    Soon. Soon...

    On the flip side, I wonder what it is that will make this ship line unique from other BBs.

    Early 2018, says the vid, and not for Christmas 2017.

    From the ships teased, I guess quad turrets from Normandie onwards, all the way up to Alsace.
    Interesting that Lyon/ Normandie have their mid turret flipped to pointing forwards.
    Also going from the 12-gunned Lyon to the eight gunned Strasbourg will be quite a jump. At least Strasbourg will have them all forward. And Alsace will have one pointing backwards.

    Or maybe that one anniversary achievement was less a joke than we thought and we get a line of FBBs with Engine Boost

    Maybe? I wonder how useful that would be. Using it on the cruisers lets you kite and dodge like the Russian DDs, but the battleships aren't as manoeuverable and are a bigger target. Besides, Dunkerque and Richelieu are among the fastest already.

    @Lord Harrab Only 2 classes would be like that, for Tier IX-X, I have zero clue.

    @M.A.Mitscher
    We have already discussed the high tier French battleships a while earlier with @Mobius and @DLRevan. We will most probably end up having the Alsace class battleships at T9 with either three quad 380mm or three triples 406mm. For T10 we'll probably have a paper design ala Conqueror, with (my best guess) three quads 406mm or three triples 457mm.

    @Keyan_TTK If WG is going to treat those 457s the same way they treated Conqueror's 457s, they can keep that shit on the drawing board. Curious to see what they do for strengths and weaknesses. USN, IJN, German, and now RN BBs all are spectacular, keeping pace with that will be fun.
