So got this not too long ago and I am loving it didn't really play many french TDs before but the top gun with the auto loader is just dirty :trollface:  thought I would post this out there as there is loads of whine threads and we could do with some positive threads 

 

It doesn't feel over powered but comfortable on any but the closed of maps (have got Mines and Himmlesdorf a couple of times but hey MM is another thread

Only if you enjoy taunting small furry animals whilst playing it. You might well be masochistic though.

Fantastic tank.
Really loved ac 48 and Foch. On tier8 you rarely need APCR at all..

257 AP pen is more then decent. (i didnt red-line snipe with it, so pen&acc is not a problem)

Looks powercreeped by Lorraine 40t and Somua SM. Those two sacrifice 25 mm of penetration but they have turrets and more HP. Also, what's the point of this autoloader when you can just play ISU with 750 alpha and better DPM?

 

Armour should be fine when top tier (even with those horrible weakpoints), especially with nice mobility of this tank. I think this yet another example of a tank that would be completely fine, even interesting (3x400 clip on tier 8 with fairy short reload, nice armour and mobility) if tier 8 MM wouldn't be screwed. Tier 10 battles make its armour pointless so you'd be better playing other french autloaders or TDs with higher alpha.

My God...

 

Powercreeped by Lorrain and Somua?

 

AMX AC 48 AP penetration is better then those two premium penetration (257 on AP is better then 263 APCR)

Also, premium rounds are superiour.

Your armour will bounce a lot of those 220 pen guns. 250+ will usually pen you everywhere.

mobility is also quite good. (ofc, not Lorr good level)

 

VS ISU152 you have

+armour

+mobility

+1200 dmg clip potential

+much more acc and a lot better aimtime

 

this is enough pros to go for.

 

you question purpose of tier8 400/1200 dmg autoloader? comparing it to MT/HT and big alpha TD...

With AMX AC you can eff. fight city, supporting HT or some other armored tank...  enemy fires, you peak out of corner and dish out 1200dmg... you could even reverse back if that is some 12-15 seconds gun. It has its playstyle niche..

 

I have played Lorr and AC 48 almost f2p. Lorr is 100% AP fired, and i used some APCR on TD, but not too much.

Lorr 66% 2321dmg 656assisted 322 games

AC 48 61% 2071dmg 482assisted 116 games

 

crew on AC had 2 members starting with 75% and no skills, one gunner and i think loader?

 

Yes, Lorr is better tank. And i like it lot more, it is one of the go to tanks for me... But AC 48 still has its purpose... It is TD after all, ffs...

also it is TD you play if you grind tierX. usually we go for tierX, not for some random tier7 or tier8 tank.

fact it leads to FOCH B is enough to say AC 48 has its purpose.
