Picked this thing up with some gold I got from a tourney and man it's great

I has ZERO armor and is slow as hell, but it packs a punch (great pen even with regular ammo) and has decent camo.

Even seeing 5's it is not a bad tank, I just wait till all the half dead tanks rush cap after my team gets rofl-stomped and clean house.

training my Foch crew in it to boot. Money (not mine  :glasses:  )well spent

It is a fabulous tank. If I don't pull three kills/triple damage, I have failed in this vehicle.

Great tank and like you said good gun and camo with great view range, but it's speed makes it pretty situational.

Definitley a good low tier tank for folks that like tds.

It really depends on the map. Sometimes it's ultimate seal-clubbing tank, other times it hasn't even made it up the closest hill.

On Province it's disgusting. I don't know how many times I've pulled Scout(!)/Top Gun with the FCM36.

It's a great tank if it doesn't have to move much, if your team succeeds to hold your flank, you can provide such effective fire.

Why this is a French Premium not quite sure, as its a german modification of the FCM 36 making it a variant of the Marder1.   But finally a low level French tank thats worth playing picked it up during a sale and so far seems rather solid when i need a break from High end grind.

Excellent td that any one should own. Pretty much a slower pre nerfed marder 2.

I absolutely love this tank, such an incredible machine, able to win matches on it's own at Tier III... it currently holds my record of 10 kills in a match. Awesome crew trainer too!.

I just picked one up today since it was on sale. I prefer the turreted US TDs but this FR Tier III TD is not bad so far. Est-ce de l'amour? Peut-etre... :blinky:

Nothing makes me smile more than being on top of the list on "Province" or "Prokhorovka". Had a 9 kill on Prokhorovka the other day and probably have gotten "Scout" and "Patrol Duty" medals together 5 or 6 times on Province.

i use it exclusively for the current 24/7 mission and usually walk away with about 350K credits at the end of it...Love it!

Great vehicle, very situational and map-dependent, though.
