I was grinding 110 ages ago rage sold it because it was so poor. Fancied the new French heavies so started grinding at tier 7 with what I was told was a bad tank - actually thought it was OK if played as a heavy/medium. Then comes the 65T - what brain thought this was a viable Tier 8 heavy ?? The gun choice is hopeless - there is only one viable option since its always against tier 10, the top turret bounces LESS than the stock turret and the top engine makes no difference to this slug. Its low alpha is not made up for with a decent reload and it has a fantastic inbuilt bug that when you are fighting someone 10 metres in front of you they magically disappear from your screen - and yes it ONLY happens in this tank. My vote for the most sadistic tank developer goes to  guy who put this in the game.

Funny how you see the stock turret is better yet mount the other one.

 

My vote is that you're the sadist.

Ive gone back to the other turret - and no shooting HE first doesnt make penning with AP after easier - wish it did but that's rubbish mate.

This is the compulsory free-XP sink they put in every new line either at tier 7 or tier 8, or both in some cases (Czech line).

 

The Mle.49 is the tank that should have been the regular T8 heavy tank, not the premium, because it fits the line like a glove. It plays exactly the same as the tier 9 and 10 and has a similar armour layout.

The AMX65t should have been the premium since it's neither suitable for the old autoloader heavy line or for the new heavy armour line.

 

Obviously, due to blatant money grubbing the Mle.49 was made premium and the abomination that is the AMX65t became the compulsory free-XP sink in the new line.

I ran stock turret and stock gun on mine all the way.

 

Issue I had with and that killed of the tank for me was the mobility.  If it actually could do 50 km/h, even if it took ages to get up there. It would not be that bad. Second it seems a small hill, even the Type 4 rolls past you. So you're always late. It was on 25 to 27 on flat ground 90% of the time. Slight bump in the road and it was all gone.

 

DPM could be better, and the gun never hit anything either at times. But I would have forgiven that if it could actually move.

TVP has mobility so at least it can suicide quickly. 65t is slow as shiet so it cant even do that. VTU is indeed terrible, but the 65t is even worse...

Time does fly. I wonder if that guy is still stuck in that train of thought.
