It has been confirmed that the Renaultr G1R is coming in the 7.4 patch. It is the only new tank being introduced that is not an arty, TD, or a premium.

A few things I'd like to point out:
http://cft2.igromani.../157317/G1R.jpg

This guy looks like he's getting the same stock gun as the BDR G1B, which is BAD.

Also:

When this guy is introduced, the only way to get him is through the AMX 40 [ungh]. The FCM 20t is NOT being introduced yet.

What do you think this guys stats are going to be? I'm going to get him regardless because I love tier 5 meds.

Do you think he'll get the 75mm Long 44? It seems a tad weak for a tier 5. The SA49 L/48 seems quite well balanced for a T5 med. The SA50 and 90mm DCA 30 are both way too much.

Does anyone have info on the armor specs?

Couldn't find anything concrete on the G1 R specifically, but Wiki has mentioned maximum armor for the G1 contract was 60mm across all prototypes.

As someone previously said:

I DUB THEE SUPERDUCK!

He'll probably get his own gun, 75 mm Long 40.  We might see a short barreld 90 mm in
HE only.  Apparently, B1 was supposed to get it's hull gun upgraded 90mm.  On the two
pictures of this guy I've seen so far, both of the guns have no resembalence to anything
we've seen yet.  A 350 Engine is given with the posibilty of a hot rodded 400 hp Renault
B1 Engine (YAY! WE MIGHT REACH 50 KPH NOW!).  He's definately an odd bird, but so
was the original Duck.  However, he's supposed to have an autoloader also because of
the semiautomatic firing system and maybe even superior view range to the M4 Sherman
and T34.  Even if he doesn't have an autoloader, I expect quick loadtimes plus accuracy
because he has gun stabiliaztion.

BTW, 60 mm is more then enough for Tier 5.  The M4A1 has 51 mm in the front and this
thing has 10mm less then the Normal Duck!  Too bad the better Turret is on the flat side
and the Hull isn't as curved as the AMX 40, but it should still be able to take on the job the
Duck had with some more flexability.

Looks cool. I'll probably play it a bit a couple times when it comes out.

Looks like it'll have the Long 44 as a top gun, (a decent gun), but it looks alot like the AMX 40 too me, and probably guessing it has decent armor.

Can't find anything about the armor/gun.
I did find the top speed of the G1R, 40km/h.

Or should we call it the Mother Hen?

Slower than I thought, but yeah that is one hell of a slope on its armor.

Hey I just noticed something.  All the Tier 1 G1 prototypes are T5.

This includes:

Renault
BDR
Ponlatowski

So does this mean the G1 L Premium will be Tier 5?

Yes, the G1L is going to [presumably] be a tier 5 premium medium. The G1P is going to be another non-premium tier 5 medium that stems from the Somua S35 and leads into the AMX Tracteur C 40.

I cannot possibly guess when they'll be released, but more than likely they'll be released together in the same patch, along with the S35, AMX M4 1948, AMX 65t, and a bunch of lower tier lights. I suspect the FCM F1 premium will also be in that patch.

As for the G1L, as long as they give it a decent 75mm gun with 100+ pen and reasonable accuracy it will be an okay tank at the very least. If it has well-sloped 60mm armor in the front and 610HP [like the Matilda, Ram and T-25] then it may really end up being something special.

I love the look of the rounded turret with the chasis on this tank! But unfortunately I think that they will use the ugly upgraded turret from the BDR...Bleh~ If it gets more armor, it's going to be slower and probably get a weaker gun. Not fun in my opinion! I played the AMX-40 and it was a brutal experience! Sure I got 60% win ratio with it but you spent most your time driving around trying to just keep up. So how much of it is me? Good tank to finish off with as its difficult for the enemy to kill you, but they can also run circles around you and cap. Not much kills and combat, just alot of driving... lol

The the G1R does seem a tad better, as most french tanks get better at around tier 5. But whether this one is a winner will be the question. Of course if it is too powerful it take away from the fun of driving other tier 5s...

My thoughts on the AMX 40 and the G1R:

The AMX 40 is a light tank that has taken a liking to buttered croissants, pastries, and other tasty French things and as such she (I think of French tanks as feminine) has put on a lot of weight. Now she weighs 20 tons, which means she's slow, bouncy, looks like a mass of bloated curves, and only reaches top speed when rolling down a hill. She's still kinda cute, though, and I even completed the recent scavenger hunt in mine, and I have come to like the tank to the point where I nicknamed her "Zoe". As long as she can get her wobbling butt to the battlefield, "Zoe" can devastate at her tier :Smile_great: . On top of that, she practically prints credits.

By comparison, the G1R looks like an AMX 40 that has joined Mrs. Obama's campaign to stop obesity and has been working out to try and get back in shape. It at least looks like it has lost the bulging side "love handles" of the AMX 40, which is good since they tend to get stuck on things. The top B1 engine would be nice, then the G1R will sprint by comparison to lower tier Frenchies. I think the gun should be something like what the AMX 40 has at her tier: slow firing, but pretty powerful even if the penetration is nothing spectacular. I'll definitely get this when it comes out, would be nice to actually have a moneymaking tier V medium for the French too.

that is one ugly duckling. The French sure know how to make disgustingly unaesthetic tanks.

Just found this:

At http://gamemodels3d....nault_g1r?armor

No idea how the managed to get their hands on the models for every French tank in the upcoming 7.4 patch, but you can at least check out a few lower tiered ones for free.

Any clue what that cannon could be?

60mm of spaced armor on the sides? Oh Hell Yes! And the giant tumor on top doesn't seem like its as disastrously weak as I thought.

As for the gun, I'm going to go ahead and guess that its the same 75mm SA49 L/48 as found on the AMX 12t, only without the autoloader.

JESUS CHRIST!  CONFIRMED FOR SUPER DUCK!

Hardly any weak spots on it for it's tier.  As for that cannon, it's gotta
be 90 mm.  It's not 75mm, that's for sure.

No, it can't be 90mm. Otherwise it would just be the same as the BDR G1B, only with better armor and less MM weight. The BDR itself would be relegated to complete, utter uselessness. Plus the 90mm gun would just be freakishly powerful for a medium at that tier.
