<I'm starting a bunch of comparisons between two tanks>
 

T57 vs AMX 50B

Sources: 

-Tanks.gg

-Tank-compare.com

-World of Tanks (duh...)

 

The two most famous autoloading heavies (sorry kranvagn). Which is better?
 

Firepower

Both have almost similar guns. 

-400 avg dmg for both

-165 module dmg for both

-257 mm of pen for 50b, 258 mm of pen for t57

 

However, what sets the t57 away from the amx 50 b is the (much) higher rate of fire (8.01 vs 6.55)

This allows for the t57 to rack up almost 600 more dmg per minute than the amx 50 b (3202.93 vs 2618.18, respectively)

However, the AMX 50B has a much higher ammo capacity than the t57 (56 vs t57's 36), meaning it has almost twice as much potential damage than the t57 (22400 vs 14400)

Winner: T57

While AMX 50B has a much higher potential damage than the t57, the t57 can farm some serious dpm and the 50B probably wont survive long enough to reach 22400, shown in our next category

 

Survivability:

Hull armor of AMX 50B: 170/30/30

Turret armor of AMX 50B: 100/30/30

Hull armor of T57: 228.6/44.5/44.5

Turret armor of T57: 152.4/127/50.8

Already judging from the armor you can tell the t57 has a better survivability.

The T57 also has 2250 hitpoints compared to the 50B's 2100, meaning it can take one more indirect arty shot (if that arty missed by a long shot...you know what? lets just says that the differnece isnt signifigant)

Its not helping that the AMX 50B has some trash turret armor, yet the turret is larger than the hull, and that the 50B is absolutely huge.

Winner: T57

The AMX 50B already has a reputation for having paper armor (a PZIC can pen the side armor with ites worst gun!! ALL THE TIER ONES CAN PEN IT WITH THEIR WORST GUN!!!), which isnt helping its case.

 

Mobility: 

You generally shouldn't think that a heavy would have good mobility (and they normally don't). But the AMX 50B proves otherwise.

The AMX 50B boasts a 65 km top speed and a 20 kph reverse speed, and with quick acceleration. The T57, on the other hand, only has a 35.4 kph top and a 12 reverse. It doesn't help how the T57 has worse traverse and has a 14.88 p-w ratio compared to the 50B's 19.29 p-w ratio.

Winner: AMX 50B

The AMX 50B, aside from having a reputation for paper armor, also has a reputation for some crazy mobility, for a heavy tank, leaving the T57 in the dust.

 

Entertainment:

The T57 racks up some serious dpm and has a faster reload than the 50B, ensuring players dont get bored as crap when running around to reload. However, the AMX 50B's trolly mobility and the fact it is one of the, if not the number one rammer in the game, overruns the T57's entertainment.

Winner: AMX 50B

It's too trolly not to say so

 

Noob-Friendly

The T57, in a lot more ways, is more freiidnly for new players than the AMX 50B, which requires quite some skill and understanding of the game before mastering.

Winner: T57

It teaches the game's components and understanding of the game much better than the AMX 50B, which is a weird, funky combination of light tanks and heavy tanks.

 

Overall Winner: T57

Unless you are a pro and have fought well over 10000 battles, the AMX 50B isn't for anyone without skill. However, even if you havent fought 10000 battles, if you are looking for a hilarious tank to play, the AMX 50B certainly fits the bill. But in general, the T57 is better tank than the 50B, able to bounce more shots and farm dpm

T57 Heavy is ever so slightly better in my opinion.

I love my 50B, much more than the T57. Everything about it is great IMO. But I do have a few more battles than most.

Not taking the gun handling into account in your firepower catagory is a big mistake IMHO, the 50b's is much better than the the T57's. The T57  is currently my only tier 10, and I don't really like it that much. It's great for sending a tier 8 back to garage every 30 seconds or so, but it is easily out-competed by every tier 10 heavy in a straight fight, and lacks the mobility to really pick its battles. Its DPM is awesome, but I feel like it has neither enough mobility nor armor to really make use of it.

I personally think the 50B is much better, it’s a lot faster, I know no armor but when does that matter any way . The thing that makes the 50 B better is the Aim time and the shell relaod, 2.5 sec relaod and 2.5 sec aim , means you don’t have to wait too long to take your shots. And that’s why I play the 50B all the time and very rare you can see me in the 57.

you need a meatshield. a 268 4, maus, e100, 705a, is7 or type 5 work very well
