    Ship Discussion: Aigle

    And here comes (at last) the big French contre-torpilleurs, with their 138.6mm guns!
    The French WoWS Facebook unveiled the French Premium T6 Aigle, which was also the first French DD class to be armed with these Big Guns.





    Now let's wait and see the IG performance of said guns....

    (Also, gib Le Fantasque and Mogador pls)

    Another fucking T6 French premium. For fuck sake WG, would it kill you to add a good captain trainer?

    Stats from the devblog:

    ST, French destroyer Aigle, tier VI.


    Hit points - 17 000, plating - 10-16 mm. Main battery - 5х1 139 mm. Firing range - 12.8 km. HE damage - 1000, AP damage - 2600. Reload time 4.8 s., 180 degree turn time - 18 s., maximum dispersion - 111 m. HE and AP initial velocity - 700 m/s. Sigma - 2. Torpedo tubes - 2х3 550 mm, torpedo range - 7 km, torpedo speed - 57 kt, reload time 77 s., maximum damage - 18 400. Maximum speed - 36 kt. Turning circle radius - 680 m., rudder shift time - 4.1 s.

    Destroyer speeds usually aren't correct in game, except for some rare exceptions (like poor Akizuki), so let's not fret too much overt this. I'm much more worried about her guns' performance though.

    @Keyan_TTK Soviet DDs get the speed achieved during speed trials, this one gets the design speed. I still feel like it needs to be called out.

    I'm hoping the HE damage is a leftover of Bougainville's stats, otherwise playing this ship is going to be a miserable experience.

    Someone posted an interesting comparison of Aigle with other T6 and T7 DDs. The should really buff the HE dmg to acceptable level, give it its trial speed and move it to T7. Seems like far less hassle than balancing it for T6.

    I think Aigle is fine as is at T6. She's big (like Gaede), not as nimble as Farragut (again like Gaede), her reload is a bit slower than most of her t6 counterparts, and she has USN style shell arcs because of her slow shells. It's not the unholy offspring of Kiev with Benson's turrets and RoF.

    The SEA Group has datamined more of Aigle's data. Here's the most interesting one:

    @Mobius That French Trainer is going to be a certain Tier VIII BB!

    @M.A.Mitscher

    Don't remind him. He wants it as a Tier IX FreeXP Premium for about six months now. And he's already been disappointed by De Grasse which could have been the French Atlanta with flatter shell arcs.

    36 knts + 20% = 43.2knts
    37.15 (her trial speed) + 15% = 42.7knts

    There WG, I made the ship more historically accurate and kept it balanced by giving it 1.1knts in base speed at the cost of 0.5knts with speed boost active. YOU'RE WELCOME.

    Problem with Jean Bart has pretty much T10 AA, while the rest of the ship is T8.5 ish. While it wouldn't be too hard to make it balanced at T9, at T8 they would have to give it significant nerf that are almost fucking guaranteed to be shitty sigma and/or bad reload, because WG has a fucking boner for balancing BBs by making them less skill reliant (and therefore a lot less fun).
