The Richelieu is one of the world's most powerful battleships,but the Richelieu had her weak points, The reason I dont like the Richelieu is because of the layout of her main guns.

While it had advantages such as saving weight and enabling her to fire all her main armament from the foward position while closing on enemy ships, it was also a big disadvantage in the fact that one well placed round could take all her main armament.
