As one of six light cruisers of the La Galissonnière class, Montcalm stood as the most modern example of her ship type in the French Navy at the onset of World War II. In the initial months of the war, she operated in the North Atlantic and took part in the Norwegian campaign. In 1943, the ship underwent modernization in the U.S.A. that enhanced her air defenses and radio equipment. In June 1944, Montcalm covered the Allied landings in Normandy in the Omaha sector. Later in the war, the cruiser participated in the liberation of Southern France.

Key Features

  • Armed with nine 152mm guns with good ballistics, long range, and high damage per minute for her tier.
  • Light torpedo armament, with only two tubes per side, effective in special situations.
  • Consumables include the Main Battery Reload Booster, enhancing her already lethal main battery.
  • Access to Hydroacoustic Search or Defensive AA Fire consumables in one slot.
  • Relatively low base speed compared to most French cruisers.
  • No access to Engine Boost consumable.


  • Long-range play is recommended due to her low speed and overall low survivability.

  • At close range, be cautious of enemy battleships and cruisers.
  • Utilize island cover for protection.
  • Montcalm can also be effective when positioned behind friendly destroyers, using their smoke screens to block enemy vision.
