Read the rulebook, plan for all contingencies, and…read the rulebook again.

Got a chance to play this for the first time today. In the game was the French battleship, the Jean Bart. The model clearly has a stern turret, but the card does not, so we played as if it did not have one.

Any reason why the Jean Bart has a turret on the model but not on the card?

There is a bit in one of the manuals that basically says"
Art work is not to be confused with the actual models."

There's a stern turret on the model and a stern turret on the illustration of the card for the Jean Bart. It's the stats on the card that says it doesn't have one. Sorry to not make that clear in the OP.

Seems like it might be a stats misprint on the card. But if the stats are correct...game on.

As mentioned, "rules trump art".

On the other hand, the French Fleet Box contains the class vessel, the Paris, which definitely does have a rear turret.

Cheers!

Or maybe she was sent into conflict incomplete, much like her real-world WWII counterpart?
