ST: 0.9.11 Nerfs to Italian Test Ships Lepanto, Marco Polo and Cristoforo Colombo

WG adjusted the armor of Lepanto, Marco Polo and Cristoforo Colombo based on testing results.
I will make the changes to the ship pages on this blog soon.


Marco Polo Tier IX Italian Battleship 1936 
  • Main armor belt armor thickness reduced from 350 to 320 mm;
  • Deck slopes armor thickness reduced from 35 to 25 mm;
  • Citadel armoured deck slopes armor thickness reduced from 35 to 25 mm;
  • Citadel torpedo bulkhead armor thickness reduced from 60 to 50 mm.
  • Internal 40 mm casemate bulkhead armor was removed.

Cristoforo Colombo Tier X Italian Battleship 1945 
  • Main armor belt armor thickness reduced from 400 to 375 mm;
  • Deck slopes armor thickness reduced from 40 to 25 mm;
  • Citadel armoured deck slopes armor thickness reduced from 40 to 25 mm;
  • Citadel torpedo bulkhead armor thickness reduced from 70 to 50 mm.

Lepanto Tier IX Italian Battleship 1943 
  • Main armor belt armor thickness reduced from 380 to 350 mm;
  • Deck slopes armor thickness reduced from 35 to 25 mm;
  • Citadel armoured deck slopes armor thickness reduced from 35 to 25 mm;
  • Citadel torpedo bulkhead armor thickness reduced from 60 to 50 mm.
  • Internal 40 mm casemate bulkhead armor was removed.

With their current armor, hitting the citadel of Marco Polo, Lepanto and Cristoforo Colombo is very difficult. We want this remain the feature of mainly German and some French ships. It's also important for us that enemy battleships have the ability to deal heavy damage to the majority of ships of the same type, in case they make a mistake and turn broadside. Thus, we made the citadel protection of these Italians approximately on the same level as of Montana and Yamato. 

WG will keep an eye on how the changes will affect the efficiency of these battleships and will recalculate the HP and change the draught of these ships in future test iterations if deemed necessary. 


IMPORTANT! Because these Ships are WIP, the information in this Article is tentative and reflects the state of game development at the time of its publication. Changes and new features may be removed entirely or implemented differently by the time the update goes live. Screenshots, specific values of certain characteristics, and details of in-game mechanics will not necessarily be relevant after these Ships are released.
