Apart from their different tiers, premium vs. tech tree status and the fact that the Giulio has HE and the Doria has SAP, is there actually any difference between them?

Because if there isn't, I can easily understand how giving a Doria (which I have unlocked and played) the ability to light main armament fires would make her an obscene terror if set at Tier 5 against Tier 4 ships.

It makes me hope they dust off the Giunio Bruto and make her the Novorossiysk at T6.

I would argue that all of these are very important differences. :Smile-_tongue:

But seriously, remember that WG buffed GC’s plating and decided that the result was balanced at tier VI.

I was surprised that the tier V tech tree ship wasn’t Leonardo da Vinci. I expected the rebuilt Conte de Cavour to be released as a tier VI premium along with the new line - a tweaked version of Giunio Bruto with SAP.

Blapping cruisers out of existence with SAP dev strikes never gets old.

Extremity plating aside, Giulio has a bit better concealment, shorter range than Doria, better sigma, worse secondaries, worse AA, worse rudder shift due to Doria being able to fit the Upgrade.

Still, functionaly just by the HE I would rather pick Giulio. The whole story behind Giunio Bruto and in general that effort to nerf Giulio was a pretty bad community driven outcry in hindsight. Possibly affected the future quite a bit for the worse; also WG was able to turn it into a win by playing on the artificial scarcity and presence in specific lootboxes.

They can face each other at Tier 5 through 7 matchmaking, so the tier and premium differences are less important from that perspective.
