Venezia AP shell nerfs remove the need for this section describing the improved ricochet angles, instead I've rewrote it to focus more on the offensive utility.

?The gameplay of ''{{#var:ship_name}}'' very much revolves around her offensive abilities. Captains who may have been put-off or disappointed in the performance of the Italian SAP shells in previous tiers should be happy to hear that ''{{#var:ship_name}}'' has improved, albeit slightly, penetration angles compared to all previous vessels in the line; 75-80 degrees instead of 70-80 (See the [[Ship:Ammo#Semi-Armor-Piercing|Ammo]] page for details). While not a huge difference, the increased range of angles in which she can deal damage, combined with the extra three guns, allows her to do some noticeably larger chunks of damage with each salvo. Seeing damage numbers as high as 12-15,000 on angled cruisers and some battleships is quite common, and against lightly armored ships, numbers as high as 20,000 are completely possible. Captains shouldn't discredit her AP shells either; while lacking in penetration, a flat broadside of an enemy cruiser will always be susceptible to the monstrous weight of ''{{#var:ship_name}}'''s broadside firepower. +The gameplay of ''{{#var:ship_name}}'' very much revolves around her offensive abilities.

 Given the nature of high-tier armor schemes (namely the "all-or-nothing" scheme), the SAP shells actually end up performing quite a bit better against battleships than they would at lower tiers. Battleships with extensive 32 mm plating will take massive damage from SAP; German and Russian battleships, however, require more precise aim due to their better armored extremities. When facing the Tier VIII-X battleships of either nation, captains should either aim for the superstructure and high on bow/stern sections, or simply switch to AP if the enemy present flat enough side. While her 15-gun broadside is certainly impressive, her second forward-facing turret has rather poor forward angles. Captains should be wary of trying to use all three forward turrets in engagements where enemy AP is of concern. Given the nature of high-tier armor schemes (namely the "all-or-nothing" scheme), the SAP shells actually end up performing quite a bit better against battleships than they would at lower tiers.

Player Opinion

Performance

Venezia sits atop the Italian Heavy Cruiser tree as the pinnacle of the gameplay style developed throughout the line. Not only does she feature an extra three barrels over Brindisi before her, but also significantly improved armor and unique penetration angles for her SAP shells. Captains who have made it to the end of the Italian Cruiser line will find Venezia to be an absolute upgrade over previous ships in the line.

The gameplay of Venezia very much revolves around her offensive abilities. With the improved autobounce angles on Italian SAP shells, seeing damage numbers as high as 12-15,000 on angled cruisers and some battleships is quite common, and against lightly armored ships, numbers as high as 20,000 are completely possible. Bear in mind that due to the massive alpha strike that Venezia offers, you may saturate areas of the target much faster than using her HE slinging counterparts. This can be dealt with by alternating between the different sections of the target ship. Captains shouldn't discredit her AP shells either; while lacking in penetration, a flat broadside of an enemy cruiser will always be susceptible to the monstrous weight of Venezia's broadside firepower.

Given the nature of high-tier armor schemes (namely the "all-or-nothing" scheme), the SAP shells actually end up performing quite a bit better against battleships than they would at lower tiers. Battleships with extensive 32 mm plating will take massive damage from SAP; German and Russian battleships, however, require more precise aim due to their better armored extremities. When facing the Tier VIII-X battleships of either nation, captains should either aim for the superstructure and high on bow/stern sections, or simply switch to AP if the enemy present flat enough side. While her 15-gun broadside is certainly impressive, her second forward-facing turret has rather poor forward angles. Captains should be wary of trying to use all three forward turrets in engagements where enemy AP is of concern.

