With the new American tanks rapidly approaching the battlefield, we thought we'd share some more information about what to expect.

T21 looks like it could be a high tier T49. I might get it later on.

Just when I thought the French heavy tanks couldn't be more obsolete...

AMX 50 100 > T69.

I'm sure of it.

It feels the exact same as the T20 to be honest except under gunned because it get's worse mm

I would agree that the tier 8 & 9 French tanks are better but I'd take the 57 over the 50B.

T71 looks like a Tetrarch and AMX 13 75 got busy over in Europe, then immigrated to America the offspring hooked up with a local Chaffee boy, got busy and gave us...this. *presents T71*

As much as I hate to say this, but it sounded like I was listening to a robot and not a narrator. The "narrative voice" created a huge disappointment for me the moment I heard it speak. Oh, and the run on sentences!  :Smile_ohmy:

Anyone else but me find it funny when they said "high chance of ricochet" then proceeded to show about 5 holes right in the front of the turret lol.

Certainly wasn't the most glowing comments for the T54E1, as someone above noted.

Not the best way to get the horde looking forward to grinding through it...

I still want that T23 back....

Anywho. I'll probably touch these Tanks very late (As usual)....Seeing as I shifted my focus on Russian and German Tanks for now.... (I'm dedicated to multi-grinding American, German and Russian Tanks)

Hope it'll be a blast trying to Destroy these new Tanks though.

I'll look to use free xp to get the T71 as it was quite good on the test server. as for the others, I'll not bother to research or play them as they are not as good as what I already have in my garage.

The narrator is...disappointing. I'm not saying I miss Cave Johnson...but this guy is boring and the translation was at best pretty poor  :Smile_mellow:

Anyways, about the tanks. I might just stop at the T71. The Tier 8 tank isn't bad (basically a Pershing with an autoloader), but with only 4 shots I might prefer a regular cannon. More frustrating would be the T54....it has the lowest penetration of any Tier 9, and on your test I found it to be generally a poor tank. The second least mobile tier 9 medium (E50 is at least faster in a straight line, but still better than the British one), with the worst gun of any tank it's tier by far even when you consider the autoloader.

Tier 10 heavy looks good, but not enough for me to justify the frustration of getting to it. I wasn't very good with the Patton, so WHY would I play a tank with all the things I didn't like about it made even worse?
