Bumped to IX, originally intended for VIII.

According to a CC or two.

Folks please bear in mind that the Dev blog in terms of new ships are very early looks that are quite susceptible to change based on testing and feedback.

As per the post on the 10th of July found here the ship was amended to be a T9 ship.

I'm not entirely convinced with 8x 15 inch guns at tier 9 even with the gun reload booster thingy. At T8 I'd probably have bought it. At T9 I'm just going to save the free xp for something else.

  It's essentially the Richelieu one tier higher, isn't it??   I'll probably pass, too- unless it turns out to be a real winner.   Oddball turret arrangements mainly just annoy me...  And I share your concerns about 8x forward facing 15" guns at tier 9- esp if they are in keeping with the French flavor of meh penetration and accuracy.

 Lyon gets away with being severely under (size) gunned at tier 7 by having twice as many guns as everyone else.  (and on a smaller, more agile platform to boot)

 Jean Bart will have both fewer AND smaller guns.   What else can they do to offset that?   Secondaries don't mean much when teams stay 18-20 km away from each other, and High tier BB's are already lousy with great AA ships- with few CV's to use them on.   Superfast reload?  Maybe, but it would really strain the bounds of "game reality" in what we've come to expect from 15"ers.   Laser accuracy?  An interesting French BB quirk- and absolutely terrifying to everyone else.  (BB's are inaccurate for a reason, after all, lol)

 Personally, I LIKE that the devs made the French BB's the "well balanced line"  good enough to very good at most things, without being flat out great at anything.   Nor do they rely on weird gimmicks, or being the "foil" or polar opposite of another existing line.   They're simply fun to play- reliable, sturdy, and with no arbitrary glaring weaknesses or WTH over the top strengths.  They play like... well, like battleships!

  I'm hoping the Devs find a way to keep that trend going with the premiums.  ( Richelieu's mini -me Dunkirk notwithstanding)
