it is a very very good tank, with ridiciolus turn speed and an awesome revolver action gun. Please don't nerf it but absolutely do not buff it!

Games played : 252
Wins : 177 (70%)
losses: 69 (27%)
battles survived: 110 (44%)
Tanks destroyed: 509
Hit ratio: 80%
avg. dmg per round: 2034
avg. exp per round: 1020

results from lorraine platoon, alone they are weak, easily swarmed and destroyed fast(no armor). But with friends it is a rape-machine on tracks.

ive just got this tank and its stock (minus the 90mm from the ARL44/AMX M4) and ive got to say im LOVING IT!. its not aswell protected as other meds but DAMN does it do damage. I dropped a tiger 2 from 100% health to almost dead in seconds when i caught him side on. And as for normal tigers? lol. 6 shots frontaly and its dead :)

Soon as you have tracks you can put what ever combo on you like. Dont think French get torsion bars. I went for 90mm DCA, then tracks then engine then 100mm SA, then 3rd engine.

i already had the 90mm unlocked, so i went tracks, first engine.  The 100mm is a BIG upgrade imo and im in love with it. ANY tank with less than 1800hp you can kill with 1 full canister (aslong as you dont miss) and it can penatrate most tanks in game.

It's a tank with great firepower and mobility. It seemes a bit to be a Tetrarch of TVIII.

Stock its not really fun and i dont like the idea to research 2 motors which arent used anywhere else (for whooping 61k).

I can't wait to sell this POS! It's a downgrade from AMX 13 90. It's too big for a medium tank and the accuracy while moving is horrible. And the stupid gun misses so much..I can't believe it has .31 accuracy. Even scout tanks can kill you. A VK2801 with the derp gun was doing huge amount of damage to me. And to think they are going to nerf it HAHAHA!

You have to be much more careful about your shots with the 100mm because of the reload time and very high shell costs. No "just blasting away" like you got used to in AMX 13's.

But the first time you put the hurt on an IS-7 and down it from 100% to 20% (1-2 dings included) with this thing you will start to love it. Only Maus is a bit difficult (i.e. front pen is hard).

Lorraine is no ordinary tank. It is special.

Other mediums are versatile bunch. They can do almost anything. They can go head to head with heavies. They can flank with speed. They can scout when needed.

But not Lorraine. It has one role it can do. Wait, wait, wait and dash from some unseen flank and deliver its rounds. And repeat. That is it. There is nothing else this tank can do.

In a way Lorraine could be regarded as retarded member of medium tank family. It has this autistic quality to it. A sort of Rainman of World of Tanks. Seems like it has wonderful abilities but it cant really function on the battle field on its own. It's helpless when it counters it own tier or tier below 1 on 1. Then it is really retarded. But if others in the team help to create "Lorraine friendly environment" it can be effective. In these situations it can seems like effective tank that really can deliver.

But this usefulness is an illusion. Rare accident of chaotic battle field. When you look at the stats you see the true story. It is the worst tank of this game. What at first tank seems like a bit special tank turns out to total retard. It can not deliver. It can not stay alive. It can not kill. It can not win battles. In a battle it takes one tier 9 slot away from the team just being there.

Lorraine is the Rainman of Wot.

but you don't need half the enemy team to be killed in seconds as soon as you're spotted, because you are target #1 (or even higher ;)).
I'm not saying it's a bad tank (though I think it was more enjoyable as a t8), but it's definately not OP, it's just much too unreliable.

it was first priority in t8 and 122 was really annoying that days, but yes t8 is the wallet fighter tier so it was a bit easier.

yeah, it was always high priority, but I just felt it was easier to deal with it on t8 ;)

tank is beyond horrible. My worst t9. I really hate it. Turret elevation really sucks. Gun accuary beyond worse. Every hit gets as full dmg and critical. I drive alots of tank but this really bad. I always keep tanks @ my garagare . ( my garagare now has 40+ tank) But i will sell this garbage tank. I dont want too see this garbage @ my garage...

I also find this tank to be horrible. It is too big for a medium tank and has 0 armor, And the gun sucks a lot. Aiming takes too long for a medium tank and the accuracy is also bad and the penetration is lowest among the tier 9 tanks. I cannot even penetrate sides of e-75. This tank cand do nothing! You cannot snipe because accuracy sucks and you cannot join close combat fights because of lack of armor.  And the turret  makes it even worst. It gets broken by every shot and the elevation sucks a lot.
