World of Warships Supertest: Italian Cruiser Duca degli Abruzzi – Tier VII

The Duca degli Abruzzi-class cruisers were the final version of the Condottieri class and were larger and better protected than their predecessors. The armament was also increased by two extra 152 mm guns, triple turrets replaced twins in the “A” and “Y” positions. The machinery was also revised which led to these ships having a slightly slower maximum speed than their predecessors.

Duca degli Abruzzi

Introduced as a Tier VII Premium Cruiser, Duca degli Abruzzi took what worked with Duca d’Aosta and improved on it – so get ready for more guns, more hitpoints and more. All stats are listed without crew and upgrade modifiers, and are subject to change before the final release.

  1. She looks like a mini-Cesare, but I thought this would be the tech-tree tier 6 one, with Zara on tier 7. Looks like they will go with the sisters of these ones at tier 6-7 and Zara at tier 8

  2. Love my D’aosta to bits! This one makes me even more exited – where can i throw my money to get one?!!! They should give AP same 1k velocity as on Duca. IFHE + that velocity, better camo and same 12km torps with front arcs :3
