 Dupleix Tier VI French Heavy Cruiser 1932

A heavy cruiser of the Suffren class that differs from other ships in the series by her reinforced armor protection, which utilizes an internal armor belt. In general, she is a typical Washington cruiser with dominating artillery power.

One traditional name given to French Navy warships refers to Marquis Joseph Francois Dupleix, who served as Governor-general of the French East India Company's possessions in India from 1697 until 1763.

Key Features

A typical "Treaty" cruiser, heavy gunnery was favoured over strong protection.
The ship is armed with eight 203 mm main battery guns placed in four turrets, and a torpedo armament comparable to that found aboard the researchable French heavy cruisers. Her main battery's low fire rate is compensated by its long range and turret traverse speed, as well as the availability of the Main Battery Reload Booster consumable.
Dupleix has a sizeable HP pool, but a vulnerable citadel, and mediocre concealment and armour. She is at her finest when engaging in mid- and long-distance gunfights, and her torpedoes can get her out of sticky situations at close range. The ship's good maneuverability and her improved Engine Boost consumable can work in unison to help in quickly changing flanks or swiftly coming to the aid of allied ships.
Her wide range of consumables includes the aforementioned Engine Boost which increases the ship's speed by 15%, a choice between Hydroacoustic Search or Defensive AA Fire, Fighter, and Main Battery Reload Booster.
