I agree, very cool video. It also shows that "France is not just about frog’s legs, snails, cheese and wine."   :Smile_blinky:
Which French tank do you like most?

The Char B1. Miles ahead. Especially the B1 Ter (which I still hope to be a replacement for the current B1 to stop whining).

However, it has to be said I think the in-game B1 is miles ahead of any other tank when it comes to fun.

I loved the old tier 6 amx 1375, it was by far the most fun French tank I ever played, or as it seemed. The amx 50 100 would also be on the top tanks list, it's simply a beast.   :Smile_popcorn1:

Funny how the french tanks of WWII are looked down upon whilst the chinese tanks are praised in their video.
Germany had no better tanks than France when they attacked. Mostly Panzer I and II and less Panzer III with 37mm guns! French tanks really outclassed them but were too far spread and not numerous enough because of labour dispute and stuff going on there (ok, that's mentioned in the vid). Don't compare a Panzer IV Ausf. F1 with a R35. You have to compare it to a Panzer I or II, which were even less armed and armoured.
China, on the other hand, never had any tanks that were up to date, did they?! They got good tanks, true. But they all were of earlier generation and HAD to be "modified" to stand a minimum chance in battle against modern rivals.
(besides, I never read anything saying China was building good tanks, very unlike France does - at least after the war)
