World of Tanks Supertest: Somua SM – French Premium Heavy Tank

The French Premium heavy tank Somua SM reenters Supertest. The tank has been re-balanced and has a new role. It’s armour has been increased, gun lost one shell, gun stats changed for close range combat and it’s mobility was reduced. These changes will hopefully make this vehicle different from the AMX 50-100.

The following information is from Supertest and it’s subject to change before the final version is released to the live server.

  1. I agree with Havoc199 very similar tanks, Which one will play better i dont know but could be a good tank for certain situations for something like clan wars. Regardless do we really need another prem tank? seems like we get more prem tanks than actual tanks. The sad part about strongholds and clan wars right now is its owned by tier 8 premium tanks. I dont think this should be the case, they shouldnt be better than the grindable tanks in the game 😦

    1. WG currently is trying to release Tier 8 tanks that will “fit” in the current branches. This while it might look similar to AMX 50 100, it will play differently. It’s a more closed range combat tank, with the soft stats I don’t expect players to be playing “sniper” with this.

      1. Agreed, not a sniper but I don’t expect this to be a great brawler either, the hull is pretty good, it can get over 240mm with good angling but the turret is one huge weak point. I expect it will be played like a less mobile Lorraine 40t with more clip potential. Its armor will protect it from long range and auto-aiming lights but not in a close range brawl.
