Supertest: Bat.-Châtillon 12t mle. 54 Tier VIII French Medium

Today, Supertest receives a new French Tier VIII medium, the Bat.-Châtillon 12t mle. 54.

The strongest aspect of this tank is its mobility. Going flat out, it can hit 62 km/h and its power-to-weight ratio is 25.8 hp/t. As for the armor, well, you shouldn’t rely on it; its most well-covered areas are only 40 mm thick. The HP of this medium is 1250 units and it has a view range of 390 m.

This Bat-Chât’s gun offers 6 degrees of gun depression and is equipped with a two-shell drum that deals 360 damage. Reloading will take 2 s for a single shell or 18 s for the entire drum. The penetration of a standard shell is 190 mm, and for an APCR round—240 mm. As for the aiming time and dispersion, it’s 3.5 s and 0.42 m/100 m respectively.

All in all, the Bat.-Châtillon 12t mle. 54 is perfect for fast-paced gameplay and aggressive attacks at close quarters. The quickly reloading drum allows you to do max damage in just a couple of seconds, and its high mobility will help you avoid return fire. The key to having a great fight in this tank: choose the right moment to attack!

  1. Looks cool and quite balanced, now we just have to wait for WG to nerf it into the ground because it’s not Russian…..

    1. really balanmced clip with 360 alfa on a t8 light …… bro can u give me ur dealer contact it has some good sh333t

      1. Yeah, but both tanks were in Supertes with just one set of modules, like all other Premium/Rewards. So, no, no new mini branch, at least for now and not with these vehicles.

  2. Not gonna lie, stats look terrible …so this is probably going in the tech tree! Maybe before that Projet that we saw the other week …even if they are worlds apart.

    Terrible aimtime, penetration and depression mixed with terrible armor and it’s a medium so no movement camo. What a nugget. If it has the soft stats of a wheeled vehicle then that 3.5s aimtime won’t matter to much, otherwise 3.5s kills it.

    The standard 12T is not much better but it has light tank camo and 4 shots in the drum so you can miss a few.

    1. Interesting tank. It is great for doing 720 dmg in just 2 seconds and then ducking into cover. Basically a medium version of the prem ebr. Imagine a platoon of these doing 2k in 2 seconds and running away.

  3. Hmmmm maybe they’ll finally add a French medium line? Although I doubt it seeing as the Tier 6 and 7 will have to be something we’ve never heard of just like these. The Lorraine G1L was once supertested as a tier 6. The tier 7 could be the AMX-45 but both have nothing compared to this one and the Tier 9
