Another Sherman is now in supertest and it is the M4A1 FL 10. It will be a tier 6 french premium medium tank. It's a Sherman (duh), but with a AMX-13 turret and auto loader 75 mm SA 50 tank gun (4 round clip)

Excerpt from source website:

It melds together American and French engineering concepts, being a classic Sherman but with an oscillating turret and an autoloader.
The M4A1 FL 10 has good mobility, and though its gun can’t boast high alpha it has a four-shell clip. The autoloader allows for very comfortable play, emptying and reloading promptly, gauging up the damage-per-minute parameter. The crew consists of four people.
Though French, it’s a Sherman still—so please play it cautiously: the large size and the average protection are still here. Yet, the gun of the M4A1 FL 10 lets you dispatch a single enemy within seconds.

 What do you guys think, post your comments below

I wonder what original tank has the most "Clones" developed to increase the revenue flow.

 

Pershing? Sherman? IS?

Probably the Sherman has the most identical clones. 

Sherman:

  • Easy 8
  • Fury
  • Loza
  • Thunderbolt

While the others are very similar they are not exact clones. 

Pershing:

  • Pershing
  • Eagle 7

IS:

  • IS
  • IS-2B
  • IS-2M(odern)

Now if you want to include functionally the same.

M26:

  • Pershing
  • T25 Pilot
  • M46 Korea
  • Eagle 7

M4:

  • M4
  • Sherman III
  • Loza
  • Fury
  • Thunderbolt
  • Easy 8
  • Jumbo
  • M4 (Un)Improved

IS:

  • IS
  • IS-2
  • IS-2B
  • IS-2M(odern)
  • KV-122

If it enters the live server in decent enough condition to be nominally acceptable in tier 6 Strongholds Detachments... I will get one to train French crews by playing it in Strongholds.

I'm fine with it, say what you want about clones, no Sherman  drives 105kph, or has an aimbot, or 300mm of armor.

From the stats it's got pretty bad gun depression and elevation, that's odd considering all the Shermans i have are good hill tanks.......

I was looking at the hull/turret thinking the angling and hull should work real well then saw a -6 depression. I'll actually have to see it in game but somehow selling this as a Sherman doesn't play that well.

A bigger gun requires more room to move inside the turret and to provide clearance to allow for recoil. If it uses the same turret ring as the M4, there's only so big the turret can be, limiting travel of the gun inside the tank.

Sound reasoning but WG finds room and ever more depression on any tank it wishes - the joys of a pixel inventory.

Can't wait for the Israeli Sherman M-51 with the 105 mm Modèle F1
