Does this tank actually play better than the 50 120, or does it stay the same (except for added HP)? It features the same gun, just with a few improvements, so is it worth getting?

Much better, the elevation/depression not an issue for a start. It's a real pouncer/sniper.

Comparing it to the 50 120 isn't fair considering that it's supposed to be an upgrade.


It's faster than a T57 and Kranvagn, at the cost of having next to no armour.

Seriously, mine got penned by a T32's 105mm with HE in the turret this evening.


Gun depression is pretty good, but the camo makes it a little unreliable at mid range support.


So far I'm averaging around 3.5k dpg in mine, so I guess it's alright. Not as easy to pull wins in it though.

The gun elevation. Oh, sweet sweet gun elevation. Back when we grinded it the French autoloaders always had gun depression problems, but the 50 120 had an extra-jarring one with gun elevation.


Now they're buffed to historical standard, but the gun elevation on 50 120 is still so bad that once you get to the 50B with so-so gun elevation, it would feel like you suddenly evolved a neck again.


Definitely worth getting if you like autoloaders, speed, gun handling, and a larger clip than Skoda without the casemate problems of a Foch.

I agree with Napalmer, ez to get high dmg in hard to win because it can't really push due to no armour. It is quite nice to play and a definate upgrade over the 120 imo.
