Moments before I read the first topic about the T57, I thought it was the T57 artillery which confused me.

I found them off an official Russian world of tanks sight.

These are in game screens.

I would assume they are going to make a American heavy 2nd line and an American 2nd medium line.

There has also been images of a T54 American Medium.

Something about it screams like 150/100/100 and the turret will have no armor what so ever. Looks a lot bouncier then the 50B by a long shot though, can only hop those are some very solid pieces of metal.

frontally it looks like a drone from a C&C game, no hatches or slits whatsover
It's gonna be exactly the way KV-5 was before R2 was discovered

T57 was also a tank prototype. T54 is not T-54.

The T54 is both a Russian and American designation for a tank. lol

Though the American Tank has not yet come out.

Also the T57 is a SPG and a Heavy Tank both American.

The T57 will have an 8 round autoloader for its 120mm gun. 3200 potential damage per canister. The T58 will be ridiculously OP even if introduced as a tier 10 TD, it has a 6 round 155mm autoloader, which can one clip 2 IS-7s with lucky rolls.

This for real?? We are really going to get these tanks? Or is DJ just trolling us??

T57 has the M103 hull, so I know it will be a big bucket of butter...cant imagine the turret armor is anything...this is the US French line after all...

Atleast the US French tanks will have good depression and elevation over the French.....those bigger turrrets will be nice..

But just like the M103, we will have to wait until 2017 for those to be released then nerfed into oblivion by WG>...

DPM isn't a good indicator of ability for auto-loaders. I've heard that the intra-drum reload is 4 seconds, so it would only get off two shots for every shot from an IS-7. With such a long reload between shots it is going to play much different than the French auto-loader tanks. Sure it will still on-clip other tier 10 heavies, but it's going to lose at least 50% of it's HP if it's in a peak-a-boo or head to head slugfest. Plus I'm sure the inter-drum reload will be long enough that the surviving enemies will have plenty of time to kill it before it reloads. I also heard that the tank will be limited to 24 rounds. The batchat is currently limited to 30 rounds and I've run out of rounds in that several times.

However, a platoon of one T57 and two 50B's/Batchats will do some major damage. Send the T57 in first to take a hit and dish out two, while the french tanks move to the flanks to finish the enemy off. This platoon could finish off 3-4 tanks in about 20 seconds.

Interesting a slow and weakly armored tank. Usually they make slow tanks with lots of armor. My guess is that they will give it more speed than the stats you listed, or give it the most HP in the game.