Venezia also features some very noticeable improvements to her armor. Unlike previous ships in the line, Venezia features an internal belt and spaced armor, much like that of Henri IV. Her citadel deck is also quite a bit thicker, and her upper deck is increased from the 25 mm of Amalfi and Brindisi to a unified 30 mm over her mid-section. Her aft and stern deck and side plating remain 25 mm, but Venezia features an extended belt armor of 40 mm all the way to her bow and most of the stern. Unlike the 50 mm sections of the two previous ships, Venezia's lower-thickness plate actually extends above the waterline enough to make brawling a possibility. Venezia also enjoys a small increase to her torpedo protection compared to previous vessels.

Captains should take advantage of her increased survival and smoke to make riskier hit-and-run attacks against unsuspecting enemies. Her high speed allows her to rapidly adjust position to make better use of her SAP or to put a well-placed AP salvo into an enemy broadside. In a pinch, her above-average armor and torpedoes can even allow her to brawl enemy battleships, though this certainly isn't an ideal scenario.

By the time most captains reach Venezia, they should be somewhat aware of the differences in the playstyle of Italian cruisers to that of cruisers of other nations. Anyone who enjoyed the previous ships, or where on the fence about the SAP shells, should be pleased with the improvements of Venezia over previous ships. Play her to her strengths, and Venezia can make a huge difference in the outcome of a battle.

Pros:

  • With fifteen (15) 203mm guns, Venezia's broadside can be devastating
  • SAP shells benefit from improved penetration angles compared to previous ships in the line
  • Excellent ballistics, high shell velocity and flat arcs on both SAP and AP
  • Incredible handling for a vessel of this size, with great turning radius and blazing-fast speed
  • The Exhaust Smoke Generator (Generates a smoke screen that allows the ship to remain undetected at full speed.) allows to quickly disengage while maintaining full speed
  • Good continuous damage output on her anti-aircraft guns
  • Extended above the waterline belt reaches the tip of the bow and is 40mm thick
  • Armed with torpedoes with long range and low detectability
  • Very good turret angles for a ship with 5 turrets

Cons:

  • Poor concealment
  • Horrible smoke firing penalty
  • Very poor reload speed for a heavy cruiser
  • Poorly armored turrets can be disabled/destroyed often
  • Spotted from the air well before its AA defenses can activate
  • SAP shells lose a lot of effectiveness if they cannot penetrate or hit saturated areas
  • Lacks utility tools such as Surveillance Radar (While active, detects all enemy ships within the specified radius, disregarding obstacles such as smoke and terrain.) and Hydroacoustic Search (While active, detects all enemy ships and torpedoes within the specified radius, without regard of obstacles such as smoke and terrain.)
  • Anti-aircraft armament has a poor range of only 5.2 kilometers
  • The placement of her turrets allows only 2 of her 5 turrets to be available when bow-in

Research

Venezia has no modules to research.

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

The recommended upgrades for Venezia are as follows:

Commander Skills

Venezia, like the ships before her, can somewhat afford to have a rather unique skill tree build. Skills such as Inertia Fuse for HE Shells and Demolition Expert are completely irrelevant for her, so points that would normally be allocated to those skills on other cruisers can be spent elsewhere. That being said, the remainder of the build is mostly standard for a cruiser, with the only notable skill of importance being Expert Loader, as efficient shell-type switching is one of the key aspects of her gameplay, and Radio Position Finding, which gives her an idea of which direction torpedoes are most likely coming from and some utility in hunting down destroyers, which with her powerful SAP and heavy broadside, can oneshot most full hp DDs. If possible, captains should put unique commander Luigi Sansonetti onto Venezia, as he gives many benefits from an improved Expert Loader skill similar to the one found on the US special captains, to talents that increase the range from her stock 17.1km to 18.5km after sinking an enemy and a 15% decrease in reload speed after earning the Confederate achievement.

Consumables

Venezia can equip the following consumables:

Camouflage

Type 1, 2, or 5 camouflage can be equipped for credits; Types 1 or 5 are recommended at a minimum to reduce detectibility range.

Players who wish to spend doubloons can equip Venezia with Type 20 camouflage that lowers her detection radius, reduces the accuracy of incoming shells, reduces her repair costs, and increases the amount of experience she earns.
