big thanks to a little bird who sent me this! Remember the AMX Mle. 49 from the 9.12 patch? Well, its an French heavy tank, initially known as “Project 141”. The development started right after the end of WW2 since France required modern heavy tanks. Only existed in drawings and was intended as an FCM 50T replacement. And why am I typing about this? Well, this vehicle has been spotted circulating in the Chinese server, got some screenshots for you:
Basically, if you have wet dreams at night about having a French HT with armor, this tank is for you! Checked with some sources and there is a big chance that this vehicles will be coming to our servers but also don’t forget that the reason its in the Chinese server is because they don’t give a crap about game balance there (hence why the Chieftain Mk.6 is available there) so some statistic changes probably will happen before it arrives.
Small stats update:
– hull traverse nerfed from 35 to 28 deg/s
– terrain resistance nerfed from 1,3/1,5/2,2 to 1,5/1,7/2,4
This is something I definitely will buy.

Chinese server. Irrelevant on normal servers
I like how this guy doesn’t even have standard ammo loaded
with the level of pay2win players in Chinese server, to normalshell is a sin. especially when they have that ridiculously pimp Type 59G
The Chinese server is actually not that bad. Despite the prem tank spam and the weird battle meta, its very comparable to the NA server. The prem spam (not just Type 59s, but all of them) isnt bad because prem tanks are worse than the regulars, the meta is normal on a different server, and the Type 59G is tremendously rare, I’ve seen 1 in 1K games (it costs about 1000$ on a good day)
holy shit $1000? what is this, the Triad Special?
The hull armor is a bit useless. You’t angle it and the hull armor is horribly angled. Plus, they nerfed the hell out of the gun stats.
Angling it makes it immune to 200 or less pen. Your a tard if you think thats useless. Also its -10 depression means using just a little hill makes the hull immune to 250+ pen meaning T10 cant even pen your hull and your turret is now better than the easily overmatched T34…..This tank is godly, its only real failure is the 1500 DPM
Looks at the armor model… If you angle, it side frontal armor becomes considerably weaker. Not saying this tank is useless but the hull armor kinda is in some respects.
this tank is sale with 188CNY,and with a FCM36 Pak40 as a gift . F*** u KongZhong, and it’s going to sale Grille 15 just like Chieftain…
And what will those morons do, when Grille will replace Waffle and Chieftain will be introduced as a Top tank on a researchable line?
Will they simply f**k everyone who bought it for real money? Or will they leave the Waffle E-100 and FV-215B in game? 😀
Oh God the motion blur on this screenshots, why?! D:
I turn that crap off always, its annoying I know.
Looks great, it’s a tank we need to finish the AMX 50 timeline.
Has anyone got any win rate stats on the chieftain on the Chinese server? I’m dubious as to how unbalanced it is.
Being unbalanced is the reason is hasn’t come to us. I can still check if there are tools.
I want the KanonenJagdPanzer IV-V on EU
there is a HT VK 4502 P in chinese server ?? what is that??
It’s the VK 45.02 (P) A, or VK4502A as we know it more commonly.
ERRRRRRRRR the info on Status report is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO wrong
It has been NERFED big time since then
seriously right now it has a useless 1500 dpm ! anything worse than this at t8 ?
mobility is now piss porr toom WP/MT of 7.94
“Only existed in drawings”.
Like real drawings that we can see? Or imaginary drawings that WG claims to exist but fails to provide any proof of?

not sure what happened to my last comments but this thing has been massively nerfed eg it only has a dpm of 1500 and is veyr slow now…. it should be a very good tank. defiantly bad against t10s
ohh that was meant to say “shouldn’t” be a very good tank
Engine power/Top speed
All other gun values
All other armour
Traversing (normal for a heavy)
20mm hull deck (if tall enough you just shoot down on it)
40mm sides and rear to justify the existence of HE and piss on dreams of angling.
Still, who wants more pisstaking premiums which perform better than regular tanks.
