Have the AMX M4 49, the FCM 50t, a 3rd tank with autoloader is not really needed.

​300 damage. 5 in clip. 232 standard penetration. This can one clip many of the same tier tanks in the game. Guess that's what one pays for.

That's the gun the fcm50 should have had.

 

Why don't you fix the tanks already in game rather than make new ones? 

 

Kv5, is6, the fcm50 could be classed here but I find that I can usually pen most things with it still. Maybe a few extra hp or traverse be good. Also maybe a few gun handling parameters be improved upon.

Seems like really nice tank, but due to current tier 8 MM i presume you get 2/10 games in tier 8/9 and 8/10 games getting fucked by cactus, i.e. farmed in tier 10...

Not my cup of tea...

So how does it compare to Lorr 40t? If I have the Lorr, should I get this?

I'd say no. 

Doesn't look like a bad tnak, but the armor won't (tanks.gg, not my guts telling me that) hold up versus other T8 tanks. Upper hull is pretty good, but that's about it.

 

To be fair it looks properly balanced, in that it trades speed and one shell for armor and DPM. Someone that hasn't got the Lorraine or wants to roflstomp 3-5-7 games should enjoy it quite a bit, a good player would likely value the speed offered by the Lorraine and 50 100 instead - as would likely most when you're bottom-tier quite often.

While Lorr have 1 less bullet and the same reload, no armor, its fast, better cammo, more precise (less precise than amx 50 100). Lorr actually can surprise with few shots and than run back to cover.

This thing hovever....... Its horse power/ton is worse than for IS6. That thing is not gona be fast... And its armor only works on people that dont know where to aim

Even a red player can enjoy being able to actually run back to cover. Specially if he sees Type 4 aiming at him and missing cause he was too fast at runing back to cover.

This new tank however gona be fun to pop. Just aim for turret and enjoy full hp explosion + friendly message in garage wishing good health to you and your family. :trollface:

it might be worth it, but i will probably not going to get it, mostly because of mobility. even russian superunicorns are doing like only 2,2k dpg in it, compared to 3k+ in lorraine and defender for example :d

Derp guns gona lowe that tank. Specially UK prem tier 10 TD. With prem round on turret that will be a full pen i think. Guaranteed kaboom. :trollface:

Just watched two vids on this on YouTube, and I still cannot make up my mind, everyone went nuts about that silly little AMX even steven or whatever it is about the reload time yet on this it is 37 seconds, and they are saying that is good? On my 01 Ex Jap super heavy, the reload for the derp gun is like 8.9 seconds, now that is what I call good.

Somua looks good but I think I will give it a miss.

Top speed and the power to weight is this tanks killer.

Lorriane is much better.

Its armor is non-existent in current meta with tier8 mediums with 300+ pen. https://tanks.gg/tank/somua-sm/model?cs=obj-416&cl=31012a&vm=live

Might as well take a Lorraine and be mobile, mobility = king. Hell it even looks like a Lorraine anyway.

 

According to QB https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1GrD1BE0zLM it it hard to pen this tank in a tier 7 and lower but you are a tier 8 so prepare to meet tier 10's most of the time. He also says you can sidescrape with it, but what is the point if you get penned in the turret? I really see no advantage over the Lorraine in this tank. Your roof is also 20mm so arty (30-53mm of pen with 1050 alpha) will do 500-1000+ damage to you if it hits you on/near the roof. Sure it has 5 shots in the chamber but yeah... Losing that much mobility over 1 extra shot.

It's a crying shame really, if you'd put the Type62 on sale Today I would have bought:

 

-Type62 regardless of the price.

- Somua SM.

- 1 year premium account.

 

But since you didn't, I'm not buying anything because it's still #WalletClosed!
