Enseigne Gabolde — French Tier II destroyer.

An experimental destroyer equipped with a new type of turbine. The ship was laid down before the start of World War I, and was completed after the war ended. Based on the experience gained during wartime, the ship was armed with more powerful armament—in particular, formidable 550 mm torpedo tubes.

This ship entered the tech tree on 24 Aug 2019.

Player Opinion

Performance

Enseigne Gabolde starts the French destroyer line and shares with her successors a high speed and an absence of the Smoke Generator consumable. Her respectable main battery range of 8.90 km right out of the box allows captains to engage from a distance and quickly retreat. However, Enseigne Gabolde's high detectability range, the second largest for destroyers of her tier, coupled with her lack of Smoke Generator, pressures captains to pay close attention to the minimap in anticipation of enemy ambushes.

Enseigne Gabolde is a very effective support ship. Her three main battery guns of two bow superfiring turrets plus a third aft turret are well-supported by her two double tube torpedo launchers. Her torpedo launchers have a wide, easy to use arc and reload in a decent 35 seconds. The torpedoes themselves have a respectable speed of 52 knots and long reach of 7 km that allows Enseigne Gabolde to torpedo while unseen, further reinforcing and encouraging her support role. To fully maximize all of Enseigne Gabolde's capabilities, captains must utilize both her torpedoes and her main battery guns.

Captains who find Enseigne Gabolde's smoke-free, run-and-gun play style enjoyable will surely benefit from what the rest of the French destroyer line has to offer. Care must be taken to stay at range and allow for options to retreat as a Smoke Generator is not available to soften the impact from mistakes.

Pros:

  • Fast torpedo reload.
  • Fastest turret traverse of all Tier II destroyers.
  • 2nd highest artillery range of all Tier II destroyers (behind Storozhevoi)

Cons:

  • Does not have access to the Smoke Generator (While active, generates a smoke screen that blocks line-of-sight for both enemies and teammates.) consumable.
  • High detectability range (2nd highest of all Tier II destroyers).
  • Difficult to get all 3 turrets to bear.

Research

Availability of researchable upgrades for Enseigne Gabolde is as follows:

  • Hull: Upgrade to Hull (B) for improved health pool and better maneuverability. Research of this module unlocks progression to Fusilier.
  • Gun Fire Control System: Upgrade to PCA n° 2 Mle 2 for an extra 10% range on the main battery.
It is recommended for captains to first research the Hull upgrade for Enseigne Gabolde. Captains may decide to then proceed immediately to the next ship on the tech tree, Fusilier, or to research the PCA n° 2 Mle 2 upgrade for extra range on the main battery guns and increased competitiveness.

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades
