    Les Cols Bleus intensifies indeed.

    After the RN CL line with AP only, looks like a pretty "conventional" cruiser tree, with some protected cruiser designs for the early tiers, light cruisers at mid tiers and Big Guns at the top.

    My FreeXP is ready.

    Algerie at T7...hm....

    But you know, if you consider the armor specs of the paper ships at the top end as historically planned, it may not be that weird.

    Speaking of the top-end, don't forget to spot the torps...

    We need a name for these. If Baguettes are battleships and Croissants the cruisers, how should we call the Destroyers ?

    Let's have a vote !

    @Keyan_TTK Biscuits. Bagels. Crullers. Crumpets.

    I vote cruller for the larger lot. and macaron for the smaller classes.

    Crullers are big "sticks" with a strong punch. Macarons are small cute snacks that disappear fast.....hehe....


    Or is there a french pastry starting with the letter "D" that I'm not aware of.

    Speaking of flavors, the frontal arrangement of most of the French cruisers really brings out their national flavor:

    *Twitches*

    You could at least have made an effort to bundle this with a joke on our ships' habit to hump our ports' seabed when there are British shells flying, whether they were our enemies or our allies.

    @Keyan_TTK I have come to like a certain degree of subtlety. If I went that far, its like slapping you French back and forth across your face.

    But really. It is fascinating just how apt the design of French cruisers and battleships has serviced this practically 60 year old meme. And now reinforced a video game where reversing a warship in combat is a valid option!
