Talk about the vehicle's armour. Note the most well-defended and most vulnerable zones, e.g. the ammo magazine. Evaluate the composition of components and assemblies responsible for movement and manoeuvrability. Evaluate the survivability of the primary and secondary armaments separately. Don't forget to mention the size of the crew, which plays an important role in fleet mechanics. Save tips on preserving survivability for the "Usage in battles" section. If necessary, use a graphical template to show the most well-protected or most vulnerable points in the armour.

Usage in battles

Describe the technique of using this ship, the characteristics of her use in a team and tips on strategy. Abstain from writing an entire guide – don't try to provide a single point of view, but give the reader food for thought. Talk about the most dangerous opponents for this vehicle and provide recommendations on fighting them. If necessary, note the specifics of playing with this vehicle in various modes (AB, RB, SB).

Pros and cons

Summarise and briefly evaluate the vehicle in terms of its characteristics and combat effectiveness. Mark its pros and cons in the bulleted list. Try not to use more than 6 points for each of the characteristics. Avoid using categorical definitions such as "bad", "good" and the like - use substitutions with softer forms such as "inadequate" and "effective".





The Le Fantasque series of destroyers were designed to operate in homogeneous formations as an alternative to light cruisers. All ships of this series were launched and commissioned between 1933 and 1936, and were modernized many times over time. Le Triomphant, like its sister ships, actively took part in the events of World War II during the Norwegian operation. After the surrender of France, it was captured by the British and then was used by Free France as part of their maritime forces. It also operated in the Pacific Ocean, escorting convoys from Australia and New Zealand as well as in Vietnam in 1945 to 1946. Serving until 1949, the Le Triomphant met its ultimate demise when it was dismantled and sold for scrap in 1957.
