shooting is time that the enemy team can fire back at her. Irian must be played with care, using her range and excellent shell ballistics to keep enemies at arm's length.

However, should captains find themselves a touch closer to their foes, Irian possesses a potent deepwater torpedo armament. While they lose the ability to harm destroyers, these torpedoes are perfect for quickly taking down any other class of ship. They are the longest ranged torpedoes put on to an cruiser in World of Warships with a maximum range of 13.5 km, and are extremely stealthy while packing a sizeable punch. While it certainly isn't risk-free getting into the ranges required to use these torpedoes due to Irians’ relative fragility, they are a welcome addition to her arsenal... especially with the inclusion of her Torpedo Reload Booster (When used, torpedo reload time is significantly reduced.) consumable, that allows captains to launch a second salvo of torpedoes very quickly.

Overall, Irian has an very high ceiling in terms of offensive firepower in exchange for not being overly stealthy or well-armored. She is very much a glass cannon, but one that will make her impact felt in any battle, whether she ultimately sinks or not.


  • Twelve long range, high velocity 152mm guns.
  • One quintuple-tube torpedo launchers on each side with, long range, and stealthy torpedoes.
  • Solid anti-aircraft suite.
  • Equips the Torpedo Reload Booster (When used, torpedo reload time is significantly reduced.) consumable for quickly reloading her torpedoes.
  • Good base 12% fire chance on HE shells.


  • Requires IFHE to deal direct damage to 32mm plating.
  • Lacks the vision-obscuring smoke of sister ship Mikhail Kutuzov and her smoke.
  • Very lightly armored; capable of taking damage from nearly any angle.
  • Ballistic performance of her guns makes utilizing islands as cover difficult.
  • Rudder shift time is very sub-par for her tier; as a result, she handles somewhat sluggishly.


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