I found her quite fun, haven't player her in months, though. The guns are good, just make sure you plan ahead enough not to have to turn them!

Just got the Oktyabrskaya Revolutsiya, time to take her for a spin, any tips on using her?

Much the same way as you'd play the Nikolai if you have that.

Also notable the russian "well, Tsushima sucked hard"-armor layout; weak belt, fantastic resilience to HE and "small" calibers.

To be fair that was exactly what they were trying to achieve with that armor layout. Only catch is, it's a bit vulnerable to high caliber AP instead.

Congrats man.

As the fellow forumites said, the turret traverse is painful, plus it has a peculiar pattern of turret syncronization.

Good ship but if you compare it to the Gulio Ceasare, the russian is a dissapointment.

Have fun anyway

The Oktober was never my friend.

Guns are ok, but the layout is bad. Here you can clearly see how design can influence effectivness and that the raw attributes of a ship tell only half the story.

Yes, it's very interesting to see how the different navies' philosophies and doctrines apply and work (or not work) in the game.

While not forgetting the game's arcade nature for a second, of course.

I like to call it the "armour, everywhere" armour layout as compared with the USN's all or nothing. Shame they never got the chance to do a proper comparison between the two in rl (both have their merits and flaws for sure)

 

And of course, one must never forget that.

She's a t5 BB with limited charges of dmg con on low cd and great protection vs HE.

AP is usable only at close and low-mid ranges, while HE does the job at anything past that

Congrats didnt know you could get ships from super containers.

 

sorry for the off topic question but how many super containers can you actually get? Or is it just unlimited with a really low chance?

Very low probability to get ships, low probability to get SC at all.

 

Having said that Ive had a couple since they were released. Mostly it's flags, freexp or something I get in them.

It's a nice ship.

 

The AP is quite reliable, and the HE has a pretty decent fire chance so it's a fallback option against strong T7 BB's. I find the ship uptiers quite comfortably.

 

The AA is strong, and against Tier 4-5 CV's you can rush them and there's little they can do. The AA is kind of hilarious with something like 7 different types of mount. The ship looks like an AA gun salesman's show piece.

 

If you have a high-skill Russian DD captain, it's really enjoyable to run on one of those. The CE, SI and AFT you'll probably run fit perfectly. SI is really important because of limited repair parties. DE which you'll likely have will help though is overkill.
