Supertest: Soviet Tier VIII Aircraft Carrier Pobeda

6 min read

Historical background

The Pobeda is based on a conversion of the Project 69 cruiser (Kronshtadt). At the end of World War II, the Soviet Navy found itself with the hull of the battlecruiser Kronshtadt unfinished. A proposal was made to convert the ship into an aircraft carrier while basing it on the plans of the German carrier Graf Zeppelin that the USSR acquired.

In the end, the project was abandoned and the uncompleted hull was scrapped.

In Word of Warships Pobeda introduces JATO (Jet-Assisted Take-Off) rockets among Soviet carriers. Just like on Tone and Ise, these rockets will give the planes extra speed for a short while after take-off.

For the classic reminder, this is a ship in testing, anything can change so don’t look at her like she would already be released.

Personal Opinion

The Pobeda definitely keeps the downside of having planes with low speed (except for the Attack aircraft) and HP pool but at least, her skip bombs now have 3 skips which will mitigate a fairly big part of the damage on them.
The torpedoes, with the last buff, got a lot more interesting with the shorter arming distance and higher torpedo speed.

She will definitely suffer against higher-tier ships but overall, the damage output seems promising.

Easter Egg

Inside the commanding bridge of the Podeda, there is a map of the Kandalaksha Gulf in the White Sea. I have no idea of why buuuut… yeah, it’s there.

  1. Are you sure about the location shown of the map? Kandalaksha Gulf looks completely different to me on Google maps … maybe I am wrong here …

    1. I see, I was wrong, thx for posting a map in your T10 report.
