    @Keyan_TTK How so? Italian ships' thing seems to be "low range, low detection", which is pretty much the complete opposite of French ships.

    Indeed, but the two Ducas are also fast for their tier, nice rudder shift and quick turning guns. The French ships are more easily spotted, but they have Speed Boost and nice fire chance. The Italians don't have Speed Boost and their HE is crap, but they're stealthlier.

    That said, if you're not harassing, at least you can better support the DDs, a thing the French ships aren't well equipped to do.

    The bigger Duca gets a Heal in her latest build.

    ST, Italian Cruiser Duca degli Abruzzi, tier VII

    Repair Party consumable is added for the testing phase:

    Restores 162 HP per second. Duration - 28 seconds. Repair Party I cooldown - 120 seconds, 2 charges. Repair Party II cooldown - 80 seconds, 3 charges.

    Available consumables: Slot 1 - Damage Control Party; Slot 2 - Hydroacoustic Search; Slot 3 - Defensive AA Fire/Spotting Aircraft; Slot 4 - Repair Party.

    These changes are designed to improve the ship's survivability, her average time in combat and make her more competitive compared to the other tier VII cruisers.
    Sure, like all the cruisers, she can't really tank hits, but I thought her main problem was her anemic damage output against anything that angles....

    Not an official WG post but a comment by LWM regarding this ship and its apparently troubled development.

    "Abruzzi has never had problems with incremental damage. Because of her armour layout, she brawls very well against enemy cruisers -- especially British light cruisers. Her agility and handling also facilitate this. It wasn't damage being done by cruisers or destroyers (or the occasional aircraft strike) that made Abruzzi such an awful experience. It's battleships.


    Abruzzi prints Devastating Strike medals. Think of all of the jokes you've ever heard regarding Pensacola and Omaha-class cruisers being easy to citadel. Abruzzi is worse. Her Repair Party simply guarantees that when a battleship does eventually look her way, she will be at near full health when they spray her innards across a quarter mile of open ocean in a horrendous one-shot kablooie. Repair Party was implemented to help ensure that Abruzzi would have more time in game to make up for her bad (nay, terrible) firepower. It hasn't done that. The timer still stops anytime a battleship takes a vague interest in her candy-cane striped butt."

    Yes, Abruzzi is like the French CLs, but a Tier higher, and crappier shells. Her armour scheme lets you brawl gun cruisers or gunbots, but if a BB aims it guns at you, you're toast. The spaced armour isn't effective against any shells bigger than 6 inch.

    @Keyan_TTK I haven't followed development of this ship at all, so seeing the comment by LWM was amusing to me. The only thing I knew about it prior was that a number of players were looking forward to her.
