She’s a Danton, but with the smaller side turrets with smaller rifles removed and replaced with larger turrets and rifles to go along with the bigger ones to keep the main batteries consistent. Which is why the made up name that goes along with the naming policy of the Danton’s.

 

This is also stock hull.

Now to see what the T10 will be in full. I know she was listed as having a completely different gun from the 450mm, but still a pretty nasty gun.

Too bad... citadeling cruisers at 8km with 240mm "secondaries" could have been fun.

Interesting. We knew they would have to replace the 240mm with 305mms but I assumed they'd replace them with single 305s in the same barbettes to keep the same profile. I like how they just reimagined Danton with a full hex layout of 340mm twins. It keeps her similar to all of the other line T3s except South Carolina but she still feels like Danton.

I wish they'd show the upgraded stats, not much you can tell from stock. Looks generally ok though.

 

So at this point we've not seen anything on the T4, T9 or T10?

No. The names have been leaked and some stats on the tier 10 but they haven’t officially released the stats or pics yet.

We just need images of the the T9 and T10 now.

 

The T9 was datamined as Alsace N3, if I'm not misremembering. Though I do wonder if she'll come with an alternate gun option; maybe 3x3 431mm/50 cannons for a "traditional" 3x3 option at T9, trading more shells per volley for slightly better pen angles (where the 15" would bounce but not 16" or greater) and more damage.

 

The T10 was datamined as only having 431mm/50 cannons across quad turrets, but no specific turret count (I'd assume 3; and just be an upscaled and uparmored Alsace with more AA/secondaries, though 4 quads would be wild).

Interesting that the devs turned a semi-dreadnought into a full blown dreadnought.  The IJN had a semi-dreadnought class before the Kawachi that they could do the same thing to, if they wanted to create a premium tier 3 BB, the Satsuma class.  Though in all honesty, replacing the Satsuma's twelve 10" guns (in double gun waist turrets) with 12" guns (in addition to 1 centerline double 12" gun turret fore and aft) would make her better armed than the Kawachi, which only 6 total turrets, rather than the 8 total turrets of the Satsuma.

 

EDIT:  Wait, I see that the Danton reimagined (renamed the Turenne) replaced her 6 10" gunned waist turrets with 4 12" gunned waist turrets.  No reason now that they couldn't do the same for the Satsuma, except that all you'd end up with is another Kawachi.

This was the original plan for France's first Battleship since this design was popular but due to budget constraints it was put off and by the time they built their first BB this plan was considered obsolete already so it was never built

Those are some pretty ships! I've been looking forward to this line for a while now. I hope they perform well.

Thanks for the pictures!

I believe that was in the Simpsons, when the groundskeeper showed his distaste in teaching French due to budget cuts I presume?
