We will see if we are being used as a cash cow if it comes out as a package

9.10 I think or 10 or whatever WG are calling the next patch. 

 

it is already available on Russian server and premium shop, so it may not be long for european server, and will come before the next patch.

Available from yesterday on the RU servers. Want to bet, that we will get a different offer? :P

Official video at WoT RU (russian language with english subtitles), link to M4A1 Revalorisé at WoT Wiki (EN) and M4A1 Revalorisé at Tankopedia RU

 

 

 

 

Next videos are in russian only without subtitiles:

 

 

 

PROTanki (author of very popular modpack at RU server)

 

 

Pros:

 

  • detection 390 m
  • good penetration with standard ammo (200 mm, HEAT only 250 mm)
  • accuracy 0.345 m/100 m
  • lot of ammo
  • alpha 390

 

Cons:

 

  • slow aiming (2.7 s, but it's not so bad in case of this caliber)
  • slow reloading
  • very weak armor (it's not surprise - Revalorisé is based on M4)
  • MM VIII - X
  • large in size
  • weak camo
  • poor mobility (13 hp/t only, slow acceleration and going uphill slowly, but traversing speed is OK)
  • high terrain resistance (especially at soft)
  • max speed only 40 km/h

 

 

Conclusion: He likes this tank. Characteristics of this tank are NOT as medium tank but as TD with turret. Be careful: elevation +15° and depression -7° could be not always enough.

 

 

Jove (Virtus.Pro)

 

 

Pros and cons as in previous video but he is really very happy that this tank has very high alpha damage and possibility to deal a lot of damage to enemies.

It is nice to get another premium Medium tank in french tree, but I do not understand well why. I will certainly get it, but there is already the CDC (very good). This would be the first country to get 2 premium of same type (medium) at same rank. It is maybe because we do not have premium for TD at rank 8 or premium in rank 7 and lower...

The Chinese have 2 tier 8 meds,  the Germans have 2 tier 8 TD's and the Russians have 2 tier 7 TD's and 2 tier 8 heavies. I bet there's a few I've missed too. 

 

Having not played tanks all year I'm finally starting to miss it again. Very tempted to get the cdc and this to be honest. I like collecting prems. If course I've missed some but these 2 meds do look fun for different reasons.

A little note for this tank: his standard shells are 200 pen APCR not AP.

I've noticed that. From watching all the games on youtube it looks handy. Yes you don't get the normalisation but the speed the shells fire you catch the enemy as they try and pull back behind cover.

Terrible aim time, bad accuracy, meh penetration, all traded for alpha... There is nothing particulary good about this tank TBH, with 215/265 pen it might be worth the money, either that or a little better accuracy/aim time, as it is, hmmm, rather meh.

This tank really is just a Firefly with higher alpha at Tier VIII. For me that makes it redundant. I rather play the Firefly, which also has four crew members, makes a lot of money, can be bought with silver, has high shell velocity even with AP, has better penetration relative to its Tier, has much better armour relative to its Tier (admitted, it's still utter crap), has excellent DPM, has excellent accuracy, is two Tiers lower, and has better looks. Though the latter is strictly personal; I guess some people like the drain pipe barrel and car radiator muzzle break on a Citroen 2CV.

You need to be a brit to love the firefly, but the french will surely be a lover of this new premium medium, even if it does not taste so good for you. And it is a mush have for me.

After looking to a lot of replay from our russian friend, it seems to rock if you remain in 3rd line or in sniping, but I am not against a light buff of pen or aiming time

Most of the YouTubers' reviews seem to be (as usual) quite selective - nice games with this tank, but mostly in Tier 8, and mostly in those odd games where the reviewer seems to be ignored by the enemy team and thus able to rack up an impressive score.

 

I'm somewhat sceptical; a Sherman/M4 tank in Tier 9 & 10 games, but without the speed and agility to dodge into cover?

Usually wg not disclose the release of a new content if not 1 day before or the same day... 
However I think I will take it , has some interesting features for sniper role or td/med style, and i love the sherman shape, that's just my opinion. It's hard to play like all 
paper tanks but im already trained with my main the sta-2 so..

So, price of this thing in gold is 7200, which is fair.

The problem is, will people care about it when CDC is around and does a better job as a 'true' medium tank?

 

Super Sherman is comparable either to Firefly or to Jackson, two tiers higher with more health and a bigger gun, but trying Firefly with a kemp bush setup against higher tier opponents, they just laugh at you, spot you, and wreck you. Now imagine this against stuff like BatFarts, Soviet meds, STB-1 and AMX 30 which can spot the other side of the map.

Still interested in this tank though. :)

Where as the price been announced? I'm interested in buying one.

The prices are usually unveiled on WoT Wiki itself, I read it there.

Thing is, the tank is not in the premium shop or the in-game store, and you should expect a bundle for us EU folks.

 

Also, saw a couple replays and yes, the tank seems to perform better as a mobile sniper than a bush kemper.

 

Enemies underestimating it may play in the Sherman's favor as well - "hey what is a Sherman doing on Tier 8?" *390 damage later...* "wtf hax0r nerf".

Ah right thanks. To be honest I'm just about to start aging tanks again so a bundle would suit me fine. I'll need some prem time to maximise my credits and gold for camo etc. Just wish they'd hurry up and release it. Russia already have it.

I'm broke so I would not be able to get it even if they released it now. :(

Hopefully it won't be a one-time bundle, as it is I'm starting to get more interested in Super Sherman than Mle. 49.
