Player Opinion


Pros:

  • Astoundingly long range for her tier, at 17.4 km.
  • Relatively small turning circle.
  • She can easily bring five guns on target at a time.
  • Armor works decently well at its tier.

Cons:

  • Lowest hit pool out of the tier 4 battleships.
  • At 21 knots, she isn't going to break any speed records.
  • Fairly large detection radius.
  • Anti-aircraft batteries shouldn't be trusted to turn away a strike.

Research

Availability of researchable upgrades for Courbet is as follows:

  • Hull: Upgrade to Hull (B) for a handful of additional hit points, a small bump up in AA capability, and quicker rudder shift speed. Research of this module unlocks progression to Bretagne.
  • Gun Fire Control System: Upgrade to PCA n° 4 Mle 2 for an extra 10% range on the main battery.
  • Propulsion: Courbet’s upgraded engines bump her top speed to 21 knots.
Upgrading to Hull (B) first is tempting, but captains are encouraged to invest in the range and speed upgrades first, or they risk not being able to actually enter combat on certain maps. The additional 2,800 hit points offered by Hull (B) are not a bad thing, but represent less than one full shell penetration from enemy battleship AP at this tier, and will not make or break a game; neither will the handful of extra AA guns she receives against Tier IV and V aircraft.

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

The recommended upgrades for Courbet are as follows:

Commander Skills

Key skills for Courbet commanders include Expert Marksman, Basics of Survivability, and Fire Prevention.

Consumables

Courbet can equip the following consumables:

Camouflage

Type 1, 2, or 5 camouflage can be equipped for credits; Types 2 or 5 are recommended at a minimum to reduce the accuracy of incoming shells.

Signals

As a Tier IV ship, it is highly recommended to save signals for use in the later tiers. But should the player have a surplus and enjoy playing this ship, they should utilize the following recommended signals. Equal Speed Charlie London (+50% XP earned for the battle.), Zulu Hotel (+50% Commander XP earned for the battle.), and Dragon Flag (+333% Commander XP earned for the battle.) signals are recommended for faster commander (re)training.
