Hello Fellow Tankers!

 

In a few days I'm traveling down through the US of A and I thought, "OH NO! I'll miss the AMX CDC event!". So I golded it. I've always wanted it...

10 games later I have a win rate of 60% :) and an average damage of 1130.

But those stats are mainly because of my teams. I'd like you guys to offer some advice on playing it.

What playstyles do you guys use? Is it similar to the Leopard 1 - "Mobile Sniper"?

Look forward to some feedback on this (hopefully) awesome tank.

Well, camo is your friend because you have no armor, but you're the size of a goddamn bus and not classified as a light tank so you have no camo. Great gun depression, but the turret is so soft they'll likely overmatch anywhere if they hit it. Great acceleration but your top speed is too low to use it. Turret's a flat 90 degrees to the ground and it's nearly half the size of the hull. Gun mantlet is 30mm thick, so not even that will bounce shots. Thin armor + no weight = bad at ramming. No useful HE rounds. 

 

But it looks sexy.

This is what counts!

Hopefully I can wiggle in front of the reds and they'll be so mesmerized they won't shoot. :trollface::girl:

Key to the cdc. Dont yolo.....wait....that’s for every tank.....

 

until late game it isn’t a flanker. It isn’t a brawler and it really isn’t a sniper. It’s the bizarro version of a pershing. Mediocre at everything and nit not horrible at any one thing. 

 

2nd line behind your more capable mediums until end game is a good suggestion. 

 

Use the speed to retreat like the real French......I mean, strategically reposition.

Have the French ever won a war, any war, without having to be bailed out by someone else? Just curious..  especially after reading that saying by a famous general, "I'd rather have the Germans in front of me than the French behind me."

 

I know Napoleon won a bunch of battles, but in the end he lost the war.

Napoleon lost for the reason of failing to understand Russia geography. The enemys quickly gathering to crush Napoleon after he failed didn't help either. 

 

As for your question, there one, Saxon wars. However, that was done by Frankish empire (emperor - Charlemagne) who territory is in modern day France but larger than France.

 

There is indeed a war where french did win, the Norman conquest on the Anglo-saxons.

Post your stats after 100 games—I will be surprised to see 60% WR.

The 1100 average damage seems about right for that pos tank. But seriously 1100 average damage on a tier 8 will eventually net you a 40-something win rate. You only played 10 battles and haven’t even been minus 1 yet. Good luck when it’s just you vs. an e75. He can just back up to a rock and you lose.

I’ve only done 13 battles so far and disliked everyone though it’s not terribad after the buff. Just bad.

It is a great looking tank. You have to work it . Keep moving at all time its not a Bulldog. I have had fun with it. Dan know tanks, Tiger and Fu know what they are talking about. They also give great advice. Thanks guys
