I have never used or bought a French Tank.

 

What are the top 3 french tanks and how do they differ.  What Tier X French tanks would be worth grinding for and why?  Are any used for Clan Wars/Stronghold/etc?

French tanks aren't really used in CW besides the batchat... maybe the 50B.  The theme is that they have no armor but do have decent firepower.  It takes map knowledge and awareness to fully utilize them.  Not the best lines for newer players.

Top three French tanks:  AMX40,  UE-57, and the B1.   

 

The UE-57 is a must have for clan wars.

French tanks (tier 7+ on most lines) have some of the highest skill magnifiers in the game. Good players make them exceptional, below average players play horribly in them. Regular Joes like myself can't seem to do much more or less than an easy-to-play tank like the 140.

BC 25t.

AMX 30B.

AMX 50B.

 

30B is the easiest.

AMX30 and 30B are great tanks.I don't have the 50B yet but will be picking one up it seems like a beast  and is used in CW's I believe.The BAT is an acquired taste I think it's junk though  the worst gun handling of anything I've ever played out side a Chinese medium but to each his own.Tankers that excel in the BAT CHAT are willing to understand the advantages of that tank and do well with it.I have expectations of what a tank should do and won't accept it's short comings so I have to stick to good all around meta mediums cause I'm not "GUD" enough PFFFFF.

For Clan Wars, really the only French tank that is run on a regular basis is the BatChat.  The 50B does get used from time to time, but it's very situational. You'll also see the occasional Foch B, but it's rare.  
That said, all 3 of these tanks are boatloads of fun to play in pub matches.

Disagree. AMX 40 is what all the unicums clans use nowadays.
