No one*** can play the CDC. It's terrible.
*** I'm sure it has its fans, but they are probably insane.

I only seen it few times in random battles and it had 3-4k dmg every time so im just wondering if there is some super secret technique

If there is, only super unicums know it.

The greatest fun any CDC player can have is when artillery decides it doesn't like you...

I used to love them when VK 28.01 had deep gun. My best kill ever was on CDC - full speed drive-by with a jump and some airtime + HE highroll.

2nd line hit and run bully flanker and farmer, or support wolfpack. I even let lower tiers with more armor take the heat first. As even tier 6 guns can overmatch you, vs even the Italian tier 6 med turret.

They tend to be very good players who have experience. :)

 

Mobile sniper, let the gun fully aim in, it's bad for snapping ppl.

Do not listen to ppl who whine that you 'are not a td !!!'.

Just go for Defenders, because TVP VTUs are neglecting that sacred duty, and AMX CDCs are the next best thing for that.

It's not all bad, I like my one, nearly always makes credits unless you use food, standard ammo is very fast 1500m/s, can also passive scout fairly well on certain maps with its high speed and good camo.

I think you missed out a "/s" there.

1. stay in garage

2. click 'battle' only when previously you selected different tank

3. if you still see CDC on your screen, see point 1

 

i'm sorry - this is all about this tank right now.

I think it looks like some primitive Australian marsupial, so non.

Nah, the shell velocity is 1000m/s, tho giving it crazy fast shell may be a buff option(considering how much better the fast APCR standard makes the M4 Rev).
The problem of the CDC is that it is too big, too fragile and with too bad gun handling for the meta today. When released it was a fresh fast medium with good DPM and high pen(Remember when 212mm was best-in-class pen for a med? Pepperidge farm remembers!)
All WG has to do to make it an amazing sniper med is to buff the gun handling and maybe give it a fast shell like the one on the M4 Rev.

Mobile glass-gun with bad gun. Don't play it until bad gun is fixed.

Well you put a Russian flag on it, and either red paint or a star emblem or other Russian camo style.

 

Then you hope that will make WG buff it by accident, thinking its Russian.

 

It's like when T-54 mod 1 was underpowered, and then WG buffed its armor, view range, gun depression, mobility, gun handling, rate of fire and ammo count.

Off topic, but it still amuses me that the t55a is given Russian gun marks, rather than German. Don't see them putting British or American stripes on their versions of the Churchill or Sherman, for some reason...
