Ignore the HP, most ships have about 2x to 4x of what their WoWs counterparts have (Mahan has 70k in that game). Because damage mitigation such as angling & saturation don't exist there.

Main guns are exactly the same as those on Alsace/Bourgogne, 380mm quads.

The Omega Graf Spee should get Mosscow treatment.

16 guns in T10 is not new. (C. Columbus)

So 4 x 4 - 380 mm is ok. (Just don't expect doing a lot of damage in a BB on BB action cuz it's HE and not SAP. DE will be a necessity for this ship caliber.)

Variant will be 4 x 3 406 mm.

As long as it has that french roast flavor (long range guns and engine boost in BB), she might be ok to play. Not fun, but ok to play.

MBRB on a 380 mm = ????
MBRB on a 406 mm =No. Too imba.

 

Republique could also have a variant.

2 x 3 - 451 mm.

 

BTW, Wat is Omega Graf Spee?

Specs.

So basically....

  1. Pinch Alsace aft backwards
  2. Slap another quad on it
  3. ????
  4. Profit!

It doesn't mention the AA though.

Republique. Someone named it that on a poll.

Ah.

Thanks.

 

Since that answers my question, No, Republique should not have the Moose-cow treatment.

Instead it should be a tech tree split from T8 - T10 (or T6 - T10)

Main Line will be (AX and ABX configuration)
Branch line will be (AB and ABC configuration)

As for gimmicks, one will have Engine Boost, while the other will have MBRB.
I know, I know, putting MBRB on a BB may be a bad idea and could break the game balance, but it's just a thought. Not a suggestion.

 

Super Alsace should be coal ship.

Can I have 3x4 406 Alsace/Repub before that please?

That's a viable Republique replacement. I mean Rrepublique is a silly concept. It might work if it had thicker armor or more accurate guns, but nope.

And 3x3 406 Alsace afterward...

But 3x4 406 is more important.

Project 4 (large) - ABC configuration
Project C No. 2 - ABX configuration

Both 406 mm guns.

Note: Project 4 is Richelieu class with 9 - 380 mm with ABC configuration.
Make a larger version of it and you have an Alsace that can accommodate 3 quad 380 mm or 3 triple 406 mm in ABC configuration.
(At this point the word "historical" is already off the table. WG already have done it.)

The hull is big enough to accommodate those guns. So, hmm :fish_book:

I like.

 

 

Another variant is 2 x 3 451 mm.

Think of it as Gascogne and Champaign but grande sized.
Republique is 2 quad 431 mm while her variant will carry 2 triple 451 mm guns.

And the variant does not stop there. AB and AX configuration is also on the table.
