Appreciate your thoughts on a decent French rammer (for Coalition 5.2). 

 

AMX50B is good but also thinking about lower tiers (7+).

I have a Kamikaze in an ELC AMX.

 

Anything can ram if you fall off a cliff.

Ram kills or is it like 15.13 and just needs a tap?

You need to get a kill but do more damage to enemy than you take yourself. Rules out the low health love taps.

 

EZZ where are you???????

The more damage to them than you may switch things up I guess. I'd probably try with the amx30 vs some unsuspecting light but as fox mentions I gather the 50t is excellent at ramming if you have one.

Does it count if:
You have 1hp
You ram and kill something for 2hp and die in the process

I'm not good at this game, its just that the rest of the server sucks~

50 100 or 40t are great ram tanks. 50 100 is 50 tons and fast, 40t is 40 tons and faster. No armour? That's what controlled impact is for. :izmena:

I ram killed an SPG (I think was an M44) in my amx12t the other day...

He splashed me point blank, left me very low on HP and stunned.

He was also low on HP, I couldn't shoot cos all crews stunned but managed to slowly reverse into him and ram killed him with just a scrap on the bumper...lol.

Greatest kills in the game:

 

3rd place - Butt rams

2nd place - Drowning an enemy by shoving them underwater

1st place - Goomba stomps

 

All are rams, in their own way.

50t, 50 100, and maybe a lucky 50B or 50 120. Fochs can also do the job in a pinch; dump your clip and if the enemy is still alive then fix bayonets on the gunbarrel. The rest of the French tanks are either too slow (M4 51), too light (AMX 13, BatChats), or too lightly armored (Professor, BatSplats).

 

A pity really, the old BC 155 55 with the Patton hull is a surprisingly decent ramming-tank.

Got several rams in with the 50100, the doing more damage to them being the bit which is a bit tricky. Ideally need one on about 300 - 350hp.

 

Seriously thinking of starting a new driver with controlled impact on training.

One was very frustrating with an ally tank shooting him for 240 health just as i was about to hit him, and having him do 270 damage to me and I killed him for 130..... :sceptic:

I retrained for Controlled impact on my 40t/AMX 30 crew. Glorious memes.

 

The best is my Progetto crew though. Like my French MT crew, they're in the 90% range on Controlled Impact, but it's so much funnier when someone tries to ram my Spaghetto only for them to die and me to live (and it also makes rams with the Spaghetto more viable, obviously).

 

Once killed an E50M on low health like that. I expect he might've been a little angry at the surprise outcome. :trollface:

I've got a few crews with controlled impact, its a hoot. Crommie B at 100% CI vs Type 64 and Type 37 = boom

 

Bobject is similar, whack em for 650 on the way in, ram them for 800 then shoot them again. Next.

 

Was always entertaining driving the Bishop when enemy scouts come in for a ram kill.

Most lights have bugger all armor and don't weigh much so that's usually a losing proposition. AMx30 with controlled impact would be glorious tho.

You have to do more damage to them than you take in the ram.

 

Ramming a tank weighing 2 times what you weigh in a lightly armoured tank doesn't seem like a very good idea at all. And often the armour is much better than the scouts at the point of impact.

Doesn't mean you can't shoot the tank before you ram to reduce the impact damage, done it before and it does work.

That makes no sense in both real life and in game.
