Player Opinion

Performance

For a graphic summary of ships Tiers VIII thru XI see LittleWhiteMouse's "Actual AA DPS".


Colbert proudly serves at Tier X, representing France. She is equipped with numerous small-calibre main guns sporting lightning-fast turret-traverse time and rate of fire. This blistering firepower can prove to be overwhelming to nearly any ship unlucky enough to find herself on the receiving end of a barrage from these guns.

As a French ship, Colbert is fast. She has access to the Speed Boost consumable, which is most effective when paired with a sierra-mike signal flag. Players intending to deploy Colbert in open water must utilize her speed and employ evasive manoeuvres in order to avoid being sent back to port prematurely. Colbert has a quick rate of fire, but her armour and low gun-calibre restrict her ability to hold out against more-heavily armoured ships with large-calibre guns, such as her tech-tree counterpart, Henri IV. Her stock firing range is relatively lacklustre, meaning that players should expect to devote at least four commander points and/or an upgrade module slot to extending her gun range. Colbert can be a very rewarding ship to play, but she demands a captain who will utilize her strengths to play strategically. Her speed can get her into dangerous situations very quickly--without a torpedo armament or access to a smoke screen consumable, a bold playstyle will likely be punished very harshly by the enemy. Luckily, she has access to numerous charges of the Repair PartyWhile active, restores a percentage of the ship's health points each second. consumable to restore hit points after a close call.

Pros:

  • Highest AP and HE DPM in the game, excellent rate of fire and fire chance
  • Extremely fast main battery traverse speed
  • High shell arcs, ideal to shoot targets from behind islands
  • Improved Repair PartyWhile active, restores a percentage of the ship's health points each second. consumable, higher than average health restoration and one extra charge
  • Has access to the same Engine BoostWhile active, increases a ship's speed by a fixed percentage. consumable found on French destroyers
  • Strong AA suite, aided by the Defensive AA FireWhile active, the damage per second of large caliber anti-aircraft guns is increased. consumable
  • Good ship speed and tight turn radius
  • Good concealment with all the relevant upgrades
  • Rate of fire means highest fires started per minute in the game

Cons:

  • Very fragile ship - small hitpoint pool, poor armour and large, poorly protected citadel
  • Sluggish rudder shift for a light cruiser
  • Very short main battery base range, requires the Gun Fire Control System Modification 2 Extends the firing range of the main battery: +16% firing range. to improve it
  • High shell arcs and low shell velocity make hitting targets at long range difficult
  • Has to rely on allied smoke and hard cover a lot, as it lacks a Smoke GeneratorWhile active, generates a smoke screen that blocks line-of-sight for both enemies and teammates.

Research
