Don't raise your hopes too high! But it makes a quick show-up in the video about licensed chinese tanks :

Could it mean a future update with a few extra French tanks? Just hoping it won't be just another premium (in which case they'd better not count on my money).

Nice find. No French non-premium tanks are planned till the end of 2012 though. I hope it is stock on picture, the infamous short 75 known from Amx40 scares me a bit.

It also looks sluggish as hell...I'm already getting an AMX40 v.2 vibe.

Dunno. Theoretically, that should be 40-50 km/h. But in theory AMX 40 was a 50km/h cavalry tank program...

Hope it will come soon, bdr is a good money maker but i prefer low profile medium.
Erf, they will probably destroy the original plan of this tank and make a slighty better AMX 40 anyway...

Supposedly G1R would be able to move like a Sherman, for it's power-to-weight ratio, but it's also a heavier vehicle, so yes, I can totally imagine this turning out to be an AMX 40.2.

i hope not. It might seem weird, but i'd really like to get a standard tank in the french tree. Something very classic and easy to play, Sherman-like. Kind of quiet holidays after having ruined my nerves on all those extra-nerfed demanding AMX & Co high tier tanks  :tongue:

I read about it.
Real name: Char G1R
The chassis and the turret were designed separately. That means the turret will be a turret from ARL (same as the Char G1B [also known as BDR]).
It should be heavy armoured for it's tier and armed with a 7,5cm or 9cm gun and a semi-automatic loader was considered.
It engine shoud do something around 400PS.
(only my Info, don't know what it will be ingame)

If only WG would put a decent engine on the AMX40 (like they did with many other imaginary vehicles and imaginary engines) ... that tank would be much nicer if it had a decent engine, say at 300-350 HP (not unrealistic for pre-WW2 era design), it would offset the lousy gun.

There're two things that can go wrong with it. 1. ARL-3 turret (it's ugly as hell on this tank)
   2. DCA 30 (a 90mm needs a big ugly turret which I'd never want)
As a medium tank in tier 5 a proper gun has a 75mm or 76mm. There are 3 good 75-76mm french guns. 1.75 mm SA49 L48 (108 pen.
    2. 17 pdr AT Gun MK.II (171 pen)
    3. 75 mm SA50 (144 pen)
