The Bat.-Châtillon 12 t mle. 54 hits the Supertest

 

 

Bonjour !

 

Today we welcome a new French Tier VIII medium tank to the Supertest, the Bat.-Châtillon 12 t mle. 54, of which the strongest aspect is its mobility. Going flat out, it can hit 62 km/h, thanks to its power-to-weight ratio of 25.8 hp/t. Don’t rely on the armour, its strongest areas are only 40 mm thick, aside from only 1250 HP. It has a view range of 390 m, though.

This Bat-Chât is equipped with a two-round magazins, each dealing a massive 360 damage. Reloading the second shell will take 2 s and 18 s for the entire clip. The penetration of a standard shell is 190 mm, and for an APCR round it’s 240 mm. However, such high damage potential comes at a price: the aiming time is 3.5 s and the dispersion is 0.42/100 m. As for the gun depression angle, it’s 6°.

 

All in all, the Bat.-Châtillon 12 t mle. 54 is perfect for fast-paced gameplay and opportunistic close-quarter attacks. The clip allows you to deal high damage in just two seconds, then the superb mobility will help you get out of the action to reload. The key is to choose the right moment to attack!

...That seems very, very light for a medium tank.

It's really just a Light classified as a Medium because of the gun from my perspective tbh.

(and according to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bourrasque-class_destroyer , Bourrasque means snowstorm, in case anyone besides me is curious)

looks nice, I like the French TT and playstyle.

 

I really hope to see it as a part of a new French branch.

 

Luckily, you can watch all tanks closely and spin around them in your garage without owning them.
