Player Opinion

Performance

The Mikoyan can be quite troublesome to play with without knowing its strengths. Unlike most lightly armed soviet cruiser it has an anemic 6 guns and a long reload of 13 seconds. In comparison the Kotovosky has 8 guns with 10 second reload, making it the better fire starter. However, the ship is highly manuverable for its tier, allowing the player to easily angle the ship back and forth to use all of her guns. The bread and butter of the ship is her 180mm AP shells with great ballistics. Combined with the spotting plane, you can citadel broadsiding cruisers more than 16kms away. Using the ships's speed and maneuverability, it is imperative to catch enemy cruisers off guard at long distances. The ship has practically paper for armour and will be devastated if shown even the slightest broadside to enemey ships. So, play the ship safely at long distances. HE will be useful for nose in BBs, but won't burn them to death. Try to use the concealment and speed to flank them and use AP. Overall, it is a very thinly armoured ship with anemic guns but good long range AP.

.

Pros:

  • Powerful AP shells with good damage and very high penetration
  • Fairly comfortable ballistics, high shell velocity and flat arcs
  • Equipped with torpedoes with very wide firing arcs
  • High top speed and good rudder shift
  • Excellent main battery range, which can be further improved with the Spotting Aircraft (While active, a spotter plane circles the ship enhancing main battery firing range.) consumable
  • Good concealment

Cons:

  • Only six guns with a long reload, poor DPM
  • Bad dispersion hampers ranged gunnery
  • Hilariously poor armor, the citadel belt is only 35mm thick and rises above the waterline
  • Very low hitpoint pool
  • Very weak and short ranged AA suite
  • Torpedoes are very short ranged
  • Massive turn radius, Mikoyan bleeds a lot of speed during hard turns

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