Featured Premium Tanks

FCM 50t

Take the FCM 50t if you're looking for a French tank that can aid your transition from medium to heavy tanks. This Tier VIII heavy runs at a maximum speed of 51km/h and can provide you with the familiarity of a medium tank's speed. On the plus side, it has a decent gun that penetrates 159-265mm of armour. The tank can put up a good fight with excellent aim time, accuracy, and reload time.

One of the tank's drawbacks is its low damage for its tier. The large size makes the tank bad at performing sneak attacks or taking cover.

Pros:
  • High top speed, combined with quick acceleration
  • Excellent tank traverse, can turn on a dime
  • Great penetration, better than even the Panther II
  • Good credit maker, due to the high DPM and accuracy combined with cheap ammo costs
  • Great view range
  • Great rate of fire, when used with trained crew/BiA/Rammer
  • Decent gun depression/elevation
  • Good accuracy
  • Special matchmaking that makes Tier IX the highest it can get against, allowing it to penetrate most tanks it faces
  • Excellent tank for support on medium wolfpacks, much like the other high tier French heavies
  • Great speed combined with relatively high weight makes it good for ramming, especially versus medium tanks
  • Large tracks can soak damage fairly reliably. When turning corners, you can make enemies shoot your tracks
Cons:
  • Average armour for a heavy, though very good compared to tier 8 mediums
  • Giant silhouette, many forms of cover are not particularly effective, and artillery has no problem hitting you
  • Low alpha damage
  • Prone to module and crew damage
  • Priority target for artillery
  • Ammorack can be damaged easily, safe stowage skill for loader or/and wet ammorack equipment is recommended for use

 


 

FCM36 PaK40

The FCM36 Pak40 is a tier 3 French tank destroyer. Its 180HP is higher than average for a tank destroyer because of thick hull armour. This tank destroyer can absorb damage well too. Offence-wise, shots from this machine pack great armour penetration capabilities at 74-123 mm. Combined with a good rate of fire (15.92 rounds/min) and accuracy, you get a very lethal and powerful tank destroyer in your arsenal. The FCM36 Pak40 works best against targets that are slow or motionless. So, blast away at those happy campers, dealing a whopping 83-138 HP of damage per shot, when your team members feed you with enemy locations.

However, like most tank destroyers, its speed limit is slow (24 km/hr). Keep an eye out for good hiding places to avoid detection.

Pros:
  • Good armour
  • Good penetration and rate of fire
  • Good accuracy and aim time
  • Excellent view range
  • Good gun depression
Cons:
  • Poor engine power and top speed
  • Narrow gun arc
  • Poor signal range
  • Low ammo capacity
