Yet, there is no Wiki info on her.  Seems like they are kind of jumping the gun on this one.

it looks like the ship have extra credit per battle,thanks to the permanent camo. i don't know if that is the -10% cost or more credits.

wish i could get her but i'm saving up for prinz eitel. i'm a fan of big gunboats with ridiculous guns.

What they have is the torpedoes and AA.  The gun section shows a 6s reload and it has been mentioned it is 5s.

Also still WIP.

Kind of like buying a Let's Make a Deal Box right now.

Well, can't exactly be a Work In Progress anymore  if I can buy this version of it.

That was in the Wiki.

I looked what stats they show in the premium shop, and it shows most of them.

This.

If Terrible is available for purchase, that means this version is finalized, or at least considered to be so. Now, if it's an acceptable premium and in need of tweaks is another matter entirely.

So far there hasn't been a LWM review on the ship, I'm really curious to see Mouse's opinion.

I'll gladly wait for @LittleWhiteMouse's review before making any final decisions on Le Terrible.  Up to this point, Aigle has fulfilled all my needs for a French destroyer, so unless there is something new this ship brings to the table (ie: a good competitive-use ship?), I'm not sure how much reason there is to pull the trigger.

Going to skip this one. I find it funny that they mention it gives up smoke for main battery reload. Yeah I get a few more shots in before I die because I can't disengage. Should have been a choice between a heal or smoke.

Same here, I know zero about the Le Terrible :Smile_facepalm:

After you fire your guns it's 20 seconds after you stop firing no matter how fast you move.

Hurry up, LittleWhiteMouse!  We need your input here.

Le Terrible seems to be an awful nice gunboat and dovetails nicely with the way I like to play my dds.  No smoke, no problem.  I usually rely on my maneuverability anyway.  I love a knifefight.

I have been learning when and how to use the reload booster with La Galissonniere.  

Please let us know what you think LWM.  I would be most grateful.

CS

p.s. - Can we all agree to call La Galissonniere by a handy nickname?  How about LA Gal, or Gwen?

p.p.s. - @LittleWhiteMouse Do you have a Ko-Fi account?  I feel the urge to buy you a coffee.

I have plenty of T8 destroyers, so I'm just wondering, form a competitive sense, what this ship can bring to the table that any of the other ones at T8 can't.  Speed alone isn't a good enough selling point for me.

from what i saw yesterday,le terrible have a better muzzle velocity for her guns and mbrb on a 139mm gun looks nasty even if temporary. her maneuverability is what concerns me,waiting for that review to come out.

Which brings us back to "Yeah I get to fire my guns a few more times before I'm dead". 

I still think having a choice between a heal and smoke would be great. One way you can try to avoid the damage the other way you can try to heal it back if you survive. One caters to team play the other caters toward open water gun boating. Which would make the ship more interesting.

smoke only caters to teamplay if the DD use it like that, the heal is a double edge sword,it gives a false feeling of invincibility, i have a nueve de julio,healing all the damage taken only to get flanked by a enemy because i "rushed" is a good example. for now we will see how she fares in the live server. at gunfights with other DDs,if i stop firing my guns,i lose the caliber advantage,okhotnik is a example too,she relies on alpha dmg instead of RoF. still,i will wait for LWM review.

That's how I play my DDs.  Smoke isn't for me it's for my cruisers. While I do have good guns on my DD I still can't match what a cruiser can do using it. I enjoy the Brit DDs but the smoke does seem a bit selfish in that I can't really provide a teammate with much of a escape or cover for firing.

because british DD smoke is the antithesis of pan asian dd smoke for example,it is the defensive mechanism of british DDs since they lack speed boostah.

True but then you need to hug islands to break line of sight which kind of negates your speed. I have no idea what waifu-chan is either.
