Player Opinion

Performance

Tier 5 Italian cruiser Raimondo Montecuccoli is moderately similar to its Tier 6 Premium cousin, Duca D'Aosta. Much like other Italian cruisers in the mid-tier range, the ship boasts acceptable artillery, decent torpedoes, abysmal armor, and solid maneuverability.

The ship's 152mm guns are arranged in generally the same format of the Duca D'Aosta, with 8 cannons in 4 turrets. However Montecuccoli has a significantly worse reload speed and abysmal turret traverse. The latter issue can be negated somewhat through the use of ship upgrades and commander skills. Most of the time, a commander will find themselves exclusively using SAP shells unless a ship is in close proximity and broadsiding, in which AP will suffice in dealing solid damage. There may be trouble penetrating higher-tier battleships, but there won't usually be an issue with cruisers and almost never an issue dealing damage to destroyers.

The torpedoes on the Montecuccoli are less of an offensive tool and more of a way of punishing unwary enemies. With a slow speed of only 51 knots but a range of 10 km, captains may be pleasantly surprised to launch torpedoes, sail away, then score an unsuspecting kill on an equally unsuspecting enemy ship. With a 55 second reload and only 4 tubes, one should not try to use these in truly offensive actions. The AA on the ship is decent enough, capable of holding its own against enemy planes, especially if the captain has the fighter aircraft consumable in cooperation with the AA.

Where the Montecuccoli shines is its maneuverability. Owing to the ship's motto Con risolutezza, con rapidità (Resolute and Rapid), the ship has a max speed of 37 knots, the second fastest Tier 5 cruiser (Émile Bertin has a max speed of 39). This partly makes up for the lack of armor, since the ship's speed is its armor. The rudder shift time is excellent, and with both of these combined the ship has good maneuverability, allowing it to strike fast, dodge enemy shells and torpedoes, and escape from harm at a whim.

Montecuccoli fits the glass cannon archetype of Italian cruisers. Captains will have a difficult time learning how to sail this ship, but as long as she stays relatively close to other ships to make up for her lack of armor, she can harass, and if one is diligent, sink, enemy ships with her SAP shells and torpedoes. Just don't show anything resembling broadside to enemies, or one is bound to be sent to the bottom of the ocean.

Pros:

  • Relatively fast for a cruiser, nearly able to out-run some destroyers in a straight line.
  • Fast reloading torpedoes with a 10km range.
  • Sharp turn radius for a Cruiser.
  • Has some degree of Armor, second only to the Furutaka, also has access to Exhaust Smoke Generator.

Cons:

  • Second slowest reload speed of all tier 5 Cruisers, only Furutaka is slower. Turrets also have sluggish traverse speed.
  • Torpedoes are the slowest among all tier 5 tech tree cruisers. They also are the 2nd weakest and the Montecuccoli only packs 2 per side.
  • Standard Exhaust Smoke Generator only has one charge.
  • Can be fairly prone to Engine or Rudder incapacitation when under repeated fire.

Research

Availability of researchable upgrades for Raimondo Montecuccoli is as follows:

  • Hull: Upgrade to Hull (B) for more hit points, better AA and faster rudder shift time. Research of this module unlocks progression to Trento.
  • Gun Fire Control System: Upgrade to SDT 5 mod. 2 for an extra 10% range on the main battery.
