Just a heads up for anyone out there interested in grinding the french heavy line.

Granted i've not unlocked the top gun,played it with the 100mm but i don't think the bigger gun is that much better or compensates for this tank's weaknesses.

You will never reach the top speed advertised,unless you're going downhill himmelsdorf i guess.

The real speed is in the mid 20's most of the time,extremely slow basically.

The upgraded turret is worse than the stock one armor wise,you gain a little bit more viewrange but it's not really not an upgrade,the stock one is way bouncier.

Basically it's a free xp sink.

I sold mine after 3 games and gonna gather blueprints to skip it.

That's a proper free XP sink. :)

 

You shouldn't have sold it though. You could've waited till the Christmas bonuses, went full turbo mode with reserves and premium account or played it in FL. It's not a good tank or a joy to play but the grind is worth the good tier 9 after it.

Not the greatest T8 heavy I've played. The 400 alpha gun is still kinda nice though.

Protip: Put the ugliest camo you have available on it. Combined with the tank's own ugliness, it somehow made enemies look away from me a lot, making it easier for me to shoot them. :trollface:

Because it's useless? You can pen the tank's side armour when it straight?! Hatch is as big as a house. 

 

And the top gun isn't even an upgrade! Just higher alpha, worse penetration, longer reload, worse accuracy, worse DPM?

BEST TANK EVER. It has the best features of other great tanks: speed of Maus, aiming time of CGC, armor of Skorpion. Also unique feature of developing mental illness in player who decides to grind it.

It's why most did grind it with a stock turret. As it's basically the premium HT turret, and thus a smaller target. I bounced way more with that one vs the elite one due to the cheecks. Top one lasted for about 5 fights full of holes before I tossed it out. And yeah the top gun is way worse. At least it was for my style.

 

People have been calling out the turret as bad from day one, It should have been the stock one tbh.

Yeah i am  struggling with this tank too. I use stock turret which has better gun depression and armor than uppgraded one (Pretty weird:confused:. Still worst t8 heavy in game imo.

If weren't inept in photoshopping, I'd replace the turret with a tashcans lid. Alas I am :P

Not even close to being my worst grind. T32 says hello with a grind-end WR of 38% :P

 Old news because everyone knows it already. 

Because everyone said that it was the turd of the line back when it was released.
