( Some fun humor to start the morning lol. Of course if you want to take this seriously I would have no objections as long as I got to use it.)

Many have noticed the helicopter pad on the Republique with the nice H on it. So I have found the perfect helicopter to go with the Paper ship Wargaming came up with... :fish_book:

If you have any doubts about this idea, just go and watch some episodes of the TV series Airwolf to see it’s performance and then decide after maybe watchIng the first 3 Seasons of it... :Smile_teethhappy: ( Did not like the 4th season so in my eyes they only made 3 seasons)

If you want a 'period' (For when WG says Republique was designed) helicopter, an Alouette II or III with floats is a good bet. Having it simply be a vision tool would be nice.

Exactly so, but less Dutch writing on it. If anything, just a model in port would be cute.

Well I would not mind seeing some Copters as recon-craft for ships at higher tiers.

My head-canon is that it was fitted with SNCAC NC.2001 Abeilles

If we're going full experimental, might as well go all out.

Since the ship is supposed to be WWII-era (or just barely post WWII) a navy version of the French SNCASE SE.3120 Alouette (designed in 1951) would have quite likely been the helicopter it would have carried. Once you get into designs of the late 50s and early 60s you are way past the tech period of WOWS. By that time there were jets like the Crusaders, which the Navy was still flying when I was in the Army.

Other contenders are the Sud Ouest Ariel and Djinn, but the Djinn was only used by the army, as well as the Abeilles Chobittsu suggested.

Yeah, I suggested this shortly after I got the Republic...I knew Airwolf would be a bit OP...

But how about some Blue Thunder action?

"Red Republique," the upcoming Russian Tier 7 Premium BB (a near-carbon copy of Republique as the plans were allegedly liberated personally by Stalin, only the Russian version has 10k more HP and a Khab literally duct taped to each side for torpedoes and more secondaries), has a squadron of these that use the helicopter pad. Please note that you can only operate one at a time unless you're using the capt skill for two spotter planes; however, there is no cool down so a new one is launched if first is shot down, and they can destroy most ships in under 60 seconds.

I believe you forgot to mention that "Red Republique" will also have 2 second reload time on main guns, 90% torpedo protection, and a detection range of 4 km.

Three second reload. Let's not engage in hyperbole or wg will nerf the French version of Republique and claim Red Republique is somehow balanced by nerfing French Republique.
