Cost: 11,900 gold
Overview: The FCM 50t is like an AMX M4 1945 on steroids. This may not sound like a great way to sell this tank but it really is in all the good ways. Faster, more maneuverable, better DPM, and the aim time is much improved, as the 2 tanks basically share guns.
+Fast (51 kph, however I have gotten it up to 60 kph downhill)
+Good Pen (212 avg)
+Good DPM (1920)
+Preferential MM (tier 9 max)
+Trains French Heavy crews
-Module damage (ammo, fuel, etc. is fairly common)
-Note: no autoloader (just to be clear)
Play Style: I play mine like a medium tank, wolf-packing with other mediums, and/or as a flanker. You can snipe fairly effectively in this tank, accuracy and aim time are good. Do not expect any bounces from your armor but you will get a few odd ones here and there.
Moneymaking: Seems on par with the other tier 8 premiums, cheap ammo and good DPM help a lot as damage = credits.
Fun Factor: Very fun if you enjoy the play style.
Conclusion: If you are looking for a premium tank to train your French heavy crews and enjoy the fast heavy, flanker play style of the French heavies, this tank is for you!
Crew Skills and Equipment:
1. Repairs + 6th sense
3. Either repair or recon for the commander, then snap shot, smooth ride, camo for the rest (maybe the safe storage just in case)
4. Camo + clutch braking
rammer, vert stab, vents
Also, to note, the gun depression is fair to good at -8 degrees
