Does Strasbourg make Dunkerque OP?

Why would you buy the same ship at a tier higher, when the tier 6 version has basically the capabilities but will never meet tier 9 opponents?

Same reason people buy Jean Bart over Richelieu. That MBRB and the ability it gives you to make full use of any broadside opportunities. Don't underestimate it. However JB/Richie are much tougher than the Dunkerque sisters, you can't get away with bow tanking big gun BBs in the lower tier ships (I've tried... :etc_swear:)

Dunkerque is a fine tier 6. Not too good, but not bad either.

 

Following in a proud tradition of Christmas premiums, Strasbourg is on the weaker side owing to inconsistent guns, poor concealment and low survivability. I agree that Dunkerque is probably better tier for tier, though Strasbourg’s advantages make it arguably more interesting to play and there are better alternative tier 6 battleships anyway (Arizona for one).

Suppose the reload booster is worth something

If I get it I guess I will find out if its good or not

1.7 vs 1.8 sigma 51 mm more belt armour

 

Was about to say that I could have sworn Strassbourg feels the more acurate of the two..

I quite like my Strasbourg - good fun with the reload booster and can get good pens on broadside BB’s
