AMX Canon d’assaut de 105 – Upcoming Tier VIII French TD Pictures & Initial Stats

Posted by WG:

„From Supertest today, we have the Tier VIII French TD AMX Canon d’assaut de 105

It has approximately 200 mm armour, but not that good one due to a lower front plate and overall vision devices on the top that have significantly weaker armor.

What are the pros of this TD? Its firepower (the vehicle stands out with its accurate gun), good stealth due to its low profile, and also excellent dynamics and maneuverability characteristics.”

Initial stats:

Tier: TD-8
HP: 1000
Max speed/Min speed: 55 / -18 km / h
Hull turning speed: 28 °/s
Horizontal gun turning speed: 26 °/s
View range: 360 m

Hull armor: 100 / 40 / 30 mm

Alpha Damage: 320 / 320 / 515
Penetration: 260 / 320 / 53 mm
Reload time: 12,5 s
Accuracy at 100 m: 0,3
Aiming time: 2,0 s

    1. are you telling me that WG are actually making a tank that follows the historical values?

      Maybe this whole fiasco recently has actually opened the eyes of the balance team… fingers crossed

      1. i really hope so.
        I wish they fixed everything SirFoch listed in his rant video, especialy removal of prem ammo since they can get way more money if they just add eye candy stuff in the game for prices that wouldn’t be too high.

  1. Dev 1: Should we fix the worst line in the game, like people have been asking us to do for years?

    Dev 2: No comrade. Lets just release another tier 8 premium! For this terrible line that we still haven’t fixed! That’s just as good as fixing the line right? People won’t be mad right?

    1. Maaaaybe the finally have plans of buffing the line.

      Also, this is first crew trainer for the line that isnt tier 3 that you cant even get anymore, so there is that.

    2. there’s still a chance, there’s this french site with a bunch of drawings of “cannon d’assault”-like TDs, if they are real WG has enough to choose from

  2. So… It’s Tier 8.

    I bet it will be a premium. And with WG’s current tendency, you’ll see the cupola and rangefinders won’t have a hitbox, will be made of spaced armor or something in the taste. :P

      And I bet you did not even read the article ; otherwise you’d know that yes, it is a confirmed premium (why would it not be, no new line coming), and that no, the armor is not good, mainly because of the parts you presented which will be the opposite of strong, and also because it is 100mm armor very angled, but it’s still too thin to be strong against HE.

      1. First, I did read the article. And probbably better than you , unless you signal me where the hell you have seen the word “premium” in the text. And if you read carefully what I wrote about the hitbox, you might notice a “:p” smiley, which si à common icon added at the end of sentences meant to be funny, ara jokes.

  3. This TD is 2 years too late, the casemate train is long gone plus french TDs are prolly least popular of the rmaining bunch of turretless turds (for a good reason).

    Also the parameters (dmg, reload) would be better fitting to T6.

  4. Last half year is just about adding more T8 premiums. There is like new T8 premium each 1-2 months. With such speed they plan to have 20-30 new T8 premiums in let’s say 2 years? And whatabout another two years, another 20-30 premiums? You know cashcow will die if milked that hard

      1. It is a 105mm caliber so the damages are probably correct. However it has the reload of a 128mm gun… And THIS might be a fail from WG that even the insane pen and accuracy cannot justify.

        As the comment below says, SU-101 at same tier with same caliber has half its reload.

        1. So the fact that the pen values are exactly the same as the AMX 30’s 105mm is a coincidence?
          The fact that the gun model is exactly the same as the AMX 30’s 105mm is a coincidence?
          The fact that there isn’t a single 320 alpha 105mm in the French tech tree?
          The fact that a 12.5s reload doesn’t match up with 320 alpha at all?

          Forgive me if I don’t think 320 alpha is “probably correct”

  5. Alpha dommages: 320/320/515
    temps de rechargement: 12,5s

    SU-101:
    Alpha dommages: 320/320/420
    temps de rechargement: 6.42s

    Hum……………………LOL!!!

  6. Looks like they are actually listening.

    They apparently want to actually make it balanced and start with it very carefully. It certainly is terrible atm, but rather too weak than too op

  7. Well this thing has a strong HE.
    It has shit DPM for a tank destroyer ; but anything with bad armor will be wrecked by it..

  8. Doesn’t look bad, but I’d rather get the T-103 over this – bigger boom and has a turret with decent armor.

    Like

  9. If I could make myself play French TDs (and I do like fixed-gun TDs) I might be interested in this.

    Still deciding whether I like the UDES enough to buy the Strv. S1.

    Like

  10. Yeah,we need this new premium Td,because besides having very few tier 8 premium tanks,we all want to grind up the french TD line and enjoy the glorious 155,and why would we ever buy STRV S1 over this thing when all S1 has going for it is Dpm,alpha,camo,mobility,penetration…….
