The French FCM 50 t might be listed among the heavy tanks but it borrows heavily from mediums.

WG simply can't stop pushing it's digital goods using misleading, incomplete or even false information.

 

This tank will not bounce a fly with its paper armor.

 

It's accurate armament will shoot in the dirt about half the time while fully aimed.

 

On the other hand It will not pen very often because it will face heavily armored opponents.

 

When it does pen by some miracle about half the time it will have very low alpha damage.

This summer sales are the clear example of what WG really think about its customers/players

Pz58 mutz, 112 , and now this "fantastic" french med / heavy ... 

Yes I can see the big smile on the CEO's face... "our customers/players are totally dumb let's give them another big kaku tank to buy"

 paper armour, pew pew gun, only positive is it is fast and quite heavy so ram kills are an option, been in garage for years, waste of money, only time I play it is when something like this comes along to remind it is there, play 1 game, remember how crap it is, let it gather cob webs again, rinse ,repeat.

armor = paper (even frontal)

 

gun = low penetration 212...yet there are old ancient time heavy tanks with pene 186 for example

 

aim = big aiming circle

 

but yes it is BIG as heavy and moving like a medium...

 

I wouldn't buy it

Had it back in the day, the awful gunhandling made it nearly unplayable.

Is it still that problematic?

 

€: Just checked, the dispersion values seem fine, was it buffed, one day?

It's trash both as medium and heavy.

Yeah, last time I considered FCM 50T was in 2014, and barely at that. Nowadays, if I see some poor soul bring it out in Frontlines (which is the only mode I play), I feel sorry for the poor guy and this obsolete tank, specially when I am driving a far superior French Heavy, Somua SM.

It used to be decent back in the day. Before the phisics update. Now it a big pile of trash, even after the recent update. Only good thing about it is the -2/+1 MM. Good luck penning 257/type/defender whis it.

This tank doesn't need a buff, it needs to stop being screwed by the Match Maker.

 

It's a tier 7.5 tank that is nearly always the weakest tank in the team because it sees tier 8 and 9 ALL THE TIME.

 

Of all the premiums that I have bought over the years, this one is the BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENT.

 

DO NOT BUY.

don't own it, but daymn! the gun handling values are terrible, and you can't even trade that well with 240 alpha. sure the mobility might be good, but you aren't going to hold a position in this thing

Russian HT/MT hybrids combine the firepower and armor of HTs with the mobility of MTs

French HT/MT hybrids combine thr firepower and armor of MTs with the mobility of HTs

Funny how that works...
