War Thunder 1.75: Lorraine 40t

Good day ladies and gentlemen, continuing the daily dev blogs for 1.75 we have been shown the latest French tank to be added to the roster. The Lorraine 40t will take its place at Rank 4 in the French medium line and armed with its 100mm SA 47 7 round autoloading cannon it will be an interesting tank to play.

Things to take from the devblog is that in game the 100mm is going to have decent armour piercing capability, having the ability to pierce 220mm of armour at a distance of 500mm. This combined with an off road speed of 40km/h it will be an excellent flanking tank. However the devblog does tell us of some major weaknesses, the first of these is it’s armour, naturally a good armament and speed has to sacrifice it’s protection to maintain its manoeuvrability. The second major downside is the crew layout, which has 3 of the 4 crew stationed in the turret, thus any shells with explosive filler will easily knock the tank out with one well placed shot.

Overall it should make for interesting gameplay, requiring the use of flanking tactics and exploiting openings in the front line to get the most out of this tank. It will be a welcome addition to the game. As always stay tuned for the next one.

  1. 7 rounds? WoT sbould pick up on this. Kill two tier 10’s from full hp and then reload 2 mins.

  2. I personally don’t think autoloader gameplay is suitable for warthunder. Trading hp is one of the trait autoloader excell at, which is not possible in war thunder [of course I may be wrong].

    1. Autoloaders trade armor for burst damage and mobility which in War Thunder can work if you’re supported well enough. If anything the problem lies more so with the maps that don’t really cater to high speed hit n run style gameplay.

  3. I’ve been noticing this pattern with warthunder, it’s like theyre playing catch-up with all the tanks WOT has been adding

    1. Not really DIADTEC, for French tanks it’s different as WoT has already added all the iconic tanks like the B1 and S35 so naturally we are going to see many mutual tanks when it comes to tanks added, however in recent patches we have seen tanks that have no chance of appearing in WoT such as the MBT-70, Cheiftain mk 10, T-64, Swiftfire etc etc, also most of the tanks that WT are entering the game as standard tree rather than WoT’s focus on an ever increasing roster of Premium or replacement tanks

    2. They are adding french tanks. What did you except. This is real machine so why Gaijin shouldn´t add it?

  4. I like the Fact, that after all this years WarThunder has still better looking Tanks, better Sounds, better looking Maps, 3 games in one and as the cherry on top has much better Game Optimisation. I can play with High preset having the same FPS as on lowest with WoT.

    1. Thats odd, would u care to tell your specs?
      If i keep “shadows” down in WoT i can almost max out everything else with very good performance …
      War Thunder, or my vga-card that is, got a bit cranky when nearing high settings.
