Hello fellow tankers and tankgirls.

I just want a yes or no.

 

Personally, I'd like the AMX 40 to receive a 240 hp or maybe even 320 horsepower (diesel?) engine

to be a bit more competitive, since these days everyone and their mom are going so fast it is not easy

to play this otherwise very fine vehicle.

 

thank you for your attention.

 

your friendly neighbourhood Pansenmann

The "HEAT duck" is truly the most fearsome enemy I know on the battlefield, so naturally I voted yes.

Yeah the duckie could do with a buff, slight mobility buff and the chance to actually be able to pen something would be nice

It does (slight engine buff but it shouldnt be fast in first place, and HP buff and maybe pref mm) but WG doesnt care about tier 4 and below at all so dont even bother

A bit more speed and the possibility to use the big gun on the first turret - which looks a lot... quacker.

They should just do what console did. Just make it be able to reach 50 on flat ground. Not just when falling out of a plane. As mine there can even do 65 downhill and get some air. It's not agile, it's still slow to get to speed. But if you give it time to build up. It's fast enough that it's not a pain to move around most times. Way way way more enjoyable to play there.

Nice. About time you left the Kiosk. Is that Minsk or Paris office? ;)

 

Also, the Poll enables people to vote for both options... :/

It needs the ability to lay "egg mines".

It wouldn't hurt if it was a bit faster or had a gun that can actually hit something. It's a pretty badass tank when top tier and it manages to get to the action when it still matters, but it's just too slow and inaccurate to be fun.

Just needs the machine gun turret weak spot strengthened. The gun is a little weak but is offset by the armour, other than that large weak spot.

Speed buff can be historically accurate

Quack!

AMX 40 has just terrible reloading time on it's 75 mm gun. Unique matchmaking would be good too, it doesn't stand a chance against tier 5.

So yes, it needs a slight buff. If we want it to become even greater meme, MOAR ARMOUR!!

This buff is an idea as well

Haven't played "The Duck of Doom" for like 3 years maybe, when I got my ELC for the first time. A buff might be good since I have no ideea how this handles in the current format of the game
