8 barreled shotgun. The accuracy looks horrible.

looking at its dispersion, will be on par with monarch - but the loss of a barrel will hit its effectiveness too

Normally the premium one will be the most famous of them, if possible "the most real" - good for sales. Thus I suppose Richelieu will be the premium.

 

Gascogne as "almost paper/planned ship" silver ship at tier 8 will somehow consolate the English playerbase who suffered a lot when similar Monarch was implemented.

 

This leaves Jean Bart as certain at Tier 9 in 195x config, silver or premium. Rather premium because notoriety of a real ship.

 

Looking forward for tech tree T9 and T10 announcements.

You are right, it is not WG tradition.

If silver ship, perhaps it's the optional doubloons permacamo or some planned reward permacamo.

possibly, but you also have to take into account that none of the upcoming french battleships have been pictured with a permacamo

Correct me if I'm wrong but wasn't the Jean Bart also planned?

 

If so that would mean 3 T8 BB? Gascogne, Richelieu and Jean Bart.

yes really surprised with this newcomer. Where does Jean Bart come into play, no problem with Richelieu in the tech tree? Some extreme AA build as T9 Premium or give away /freeXP?

 

That said I have  nothing against this quads fore and back thing as she was planned.

What is the secondary artillery on this beauty like?

 

The gun dispersion tastes Tirpitzy - maybe the Secondaries as well...?

Secondary seems quite good indeed. Base range is 7km. So it will be as good as Tirpitz i think :)

Thanks, that is interesting. Can’t wait to see the first reviews for her! Hope the 7km stay :-)

I think cardinal would be better as a premium. Byt we have dunk at tier 6 so straight up ripoff for two tier higher bb was impossible. Premium ships must be unique. So probably cardinal will be standard, Gascone first premium with only 2 turrets and Jean will be second premium but with something special, torps or sonar.

WOW 

 

2x4 380mm?! Looks like you are going to have to expose your whole citadel to fire that rear turret. And if you ever lose one, there goes half of your main battery.

If they follow how they did it with the UK, the one more traditional in design (Gascogn) will be the silver ship and the one different in design and playstyle the premium (Richelieu), just like the did with Nelson (frontgun only) and King George V (AB-Y or whatever it is called).

 

As far as I know the Dunkquere and the Richelieu are the only frontgun ships in the tech tree atm, would make sense to make Richeleu premium then?

It's been confirmed that the Richelieu is the regular, and Gascogne the premium.

And if Richelieu were the premium, there would be riots.

Besides, the only other 2x4 A-X ship in the branch is the France on T10. Everything else follows a different configuration, so making a rule out of one ship doesn't make much sense.

No undewater citadel, it is vulnerable to its own gun.

 

Which I appreciate. Enough submerged citadels. 

 

Gascogne looks awesome :-)
