Looks cool. 45mm of armor on a super heavy tank... I mean as like a tier 3 premium I'm sure it would sell like hotcakes, people would wanna drive a tank the size of a maus at tier 3.

It's been modelled for some time, they've just been looking for a sane way of implementing it:

a large slow heavy tank that can not shoot behind itself.... this could only end well.

It is a great crew trainer :) 12 crew, you could train all your french heavy at same time :)

Since the O-I, this could easily be tier 2...Just needs to have about 50mm armour and a large gun about 1k hit points should do it...

" driver, commander, gunner, loader, four machine gunners, mechanic, electrician, assistant-electrician/mechanic and a radio operator."

I'm not sure what use a trained machine gunner would be for other tanks ;)

That a nice idea! I mean it would be very well balanced like that, just like the O-I oh wait.. 

 

But seriously, what would the point of this tank ever be. It would be obsolete from the moment it was released.

machine gunner = radio operator in this game usually.

Just don't add a female radio operator, or else they might start to multiply.

It only needs to be placed at suitable tier. For T2 it would be armored monster, on T3 somewhat balance and weakish on T4. Gun might be goodish ("long 75mm", most likely one of SAu40 or SARL 75mm guns). As a negative side it would be massive and slow, but could also have TOG like hp pool to compensate.  

 

It also has such a nice steam punk look, that I could pay few euros to drive it even if it was mediocre at best. It could be balanced, but it would be special tanks for those who can endure big and slow.

I guess that means:

- 1 commander

- 1 driver

- 1 gunner

- 1 loader

- 8 radio operators

Can we also have the T-100 and Neubaufahrzeuge at tier 2?

 

For, you know, balance.

I think the french build it that big so they could put a destillery inside it for longer campains.

Which is also why armour is so thin.

Give it a rather fast blunderbuss-accuracy-kind-of gun and lots of HP. Would be something really unique. I like.
