Player Opinion

Performance

Bayard is a Tier VIII French cruiser primarily excelling in 'run and gun' tactics. She is equipped with a powerful Engine Boost (While active, increases a ship's speed by a fixed percentage.) consumable which enables her to reach a very high sustained top speed, especially when used in tandem with a Sierra Mike signal flag. She sports medium caliber guns, similar to those found on the Tier VI French premium cruiser De Grasse, with the added bonus of having an additional turret. These turrets are relatively quick to traverse and feature a quick reload time, which can be further accelerated by utilizing the Main Battery Reload Booster (When used, main battery reload time is significantly reduced.) consumable.

Bayard serves best in open water environments, utilizing her speed and agility to dodge enemy fire. If cornered, she has a torpedo armament to defend herself. Bayard will likely benefit from division play wherein the player is escorted by a destroyer or cruiser with a smoke generator to provide portable cover or a way to return to concealment when an engagement goes wrong. Bayard will be punished by medium and large-caliber armor-piercing (AP) rounds. For this reason, it is critical to maintain a reasonable distance from enemy capital ships in order to provide a small window of time to employ evasive maneuvers.

Pros:


Cons:

  • Fragile, small health pool and large exposed citadel block
  • Fairly short main gun range
  • Bow/stern armor is thin, can be easily overmatched by large caliber guns
  • Rather weak torpedo armament
  • Poor main battery firing arcs


Research

As a premium ship, Bayard doesn't have any upgrades to research.
