We all need to start talking about the future of french tanks in blitz. I want more!

Sometimes I want to hang in Europe without the EU...

I'm down to have more French tanks, since they've cast the French mediums and a second heavy line away to Collector status.

 

AMX 13 105? Off the bat though it might have too similar potential to B-C 25t, but who knows what they can do if they do decide to put it in (I don't know anything about their status though). Prototype vehicles don't seem far off.

 

Wheeled vehicles though...hmm...

AMX 13 105 is my dream vehicle. It would be the only tank Id play if it was added. Id love for them to rearrange the French Lights to add it (like with the VK 72.01 and Maus). Even a premium at tier IX or X would satisfy me, I would pay big for it.

Do not want wheeled vehicles, but I wouldn't cry about it.

We are getting a new French TD premium in the coming months (not sure when, a recent post about it is on official Blitz social media accounts regarding it being tested).

 

Finally, please name your topics appropriately in the future. Randomness and clickbait is a bit low brow. This is just a suggestion, I'm not a mod or administrator.

How goodare French heavies. Yu can just dump a massive sack of HP and burst damage anywhere on the map and run away.

I'll say it now the Emil1 has awful armour and the 50 100 annihilates it

A good suggestion. Better than the pp post but only marginally

A very good recommendation to name the title correctly so it doesn’t get locked, trashed and the OP placed on an escalating series of penalties.

Hehe no need to worry, I know how much of a nuisance they are in other games. I'm largely against the idea of adding them, but I'm curious as to how they would translate into Blitz, which has smaller maps and fewer vehicles.

They wouldn’t… 

    Two options - broken OP, or useless lemon. 
 

They work on War Thunder due to players having arty support, and working MG’s (and air assets).

French medium tank line? I would kill for more medium tank lines to grind.

No I'm not defending German technical superiority, I'm stating the ****ing obvious!

One of the major issues is the French Tech Tree and Premiums are filled with ‘vapor ware’ after WW1, as few of the tanks even existed in real life and most that did where only prototypes.  
  WW2 was a write off - with Free French forces using Allied equipment (mostly American). 
 

Post WW2, the ARL crashed and burned and the AMX 50 did as badly and led to the M47 Patton adoption by the French Army. 
  The AMX-30 came out of the failed German/French (and theoretically Italian) joint program (joint tank programs seem to fail everywhere - see MBT-70 program).  The only other ‘real’ French tanks are the Recce tanks of the AMX-13 line - which Blitz has as the BC line 


It appears that the French Medium line from WoT has been absorbed as Premiums and many other fictional tanks brought in. 

X: AMX 30 B 

9: AMX 30 Prototype 

8: AMX CDC, M4A1 Rev, Lorraine 40t,  the soon to be released BC Bourrasque 

  As well as the WoT heavy, FCM 50t being placed as a med in Blitz  

 

Now there are different Gun variants that could be introduced - the BC lines offer the AMX 13/105 for instance could be moved into 8 or 9 - same chassis as the AMX 13/90 but depending on Balance could be a 8/9.  

  That said I think a French Premium Light in 9 would be cool and the 13/105 would fit that bill.  

 

 

The other issue is the fictional but WoT traditional French Heavy line AMX M4 Mle XX series have been drafted as premiums.  

 

If you chose a historical option, the AMX-40 is an option for a tier X base - the BC Bourrasque uses a hull design from the AMX-40, and the 40 with its 120mm Gun, and then it could be down tiered with a AMX-40 Proto for 9.  
  It doesn’t solve the tier 8 - unless you make a heavier version of the Bourrasque, call it the AMX-40 Early Proto with less armor but retain the 120mm gun and lesser DPM. 

 

Honestly there are so many real tanks that aren’t in WoT or Blitz, that I really don’t understand the entire concept of making fake tanks or lines based on fake tanks.

There is always the single shot heavy branch we have in PC. Aside from the mle 54 there’s no other heavies in PC that aren’t in Blitz. The mle 49 is a premium in both games. 

 

Either start the split one tier later and up tier the tanks with buffs or find another Tier X heavy. Could work.

The potential AMX 30 line was shot down as it’s premium. Hopefully the light tanks will be tech tree
