Player Opinion

Performance

Turenne plays and handles very similarly to her Tier III contemporaries, Nassau and Kawachi. Like most other low tier battleships, Turenne travels at a slow pace, requiring captains to plan their moves ahead of time. Additionally, the ship boasts a thick main and upper armor belt that can easily protect against enemy fire with the proper angle.

Like Nassau and Kawachi, Turenne carries her primary guns in a hexagonal arrangement. While this prevents all guns from being fired simultaneously, it allows for captains to maintain firepower on both sides of the ship. The wide firing angles of the rear turrets allow captains to make use of a majority of the ship’s firepower while keeping a narrow profile towards the enemy. However, captains should make note of their shell and target selection prior to firing. Turenne’s armor piercing shells have a low initial velocity and often struggle to deal effective damage against distant ships. Instead, captains may find high explosive shells to be more effective, especially at heavily angled or far-away targets.

While Turenne's armor is not the thickest at her tier, it can protect the ship’s citadel from enemy fire, given the proper angle. The extended main belt and large upper belt also limit the areas on the ship that are vulnerable to enemy high explosive shells. Captains should make use of the ship’s armor, wide firing angles, and small turning circle to quickly fire before angling the ship against returning shells.

In short, Turenne is very similar to other Tier III battleships in numerous ways. Like other dreadnoughts, she trades speed for better armor and bigger guns. However, captains may often find themselves switching shell types or targets due to the low penetration of the armor piercing shells.

Pros:

  • The ship's citadel is located below the waterline and is well protected by the armor belt.
  • The side mounted turrets have wide firing angles, allowing for the majority of the ship's firepower to be used while maintaining a narrow profile.
  • Small turning circle allows the ship to quickly maneuver away from torpedoes or enemy fire.

Cons:

  • Armor piercing shells have a slow initial velocity and often struggle to damage battleships or cruisers at a distance.
  • Slow turret traverse prevents captains from firing their guns while turning.
  • Carries few anti-aircraft guns, leaving the ship vulnerable to carrier strikes.

Research

Availability of researchable upgrades for Turenne is as follows:

  • Hull: Upgrade to Hull (B) for an improved rudder shift time and additional hit points. Research of this module unlocks progression to Courbet.
  • Gun Fire Control System: Upgrade to PCA n° 3 Mle 2 for an extra 10% range on the main battery.
  • Propulsion: Upgrade to the 26,000 hp engine to increase the ship's top speed by 1.2 knots.
Captains should first research Hull (B) before researching the Gun Fire Control System and Propulsion upgrades.

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

The recommended upgrades for Turenne are as follows:

Slot 1 provides several options for captains. Main Armaments Modification 1 is recommended to provide additional survivability to the main battery, but players who desire to specialize in the secondary armament should choose Auxiliary Armaments Modification 1.

Commander Skills

Key skills for Turenne commanders include Expert Marksman at Level 2, Superintendent at Level 3, and Fire Prevention at Level 4. Basics of Survivability can also be taken to reduce the time required to extinguish fires. Concealment Expert is also recommended to reduce the ship's detection range.

Consumables

Turenne can equip the following consumables:

Premium versions of these consumables are recommended to decrease their cooldown timers.

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.

Signals

Turenne captains should mount signal flags that improve the ship's survivability. November Foxtrot (-5% reload time on all consumables.) and India Delta (+20% to the amount of HP recovered when the Repair Party consumable is used.) flags can be mounted to improve the effectiveness of the ship's consumables. India Yankee (-20% to fire duration.) flags are recommended to reduce the time needed to extinguish fires. Captains may also find Sierra Mike (+5% to the ship's maximum speed.) flags useful to increase the ship's top speed. Lastly, economic and special signal flags can be taken to improve the ship's economic gains per battle.
