Battle Levels

Knyaz Suvorov — Soviet Tier III battleship.

Originating from a project to design a "large high-speed battleship with modern artillery", created on the basis of the experience of the Russo-Japanese War (the New Shipbuilding project). The battleship's armament was represented by 305 mm guns with outstanding ballistic qualities for their time.

Player Opinion


Knyaz Suvorov is a peculiar Tier III battleship that favors a brawler play style, but not in the traditional sense.

The armor layout, speed, and maneuverability of Knyaz Suvorov favors run-through attacks as opposed to the usual "wagon wheel" swirling turn. If successfully baited into doing so, other battleship captains which commit to a turning fight will end up giving their broadsides at an easy range for devastating AP shell hits. Her 22-knot top speed also means that she is an excellent ship for supporting and divisioning with slower "protected" cruisers such as Bogatyr and Saint Louis that have faster firing but lower-alpha guns.

Suvorov is not without her weaknesses though. Her main guns have lackluster maximum and effective range compared to other Tier III battleships and cannot reliably hit even the largest of ships at maximum range. On top of that, her armor scheme does not conform to the "all-or-nothing" schemes found on other ships, meaning citadel protection is sacrificed for increased overall hull protection.

At the end of the day, Suvorov can be a valuable offensive or defensive asset to any team if the captain employs the right tactics and has teammates willing to support him.


  • Best AP penetration of all Tier III battleships
  • Good accuracy at close range
  • Excellent hull armor, resilient against AP when properly angled and most HE at all times
  • Second fastest Tier III battleship
  • Very quick rudder shift for a battleship
  • The Fast Damage Control Team (When activated, instantly repairs fires, floods, and incapacitations, and prevents more for the duration.) has a fast cooldown


  • Poor reload time of 36 seconds, rivaled only by new US battleships to be added in the 9.11 update
  • Poor main battery traverse speed
  • Terrible accuracy at long range
  • Very poor AA defenses
  • Poorly protected and exposed citadel, extremely vulnerable when showing broadside
  • The Fast Damage Control Team (When activated, instantly repairs fires, floods, and incapacitations, and prevents more for the duration.) has a limited amount of charges


Availability of researchable upgrades for Knyaz Suvorov is as follows:

  • Hull: Upgrade to Hull (B) for ? XP. Research of this module unlocks progression to IV Gangut.
  • Gun Fire Control System: Upgrade to GFCS III mod.2 for an extra 10% range on the main battery.
Given the lack of accuracy of the main battery, a captain's decision to bypass the range upgrade would be understandable.

Optimal Configuration


The recommended upgrades for Knyaz Suvorov are as follows:

Commander Skills

With a limited number of damage control team uses, fire control and prevention becomes important.

Be mindful of the limited number of uses of your damage control team.


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

There is no standard permanent camouflage available for this ship.
