It's not a great tank but it's not that terrible. Yes it's slow. Yes, the first and second guns have no pen at all. And yes, everybody with some experience will load premium, when shooting you.

 

On the other hand you are the king of bounce. The 75mm gun with 74mm penetration is kind of OK on that tier. Get yourself a camo net and some binocs. So you can go snipping when low tier.

the m3 lee is a powerful machine of you know how to use it. goodness sake i got 8 kill in it and a couple of pasccucis. it has 20 rof, same as the e 25.

on to discussion. i never touched the amx 40 but seems that their ret is easy to pen. i think since the tieger 1 can fit a massive gun, do the same to the amx 40. give the long french 75mm so that with 100pen at least it can hurt ;)

So now it will be slow, undergunned AND underarmored :trollface:

It's a real rubber ducky:

It bounces!

It's yellow! (After a bit of modding)

It floats! (Okay... maybe not really)

It's completely useless as a tank!

 

You heard it everyone, total proof that the AMX 40 is, indeed, an oversized rubber duck designed by the French to confuse the enemy!

Anyone who says otherwise is a French conspirator.

AMX40 is much better. I played it a while ago, and WHEN i grinded it around 3 years ago it was much more horrible than it is atm.

The AMX40 would be very very good indeed if tier 4 players had tier 9 skill - but with the ultra-fast roflstomp games that's tier 4, it's pretty bad. The problem is getting anywhere in time. If you DO get there in time, you will own everything - but that only happens once in five games. So a good tank, but bad players on both teams make it suck.

Biggest problem is its speed.

This piece of **** is so slow that you sometimes don't even shoot anyone and get 60xp..

Just started on the ELC. I think I enjoyed "The Duck" more.

I think this is the best summary of the tank I've seen so far.

I see 2 options for having this this tank worth the playing:

 

1) They add a good damage and penetration gun in the research tree

 

2) They remove this tank from Tier IV and pass it to Tier III.

It's scheduled to receive a different top turret with a bigger gun. Don't ask when, but it's being worked on.

Better not be another FCM F1 secondary turret. That ruined the G1R that could've been.

Yeah, played it. Even though I finished that grind on x5 XP, it was painfull. Can't imagine what it is like to you. I mean, B1 and DW are great tanks compared to 'duck'.

Slow, bad gun, no prefferd MM(that would probably help a lot). Like everyone say, it has good armor, but that's about it. And it becomes irrelavent agains anything with 100+ pen

Played it again, the biggest problem is again the non-existent skill of tier 4 players. Games on the low tiers are too fast for a tank this slow. Noobs yolo and die, you will not get there in time to save them.

The second big problem is the gun, the accuracy is just horrendous (muchy worse than what appears on the stats), HEAT lacks penetration and shell velocity is a joke. Almost impossible to hit a moving target.

 

However, when you do get into a close-range fight, you are strong. Everything that's not tier 6 heavy will be easily challenged, even KV-1 tomatoes.

This is one of the worst grinds in the game, but that's more due to players than the tank. It's the same as with Matilda or KV-1; they are great on paper, but just cannot

react to the yolo rush/roflstomp game pace you get on low tiers. For this reason, I hope I'll never have to play the AMX 40 again, unless they buff it.
