Smolensk — Soviet promo premium Tier X cruiser.
Developed after World War II, a project of a small light cruiser (MLK 16 x 130) equipped with sixteen dual-purpose guns in four turret mounts intended to counter enemy light ships.
Smolensk became available with patch 0.8.7, released August 21st, 2019. She was removed from the Armory with patch 0.9.3, and is not currently available.
High rate of fire and shell volume, exceptional DPM.
Excellent ballistics, high muzzle velocity and flat shell arcs.
Very quick turret traverse speed.
Equipped with torpedoes.
Access to the Smoke Generator (While active, generates a smoke screen that blocks line-of-sight for both enemies and teammates.) consumable
Excellent AA suite that can be further improved with the Defensive AA Fire (While active, the damage per second of large caliber anti-aircraft guns is increased.) consumable.
Smallest health pool of all Tier 10 cruisers.
Turn radius and rudder shift time are rather bad for such a small ship.
Very poor stock gun range means skill points or upgrades must be used to improve it.
Lightweight shells tend to lose a lot of speed at long range.
The Smoke Generator (While active, generates a smoke screen that blocks line-of-sight for both enemies and teammates.) consumable only has two charges stock.
