Italian Destroyers: Early Access

Italian Destroyers: Early Access

Italian Tier II–X destroyers are arriving in Early Access in World of Warships.

Read on to learn everything you need to know about the features of the new ships, Early Access, and the new game event—Clash of Courage.

Features of the new ships

II Curtatone, III Nazario Sauro, and IV Turbine. The primary armament of the new ships placed at Tiers II to IV is their torpedoes. In terms of gameplay, these ships are similar to “conventional” destroyers. All of them carry SAP and HE shells.

At Tiers II to IV, ship consumables don’t last long and are mostly used for illustrative purposes to introduce players to their unusual characteristics. Exhaust Smoke Generator will hide a ship even if it’s running at full speed, and the Emergency Engine Power consumable provides a bigger boost to speed compared to the standard Engine Boost, but for a shorter period of time.

V Maestrale, VI Aviere, and VII Luca Tarigo. At Tiers V to VII, main battery guns get better but the ships continue to rely on torpedo tubes as their primary armament. Unlike their counterparts of other nations, there is only a slight increase in the firing range of their main batteries.

The characteristics of their consumables, however, improve from tier to tier, helping shape a full-fledged style of combat. With Emergency Engine Power, SAP shells, and Exhaust Smoke Generator, Italian destroyers can close in on an enemy ship for an aggressive attack at short range.

VIII Vittorio Cuniberti, IX Adriatico, and X Attilio Regolo. At Tiers VIII to X, combat strategy may be based on an intermittent approach. Commanders will need to conduct a thorough analysis of the situation and choose between (or combine) the following two strategies:
Firing long-range quick-reload torpedoes in a measured way.
Relying on a combination of main guns, torpedoes, and consumables for a lightning-fast strike.The most similar pre-existing ship suited for this type of aggressive combat strategy is IX Paolo Emilio. At the same time, researchable Italian destroyers will also rely on their main guns in knife-distance duels, since torpedoes alone may not be enough to finish the job. Keep in mind that at Tiers VIII—X, the standard firing range does not exceed 10 km. Upgrades to extend the firing range are not accessible.
