Today, we’re focusing on the French Tier IX Premium battleship, Jean Bart. Built under the 1935 shipbuilding program, this Richelieu-class battleship was commissioned after World War II. The battleship resisted the Allied landings near Casablanca in 1942, and was badly damaged by airstrikes and artillery fire. The ship was finally completed after the war. She received the most advanced AA artillery available for her time, which significantly enhanced her AA defenses.
