Personally, I enjoy Gascogne. The speed, handling, quick repair party time, better secondary layout and faster reload than Richy, all help make her fun. Plus she's an excellent captain trainer for the French BB line.

 

Of course there are downsides, difficult firing angles, large sides, and sometimes questionable accuracy, but if you can get over those hurtles, she's a fine ship.

 

 

 

Dunk is a different kettle of fish and only really comparable to Richy in the line. All forward guns gives you an 8 gun salvation at any target you fire at, she's quick, fastest of her tier, fast 28s reload, punchy, high penetration guns, and pretty decent HE with a good fire chance.

 

Downsides of Dunk however, are her weak side armor, bad accuracy, high pen guns a lot of the time over pen a cruiser rather than citadel it, extremely weak from behind, and weak AA firepower.

I have one.   Gun range should be reduced to 18km  and reload to 28 seconds.  Then I would enjoy it more.

Shooting at anything over 16km is a waste of time because of its dispersion.  At 380mm its guns should reload faster than 30 seconds.  The name "Gas can" is fitting since cruisers HE does tons of damage against its 30mm armor.

To have a real gg in it requires the right kind of "stupid" on the other side.

Huh.  I thought we'd settled on "GasCan" as the official unofficial nickname for the ship.

I will get most of this years premiums next X mas in a crate or Thanksgiving with the big ship sale if I am in need of Doubloons. I might get some if they have premium time included in the bundle, I am down to 90 days. Recent premiums have not been too exciting and quite gimmicky or odd camo and I do have 209 or so ships in port already.

I bought the first armada bundle and had all but 5 of the ships and made out with 170,000 doubloons or so and 37 port slots. Best doubloon deal ever.

the best garbaged for to buy! ulgy in combat

Your profile shows no games played in the ship so how can you call it garbage in all these threads? Did you play it on the PTS? If you haven't played it I don't see how you can make such a strong comment.

It is very true I do not have the gascone, but its users in the battle tells me that it is bad, and I think that they can give it a good buff, maybe it is an AA as 1944 version as richelieu, he has 152MM cannons as secondary defense but for its slow rate of reloading shot is useless. should give Slot 6, and maybe the gascogne improve a little..

 

but I'm afraid to vote the money for the garbage

I purchase the Gasconge. I hate the turret layout. However, I conducted 5 matches Gascogne vs a fellow clan mate in his Tirpitz (19-point captain) we both are spec in secondary build. Where he differs from me is he uses IFHE. I won all 5 matches due to able to start fires more frequently to him and amazing turn around times on heals and repair party times. I use Jean-Jacques Honore (19-point) from the Republique who has enhanced EM and AR. I allowed two fires to burn me down so to reduce my secondaries firing times. I set him on fire 13 times to his 7 times. Gascogne is a solid ship.

Hey

I too have been on the fence about Gascogne, but don't see the issue with the turrets only having 4 barrels each.  Since I have only run German BB's and they have 2 turrets but only 2 gun in each turret for 4 guns forward and they have served me well (got to love German dispersion) and even the Gascan has the same German dispersion.  I think of her more as a BB version of the Graf Spee which I love.  I'm interested in how she handles, dodging and weaving, absorbing damage.  I did 30+K damage to one yesterday with my Bismarck at fairly close range but being broadside, that is the same with almost any BB.  They seem fairly durable even if the guns are a little wonky but then my German guns are wonky too.  It's just a lot of money at $75 to get a 10pt captain; will it be as fun as my Alabama or even my Bismarck/Tirpitz, that is the question.

Gascogne is a decent ship.  The gun placements at first looked weird, but it's actually good if you use the ship as a raider.  Unlike the Richelieu, where all the guns are facing forward,  making it virtually impossible to conduct any rear action, the Gascogne got all sides covered.  This means that if the situation is too hot, you can turn around and bail while still can shoot back and just maybe you can sink a cruiser or two who are chasing you.  Or you can still shot at the guy you sped passed.  I enjoyed mine immensely.  I actually sank a 65% health Yamato the other night at less than 3km range while broadside to me with one single broadside.  There were a lots of citadels.

Hey

I  picked up the Gascogne and found it to be somewhat difficult to get a good game.  The gun placement was ok, no real issue but getting shots to do any real damage was tough, they just didn't behave like the Richelieu.  It handles decently, the heal works well, the turrets rotate ok, but I had mediocre results from it.  I was getting lots of overpens, little real damage so I switch to HE and did better (even though I detest using HE from a BB personally unless bow on) and had 1 ok game.  I think it will take more effort to get a really good game with it.  I was hoping for a larger Graf Spee which I love but so far have found the Gascogne to be a bit under performing at T8.  She fails compared to Richelieu in the main gun department and I don't think it's turret placement, or even dispersion, just a lack of damage, with lots of overpens, especially on cruisers which is a bit annoying.  I will keep working with it though as I do like how she handles.  She is NO Alabama!!!

Hey

Cascogne has potential and this is my best so far in it.  T10 game, top of the team with 2663 Base XP.

Hey

Another good Gascogne battle T8 game.  This one was only good enough for #2 beaten by a Fiji who earned Kraken, good job to him.  I got 1896 Base XP, Confederate, Dreadnaught.

I've played only a few games in her, but so far, i rather like her. The guns are very similar in velocity and dispersion as German ones, but I believe with better penetration. Her speed and agility is absolutely amazing when speedboost is on.

Sadly, her AA is absolutely garbage compared to Richelieu, which happens a lot with premium BBs.

I personally would not spec her for pure secondary spec like I would Tirpitz as her armor is not really suited for brawling, but their base range is still quite nice. Will definitely get AFT when I have the points to spare (went CE first).

Still getting a feel for her, but so far so good. Certainly better than Roma in my books.
