I won the Krasny Krym in a contest and never played it.  Now its the only USSR ship I have for the Fredrich mission to earn 4,000,000 credits.  I have a 10 point captain.  Any suggestions how to use his skills?  Which are the best upgrades?  I studied the ship and everything needs an upgrade.  :)

Since you benefit from smaller caliber weapons you could go for something more akin to a VMF DD for the 3 and 4 point skills, namely BFT and AFT. A more conventional build would be a pretty standard PT, AR, DE, IFHE or CE. Keep in mind that with IFHE you are able to overmatch with HE any ship you encounter since the extremity limit is 25mm.

PT, AR, BFT for the first 6 points. Then AFT, and IFHE or CE.

Why not both? (IFHE, CE.)

...but then I kind of cheat and use my 19 point Groz driver... (who also has RPF.)

Play it like a Podviosky with a citadel and do just fine with it. Never have understood why players dislike The Donut so much.

Because, unlike you, most players DO NOT excel at playing unpopular ships?

I use my Minsk captain in the Donut ship and if I remember his skills are:

PR AR BFT AFT and CE. Having 16.8 km guns is pretty hilarious on a tier 5 cruiser.

Thx everyone for all your input.  I went with PT, AR, BFT and IFHE.  After many mistakes I learned to drive her like a BB.  I will go 1 on 1 with a BB but try to avoid duels with CL and DD because they have too much speed.  If I am in a cluster of friendly ships, I can use artillery to set fires.  She has a rapid rate of fire so I keep her guns busy.  Her torps are 5km range so the few times I have used them it has been because I got too close and I am about to die.  I am halfway to the 4 million credits.  She is a decent ship but I would not want to drive her in ranked battles.

In co-op is a fun ship to run. Beware of super aim of bot BB at tier 6+ on

I was graced with a SC containing a Krasny Krym on Saturday.  Not super excited, but at least I won't (likely) get it in the future from any crates I purchase.
