This vehicle isn't your typical French heavy tank.

One of the worst premium tier 8 heavy tanks. Dont buy.

Great tank with superior armor but with an actual weak spot(s). With 232 pen on tier 8 you hardly ever have to spam the gold so it's making tons of credits.

 

However I would not spend ever money on this as it's possible to get this either from recruitment program, bond shop or trade in-event.

i don't have it( nor do i want to have it), but i'm sure the renegade is better than this, even if it has bigger cupola

There are some weakspots on the turret forehead as well.

 

Armor is overall OK if you don't rely on it.

Get them to rush the shot and it will do just fine.

Outside of that, accuracy is ok, mobility is ok, pen is very good.

Gun is stereotypical french gun, you need to fully aim to make it hit.

I hope the next sale will be VK 75.01 or HWK 30 

I wish wargaming would make less cash only tanks and put more of those premium tanks in the in-game store 

AMX is ok if you play like M6A2E1 (only by exposing the front and possibly juking), but it's sides are so weak lmao

This is a tasty tank for artillery, but at least it is balanced and playable : )

it feels like what WoT's gameplay used to feel like before soviet magic armour and gold ammo spam becoming an issue (or a necessity). a fair combination of strengths and weaknesses.

Ah yes, the premium tank that should be the standard tech tree heavy as it fits the line perferctly unlike the current free-XP sink of a "heavy", the AMX65t.

 

Remember kids, if you pay money, you get a blatantly better tank.

It is a good heavy, definitely not the best but still fine. It was surprising to me how few people actually go for the cupola, every good player knows to shoot the cupola or hull cheeks if at a good angle, but most people still go for the lower plate, which is actually one of the strongest parts of the tank.
If you can take position around a corner like this, it is actually quite capable, as the weakest part you are showing is 240-250mm and you can still shoot back, will not work vs tier 10s guns or high pen gold ofc, but it can hold a corner confidently vs lower tiers and tier 8s:

I got the Liberte when it became available back in the day, played over 100 battles with it with amazing 65+% win rate, then people started to understand where to pen it frontally and its fun value dropped heavily.

I traded my CDC for this one in the previous event. I confirm this tank indeed can bounce a few shots.:teethhappy:

I can confirm that most of the people still don't know how to pen this frontally + when using hulldown positions it's quite hard to hit the cupola weak spot. The turret can even face 340 russian magic shells so would not complain about its armor.

So, in order to "bounce" some shots you have to pay really money for that.

 

Wow. Unexpected move...

 

This tank SHOULD BE in the Tech Tree instead of your "Free XP" garbage vehicle AMX 65t...

Just bought AMX65t....what a pain :D 

And I got to recruit extra loader....like it wouldn't be painful.....and it is tier VIII....facing SU130s, scorpions and progettos.....and wheeled vehicles with their insane high penetration on HE......well those are nightmare for most of the tanks nowdays

Selling an in-game buyable premium tank as Tier VIII of The Week after the Xmas lootbox event is over.

 

A lot of player who bought loot boxes got a ****load of gold, so if they wanted to buy this tank, they could buy it for GOLD!

 

Again - missed opportunity for selling something special (Like FCM 50t, or KV-5, or whatever else), sales will be low on this one... again.

Edit.: Not to mention that you can get this tank for free if you are in the Referral Program, or for 8k bonds in the Bond Shop (8k bonds option not worth it imho, but its a possibility)
