    Ship discussion: Roma

    Roma is not a myth!! WoWS's devblog recently unveiled her:



    ST, Italian battleship Roma, tier VIII.

    Hit points - 65400, plating - 32 mm, belt - 375 mm.
    Main battery - 3x3 381 mm. Firing range - 18.1 km. HE damage - 5100, AP damage - 12000. Reload time 30 s., 180 degree turn time - 30 s., maximum dispersion - 244 m. HE initial velocity - 805 m/s. AP initial velocity - 880 m/s. Sigma count - 1.9. Maximum speed - 30 kt. Turning circle radius - 850 m., rudder shift time - 15.6 s.
    Surface detectability - 14.5 km, air detectability - 13.3 km. Detectability after firing main guns in smoke - 13.7 km.
    Anti-torpedo defense damage reduction: 25%

    Available consumables:
    Slot 1 - Damage Control Party
    Slot 2 - Repair Party
    Slot 3 - Spotting Aircraft

    All stats are listed without crew and upgrade modifiers.
    The sigma is at 1.9, which is a tad low, but that 18.1 km firing range at T8 kinda irks me. Also, TDS at 25%?

    @Keyan_TTK Her base detection range is pretty good however. Seems like they're trying to port Giulio Casere's gameplay to T8. We'll see if it works.

    Have to admit though, I would have preferred Vittorio Veneto over Roma, at least she did something other than get blown up.


    I also can't help but be a bit peeved that Italy's getting 2 high tiers premium soon even though they have no line planned till late 2018 while France which will soon have a second line has been stuck with T6 for captain training since forever. I'm happy that the Italian fans finally get their most requested ship, but I can't help but question WG's priorities. Not like Colbert, Le Terrible or Jean Bart wouldn't sell either.

    I didn't really check all the stats, except for one: Detection range.

    This thing is a hair stealthier than the already super-stealthy Monarch, who already easily surpasses NC in stealth.

    WG continues it's tangent of Cruiser Stealth on BBs.

    NC
    Tier VII+ RN BBs
    Caesar
    Now Roma

    @M.A.Mitscher For all intent and purpose, it is another Monarch: Same gun range, 100m detection range advantage for Roma.

    I've been very ecstatic with Caesar and that says a lot considering she's a Tier V BB. I haven't had that much fun in a Tier V since before the MM changes. If Caesar is an example of Italian BB play, then I'm happy to receive the rest of them.

    I also bought GC and she is my T5 ship to go with Emile.

    And my hype for the French BBs has been doused quite a bit, I now wish for the Pasta BBs to come. Gib Dante Aligheri, Conte di Cavour, Andrea Doria, Francesco Caracciolo and Vittorio Veneto pls.

    Roma's torpedo protection got buffed in 0.6.14, as per datamined changes.
    Roma Torpedo damage reduction increased from 25% to 38.5%.
    That's quite nice for the Pugliese system.
