Spall Liner + vents makes this tank waaaay badass. You can be useful as suicide spotter for low armored meds like t34-85. TD in the bushes? go at him and me him cry :>

It really wasn't that bad when it was top tank and you had it fully upgraded, just don't expect it to be a fast light tank, it's a heavy tank!

This is the dream of any AMX40 player.


It's simply impossible to lose this game, but we did because he rushed the central area, killed 2 tanks, and by the time he started capping the enemy flag we already had 5 tanks on our base...

So okay Im through with it. Reached Elite after 44 matches with 64% win ratio. At first that sounds good, but it really isnt. Had some luck with good teams, espacially in the end. With the last gun its somewhat okay, but before that you feel totally worthless for whatever role there is for a tank. In matches where you are mid- or lowtier you can only grab yourself a bush and spot enemies (dont! shoot! ever!) or hope for an occasional scout noob you can pin and then kill.

Will never use that tank again and I believe WG should really rethink the first french light tanks. At least classify them as medium and give em a better match making.

I freeXP-ed all the modules, since it was absolutely unbearable. It reminded me a lot of the horrible closed beta VK3001P and Panther grind, but atleast with those 2 tanks you ended up with a proper tank.
Even with all the modules, this tank stinks. Most of the time you are just cannon fodder, and even when you're top tank, all other tanks are about twice as fast, so you end up being too late a lot.

Oh sure, you have the occasional "acceptable" round, but are you playing this game to have a decent battle every 10 or so rounds? Do you enjoy climbing a hill with 4kmph?

I just dinged a Priest artillery 4 times in a row. Guess that should teach me to take the extra 10 minutes to get behind him.

This tank is a reversed T-28. Un-fun to play with, and the grind only stops when you reach the AMX12t.

It's up there with the 38NA as the joint worst tank I've driven. This grind hurts.

True, was bad, but at least you could scout a little AND snipe as top tier.
AMX you could... eh... Well, function as cover as soon as you are a wreck? :D

Do i like the AMX40, No definitly not. But for the battles that i played it, it actually went so-so(which actually surprised me alot, expected alot worse), when your in a match with tier 6 or 7's this tank will straight out suck(pretty much all T4 tanks do in this case). But in that situation i tried to shoot scout tanks that were after our arty, and i usually got several shots in that way and you're moslty still in the vicinity as this tank has no speed. In a tier 3 & 4 match this tank is evil though, you can get quite a number of kills then in this thing because 10 out of 15 tanks in the enemy team cant touch you or have a very hard time with it. In any other match you really have to know the weakspots on other tanks and you often can still manage to damage them.

T4 tanks suck in T6-T7 matches? No.
- The T4 TD's all have T5 guns, so they deal a lot more damage
- The light/medium tanks have speed and can outflank the enemy, and/or scout the enemy

The AMX-40 has neither. No T5 gun, and no speed. Even sniping from afar is not an option.

And even when you're top tank, the rest of the tanks are so fast, that they either have died before you arrive, or they won the match for you.

And ofcourse you can have gg's in this "tank" but it completely depends on your team, the enemy team, the map (flat map needed!), and the gamemode. (e.g. Assault mode: attacking on kampinova is a big no no)

I remember having it , a very morbid thought... on the other hand, try this for a laugh: Malinovka, type of battle: assault.
Assaulting tanks: all AMX-40.

defending team goes out to dinner, and wins because none of the AMX-40 reaches the hill in the 15 mins time limit  :Smile_veryhappy:
