Shchors — Soviet Tier VII cruiser.

This ship was designed as a light "squadron escorting" cruiser (Project 28). She boasted high speed and powerful artillery but her armor protection was inferior that of her foreign contemporaries.

Player Opinion

Performance

Shchors is widely regarded as a moderate upgrade from Budyonny, featuring one more turret and more hit points. She even has less armor in some aspects compared to Budyonny, losing citadel armor for more even plating across the ship. Compared to its opponents at Tier VII, it features more range than the others besides Yorck. However, having 6-inch guns at a tier where heavy cruisers start to become dominant is a serious drawback, because Shchors’ armor is already weak enough to make it vulnerable to even destroyer-caliber shells. In addition, Shchors shares the common "odd citadel" all Russian cruisers have, which makes the citadel rise high out of the water and makes over-penetrations more likely.

Essentially, think of Shchors as a rapid-fire sniper that will be punished for closing to medium range of almost any other ship.

Pros:

  • Long range (16.8 km) that can be extended to over 20 km with a Spotting Aircraft (While active, a spotter plane circles the ship enhancing main battery firing range.).
  • Rapid-fire guns that can lay down constant fire on targets.
  • High explosive shells can set fires reliably due to 12% fire chance and high rate of fire.
  • Rather odd citadel location and weak armor can be a perk to avoid being flattened by battleships; many shells will over penetrate.
  • Fast speed at 35.5 knots.

Cons:

  • Horrid anti-aircraft suite for a Tier VII cruiser.
  • Pathetic armor protection; will take large amounts of damage from almost any shells fired at it.
  • Large detection radius.
  • Torpedoes only have a 4km range, which makes them useful only in emergency situations.
  • Armor piercing rounds don't perform all that well against other cruisers.
  • Extremely large turning radius of whopping 900 meters (even larger than most battleships!)

Research

Shchors is incredibly vulnerable to incoming fire regardless of how many hit points she has; the Fire Control upgrade is likely the best place to invest early experience gains in order to increase the range at which she can engage enemy targets.

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

The recommended upgrades for Shchors are as follows:

Commander Skills

Consumables

Shchors can equip the following consumables:

Camouflage

Type 1, 2, or 5 camouflage can be equipped for credits; Types 2 or 5 are recommended at a minimum to reduce the accuracy of incoming shells.

Players who wish to spend doubloons can equip Shchors with Type 17 camouflage that lowers her detection radius, reduces the accuracy of incoming shells, reduces her repair costs, and increases the amount of experience she earns.

Signals

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