Bigger than the TOGII,  why not add this giant to game?

Imagine having a crew of 12

10 to push it

Commander to do everything important

A guy to steer

Arty would eat that thing alive. :arta:

 

Still, it would be neat to see that French giant brought into the game! I could see it as a tier 4-5 premium, depending on how good the main gun is. Apparently, the fire rate of the gun could reach up to 30 rounds a minute (as a field gun)....insanity. That fire rate reminds me of the little derp gun on the I-Go/Chi-Ro....except this thing would be much bigger.

Evidently it mounted a 75mm main gun and 4 Hotchkiss machine guns for anti-infantry

I looked up the main gun that the Char has, and it looks to be pretty effective. Old though....1897. Still, the fact that it could reach 30 rounds a minute with a highly trained crew is impressive. Imagine this beast bearing down on you, firing HE shells every 2 seconds. THAT is scary.

I can't see it being viable as a tier 5. They are very big, not so well armoured and equipped with a lower velocity 75mm gun. All the other tier 5 heavies would eat it for breakfast. There was some talk of upgrading them with 90mm or 105mm guns, but even then I think it has to be kept at tier 4.

It might be viable at Tier IV with a 75mm low velocity HE derp gun. However, being as large as it was with such boor armor, it would just be a snack for most tier IVs and probably at least a 1/3 of the tier IIIs.

I do like the dramatic pause it makes after going through the wall :)

Ammo capacity would be huge.

I'd say give it the 30 rpm 75 mm gun but at Tier 5, and with extremely poor penetration, maybe HE only. And it would be HUGE and slow, 20 kph max. Before you say that sounds terrible, remember that 75 mm HE alpha is 175, which times 30 is over 5K DPM. So it would have literally insane DPM, but nothing else going for it.

Nice, big, fat, juicy target.

The real sad thing about this tank is that even though it was over 60 (!) tons it had less armor than some WW2 light tanks!

 

That thing would have barely been competitive in WWI, let alone WWII!

It would just be a grosstraktor the star of a maus. 45 mm of frontal armor is okayish, but 15 mm of side armor is pathetic.
