We’ve had two new French super-heavy tanks, but there are even more super-heavy and huge tanks on the way
what are their names ?

The FCM F1

a monster weighing 139.5 tonnes!
1.5 tonne less than the German E-100

Only 1 prototype was produced and 12 others were to arrive in 1940 but production was interrupted by the seizure of the plans and the destruction of the factory by the Germans.

unfinished variant
Its front turret was a 47 mm high explosive rate-of-fire turret with a coaxial machine gun for neutralising infantry vehicles. A second version of the front turret was planned, again with an 8 mm coaxial machine gun - carrying a 75 mm barrel gun, with hollow-head and explosive ammunition, for an anti-tank and self-protection version.

Rear turret
The rear turret was a 90 mm anti-aircraft gun, with a high rate of fire of 12 rounds per minute, firing 10 kg shells at 845 m/s. This explosive armour-piercing ammunition was designed to explode 100 milliseconds after piercing, blowing up sections of reinforced concrete, neutralising personnel and detonating casemate and armour ammunition. The standard 90 mm calibre 50 AA (anti-aircraft) fragmentation ammunition, capable of reaching an altitude of 13,000 m, could also be carried on board. A second version was envisaged, of 105 mm, this time as fragmentation ammunition.
Sans titre
why add it?
there’s a saying in france “never two without three”.
this tank is here to compensate for the arrival of the tog and to challenge the maus and the E-100 and to add to the fun of the french.
and the French are champions for this type of vehicle because we could add the
FCM F4
AMX TRACTOR C 1939
AMX TRACTOR C 1940
ARL TRACTEUR C
ARL FORTRESS TANK

and again, these are playable versions that can be implemented in the game.

I 100% want the FCM F1 in the game, I’ve been wanting gaijin to add it for awhile, yes the armor and turret armor is great on all sides, Same speed as the Maus, Requires a small village of 9-12 to operate it. We have the 2 armaments in game, the 47mm is on Lorraine 37L French army, And the 90mm is on Emile bertin in the French navy tech-tree. The 47mm can pen the front of a tiger that’s not angled at 100mm. The 90 mm on the other hand from my own research only had HE and HE-TF to use, but i could be wrong, that’s why I don’t mind the possibility of aphe or sapbc for the gun like the post said, but considering the time the gun was made it would have a pen around 110mm sloped at 90 degrees at 100 meters, but I’m just guessing don’t take my word on it. A couple of issues I see is how to balance it, I would consider putting the br around the 4.0 to 6.0 area. The front sloped armor is the same as the arl-44. A lot of tanks from other nations tank will have problems and some can still easily easy pen it a ranges and up close, And it can do it back to them. Its also going to have the same problems as the char 2c and Maus, Being massive and slow, But those can workout sometimes while being a super heavy tank, It can take a hit that would usually destroy other tanks and survive a few bombs. With the power to weight ratio of 7.9hp on the tank means its going to reach its top speed pretty easily, reverse fast and barely lose any speed going up hill, making it more maneuverable the the Char 2c and the Maus in some way’s. Some info given on websites are inconsonant that is why i put 9-12 crew cause it seems right. But other then that, It would make a fine addition to my collection and the tech-tree, and be a fun tank to play. But some people are going to say “WhErE’s ThE tWiN 20Mm Aa?”. My brothers and sisters in Christ, It was never designed to have AA. Just look at the only picture we have of it and see why. you probably play to much R.u.s.e.

Landships are going to be some of the most fun vehicles in this game. +2, one for each turret.
