From the WG Fest 2017 news: there will not only be the launch of the French BB line, they will also get a port (and a captain)

The port I want to see:

St. Nazaire with the sub pen and a DD that stuck in the gates of the Forme Jouber drydock

Unquestionably Toulon. The game has so many flat city ports. Toulon has mountains - Toulon was the traditional Mediterranean French naval base. Yeah, okay, Saint Nazaire had the sub pens - WHEN IT WAS OCCUPIED BY GERMANY. That's not "French" - it's German. Not to mention that the things are ugly as sin - just a giant, concrete box.

Definitely Toulon. It was at the time of WWII France's main naval base. I'm not sure, but I think Toulon still is France's main Naval base.

Exactly this! It is as close to having sub's as I want...

I actually like the current Dunkirk port.  It's the port with the best war atmosphere.

Also have the DD crawling with German soldiers looking for souvenirs and then it explodes.  Then every minute or so repeat the animation

You can see Notre Dame de la garde, church in Marseille. But the problem is that it is not a military port, i hope i am making a mistake and that it will be Toulon....

meh, if you want subs play a dd.

 

wanna submerge and remain undetected well within visual acquisition range?  that's a dd exploiting the poorly designed (or broken if you want to be blunt) stealth/spotting mechanics in this game.

wanna have a crash dive mechanic that let's you get out of sight when well within visual acquisition range?  that's how smoke works in this game.

wanna be fragile as all get out and be completely screwed the moment you get spotted without a way to escape detection quickly?  dd in a nutshell.

want torps to be your primary weapon and your guns to be only effective against lightly armored and small ships?  again... dd.

 

dd's already are the submarines of this game, they're just called destroyers instead of submarines.
