Duguay-Trouin — French Tier IV cruiser.

The world's first large warship designed and built after World War I. The ship had virtually no armor protection but carried very powerful torpedo armament. An innovation that was implemented on this type of ship was the arrangement of her main guns in twin-gun superfiring turrets.

Player Opinion

Performance

One of the fastest cruisers at Tier IV, Duguay-Trouin boasts powerful short-ranged torpedoes, fast shells, and a great main battery firing range. She is roughly analogous to Tier V Russian cruiser Kirov: a poorly armored, speedy cruiser with good shells and shell velocity, large detectability radius, and very long main battery range.

Overall, Trouin’s profile is rather large and her main battery reload is on the slow side for 155mm guns, though the guns are comfortable to fire. Her rudder shift is worst-in-tier and her concealment is quite poor, which makes her an easy and obvious target for enemy ships. Additionally, her armor is virtually non-existent (like all other Tier IV cruisers). She has plenty of speed and a generous torpedo armament, though the range on them means that they are best suited for ambushes from behind islands or against distracted battleships.

Her rudder, along with the other French cruisers, tends to feel prone to incapacitations; captains may wish to equip Steering Gears Modification 1 (-20% to the steering gears repair time. / -20% to the risk of the steering gears becoming incapacitated.) and/or invest points into Level 2 commander skill Last Stand to help compensate.

Pros:

  • AB-XY turret layout is excellent for its tier.
  • Decent main battery shells.
  • Fast shell velocity.
  • Decent turret traverse.
  • Many torpedoes and good torpedoes for the tier and ship type.
  • Fast ship speed.
  • Can equip Hydroacoustic Search (While active, detects all enemy ships and torpedoes within the specified radius, regardless of obstacles (such as smoke screens or islands).) once Hull (B) is mounted.

Cons:

  • Poorly armored (like most other Tier IV cruisers).
  • Slow main battery reload for 155mm guns.
  • Poor anti-aircraft capabilities (like most other Tier IV cruisers).
  • Slow rudder shift.
  • Poor concealment.

Research

Quickly research Hull (B) for increased health pool and better rudder shift. Then research the second Fire Control System module (PCA n° 4 Mle 2).

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

Duguay-Trouin only has access to only the first two upgrade slots. Captains are recommended to equip Main Armaments Modification 1 (-20% to the risk of main battery becoming incapacitated. / +50% to main battery survivability. / -20% to main battery repair time. / -20% to the risk of torpedo tubes becoming incapacitated. / +50% to torpedo tubes survivability. / -20% to torpedo tubes repair time.) (as the most useful weapons she boasts are her main batteries) and either Damage Control System Modification 1 (-3% to the risk of flooding and damage received when torpedoes hit the torpedo protection. / -5% to the risk of fire.) or Steering Gears Modification 1 (-20% to the steering gears repair time. / -20% to the risk of the steering gears becoming incapacitated.).

Commander Skills

Consumables

Duguay-Trouin 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 cruiser with a good fire chance, Victor Lima (+1% chance of causing a fire for bombs and shells with a caliber above 160mm / +0.5% chance of causing a fire for bombs and shells with a caliber below 160mm. / +4% chance of causing flooding.), India X-Ray (+1% chance of causing a fire for bombs and shells with a caliber above 160mm. / +0.5% chance of causing a fire for bombs and shells with a caliber below 160mm. / +5% to the risk of your ship's magazine detonating.), and Juliet Charlie (-100% to the risk of your ship's magazine detonating.) are the most recommended for extra fire damage. Victor Lima & India X-Ray increase the fire chance while also increasing chances of you getting flooding and being detonated, thus Juliet Charlie is used to counter the de-buff effect. November Foxtrot (-5% reload time on all consumables.) can assist in reducing cooldowns for the consumables slightly, but may be life-saving (such as having Hydroacoustic Search ready and activated in time to evade enemy torpedo salvo). Sierra Mike can also be handy for getting around to places, as this increases Duguay-Trouin’s speed to a good 34.7 kts. Equal Speed Charlie London (+50% XP earned for the battle.), Dragon Flag (+333% Commander XP earned for the battle.), and Zulu Hotel (+50% Commander XP earned for the battle.) can assist captains with increased experience gain per battle and faster commander (re)training.
