Colbert — French promo premium Tier X cruiser.

Designed and built after World War II, and equipped with powerful dual-purpose 127 mm artillery, this relatively small cruiser was primarily used for AA defenses.

Colbert was first released in August 2019 along with the Research Bureau, where she remains available for 57,000 Research PointsResearch Points.

Player Opinion


Colbert proudly serves at Tier X, representing France. She is equipped with numerous small-caliber 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 maneuvers in order to avoid being sent back to port prematurely. Colbert has a quick rate of fire, but her armor and low gun-caliber restrict her ability to hold out against more-heavily armored ships with large-caliber guns, such as her tech-tree counterpart, Henri IV. Her stock firing range is relatively lackluster, 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 Party (While active, restores a percentage of the ship's health points each second.) consumable to restore hit points after a close call.


  • Ridiculous shell volume and DPM, excellent rate of fire
  • Extremely fast main battery traverse speed
  • High shell arcs, ideal to shoot targets from behind islands
  • Improved Repair Party (While 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 Boost (While active, increases a ship's speed by a fixed percentage.) consumable found on French destroyers
  • Strong AA suite, aided by the Defensive AA Fire (While 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


  • Very fragile ship - small hitpoint pool, poor armor and large, poorly protected citadel
  • Sluggish rudder shift for a light cruiser
  • Very short main battery base range, requires upgrades and captain skills 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 Generator (While active, generates a smoke screen that blocks line-of-sight for both enemies and teammates.)


As a premium ship, Colbert doesn't have any upgrades to research.

Optimal Configuration


The recommended upgrades for Colbert are as follows:

If available, Engine Boost Modification 1 (Increases the action time of the Engine Boost and Emergency Engine Power consumables.: +50% action time.) should be equipped in Slot 2.

Commander Skills


Colbert can equip the following consumables:


As a premium ship, Colbert comes included with Type 20 camouflage that lowers her detection radius, reduces the accuracy of incoming shells, reduces her repair costs, and increases the amount of experience she earns.


Note: Use of the Juliet Charlie signal makes detonation impossible.
