 +''{{#var:ship_name}}'' is alike most other battleships at her tier in her turret layout and general firepower. She does not introduce anything revolutionary armor and protection wise, nor does she break any speed records. Any veteran ''[[Ship:New_York|New York]]'' or ''[[Ship:Texas|Texas]]'' player should be familiar with the playstyle needed to do well in ''{{#var:ship_name}}, though there are some key differences.
 +
 +''{{#var:ship_name}}'' introduces players to the staple 340mm guns found on the next two ships in the French battleship line, though in two gun mounts rather than the distinctive quads. This makes the transition down the line quite comfortable—at least, until reaching ''[[Ship:Richelieu|Richelieu]]'' and her 380mm guns. As far as ''{{#var:ship_name}}'s'' place at tier 5, she fits well among most other battleships. Her top speed of 21 knots isn't anything remarkable, and USN battleship players should remember how it feels playing a ship so slow. Certainly, being able to plan ahead will aid any ''{{#var:ship_name}}'' player greatly, as it takes too long to reposition otherwise. Thankfully, 18.1 km of range makes the low speed somewhat more comfortable, and allows for greater map presence with her guns.
 +
 +For a tier five ship, ''{{#var:ship_name}}'s'' armor is not bad. It certainly holds it's own against equal tiered opponents, and her belt armor even extends up to the the bow of the ship, just above the waterline. Other than that strip of belt armor, she has the usual 19mm plates vulnerable to overmatch by any other battleship, so take care when fighting others.

Bretagne — French Tier V battleship.

A series of French battleships built in response to the appearance of British "superdreadnoughts". These ships were developed directly from the ships of the preceding class but carried 340 mm guns arranged under a more rational scheme.

Player Opinion

Performance

Bretagne is alike most other battleships at her tier in her turret layout and general firepower. She does not introduce anything revolutionary armor and protection wise, nor does she break any speed records. Any veteran New York or Texas player should be familiar with the playstyle needed to do well in Bretagne, though there are some key differences.

Bretagne introduces players to the staple 340mm guns found on the next two ships in the French battleship line, though in two gun mounts rather than the distinctive quads. This makes the transition down the line quite comfortable—at least, until reaching Richelieu and her 380mm guns. As far as Bretagne's place at tier 5, she fits well among most other battleships. Her top speed of 21 knots isn't anything remarkable, and USN battleship players should remember how it feels playing a ship so slow. Certainly, being able to plan ahead will aid any Bretagne player greatly, as it takes too long to reposition otherwise. Thankfully, 18.1 km of range makes the low speed somewhat more comfortable, and allows for greater map presence with her guns.

For a tier five ship, Bretagne's armor is not bad. It certainly holds it's own against equal tiered opponents, and her belt armor even extends up to the the bow of the ship, just above the waterline. Other than that strip of belt armor, she has the usual 19mm plates vulnerable to overmatch by any other battleship, so take care when fighting others.

Pros:

  • Main battery ballistics are great.
  • Respectable AA.
  • Belt armor extends to the bow.
  • Third turret faces forward, giving it fairly good angles.
  • Citadel is well sloped and protected.

Cons:

  • Slow, at only 21 knots.
  • Can be overmatched in most places.
  • Turrets traverse slowly.

Research

For the Bretagne, research her Fire Control System first, to give a boost to her in game presence and a buffer against higher tiered ships. Then, get her upgraded Engine next, for that ludicrously fast 21 knot top speed. Finally, grab the upgraded Hull for the health.

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

The recommended upgrades for Bretagne are as follows:

Commander Skills

Key skills for Bretagne commanders include those that increase her survivability, and make her gunnery more comfortable.

Bretagne can equip the following consumables:

Camouflage

Type 1, 2, or 5 camouflage can be equipped for credits; Types 2 or 5 are recommended at a minimum to reduce the accuracy of incoming shells.
