Abruzzi is a decent ship i think, got around 15 battles in her now and most battles i survived and did around 60K damage minimum, 1 time got 160K. (got 16 skillpoint commander on her, IFHE/CE are almost mandatory for her)
Most important is that you know how to angle and use the 30 mm armor belt at waterlevel and you can bounce a lott, very important is to never show broadside to something, cus you will get citadelled to pieces.
Her turret angles are better for kiting away, cause of the stupid lifeboats at the rear turret which block it.
If you like the look of it and think you can handle i'd say it's worth the price.
Still think it could use a buff to the shells :P
