I think that the Bat. Chat. is by far the best looking tank so far. I suppose that IS10 will fight for the main prize in my heart.

They are innovative in design and technology, also streamlined profiles. How can you ask for moar ?

And btw this particular tank will be my first objective as well ;)

It's funny that some people are actually whining about the Bat-Chat:s caliper; max:100mm and lowest 75mm.

I don't see the point  :P

Did anyone notice that sloping will have more effect after the next patch and that the high tier french tanks have nice sloping but suck at armor thickness under normal parameters?
I think they saw that french tanks sucked in the internal tests and so they changed the way armor is calculated.
This is just my opinion but maybe it´s not totally wrong.

Indeed, it could be true :Smile_great:

Possibly. But if it is only a 1 or 2 % increase it won't make much difference!

A great looking tank, really...

... but the front plate looks like 90°...

... and all other possible values... hu, we will see. Nevertheless, great looking tank.

What we see on this picture is a shot taken from behind the tank. More or less... so this is not 90 degree front plate. Actually front plate of BC25t is nicely sloped i think...

one thing worries me though : this 90mm gun will also be the one of the ARL44. Now on T6 heavy, there is also a 90mm armed heavy tank : the infamous M6.

Problem : IIRC, the 90mm M3 of the M6 "heavy" had a c° of ~850 m/s, which translates in game with an average penetration of 160mm.

So the Schneider 90mm SA45 would be what? 200mm more or less... How could that not be OP on a T6 heavy with 120mm frontal armor?
And if they do nerf it, the BatChat will introduce the interesting concept of a glass canon armed with a blowgun. Without the camo advantage of the AMX 13 light tank :mellow:

I'm actually more worried for this tank than the Lorraine 40t
ARL44 wont have revolver mode :)

That seems more like the front of the tank ;)

I was talking about screenshot of in game tank previously included in the topic . Please do read what was written will you - I'm not blind or stupid and I can distinguish front from rear, thank you very much. That part "Actually front plate of BC25t is nicely sloped i think..." was refering to the picture included in my post. So. No.

Once the french tanks arrive, I'll abandon every other tank to get this thing.
One thing that I'd like to see however on GW is this thing or Lorraine tracking 6 tanks in a row and then retreating while the arty does it's thing.
