Gangut — Soviet Tier IV battleship.

Was part of the first series of dreadnought battleships built in Russia. She was armed with twelve main battery guns. The ship's features included a significant area of side armor and a general layout providing a full sideboard salvo at the widest possible angles.

Player Opinion

Performance

Coming from Knyaz Suvorov, Gangut is sure to feel like a welcome improvement thanks mainly to the centerline turret layout which allows 75% of the main battery to be fired while still giving favorable hull angles to deflect or absorb incoming fire. Captains who own either Oktyabrskaya Revolutsiya or Imperator Nikolai I will find adjusting to this ship to be a rather pain-free experience due to their similarities. However, since Gangut is a tech tree Russian battleship, it does not have the longer range accuracy found on the aforementioned premium ships and instead must close the distance with enemy ships to land more than singular random hits. This is somewhat easily accomplished by her 23-knot top speed which ties Gangut for second-fastest BB of the tier alongside Kaiser, meaning she will be able to (slowly) run down or outrun most other battleships in her matchmaking spread.

Pros:

  • Good rudder shift time when upgraded to B-hull.
  • Superstructure is small with well-armored conning towers to eat HE.
  • Hull armor scheme pairs well with main battery layout.
  • Main guns have good firing arcs and, for their limitations, shell ballistics.
  • Damage control has fast cooldowns in exchange for limited charges.

Cons:

  • Detection range is higher than maximum possible firing range without commander skills and camo.
  • Slowest unmodified main battery reload in the game along with Knyaz Suvorov.
  • Slightly improved, but still poor AA defense.
  • High and underprotected citadel is easily hit if not angled.
  • No torpedo blisters means only a 9% reduction in damage from torpedo hits

Research

The research path of Gangut is relatively simple – players are encouraged to first unlock the (B) hull to increase ship health, anti-aircraft armament, and rudder response time, and finish with the fire control upgrade, which allows for a modest firing range upgrade.

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

The recommended upgrades for Gangut are as follows:

Commander Skills

Consumables

Gangut 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.
