Player Opinion

Performance

Poltava is a premium tier 7 Russian battleship that takes several departures from her tech tree peer, Sinop. While armor remains roughly the same, with 25mm of armor covering most of the deck and a vulnerable citadel, the primary difference lies in her main battery armament. Poltava has 3x3 356mm main battery guns, as opposed to Sinop’s 3x3 406mm guns. This means that Poltava cannot overmatch 25mm of armor and cannot deal with bow-on enemy battleships at her tier as easily. Additionally, her turrets have less side armor and get disabled much more easily, so the Preventative Maintenance captain skill and Main Armaments Modification 1 upgrade are both heavily recommended. In exchange for these downgrades, Poltava’s guns gains better dispersion at long ranges compared to Sinop’s.

Poltava is also 2 knots faster than Sinop, for a base speed of 29 knots. With better concealment, Poltava can avoid detection for longer and get into better positions to catch enemy cruisers by surprise, as well as reposition throughout the match. Like the other Russian battleships, Poltava has an enhanced Damage Control Party consumable cooldown with limited charges and an exposed citadel, so captains should take care to avoid showing too much broadside, as the vulnerable citadel can be exploited by enemy battleships.

Pros:

  • Best 356mm guns in the game in terms of AP penetration and muzzle velocity
  • Good HE shell fire chance
  • Good top speed of 29 knots and fairly quick rudder shift for a battleship
  • Good firing arcs
  • Has an "icebreaker" bow above the waterline as additional protection when bow-on
  • Same short-cooldown Damage Control Party (When activated, instantly repairs fires, floods, and incapacitations, and prevents more for the duration.) as techtree Soviet battleships

Cons:

  • The citadel sits above the waterline, making Poltava very vulnerable when caught broadside
  • Small gun caliber for its tier, cannot overmatch 25mm of armor
  • Gunnery can be frustrating at times due to low sigma (1.7)
  • Sluggish turret traverse speed
  • Damage Control Party (When activated, instantly repairs fires, floods, and incapacitations, and prevents more for the duration.) has limited charges, it's entirely possible to run out if mishandled
  • Enormous turning circle
  • Different playstyle compared to techtree Soviet battleships, can take some time to adjust

Research

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

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

The recommended upgrades for Poltava are as follows:

Commander Skills

Consumables

Poltava can equip the following consumables:

Camouflage

As a premium ship, Poltava comes included with Type 10 camouflage that lowers her detection radius, reduces the accuracy of incoming shells, reduces her repair costs, and increases the amount of experience she earns.

Signals

As with most battleships, players should focus on utilizing signals that maximize their survivability such as India Delta, Juliet Yankee Bissowtwo, and India Yankee

Note: Use of the Juliet Charlie signal makes detonation impossible.
