Build Notes

Attain the highest speed currently possible with battleships! With engine boost active, Richelieu should be able to reach up to 39,7 knots, allowing her to keep up with basically any ship in the game. Even without engine boost, her speed will be 36,8 knots, which means only certain destroyers will be able to outrun her. This build also works with Gascogne.

Richelieu

One of the most successful and well-balanced "new generation" battleships in the world. The ship was equipped with 380 mm guns, had a high speed, strong armor and very good torpedo protection. The disadvantages of concentrating the ship's main guns on the bow were compensated by the favorable turret traverse angles.
