Today I almost killed in 1vs.1 elite pzIII/IV rushing on me, unlucky I got shooted by grille :) Armor is good enough on 5 tier matches, and often bounce on 6. There's just one thing that I can't understand: why amx40 is a "scout" (also known as light tank) and can't fight in junior company?

Because it would rule the world in a junior company.
Can you imagine a pack of those things just rolling down the center of the map? Apart from keeping them perma tracked and trying to shoot with arty, there is nothing a junior team can do about them

It's tier3 max for TDs right?
I was in a match today with this thing, and I bounced  20 shots of a Marder (frontally).
All he did was track me (which did get me killed from arty fire, but even that took several direct hits)
I already got 2 steel walls in this thing

This tank is fine. It's one of those 'awesome tank, horrible matchmaking' tanks. It's basicly a mini KV. Unfortunatly, without the 152mm gun. But it's 75mm is pritty goddamn strong to

Update

where the HELL does the 50kmh come from? try 11 top unless going down a hill being pushed by a T54!

well ive got to say that if you are in a battle with the same tier vehicles (no  damn KVS) then it is very fun to play actualy lol. Its armour bounces 90% of everything lol

I got it today and actually like the looks, but else it indeed is so bad it even makes you laugh, which is a good thing no?
With the middle gun on it I couldn't penetrate PZ III frontal 90degrees on and that's the gun which has twice the penetration of the first one. Up at hill a siegfried line the speed was 5 kph with best engine :D

Anyway with proper matchmaking (+1 tier max) a bit better speed on flat ground and maybe even better gun (though the last one seems kinda ok on paper it could be quite good.

Fighting against it I once hit it some 15 times when playing on M2 with the howitzer, half to the front viewport weakpoint, half into engine, took some 5% health with all those shots and then he blasted me.

On the other hand with Marder II using the best gun it's not a problem to penetrate it frontally at all, so it's not really that well armored even for tier IV.

Good god is this tank frustrating! It wouldn't be so bad if it actually could reach the 50KPH promissed in the specs! I end up wishing for a consumable that makes your crew get outside and push!

BTW, minor technical nitpick: there's no way IN HELL the second turret can fit in that tank! That turret was made for medium tanks! ( http://www.chars-fra...d=689&Itemid=36 scroll down untill you find pics of the G1R...) Anyone notice the huge gap between the hull and the turret in the AMX40?

i found the amx40 is pretty easy to kill once you understand you can pen the turret quite easily.

I liked that little thing, it is a "strange" way to play but in the end it can be quite amusing. It bounces nearly everything if taking hits from the face. I think that was on prokhorovka, i waited until enemy arty was dead, then went "full speed ahead" straight to our opponents base. I got tracked 3 times but killed 6 tanks on my way. And only 1 shot made damage. Got steel wall, invader, top gun and master gunner on that game (i met another amx40 on my way but he thought his ass was invincible too, which was not )

Playstyle is completely different with amx12/13 though. the amx40 is a "mini heavy", amx12/13 are "mini mediums" Oh, and they get that 6 shot revolver gun too .  :Smile-playing:

Fun enough on its own tier as a mini-heavy, but when you're small fry in a match its a nightmare. With its ridiculous low speed it even takes at least 3 mins to properly suicide.

Also, this thing sees too many t7s for it's own good

Excuse me? Go read your history Book again before saying shit.

First, the AMX 40 was never used. Only B1, D#, renault FT and Somua and some other's.
The Somua and the B1 Bis weren't feared by the german for nothing.

This was really fun... to sell!

At least you can get Steel Wall medal with it if you get matched as highest tier.

This tank would be nice if it was pitted against its own tier much more. Seriosly why throw it into games against tier 7. Only thing I do is crawl around and die before I can even damage anyone. It has a bad gun, with bad speed, with a bad grind.

Seems to me like you sum it up really well. Slow... when top its great. when not.. well you are just filling a spot for your team and easi money for the other side.

I did try it and happily sold it when I got on to 12t which I felt like was worth the pain. But things I remeber about the amx40:

I allways ended up driving straight for the enemy flag. If lucky I might even make it there before fight was over... really lucky I would see some action too.

This tank was going from one extreme to the other. one fight nothing could hurt it and it would pawn everything. the next 5 it would get 2 shot by everyone. While pinging them.

Ooh and if I remeber right it accelrated faster in reverse than forward...
