Algérie — French Tier VII cruiser.

The last heavy cruiser built for the French Navy, and one of the best representatives of this type of ship in Europe. Among the cruisers of her time, she was distinguished by powerful armor and very good torpedo protection.

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

Algérie has access to slots 1, 2, 3, and 4. The following are recommended.

Commander Skills

The following will serve well for most French cruisers, with special mention to Last Stand as a near-required universal skill for the line.

Consumables

Algérie can equip the following consumables:

Camouflage

Algérie has no special camouflage beyond her available Type 17 Camouflage at this time. It provides the following benefits: -5% to post-battle service, +4% to the dispersion of ships firing at the player, -3% to the concealment of the ship, and +50% XP earned in battle.

Signals

Zulu, Zulu Hotel, Papa Papa, Equal Speed Charlie London, and Dragon Flag are left entirely to the discretion of the player.
