Char Lourd AP58 (France, Tier-8, HT, premium)
Short name: Ch.Lourd AP58
After the end of World War II, French tank building actively used German developments. However, the problems turned out to be similar, and above all this concerned the combat weight of medium tanks, which corresponded to the heavy class. In the course of lengthy work, a final attempt was made to make an analogue of the AMX 50B within the design weight. It was called Char Lourd AP 58. The concept of this tank was close to the AMX 50, but without a swinging turret and with the lowest possible hull. But the weight of the project vehicle very quickly reached 60 tons, and further work was stopped.
