Whats your thoughts on the Bismarck and Jean Bart match up?
That's a tough one, primarily because of how muddled the history of the French ships was (new/incomplete boats, Vichy/Free French, gun issues.) Richelieu was sort of complete at the start of the war, Jean Bart wasn't. Assuming a completed boat of the class one should probably still factor in teething troubles: the Richelieu's guns did worse damage to themselves than their targets because of improper propellant/shell design issues.
The Richelieu was tough enough though. It took some 15" hits with no significant damage. Jean Bart also took some hits from the 16" battery of South Dakota class BB, but was still in action. These French BB's were not as vulnerable as the Hood.
From what I gather the French ship's gunnery was a mess because the shells and propellant had not been properly tested, plus the close mounting of the 4-gun turrets produced a "wake effect" that created "excessive dispersion."
So in a fighting scenario I would expect it to go something like this:
At long range, where the Bismarck would be vulnerable to rounds plunging through her deck, the French ship wouldn't be able to hit anything without a lot of luck. The Bismarck on the other hand would be able to find the range and pound away. However, this fire likely would only cause non-crippling damage.
As the range closed, the Richelieu/Jean Bart would finally be able to score some hits, but would be firing against the disproportionately thick belt armour of the Bismarck.
Both would be bloodied, but still standing. To break the tie comes down to discipline and ability to adapt, favoring the Bismarck.
