Is the armor on the R35, AMX38, AMX 40 OP.  I love to drive the British lights/meds from T2 to T7 and WOW what a struggle to pen with regular AP.  I not talking penning from the front either. Sides and back mostly RED:angry:.  Good luck trying to pen getting uptiered. AMX 40 is one tough customer trying to pen with M5 Stuart.  I got 59Pen on AP and AMX has 65 Armor on the sides. Back is 40 armor so even that is no guarantee of penning.  I am doing 40 damage per shot and bouncing half easily that means I am doing only 100 damage per clip while it is hitting me with 160 damage over 1/3 of my hitpoints. Not a very good exchange.  I am even bouncing shots with TD's.  Don't know what they were thinking when they armored these things up.  The only saving grace is that they are slow. 

This has really made me rethink my seal clubing strategy.  I leave these tanks for last if I can and take them on when the rest of the reds are dead. I take a shot or two and run away and repeat. 

Thanks for reading my rant.

  Those lower tiered French lights need and I suspect will get an armor nerf.

More likely they'll get a gun nerf that makes them nearly impenetrable but nearly impossible to do damage in.

I actually like the fact they are there.

It means less seal clubbers like T-46, A-20 and Cruiser IV.

 

So basically they make my team last longer, and I have no problem fighting them myself.


I played TDs before it was cool. It was also never cool to begin with.

Those are the tanks I drive at those tiers. LOL. Those are favorite toon tanks.  Two of those together are like being attack by a herd of tweeker woodpeckers on meth.

Ive driven the AMX 40 just enough to know that its not OP in the slightest

 

Guns trash, and armor has major weakspots all over

 

Basically everything bar the stuart can pen the AMX 40 anyway

I do see little weak spots on the turret but and 40 damage a pop I have to hit them 10 or 12 times to kill one with and average damage roll.  With bounces I have to hit an AMZ 40 around 20 times.  It only has to hit me 3 times to kill me. The only saving grace is the speed of the French lites, in name only these are heavies imo.  I will not be grinding the French lites anytime soon.  I there are more than enough tank lines to grind at this point. I am concentrating on IS line and American Heavy Autoloaders look interesting now with the buff.

Stop seal clubbing.

Yep I enjoy playing them  Yes very strong armor Their main draw back I think is their speed as far as pen goes it teaches you to aim better module damage Good practice for higher tiers when only module damage will help there also  aim small miss small. Perhaps the developers felt after WWII and France having the world's tallest Army. Hands raised in surrender They could would make their virtual counterparts more stand up. I did read when Germany invaded France The Char B1 was feared by the Panzer units as It bounced their rounds
