Player Opinion


Pros:

  • Has access to Semi-Armor Piercing main battery ammunition that can deal tons of damage on cruisers or chew battleship superstructures.
  • Flat ballistics and fast shells, which make aiming and leading very comfortable on this ship.
  • Great turret angles and turret traverse, coupled with the great side armor (300mm) makes Caracciolo a great kitting, pushing and tanking ship.
  • Decent AA if you don't counts its range.
  • The best torpedo protection at tier 7.
  • Large quantities of secondaries.
  • Excellent speed of 29 kts.
  • Great concealment for a tier VII battleship; only Poltava is better by a few meters.

Cons:

  • Small health pool for a tier VII battleship.
  • Does not have access to High Explosive main battery ammunition.
  • Slow main battery reload time of 33 seconds.
  • Inconsistent dispersion of main battery salvos.
  • Despite good armor protection, showing broadside will often result in citadels.
  • While the AA is decent, it's mostly short range, meaning it won't stop strikes.
  • While she has a lot of secondaries, most of them are 90mm, meaning they won't pen DDs.

Research

Recommended module research order:

  1. Hull (B) For maneuverability (only 4% more health). Research of this module unlocks progression to Vittorio Veneto.
  2. Gun Fire Control System: Upgrade to SDT 7 mod.2 for an extra 10% range on the main battery.
Due to the small gain in health, some captains may prefer the range buff first.
