So I've been watching this new update 0.7.4 video and i'm wondering what this French Char C2 is doing in it.

It's the french TD trailer...
It's because out of the blue WG decided a tank mouting a howitzer is meant to destroy enemy armour since the turret doesn't rotate 360º

They don't mount howitzers. And were specifically meant to engage enemy tanks...

T-18, M-82, M8A1 and T-40 all mount what?

Most of those weren't TD's, but Assault guns. They nearly all carried M1A1 75mm Pack Howitzers, of course the T-40 had to show off and get a 105mm.

those at least have the hulls of a TD with the exception of the M8A1. and can mount high velocity guns as well... And I believe you meant T-82, there's no M-82...
This is a pre-war french heavy tank mounting a howitzwer... I think there can hardly be any link to the specific role of tank killing... I just think WG doesn't want to add "funnies" to the game like a heavy with a partially rotating turret, obviously at the expense of historical accuracy...
But let's not derail the thread...

Yeah T82...
T18: M3 Stuart light tank hull
T82: M5 Stuart light tank hull
M8A1: M5 Stuart light tank hull
T40: M3 lee gull

I think the OP meant why is the tank in the trailer if it's not in the tech tree.
