Lorraine 40 t To be Replaced



just a little update the Lorraine 40 t is planned to be replaced by the Bat.-Châtillon 25 t AP, according to Russian sources.

The development stopped in the pre-project stage and all advancements made were used during the development of Batignolles-Chatillon 25t.

    As if the Lorry needs to be replaced? It’s just the same situation as the Aufkl Panther, too many people lacking the ability to learn how to play it, so they start to whine for a replacement. Same goes with the new big gun on the SU-101.

      But SU-101 had that 122mm on the start… then they took it to that tank, then they gave it back… what the problem? I just think, they just adding new OP tanks to the game and not ballancing the old ones… 1390 is unchanged from being announced in the game, but after the time, Ru and T-54l came, and nothing were done to ballance T8 lights. Both american T7 lights are much better then 1390. And then there comes whiners about “I just buyed this super stronk tenk and I was killed by a f…. autoloader, delete it pls pls pls”… Its like having diamond on rusty chain…

    Wargaming really needs to stop replacing tanks I’ve come to know and love. You’re isolating your fanbase when you remove tanks simply because you can, not because they’re OP or some other nonsense.

    2.22s between shots, 3s aimtime …..

    • Pikolo says:

      Nothing out of the ordinary. Autoloaders aim slower than they reload, the exception is bat chat 155 58, which aim and reloads for 5 s

      • Wulfy says:

        And the skoda T50. Also aimtime isn’t exactly how fast it takes to aim in from full dispersion, its how long it takes for the reticle to reduce to 1/3 of it’s size

    This is terrible as a start. WarGaming has given this tank the same bad aim time as the AMX 13 90 (3 seconds) so you have to pause between shots to fire accurately. Then they gave this tank WORSE dispersion (.40 versus AMX 13 90’s .38 and .35 for the 40t). Couple that with only 380 meters view range versus 400 for the 13 90 and 40t. I don’t know about others, but if they replace my 40t with this, I won’t be playing it (not that I fight my 13 90 or 40t much either).

    What I would prefer WarGaming to do for the French line is introduce a proper heavy tank – something I can use my skilled FCM 40t crew in.

    The worse 13 90 is replacing the 13 90’s upgrade at tier 9. GG, WG. GG.

    If they bring this tank as replacement for the lorraine 40t I realy start to loose confidence in WG. Replacing a rather weak tank with a totally terrible tank. Great idea WG. They have hired bad staff that obviously never playes the game.
    In patch 9.14 they nerfed the effective frontal armor of the centurion 7/1 by over 20mm without any notification btw. Well done, cripling a good and balanced tank.

      I don’t get it the lorr 40t is my favorite but good thing I’m 25 thousand away from the 25 t because I will not put up with that shit I mean i love this tank with a bleeding passion so fuck that I’m going to miss the lorr :, (,,, #wontforget

    Saw that coming.

  11. Xee says:

    So much hate for totally irrelevant tank, which is sold the moment BC gets unlocked. Just as if you mourned 50/120.

  12. FInally. lorr right now is OP af. this thing is actually balanced.

    250mm of penetration,with premium ammunition?! At tier 9?! What a joke.

    This would hardly be a competitive tier 8 med, not to mention tier 9 😛

    It has to be a hoax, this is absolutely garbage.

    This is such bullshit.
    I love the lorraine
    Why would they swap it with this piece of shit?

  17. Dictator says:

    3 second aim time? I can see 2.5 or something. 0.40 accuracy is fully understandable because it’s a French medium. But, 3 seconds aim time, that is a complete joke. I’m sure these aren’t the final statistics yet… please… PLEASE!

  18. Lorraine guy says:

    I love my Lorraine and hope it stays in the game.

  19. SNA Lord Reaver says:

    hope they will keep lorraine 40t as optinal path to tier 10 bat chat
