Sail the seas with the most famous battleships of France in World of Warships
Vive la France! Everyone knows France for its baguette and red wine, but also for its diversified and beautiful landscape and cities. Normandy, Bretagne, Alsace or the town of Lyon are famous all around the world.
World of Warships gives you a unique opportunity to re-visit what France produced as the most spectacular, powerful, breathtaking innovations in the naval engineering field. The French Battleships are now joining the game with Normandie, Bretagne, Alsace or Lyon, as well as Richelieu and Republique. Not only are these battleships among the most beautiful ever created and will enlighten your visual experience of the game, but if you think warships are slow or lack action, then you will revise your judgement. Take Normandie, (a tier VI warship) all the main battery turrets have 4 guns, with Lyon (tier VII) holding the absolute record in her 4×4 configuration. 16 canons ready to unleash their wrath on their opponents. And they are the fastest ships of their class.
Each ship has been meticulously recreated from blueprints after weeks of research. The developers spent many hours in the archives provided by Service historique de la Défense (Vincennes, Châtellerault) and Musee National de la Marine (Paris) to get access to photos and blueprints.
Sergey Gornostaev Senior Museums and Militaria Relations Specialist said, “we already knew from the history of French armaments and military vehicles that French war machines were quite unique in design. It was awesome to find that the French military love their heritage and are proud of it. We found special sets of references already prepared for scale modelers – this was a first for us in any archives we visited!”
Each model needed several months of works to be recreated. Et Voilà!
Everyone can now enjoy the best of France from his PC and understand why France was one of the most dangerous naval nation in the world.
