ST 0.9.10, Italian Battleships

Researchable Italian battleships will be added to the game in the upcoming supertest session.

 

Please note that all information in the development blog is preliminary and subject to change during testing. Any showcased features may or may not end up on the main server. The final information will be published on our game's website.

The ships of the new branch are most effective in combat at medium range. The main features of the Italian battleships:

  • Like the Italian cruisers, instead of HE shells, the new ships are armed with SAP shells. They inflict high damage on weakly and moderately protected targets and ship parts, but do not cause fires.
  • The "Exhaust smoke generator" is among the consumables of the Italian battleships, which will allow you to hide from the enemy without sacrificing speed.
  • A large number of guns with a relatively short firing range and not very good accuracy.
  • Secondary battery with good accuracy, but short range
  • Decent concealment and average maneuverability, quickly turning turrets and rather good armor.
