Hi guys, What is the range of Slava,22.7 or 24.7KM? I’m confused by different sources. 

 

PS: How is the power compared to LM Yamato ?

 

Thanks

Slava is a monster. 24,7 km. It is supposed to be weak at close ranges but yeah...

That is like the Kremlin on steroids...

This whole game is now full of OP magical russian ships "that would have been the best if they were built".

Yuzorah described this ship perfectly.

Thanks mate, but in the armory-Slava description, it says clearly 22.7 KM, a typo?

I have Slava in port and range is clearly 24km. I am sure. I remember I even hit citadel on 24 km. :Smile_teethhappy:

 

I cant visit armory now to check. But I think there is mistake.

It is a known bug in the armory

Having more range than Kremlin makes it "Kremlin on steroids"?

 

You do realize that it does not have the incredible tankiness (regarding armor and DCP) and the insane close range accuracy of Kremlin?

I really like Slava and I think it can tank much more damage than people realize (at mid to long range), but it will never be able to roll over a flank like the Kremlin can. 

 

Lategame Slava can also brawl, no question about it, but it has to pick its fights very carefully.

It has absurd range, absurd shell travel time, air drag, penetration, dispersion. What should I call it? Sure, it is less industractable than Kremlin but wouldn't call it weak armor.

 

I feel it is stronger than Kremlin. Sure, different playstyle but still feel it is stronger.

I am human I can be wrong, it is just my feeling.

 

A Slava-Petro combo just obliterated a whole side yesterday.

It has by far the weakest armor of all TX BBs, as the nose is 25mm and the deck is 32mm.

 

I do agree that it can be really resistant to AP when properly angled at mid-range (kind of like the old Moskva), as people just can't reliably hit that nose of yours. But the armor fades when getting too close with that nose, and it cannot deal with any kind of HE spam.

 

It is strong and it has ridiculous railguns yeah, but it will never be best suited to push a flank.

I guess you have seen other BBs do the same to potato team mates though?

I am not saying you are wrong and I absolutely understand your point and if this was based on math you would definitely change my mind.

 

But it is a feeling and it takes time to change thanks to the fact that anytime I met a Slava on the enemy team we lost and whenever I had it on my team we won. Even if it seemed as a lost cause. ( I am also aware that this has lost a lot of its original potential in the balancing of the last 6 months.)

Thank you guys! 

PS: everytime I meet à Slava in the red team with my Yamato, we won:) So I am wondering which one is better in terms of the all-around combination (tankiness plus snipering )

It's really just about the player.
