The French line is weird. Most of the tanks in this game are from the range between the first world war and just after the second—1918-the Fifties and early Sixties. 

We don't think of it as the heyday of French armor because of the second world war and yet, in the game, you can still find things. One of those things in the Hotchkiss H35. If you're into the lower tiers, you have to check this thing out. It's slower than hell, but it's got 40 MM of armor everywhere and a low-alpha gun that aims like a laser-pointer. 

I've been playing it on the proving grounds and although its speed can keep me from mopping up as much of the enemy bots as I might in a faster vehicle, I've gone through some sessions with multiple kills without losing a single hit point.

If you want to learn the heavy-tank tactics of "angle your armor and keep your foot on the gas," this might be the low tier tank for you.

So good in fact that there's a German version of it in the game that's even MORE OP.

last patch I played mine publicly on mittengard, a tetrarch spun me around and rolled me over as I was going down hill, I landed with my under belly towards the enemy...

they shot me down to 12 HP before the tet rolled me back over, I then proceeded to get steel wall and blocked over 1300 damage and got 6 kills after successfully 

navigating to the town... H35 is dope af...

Why in heaven's name did the Tetrarch roll you back over?

Ah, interesting, but I don't remember the last time I saw the tank you mention in the premium ship while the H35 is just there, literally for the asking—for a tiny amount of Free XP and the cost of the tier I tank before it. 

I think I might come to love the thing soon. So far the only thing bad about it is it's not on the same line as the ELC.
