ST: Bayard, Siroco, Balance Changes World of Warships

ST: Bayard and Siroco Balance Changes

Tier V French Premium Destroyer "Siroco"
  • Detectability range by air is lowered from 3.36 km to 2.7 km;
Main Battery Reload Booster and Engine Boost consumables are changed place. Now, Siroco's consumables are arranged in the same order as the researchable French destroyers.

Tier VIII French Premium Cruiser "Bayard"
  • Increased fore and aft end plating from 13 to 16 mm;
  • Firing Range of the main battery was reduced from 17.4 to 16.4 km.
Due to the successful combination of combat characteristics, Bayard showed good combat effectiveness and was a very hard-to-hit target for enemy ships. Her reduced range will move the cruiser closer to the enemy and make combat actions against Bayard more effective.

The increase in the plating's thickness will allow her to bounce the shells from guns of up to 220 mm caliber. This change will be especially noticeable at medium and close ranges.
