that thing is insane,much more durable in bow fighting than ANY tier8 ship.

her accuracy at mid and close range is great.

she punch very hard.

her AA is good.

HE spamming won't work well on her.

she is one of the tankiest ships i ever sailed,pretty nice ship.

Crux, it's funny because someone earlier today tried to say that it was garbage.  Somehow, I'm kind of doubting that any Russian ship would truly be garbage (*cough* Krispy Kreme *cough*).

I keep seeing people say that they are HE resistant - i've been seeing them more frequently and they seem to burn quite nicely.  Light them up - wait for repair, light them up again seems to be the main strategy for showing them the door early.

Rocky 4 was such a good movie, I think probably the best in the series.

Vlad is a good boat. Wish it had better range. A bow tanker but she burns. If I see two cruisers ahead I wait for help. HE is hard on Vlad. I have experienced some wonky dispersion but I blame me not RNG. Well maybe sometimes it’s RNG

That would be me.

I rank her as a slightly worse Massachusetts at bow tanking, and drastically worse at every thing else.

Her main deck is 40mm with some of the back parts being 50mm, and standard heavy cruisers and IFHE light cruisers can only pen 32mm.  This does not allow them to not be lit on fire, but rather protect against HE penetration damage.  

In any case, her AA i do not feel is very good at all.  Its mediocre at best, and against any T8 CV that's determined you most definitely won't be a difficult target.

But yes, I do indeed like Vlad.  Protecting your citadel and positioning against DD torps allows for the ship to truly shine, I'm excited to get my hands on Kreml.

IDK about the AA. I heavily molested one with Lexington today and didn't lose that many bombers to it.

She's ok.   I crushed a bow camping Vlad and a Cleveland at close range simultaneously with my Massachusetts.  You just gotta take the fight to them, and not fight on their terms.

Yeah, the Vlad ain't no brawler.  And its AA I would call par for a Tier VIII  BB.

 

Kite's well though.   And RNG Jesus help the cruiser that gives it a broadside.

I’m looking forward to their release. I’m hoping they don’t power creep. Would like to see what flavor they bring to the game though.
