The Stalingrad-class was Project 82, a battlecruiser design intended to destroy enemy cruisers and defend against potential shore bombardments of Russia. The design was faster than any ship with similar armament, while being more heavily armed than any ship with similar speed. It is most comparable with the Scharnhorst-class in armament, but closer to heavy cruisers in armor and having destroyer-like speed.
Here are the three versions of Stalingrad I created based, stretching the stats based on the tier. Tier VIII seems like the most accurate version, but since Scharnhorst, a cruiser killer with similar armament to Stalingrad, exists at Tier VII; I was willing to make a Tier VII version with toned down stats. In addition, after looking at the amazing rate of fire (according to design) and excellent ballistics of the guns as well as the superb top speed, I was willing to make a Tier IX version too, although that is a pretty big stretch, likely adding some more AA guns so it isn’t the #1 target of carriers. Likely she is going to be Tier VII or VIII, I doubt she could fit Tier IX.
A note about the armament caliber, Wikipedia says 61 caliber, but NavWeaps says 62, and I am willing to trust NavWeaps more so I went with 62.
Oh, one more thing. I found weapon data very confusing as the shell weights (except the long-range shell) were all the same, and all propellant charges were the same weight, but velocities vary (700 m/s HE vs. 950 m/s AP). For balance’s sake (and Stalinium rounds ), I kept them at the AP’s velocity because WG seems to use that for all Russian velocities.
All secondary gun and AA gun stats were taken from other Russian ships.
Special Thanks to TenguBlade for helping me with stat balancing, cause I don't know the definition of that (I originally set the Tier VII HP as 66100, oops).
Tier VII Stalingrad:
Tier VIII Stalingrad:
Tier IX Stalingrad:
There is one special thing that I planned about these ships. Remember the “long-range shell” I mentioned earlier? Well, of course that won’t be the normal ammo, but I thought about giving them the option of having a consumable that gives that shell for the same duration as the spotter plane No I am not lying about the 1,300 m/s velocity. The commas are to indicate how the consumable changes per tier. Ex. VII, VIII, IX
Long-Range Shell Consumable
