What Can I say about it.  It not a friendly TD.  While mobile it armor is weak armor.  Gun ok but it uses 260 apcr.  Make it bounce or no pen alot.  Most tank just bounce the shell leading you to need fire more premium rounds. 

 

Tactical wise it very Limited.  If spotted you get Killed with in seconds no hope of survival.  Even the angle game it penned far to often.  With really weak armor Both Upper and Lower plate.  Side armor top and back easy to just do full damage t6 and up HE with just 40 MM's armor.

 

WG you really need to balance it to meta and play of the game.  Do in part to small maps and Map designed around tanks with turrets.

 

At best this tank need see only t9 or need be dropped a tier small debuff in mobilty maybe in pen.

QB called it a SU-122-44 that has eaten too many pies. Yeah i laughed!

 

Him and Circon came to the same conclusion rather quickly - it is nothing special.

Saw one in game today, once it was spotted that is. Seems this is another very high camo td akin to the Swedish tds. Cant seem to find it in the shop tho.

LOL it camo rating not true like alot TD that have to hit stuff your force move tank and your hide is next to Zero.  Making bad tank worse. But we are talking about WG who basicly have but abandoned PC version of tanks.

I appears to be gone from the shop.  Maybe it wasn't to go on sale until the 19th.

The Strv1 is a better TD IMHO  and the Chinese prem TD according to the comparison charts. That is why I am passing.

It was offered to me as a pre-purchase for having a premium account after signing into the game. It is a stealthy and wrecked my O-Ni with the large gun. I didn't see the price but probably around $50.

You can only buy the tank right now if you have premium time on your account. In order to see the deal in the shop you must be logged in and have premium time still active.

It's a sniping TD in a corridor meta. This tank seems really situational, I think I will pass on this tank destroyer.

I'm a sucker.  I do like it though, it has a good gun and mobility and its pretty "hidey" in the one game I rolled out tonight. I'll play it a bit more this weekend and help train up my Frenchie TD crews. Makes decent creds.

It also helps to look up review videos on tanks before you buy them.  There are several that say the armor is not reliable.  If it can pen t9 tanks with 260 pen, it can pen t10.  It's a poking kind of tank, if your getting spotted and wrecked right after firing, then your probably to close anyways.  It's a very mobile tank with no armor, when even try to angle your armor?  Just about all of the fast tanks for the French have no armor (minus the Foch and Foch B), this one is no different.

I was wondering why some people already have it before the 19th lol. Cheeky WG releasing the TD early only for those that have premium. That aside, Im kinda tempted to buy it the gun is nice meh armor but hey im used to glass cannons(grinded the whole Waffle E100 line and still driving the Scorp G). Also i need a French TD trainer too

Like the OP has stated it looks like a nice tank in a different meta. WG doesn't seem to understand how this corridor meta has effectively castrated any form of ranged play, which many tanks outside of TDs depend on to play effectively. I was a little excited because I felt like it was a bit of an alternate version of the e25 given the bragging about its stealth and mobility. But you figure one you get to tier 8-9 along side these tiny maps you really just need to be at the edge of draw distance to really hide effectively. I've been spotted in my WZ lt by a JT that was traverse at the very edge while not firing and I believe he was like one of 4 tanks 2 of which were completely on the other side of the map and one which has no reason to be present were I was. The spotting/stealth system seems more flip/floppy than a politicians "values" in this game. People really shouldn't need to keep large math equations to confidently feel hidden or prepared in a game. Within reason knowledge of the game mechanics should help with success but when that along with meta-gaming seems to be all that matters year after year you know you have a stale system.

I have to agree- this is another "sucker" play by WOT. Got me I'm ashamed to say. I should know better too since I bought a 59-patty! :( Anyway Gun is great but totally inadequate even at its own tier at the distance you have to play to survive. Camo is a bad joke- spotted from across the map regularly with a 3+ crew with full camo & BIA + vents and exterior camo. Sadly camo is all this thing has as a plus and once again what WOT says vs reality.... The chinese TD on the other hand is great. bouncy front plate, great gun with A+ accuracy for most chinese offerings and reliable pen even at tier 10

The CDA does well enough as a sniper, the trouble is that it doesn't have an easy time filling other roles when it needs to. Sometimes you have to get aggressive and brawl. Sometimes you get put into tight urban maps. Sometimes you get flanked and circled. CDA doesn't handle those inevitable scenarios well. And in retrospect, you could just grind a Charioteer and essentially get the same experience without having to pay real money, and with a turret as well.

0.26 dispersion full crew, equipment and consumables. Thats better than all tier 8 TDs, but in reality is far from it, don't buy it. Fake stats POS tank. Not a single dollar from me again WG.

The AMX CDA is a horrible tank. Useless in most situations. The alpha is ok, but as soon as you fire you are dead. It is not in any way an assault tank. 10 deg gun arc is horrible. Speed is good, which you will need to run away. Of course, tier 8 MM is really bad. I have full camo crew, camo on the tank, and BIA. With a 10 deg gun arc it makes camo pretty much useless.

 

DO NOT BUY THIS TANK. This is one of those purchases I truly regret.

I'm loving it, it's gun is great, excellent pen, alpha, accuracy, aim time and depression. Also it's  shell velocity is very good, making it really easy to hit moving targets. It's highly mobile, feels like an E25 with a big gun, good camo values and it's frontal armour will bounce shots fairly often, especially when poking over ridges, just don't rely on it. The only things I can say I don't like about it are it's limited gun arc and it's reload time which could use a small buff. I usually play it like a typical back line sniper early on but late in the game I often play an assault role, it's mobility and high alpha make it great for hunting down low health tanks.
