Well for starters the T9 and T10 Foch TDs are basically the same except for their guns. The T9 had 600 more DPM than the T10 with penetration being the only thing sacrificed. For DPM and pen, the 155 is last and second to last for T10 TDs. Armor is nothing special at all because T9 TD/Heavies have no trouble penetrating it on level ground, as well as everything T10 being able to butter it. Mobility is good. But not great. It doesn't have much gun depression, and the gun arc is also pretty terrible. There is nothing GOOD about this tank. Like wth. WG needs to buff its armor to like 240mm frontally, or give it the friggin autoloader it desperately needs. SOMETHING needs to buffed VASTLY about this tank.

In fairness, it looked pretty awful in the previews and stats.

I am skipping the entire line. It looks like trash from the ground up from the vids I have watched on it.

Yes, SK8trm said "something is missing" for just about every tank in a this line, which is a polite way of saying that a tank sucks.

 

Seems like a waste of time to grind this line. Maybe tanks in this line will receive a buff, maybe not.

I REALLY like the T9 Foch. Armor holds up against everything you expect it to, and 3500 DPM is fantastic

I did what I usually do having 24 million in convertable or free xp.... I xp'd the line to the tier X Foch.  I played the 8 for a bit just to get used to the line and thought the 8 was fair.  I skipped the 9 and regret it because the 10 is horrendous.  For something to come out this late into the blitz format you'd think a little more R&D would have been done to make this competitive.  It's the worst tier 10 td in the game and in MY opinion the worst 10 in the game.  It offers nothing to genuinely compete against even tier 9s.  I literally HAD to platoon to win 50% of my matches.... every single tank on 9-10 is penning this thing, especially with HE from the sides and hatches.  It has poor traverse and is basically a cereal box with a tier 9 turtle gun.  I'd rather have the doom turtle t95 when fighting 10s.

 

really dissapointed in WG to put out this tank without its only reliable offense/defense... the autoloader.  On PC NO ONE parks in front of the Foch to exchange blows.  In blitz the PTA LEO laughs as it sits in front of fire.  That's sad.

 

fix it

Omg give the tier X the reload of the tier 9? keep its current alpha, and add 230mm of frontal armor (100mm on hatches).... buff complete.  It just may stand a chance.  Otherwise stick to the tier 9 pub matches with the Foch 9.  Its effective, very.

Well the 155 isn't a "poor man's 268" as most people call it I'd argue that it's kind of a mix between 263 and 268 these tanks aren't to be underestimated that range finder is suprisingly hard to hit when your against a competent foch driver the Foch has more reliable front armor then the 268 because the 268 as you may know only has effective armor if your facing right at it and even then it has a exposed lower plate weakspot next to the gun and a capola much like the Foch.
