Player Opinion


Pros:

  • The only Italian battleship with 406mm guns, can overmatch 27mm armor
  • Good main battery traverse speed
  • Good main battery firing angles
  • Excellent AP penetration and shell velocity
  • Has SAP shells with improved penetration angles that can deal devastating damage to lightly armored targets
  • Thickly armored midsection, with a 70mm upper belt and 55mm deck
  • Good speed, rudder shift and turn radius for a Tier 9 battleship

Cons:

  • Small hitpoint pool, only 100 hitpoints higher than Jean Bart
  • Poor main battery reload speed
  • Despite having decent sigma and dispersion, accuracy at range is average at best
  • Second shortest main battery range in tier/class, only Lepanto is worse
  • Average concealment, with a minimum surface detection of 13.2km
  • Very short AA range
  • Lacks the Exhaust Smoke Generator (Generates a smoke screen that allows the ship to remain undetected at full speed.) consumable
  • Incredibly vulnerable to citadel damage when showing broadside
