    What a beefcake of a ship.

    But of course its not a battleship. A proper T9 Russian Battleship should have 420mm fusion-reactor-quick-charge railguns with stalinium rounds.

    420mm only? Why should glorious Soviet ship have smaller guns than French bourgeois boat? The Party will not stand such a gaping gun gap!


    Also, FREEDOM wants USS Alaska nao, WG.

    @Keyan_TTK Because 460mm belongs to the T10 battleship. And it can't be more than that or they would renege on their stand to not have larger calibers than that.

    That is why superior technology developed and approved by party and carrying the hopes and dreams of the proletariat will make them guns worthy of the Motherland.

    I have doubts about this ship.


    The guns make me think of Scharnhorst gun compromises. Which is fine for a Tier VII but not at Tier IX.
    1.8 is BB sigma, not Cruiser.
    I have BBs with better than 242m dispersion. Donskoi has 155m with her 180mm guns and 12.5 second reload (Kron has 20 seconds).

    Dmitri Donskoi sails like a pig, Kron will be worse.
    Speed: 36kts / 33.5kts (Iowa is almost as fast)
    Rudder Shift Time: 10.6 seconds / 14.9 seconds (in contrast, Tier VIII USN BB Alabama has 15.3 seconds, Tier X Cruiser Moskva has 10.9 seconds)

    This is important to me because I don't think in terms of protection, Kron isn't going to be a Tier IX Moskva. Donskoi has a bad time staying alive via maneuvering, Kron will be worse in that while also being a large target without the protection of Moskva. Even then, outside specific profiles, Moskva can be squishy to the sides. This ship is going to eat large damage from BBs. She may have to rely on Double Steering Mod builds. Of course, doing so negates her natural concealment advantage compared to Donskoi & Moskva.

    We're going to have a Cruiser that's large, clumsier to sail than even Moskva. She's going to eat hits like it's cool. Consider also that High Tier ship selection is mostly 4-5 BBs and 4-5 DDs. You'd be lucky to have 3 Cruisers. There's a lot of Big Gun Power in High Tier. Zao, Hindenburg, will have a good time farming this thing. Kron will not have the fast attacks, accuracy to keep up with them. The BBs will love the idea of a large Cruiser that can't sail for shit. Beware Montana and Iowa / Missouri. She also will not have Cruiser firing rates and accuracy to torment the BBs.

    The WoWS Battlecruiser works for Tier VII and such, but not for the sheer power and range in High Tier. There's some people salty that we're getting Kronshtadt instead of Alaska. All I know is Alaska would suffer in this game mightily due to the compromises of the game. I've seen Scharnhorsts fail div into Tier X matches and they fail spectacularly. Kron will have a larger HP pool than Scharnhorst but she will go down just as easily. You just can't miss ships this size.

    My Montana looks forward to meeting this ship.

    You no believe fair and balanced classification of Soviet navy ship, comrade? To gulag with you!


    Also, their destroyers are citadel-less cruisers, it seems logical to me that their cruisers are light battleships.
