In the late 1930s, the soviet navy was preparing to expand massively and was in dire need of new ship designs. the project 28 design was created in 1937 to provide modern light cruisers for escort duties.
▪️ in-game shchors represents the project 28 light cruisers as part of the evolutionary step that led to the excellent chapayev-class.
▪️ no project 28 cruisers were built, since the chapayev-class was more capable and could fulfill the same role and more at a similar cost.
▪️ in essence, shchors is a lengthened version of the kirov hull design armed with twelve 152mm guns in triple turrets—the same guns as on the budyonny and chapayev.
▪️ these 152mm/57 guns and mk-5 turrets were outstanding performers, boasting both high rates of fire and muzzle velocities. the main problem with this design was the serious lack of protection, even less armor than kirov!
shchors is the tier vi russian cruiser in the tech tree! what do you think of this ship?
