September 22, 2015 —Wargaming today announced that the Soviet Tech Tree will be joining the armada beginning October 19. Setting sail to cause some destruction will be a full destroyer line, including the legendary Izyaslav, Gnevny and Tashkent, the lead destroyer of Project 20 I whose cobalt blue color earned her the nickname “blue cruiser”.
Soviet destroyers bring unique features and strengths to the fight. The hard-hitting cannons deliver great accuracy making hitting even the fastest targets at long distance a breeze. Coupled with extremely high speed, strong anti-aircraft armaments, and rapid turret rotation at higher Tiers, these new Soviet vessels are capable of delivering devastating attack runs.
“We’re looking forward to letting players command this line of Soviet destroyers,” said Daniil Volkov, World of Warships Development Director. “Working towards new and interesting content to give players different ways to battle is a priority for the team and these upcoming additions will open up some distinct vessels for commanders to discover and leverage in combat.”
