Anyone got the Gascogne yet? How is it? I've only read and watched some of the reviews so far but am still on the fence with regards to purchasing it.

380mm is kinda lack lustre at tier 8 and you only have 8 with rather  questionable armour and turret layout. My take is that it will take a lot of hairpulling to make it work , maybe too tiresome for daily grinding ...

Ok I thought it would have been Jean Bart  but I guess This does make it unique as a premium game Play wise. Much Like a bigger Graf Spee.

Gascan is great at cooking baguette when on fire tho.

On a serious note: If you kind of wants speedy BB or for collections then go ahead, I think Gascan trade off too much.

Get others T8 BBs

Basically a Richelieu with worse turret arrangement but more reasonable placement of its secondaries.

If you need something to train your French commanders, I'd say Dunkerque is a cheaper (and maybe a better) option.

It does have it's speed, but it's other attributes don't quite measure up against other same tiered opponents.

As people have mentioned, there are better premium BB's available.....

Yeah I already have the Dunkerque. I will pass on Gascogne.
