Special

Lazo B — Soviet special premium Tier VII cruiser.

The development of Project 68 began in 1937 as part of a plan to build light cruisers of a new class. It was planned to build 26 cruisers of this class between 1938 and 1947; however, not a single ship out of the seven laid down had been completed by the time World War II shook the Soviet Union. Two cruisers under construction in Mykolaiv were blown up by the Germans during their retreat.

Lazo B was first released for sale on 3 November 2023.

Lazo B, or Lazo Black, is a clone of Lazo with an attractive black skin.

Lazo B is a Tier VII Soviet light cruiser that inherits its play style from its tech tree sister Shchors while being based upon the stock hull of Chapayev.

Captains will be happy with Lazo B’s primary firepower which comes in the form of twelve 152mm rifles with a nine second reload and excellent range of 17.3km. The ballistics on these guns provide the opportunity to kite away and rain fire down upon enemy battleships with relative ease, making use of her unique Rapid Takeoff SpotterExtends the main battery's firing range. Short action time and high reload speed. consumable for near constant uptime. While the guns may lag behind Shchors for damage output due to the slightly lower rate of fire, the additional effective range helps to compensate. Her AP shells have relatively high armor penetration for the caliber, meaning they can be useful against cruisers that expose their broadsides; however, her high explosive shells will still be her primary ammo choice. Consequently, captains will want to invest in the Inertial Fuse for HE Shells commander skill to increase the penetration of her HE shells to 32mm.

The Rapid Takeoff SpotterExtends the main battery's firing range. Short action time and high reload speed. of Lazo B compliments the ship in its intended role of a long-range light cruiser by further increasing her range to 20.7km. A unique trait of this consumable is that compared to other cruisers, Lazo B only has a 15 second cooldown before she can use her Spotting Aircraft again.

Lazo B, like other Soviet cruisers, comes equipped a set of short range torpedoes that captains may wish to use in closer range brawls or to assassinate overly assertive battleships. These torpedoes should be considered a last-ditch weapon, though, as Lazo B lacks the armor to reliably deliver them within range of an enemy battleship or heavy cruiser.

Captains will find Lazo B’s maneuverability closely resembles that of Shchors, making her strong in the kiting role while the added armor affords her the chance to better sustain herself against incoming fire. The additional 4,100 hit points further increases her survivability, while she also benefits from a slight improvement in concealment. However, captains should be aware that while her armor is improved over Shchors, she is still very lightly armored and caution is advised should they opt to push into close range. Her anti-aircraft battery is a slight downgrade from Shchors, maintaining the same long-range and short-range firepower but reducing the damage output of her mid-range guns.

Overall, players who like Shchors and Chapayev will be right at home with Lazo B, finding she plays in much the same way with only a few minor differences. She is best played at long range, making use of her exceptional gun ballistics and Rapid Takeoff SpotterExtends the main battery's firing range. Short action time and high reload speed. to get the best results while actively avoiding pushing aggressively until later in the game when she is less likely to be focused by multiple ships.

Pros:

  • She is in essence an A-hull Chapayev, meaning she receives a better health pool than Shchors.
  • Long main battery firing range at 17.3km range.
  • Very good ballistics for 152mm shells.
  • High explosive shells have high fire chance and can pack a punch with the captain skill Inertia Fuse for HE Shells.
  • Her AP has high penetration compared to many of her light cruiser counterparts.
  • Rapid Takeoff SpotterExtends the main battery's firing range. Short action time and high reload speed. has very short cooldown, allowing Lazo B to consistently maintain maximum firing range.

Cons:

  • Poor armor protection; lack of angling and dodging can result in huge damage taken.
  • Although good at medium ranges, her ballistics become poor, especially combined with the range given to her with Rapid Takeoff SpotterExtends the main battery's firing range. Short action time and high reload speed.
  • She has 1 second slower reload compared to her counterpart Shchors
  • Short-range "suicide" torpedoes.
  • Poor maneuverability compared to other Tier VII cruisers.

Research

As a premium ship, Lazo B has no module upgrades to research.

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

The recommended upgrades for Lazo B are as follows:

Since Lazo B plays similar to her tech tree counterparts, a standard build that emphasizes her survivability and main armaments is a viable options. Alternatively, captains may elect to use Spotting Aircraft Modification 1 Increases the action time of the Spotting Aircraft and Rapid Takeoff Spotter consumables.: +30% action time. to capitalize on the kiting play-style that favors Lazo B.

Commander Skills

Lazo B is very similar to Shchors, and thus many of the same recommended skills will overlap between the two ships.

Consumables

Lazo B equips the following consumables:

Camouflage

As a premium ship, Lazo B comes with Default permanent camouflage and a set of permanent combat bonuses.

Signals

Lazo B captains should mount standard signal flags to improve the ship's performance in battle. Sierra Mike (+5% to the ship's maximum speed.) flags are highly recommended to increase the ship's top speed. India X-Ray (+1% chance of causing a fire for bombs and shells with a caliber above 160mm. / +0.5% chance of causing a fire for bombs and shells with a caliber below 160mm. / +5% to the risk of your ship's magazine detonating.) and Victor Lima (+1% chance of causing a fire for bombs and shells with a caliber above 160mm / +0.5% chance of causing a fire for bombs and shells with a caliber below 160mm. / +4% chance of causing flooding.) flags should be mounted to improve the ship's main battery fire chance. November Foxtrot (-5% reload time on all consumables.) flags can also be mounted to decrease consumable cooldown time.


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