After seeing some gameplay of this tank. I wondered why it gets so low credit income compared to the damage it does.

 

From the gameplay video they do around 5k damage and gets 80k credits.

When i play superpershing i get 80k credits when i do half that damage 2,5k.

 

Spotting, assist and the rest seems to be the same.

 

Unless there is something im missing, it seems like the Somua gets less credits per penetration then superpershing

Somua shells cost 1030 credits for 300 damage, a rather poor ratio of cost/damage. A Skorpion G shell doesn't cost much more than that, 1070, and those do an average of 490. SP on the other hand pays 255 credits for 240 damage, which means that without premium ammo the Somua pays 3 times as much in shell costs for the same amount of damage done. Could explain a part of it, especially if you miss a lot.

That's what makes the M4 rev one of the best credit earners per shot, since its shell cost is like 250(?) and it does 390 damage.

 

Of course, it only has 200 pen so that kinda mitigates it.
