A whole range of ships in the French Navy were named after Jean Baptiste Colbert (1619–1683), one of the most prominent statesmen in France. The sixth ship to carry the noble gentleman's name was an anti-aircraft cruiser which entered service in 1959.
Wows Gamer Blog wichita Tier X ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท French Premium Light Cruiser Colbert (1959).
Designed and built after World War II, an AA cruiser of a relatively small size but equipped with powerful dual-purpose 127 mm artillery.

Main Characteristics of Colbert.
  • Sixteen 127 mm main battery guns with a very high standard rate of fire. Shell trajectory will let you actively rely on islands as cover when firing;
  • With the Engine Boost consumable activated and a Sierra Mike flag mounted, Colbert can reach speeds of up to 41.4 knots;
  • The specific features of the Repair Party consumable will help the ship stay operational longer. When the consumable is activated, it can restore up to 60% of the casemate damage and up to 50% of damage to the ship's citadel. At the same time, light armor and a small pool of hit points require careful assessment of the situation in battle to not get under a focused enemy fire;
  • Half the cost, as compared to other Tier X ships, of standard (not including camouflage and signals) post-battle service will be 90,000 instead of 180,000 credits.

Reinforcing the priority AA sector occurs in four phases:

 (1) Upon activating the priority AA sector, the AA defences will cause instantaneous damage to   enemy squadrons, expressed as a percentage of their current HP, and try to shoot down as many   aircraft as possible.

 (2) A phase in which the ship's continuous AA damage within the selected sector gradually   increases, during which the efficiency of the opposite sector's AA fire reduces.

 (3) Having reached maximum efficiency, the reinforced AA sector deals damage to its full extent   for a limited period of time.

 (4) AA sector reinforcement is deactivated. To use AA sector reinforcement once again, you have   to wait until the end of the cooldown period, during which the efficiency of the ship’s AA   defences returns to standard values.

Mini Review on Colbert before recent balance changes

It's Raining Fire! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
The Guns: 16 x HE shells are superb, constant fires, prepare to be hated and get bad karma.
Speed: At 33-41 kts she can quickly disengage from a bad situation.
Concealment: Great concealment, Air, Sea and Smoke.
AA Defence: Excellent: on par with Minotaur or not far off.
Would I Purchase Colbert: For Research Points, Yes, Will she ever hit the Premium Shop?. I can't see WG keeping her as a research points ship forever.
Latest: Sub_Octavian proved on stream Colbert was not an OP ship compared to other same tier cruisers but still recently nerfed COF & Reload, but also buffed alpha damage to HE and AP, More testing needed with new balance changes.
