ST: New 🇮🇹 Italian Cruisers With Updated Ship Names and Destroyer WIP Stats and 360 Video World of Warships


UPDATED: July 25 2019

Added: New Ship Names and Stats

ST: Italian Cruisers and Destroyer Stats


After additional discussion regarding our name choices for Tier VIII-X Italian cruisers, we decided to choose a different set of names.

Your main concern after our previous clarification was that Verona, Torino and Milano had no naval theme, and we address it thus:

- Verona will be renamed to Amalfi. Amalfi is an historical port town on the West coast of Italy, and there was an armored cruiser with such name in the beginning of 20th century.
- Torino will be renamed to Brindisi. It is an historical port town on the East coast of Italy, and this name also belonged to a 1920-30 light cruiser.
- Milano will be renamed to Venezia. Apart from the obvious maritime theme, it was also a 1920-30 light cruiser.

The names Pisa, Napoli and Palermo will be reserved for possible future ships. We also reserve the right to use Verona, Torino, Milano and any other names in the future, should we run out of reasonably significant maritime options.

"NEW 🇮🇹 ITALIAN SHIPS STATS"
Researchable Italian tier I-X cruisers, as well as Italian Premium tier V cruiser Genova and Italian tier X destroyer Paolo Emilio will be added to the game in the upcoming super test session.

Italian cruisers have special consumable “Fuel Smokes”, unique ammunition — semi-armor piercing shells, good maneuverability and a high salvo weight with long reload time.

Semi-armor piercing shells have the features of two types of shells at once:
  • Semi-armor piercing shells can ricochet, but the angles of the ricochet are more comfortable than those of armor piercing shells (60–85°);
  • For semi-armor piercing shells, the 14.3-caliber rule will apply;
  • If the ricochet does not happen, the mechanics of semi-armor piercing shells is similar to high explosive ones;
  • Semi-armor piercing shells don’t have over penetrations;
  • Can’t cause a fire;
  • Damage and penetration is better than high explosive shells;
  • Semi-armor piercing shells deal only 10% of their damage to destroyers.

Semi-armor piercing shells are designed to deal stable high damage when armor piercing shells are not effective.

Fuel smokes are almost similar to a usual smoke generator, but a ship equipped with fuel smokes is able to be concealed at full speed. Therefore, Italian cruisers will be able to hide from enemy ships or aircraft, without sacrificing speed and the ability to maneuver. Fuel smokes last from 25 to 40 seconds and disperse in 10 seconds.

Italian cruisers are equipped with a small number of torpedoes with not the highest damage and speed, but with good range, low visibility and short reload time.

We also want to comment on the situation with the names of Italian cruisers. It is indeed true that Italian heavy cruisers of 1920–1930 were named after the cities conquered in WWI. However, from what we see, Italians specifically chose the cities that had significant value — either strategic or ideologic. Most of such symbolic names were all used up for historic ships already — like Trento, Fiume, Zara, Pola, Gorizia and Bolzano. Since no further heavy cruisers were actually built after Bolzano, it’s difficult to state with certainty what names they would have received.

We did consider a couple of options for new ship names, and we decided to go on with the “signature” Italian cities for their significance and strong association with Italy, even if they do not follow the tradition above. Hence, we have Milano, Torino, Verona and Genova. We also reserved Venezia for future possible ships.

It’s worth mentioning that Regia Marina did use such Italian city names before — if we look at armored cruisers of the 1910s and light cruisers of the 1920s — Pisa, Taranto, Bari, etc. So, this naming concept is not entirely made up or erroneous, it was used already.
