Vergilius Powergaming Evaluation:
An Auxiliary similar to the Chitose. Two seaplane detachments, though with slightly different stats than the Japanese version. I’ve never been particularly impressed with the Chitose, though some use it to offer better placement chances to a Japanese air swarm. Theoretically, that is now a possibility with France as well. Within the TP deck, their Late 298 can be positioned for an air swarm, and they could always use their land base to bring a lot of cheap bombers. The Commandant Teste has slightly better stats than the Chitose, and thus is slightly more expensive, but is a solid addition to the French navy. It may or may not be useful for more typical power gamers, and may see a larger role in specific scenarios or among historical players. Overall grade: B.
