Riga is the brand new Soviet Tier IX cruiser released in early access in update 0.9.4 and fully researchable from 0.9.5. Riga is one of the early heavy cruiser design variants of Project 82. She was equipped with 220 mm guns that gave the Soviet ship superiority over her foreign heavy cruiser counterparts, which were armed with 203 mm artillery.
Riga boasts the best AP shell penetration and flight time among all Tier 9 techtree cruisers combined with very high shell velocity and flat shell arcs
Riga has some very tough armor profile for a cruiser, with thick deck and upper belt armor and “icebreaker” bow. Riga also boasts the largest hitpoint pool of all Tier 9 techtree cruisers. One might call it a gimmick but Riga also gains improved dispersion at mid to short range and having access to the surveillance radar consumable makes Riga quite the threat to enemy destroyers and stealthier cruisers. Riga has good concealment with all available improvements for her size and tier but does have some weaknesses including disappointing HE damage output and fire chance.
Relatively slow main battery reload speed for a cruiser and suffers from quite poor accuracy at long range. riga, riga wows, wows riga, riga world of warships, riga cruiser, world of warships new russian cruisers, wows, world of warships, riga ship, new russian cruisers, riga review, riga guide, riga build, riga captain skills, russian cruiser guide, russian cruiser captain skills, russian cruisers world of warships, russian cruisers, world of warships russian cruiser guide, wows russian cruiser split, heavy russian cruiser, russian heavy cruisers wows. Riga also suffers rather slow main battery traverse speed making expert marksman an absolute must have skill. Riga also has rather a large turn radius and slow rudder shift time and it’s important to realise that the vulnerable citadel rises above the waterline so angling correctly is quite important. The surveillance radar only lasts for 15 seconds which might take some players a little getting used to compared to other Russian cruisers which usually lasts a lot longer so it’s very important to land those salvos in the brief windows provided. All in all Riga feels like a very strong cruiser and possibly the new tier 9 king. Only time will tell.
