Émile Bertin — French Tier V cruiser.

A light cruiser specifically designed to have the highest speed possible and a powerful artillery. The ship's small displacement was limited by international treaties so she received only minimal armor protection.

Player Opinion

Performance

Émile Bertin is the Tier V French light cruiser. Less a typical light cruiser and more of a "super destroyer", Émile Bertin sports heavy firepower and incredible speed, but almost no armor. Because of this, close-in slugging matches with enemy battleships and heavy cruisers are to be avoided at all costs. Additionally, the main battery guns have a very sluggish reload time, further limiting the ship’s abilities in close quarters engagements.

Rather than relying on armor for protection, Émile Bertin captains must use her speed and range to avoid incoming shells. With a blistering top speed of 39 knots, a range of nearly 15km, triple-mounted turrets with decent dispersion, and good turning characteristics, Émile Bertin can easily dodge incoming fire and pick the range at which it chooses to pepper the enemy. Émile Bertin’s armor piercing shells work great against enemy cruisers and other broadside targets, and a full HE salvo will crush most destroyers in 2-3 volleys.

Émile Bertin is also equipped with a triple torpedo launcher per side. The firing angles of these launchers almost rival those of Katori’s, meaning that the ship does not need to turn much to be able to fire. The torpedoes are also quite fast and long-ranged for their tier, making them useful against enemy warships who get too close, or for area denial.

Pros:

  • AB-X turret layout allows two-thirds of its firepower to be deployed even when bow-on.
  • The fastest Tier V cruiser with a top speed of 39 knots.
  • Quick rudder shift time and a decent turning radius allow her to easily dodge incoming fire.
  • The main turrets traverse quickly meaning that her guns will remain on target even during hard turns.
  • Excellent torpedoes with 60 knots speed and 9 km range, with generous firing angles.

Cons:

  • The ship is virtually unarmored. Her main belt reaches a maximum thickness of only 13mm.
  • Reload time remains mediocre at 12 seconds.
  • Only one torpedo launcher on each side; half as many as the preceding ship in the line, Duguay-Trouin.
  • Anti-aircraft capabilities of the ship are very limited.

Research

Émile Bertin has only two purchasable modules: the hull and gun fire control system. Researching the second hull is recommended before researching the gun fire control system as it will grant the ship additional hit points as well an upgraded anti-aircraft armament. The gun fire control system offers an increase in range from 13.6km to 14.9km.

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

Émile Bertin has access to three upgrade slots.

Commander Skills

For tier 1 skills, there are several options worth training a commander with. Skills such as Priority Target and Incoming Fire Alert may help notifying a player when they are in danger of taking damage from incoming shells. Preventative Maintenance may also be useful for lowering the risk of modules becoming incapacitated.

For tier 2 skills, Expert Marksman has limited usefulness due to Émile Bertin’s already quick turret traverse time. Instead, Adrenaline Rush is recommended to help reduce the reload speed of the main turrets when the ship takes damage. Jack of All Trades may also be useful to reduce the reload time of consumables.

For tier 3 skills, Demo Expert is recommended to increase the fire chance of the main armament guns. Superintendent may be of use in granting the player an additional consumable of every type. Lastly, Torpedo Armament Expertise is recommended to reduce the amount of time between torpedo salvoes.

For tier 4 skills, Concealment Expert and Inertia Fuse for HE Shells are recommended. Concealment Expert provides a bonus to the detection range of the ship. Inertia Fuse for HE Shells will boost the penetration of the ship's HE shells at a cost of fire chance. This will allow the HE shells to damage some areas of Tier VII battleships that they would normally not be able to do. Advanced Firing Training may also be of use to increase range of the ship's anti-aircraft guns.

Consumables

Émile Bertin has access to the following consumables:

Mounting the premium version of the Damage Control Party consumable is recommended to reduce the time between each repair.

Camouflage

Émile Bertin does not have access to a premium camouflage purchasable with doubloons. Instead, it is recommended to mount Type 1, 2, or 5 camouflage for increased survivability. Other economic camouflage such as the Ocean Soul camouflage may also be used to speed up the process of obtaining the next ship.
