For some reason the best gun in practice does not meet it's stats. It is the most inaccurate gun in the game and if it does actually hit something the shell bounces off even with premium ammo. It is also painfully slow and so easy to kill. It must rank as the worse tank in the game. The end.

I dunno... I liked the way the armour could hold against the Marder ll and FCM 36 Pak 40. But I won't play it again, there are just too many idiots in tier 3 games...

This is my Ace Tanker in the Renault R35 ( rare tank now to find played on-line )

( only 2 other Ace Tanker games , that I could find on you tube )

The R35 was a tank that I had trouble with , mainly that it is very slow , and has 2 awful guns ,
the 25mm with only 400m effective range and 37mm SA38 with 0.48 accuracy -

I recommend the 37mm gun as it is more reliable on open maps
Pros and Cons -
Pros: --
Heavy sloped armour in front - players have to load gold to penetrate you
Good overall armour
Good traverse speed
Excellent gun depression and elevation
Cons:--
Very slow when stock
25 mm Raccourci mle. 1934 gun can't shoot beyond 400m
Howitzers will destroy you

Thing is that we are talking about the stepchild FCM 36 here, and not the R35.

Its armour struggles against anything higher than tier II, and the mobility is non-existent.

The better gun, the SA-38 (as the 25mm cannon simply can't compensate the lack of damage with a higher rate of fire) suffers not only from the aim-time and the slow turret traverse but the lack of accuracy when moving even slightly.

 used the 2nd stock 37mm Gun , the SA38 as it is more reliable at range , unlike the 25mm Gun - and I found I wasn't struggling to hit targets on Province
Pros and Cons =
Pros:
Good armour for its tier
Armour has good slope
Frontal armour immune to most (if not all) auto cannons.
Excellent gun depression (17 degrees!).

Cons:-
Slow, takes a LONG time to get up steep hills.
Poor top signal range.
Poor turret traverse speed.
Poor view range.
Low hit pool.
Performance --
The FCM 36 is more like a miniature heavy tank than it is a light. It is sluggish even when fully upgraded seeing as the Berliet Ricardo engine only adds 14hp. It receives the same gun selection as the H35, and should also mount the 25mm Canon Raccourci mle. 1934 because the 37mm SA38 lacks penetration. The best way too play the FCM 36 is to support the weak spots in your teams line, as most tanks that you will find in those places can't penetrate you. Try and make sure that you won't have too relocate too much BEFORE the game starts. The FCM 36 is not very mobile and has a hard enough time making it to the frontlines.

Province is unfortunately replaced with the hopeless Mittengard...

That aside, I must have really terrible luck with the MatchMaking, as the matches I get into are totally dominated by hard-hitting, fast-moving autocannons, meaning the battle will either be won or hopelessly lost by the time the FCM36 gets into the action.
