Hello,

 

I had a couple of years ago my fresh bougt fcm36pak40 but after two games i sold it because i thought it was bad but i did not know how to play the game and i thought all tanks got great armore i was a noob, a big one at that time. And know a couple of years and games later i regretted that i sold that tank so my question is does anybody of it wil return in the shop (as special).

Well, you never know. Wouldn't surprise me if it returned in a poll like the leFH.

 

The shop page is not 100% clear on pre-9.16 (presumably) tank restoration. I think it might be worth sending a ticket if you haven't restored any tanks in the past. It used to be a single-use restoration before the current system was implemented, and we got another chance during the first tank trade-in event.

If i am not mistaken you are entitled to one restoration given they can see the tank in your service record ( no reseters etc) so give it a shot

Hopefully WG won't sell it again, I would hate it to see more than just mine in a battle:B

It's one of the removed tanks that have never been sold once since it's removal iirc. It's a tier III with a base 400m view range. The Province removal last time was mostly his credit. Get that map, spawn on the north side, press W for 3 seconds, get 15 spots & instant Ace.

It's pretty broken, so expect it to appear in a £99 bundle soon

It's got to be the best TD at it's tier.  Not the quickest, but that gun .... and that view range....

Thing is... it's a pre-nerf TD. So it has the pre-nerf TD view range, the pre-nerf TD camo, the highest AP dpm on a tier III TD. And the best aim time that beats most TD's with over half a second.

 

Tho the speed kills it and the low ammo load tbh. So it can't afford to blind fire too much, nor do I run much HE on it. It has a poor max potential damage if you hit every shot. The 2nd lowest of any tier III TD. SU-76I has the highest with over 10 000, 4K more then the 2nd most. This has 4000. But besides the higher caliber. The 76I is a bit worse on every gun stat vs it. But I carry lots of HE on it vs the Pak due to the ammo load. Great for most TD's and lights.

It's really not worth it, I have it and it's boring, trash, slow and useless on most maps.

There is no restoration for any tank you can't restore using the in game system.

 

Support had a 2 month time limit regardless of how special the tank was, it's a lot more than 2 month since that was introduced.

I'm a big fan of the low tier Russian TDs, but none of them make my top three for sheer enjoyment.  The FCM does (along with Marder 38 and T67).  You can have a lot of quite ordinary games in all of them, but when you have a good game, it's usually great.

Can confirm this. Have tried to get my StuG IV turd back (free to play me wanted a garage slot at the time, ok?) but that's a hard no. The FCM might appear in the shop but I will never be able to ace that mission reward tank.

And it gives me a sad.

It's quite the trash. Despite the gun and viewrange,it's so bloody slow. Cons outweigh the Pros on this one.

And camo is quite weak. 

 

I still enjoy to wreck them with my GrossTraktor or Pz.S35,when I peek those hills.

Hopefully not. Don't need more of that gamebreaking crap for the 300-600 WN8 tomatoes.

T14, Ram II and Pz IV S was the first tanks to be removed when WG had their pref MM clean up, and not due to them being strong. In fact, the Pz IV S had the rep as the worst premium in the game at one point before it's numerous buffs. 

 

Pak 40 was the first premium tank to get removed from the tech tree for being a bit too strong in some aspects, inc the 400m view range and the dpm. Even more so after the TD camo and view range nerfs. As I said, the old Province map was removed mostly due to all the Pak 40's padding it. As they got 10+ spots just by sitting in spawn just farming their own spotting with the dpm. 

 

Tho meta changes on even low tier. And with the maps now, it's not as strong anymore as you can more easily close the distance. But still... the 400m view range and the 2-300 more dpm then any tier III TD still is there.

Hopefully not. Park this thing in a bush overlooking the cap and just farm when the hordes come in.. No mobility is its saviour..

You can't hide something this big from statpadders like me. Aside all the blind tanks in these low tiers,I can outspot this thing,while chances are,it won't outspot me.
