French Battleship & Battlecruiser – Tier IV, V & VI Proposal by Volcanares

The second part of a French Battleship & Battlecruiser proposal by Volcanares.

In today’s article I bring you all Tier IV, V and VI French Battleship and Battlecruiser, proposed by Volcanares. Later this week I’ll publish another article with Tiers VII, VIII, IX and X.

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.
