flag shipicon Kozma Minin: Tier IX Soviet Russian Premium Heavy Cruiser 1951

A hypothetical design for a heavy cruiser was one of the development options for Project 65. During the 1940s, the USSR was actively engaged in designing new ship types, incorporating German technologies they had acquired. Among the concepts that never materialized was a cruiser project featuring 203 mm armament, akin to the armament found on the German Admiral Hipper-class cruisers.

  • Effective Shells:
    • HE Penetration: Good penetration with high-explosive (HE) shells.
    • AP Damage: Inflicts significant armor-piercing (AP) damage.
    • Long-Range Ballistics: Comfortable performance at long range.
  • Consumables:
    • Soviet Radar: Provides additional battlefield awareness.
    • Standard Engine Boost: Enhances speed and maneuverability.
    • Repair Party: Available in a separate slot for healing.
    • Hydroacoustic Search and Defensive AA Fire share the same slot.
  • Challenges:
    • Vulnerable Citadel: Be cautious of hits to the citadel.
    • Poor Maneuverability: Requires skillful handling.
    • Concealment: Low concealment can be problematic in close combat.


  • Range Utilization: Kozma Minin excels at range combat. Utilize her speed and shell ballistics effectively to engage enemies from a distance.
  • Radar Support: Her 12km radar can be a valuable asset. Use it to support friendly destroyers by detecting and revealing enemy ships.
  • AP Punishment: Kozma Minin’s high-damage AP shells are devastating against broadside targets. Aim for vulnerable areas on enemy vessels to maximize damage output.
