Jurien de la Gravière — French Tier II cruiser.

Jurien de la Gravière was the last protected cruiser built for the French Navy. The ship's silhouette and architecture were typical of French warships at the turn of the 19th century. Powerful 165mm guns distinguished Jurien de la Gravière from the majority of foreign counterparts.

Player Opinion


Large guns and heavy armor put the Jurien de la Gravière at the top of her tier in terms of sheer force... at least on paper. Unfortunately, actually playing her a frustrating experience due to her slow speed and slow reload, the latter made worse by her abysmal accuracy.

Placed alongside her peers at Tier II, Jurien is fairly mediocre. She has average speed, rudder shift time, detectability, and health pool. The big differentiation between Jurien and all the other Tier II cruisers in the game is the size of her guns. Jurien wins that category hands down, mounting 165mm rifles mounted in a mixed configuration (some along the centerline, some not). As a result, her shells pack some of the biggest punch captains will find in low tier cruisers; unfortunately, her overall damage output is hampered by long reload times and so-so accuracy.

Jurien is at least better than Bougainville, but she's not really a stand-out at Tier II; that honor is reserved for Tier III's Friant.


  • Citadel top and sides are heavily armored and below the waterline.
  • Large-caliber guns for its tier.
  • Generous health pool.


  • Low rate of fire.
  • Horrible accuracy; shells frequently over- or under-shoot.
  • Infuriatingly slow at only 23 knots.


Main battery range is the greatest weakness of Jurien de la Graviere, so players will likely want to research the Fire Control Systems module first, saving the hull module for last (on their way to Friant).

Optimal Configuration


Like Bougainville, Jurien has only one upgrade slot. Captains should equip Magazine Modification 1 (-70% to the risk of your ship's magazine detonation.) or 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.) for the limited time they'll play the ship.

Commander Skills


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.
