Player Opinion

Performance

Smolensk is a powerful light cruiser at Tier X, comparable in many ways to the British Tier X cruiser, Minotaur. They are both equipped with rapid firing low-caliber guns mounted in turrets with extremely quick traverse time. Smolensk differs in that she has access to high-explosive ammunition, truly giving her a reputation as a firestarter. She is equipped with a few useful consumables, such as a Smoke Screen and Repair Party (While active, restores a fixed percentage of a ship's hit points each second.). These are essential for ensuring survivability in open water, as Smolensk has a "glass jaw." A poorly planned maneuver or exposure to large-caliber incoming fire will likely result in devastating hits. Players are advised to utilize these consumables regularly as well as engage from the cover of islands to protect the ship's vulnerable citadel.

Smolensk is equipped with torpedoes and offers a choice between Defensive AA Fire and Hydroacoustic Search in order to further her defensive capabilities against destroyers or aircraft seeking to harm her. Her low hit point pool requires that these threats be dealt with swiftly so she can return to cover and concealment to avoid being focused by enemy capital ships. Once properly positioned, Smolensk is extremely difficult to face, due to her capability to deal a high volume of fire over a short period of time. Players will benefit from studying maps in order to find the best positions to fire from. Smolensk also serves as a decent escort ship, especially in a division with another light cruiser or destroyer.

Pros:

  • High rate of fire and shell volume, exceptional DPM
  • Comfortable ballistics, high muzzle velocity and flat shell arcs
  • Extremely good at starting fires
  • Very quick turret traverse speed
  • Equipped with torpedoes
  • Access to the Smoke Generator (While active, generates a smoke screen that blocks line-of-sight for both enemies and teammates.) consumable
  • Excellent AA defenses

Cons:

  • Smallest healthpool of all Tier 10 cruisers and large, poorly armored citadel
  • Very poor stock gun range means skill points and/or upgrades must be used to improve it
  • Requires a fairly specialized captain skill build, not a good trainer
  • Lightweight shells tend to lose a lot of speed at long range
  • The Smoke Generator (While active, generates a smoke screen that blocks line-of-sight for both enemies and teammates.) consumable has only one charge stock

Research

As a premium ship, Smolensk doesn't have any upgrades to research.

If available, mount either Defensive AA Fire Modification 1 (Increases the action time, and accelerates the reload speed of the Defensive AA Fire consumable.: +20% action time. / -10% cooldown time.) or Hydroacoustic Search Modification 1 (Increases the action time of the Hydroacoustic Search consumable.: +20% action time.)} in Slot 2.

If available, mount Smoke Generator Modification 1 in Slot 3.

Commander Skills

Camouflage

As a premium ship, Smolensk comes included with Type 20 camouflage that lowers her detection radius, reduces the accuracy of incoming shells, reduces her repair costs, and increases the amount of experience she earns.
