French T9 BB vs T10 USN cruiser, that’s a bit like comparing apples with oranges. High tier USN cruisers vs French BB’s are really quite different.

 

One question would be, do you have other French BB’s, USN cruisers or both? Premiums are good captain trainers for tech tree ships of the same nation and ship type.

 

Personal I prefer Alsace or Richelieu over JB, although JB is a bit like a larger Richelieu. May simply be because I had good battles in Alsace and Richelieu, not so much in JB.

 

I heard people say that T10 Desmoines is better than Salem, but I have USN tech-tree cruisers only up to T9, so cannot comment. Apparently, Salem has weaker AA, shorter range and shorter duration radar, compared to Desmoines.

 

Out of the two, definitely like the Salem more. Lave the fast firing 203’s, fairly reliable armour for a cruiser and good manoeuvrability. Salem has very good repair party. That does not mean you will like Salem better, too.

Salem lack of short range AA (0.1-1km) but I think it is no big deal. Compare with DM, Salem have buff repair party but nerf radar range.

Said it before, saying again...

"Alaska all the way":Smile_trollface:

And then you can save up the coal for Yoshino which will no doubt be a fun and more useful ship(anything similar to Zao is fun and useful)

just bought JB. i love her. her AP is so satisfying. it punch through cruiser armor like hot knife through butter. also works great against Battleship. my only grief on her is her 32mm armor plating. they ate HE spam like no tomorow. but her gameplay is really rewarding.

Salem.

The armor is slightly better than Des Moines.

Amazing heal !!!!!! +++++++++++++++++++++

The AA is slightly weaker than Des Moines, but can't distinguish the performance at all in real play. Both have great AA especially when defensive fire consumable activated.

The radar looks narrow on the paper. In fact, nobody will use radar in open water. You use it on the island at cap point or when assisting your lemmings train when pushing forward.

The best recommended commander for her is Alexander Ovechkin with Survivability Expert. The heal is even more tremendous.

Salem is not a good credit maker. Her camouflage did not give -50% cost reduce.

Halsey suit Des Moines better rather than to Salem.

Jean Bart.... Errr.... Can't say much. I don't really into BB game play although I do collecting BBs for their beautiful appearance.
