For the Record: AMX Chasseur de Chars Characteristics
Hello everyone, in patch 9.6, new French premium vehicle arrived to the premium shop – the AMX Chasseur de Chars, AKA AMX CDC – and there’s a post on Russian portal, describing the vehicle in detail. The characteristics of the vehicle in the article are presented as such: Hitpoints: 1400 Maximum load: 37,8 tons Hull traverse: 40 deg/s Maximum speed: 57 km/h Engine: 1200 hp/t Engine fire chance: 15 percent Power-to-weight: 34,8 hp/t Hull armor: 30/20/20 Turret armor: 30/20/20 DPM: 1700 Gun: 90mm AC DCA 45 ROF: 8,22 RPM Penetration: 212/259/45 Damage: 240/240/320 Accuracy: 0,34 Aimtime: 2,2s Elevation: -10/+20 Turret traverse: 38 deg/s Viewrange: 390 meters Radio range: 750 meters Armor: Crew: 4 (commander, gunner, driver, loader) Recommended skills by WG: Commander – sixth sense, repair, recon Gunner – repair, deadeye, snapshot Driver – repair, clutch braking, smooth ride Loader – repair, safe storage, intuition Recommended equipment by WG: stabilizer, coated optics, rammer Vehicle characteristics per Wargaming - extremy high mobility (high speed and horsepower, mobility of a light tank) (SS: do NOT be fooled, this vehicle turns much slower than you’d expect and DEFINITELY not like a LT, definitely try to test it somewhere before you buy it) - effective gun (90mm, accurate and rapid fire) (SS: note that this vehicle has full MM, the gun is thus much less effective than it is on FCM 50t, which has limited MM) - high gun penetration (212mm) (SS: again, unlimited MM) - low armor (or rather none, you have to be careful in battle) - a lot of ammo carried (90 rounds suffice for 13 minutes of continued fire) - comfortable depression (-10 degrees) Tactical Role per Wargaming - sniper (using the good depression and positioning yourself properly, WG notes however that this tank will attract attention of large caliber guns and HE shells due to its low armor) - support on the battlefield (supporting your allies as they advance, taking cover behind tanks with more armor, but avoid fighting head to head, you won’t survive a direct fight due to your low armor) - scouting (according to Wargaming, this vehicle has a decent camo factor and in worst case – if your scouts are dead – it can be used to scout as well) Please be aware: the part about the camouflage factor is most likely wrong, as Storm wrote this vehicle has one of the worst camo factors amongst its peers (save for one tank). I can confirm that from the test, this tank is as big as a barn and will NOT hide easily. Support is your best option.
