Hello,  I was wondering if something could be done to fix the the armor on the Colbert?   According to the records of the ship( http://www.navypedia.org/ships/france/fr_cr_colbert.htm ) she had 50mm deck which is accurate,  50mm - 80mm which is partially accurate in game the,  the De Grasse (http://www.navypedia.org/ships/france/fr_cr_de_grasse.htm) had 38mm in the front of the belt but that was changed in the Colbert and added to the ship's stability.  The two ships shared the same armament and that would mean it has 100mm turrets and 95mm barbette not the 10mm, 15mm, & 12mm it has in the game.   The ship did exist unlike so many other ships in game so could something at least be done to make it more true to the once great french ship?   Thank you for you time,

Were the stats in game ever like it was IRL.

Just because a ship was changed doesn't mean it is inaccurate if it at 1 time had the stats in the game.

The models are not all the best they ever were...they use old stats to fit them into a tier to balance them.

I don't know if they ever were those stats...just wondering & explaining the concept.

It's not the model that's wrong it's the number value of the armor that's inaccurate.   The armor for the deck which is 50mm and the belt looks correct at 80mm and 50mm the problem comes into play with the gun armor in game 10mm, in real life 100mm the barbettes in game are 15-12mm and IRL they were 95-70mm(that makes huge difference ), meaning in game any ship can pen the gun armor damaging are destroying the guns if it had the real value they would not break so easy.  I don't expect everything to be just like Real life but if you make the entire belt the citadel( if it shared the DeGrasse Citadel design it states it was divided into 16 sections with 20-60mm bulkheads.) with weak armor with no internal protection at least make the guns have the accurate armor so every ship in the game can break it's guns.

Why put real ships and give them fake values?   They make fake ships most of the other lines with great values with much less obvious weakness.
