She's Great!
Trรจs bien et amusant.
The Guns: 4 x 3 152mm, fast reload, and good range, COF seemed better than 5%, I was getting a fire on every salvo, shell velocity was also good.
Turret Traverse: About average for 152's.
AA: Is great, Testing new ships always has the burden of being focus fired and the No1 target for CV's, but Bayard held her own with DFAA, not Minotaur standards, but she can zap those critters.
Manoeuvrability: I prefer to use PM2, but she still manoeuvred like Torvil and Dean on  ice. 
Speed: I was zooming past some DD's, yep! she is fast at around 40kts kitted out.
Concealment: One of my favourite things about this ship, Got her down to 9.6km sea detectability, kitted out, great stealth.
Torpedoes: Just below your stealth capability, but can catch those BB's by surprise and then go dark, Love em!.
Overall: I had fun playing Bayard, that's why i gave her 8/10 should really be 9/10. She will be one of my ships of choice when playing divs with my little brother, I think you guys will like, if not love this boat.
Would I buy Siroco: Hell Yeh! She can be won in containers as a combat mission during French Arc Event. Her value is 11000 doubloons, which is about £34 UK, Without a second thought (I can only manage 1 at a time) I would buy her if you can't win her.
