Is the S35 one of history's best tanks? Find out for yourself.

If it was still used normally as a tank after the Germans captured it, and not turned into an artillery tractor or self-propelled gun straightaway, then it must be good.

"One man who knows that a flank must be held is more valuable than an entire army who throws themselves across a field uselessly."

Favorite tanks of each nation: M5 Stuart | VK 30.01(P) | Type 97 Chi-Ha | Cromwell | Type 64 | SU-85I

Main tanks of each class: Type 64 | Comet | Tiger (P) | Jagdpanther | Hummel

Only really in second line duties and it was a diffidult tank to adapt due to its large scale castings.

The Pz S35 is such a seal clubber.

QFT. 

Still, it was one of the best early war designs... Would've been interesting to see how effective these tanks were if they weren't hampered by the tactics employed by France at that time.

Vive La Francais mon ami! :B

Pz. S-35 it's only the way to claiming a good & old Tank made in 10-15 yrs on WWII. :))

WG please don't be racist on the original Somua S-35, make the fair performance or even better (unlike the Pz. Deutsch-Somua-wagen S-35) when the upgraded original version on this update 9.7

seeing the D1 to B1 has poor DPM & BDR G1B to AMX M4 45 has poor aiming time & some DPM (at BDR G1B's 90mm DPM, ARL 44's 105mm, 90mm DCA 45's DPM & aiming time).

please mon ami~~ D:

don't nerf my beloved France Tank (as Leclerc candidate ofc) don't harm the elder of Leclerc mon ami~
