The Pr.1124 (1940) is a rank II Soviet armoured gun boat with a battle rating of 2.0 (AB/RB/SB). It was introduced during Update 1.79 "Project X" when the Soviet fleet was implemented into the game.

General info

Survivability and armour

As an armoured gun boat, the ship's structure has some considerable armour for the type outside of its armament, at least enough to resist against small-arms fire and shrapnel. No matter how thick the armour is though, they do cover nearly all critical module in the ship from stray fire except the transmission and steering gear at the rear.

Armour type:

  • Hardened armour
  • Antifragmentation armour (Fuselage roof)
  • Cast homogenous armour (Cannon turrets)

Primary armament

Main article: F-34 (76 mm)

The Pr.1124 is equipped with two 76mm T-34 turrets, essentially using the same guns as used on the T-34 tank. These guns are fairly large for this BR, but they require a different strategy than a typical torpedo boat owing to it having a decent reload time. You cannot just spray bullets with this ship; you must aim for certain modules with a greater precision than if you could just use a machine gun. When a good hit occurs, it usually causes a considerable amount of damage for the opposing ship, and may even cause hull breaks against smaller ships. HE is the recommended ammo for this gun as most ships at this BR have low to no armor and are vulnerable to explosives.

Secondary armament

Main article: DShK (12.7 mm)

With two standard-issue 12.7 mm DShK machine guns as its only armaments supplementing the 76 mm turrets, the Pr.1124 (1940) is vulnerable to savvy torpedo boats and other nimble opponents, particularly at close range. Hitting fast-moving targets with the 76mm guns can be a significant challenge, and the long reload times compared to lower-caliber automatic weapons give only a handful of opportunities for aim adjustment. As these machine guns pull double-duty as AAA they're also often unavailable for naval targeting. Proceed accordingly, being cautious to avoid engaging enemies who fall into this ship's mid-range weaponry blind spot.

Usage in battles

You've got fantastic long-range firepower at a very low BR, but limited defense against fast and evasive enemies + air power. Accordingly, the Pr.1124 (1940) should fight conservatively at at the longest possible range your gunnery skill affords. At this BR, very few opponents will have large-caliber guns that can play ball at range, and even fewer players will be able to target them effectively, so use that to your advantage.

Also note that repair costs for such a low BR vehicle are very high, which is another reason to avoid charging into the fray. The ship is lightly-armoured but not nearly well enough to be able to take much of a beating.

Pros and cons


  • Two 76 mm turrets provide excellent long-range firepower
  • Turret layout allows firing of main guns in a 360-deg. radius around player
  • Rather quick turret traverse
  • Small, nimble and quick-turning ship, given the firepower


  • Extremely vulnerable to air attack- two 12.7 mm machine guns with limited fields of fire are your only hope
  • Quick naval targets like torpedo boats difficult to hit with 77 mm guns
  • Very high repair costs relative to tech tree/ranking (currently almost max. 2500 Silver in AB) can make its ineffective use costly


Describe the history of the creation and combat usage of the ship in more detail than in the introduction. If the historical reference turns out to be too big, take it to a separate article, taking a link to an article about the vehicle and adding a block "/ History" (example: and add a link to it here using the main template. Be sure to reference text and sources by using <ref>, as well as adding them at the end of the article.


An excellent addition to the article will be video guides, as well as screenshots from the game and photos.
