 ''{{#var:ship_name}}'' has a fairly unique play style compared to that of the other Tier X battleships. Luckily, she plays quite similarly to the previous ships in the French battleship line, so lessons learned in the previous ships will be useful with ''{{#var:ship_name}}''. She is primarily a "flanker", relying on her mobility and good accuracy to punish enemy broadsides from unexpected positions.

?Unlike ''[[Grosser Kurfurst]]'', the biggest flaw with ''{{#var:ship_name}}'' is the 32mm plating that covers every non-superstructure surface of the ship, a trait she shares with ''[[Conqueror]]''.

République — French Tier X battleship.

A version of the battleship design of the post-war period. Her main distinguishing features were very powerful AA guns and 431 mm main battery guns, which were developed in France in the late 1930s.

Player Opinion

Performance

République has a fairly unique play style compared to that of the other Tier X battleships. Luckily, she plays quite similarly to the previous ships in the French battleship line, so lessons learned in the previous ships will be useful with République. She is primarily a "flanker", relying on her mobility and good accuracy to punish enemy broadsides from unexpected positions. In addition, her 17 inch guns are able to overmatch 30mm, a plating found on many high tier cruisers, which when coupled with her fast speed and good mobility make République an excellent cruiser hunter.

République has an excellent mobility advantage over her same-tier counterparts, and — combined with her average concealment — her play style becomes fairly similar to that of Hindenburg and a little bit like Montana as well. Her mobility is best used to reach opportunistic positions and flanks, where her amazing guns and gun handling will facilitate destruction of enemy ships from the side. Her mobility can also be used to close within "brawling" range of isolated battleships, allowing République to make use of her secondary battery. Just like German battleships such as Großer Kurfürst, République's citadel is protected by a turtleback armor scheme, making her nearly impossible to citadel up close, further reinforcing her position as a brawler. Her mobility also allows her to leave engagements quite easily, although her concealment leaves something to be desired in this situation.

Unlike Großer Kurfürst however, the biggest flaw with République is the 32mm plating that covers every non-superstructure surface of the ship, a trait she shares with Conqueror. This makes her incredibly vulnerable to HE shells with a caliber of 203 mm or higher, as well asIFHE-equipped light cruisers. Ships such as Des Moines, Conqueror, Hindenburg and especially Tier VIII+ IJN gunboat DD's with IFHE are extreme threats to République, more so than most enemy battleships. Her plating also makes her vulnerable to overmatch hits from Yamato and Musashi. Furthermore, at long range, her belt and citadel armor are quite weak to battleship Armor Piercing, and even high-tier cruiser AP. The Des Moines is capable of citadelling République from 11 km out to her max range of 18.4 km, with the Hindenburg and the Henri IV having similar, though slightly less consistent, results. République also suffers from the same weakness Yamato possesses, being able to be citadelled through the "cheek" below the front turret when bow-in.

Overall, République possesses a unique play style for a battleship; her mobility, guns, reload time, and poor protection make her play more similarly to a high-tier cruiser than a battleship, while her concealment, hit points, and damage are still those of a battleship. République can be a very fun ship to play, even if her "competitive" potential — in Clan Battles, for example — is almost non-existent.

Pros:

  • Fastest firing main battery battleship guns at Tier X with a 24 second reload, which can be reduced to 20 seconds with her unique upgrade and even more with the Adrenaline Rush skill active.
  • Strong, long ranged secondary battery suite.
  • Turtleback armor makes her almost impossible to citadel in close-quarters.
  • Strong AA armament, with a large concentration of strength in dual-purpose mounts and no short range aura.
  • Fastest battleship in the game when her special French Engine Boost (While active, increases a ship's speed by a fixed percentage.) is active.
  • Great shell ballistics make for easy long-range engagements.
  • High penetration and the ability to overmatch 30 mm armor allows it to do damage to both battleships and cruisers with consistency.
  • Good accuracy makes landing consistent salvos quite easy.

Cons:

  • 32mm armor covers the entirety of the ship, except where it is 19 mm, making her incredibly vulnerable to HE shells from spammers and overmatch from the 460 mm guns of Yamato and Musashi.
  • Poor belt and citadel protection.
  • Large size makes her an easy target.
  • Only eight guns in a poor turret arrangement greatly limits her flexibility. If one turret is destroyed, she loses half of her firepower. It is uncommon, but possible.
  • Secondary/AA guns are easily destroyed.
  • Poor maneuverability.
  • Poor concealment.

Research

As a Tier X ship, République has no available modules to research.

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

The recommended upgrades for République are as follows:

Commander Skills

République can make use of a variety of builds, and it's the captains choice on what they want to specialize in. Both secondaries and AA can be specialized in simultaneously, but captains can also opt for a standard "survival build".

Consumables

République can equip the following consumables:

Captains should opt for the premium versions of the consumables if they have the credits to do so.

Camouflage

Type 1, 2, or 5 camouflage can be equipped for credits; Types 1 or 5 are recommended at a minimum to reduce detectibility range.

Players who wish to spend doubloons can equip République 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.
