That speed was from the start of the test server and is the same now on 7.1. So how is the chance that they didnt see that bug? 190hp on that weight is simply not enough and gives 25 km/h on flat. For sure no bug, but that tank could use few more hp. But might be overpowered with the armour for a tier4 and being fast.

190 hp its too less because i almost never get 25km/h on flat terrain even with 100 gasoline - tested for once 24 was max that i got. I think that this tank should get atleast 220-225Hp engine to at least get bit better speed. On the other hand this tank is real killer in tier 4 thanks to good armor, but it is toast if it meets hetzer.

Re: attached photo.

I dont think the hint is really of any relevance to this tank...

WG should be paying us to play this tank! I gaurentee if any gaming journalists got to play vehicle, this the game would be slated as the most unfun boring grind money milking attempt ever. It's a travesty it is allowed in. If the idea was to turn people off the game, well done mission accomplished. I know of no game developer who actively goes out of their way to make a game horrible, not fun to play, but i can see no other reason for having this vehicle in. It's speed is pathetic, it's armour DOES NOT make up for its lack of manouvreability..anyone with an ounce of sense will run rings around it. half the time any fight is over before i am anywhere near, which in hindsight is a good idea because a couple of shots and you are toast. you cant hide and pop out because it is so slow and takes an age to aim.
It should be removed from the game immediately or remove virtually all of the xp required to gear up for next tier.

Gonna see if anyone has you tubed this vehicles "performance".

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!

Either the stats is wrong or the tank speed is buggy. It seems the gear is not shifting at all and it's always driving in gear 1.

:D so i'm not the one who think that this tank is bad jako with specification 50km/h with only 190hp engine, meanwhile PzIII has 460hp engine on 20t weight :D but i found one option... free fall from cliff and you get more than 50km/h :D even Hetzer with basic equipment was faster :D i think that armor on this tank is also buged

I also noticed,like others before me,that this tanks cannot reach 50km/h(maybe if it would be thrown off a plane...).
It's a tier 4 light tank - 20-25 km/h is no good,considering it also has a very bad gun.
All nations have tier 4 or 5 weapons for tier 4 tanks,but this gets tier 3.Only Germans get tier 3 guns for tier 4 tanks,but those tanks are really fast(over 60km/h - actual speed!)
The French Tanks already SUCK, don't make them NOT PLAYABLE.

How in God's name is someone going to have the patience to get 15k exp to get to tier 5 light?!(I didn't even mentioned the credits required!).
Same goes for B 1 Heavy(that one is EVEN WORSE- MAYBE WORSE THAN THIS ONE)

Well now, I read: "It's a bug and they will fix it" and I read: "It's not a bug they will not fix it".

How do I find out which one's the correct answer?


Either way it needs a fix, either for wrong tank specification or for wrong tank ingame speed :)

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:

Ok, so the french tanks are historicly correct, but the rest can be whatever WG wants?

So far i hate this tank, hope to get the next tier soon..

The AMX40 is a pile of shit. It can't move (even with 100% crew and vents), it can't do damage (with AP or HE) and it can't even take hits (with a spall liner), so it's absolutely useless in all respects. I can't believe they allowed this worthless piece of trash through testing in this state, it has no redeeming virtues whatsoever - when a tank is so bad that the fully upgraded version of it makes the stock M3 Lee seem fun by comparison, you know it's bad.

I really wanted to like the French tanks, but this tank is so utterly awful it's made me give up on them altogether; they started out bad and have just gotten worse.

Selling it and good riddance.

totally agree about all the low end tanks, cant penetrate a wet paper bag, no speed and it just gets owned.

How am I supposed to get the XP needed to get past this tank to the AMX 12t (which I hope will be better)

Oh man I'm in for one crappy ride

What makes you think the lower ranks have gone trough any testing at all... they just copy pasted  the standard MM values and only "fixed" some of thing like the AMX12t (which still has a horrible MM value)

Imho the french tree is a test to see if they can get away with
a) don't giving a damn about the low tier
b) test if enough ppl buy premium or convert free xp to skip this ranks fast enough

both of this leads to more money for WG, due to either saving time (and there fore money) on the development cycle or to an increased income. Don't be surprised when the british tree will be fucked hard as well...

This tank is bad, haven't played any other tank that is so frustrating.
Good on paper, but the movement speed completely kills it.
That's why, I will only play this thing for base defense in the future, until I have somehow grinded the missing 7k xp - I swear.

This tank is bad bad bad. Slow - 21kph with 75% driver and com, tiny view range (360), tiny radio range (410), inacurate low damaging low penetration gun (sic! 0.4/110/74). After this one I feel like I was actually enjoying grinding T-28, A-20 and PzIII (which was looking pretty good after those two really). So French, I must say job well done :D FTW, maybe I even re-buy Lee :D
