World of Warships Supertest: Soviet Superbattleship Admiral Ushakov

4 min read

Historical background

Admiral Ushakov is POSSIBLY based on one of the variants of the Project 24 of battleship from the Soviet Union. The same project from which emerged Kremlin that we all know… and love… I guess. More precisely, it could be one of the fourteen variants from after 1948, when work on Project 24 was transferred from TsKB-17 to TsKB-L. Among these variants, some had a displacement reaching 100 000 tons for a speed of 28 to 29 knots.

Without more detailed information, it is however hard to confirm or deny that possible origing.

In any case, I have to thank Kremlin_Lover (Gee I wonder why he called himself like that) for sharing his knowledge on the subject.

Personal Opinion

If you thought that Kremlin wasn’t tanky enough, well hopefully Ushakov will fit the bill. The ship is the very definition of a Behemoth of steel with incredible armor protection may it be against AP or HE shells.

While she doesn’t get any sort of raw increase to her firepower compared to Kremlin, she at least gets a Combat Instruction that gives her better dispersion and more range for one salvo (maybe two if you are at low HP with Adrenaline Rush kicking in).

As a side note, her anti-air is also quite scary with AA mounts.

In any case, as of right now, Ushakov definitely sounds like a Kremlin on steroids. However, her gigantic size might be a non-neglectable downside. We will see how it goes.
