Haven't played the duck in a long while, and somehow I feel nostalgic about it. But I don't have a 100%crew to put in it right now... maybe later, I hope :izmena:

So, I just got it as a way to get to the ELC bis, but have found it nearly as good as Matilda. And I just had my best game ever (at least in terms of stats). Mainly luck and that no-one managed to penetrate me (nearly). I'm a noob (<4k battles), and the very battle before (tier VI, I think), I don't think I even penetrated once. Now, it was the other way around: Widepark, tier III-IV battle: we were losing badly, and I was among the buildings to the west, with only one friendly left. Suddenly I realised that no-one seemed able to penetrate my armour (afterwards I realise that there was only two level IV's on each team, which I luckily managed to kill).  I received so many hits that I started lagging, think the graphics were down to about 3fps at one stage as everyone crowded in looking to kill me, so I just picked them off one by one.

 

Just to say, please don't see this as bragging, I'm not very good. But sometimes, you are just too lucky!

 

Hits received 179, penetrations 4. Damage blocked by armour 4,147. Total Damage 2,247, 11 kills, 1518 xp, wn8 52,452. If it had been a heavy I would have completed the final Stug IV mission! I would think that I was 1 vs 10  at one point, will have to watch the replay. http://wotreplays.co...iof_rode-amx_40

AMX40 would be ok if the gun wasnt so awful as well. Plenty of times you just cant pen anything on the enemy team. If you are top tier you get  bounces a plenty but you cant kill anything with that rubbish gun. It is the most painful thing to get past to get the ELC, then the french tanks become a lot more fun and awesome lols. The same is true for sherman on american line - total pants...

Yes, the gun on the AMX 40 is not  a good one it is more like a old pirate gun. You can fire this gun but you are lucky when it is not self exploding in your face . To be shoure that you can hit the taget  follow up 2 thinks 1. beclose and/or 2. cuse a big taget.

has anyone ever tried running it with 105 octane fuel? if so how much has it affected mobility and what kind of speed can you attain on flat terrain?

If HE were working and 47mm wasnt so bad it could be a fun tank a bit like a less armored matilda, i keep it for meme purpose

 

ho! and maybe time to fix the armor inclination bug. the game think the armor have a 60° angle when in reality its even more and count the side armor as unangled

 

fix armor or give good gun adn were good to go

I found that High Explosive can work well - have 1-shotted tier 3 TD's and taken chunks out of other soft-skinned vehicles' health bars with it. Sometimes I spam HE with it just to get some damage. I am also using it to get the first skill on the crew (6th sense / camo) before moving them to an AMX-12t that I bought on discount some time ago. In addition the free experience I have gained doing so will go towards the top gun and tracks on the 12t in order to avoid the stock grind.

First, I admit I am a very average player.

I just visited WoTLabs to update my signature.

To my surprise, the tank I did best in was the Duck (WN8 rating), though I only fought 15 battles to get to the AMX ELC.

I'm going to get the Duck again and give it a second try.
