Supertest: French Tank Destroyer Changes

High Tier French Tank Destroyers will also be rebalanced in Update 9.20. Currently on Supertest, they received a new 120mm auto loading gun. There will be several changes to firepower, mobility and armour, making this vehicles better suited for Random Battles. All three vehicles received a significant buff to their side armour, meaning they won’t be subjected to the three calibre rule anymore.

Please remember these are Supertest changes and might change before the final version is released.

    1. Except it has the worst pen of all T10 TDs, a terrible gun arc, a longer aim time than the clip reload and poor accuracy.
      The WT auf E100 had a crazy accurate gun, with a turret, with good pen and a ridiculous clip.
      The two vehicles are very different, the only similarity is high clip potential.

  1. 6 shots with 400dmg and only 2 secs between shots? Isn’t that a bit too much? That’s enough to easy clip out a IS-7 or T57 heavy

    1. With tiny gun traverse, 0 armour, huge weakspot, terrible manoeuvre, huge and long silhouette, useless gun handling…stop rating a tank solely on 1 parameter. Idiots who do that are the reason why most tanks in this game are unbalanced and yet all having similar playstyles. Anything different is classed as OP and that’s it.

    2. It’s a td it’s only purpose is to deal fear in heart of heavy tanks…but after nerfing arty and td’s heavies are dominating the field…

    3. if this is too much how about strv wich deliver 400 dmg at 6 seconds and has a lot better stats regarding camo factor, speed both forward and especial backward, and better tank travers speed?

    4. well the 6clips is advantages because 120mm suffers penetration compare to 155mm caliber, so its trade up for a bit better damage for full clip 120mm got 2400dmg and the 155 got 2250dmg, and remember 120mm suffers armor overmatch thing compare to 155mm, especially against the strv 103b

  2. Why there are so many people this those TDs overpowered now? I consider it is a nerf for tier10 foch. The gun handling on those 120 mm are terrible(compare to other 120mm and 105mm that have same alpha), it takes so much time to dump whole clip and the penetration is too low for tier 10 TD that does not have a turret.

    1. Its a auto loader to when compared to other 120mm auto loading guns its the same as a 50b but with 2 seconds between shots, the pen is a bit bad but everyone spams gold anyway. The main thing is the dpm at 3k its the 3rd highest for a tier 10 TD and its a auto loaded which makes the dpm better since you can hide during reload. But with those stats its close to being CW viable if it had turret/stealth/amour/mobility so strv 103b amd t57heavy are still better choices. i think the stats for the 120mm are just about balanced with the only flaw being pen, but the game does need a complete overhaul in penetration and amour

  3. This is a good change for the lone in he. I hope the tier 10 still has an option for the 150mm autoloader too.

    Good clip potential, high pen and high damage balanced by poor gun handling, weak armour and very very tiny gun traverse angles.

    1. I don’t think it will have the 155mm autoloader. WG doesn’t like them due to the issues with balancing them and I don’t blame them. It could be interesting to have an option single shot 155mm but that might be a bit generic with the E3
