Starting in 9.20, the Foch (155) becomes a special vehicle, while a completely new TD; the AMX 50 Foch B, rolls out on Tier X.

 

It seems like this TD will become a special tank like the Obj260/CW reward tanks:

  • What gets transferred to the AMX 50 Foch B?

All customization items (camo, emblems, and inscriptions) go to the AMX 50 Foch B for their remaining duration. The AMX 50 Foch’s (155) Crew gets retrained for the AMX 50 Foch B. Since the AMX 50 Foch (155) has a special status, you can recruit a Crew from any French TD without penalty.

 

This is pretty cool!

 

And how to get it:

Block Quote

If you researched and purchased the AMX 50 Foch (155), it remains in your Garage, changing its status to a special vehicle, and you also get the AMX 50 Foch B.

 

So basically this will go down the same way the T34 went down when that went from a T9 HT to a T8 premium, we'll get it for free if you own it.

 

Also: They won't change the Batchat25t for now which is good news :)

Looking forward to too seeing how it will turn out.

Yes, that sounds ambiguous, but do we really care? I am currently slowly grinding my way up the French TD line but I have zero motivation to accelerate this grind now in order to get this "special vehicle" that was nerfed into oblivion.

True but it is not like you haven't been able to grind this line earlier now is it

Still a better tank than CW reward tanks ;)

Well, it will get a slight buff:

  • What’s with the AMX 50 Foch’s (155) combat parameters?

It benefits from the same set of improvements the new Tier X received (except for the gun; it retains the 155mm autoloader): its front and side armor got thicker and gun depression and elevation went up a few degrees.

Finally a reason to buy that tank. Got it unlocked for a while, but never considered it worth the silver. But the deal of getting the old one as crew-trainer AND the new one is too good to skip.

I only started to grind it when I learned that there will be a new and better tier 10 vehicle instead of that neutered dinosaur.

So, while we're at it, if I own 215b can I expect it to get special status along with free Chieftain and Super Conqueror? :v

 

I'll grab my coat

Honestly I do not like this concept - why it could not be like Chinese HTs? Keep both in game and maximum would be to give AMX 50 Foch B for free to owners of Foch 155...

Especially with these buffs 155 could be viable option again and you could choose what you prefer.

 

Or why not give Foch 155 another (Foch B) weapon? It would at least offer some diversity

Special, is that something that is inbetween an ordinary tank and a premium one? Does there exist a "definition" for special?

Doesn't make credits but you can use multiple crews like in premiums
