It does not increase damage if you can already pen that armor without IFHE.

As far as IFHE, yes on Alsace, no on Republique. This is not a suggestion thread BTW . (Edit as of 4/3: I bought Republique about a week ago after trying her on test server and I was wrong. Your mileage may vary depending on your playstyle and skill level. I free-XPed out of her after four games, which is very rare for me.

Glimpse behind the scenes at the new battleship line! If completed, she would have been the first ship in the world to carry its main armament in Quadruple-gun turrets. Slow in every way.

TL;DR: On Alsace, putting 4 points into IFHE is a drastic improvement to secondary effectiveness with only a minor opportunity cost (since EM is comparatively less important than it is for Republique.)

Alsace can brawl like a champ (although you're not as tanky as Germans and have to be VERY mindful of your angles, and you want to stay a bit farther back, closer to the edge of your secondary range), but she feels like she is much more accurate at longer ranges with her main battery than Germans. She's a bit too squishy for clan battles and such; she's not built to take focus fire even though she's tougher than you'd expect when angled well. Her disadvantages included weak torpedo protection.
