JUst skip a few minutes in. It is Bretagne and Richelieu?  Apparently French battleships are now 2018.

Just because the French BBs are pushed back to 2018 doesn’t mean the Italian cruisers won’t come in 2018 still. The devs even said they’d be the last line released for 2018 and wouldn’t even arrive until December 2018.

Alright, so the three ships shown were Bretagne, Lyon or Normandie (3 quad turrets), and Richelieu.

A shame, but not unexpected, considering they decided to arbitrarily advance work on the Pan Asian line ahead of the French BB line. They also decided to postpone the RN CV line too until after their CV changes, and both were due out Q4 2018 (basically from now to December).

 

I just hope the French BBs get a reasonable gimmick, such as improved acceleration/deceleration, and long-range secondaries. That would be plenty sufficient considering their pretty decent guns and likelihood to play bow on or angled (while giving them the capability to vary speeds more often, throwing off aim in a manner slightly different to RN BB maneuverability). Then here's hoping Jean Bart is in her 1955 form (even w/o radar or planes; just as long as she gets all that sweet secondary/AA) while Richelieu gets a similar fictional upgrade; just with half the secondaries/AA but same increased bulge (potentially improving TDS as well).

 

I do find it slightly ironic though that there hasn't been a single murmur about the 3rd VMF DD line, despite having already been modeled and stated to be coming to the game in 2018. Then again, they're still probably testing out unguided cruise missiles as some form of "flying torpedo playstyle".

They already scrapped the missile system as too OP/unfun for the target. Jean Bart 1955 seems beyond excessive for tier 8AA.

I’m guesing the Richelieu they showed us is her final hull seeing as she has her US refit in the pics.

I think the French BBs should be unique enough to not need any gimmicks and still be a fun line.

So it appears going off of the line drawing of Normandie: they have given for her top hull, a interwar refit with her B turret turned around, fully new superstructure, cut down a funnel, torpedo bulges, and an Atlantic bow.
