Those are some really crazing looking designs.  Looking forward to another nationality to shoot up!  Kinda digging the base color scheme on the Frenchies.  The AMX-50 looks cool.

I want both those G1s. Both of 'em. Right now. Oh MAN are these ever pretty designs!

(Yes, I am fangirling about French tank designs)

AMX 38 is cute like a little tracked robot with a cute little robot head!

Before, I wanted the G1 B, G1 R, AMX 40, ARL 44, and Bat-Chat 25t (yes, that's what I'm calling it).

Now...

I want to drive them so much more! I think I'm not the only one who can't wait to get these sweet looking tanks and start showing all the doubters that the French tanks deserve some respect.

Dangit, 7.1 seems so far away...

P.S. Thanks for posting the pics, Souroy.

Coo!  Coo!

I'm really excited for the French lineup, but man, the armor angles on these tanks look horrific.  Some of them have enormous lower glacis plates o.O   Of course, if they are like the M10 or M36, then that isn't so bad...

horrifically bouncy or horrifically ineffective?

Also, i'm very glad the french tree is coming out before the british tanks.  The frenchies have so much to offer game mechanics wise that I can barely contain my excitement and speculation.

Horrifically ineffective :(  Those enormous side skirts have me worried. Then again, armor isn't a huge factor in these tank's performance from the sound of things.

Of course, terrible armor or not, I'm still going to love these tanks, I think.


- EDIT -  I should point out that the armor configuration doesn't seem nearly as bad for the final few tanks. The second to last one looks like a nightmare to penetrate from the front (in terms of armor angles)

I'm drooling. Looks like the Frenchies can cook up some sexy designs after all, mm-mmm!

On reading the article, it seems pretty good too. 40mm of armor at tier II/III, 60mm of armor at tier III/IV.

90mm gun on the Tier VI ARL-44 combined with a 120mm sloped frontal plate, 76mm gun on the "workhorse" G1.

I'm getting more and more interested.

Oh man, that tank has the most smug, self-satisfied grin I have ever seen on an armoured vehicle.

A lot of them look highly trackable - people aiming for hull will accidentally hit tracks a lot.

The medium tanks look especially fearsome. High power gun, with revolver and high speed? B)

The AMX-12t looks almost like an RC car because of the cool antennae :P

Has anybody found the finalized tech tree yet?... I want to know if they actually did use any of Souroy's ideas...

I asked Overlord about it a while back. He said it (and the Soviet one) will be released "When they're finalized".
