History

In World of Warships, Ochakov is the embodiment of the Soviet project of a small light cruiser that was developed in 1950. To be exact, one of the six possible variants of this project—MLK-8-152, which can be deciphered as having eight 152 mm guns. Utilizing a single hull design, Soviet ships designers envisioned ships with different artillery armament, for example, with nine 152 mm guns in three turrets or six twin turret mounts with 130 mm artillery.

Key features

  • Eight 152 mm guns placed in four turrets. Her relatively small number of guns is compensated for by a short reload time for their caliber—just 6.1 seconds.
  • Two quintuple-tube 533 mm torpedo launchers with a range of 8 km.
  • Excellent concealment. With the appropriate upgrades and Commander skills, the cruiser’s detectability can be reduced to 9.1 km.
  • A wide variety of consumables: Surveillance Radar, Defensive AA Fire, and Hydroacoustic Search in separate slots.
  • The ship’s main protection is provided by her maneuverability and concealment. Her armor is relatively weak, even for a light cruiser.
  • She earns more credits per battle, and her permanent camouflage adds a 50% XP bonus per battle and reduces the cost of the ship’s post-battle service by 10%.
