Dafuq is with that tank? I have played several games with it and still cant get used to it! It's not a scout because it too slow and for ppl who think it's a brawler here is the proof of opposite!First a pz38t kills 2 out of 3 crewman with 0hp hit and then right after arty kills commander! I have played around 4k battles and this sh*t never happend to me once! HE shells deal too much crew damage.

Does it use the same Canon as B1?
I found it hard for myself to play with lowtier french tanks, too.
You'll get used to it.
Buy the Crew upgrade to 75% if its still lower, you will notice it.
Also the Canon should have a high fire rate - use that and play peek-a-boo with french low tier tanks.
You'll often get bounced on this tank so you should play it defensively and use the high ROF.

All low tier french are pretty bad. A lot of armour for their tier, but really bad guns. Against higher tiers, their armour is useless and their weapons are utterly useless.

Skip them with free xp or grind through it. The AMX12 is slightly better but the AMX13 75 makes the grind worth it. I completely forgot about the AMX40.

Ye it's a painful grind. Dunno why it's called a light tank (getting a nasty matchmaking), as it actually plays like a heavy.

I would not say it has a high rate of fire,as a matter of fact 47mm reloads slower than 57mm zis for t-50, t-28 etc.....
And my concern is not about gun but how could this happen at all? 1 shot from tier lower and 2 crewman dead?

I had also much difficulties with my AMX40. But when I got the AMX 12t it was all worth it (owh yes, there are some people who are going to complain about the AMX12t). I find this tree very challanging to master.

The AMX 12t is indeed a soothing balm after the 40 but it's 0 degrees of gun depression means I'm keeping it after getting the AMX 75 only for the free tier V replacement with 7.5 (going on past experience with the KV split). Also I may get more for selling it as tier VI rather than as tier V :Smile_blinky:

The AMX 40 was the worst grind in this game thus far for me

How the hell do you get 50 km/h out of this thing? Drive it off a cliff?

Just got my 12t after 3 days of solid AMX40 grind.

I like to think my crew burnt it in a great big bonfire, just to make sure it was really gone.

As my friends say it in Hungary "Jól zsírozott szakadékban". Something like "Well oiled cliff" or something like that

Google Translate says "Well-greased ravine" :Smile_veryhappy: Same lol
AMX 40 reminds me T1 HT. People hate it, they only drive it to get T29 (or AMX 12t in this case). It's pretty invulnerable against low-tier lights, though.

You can go with the M4A3E2 if you don't want the T1 Heavy :D

Well, I do like T1 HT. However, compared to BDR, it's... yeah...
