This must be a bug right? The specs say max 50km/h but I get that (perhaps) down a mineshaft only!! On a hard surface I get only 20km/h (everything upgraded!)

Please fix this quickly!

Yep i get the same wit gold crew, I was hoping for something similar to the other tier 4 lights but this tank is just plane BAD!

I guess WG is making the lower tier french tanks rubbish so you use gold to skip them, I bet they will "fix" them once the averge player has researched through them using free XP and they will then be like the other tanks from the other nations!

The only time I reched the max speed was driving downhill.
On plain ground (not on streets) I can be lucky if I reach around 30km/h.
Driving on streets my top speed was 40km/h.

Besides the low speed, slow acceleration and a worse gun, I faced many, many tier7 battles with this tank.
True, the armor is good against everything up to tier 4, but thats it. Most of the time this tank is a one hit.

The worst light tank I ever played.

This is just my personal opinion, perhaps I didn´t managed to play this tank the "right" way...

I don't really think it is intentional, just a slip up. The tank itself seems good - good armour and packs a decent punch. Needs the speed though.

well regardless of weather it was by mistake or by design. something is realy wrong with these tanks, some french tanks are actualy faster in reverse than fowards, I only realized this when i seen others driving them the wrong way round.

needs a fix asap!

Does this "scout" have same matchmaking value as other tier 4 lights? I find driving at max 15km\h on flat terrain, with 45 penetration gun and fighting kv3`s "quite" challenging grind

Dont like the speed of this tank. The max speed of 50km/h is possible downhill . You go 50 downhill but only 5km/h uphill and 20 km/h on level ground. It felt like driving a t95 at some points where everything passes you.

It´s exactly the same matchmaking value, every 3rd battle is, at least in my case, a T7 battle, and there you are simply useless. You can´t scout, the gun can´t penetrate most tanks from the front (and try to flank a tiger who is faster and more agile than you!) and the armor is almost useless.
Yeah, it´s a horrible grind, if you have free xp, skip this tank as soon as possible, this is at least my advice.

Yea its a bad tank, it has good armour and good bounce rate but the speed makes this tank totaly useless in same tier matches. And in matches with higher tiers the armour is useless so all your left with is a free kill for someone.

As for the looks, that not really an issue. Thats what the tanks looked like so I guess thats that. I like it!

The speed is pretty terrible (about 17km/h cruise speed, rather then 20), the armour is amazing for its tier but there are plenty of tier 5 tanks that have the penetration to get through it. The worst part though? The gun. The final 75mm can't penetrate the front armour of a T34 (but the T34 is one of the tanks that can pen it back), or even the side armour of a T14 or the back armour of an IS. It takes years to reload and aim and does meh damage. And to put the cherry on top of the crap cake, the reason why you go down the Hotch tree is to play speedy glass cannon, not slow turtles.

This was the same on the Test servers and the same complaints have been made

It bounces 5-10 shots in a row... then 1 shot then your dead...

In the Test server I had this with best engine and lightest turret/gun/etc (it was elite so I tested this...)

you're lucky to get 20k on a metalled road, any hill is 9k..

I actually managed to get 50k today... took it down the ski-run in the hillymap... as soon as it hit level it was 23k.. uphill.. 8k..

I know the french dont have a good reputation for heading off to war to fight but I think this is taking the p1ss...  :Smile-bajan2:

This was reported endlessly in the Bug Report for Test 7.1...


The phrase is supposed to be "Those who take the Glory, take the Gold..." not "Those who buy the Gold, take the Glory..."   :Smile-izmena:

Ok.. after playing this tank a bit more I think I get it.

Its actualy a medium tank, it is not a tier 4 scout tank. and yes its still too slow but it makes more sense to think of it as a medium tank stuck in the light tank tree.

It does not get placed in the same mathces as me t50/m5/leopard so it is not a tier 4 scout as far as the MM is concerned and in matches it is placed in the same posistion as tier 4 meds. My guess in an update it will be reclassed as a tier 4 med and the tree will be reshuffled. so the tank is working as intended "although still a little slow, but not as much as I originaly thought"

Agree with all above.. feels like 40 ton tank with a lawnmower engine. Armour gets a lot of bounces but there's just no speed to get out of trouble. Managed to knock out a Pz1V at CQ due to him bouncing, but out of 5 games thats pretty pants. Not feeling a lot of love for the frenchies at the mo.. next tier must get better, right?  :(

no, I'm quite sure they'll leave them as they are, let's face it, french tanks of the era weren't that great, they just made a lot of them

Nope It's not a  bug...Amx 40 Have around 20T. But his best engine is only 190HP., Even some cars have more HP..So full speed 50km sure it's possible only when you driving Downhill!!! :Smile-bajan2:

Get 100% crew and fully upgrade it, you will reach 24-25 kph on lever ground. Then point it down a hill => 50kph. bingo, there you go. The IS-7 can reach 50 kpt but only down hill also, similar the Lowe. Not a bug, the suspension and tracks can handle 50 kph but the engine alone can't get it there.
