WG: Don't worry, you won't reliably land shells at that distance. You really don't need more range.

Vladivostok's is 16.3km with a 33 second reload, so you're in good company.

Honestly upgrade the range finder first. You will quickly see how evil that ship is one you out deadeye on it.

She lands citadels pretty easy, ignore the SAP.

At least until 0.10.4 drops and Deadeye gets pulled forever.

Vladivostok also has 16.3km base and 18km upgraded. She also doesn't have a spotter unlike the Veneto. If we include sansonetti, Veneto can hypothetically trash Vladivostok's range.

I'd say there are similarities between the two with things such as range, armour layouts, and AP penetration (Veneto has slightly better AP pen up to 15km, but they're pretty much the same for all intensive purposes). The playstyle of both is somewhat similar, but Vladivostok has better accuracy mid/close range, and Veneto has SAP along with Roma railgun-like shells. Veneto also has a fuel smoke which can help with pushing and/or disengaging. Just don't fire you're guns while in that smoke because smoke firing penalty is a very real thing.

not really. We can even see on the fitting tool that it has a 31.5 degree rearward firing angle on it's X turret (the back turret). that's very good, in fact it beats out a lot of it's contemporaries at same tier, including Vladivostok's 35 degrees and Monarch's laughable 37 degrees.

If you're talking about the AB turret's rearward firing arcs, then yeah they aren't that great at only 140 degrees, but a lot of BBs at this tier aren't the best in kiting positions.

I don't blame you. I would rather play any other T6 BB than Andrea, and almost any other T7 BB (Gneisenau seems to pretty bad these days, hadn't taken it out for some time) than Frankie.

Maybe if I ever have all the other T10 BBs, I'll give it a go.

Why bother learning Deadeye when it's gone next month anyways?

The 381mm AP shells from Italian BBs have always been strong.  I respect the French 380mm AP for it's strong penetration power despite it "only" coming from a 15" gun.  The ITA 381mm AP has even more Pen.  Great for busting heavy armor belts, but bad for skinny Cruisers and such.

Here's an Artillery Chart with several 15" armed BBs in Tier VIII (Roma, Richelieu, Bismarck) and a few 16" ones (North Carolina, Amagi)

Roma shares the same AP performance as the other High Tier ITA 381mm armed BBs.

NC has the same shells as the South Dakota-class BBs.

As you can see, the ITA 381mm AP has strong Penetration power, better even than the FR 380s and IJN / USN 16" AP in this tier.

 

But bad gunnery is the achilles heel of these new BBs.

because by the time it's gone you should have the tier X

and with sixteen barrels deadeye or no you'll hit something.
