As much as I love wrecking newbies in this tank, it is waaaay to overpowered as is. A tier 6 heavy that's as mobile as this tank is should not have an average pen of 212. The only tier 6 with a higher pen is the Churchhill GC. That gun is balanced out by the obvious downsides. The ARL 44 is able to easily defeat any opponent in it's tier, and I find myself shoving around many tier 7's as well. The superb pen, combined with the great rof + decent alpha, as well as the decent armor and mobility make tier 6 unbalanced. It destroys basically anyone you can face. The ARL 44 wrecks the balance of tier 6.

ARL is fine. It is balanced by russian heavies (cough cough KV-2 cough wheeze), medium/light flanks, and idiot teams.

No. Almost all the other french tanks are underpowered or mediocre at best, let this tank be the one and only shining jewel amongst the pile of manure that is the French tree

I suppose that's one way to look at it. I haven't gotten past the 44 and I dont plan on trying the french tds anytime soon

So I shouldn't grind for the 50/100 then?

Yup, even if i eat the shot with my tracks it still does a solid 300-400 damage along with tracking me so i can't chase. KV-2s are annoying and i can say this from experience. 

F*** WG am i right?

It skill floor isn't super bad because it has some armor and uberpen so pubtards that refuse to use APCR can actually pen [edited]if they manage to aim. However skill ceiling is super high because currently it has the best performing players for any tier six tank. No don't check average. Check the top 100 of the best tier six tanks. Besides 1 guy in the victory the ARL top players are much better.

Nah thats great too. Solid dpm, Highest non td/non premium tier eight penetration. Good mobility. Highest clip potential in the game and the reload isn't as bad as expected.

ARL is surprisingly good....  But it's nothing my Cromwell won't shred.

 

i agree though that it is right up there with KV-2 for best tier 6 heavy.

all French tank are super good, I love them very well. D2 is my favorite. D1 is favorite, ft 17 never went in battle so it golden :), arl is nothing new to the amazing line for me. Only time will tell if arl will get nerfed.

The side armor gets overmatched by KV-2 152 shell so as long as you can touch it it is a full HE pen. No fun being an ARL driver at that time. You need to be very careful with red KV-2 if you drive an ARL. (I've been on both ends of that :))

It is a solid heavy, but I wouldn't say it is OP.

I am at AMX M4 is is a good tank too. Has a great gun again with a great DPM for a heavy. AMX M4 puts to shame VK45.03 in any category. The main problem of AMX M4 is that it is a tier 7 and it is rather large so it is a perfect target for the Tier 8 IS tanks...

My Cromwell would wreck you because there is no armor on the sides.

Ok. Not that I am enjoying it, but for me it is a solid tank. Much better than VK.03. Armour is lacking, but it is a good heavium. At least that's how I feel.

I'd honestly take any other tier 7 (other than the St. Emil) over the AMX. TBH, out of all the tier 7s i've played, the only one worse has been the St. Emil.

F*** WG am i right?
