Historical World of Warships

French Battleship & Battlecruiser – Tier II & III Proposal by Volcanares

Hello everyone,

Volcanares emailed me a big file whith loads of French Battleships and Battlecruisers. He created a proposal branch that mixes both battleships and battlecruisers, with several alternatives on some tiers.

Because the list is very long, twenty five ships in total, I’ve decided to split the article into several ones by Tiers. The first part will have all Tier II and III proposals, so the article doesn’t end up very long.

Again, I’m no expert here, so I’ll leave it up to you guys to evaluate if this could be a good branch for World of Warships, if there are any particular ship you would like to see, etc.

Please note this is just a proposal by a player. There is no guarantee Wargaming will implement this branch as its proposed, neither should you consider this article as confirmation of a French Battleship Branch is coming to the game.

I’ve created a list with French Battleships and Battlecruisers which could be added to World of Warships,.

I gathered data from several places, as accurate as possible, but there could be some errors.

According to the sources, data change because of the year and the evolution or improvement of the ships and projects. Furthermore Wargaming will have to balance and to create different hulls and other modules, so the data might change even if these are the good ones.

I’ve added  Tier II, Pre-Dreadnought, even if I know they will not be added to the game for now, but who knows ? Maybe one day.

  1. A 17500 tons BC designe with 35knots speed and with 8 305mm guns. Just how the fuck? Its just impossible.
    Look at the Des monines. Thats a 17k tons cruiser from 1948. And it has
    around the same armor like this impossible dream. And only can do 33 knots. Not to mention the gunpower.
    Just how good the frech were, where they do better than US from 45????
    And with only 200m length they do 35 knots with a 18k tons desinge???
    Not a little bit optimistic thnking xD
