Talk about the vehicle's armour. Note the most well-defended and most vulnerable zones, e.g. the ammo magazine. Evaluate the composition of components and assemblies responsible for movement and manoeuvrability. Evaluate the survivability of the primary and secondary armaments separately. Don't forget to mention the size of the crew, which plays an important role in fleet mechanics. Save tips on preserving survivability for the "Usage in battles" section. If necessary, use a graphical template to show the most well-protected or most vulnerable points in the armour.

Some ships are fitted with weapons of various calibres. Secondary armaments are defined as weapons chosen with the control Select secondary weapon. Evaluate the secondary armaments and give advice on how to use them. Describe the ammunition available for the secondary armament. Provide recommendations on how to use them and which ammunition to choose. Remember that any anti-air armament, even heavy calibre weapons, belong in the next section. If there is no secondary armament, remove this section.

An important part of the ship's armament responsible for air defence. Anti-aircraft armament is defined by the weapon chosen with the control Select anti-aircraft weapons. Talk about the ship's anti-air cannons and machine guns, the number of guns and their positions, their effective range, and about their overall effectiveness – including against surface targets. If there are no anti-aircraft armaments, remove this section.

Abstain from writing an entire guide – don't try to provide a single point of view, but give the reader food for thought. Talk about the most dangerous opponents for this vehicle and provide recommendations on fighting them. If necessary, note the specifics of playing with this vehicle in various modes (AB, RB, SB).

Pros and cons

Summarise and briefly evaluate the vehicle in terms of its characteristics and combat effectiveness. Mark its pros and cons in the bulleted list. Try not to use more than 6 points for each of the characteristics. Avoid using categorical definitions such as "bad", "good" and the like - use substitutions with softer forms such as "inadequate" and "effective".

History

Devblog History

While Italy was ramping up its construction of dreadnought battleships in the early 1910s, the decision was made to construct another two battleships in order to meet its naval rearmament goals. As ships of the Conte di Cavour class were already under construction at the time, shipbuilders decided to base the new class off the design of the former, while only applying some minor changes. This design was completed within six months and construction was ordered in September 1911.

Andrea Doria was laid down in March of 1912 in the Spezia dockyards and was subsequently launched the following year. However, it wouldn't be until 1916 before the warship was considered complete. This was due to numerous delays in the fitting out period, primarily due to difficulties in the supply of the ship's primary battery guns which caused significant delays. Nonetheless, the ship did see completion and officially joined the ranks of the Regia Marina in August 1916.

Despite entering service in the middle of WWI, Andrea Doria didn't see much combat action as the primary adversary - the Austro-Hungarian navy - operated in the Adriatic. However, as the Italian navy deemed the danger of submarines and minelayers for capital ships to be too great in the narrow waters of the Adriatic, most ended up not being deployed for extensive combat operations in that particular theater.

As a result, Andrea Doria survived The Great War without great incident and continued its service into the postwar period. In this time, it helped suppress a rebellion in Fiume and undertook several diplomatic missions to a number of ports in the Mediterranean and Black Sea. In August 1932 however, Andrea Doria was withdrawn from active service and placed in reserve. Starting in 1937 and going into 1940, Andrea Doria underwent a full reconstruction, which drastically changed the warship's visual appearance and combat capabilities.
