The Imperial Russian Navy is better in that its ships were real, saw actual combat and have alot of history dating back to Peter the Great. The Soviet Navy is better in drawing ships on paper, nothing more.

Yeah Stalin was far more interested in Land based combat capabilitie which made sense for the the Soviet Union. Only coastal defense ships were deeemed to be needed so they did not really have a war fleet until the Cold War.

We will have to see what the Russian BB line brings. A 3x3 457mm 1000+m/s muzzle velocity 1000mm+ penetration short fuse improved autobounce railgun bunker with 2000 meter turning radius?

For most of the tiers it's going to be of Imperial Russian ships in origin that will make up the Russian BB Line.  So much so, that I believe that only Tier IX-X will be original Soviet ships.  I can see old Imperial-era stuff getting refits.  It's going to be strange.

Gangut-class, commissioned 1914-1915.

Imperatritsa Mariya-class commissioned at the same time.

Imperator Nikolai I has origins from this same time frame.

 

There are no new Russian Battleship designs between these ships and the Sovetsky Soyuz-class of the late 1930s.  WG is going to milk these Imperial-era ships for Tier III-V, to include refits.  It will be interesting to see what WG makes up for Tier VI-VIII, because if you look at the Sovetsky Soyuz-class, it screams Tier IX.  Okt.Rev in Tier V is already a refitted Gangut-class.  There's going to be a lot of paper here.  Sovetsky Soyuz for Tier IX I cut a lot of slack because the Soviets were actually building them, but for Tier VI-VIII and X, it's going to be all paper or super-duper levels of paper refits.
