Today we welcome a new French Tier IX medium to the Supertest, the Projet 4-1, with great dynamics: a top speed of 60 km/h and a power-to-weight ratio of 26.7 hp/t. As usual for French vehicles, it’s not a tank to push enemy lines with. It may have 120 mm of well-angled frontal turret armour, but only 55 mm of hull armour. As for hit points, it has 1750 HP and a view range of 380 m.

The Projet 4-1 is armed with a 105 mm gun that boasts several excellent parameters: a 4-shell drum, 390 damage per shot, a reload time of 4 s per shell and 36 s for the entire drum. The penetration of a standard shell is 264 mm and with an HEAT round at hand you can punch through 330 mm of metal. As for dispersion and aiming time, it is 0.32 m/100m and 2 s respectively – extremely good for an autoloader!

Its good dynamics and great weapon allow the Projet 4-1 to control the battlefield, quickly respond to situational changes and take out enemies reliably. Consider the increased reload time inside the drum and the relatively weak armour… but a true master will know how to counter its weaknesses and get the most out of the vehicle’s strengths.

Looking forward to seeing this in game. This gun sacrifices intra-clip reload for accuracy and I hope that soft statistics will not negate this sacrifice. I just hope it will be a reward for either frontlines or rankeds (maybe even steel huner).

If this is going to be some kind of reward, it will be first time when I will actually grind for it. It is actually second tier 9 reward after T-55A that looks very interesting for me so I hope it won't be some super crazy grind to get it.

Would appreciate if it were a reward for something other than opening wallets.

Object 777 moved to tier 9...Object 752...and now this...

 

No way that all of these will be reward vehicles, tier 9 premiums coming?

Old AMX 30 B gun on it. Yey!

Btw, seems very balanced.

Intra-clip horrible, but hey, on fast, sneaky baby-Bat-Chat with decent gun handling to have this pen and alpha on tier 9 - what can we expect more which won't be OP in the same time.

Really looks very balanced and not underpowered.
It's not ordinary autoloader but more like spoter who can actually do serious damage.
If you think about it,
1600 damage for 12s looks similar to B-C 25t AP's 1800 for 13.64, especially with better alpha and pen.

Looks fine to me although at first sight people will be scared of 4s.
But with that alpha and especially pen and accuracy it looks very good.

Shell count - more than enough. Bat-Chat 25t at tier 10 performs good even with lower ammo capacity in tougher MM.

Armor is also weak, perfect for this mobility, and turret can give us some miracle bounces.

Of course, there are still soft stats but if it's on B-C 25t level (which is very bad) it will still work since it' tier 9.


Thumbs up from me for this tank.
I hope it will not be hidden behind Frontline wall. :)

Probably to balance the tank, because everybody will mount optics and vents since rammer is not an option. Tank will still have decent view range with crew skills, consumable and equipment.

Looks nice, with a little swedish touch. But don't let it be another reward tank pls. New Tech Tree branches are lacking big time.

At Tier 9 it Sounds like a Reward Tank....      Looks like a Shrunken Cross between the Emil I and the Manticore.....         Could be Fun, but at Tier 9 it's either  Next for a Frontline Reward or a Clan Wars Reward.....

 

Basically it means it'll Never be in my garage...

Just means it might get sold for bonds at a later time though.

Interesting...

 

FL 2020 Reward: Dont think so, since WG kept the AEP-1 secret for the first 5-6 months of the gamemode, so why announce the 2020 reward tank this early...?

Ranked 2020 Reward: Unlikely, since this year's ranked reward tank was far less detailed when it was announced compared to this tank's model, which is highly detailed already. Timing also seems odd to me, since the Kpf.Pz.50t was announced in June and we still have one episode of Ranked to go, so announcing it this early is not WG-like. 

Bond shop: Possible

Loot box: Would be a shift from previous formats

 

Guess we will have to wait and see!

Just still don't understand the use to put tiers 9 reward tanks. I got the last american tiers 9 in Fl, I use it when platoon mates want to do tiers 9 but you can't use it on any other situation :

- No FL with it

- No CW / bastion / any WG team mode with it. 

- No credit maker.

 

It is nice and i'm happy to have it in my collection but almost unusefull

Possibly this will be a mini branch coming in 2020, with a tier 8 French MT hitting Supertest too:

Harkonnen himself pointed out in the comments that it seems more likely that both of these are going to be a reward and premium tank, which I still hope is not true.

Oh, missed that comment by H. Yeah, I also hope its not true. Would be nice to get some new NON-PREMIUM content added to the regular tech trees...
