Please vote, I want to hear your opinions.
 
​!Also, tell why you prefer your choice! 
 
​I prefer the Foch 155 over the Foch 50B, due to it's higher penetration and better alpha.
​Also, 750 alpha is satisfying

Foch 155 is better, sure that ONE game in a blue moon where you can actualy clip something with the Foch B may be satishfying but overall the 155 is better imo simply because the penn is way better, with the foch B you are forced to shoot gold at everything because you have a tier 8 gun. Foch B is annoying because you will rarely ever hit let alone penn your 6 shells.

Pen is fixed by pressing two or just finding softer targets or flanking, after that Foch B is bettter in pretty much every way, particularly gun handling and reload are the big ones gives it much more flexibility.

Cause I also need to shoot gold with the 50b all the time.

Right ?

FV183 with 295 pen HESH is needed again.  Rebalancing all tanks with 1 shot.

I gotta be honest. I've enjoyed the 155 more.

Foch B, I like the far shorter reload and much superior gun handling and firepower.

257 pen is enough to kill the huge amount of idiots that drive sideways anyway, I don't need 293 pen for that.

I used to be a big fan of 155 before the big TD nerfs hit and I still like playing it, but the gun is a potato. 
50B feels a bit more forgiving now. 
Both of them are hard to play effectively.

I honestly find the Foch 155 a bigger threat than the Foch B, the Foch B just came off as a confused and wonky TD.

I prefer the 50b! Much more flexible with its reload and fun handling is pretty good. The 155 has such a stupid intra clip rld time which prevents you from clipping enemies and the gun is so fkn derpy...Also with the 50 seconds reload its very inflexible und unforgiving.

Though 50b relies much more on premium ammo it beats the 155 at adapting to the circumstances .

not even a contest 2400 dmg in 10 seconds and only a 30+ second reload. AMX 50 Foch B hands down.

Dunno, but somehow the 155 is cooler. It's all relative of course. All TDs suck huge amount of [edited]. They are basically a more socially acceptable form of arty. Same sort of people play them. I will sell my 50b if I can ever be bothered to play this stupid game again.

I had very tough times with Foch 155 pre-buff, but it seems better after the gun handling's improvement.

Foch 50 B is a funny tank, but the comparison with WT is simply unrealistic. It isn't easy to play, the only map where it's truly powerful even alone is Winterberg, if used to turn the city corner and clip heavies' flanks. Otherwise, it needs good support.

So, I vote Foch 155 after -small- buff (the true problem on it remained, it's horrible aim time: even 2.7 seconds would be far better, and we would be able to talk of a good Foch 155).

257 pen for a TD is not good but since when "120 mm SA46" gun is a tier 8 gun ?

Took my Foch B out for one match Yesterday, 2 clips shot and 6 bounces on LFP's of T8 heavy tanks, because that is what you want in your T10 TD's.....

 

Nothing special.

It means that's a gun made for tier VIII TDs. And I completely agree. This morning bad battles and, top of the tops, double bounce on Jagdpanther II at 5 meters in front of me. And the enemy killed me. 

The incredible thing is that someone gives credit to ABSURD threads about Foch 50 B OP!
