Player Opinion

Performance

Algérie is one of the strongest Tier VII cruisers yet available for research. Possessing superb range, Algérie is best played as a second line ship, lending fire support from behind friendly battleships. Algérie has strong armor, range-performant AP, and good HE with an average fire chance. Players should look to use range to increase their ability to evade incoming fire, and the Engine Boost consumable allows for re-positioning opportunities at a whim.

Pros:

  • Excellent range.
  • Very good shell ballistics.
  • Long range torpedoes with excellent firing arcs.
  • Excellent overall maneuverability.
  • Strong armor.
  • Fastest Tier VII cruiser (with Engine Boost active).
  • Low vertical dispersion like all French Cruisers.

Cons:

  • Mediocre firing arcs for both forward and aft batteries.
  • Poor anti-aircraft protection.
  • High, boxy citadel, especially forward.
  • Slowest Tier VII cruiser (without Engine Boost active).
  • Even with speed boost activated, some fast battleships have speed to chase you down.
  • Abysmal detection range.

Research

Because Algérie is so reliant on range for protection, players will find the increased maneuverability provided by the "B" hull to be helpful in survival, especially when bottom tier. Additional range provided by the Gun Fire Control System module is the only other available option.

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

The following are recommended:

Commander Skills

Last Stand is critical as French cruisers are prone to steering damage.

Consumables

Algérie can equip the following consumables:

Signals

Note: Use of the Juliet Charlie signal makes detonation impossible.
