OP, think about what you asked.

No, really. Think about it.

Do you honestly believe the devs would implement a clearly superior line of SPG's than the other nations have?

I believe  the post author is referring to the French SPG since this is posted in the In-Game Vehicles/French/SPG section.

Plus it is worth finding out if French SPG's will have some sort of an advantage over the others(SPG) if you are waiting to start a SPG.  i.e: Faster load, speed, accuracy, etc.

Well, nobody knows, really. Yeah, some of the devs. But the vehicles are still very much being worked on, so that's subject to change as well.

Judging from the Alpha tree, at least a couple of the SPGs will have craaaaazy huge armour. At least 2 of the French SPGs are based on modified versions of the B1 bis chassis (for example the ARL 39), meaning they'll have hull armour in the vicinity of 60mm.

There will also be a few vehicles based on WW1 tank chassis (can't locate names here, but they exist) which will have terrible armour but weapons like 270mm mortars and other hugely oversized guns.

Also, the Tier 8 SPG has a turret.

That's all I can remember off the top of my head about the peculiarities of French SPGs.
