Howdy Tankers,

 

I've always been fascinated with the French "Sherman Style" Medium Tank, the M4A1 Revalorisé.  I've seen some very purple players use it quite effectively in Front Lines which made me start thinking about getting it - and it's currently discounted down to 6,120 Gold (15% Off Right Now).  If I can scratch up the extra Gold to get it, I'm just wondering...

 

Is it WORTH it?

 

Any assistance you can provide would be greatly appreciated!  Thank you for your time and attention.

I am not very good in any of my tanks, but I think it is. It packs a punch!

Seems to me it would be played like a Hellcat. I’d love to get one for rental to try it out. That gun hits hard.

It's a paper medium with 10 sec reload and limited mobility. Worth it? Not really...Maybe if you can handle/enjoy it's gameplay.

It's definitely a HEAT-slinging medium-range support tank.

 

Expect less-than-average mobility (though not as slow as the SP), mushy acceleration, and a 10.5 second reload

 

Turret traverse not much better than the Hellcat.


I cannot recall seeing any with more than one MOE, but I'm sure that someone has one somewhere.

It's decent. The gun's velocity is really high so you don't have to lead targets, although you do have to let it aim a bit, it's a little derpy. The armor won't bounce anything, but you have a decent amount of hit points. You'll probably enjoy it if you like paper TDs. It plays a bit like a Charioteer, I'd say.

I will simply put it this way bud: I fired 3 shots and scored well over 1 K damage on 3 Tier 10 tanks and that's the first time I have played with that thing is more than 2 years.  All 3 shots were frontal shot to, BTW.

It is worth it, slapping tier 10s for 400 hit points doesn't stop being funny.

I think it's a good tank. The reload is a bit long (10.57 Second reload on mine), but it hits hard and the shell velocity is great, so no real need to lead your shots. Just remember that it's a tier 5 tank that just happens to have a tier 8 gun.  So it's best to play it like a sniper medium or a TD.

It's a fun tank, not as good as some other tier eight medium, but not bad,

The best I've seen it played is full TD mode. Binocs, camo net, full camo crew. Play it like the Skorp. Big gun with some mobility.

I really like mine and do well in it. One of it's perks is super cheap high alpha ammo. This makes it a really good credit earner in addition to the positives mentioned above.

I don't think you'll go wrong with it, but as many have said it comes with some downsides. Playing like the German Skorpian is the best advice. Gun 'n Run (well, walk fast).
