First look at the upcoming T10 Italian cruiser. I find her fun and fairly strong.
She’s still a WIP and subject to change though! This is a ship provided to me for testing by WG.

World of Warships footage of the T10 Italian cruiser Venezia.


  1. Dude I’m Trying to play Minecraft and you came along lol

  2. Those torps are drifting mines like the ones the Khaba has … you can get enormous range out of them if you kite away. They will at the very least make the enemy manouver and well open sides you can then punish heavily with 15 SAP shells. I get the feeling she will be a bit like Zao, forget you got AP for about 90% of the time.

    • I guess that’s true.

    • @Aerroon People who forget that Zao has AP can’t play her correctly. Zao has the best AP penetration of all 203mm guns, higher alpha than Des Moines, and is literally the most accurate of all T10 CAs, making her an excellent broadside cruiser hunter. In fact, thanks to Zao’s AP alpha she has almost as high total AP salvo alpha as Venezia despite fewer guns.

  3. Interesting creeping smoke I guess.

  4. Basically Minotaur and Zao got funky in bed and this is the end result

    I think tha the Venecia is a very good ship but the thing that i don’t are the SAP. And the torpedous aren’t bad.And finally the smoke is incredible.

  6. I still think HE is better.

  7. SAP has me conflicted it seems good, but there were several time where just plain AP wold have sufficed. I think that Expert Loader is going to be a viable option on these kinds of ships.

    • I don’t know about Expert Loader. You need to have all of your guns loaded, which just doesn’t happen too often. But AP is pretty good too yeah.

  8. the sacred potato

    1:13 autobahn’s angle ^^

    Giuseppe? No no, porco dio! No, my friend!

    • I love how you know our colloquial way to dissipate anger!
      Just a tip: if you put a double “d” (porcoDDIO), that gets more powerful and intimidating… But you are in the right road, my padawan!

      I lived with an Italian, a Greek and a Turk for a year when I was in university. The ‘language’ lessons were as amazing as the cooking!

  10. 3:03 Aerroon is becoming Jingles

  11. those fwd firing angles look pretty damn nice.

  12. Earlier this evening, full broadside Venezia at 6km of me (in hindy showing bow only on North map – I was in F5, the Venezia popped up in F6 from east to south), I got the time to fire 3 salvos of both frontal turrets: no citadel, and 2/3 shattered, the rest was penetrating but dissapointing dmg dealt for the powerful ap of hindy, and 3 times mostly !

    It’s not the first time I have some doubts about WiP ships…
    During that period, I tend to think they have some kind of buffs or unofficial protections, bcoz when they are realeased later (weeks), they become much less stronger in practice than they looked like with CCs testing them in WiP.
    Such as for dmg or efficiency of armours or others.
    And I get that feeling with couple of ships (Stalingrad, Venezia here, Georgia, etc).

    Don’t be too much amazed by WiP potential, bcoz later u often get quite disappointed.

    But still nice ship ofc, and a GG. ?

    • aerroon forgot to mention in the video, the broadside of Venezia is actually spaced-armor despite being high above the waterline, much like Henri IV but it actually have even more armor.

  13. I would ignore the CV debacle and the (eventual) submarine debacle and download this game again if WG would just focus on creating some new maps. It’s just ship after ship after ship.

    • New maps would be nice. The main thing is that balancing maps is hard. Maybe if we had a game mode where we played the match and then switched sides we could get more maps, because they wouldn’t have to be as balanced.

  14. The AP is not great, not terrible

  15. I murdered one of those in my Zao. Spotted him and loaded AP. Right when he spotted me, i was broadside completing my turn. Then i launched my AP salvo and devastated him .

  16. Maybe Mogami needs a smoke screen too 😛

  17. You have to show us the Venezia with the default camo please.

    • It’s a tech tree ship, meaning that it doesn’t have a default camo (unless you mean the greyness). Or rather, it has a permacamo but I’d have to buy that for doubloons, and I wouldn’t be able to keep the camo either, because when testing’s done the camo is removed too.

    • @Aerroon Oh yeah, sorry, I meant all grey. Cheers.

  18. Honestly this looks really, fun, and is hyping me up for the Italian Battleships.

    • It is a lot of fun! I do wonder what the Italian battleships are going to be like after this. I imagine that they’re not going to have SAP though.

  19. Fancy a Bev Mate?

    A lot of people misjudge Italian torps I have a great record using them slow and deadly; )

    • They are literally mines, you just drop them and let them drift in the tide, and like a minute and a half later you’ve hit two on someone that never expected them.

      I love Italian torps for that reason.
