9.16: Somua SM

The tank reappeared again in the game files. It’s going to be a tier VIII premium heavy tank. Tests by Russian supertesters have shown that the vehicle is still suitable for the game, even with the new mechanics.

French heavy tank, presented by the competing designers as an alternative to the AMX 50. Work on it began in 1946 but the prototype was not developed until October 1951. The design uses German technology in the field of AFVs: it is equipped with a 100 mm gun with an automatic loading system installed in the oscillating turret. The tank was tested from January to July 1953, but with no promising results. As a result, the project was abandoned in favor of the AMX-50.

  1. So, they recuded the clip size from 6 to 5 what reduces the burst from 1800dmg to 1500dmg. Also the aimtime is worse now.

            1. How about you tell me where you live so I can call the police on you?
              I am pretty sure they wouldn’t find just a few kilogramms of cocain and meth, as well as hookers you kidnapped, how does that sound?

              But seriously, tell me your address so I can call the police on you.

                1. What’s the difference? If you flatout call me retarded for having a personal opinion, then why should I bother looking at anything with a grain of salt in mind?

                  In fact, why should I bother with anything, since, as you told me, I am retarded?

                  Oh, but wait. Child psychology tells us that one kid calls the other demeaning names because they are either afraid or jealous of said other kid.
                  In this situation, since you clearly showed how much of a child you are, I can only assume that you are jealous of my greatness AND afraid of my might.

                  But I am a generous god, I will let it slip this time.
                  Though I suggest you think about something.
                  Don’t try to compare one thing to another if you don’t even know what the others say when explaining their side of the equasion.

                  1. Wow you seem very smart, taking the insult of “retard” literally, then telling me not to falsely compare 2 different things despite me doing no such thing, when in fact the person who did exact that was you by comparing a common fetish with rape. You certainly seem almighty and great in this comment section when you fail to understand basic human interactions, going well over the top when someone tried to joke around with you. I’m certainly jealous of how much of a Sperglord you are.

                    Seriously, have you read back what you said in this thread? Go and read it all, then try to argue that you’re not on the spectrum. It’s either that or you’re 12, tops. Or a Tumblrina, thinking that BDSM supports the patriarchy or something, which the comment “I don’t even” hints to. Enlighten me.

  2. its seems like their trying to balance 40 degrees of gun dep but their doing it wrong in my opinion. instead of just giving it an absolutely horrific shell reload just add about 2 seconds to the full reload and a 2.4s aim time. having a shell reload that long just defeats the purpose of the tank and the opportunity for double tracking will be much smaller. its already losing a shot of damage it doesnt need any other balancing factors. i think their just nervous about putting in a premium autoloader and having it be too powerful. instead of that they seem to want to make it a bad tank. i think this will be the very first ht premium autoloader in the game.

  3. This game doesnt need more autloaders for sure. it has too many of them alreaddy, roughly 50% of tenks are autonoobloaders.

    1. thats a pretty big exaggeration id say but french autoloaders at least can be easily taken down in a 1 on 1 if your able to make it miss 1once or twice or bounce then its screwed american and czs not soo much but they have their own weaknesses like the czs have no armor they can never get troll bounces that often with the only exception being the tier 9 but even bounces off that are rare. while the american autoloaders of tier 9 and 10 at least are just really slow and cant relocate well and below tier 8 suffer from lack of hp and low damage out put while tier 8 itself is very random in terms of where the gun hits and misses a lot even at close range.

      how id summarize them would be the french do best at range where their large profiles matter less and they can abuse their magazine reload being longer than their aim time so every shot will be at max accuracy. the czs are all about quick damage out put and running away to another flank to get some damage out there while being exposed for the smallest time possible because if their exposed too long theyll get torn apart. while americans are best up close and personal where they cant miss and can get damage out fastest and pull back behind allys as well as still being able to bounce shots from time to time.

    2.

  4. As i recall one of WG idiots answered to the question “lorr 40t tier 8 prem ?”

  5. The French line has been officially dead for 4 years. This simply adds to the proof of that.

    AMX 30B was supposed to have a far more indepth line, so that doesn’t count either.

  6. Why do people complain? The the vk45a has 120mm frontal armor, less sloped and much less pen and same damage, and that is a regular tier 8 HT.

    1. Nope, this is more of a carbon copy of the Tiger II chassis with a french oscillating turret. And it’s further proof that the regular French tech tree is dead.
