Just recently got the Jean Bart with coal out of the Armory. Very pleasantly surprised. First ship with all forward facing guns. Just my opinion it's design has a advantage over the other forward facing BB's with the fact there is just two turrets. stacked, so can face directly ahead or slightly angled on bow and still give a "broadside" without having to show broadside. Longer range than anticipated. Just hadn't really researched main battery range. Fairly nimble, reload booster, speed booster. A well designed battlecruiser in my opinion. Smaller calibre rifles is the only reason I say that. A nice compliment of 2ndaries. Overall, I give it a thumbs up. If anybody was thinking of getting it. Speaking personally, I don't think you will regret it.

The turrets seem to get knocked out fairly often because of the design , you should take skills and modules to mitigate that .

I call those "mullet BBs" (serious business up front, secondary party in the back).

You would like the Richelieu and Dunkerque as well... give them a try sometime.

Did the same - great ship, one of my top 5 favourites (the Mass being another). :Smile_honoring:

Lol@MulletBB's 

Thanks! I actually kinda had a "meh" feeling about those when I first seen them. Now, I am like um, not bad, not bad at all. Actually pretty good. I almost never see the Dunkerque in random anymore

We'll, having played the Jonah Bart off and on now. I have come to the conclusion it  is the best open water cruiser I have lol.

Ill soon be getting the Jean Bart myself but as a current owner of Dunkerque I can attest to how fun she is at T6.  Incredible bow tanking ability and can hold a position very well.  Along with the speed to get away if things go downhill.

I recently got the Bart as well. It's a good ship. You have to angle things right with it. It has good speed, decent guns. Fun to play.

Does she have the Bow tanking ability like dunkerque or not as much?

She's about the same as a cruiser. Play cautiously
