Battle Levels

Ognevoi — Soviet Tier VIII destroyer.

Developed from the Gnevny-class destroyers, the ship (Project 30) featured a larger displacement. In contrast to her predecessors, she boasted improved armor protection for artillery and a more powerful torpedo armament.

Player Opinion


Ognevoi represents a relatively major shift compared to other Soviet destroyers, which is important for the player to realize as it will surprise them in both fortunate and unfortunate ways. Ognevoi experiences a loss of six knots of speed compared to her predecessor, Minsk, but has a much tighter turning circle. She features four guns in two twin turrets compared to Minsk's five singles, but starts off with 10.0 km ranged torpedoes compared to the 4.0 km options available to previous destroyers. Although her concealment is identical, as a tier VIII destroyer, she gains access to Concealment System Modification 1 (-10% to detectability radius. / +5% to the maximum dispersion of enemy shells that fire on your ship.), allowing her to achieve superior detection.

Ognevoi's turrets can be a mixed blessing. Once upgraded they have more than double the traverse speed of Minsk’s open mounts, which allows the player to handle their ship more aggressively, with less far fear of throwing off their aim. However, with only two turrets, losing a single turret can be severely crippling to Ognevoi, effectively halving the ship's firepower. Thankfully, losing turrets entirely is a rarity once Main Armaments Modification 1 (-20% to the risk of main battery becoming incapacitated. / +50% to main battery survivability. / -20% to main battery repair time. / -20% to the risk of torpedo tubes becoming incapacitated. / +50% to torpedo tubes survivability. / -20% to torpedo tubes repair time.) is installed, and the benefits of their traverse rate and superior ballistics far outweighs this risk. Her 10.0 km torpedo range gives Ognevoi a decent fallback should the worst occur. While their speed and damage is heavily underwhelming, the rapid reloading rate of these torpedoes compared to other torpedoboats at her tier enable her to output far more torpedoes. For example, over the course of five minutes she may (theoretically) output 32.6 torpedoes, whereas her closest competitor in this regard, Z-23, will only drop 26.7 torpedoes. Players should use this to their advantage, as they are less able to rely on the potential for an individual launch to be devastating.

Ognevoi is one of the few Soviet Destroyers with decent concealment, giving her an almost 4.0 km stealth-torpedoing window. She's able to get close to most targets and even some other destroyers without being noticed, but players should be aware than not only are Japanese destroyers still stealthier, but also many of the American destroyers, which are very dangerous opponents at close range due to their rate of fire.

Having said that, once upgraded Ognevoi mounts the same excellent 130 mm guns that Khabarovsk uses, and they are quite competitive at Tier VIII. Their high rate-of-fire and accuracy make them ideal for harassing distracted targets, and cruisers that wander too close showing their broadsides will find their HP deleted quite rapidly from repeated citadel penetrations. With the faster turret traverse, Ognevoi can better handle itself in close quarters combat, but it will still lose to American destroyers with their faster rate-of-fire. Perhaps the greatest benefit the faster traverse rate will have is the ability to maneuver heavily at medium to long range like other destroyers, previously difficult for Soviet destroyers.


  • Small turning circle compared to the other Russian destroyers.
  • Workable speed. Not the best by any stretch of the imagination, but hey, it's way better than Akizuki's.
  • Turret traverse is incredibly good compared to its predecessors, and maintains decent rate of fire
  • 10.0 km torpedo range with relatively rapid reload rates allows for launching torpedoes from stealth at mid-ranges.
  • Gains access to the Defensive AA Fire (While active, the damage per second of large caliber anti-aircraft guns is increased.) consumable.
  • Gains access to the Repair Party (While active, restores a fixed percentage of a ship's hit points each second.) consumable.


  • All main guns and torpedoes are concentrated in only two mounts each, thus disabling hits will halve firepower
  • Concealment, although decent, is still inferior to dangerous gunboats such as the destroyers of America and Pan-Asia.
  • Torpedoes, despite having decent range and stealth, have mediocre speed and damage


Quickly research the upgraded main battery 130 mm/55 B-2-U to benefit from their superior ballistics and more than twice as rapid a traverse rate. Then research the (B) Hull, as the (B) Hull increases the torpedo mounts of Ognevoi from triple-tube launchers to quintuple-tube ones, significantly increases the anti-air power, lowers rudder shift time, and unlocks the option for Defensive AA Fire (While active, the damage per second of large caliber anti-aircraft guns is increased.) consumable in the Engine Boost (While active, increases a ship's speed by a fixed percentage.) consumable slot. Finally, research the upgraded Gun Fire Control System for better main battery range.

Optimal Configuration


The recommended upgrades for Ognevoi are as follows:

Captains who wish to forego some stealth in favor of being a harder target to hit should also consider Steering Gears Modification 3 (-80% to steering gears repair time. / -40% to rudder shift time.) in Slot 5.

Captains who have one of the rare Engine Boost Modification 1 (+50% to duration of Engine Boost.) upgrades and has the Sierra Mike (+5% to the ship's maximum speed.) signal equipped, are encouraged to replace the Propulsion Modification 1 upgrade, as it extends the Engine Boost (While active, increases a ship's speed by a fixed percentage.) consumable duration by 50%, thereby allowing her to maintain a max speed of 42.0 knots for three minutes.

Commander Skills


Ognevoi can equip the following consumables:

It is worthwhile to note that Ognevoi has very similar main armament array to American destroyer Benson and similar concealment. Players used to equipping Benson with Defensive AA Fire (While active, the damage per second of large caliber anti-aircraft guns is increased.) instead of Engine Boost (While active, increases a ship's speed by a fixed percentage.) may find it worthwhile on Ognevoi. However, it should be noted that the anti-air potential of Ognevoi is somewhat weaker than Benson’s.


Type 1, 2, or 5 camouflages can be equipped for credits; Type 1 or 5 are recommended at a minimum, as they reduce detectability range.

Players who wish to spend doubloons can equip Ognevoi with Type 18 camouflage that lowers her detection radius, reduces the accuracy of incoming shells, reduces her repair costs, and increases the amount of experience she earns.
