Player Opinion


Pros:

  • Best AP shell penetration and flight time among all Tier 9 techtree cruisers
  • Very high shell velocity and flat shell arcs
  • Tough armor profile for a cruiser, with thick deck and upper belt armor and "icebreaker" bow
  • Largest hitpoint pool of all Tier 9 techtree cruisers
  • Gains improved dispersion at mid-short range
  • Access to the Surveillance Radar (While active, detects all enemy ships within the specified radius, disregarding obstacles such as smoke and terrain.) consumable
  • Good concealment with all available improvements

Cons:

  • Disappointing HE damage output and fire chance
  • Slow main battery reload speed for a cruiser
  • Poor accuracy at long range
  • Slow main battery traverse speed
  • Huge turn radius and slow rudder shift time
  • Vulnerable citadel rises above the waterline
  • Poor firing angles
  • Surveillance Radar (While active, detects all enemy ships within the specified radius, disregarding obstacles such as smoke and terrain.) only lasts for 15 seconds
