I held the whole right flank on malinovka by myself hidden behind the wreck of a RenaultFT. I received 38 hits.only lost a quarter of my health.destroyed two tanks and damaged another four. I am amazed with this. :Smile_harp:

so tell me, has anything like this happened to you in the new french tanks :Smile-bajan2:

No wonder it's german version is called minimaus. Always carry medkit though as you only have two crew who can and will die on you often.

I like the hotchkiss aswell, just tested its armour by standing in the middle of malinovka, i took them 111 hits to kill me of wich only about 10 penetrated the armour :Smile_great:

Yes the armor holds up very well :) personally im impressed with it (but,as has been said,carrying a medi-kit is a very good idea)

ye, this tank should not be under estimated its gun can penetrate most tanks it encounters :Smile_great:

I like it much too, you can rule a whole map with it, when you are lucky.
Especially Himmelsdorf and Malinovka is great for that little beast.

Definitely, my first and only battle in the H35 gave me 2800 xp, top gun, master gunner and defender.... it was on Mines. I mostly went near the island area, a few guys were being shot at without seeing the shooters, I uncovered them, shot them, then concentrated on a few guys on the hill that got into my line of fire, before returning to defend the base. I had spent a little free xp for a few basic upgrades first. This thing is a monster!  :Smile-playing:

I do not remember how many hits received I got, it wasn't a shocking number but I had seen enough screen shaking and heard enough *schlonk* sounds that I was surprised to notice the tank was still unhurt.

It's armor is so good, that it can't seem to kill itself very well :D

I just had a duel with another hotch, we both took prodigious amounts of fire (he got a steel wall), yet only some damaged tracks to show for it. Absolutely hilarious.

H35 & H38(f) are & always will be imbalanced :D.  Atleast now they counter each other & we have the heavily armed tier 4 gunned Tetrach to keep em down :D

In the AMX 38 i held the 6-7-8 line in Himmlesdorf on my own, holding up two D2's and a Hotchkiss H35 for about three miniuts, taking 73 hits without dieing. however, i hit them three a combined amount of 125 times. the guns on these tanks are pathetic, which is why the Armour appears so good.

Yes, agree. At the moment I am less than impressed with the low-level french tanks. Good armor on some, but slow and with anemic guns. I am running with 50% crew, if I find a keeper I will spend some money on buying better crew, hopefully that improves the speed/response.

The H35 has some unreal armour, on Mal i was coving the flank , killed a MS1 and a D1, then the H35 appeared , fired a huge number of shots at it , scored, well the little voice told me, 9 crits ! doing it about 4 % of it hits , this was side and front hits..this was with he 25mm french gun. In the end i ignored him and went killed someone else in some naff russian tank.

That said a few games later i am in my D1 on Himmel and getting shot to bits, or so i thought, one track damage and still at full HPs after me killing 2 tanks ands being " saved" by team mates killing 2 more.

I'm right here. I didn't have a whole lot o time to play yesterday, but after playing THROUGH tiers 1 & 2 in the french line (actually upgraded some of the crew) - I'm not sure I want to continue. When do these tanks get fun?
I sold back the 735F because it wasn't fun, I didn't want a whole line of tanks just like that.

I just don't recall tier 1&2 tanks NOT being fun in the other trees.

I did go on to buy the tier 3's (haven't played them yet)
But I'm just wondering: when does the french line become fun?

See my sig for the tanks I play.

I have just played 3 battles with it and I have gotten 2 top guns and 2 steel walls. It is the only french tank I find fun yet (up to tier 3).
