Alright, number two of the "non-autoloading conventional" French meds. The AMX-30 1st Prototype.

 

Well, it's the French Leopard PT A isn't it?

 

Something that bothers me though:

Block Quote

 It will be unlocked from AMX-13/90.

 

Yeah? It will be? The two exact opposites of eachother follow eachother in a tank line?

And to add: I thought the point of this was to give France some more mid-tier meds. Right now France has three meds, Tier 3, Tier 9 and Tier 10.

 

What do we think? Do we hope it's subject to change?

We're getting some lowtier tanks, according to sources. But, only up to tier 5-6 apparently.

Although I have no real idea what tanks there will be, I'm willing to put money on S35

If they fix the issues with Sa35 penetration S35 can be a really nice tier 3, something between protection of matilda, mobility of average medium and fast pew pew high pen gun.

 

I wonder how much they will nerf AMX Proto, as it is now it makes both PTA and Type 61 completely useless. I guess DPM will get an axe too at least 2,3, maybe even more.

Which tier would the S35 be? I think if it was like the Pz. S35 as a tier 3 tank it'd be nice.

Oh, and it seems they have indeed nerfed the AMX 30 Proto, but buffed the 30 B:

If it gets gun upgrades, it's possible it would be tier 4. If it gets gun AND mobility upgrades, then definitely.

Still the AMX-30 PT looks like it will render the Leopard PTA useless. How about buffing the Leopard PTA's gun depression to its historical value of -9 degrees at least?

Great call. GD sort of kills the PT A sometimes.

True, PTA could use some love.

Would be happy either way, but if they actually would make it tier 3 it would be loads of fun.

ON FTR WG say they not sure where AMX 30B line will start.

I bet there  a gazzillion players like me with 100k+ EXP on 1390 who are not gonna be best pleased if WG trolls us and start it from AMX 100.  I have a tickle at the back of my head that says they will.

I think i will play other tanks till test server goes up and i can see exactly what where and how much!!

Just for posterity, I'll add that the tank is indeed tier 3 and almost identical to Pz S35 premium.

 - it’s not yet clear where the AMX-30 “microbranch” will start from

http://ftr.wot-news.com/2015/02/20/20-2-2015/

 

 I have an idea.

 

ARL44 - AMX M4/45 - AMX M4/48 - AMX 30 proto - AMX 30B

     \___- Somua SM - AMX 50-100 - AMX 50-120 - AMX 50B

 

What do you guys think?

I don't think they'll do that. Since it's LT -> MT -> HT, I guess going back from HT to MT is a stupid idea...

USA autoloader line says hi. LT>MT>LT>MT>HT :sceptic:

 

In all seriousness though, placing the hightier tanks on the light line and the rest on the heavy line probably makes the most sense for progression. We don't want to go from a tier 5 medium to a tier 5/6 scout either.

'Mericans are weird. And yet, the M7 is a misplaced medium anyway if you ask me. Felt more like a light tank.

Or does the Crusader feel like a medium? IDK, very weird placement indeed.

Pretty sure it will come from the AMX-90 as planned before.

 

And it better would as I have 200k EXP on it just to unlock the AMX-30 PT.

Agreed, 125k on my 13/90 and pushing towards the probable requirements.  Sure, already have a Leo, FV4202 and STB, but I'd like the AMX30 aswell.
