Is it worth the grind I’ve recently unlocked the 50-120 and now I am trying to decide whether or not to grind this out.  Any feedback from someone who owns it?

My memory of it is that it is better than the 50 100 in every way. Sure, it sees IX+, but it's more adept at escaping trouble than the 50 100. Preserve HP early... so you can trade late game. It is a monster in the late game. 

 

Don't bother using XP on the final engine package... well, I didn't. I never felt it needed it.



There is literally an Xbox 360 in a museum, and this is the best joke you can come up with?

I prefer largely the Lorraine than the 50-120. It's an underestimate tank, it's a 50 100 with more agility (as 50-100 / 120, you can forgot armor). He has only one negative point for me : he is big.

But… for the 50B you Don't have choice : 50-120...

I was in that very situation myself a few months ago. Grinding for the 50B, and having the Lorraine oddly situated between the 50-120 and the B/C 25t; I already had the B/C 25t, it made me wonder.

That same question you are asking was answered already, and from what I understood, the Lorraine is like a little forgotten gem.

Obviously, you need the 100mm gun, and the last package is where you unleash its full potential.

You got a 6 shots clip, speed, reasonable accuracy, and 400m view range! what's not to like?

 

I unlocked it, but have not yet purchased it, as I do not have a crew to put in it, and I no longer train crews at Tier IX, I learned my mistake.

I was considering buying it today, because of the sale on camouflage; not that the Lorraine has good camouflage values, but every little bit helps.

It’s a good tank but i’d say the bat tap is better for teaching you how to play the 25 t

I just presumed it was you stating your opinions on the ‘bad’ tap

It is just because of the meaning of "tap"; I was hinting at something that can drill into you, as what tap does. I am a mechanical guys, so I use taps.

Well, a lot of people don't have a clue what a tap is, or a dye for that matter. Used lots of them on my AMX 30 chassis, after it came back from the paint shop... lol...

So, I'm messing around right now, and I never played the Lorraine before, so I started on it.

 

This is a SWEET tank. Seriously. Speed, good gun, killer six-round clip. Played right, this tank can do some serious damage! I can't believe how much fun this tank is. Highly recommend. 

 

(The one thing- that ammo rack, man, and once it goes .... you're pretty much useless with the reload time.)

I heard that about the Lorraine. I am guessing the wet ammunition rack is maybe one of the equipment you have to install on this, combined with the appropriate perk.

 

I got lured into a trap by a light and his buddy came into my backside and unloaded his six pack, sending me back to the park...

I carry  a large repair and a small repair and a large med kit.    Fire seems to be pretty rare.  And you need the extra repair for ao racks.  IMO

Me too... large and small repair kit does the trick. Small first aid that's it.

I really like Lorr. 40 t. It’s pretty alike to Bat. Chats. Yeah - it’s bulkier, has little lower camo thus it’s easier target while still it doesn’t have any armor to speak of. But it has almost the same mobility (lower top speed and hull traverse but faster turret traverse and P2W ratio) and the same gun with faster reload (thus better DpM), better gun depression and better view range. It’s really underrated tank as a whole. 
Don't rush me, I'm waiting for the last moment!

I have unlocked both the Lorraine and the 50B, and I am almost finished with prepping a crew with four skills. Do you suggest I go Lorraine or 50B?

 

I have enough free Xp to purchase all the Lorraine packages, and to equip it. Same for the 50B; I have the Silver to purchase and equip it.

 

I am kind of miffed by the Mle 51, I have not yet found how to get it to work for me, so I am guessing the Mle 54 will be no different.

Despite I already have unlocked all TT tanks, I still haven’t bought and played 50B - collecting silver for the next T-X discount.

But I still play Lorr. 40t which is currently applicable for The Machine. I have all TT T-IX’s in the garage - I don’t sell them.

So 40t is one of my daily doubles tanks lately.

And I would say I like 40t more than AMX 50-120. 40t is more agile and it’s smaller thus it’s more difficult target while they both don’t have any armor.

As far as I see in battle 50B is like more of the same as 50-120.

 

And I think it’s somewhat the same for Mle. 51 and 54 - I’ll buy 54 maybe during the next T-X sale. But I feel 51 as just unsuccessful try to be a Conqueror. It’s almost the same but actually it’s worse in everything. And as far as I see in battle - it’s the same for T-X between Super Conqueror and Mle. 54. Plus again 54 seems for me as just more of the same as 51.

What I don’t like for the Mle. 51 is - despite its relatively good frontal armor it’s too unreliable and has too many weak spots and it rarely bounces shots in contrary of the Conquerors. Hull down it’s still too vulnerable - no enough gun depression and too big weak spots. And the side armor for both 51 and 54 is too weak for side scrape. 


Don't rush me, I'm waiting for the last moment!
