Ok, but next time try get a voice actor who knows how to pronouce foreign words, or at least get to use "the pope trick" and write it down for them phonetically. *facepalm*

I really laughed my ass about the "Fauch" part. :D

I would say Foch is better than JT. The same cardboard back, sides, but the front can bounce and the gun is as amazing as JT's gun. But the speed, the bloody speed, two times faster than JT...

Who, the hell, would use the 105 mm on S-35 CA, when it has the great 17 pounder Gan Mk.II gun?

That gun is comparable with Stug's gun, has even greater penetration and has much more shells in ammo rack, so no problems with ammo capacity unlike Stug.

In addition, this TD has GREAT view range of 400 m, so you NEED accuracy for long range sniping.

Simply the 105 mm gun is just wasting of S-35 CA's great potential.

The 105 mm gun is similar to the ex KV 107 mm Zis 6 gun ( which was clearly OP for its tier ).
S-35 CA can defeat Jagdpanzer IV , M36 , M18 in one vs one fight with no problem!
Plus it is great for city fights cuz only exposed part of a vehicle is gun when you hiding behing corners.

Agreed.
JT is clearly the weakest tier 9 TD :Smile-angry: .

Yeah with armor and HP of KV-2 it could make sense.

Go and try to elite this TD and you will see.

Every guy who owned the game with S-35 CA, had the 17 pounder, I have never seen one with 105 mm and doing above average.

EDITED:
This gun has bad accuracy so you have to fight in <300 m dinstance. This often means almost close range fights. So one bounce or miss in 1v1 fight and you are smashed while reloading, plus you have open top, so any standing still time because of aiming is great arty danger.

"Not only is this TD one of the most accurate tier nine tank, it also has one of the most accurate tanks in the whole game."

You heard it here folks! Not only is it accurate, but it has accurate tanks as well!
I would be overjoyed if I could make sense of it!

bad video, ,you should fire the translator ,a) no situation awareness (he speaks about the "incoming" patch 7.4. ,its already live,comes like a slap in the face that we re not just the last,but also that you havent spent any effort)
b) he should learn to spell german names,its not panzerdzheger,but panzer-jager >read>pancer-jeger,also its not HEITZER , the HETZER most definately isnt a men who is maintaining fires
c)APCR on the 10,5cm , its not APCR but HEAT

Yes im pretty sure those tanks make gameplay seem fantastic if you lack recoil while shooting.
Can you please remake this movie with the recoil shown like every other player has and let us see those "perfect" variables on a player's side of view?

Why in the hell you would want to make these sort of movies without recoil is beyond my imagination, but the one with the actual idea should be headshotted... unless you are doing it to hide it being a tree full of *peep* ?

Wait. Looking at the video, it looks like it's a line of L/100 Panthers. :Smile_confused:

Good front, rubbish sides, gun longer than a limo, high rate of fire, perfect accuracy and nice speed.
Only they are even small targets and have a good damage, unlike my Panther.

Shame to see the tier 4 was made to force premium ammo.

It's also not a Panzer-"Mick"-Jagger, "Mick Jagger"-Jagged-Panther or a Heitzer.
