a Yamato got into a knife fight with my Colbert, its only salvo overpenned me cos I was 0.5km away, and he tried to get guns on me again as I slipped passed him shooting at him in 3rd person but he went into an island and I just AC-130 around him out running his turrets: shot-20.04.08_12.11.05-0252.jpg

I Like the Colbert a lot but I do wonder why wargaming made the ship so weak compared to the real life ship.  Everything I have read said that the Colbert had a newer  armor protection than the Degrasse and they shared the same armament which the armor is completely wrong on. Specs for the De Grasse taken from (http://www.navypedia.org/ships/france/fr_cr_de_grasse.htm)

Ship protection

 

(as completed): Torpedo bulkhead protected the hull between end gun mounts. Main 100mm belt protected machinery and command center under main deck, it was about 2m narrower abreast magazines. Transverse bulkheads had 60mm thickness between main deck and upper platform and 20mm between upper platform and double bottom. They were placed forward from fwd 127mm mounts, between command center and 127mm mounts Nos3 and 4, between machinery spaces and aft gun mount and aft from aft gun mount. Belt was closed by 38mm main deck. Steering gear compartment had 38mm crown, 26mm sides and 20mm transverse bulkheads.

Ship protection for Colbert

Machinery was protected by 80-50mm belt and 50mm deck

The only thing that is said about Colbert is she had  some modifications done not downgrades. (http://www.navypedia.org/ships/france/fr_cr_colbert.htm)

I know its a rant but with all the time spent on making imaginary ships great can you at least make a real life ship accurate?   Good luck to all the other captains out there.

It would be nice if WG gave it that historical armor buff, but I don't see it happening sadly due to her current reputation

Never thought that this many shell hit ribbons would be possible in random battles.

50mm deck would be sick on Colbert :) However WG will never do that...

My only question about the ship is, can it still be purchased or is it one of the ships that got discontinued? I don't see it in the ships available for purchase in the premium shop! Thank you in advance for the response! Cheers :CA: :cap_cool:

I wish i was better with her... I'm good at dealing a proportional amount of damage with her, but not many super good games like you guys have apparently. I noticed she requires a good understanding of how the battle is flowing to get the most out of her. Just sitting behind an island the whole time can be counter productive late game when you get surrounded and pummeled by an enemy push for example.

Colbert is not available via the Premium Shop.  You have to use the Research Bureau to unlock her.

Frankly I hate Colbert about as much as I do Smolensk.  It's the same braindead cancer-style HE spam gameplay with the troll armor that just generates overpens when they should get their citadels blown out.  Best two ways of dealing with them that I have found is supercruiser (305mm) AP or large caliber (457mm+) HE.  Even then there are no guarantees because the stupid things stop or turn on a dime.  No clue what WG was thinking adding ships like Colbert and Smolensk.
