Battle Levels

Mogador — French Tier IX destroyer.

The most powerful large destroyers (French "contre-torpilleurs") among those built for the French Navy. Due to the placement of her artillery guns in twin mounts, the ship outgunned not only all of her predecessors in terms of firepower, but also most contemporary destroyers. Another special feature of the Mogador-class ships was the arrangement of their torpedo armament, where two torpedo tubes were placed along each side of the ship.

Player Opinion


Mogador is the Tier IX destroyer of the French Tech Tree. She continues the trend set by Le Fantasque, but with a welcome increase in firepower and a more convenient gun layout. Instead of five single mounted guns, Mogador sports eight in four twin mounts mounted along the centerline, making gunnery in total more convenient.

The most prominent features of Mogador are her speed, which can go well above 50kn as well as her Main Battery Reload BoosterWhen used, main battery reload time is significantly reduced., which gives her the edge in a duel vs another destroyer or allows her to rack up a lot of damage against a target showing broadside. At the same time her lackluster concealment means that opposing destroyers will have the option to react before Mogador can engage them. On top of that, the lack of a Smoke GeneratorWhile active, generates a smoke screen that blocks line-of-sight for both enemies and teammates. means that Mogador will struggle to disengage if required. Mogador’s torpedo armament is also lacking, making them more of a side weapon or a tool when rushing an opponent rather than a consistent factor.

This means that Mogador is best played in combination with an allied destroyer, to overcome her concealment issues and the lack of a smoke generator while the high burst damage potential allows the duo to dispose of any destroyers they might face.


  • Incredibly fast, can reach a ludicrous 54.8 knots with Engine BoostWhile active, increases a ship's speed by a fixed percentage. and the Sierra Mike (+5% to the ship's maximum speed.) signal flag
  • Powerful main battery guns with excellent HE and AP performance
  • High burst damage potential with Main Battery Reload BoosterWhen used, main battery reload time is significantly reduced. active
  • Very good healthpool for a destroyer
  • Decent mid-range AA suite
  • Very fast torpedoes with good damage and quick reload time


  • Lacks defensive tools of any kind and relies entirely on speed and dodging to avoid damage
  • Poor main battery reload speed
  • Slow turret traverse and poor firing angles
  • Very poor concealment. Concealment cannot be improved past 7.5 km.
  • Vulnerable to planes due to high aerial detection and lack of long range AA defenses
  • Torpedoes have high detectability


Availability of researchable upgrades for Mogador is as follows:

  • Hull: Upgrade to Hull (B) for a good chunk of hitpoints and a significant boost in AA, as well as a rudder shift improve. Research of this module unlocks progression to Kleber.
  • Gun Fire Control System: Upgrade to PCA n°9 Mle 2 for an extra 10% range on the main battery.
