French Superheavy tank line confirmed?

NOTE: THIS IS A FAKE! SORRY FOR MISLEADING.

Something very interesting I found out today:

I was bored this morning. I was surfing on NA forums, and ended up going into the main website. When i checked the media section, the tech trees pics were updated to contain T10 lights, only me to notice something weird on the french tech tree:

Obviously I was VERY confused. When I checked the page again about a half hour later, it was gone. For some reason they reverted EVERY updated tech tree image back to the ones they were before updates, kinda lazy way but they wanted to make sure that no other s@$t got left there, I guess. Now, looking at this, it looks like they accidently put in a picture that not only contains new LTs but also a full French superheavy line up to tier 10.

I was really, really unsure if this was true, even if it was on the official site. So I ended up contacting my friend, who also plays WoT and knows how to datamine things. I went in and visited him and I asked him to datamine SB and test servers. Nothing was found from the test, and there wasn’t anything weird on SB either, until we noticed something weird along the modules folder:

F83_SEAM_220tonne1_cannon_de_164mm_mle1893
F83_SEAM_220tonne2_2x_hispano_925
F83_SEAM_220tonne3_SEAM_220t
F83_SEAM_220tonne4_SEAM_220t
F83_SEAM_220tonne5_ER_70

Those seem to be data for modules of tier 10 vehicles. Nothing else was found, the tank itself wasn’t in the game data, so those must be leftovers that were accidently left there.

So what it looks like is that WG is actually planning to introduce the French superheavy line at some point. Given that there is already data about tier 10 existing, I expect them to reveal some of them soon.

    1. Prank or not, it certainly IS intersting.
      The frog superheavies are one of the most bizarre tanks ever made, so I would love to see (and most importantly, KILL) them.
      Nothing wrong with that, don’t you think?

  1. Hahaha if you thought Type 5 Heavy was bad already ; this 220 tons tier X seems to have a 164mm gun, aka the biggest gun of any heavy tank, just under the mighty JPZE100 and FV183. Now may they just give it a nice and broken HE shell so we can be back to the good old arty days except now other classes will have more HE-RNG than arty itself.

    Because let’s face it arty is OP, that’s why we give other classes the same calibers of guns 🙂

    WG plz…

  2. Assuming this is in fact real, holy shit the Char 2C Bis would be ridiculous at tier 5 with the 155mm howitzer.

    Also, does anyone know what the tiers 9 and 10 are supposed to be? I was able to find stuff on the rest of the line, but not those.

    1. The SEAM 220 was idea of massive superheavy that would be divided into two parts for easier transport. It was supposed to be 12m long and 5m wide.

      I didnt know what FCM CDF was at first either, but i got told on the topic about it later. Apparently CDF stands for “char de fortresse”, which is apparently some kind of continuation project of FCM F1. It has 135mm or 155mm gun on the hull and 90mm on turret.

      Designs of neither tanks doesnt exist though, atleast to public, so we can expect these to be prettty..well, unhistorical.

      1. Huh, so they were real proposals? Well, I guess that makes them more historical than the WTF-E100, though that’s an admittedly low benchmark.

        It’s too bad that this line doesn’t have the other AMX 50 and M4 projects, though.

    1. Tanks that are available for “limited time only!” don’t show up in any of the “tech tree” diagrams, i.e. 59 Patton, M4 Rev, KJP, Object-252, etc.

  3. FCM F1 at tier8? Ok it’s a fake.

    Just for reference, one wooden model was actually built, and it was designed around 100mm of armor (almost unangled), a 47mm frontal gun and a 90mm gun on a larger back turret.

    Even if you including the possibility of multi-turret and magically upgun the tank, the biggest guns you could hope for are a short 75mm gun in the front (useless at tier8) and MAYBE a short 105mm in the back turret. And that’s with fudging with the internal bits so everything would clip inside other objects, were they rendered.

    If that was on a very fast and zippy tank, I could say why not, give it a try.
    But this thing as big and slow as a Maus, but with literally half the LoS armor and no armor angling to speak of.
    It would be beyond trash.
    It would make the stock ARL grind feel joyful.

    1. They probably will end up throwing the history out of window and overbuffing the armor layout and giving it much more powerful guns to fit tier 8. Its not like they havent done it before; i mean, just look at VK 4502 B. In reality, it had so thin armor that it would be sub-par for tier 7 heavy, but they uparmored it to level where it is one of the most heavily armored heavy…in tier 9. And gave it 128mm gun even though biggest gun it could mount was 88mm.

      I agree that FCM F1 at tier 8 was probably most confusing part about the tech tree, but i guess there are not any other candidates.
