World of Warships - Duca Degli Abruzzi - Close Quarters - Ideal Build by Flamu


Close Quarters: Duca Degli Abruzzi.
Close Quarters is a brand-new series in which we go beyond the stats and strategies of our favourite vessels in World of Warships. Join us as we take an in-depth route to familiarise ourselves with the rich stories of these real-life war machines to better understand their historical significance.

In the previous instalment of the series, we recounted the events during the Russo-Japanese War that lead the Russian Cruiser Varyag to acquire a legendary status in the eyes of many.

In this episode, we will be featuring an Italian ship which will shortly be dropping anchor in a port near you:
  VII Duca Degli Abruzzi.

Duca Degli Abruzzi.
In the time immediately prior to the Second World War, Italy had a considerable war fleet, the bulk of which was made up of cruisers, with 19 of them in active service at the time. The Duca Degli Abruzzi being one of them, could be considered the big sister to the Duca d’Aosta: both are agile, light cruisers and have a very similar appearance, although the Duca Degli Abruzzi has an overall larger size and significantly more powerful armament than her little sister.

Gameplay Tips:

  • Abruzzi's main armaments faithfully reflect her real-life counterpart in terms of both good range and the destructiveness coming from the ten 152 mm guns, which are mounted on three-gun and two-gun turrets.
  • This range should be taken advantage as often as possible due to her armour not being the most resistant in close-up brawl situations.
  • With six tubes, your torpedo armament presents a powerful alternative to your artillery, especially bearing in mind the excellent firing arcs. At 12 km, she has the longest torpedo range of any cruiser of her tier.
  • Consumables play an important role for Abruzzi captains, allowing you to excel in a support role with Defensive Fire and Hydroacoustic Search, while access to a Spotter Aircraft and Repair Party can help you specialise in long-range duelling.
