Key Features

  • Survivability: With a hit point pool of 20,500 hp and armor ranging from 10-20 mm, it can withstand significant damage.
  • Main Battery: Equipped with 3x2 127 mm/54 Mle 1948 guns, it has a maximum range of 13.9 km and a quick reload time of 3.5 seconds.
  • Torpedoes: It has 4x3 550 mm torpedo tubes with a 13.5 km range and high alpha damage potential.
  • AA Defence: Strong anti-aircraft capabilities with a mix of long, mid, and short-range weapons.
  • Mobility: A maximum speed of 34 knots and a turning circle radius of 670 m provide good maneuverability.
  • Stealth: Surface detectability of 8.0 km allows for relatively close approaches before being spotted.


  • Utilize Torpedoes Effectively: The Cassard’s torpedoes have very high base damage, speed, and range. Use them to your advantage, especially in ambush scenarios.
  • Engage at Close Range: Due to the special torpedo mechanics and poor main battery ballistics, aim for close-range engagements to maximize damage.
  • Leverage Special Saturation: The special saturation mechanics allow the Cassard to take less damage after a certain threshold. This can be used to outlast opponents in a firefight.
  • Emergency Engine Power: The Emergency Engine Power consumable provides a short-duration, high-speed boost. Use it to escape tight situations or to close the distance when attacking.
  • Avoid Long-Range Gunfights: The poor ballistics of the main battery make long-range engagements less effective. Focus on getting closer to your targets.
  • Be Mindful of Consumables: The lack of a Smoke Generator consumable means you need to be extra cautious. Plan your attacks and retreats around the availability of your Emergency Engine Power.
