With France likely to get 48% Fire chance on HE and a re-load of between 20 to 24 sec (approx 24 salvo's a minute) on her Main Guns depending on your set up. Is she going to be another Conqueror or french pretender.

France's fires per minute is relatively poor.  The Conqueror has a 63% fire chance on it's 8 gun option, compared to France's 48%, plus it does 30% more damage per shell.  Not to mention the France has standard 1/6 HE pen and not the 1/4 pen that the RN BB's get.

AP will be the shell of choice for the France in the vast majority of situations.

Biggest issue with that ship is its overall 32mm covering... It had many attributes of Brawling but that gimped armor will be a big issue. The only way I can see this ship working is as a flanking ship that sneaks on something broadside and hopes to finish it off quickly.
