A tier 5 Russian premium battleship is coming and we'll have 2 weeks in the bottom half of July to grind like mad to get it for free before it goes on sale.

I saw one YT video of it being played and it was described as a more manoueverable Nicolai which is kinda sorta true (2 of the 4 turrets face rearwards) but I liked what I saw.

However one of the missions is to do 300,000 damage to destroyers!!

The gimmick is that its repair has charges (I want to say four or five), is active for 15s and only has 5s cooldown.

While I thought it looked cool in Aerroons WiP video, I'm not sure that I would spend a lot of time to grind a tier 5 due to value vs. reward (and I own a Kutuzow).

38mm deck and armored freeboard have "troll" written all over them.

Dear god is this true if you're in a cruiser. Just add "tiny superstructure", "well-armoured turrets" and low citadel to the list.

Has anyone worked out a magic place to aim at these, because I've been struggling to do damage to the Ganguts using either 6" or 8" guns? Unless they give a flat broadside, they're just incredibly hard to pen. HE doesn't do much, while even Pensicola AP struggles (excluding one freak citadel).

It is a surprisingly tanky tier 5, it has sufficient AA for low tier CV's and a lot of firepower if you can keep tacking to one side for the length of an engagement.  It's a decent gift and it was nice of WG to either gift it or allow if for purchase when they did..

It's a very troll ship. Yesterday I was brawling with two BBs and I had 50% health and they were pretty much full health and I killed them both by being a filthy HE spammer and keeping good angling vs their AP. Picked up Arsonist after setting 3 un-repairable fires on a Konig and burning him to the water line. lol
