World of Tanks EU: Somua SM Available & Tier VIII Premium Sale

2 min read

World of Tanks 1.0 is out and with it a new vehicle was released to the battlefield: Somua SM, French heavy tank. But fear not if you don’t like it, you can buy other Tier VIII Premium tanks currently on sale.


The Somua SM in short

This French vehicle is a powerful supporting vehicle with an opportunistic playstyle. Time your attack perfectly and you can make your entire clip count. Do you hear the credits rolling already?

  • Armour: While it still can’t compete with the most heavily armoured vehicles, it can deflect shots from same-tier vehicles. The turret armour is the strongest frontally. Combine this with very good gun depression and you can hide your most vulnerable spots easily.
  • Mobility: Because of the armour upgrade, the top speed suffered quite a bit. However, the acceleration is still decent, allowing you to easily keep up with most of the heavy tanks.
  • Firepower: As usual for French autoloaders, the main firepower depends on the burst damage, and the Somua SM has plenty of that. The five-round clip is able to cripple or completely obliterate any enemy you face, and all in the time span of nine seconds. Make sure you’re safe to reload afterwards.

  1. Good looking tank. Pity about the .4 dispersion though.

    Might trade in my Liberte that i got in a christmas box for it.

  2. Pity about the tier 10 match making for tier 8. The low top speed. Paper armor. Low hp/t. If you are bottom tier and have not much armour you want to be fast. This tank isn’t

  3. Well, it’s not totally over-powered, and it’s not yet another Soviet medium/heavy tank, so we’re on the right track at any rate…
