I would like to see French cruiser rudder module getting a buff...

I mean, it's quite sad that I can knock out a Saint Louis' rudder twice in a row, after having my own Saint Louis' rudder knocked out twice in a row.

I thought those benches on the rear were supposed to protect my rudder, because they are spaced armor?

 

It's not just Saint Louis, but it seems that the entirety of T5~9 has this issue.

I know IJN cruisers also have this issue, but the one saving grace on Ibuki, is that it doesn't lose its rudder as often as Atago.

 

Like the rudder breaking this often is just silly for a T9

I run both steering gears modules in the 4/5 slots and the repair time is like 8 seconds which makes it basically irrelevant if your steering gears get knocked out unless you are way too close anyways.

No, french steering gear before T10 is terribly weak.

You have no choice but the use LS on french cruisers, they lose steering gear every other hit...it's WG's way of "balancing".:Smile_hiding:

Ok then... This might be more of an issue with the captain than the ship. Invest in last stand...

I'm no professional on the French cruisers as I've barely touched the line. But they appear to be very fast ships with a high fire chance and squishy armor. Like an overgrown DD gunboat.

So spec the captain like a DD. Last stand. Its only 2 points...

LS is your only real savior ^^

FWIW, I've ground up to HIV and its true that the french always lose their steering gears. Its a huge pain sometimes lmbo
