Player Opinion

Performance

Being the last step before the Tier X ship Kreml, Sovetsky Soyuz continues the gameplay of Vladivostok and will feel comfortable in the hands of those that also enjoyed the Tier VIII.

One of Sovetsky Soyuz's key strength continues to be her main armament at medium to close ranges, where she can accurately nail targets that were overconfident and opened up at the wrong time. A fast recharging Damage Control Party ensures that she can withstand Damage over Time for a short period, however the finite charges can betray the captain and leave Sovetsky Soyuz helpless towards Damage over Time. For that reason alone is the usage of Superintendent and Premium Damage Control Party a fundamental part of every successful Sovetsky Soyuz-build. Keeping an angle with Sovetsky Soyuz is essential, as her citadel extens well above the waterline.

What this means is that the captain must choose the correct location and time to exercise a push, which then gets executed in full strength. Assisstance through teammates will help overwhelming enemy forces, but a careful eye must be kept on the surroundings to prevent shots to hit the unangled side of Sovetsky Soyuz.

Pros:

  • Shares the good medium to close range accuracy of her predecessors
  • Main guns hit hard, when they hit
  • Continues the trend of strong internal bow armor, making citadels from Yamato and Musashi through the bow very difficult
  • 60mm upper deck allows Sovetsky Soyuz to shatter almost all cruiser HE shells
  • Rapid cooldown Damage Control Party
  • Large hitpool

Cons:

  • Elevated citadel which is prone to hits when Sovetsky Soyuz is not properly angled
  • Tapered belt design provides minimal protection against opponent battleships but does fuse their shells
  • Anti-Air-Defense does not get noticably improved over Vladivostok, making her very prone to airstrikes
  • Large turning circle
  • Limited charges of her Damage Control Party
  • At longer ranges, Sovetsky Soyuz struggles to land meaningful hits
  • Short ranged for a Tier IX battleship
  • Main battery turrets get knocked out often
  • Relatively slow for a Tier IX battleship
  • Underwhelming secondary armament

Research

Availability of researchable upgrades for Sovetsky Soyuz is as follows:

  • Hull: Upgrade to Hull (B) for 64,000 XP.
  • Gun Fire Control System: Upgrade to the improved GFCS for 36,000 XP.
Upgrading the Gun Fire Control System should take priority, as Sovetsky Soyuz's main battery range is very lackluster. After that follow up with the B-Hull

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

The recommended upgrades for Sovetsky Soyuz are as follows:

  • Slot 1: Main Armaments Modification 1
  • Slot 2: Damage Control System Modification 1
  • Slot 3: Aiming Systems Modification 1
  • Slot 4: Damage Control System Modification 2
  • Slot 5: Concealment System Modification 1
  • Slot 6: Main Battery Modification 3

Commander Skills

Key skills for Sovetsky Soyuz commanders are all skills that improve the survivability, with a special mention for Superintendent as it adds an additional charge of the Damage Control Party.

Consumables

Sovetsky Soyuz can equip the following consumables:

Camouflage

As a Tech Tree ship, Sovetsky Soyuz does not come with a permanent camoflage out of the box. However, if the player so wishes she can be equipped with a Type 19 camoflage that reduces her concealment, increases the dispersion of incoming shells, increases the XP gain by 100% and reduces the service cost by -20%.
