Battle Levels

Leone — Italian special premium Tier VI destroyer.

The Leone class was based on the improved design of the Mirabello class. In particular, the new ships featured 120 mm guns positioned along the centerline. During World War II, the lead ship participated in the interception of British convoys crossing the Suez Canal. After the seizure of Somalia by Great Britain, the remnants of the Italian fleet in Africa attacked the Suez Canal and Port Said, trying to break through to the Mediterranean. In preparation for the attack, Leone ran aground and caught fire. The crew abandoned the destroyer, and she was finished off by her sister ship Pantera.

Leone first went on sale on 06 March 2021.

Player Opinion


Warning. The data presented in the AA Defense sidebar section may be incorrect.
For a graphic summary of ships Tiers VIII thru XI see LittleWhiteMouse's "Actual AA DPS".


  • Eight (8) main battery guns, the highest count among Tier 6 destroyers
  • High shell arcs allow Leone to shoot from behind islands
  • Very good torpedo reload speed
  • Torpedoes have long range and very low detectability
  • The Smoke GeneratorWhile active, generates a smoke screen that blocks line-of-sight for both enemies and teammates. has a long emission time and the clouds last for long, like with USN destroyers


  • Small hitpoint pool
  • Very large target with fragile modules
  • Slow main battery traverse speed
  • Very poor main battery rate of fire
  • High shell drag, combined with high arcs, makes hitting targets at range difficult
  • Very poor firing arcs, must show a near-full broadside to unmask all guns
  • Torpedo speed and burst damage are low
  • Virtually helpless against plane attacks
  • Slow, with a base speed of 34 knots
  • Poor concealment
  • No ASW armament
