    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.
