Thoughts on the French Navy ship Jean Bart?


Yet another weird product of the Washington Naval Treaty, alongside the British Nelson-class battleships, and the German Deutschland pocket battleships, which was kinda of a mix of both: Concentrate all your armament in two main turrets, like the Germans, but put all those turrets forward of the bridge, like the British, all to save as much weight as possible.

The French are never cautious about innovation.
