Player Opinion


Pros:

  • Long range for its tier.
  • High initial shell velocity, gives Champagne great AP shell penetration.
  • High Explosive shells have a good fire chance.
  • 406mm guns allow it to overmatch 27mm of armor.
  • A high top speed of 34 knots, plus the Engine Boost (While active, increases a ship's speed by a fixed percentage.) and Sierra Mike signal means Champagne is one of the fastest battleships in the game.

Cons:

  • Survivability is poor due to a moderate HP pool and lack of standard tier 8 battleship armor (has 25mm bow and stern).
