Currently I'm grinding for the bat-chat  but I'm doubting I'll actually like it (after the nerfs)  and debating on whether to go with the 13 105.

 

What tank would people recommend?

Welcome to the Forum!

 

Dunno... depends on what you like. What's your playstyle?

Batmobile is most fun, but I believe 13 105 might come close. Whatever you do don't do 30B, it's ruined by nerfs so much.

Go down the Foch line. You get to play the Bathtub of Doom.

Just make sure to equip White Flag on them. It's a must.

The people would recommend the tank that suits YOUR play style best;

 

Personally, I do not like heavies like the M4 Mle 54, because slow and armored; but I am grinding to get it. I think the 50B is more what I would fancy; I am at the 50-120.

I own the B/C 25t, and the 13-105;

I do not have a decent crew to put in the B/C 25t, so I am not playing it yet.

The 13-105 is ok, but I am giving it a rest after I did the Tusk contract last year, with that tank.

 

I have unlocked the Mle 51 and AMX 30, but the 30 is now anemic. I have the AC 48, however TD's are not really my cup of tea.

 

So it is up to what satisfies you in WoT...

I love my French tanks; advice isn't worth much because WoT keeps nerfing the Tier Xs.

 

Play what you like. I have heard that the 30 line, which was hard to play before, is now total crud. :(

Bat chat, and 50B.

Foch is for campers, 30B is completelly nerfed, the heavy... i dont know what is that tank but doesnt worth it and 13 105 is nerfed too, so you have 30 sec reload for a 1200 clip dmg, better Sheridan or the soviet.

And train clutch braking and off road driving on your crew to turn around and run away from the enemy a little bit quicker. Some 105 octane fuel might help there as well!

There is no need to turn around in a french tank. They were equipped with inverters, so in theory, you could go as fast backward as you go forward. Like the coming EBR.

 

This is one of the anomaly in WoTM; the backing speed being different.

There are lots of anomalies in WoT. The KV-2 and the ELC AMX are two that irl couldnt fire on the move. The Churchill could climb steeper hills than its contemporaries and could climb similar hills faster and with less speed loss. The IS series had poor ergonomic design and wouldnt have been effective in a defensive fight. Its just a matter of balancing out these issues.

I was not literally, seriously answering the thread. Obviously, Brute was making fun of the French requiring speed to escape battles.

But when I was working at the AMX, we did do a backward race once, onto two parallel sections of the testing circuit, using nothing but the rear view mirrors on tanks not equipped with turrets. So it is possible to go full speed in reverse in an AMX 30B. And it is not that difficult either, because on a straight line, you don't need much correction to keep up. 

Although I have never been in combat in a 30B, I believe the commander would have been able to guide the pilot at full backward speed.

AMX 10's and 13's also had inverters. However, more recent tanks do not.

I’m working towards the 30B myself...though I am going to pickup the heavies as well on the off chance I can actually complete the Sharpshooter contract in the next 58 days.  I doubt I can, because the exp amounts are crazy, but looking at wotstatconsole.de tells me the Frenchies aren’t in a bad place and the big one looks cool as hell...so, not all bad.  I had ground through Tier VII in both the USSR and US heavies...but...well...the French, Chinese and British just seem like better choices.

 

I have learned that I basically hate anything without a turret, so that leaves virtually every TD line out including the French. I am at Tier V on the arty, sold it months ago...might buy it back due to my kid liking arty for some reason.

The BC 25t is basically a light tank, too! No armor, but fast and nimble. A more devastating gun (5 shells, higher damage potential per clip than the 120mm of the 50B) in exchange for a larger silhouette than the AMX 13 105, though it‘s camo rating it is still quite good and with silent driving you can be quite stealthy even on the move, thus making it a viable scout, too.

 

Imho it‘s currently the best deal the French have to offer, but that might change with the introduction of the wheeled tanks.
