  So, I took Sinop out just now to knock the snowflake off.  First ever game. modules equipped but no upgrades and a 0 point captain.

126,917 damage, a ROFL stomp of a kirov from halfway across the map with an off hand salvo; 5 citadels, and EVERY salvo landed for massive damage.   I was being focused by 3 BB's, and emerged relatively unscathed.  They did not.

  This thing has it all:  Rail guns,  excellent pen,  ridiculous secondaries, and it's tanky.   Decent AA, too.    It's functionally immune to direct damage from med caliber HE spam, has very little superstructure, etc.   I think this one may be a tad overtuned...   Heck, I even double citted a KGV from 12+km.

  The only downsides are that it eats citadels if you show side (like every other ship), and has glacially slow turret traverse.

I like the Sinop a LOT, but I had to turn away from it for the recent Ranked Sprint (frikking epicenter). Its guns hit really hard, but the turret traverse was so slow that I couldn't maneuver around with it and keep guns close to target in the closer confines of ranked maps. I was, admittedly, new to the Sinop then.

Ironically, I analyzed things and determined the KGV was what I needed in response to the Sinop - a fast reload with a high fire chance and fast turret traverse, to tax the limited DCP and repair party of the Sea of Sinopses I was seeing. And it worked - undefeated in the KGV to rank out.

 

But - out in the wide open of Random maps, where you can pick your spots and angles better, the Sinop is like Nikolai Valuev ( the 7-foot tall Russian heavy weight champ boxer) out there.
