Pros:


    Cons:

      Research

      Researchable upgrades for Brest:

      1. Hull: Upgrade to Hull (B) for improved survivability and maneuverability. Research of this module unlocks progression to Marseille.
      2. Gun Fire Control System: Upgrade to PCA no 9 Mle 2 for an extra 10% range on the main battery.

      Optimal Configuration

      Upgrades

      The recommended upgrades are:


      Engine Boost Modification 1 Increases the action time of the Engine Boost and Emergency Engine Power consumables.: +50% action time. is recommended in slot 2 for players that have large coal reserves, to further boost Brest's Engine Boost duration. But for those short on coal, it may be better to save that upgrade for Marseille.
      In Slot 4, both Propulsion Modification 1 Reduces time to full speed: -50% to time for reaching full power. / Increases engine power when the ship starts moving. and Steering Gears Modification 1 : -20% rudder shift time. are viable options. Damage Control System Modification 2 : -15% flooding recovery time. / -15% fire duration. is available for players that want to reduce her 60 second fire duration, but is less optimal.

      Commander Skills

      The Honoré brothers feel particularly well-suited for the French large cruisers with their improved Grease the Gears skill.

      Consumables

      Brest equips the following consumables:

      Signals

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