Mikhail Kutuzov — Soviet promo premium Tier VIII cruiser.

One of the most advanced light artillery cruisers in the Soviet Navy. The ship was as good as most of her foreign counterparts in terms of speed and armor. The cruiser's key advantage over other ships of her type was her main battery that boasted a very long firing range due to the successful design of turret mounts.

Mikhail Kutuzov is now preserved as a military museum ship in Novorossiysk, Russia.

Mikhail Kutuzov first went on sale on 11 January 2016 on the NA servers, and on 25 December 2015 on the EU servers. It has since been permanently removed from sale.

Player Opinion

Performance

One of the ships of Project 68bis (the Sverdlov class), Mikhail Kutuzov is one of the better premium cruisers released into the game. Sporting twelve 152mm guns and a very solid AA suite, she operates as a second line support ship without the need to get up close and personal with the enemy. Her anti-aircraft suite is outstanding, and with the Defensive AA Fire (While active, the damage per second of large caliber anti-aircraft guns is increased.) consumable equipped, she shreds enemy aircraft. One thing of note: aside from Iwaki Alpha and the British cruiser line, she's one of the few non-destroyers that has access to the Smoke Generator (While active, generates a smoke screen that blocks line-of-sight for both enemies and teammates.) consumable which is useful in many ways. She has her downsides, however, as she is very easy to citadel and her guns occasionally get incapacitated to outright knocked out. She plays very differently from her cousin in the tech tree, Chapayev, and those differences set her in a class by herself.


Pros:

  • Impressive penetration against her peers and rate of fire for a light cruiser.
  • Longest range of any Tier VIII cruiser.
  • Fairly durable for a light cruiser.
  • Fast turret traverse and shell velocity.
  • Good handling characteristics (rudder shift and turning radius).
  • Comes with at least two charges of Smoke Generator (While active, generates a smoke screen that blocks line-of-sight for both enemies and teammates.).

Cons:

  • Below average "alpha strike" damage.
  • Guns prone to getting knocked out or incapacitated.
  • Fairly large citadel protected by below average armor.
  • HE shell damage inferior to 155mm shells of Mogami.
  • AP shells have solid penetration capability against other cruisers, but are only useful against battleships at suicide range.

Research

As a Premium ship, Mikhail Kutuzov doesn't have any upgrades to research.
