Image result for Christine Ribbe marine nationale

Of all of the warships available to the French fleet, which one has the best service record for you?

The French line features versatile cruisers armed with both guns and torpedoes, while the battleships have powerful guns paired with armor and speed.

There are also premium vessels, including a powerful destroyer, that offer unique traits and characteristics helpful for the team.

When it comes to your Marine Nationale, which ship gets the "Bateau d'Or" (Golden Ship award)?

"Of the love or hatred God has for the English, I know nothing, but I do know that they will all be thrown out of France, except those who die there." - Joan D'Arc

Richelieu has always treated me the best when compared to Nagato and Iowa.

Normandie, but that's possibly because I'm not yet really familiar with Lyon. Also, pretty Ocean Liner camo.

Emile Bertain. It's a citadel printing AP machine against other cruisers, even uptiered and an unholy terror to red DDs.

De Grasse, not only because it is my only French ship with a respectable number of games played. :Smile_facepalm:

But it is a very comfortable ship to play and it uptiers rather well to boot.

The only French BB that hasn't worked for me is the Republique.  The Alsace has the mojo though...

Both the Republique and the Lyon.  Two great ships, both assets to the game. Lets add a real female captain to the game: Capitan Fregate Christine Ribbe

De Grasse is my favorite to play. Fast, maneuverable, effective HE and AP, long range torps to make people think you have DD support when you don't.  It also doesn't do too badly when bottom tier.

Algérie is another fun ship, especially with the gun setup.  I need to play it more, but alway keep an eye on them when I see them on the red team.

Just getting into the BB line, but so far very much liking the Normandie and finally giving the Gascogne runs in Randoms.  Gotta love the speed boost and quick heal :)

Pre-nerf Alsace was awesome, I haven't played it in its current iteration.  My favorite is the Republique though, I like the fast reload and how punchy and (generally) accurate the guns are.

Speaking of reloads, anyone else waiting for Jean Bart? :)

Overall, Dunkerque, Normandie, Lyon, Richelieu, I assume Alsace and potentially Republique all feel great and dangerous. I feel like I have noticed less Alsace's lately though compared to when the line began.

Looking at my play history, the answer can only be one thing.

Duguay, Emile, and my recently acquired Algerie, which is taking the place of my Pensacola as my tier VII CA of choice.

I can absolutely relate to what you're saying!

LaGal is the French ship that I play best in.  My best French win rate is in Aigle, though it cannot be due to me as I suck with that ship.   :Smile_Default:

J’aime la Gal, she flings gasoline soaked baguettes. Like Aigle for the ops and Dunk before she got power crept.

Vive la France!

If I was going to pick one French ship as my all time favorite French ship, De Grasse is it. She's pretty robust, has great maneuverability, her guns are very accurate and hard hitting, and her her torpedoes are decent. Honorable mentions to Dunkerque, Emil Bertin, and Henri IV.

Pensacola's a tier VI nowadays pard.

Dun - all my guns are forward, it's fast, and I'm an aggressive player. It could only be better if it had main lines secondaries of insanity as you go up. Really want Rich (Normadie and Lyon have been massive struggles for some reason), Though currently tossed on getting Gascogne (could use an extra French trainer that's higher tier,pretty sure I have a camo for it) or Mass (Much as I have AZ, Ark Beta, and Indy - it's a USN brawler more or less)

Oof, tough one, this is a really close race for me. I think Dunkerque wins out overall, but Richelieu, La Galissoniere, and Algerie are all great fun in varying degrees to me. I haven't had Gascogne long, but she's treated me right so far. I feel a song coming on~!

Dunk is still great IMO...but I like the Republic when I feel like putting up with Tier X, LOL. I also like the Martel as far a cruisers go.
