Was trying to compare this tank to similar tier 8’s.

 

To me, the tank is a light but technically is a medium so I compared it to the RU 251 and the German Bulldog.

 

Seems to me I’d rather play the RU not taking into consideration credit earnings.

 

Thoughts on this tank? I’ve wanted one and now it’s available.

Ask Blartch, he had a very specific opinion about CDC. :)

I played it a bit. Personally I wasn’t impressed. It is not anything like Drac if you expect that. I parked mine.

I also consider it a med, and it's a strong tank. The speed and gun are excellent, its only weakness is the armor. A lot of people play it too aggressive because of the speed.

And this is why you should never listen to me. :)

but I just realized I didn’t provide any specifics. So here are my thoughts:

- it is a med so no light camo bonus. It is huge so you will get spotted easily. 

- anything hits, pens. Including HE. This tank is a joy for T49 drivers. The red ones. 

- the gun is not that impressive, which doesn’t help against the IS spam. The thing is that since everything pens you, you have to shoot on the move or with little aim. And the gun doesn’t cut it. 

On the bright side, it is very agile, but I don’t feel it is better that RU from that perspective. And RU is much smaller, and it is a true light.

I can see why other people wouldn't like it, I don't even know why I like it I just feel so at home in it.

I've had a lot of specific opinions that I've either changed or forgotten.  This case may be the former, but is definitely the latter.

 

In short, it feels like a tier 8 Leopard 1... fast, punchy depressy gun, no armor, huge and visible.  Run around at the fringes like a wee gossamer beach and peck shots when you can, find the ubiquitous red Borsig and ram the bejeezus out of it, that sort of fun.  I like it, but it's very susceptible to "challenge" MM/RBSG.

 

On the HE... vs. things like the T49 and LeKpz41, show a lot more side.  Your hull side is almost all tracks, and your long gun on a pointy turret seem to have a knack for deflecting HE for splash vs. full damage.  Not dependably so, but better than nothing if you know you're about to get hit.

The AMX CDC is one of, if not the most fun tanks in the game. It is particularly fun in all the speciality modes. If for nothing else, its worth it for those.

If it were a line, it would go like this :

 

t7 dracula

t8 CDC

t9 AMX30 proto

tX AMX30B 

 

speed, large no armor body, squashed into the ground but with good gun depression.

you are made to zoom zoom around clinging to the smallest ridge and launching sneaky attacks.

you can snipe and ram a good deal, COD the fat guys and especially run away before enemy has a reaction.

 

out of these 4 some are stronger than other but overall it’s a related taste of fun.

I completely agree.  Not that many tanks that are as fun as the cdc

More of a fun tank than a good tank. I think it is better than the Ru, the gun is better and the speed does not top out at 80 but goes 57ish almost all the time. More practical.

I really enjoy mine. Ever since they buffed the traverse it has been a vary fun tank. Excellent gun too! Blartch was right about comparing it to the tier 10 Leo 1. The AP will consistently go through the front of IS-spam tanks.... not that you should be fighting them from the front but it is very nice to have that pen when you need it.

 

Speed, gun depression, accuracy, pen and great ROF makes for a very fun tank to play. I just really enjoy this tank. Not OP at all and even a challenge to play sometimes but it is very rewarding and fun.

Because a tank is "easy to kill" really says absolutely nothing about the tank. That is a reflection of the driver and really not the tank at all. Especially if you do not have it... than you wouldn't really know would you?

yes it does say something about it, it says it's not well armored. And I do know it's easy to kill because I've killed it (easily). :)

Ever been killed by one? 

 

Yes, you have. Was it your tanks fault or yours? There’s a reason WG balances tanks using stats of 55% and up winrate players. It’s because the stats from people who haven’t mastered how to play a tank correctly make too many mistakes. The tank is solid. Your ability to kill it, doesn’t make the tank bad. It just means you can aim.

I never said it's a bad tank. I'm just saying it's not hard to kill because it doesn't have much armor, so please don't try to make an argument out of nothing.

I find that very few people regret buying the CDC. If I wern't f2p I would scoop it up in a heartbeat. If you are in a position to make that purchase, you should.

Whenever I drive mine I feel like I am driving a very fast and large 1950's Cadillac that is so heavy the suspension is always bouncing.  It gives you the feel and illusion of big tank syndrome until someone hits you with a giant HE shell..then you remember.."oh noes..I am supposed to be a sneaky fast guy"...
