probably everything

 

FR BBs have next to no armour, and while angled it's good enough to bounce 457mm and smaller AP that's about all it can do.

Exactly like any other BB you can't overmatch -> broadside = AP, angled = HE :fish_palm:

Fire into their side. Like with all BBs. Don't fire at BBs from the front, unless your AP has large enough caliber to overmatch their bow. Here's a table, you can use the ingame armour profile viewer to see where overmatch applies.

 

Given you're in your Großer Kurfürst, if you invested into your secondaries, you can also just get closer and let them help out in killing the French BBs.

 

And as long as the French don't catch your flat side armour, they'll just bounce off all day too. Großer Kurfürst can even frustrate Yamato.

APs in the superstructure can gives you one or two massive salvoes before they are damage saturated too.

 

In the worse case, if anything else (flanking, getting close for secondaries, etc.) can't work and you don't have any better target, switch to HE. But that's really a last resort thing

No ship in the game is truly indestructible, you sir must have  not been aiming at the correct spot, or the vessel in question not as fully broadside as you think.
