Commanders, thank you for participating in “The Ring” competition last year! In “The Ring”, community contributors competed for the honor of becoming a Commander in World of Warships, with the help of you, our players.
Now we’re ready to introduce the victorious Commanders with their unique voiceovers!
Who are the new Commanders? Find out in our video!
Italian cruisers are set to join the World of Warships fleet very soon. The ships of the Italian branch have a number of advantages that can surprise your rivals and help you find a way out of almost any situation. We’ll tell you about gameplay features of each of these steel giants. How to play?
Today, we’re focusing on a special Premium Tier X ship from the branch of British battleships—Thunderer. The project of the Royal Navy battleship with increased firepower was designed taking into account British shipbuilding experience of the World War II period. The ship is armed with 457 mm main battery guns that were developed in the early 1920s and were the most powerful British naval artillery systems.
Today we are starting the Supertest for the Object 752, a Tier IX Soviet heavy.
oscillating turret and a gun with an autoloader (a quite uncommon
combination for a Soviet) are the signature features of this vehicle.
The autoloader is a fast one: three shells, 2.75 seconds between shots,
and 21.8 seconds for a complete reload. As for the other stats, the gun
dispersion is 0.4 m per 100 m, and the aiming time amounts to 3 seconds.
The basic AP round can penetrate 256 mm of armor, and the special APCR
can pierce 318 mm. The gun’s one-time damage is 440 points, and the
vehicle’s view range is 380 m.
protection of the Object 752 is adequate for a heavy: up to 330 mm of
armor at the front of the turret and up to 180 mm at the front of the
hull. Yet keep in mind that there’s a weakly armored oscillating part
behind the turret’s frontal plate, so you better engage your enemies at
mid-range. Keeping the distance between your opponents and yourself is
not a problem with a power-to-weight ratio of 17.4 hp per tonne and a
top speed of 50 km/h. A gun depression of -8 degrees lets you use
terrain folds to your advantage.
The Object 752 combines the aggressiveness of the Soviets with the cautiousness of the French. The dynamics allows it to take advantageous positions first, and its firepower lets it dish out lots of damage over a short period of time. Still the tank’s operator should think beforehand of a place to wait out the reload time (while covering the weakly armored parts). The key to efficient play on this tank is reacting quickly to changes in the tactical environment, while making use of the vehicle’s strong sides.
