Player Opinion

Performance


Pros:

  • Relatively short reload of 26 seconds on her main battery which can be further enhanced by her Main Battery Reload Booster (When used, main battery reload time is significantly reduced.).
  • Relatively fast top speed of 30knots which can be increased with Engine Boost (While active, increases a ship's speed by a fixed percentage.) to 32.4 knots. Increasing further with the Sierra Mike (+5% to the ship's maximum speed.) signal flag to 34 knots.
  • 7km base secondary range able to reach 10.6km when running a secondary build.
  • All of her secondaries fire HE with her 152's boasting an impressive 12% fire chance combined with a rapid reload.
  • Good concealment allows Jean Bart able to reach 12.3 km surface detection.
  • Excellent range of 24.5km on her main guns.
  • Her forward armament placement allows for easy angling of her armor.
  • Good rudder shift time and turning circle.
  • One of the best AA suites at tier IX make her a deadly ship against enemy aircraft.

Cons:

  • Lowest HP of any tier IX Battleship
  • 32mm plating vulnerable to HE spam
  • Weakest broadside of any tier 9 battleship with little overmatch ability.
  • Most AA power is in weak mid-range mounts.
  • Most secondaries are unable to deal direct damage to many surface targets.
  • Secondary guns can get easily taken out with HE spam.

Signals

Jean Bart captains should mount standard signal flags to improve the ship's performance in battle. Sierra Mike (+5% to the ship's maximum speed.) flags are highly recommended to increase the ship's top speed. India Delta (+20% to the amount of HP recovered when the Repair Party consumable is used.) and India Yankee (-20% to fire duration.) flags should be mounted to improve the ship's survivability. November Foxtrot (-5% reload time on all consumables.) flags can also be mounted to decrease consumable cooldown time. Lastly, economic and special signal flags can be mounted to increase the ship's economic gains per battle.
