Battle Levels

Pyotr Velikiy — Soviet Tier V battleship.

One of the variants of the "armored cruiser for the Baltic Sea" project, armed with 356 mm guns (Project 707). She was notable for her high speed and her main battery turrets, two facing forward and two aft, that were positioned along her centerline, with one turret at each end in a super-firing position.

Player Opinion

Pyotr Velikiy represents a major shift in the Russian Battleship tech tree, from the slower moving dreadnought-style warships of Knyaz Suvorov and Gangut, to a "semi - battlecruiser" style of game play. Commanders who have taken the helm of battleships such as Kongo will find her to be quite similar and comfortable to play in. Indeed, she has a striking resemblance to the Japanese battlecruiser, including her layout of eight 14-inch guns in four dual-mount turrets, poor handling characteristics, and excellent armor when angled or bow on. However, that is where the similarities end. Pyotr Velikiy excels at medium to short range combat, as is dictated by her rather short main battery firing range of just 16 kilometers when fully upgraded. Her accuracy becomes more lethal the closer she gets, while her slightly slower than average shell speed means that she won't over penetrate on most cruisers at this tier. Unfortunately, this does not set her up as a brawler. Her 33 second reload is behind most Battleships at her tier by a good 3 to 5 seconds, and gives up 7 seconds to the German König (though her guns are larger). Also, she suffers from exceptionally poor handling characteristics, compounding upon the issue of her above water citadel, which can easily be punished if she shows broadside.

Overall, Pyotr Velikiy brings a slightly different taste to the typical battleship flavor at her tier, mixing both aspects of battlecruisers and traditional battleships, with a slight hint of cruiser in the middle. Treat her as such, and she will reward you handsomely.


  • Great armor when angled, with great bow tanking potential.
  • Good accuracy at closer ranges. Turrets also have good firing angles for her tier.
  • Good top speed, for a Tier V battleship.
  • Somewhat fast turret traverse of just 45 seconds
  • The Fast Damage Control TeamWhen activated, instantly repairs fires, floods, and incapacitations, and prevents more for the duration. has fast reload.


  • Citadel is high and exposed on the top deck in the rear, making her very vulnerable to AP bombs. Torpedoes that hit the middle of the ship have a very good chance of knocking out her engine.
  • Armor, when completely broadside, stops working. Making citadel hits very likely.
  • long main battery reload time
  • Her high speed is mostly due to high length to beam ratio, not from engine power, which makes the ship lose a lot of speed when turning.
  • The Fast Damage Control TeamWhen activated, instantly repairs fires, floods, and incapacitations, and prevents more for the duration. has limited number (4) of uses.


Availability of researchable upgrades for Pyotr Velikiy is as follows:

  • Hull: Upgrade to Hull (B) for ? XP. Research of this module unlocks progression to VI Izmail.
  • Gun Fire Control System: Upgrade to GFCS V mod.2 (3600 XP) for an extra 10% range on the main battery.

Optimal Configuration


The recommended upgrades for Pyotr Velikiy are as follows:

Since it's not wise to get close enough to make a Secondaries Mod worthwhile, and AA is not strong enough to make an AA Mod of much use, the only real alternative is Main Battery Modification 2 : +15% to main battery traverse speed.. The turrets traverse painfully slowly, but improving them has to be weighed against improving their dispersion.

Commander Skills

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


Pyotr Velikiy equips the following consumables:

The captain must keep in mind that while his damage control team is quite good, it can respond to a limited number of incidents before becoming exhausted.


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