I think if they'd improve the speed on a flat surface it wouldnt suck so much.

platoon with mates in other tier4 tanks and perform as a meatshield (make em follow you so you can screen em). trust me storming bridge on mountain pass never brought me more fun than when i was acting as meatshield for my platoon dinging everything and relentlessly advancing ;)

i would fist him till he explodes.

lol, i'm assuming you meant punch?

i cant wait to get out if this damn thing, but at least its better than its predecessor.
still its drive very slowly at the enemy and hope to get close enough that a shell has a chance to pen. i still shoot at long range and hope for a crit

I could forgive the armor, weapons, and hitpoints if the thing could actually move faster than a maus.

For supposedly having a 50km top speed its absolutely shocking that a maus can actually move faster than it on flat ground.

I just got completely destroyed on steppes near the base because the stupid tank moves so slowly the enemy had got to our base before i even had a chance to leave the vicinity.

TIP: Play it in a platoon and talk over skype. I never ever had so much fun while playing an awfull tank. We were laughing our asses off.

It is such a comical, wierd and freaky tank. And it gets in "Scout Duty". BWAHAHAHAHA. have u ever laughed while failing hard in an useless tank? Try it my friend, try it.

And of course, if it is top tier in a matchup it can really annoy everybody in the match. (even your own team, remember? U R SLOOOOOOOOW)


I know exactly what you mean man, this duckling is invincible LOL in tier 4 battles it is a god lol once in malinovka, i stopped attacking force and just charged to enemy base through the field, got steel wall, 37 hits taken and killed 5 of them and took the base LOL i also bounced IS rounds, KV rounds, i even brawled Tiger P to death LOL, well I didnt kill it, my team mates did, but man was that tiger surprised LOL bounced 2 of his shots then rammed in his front, he couldnt hit me being so small while being imobilised with me ramming LOL such a funny tank

Malinovka with an AMX 40 is hilarious though. You make it to the top of the hill going about 4 kmph (by which time either your team is dead and you're next or the enemies are dead and you pass lots of wreckage), then you go down the other side at about 40-50 all the way to the bottom :D

I've had some great games on that tank... when I was top tier and I wasn't against 4 Marder IIs who could penetrate my armour by sneezing. Its armour does have its moments but the MM screws it over so badly. In the end I'd had enough and used some of my free exp to skip it and get the AMX 12t and I'm loving it. It serves absolutely no purpose in high tier battles. Its too slow, its armour is useless and it has no firepower so it can't fulfil any role at all, it can't even kill similar tier cannon fodder enemies most of the time.

Duckling is NOT invincible in tier 4 battles. T-28 can kill you at will, hetzer, su-76, su-85B, marder (some one said that it bounces off marder , maybe marder didn't have best gun), M3 Lee, T40 and many others are also mortal enemies of ugly duck. And his low speed have another setback, arty will crush you anytime. "Same tier good tank" my ass. His gun precision is 0.46!? Combined with it's less then impressive speed makes this tank useless. You can't be sniper, bad gun. You can't be brawler, low speed. Utter bullshit tank. Of course when there is tier 5 or higher tanks in the game you can do banzai charge right away or plain "back to garage" depends on how nervous one is.

in my opinion the AMX40 is quite a poor babe...i've been in one of them

when I'm in my Hummel, i love shooting AMX40s

in one game i found an AMX40 climbing hill(WoW), and when he was climbing, i couldn't shoot him due to the slope. Finally, he reached the top...KABOOM

I really didn't want to shoot him...but that was really a too easy kill

Its like a porsche, but without the wheels and the engine.
Slow, incompetent, weak. But it looks kind of nice.
I can't wait to unlock the next tank and sell it to the scrapyard.

fun to play but even if is 70mm are slopped it seem you dont have a slopped armor.

Matchmaking is bad except maybe if this tank have a superb camo vlue but since develloper told us nothing i will have to try to up camo skill

Eleven losses in a row today with this tank... Never performed that bad. But I can say those losses weren't due to me. All of them were Tier 7 matches where tier 4 tanks function as roadbumps.

it is rumored that  the armor is so weak you can shoot through 3 AMX40's if they are in a line.

I was top tier in a match on Himmelsdorf, there were only 3 tier 4 tanks on each side and the rest were tier III. Easy 7 kills and steel wall right? Well i got killed by a T-28 with 85mm in two shots. Any tier 5 can penetrate the armor from any angle, add to that T-28, M3Lee, TDs... And when i saw the rate of fire of the gun i though it's clearly a bug, a normal 75mm has about 15 shots/minute, M3 lee has 20 shots/minute, but 9 rate of fire? Is this for real? Is there any sane person that thinks this tank is remotely balanced?

They were food for my M3 Lee and T-28... My T-34's 57mm gun penetrates these with ease, unless it is shot at an unfortunate angle.

I did 2000xp in this tank before I caved in and got some extra gold to convert free XP around and skip this thing. The grind on this is worse than the M3 Lee and Hetzer combined. It's fun when you're matched right in your tier, but even then sometimes the battle is over before you've gotten there.

Also.. AMX40 is not a tank. It's a bunker with wheels.
