Commanders!

We’re now halfway through the month, which means it’s time to take a look at the mid-tier vehicles featured in our Top of the Tree. If you haven’t reached the last three tank destroyers of the AMX 50 Foch B family and their great autoloading guns yet, here are some tips to get them faster by playing the Tier V–VII vehicles the most efficient way possible.

All values below correspond to a 100% trained crew.

S35 CA

Main Characteristics:

  • Hit Points: 330
  • Top Speed: 37 km/h
  • View Range: 340 m
  • Hull Armour: 56/35/35 mm
  • DPM: 1,787
  • Dispersion: 0.38 m
  • Damage: 240/240/320 HP
  • Penetration: 135/175/45 mm
  • Reload Time: 8.05 s

This “bathtub” is known for its great choice of showerheads. If you can get past its weird look, the S35 CA is actually very fun to play, and quite effective, regardless of the gun it’s packing. Its stock boomstick is a very accurate 17 pounder, that you can replace for a hard-hitting 105 mm gun or a balanced 90 mm one. Three good weapons, all nicely complemented by a large and sometimes bouncy gun mantlet, but more importantly, a very wide gun traverse—a combination that most tank destroyers desperately need.

ARL V39

Main Characteristics:

  • Hit Points: 610
  • Top Speed: 42 km/h
  • View Range: 350 m
  • Hull Armour: 60/40/40 mm
  • DPM: 1,668
  • Dispersion: 0.35 m
  • Damage: 240/240/320 HP
  • Penetration: 212/259/45 mm
  • Reload Time: 8.63s

You’ve met the “bathtub” and now, meet the “radio“. Because of its large silhouette, crowned by a weird little turret, the ARL V39 can be tricky at times. It makes up for it with a large selection of guns, from a simple 75 mm to a large 105 mm. Our personal favourite remains the 90 mm DCA canon though, known for its great penetration values. Try them all to see what works best for you, but remember to play this one mainly as a long-range sniper, or a supporting vehicle.

AMX AC mle. 46

Main Characteristics:

  • Hit Points: 820
  • Top Speed: 50 km/h
  • View Range: 350 m
  • Hull Armour: 120/40/40 mm
  • DPM: 1,877
  • Dispersion: 0.33 m
  • Damage: 300/300/400 HP
  • Penetration: 232/263/50 mm
  • Reload Time: 9.59 s

Just like many other French tanks designed after World War II, this vehicle is actually inspired by a German classic, namely, the Jagdpanther. In-game, the AMX AC mle. 46 can rely on its mobility and sloped frontal armour, both unprecedented in the French tank destroyer line. When it comes to guns, this Tier VII vehicle can also use the decent 90 DCA canons, but its top gun is even more interesting. With 300 damage and 232 mm of penetration, the AC SA47 gun boasts the best penetration of its tier. A decisive advantage on the battlefield.
