Player Opinion


Pros:

  • Good rudder shift time and turning circle make Vanguard great for dodging torpedos.
  • Most accurate tier 8 Battleship thanks to relatively low dispersion and high sigma.
  • Concealment is able to be dropped to as low as 12km
  • Excellent medium range anti-aircraft armament
  • Has 1/4 pen, high damage and high fire chance on her HE shells.

Cons:

  • Armament can feel lacking against higher tier Battleships.
  • Very bad turret traverse angles.
  • Takes large amounts of damage from High Explosive rounds that can penetrate her 32mm plating.
  • Large citadel makes attempting to use all turrets very risky.
