None, they all suck in the current meta.

Foch 155 is worth it. Tier 9 Foch is quite strong too.

None of them, really. Look how often you see any of them in matches versus... just anything. Tanks that no one plays - never gets played by some reason.

Back before this line was changed and the AMX Foch 50 (155) was then the top of the tech tree, I played the line to gain the tier X before it was removed and replaced by the AMX 50 Foch B. I have both the tier X TDs in the garage. I sold the tier VIII and the tier IX, neither of which I considered worthy of keeping.

 

For you the tier X would only be an advantage if you want to play Clan Wars or Grand Battles. If you wish to play either of those pick the tier X.

 

If you have no desire to play in those modes pick your favourite.

 

Personally I found all of them lack lustre and below average compared to the TDs of other nations. I would marginally say the tier VIII was worse in tier than the tier IX, but both poor so it's a pretty fine line.

I am at 50-120 and don't want to play it anymore

50-100 was the same bot hoping that 50-120 would be better because of faster load.

They all crap too as I mentioned in other thread.

With this new tanks 1sec autoloaders 750dmg heavy tanks you have no chance to unload the clip

French TDs req high skill rating to play, you are probably better off going along with the more popular TDs.

 

They have incredible potential if played right. Since the autoloader burst potential is unique amongst TDs.

i have started this Tech Tree back then when they were just released and managed to unlock amx AC 48 before i quit playing.

an Autoloader TD back then was just OP.

 

But nowadays they are less played even by most skilled player worldwide.

 

and i think the main reason why is the current Maps.

 

in the current maps  every single one offerd a huge advantage for Hulldown Vehicles with decent Gun Handling or for those with big Alpa dmg.

and because the French TDs got thier weakspot Right in the Top they become less armored 'i guess'.

i also realized the current maps in General are less snipi add to this the new Tier X Lights.

155 isn't available to the OP tho, the Foch and Foch B are decent but I seriously wouldn't recommend any of the french TD's in the current meta. If you really want to pick one of them up then I'd go for the tier 9.

None.

 

You can get the same gun on the AMX 50B with a more convenient clip, a turret, better gunhandling, better mobility.  In theory the TDs got armour, but that is only from the front (sides are hughe and paper) AND if people don't shoot the hughe wreakspots or just load gold on a proper gun and shoot though the entire front.

well i don't need any of them, but its unfortunate to have a 260% skilled TD Crew and researched TechTree but no Tank of this Line in The Garage.

i am also about doing ''the new stuff for me'' added to the game such as Campaigns which lead  to obj 260 snd 279e. at least trying to :)

 

btw: how comes you prefer Tier 9 Foch over Tier10 Foch?

So you recommend amx 50B over any French TD?

Any autoloader is designed to punish mistakes and burst out huge amount of dmg in a short period of time.

 

The mistake many people make is they charge in sit still for entire unloading duration and get killed during the clip.

 

An experienced and skilled player who have map awareness, situational awareness, know reload times of various tanks, and know the timing of when to charge and when you be patient, will make the french TDs work a treat.

 

Everyone is different at the end of the day, for example, whilst everyone was using Chieftains/279s/Progettos in Ranked, I spent ~70% time in the Foch B, and reached Gold no problems.

 

The 50B is similar but is much taller, lacking the camo, and has a huge weakpoint in the entire turret.

Weren't you talking about 1s autoloader with 750 alpha? Now that's a tank I would like. I although don't find any of those tanks particularly OP. TVP and Progetto are excellent in good hands but they are quite a noob trap like autoloaders generally are.

Foch 155 is not in the tech tree. Besides, it's one of the worst tier 10 tanks.

Tier 9 Foch i guess, 257 AP pen and 325 APCR work fine on that tier. Foch b full gold only, AP cant work well.
