Marceau Tier X French Premium Destroyer Released for 236,000 Coal

Marceau

French Destroyer  FLAGX Marceau 1940

A variant of the 3,000-ton reconnaissance project developed between 1939 and 1940, armed with post-World War II weapons, including a multi-purpose main battery.
Flag X Marceau Flag
“All I ask is to let me command the vanguard when things get really hot” these were the words François Séverin Marceau said to his friend General Kléber shortly before the Battle of Le Mans.

Main Characteristics of Marceau
Marceau is a design variant of a "3,000-ton scout ship" developed in France at the beginning of World War II. She carries dual-purpose guns of a post-war design. In World of Warships, she boasts a high speed and rapid-firing artillery, as well as good AA defenses.
Key Features:
* Eight 127 mm guns in four turrets with a reload time of 3.5 seconds and a 180-degree traverse time of just 6 seconds
* Four triple-tube 550 mm torpedo launchers. The launchers are notable for having wide aiming angles, but her torpedoes are not as powerful as the torpedoes of some other Tier X destroyers
* Her standard top speed of 44 knots can be increased by 20% with the Engine Boost consumable activated
* Decent AA defences for her type can be further reinforced with the Defensive AA Fire consumable, which is available in a separate slot
* Marceau is not equipped with a Smoke Generator. Her detectability also leaves much to be desired—8.6 km with her permanent camouflage (without upgrades and Commander skills taken into account)
* The permanent camouflage reduces the ship's post-battle service cost by 50%, increases the amount of credits she earns per battle by 20%, and adds a 100% XP bonus per battle
