AMX 301er Appreciation thread

Recommended Posts

I skimmed the first three pages of the French forum on WoTlabs and was surprised to not find a dedicated appreciation thread singing the praises of the AMX 301er. I probably missed it, but in the event that one has not been created, here you go.

This tank is fantastic. It is a tank that makes me feel like a unicum. It's fast, it begs you to flex and find new ways to use the gun depression, it hits hard (especially for a French tank), and it looks good doing it. It also has higher pen than the French tier 9 TD (because WG balance). I only have 100 games in the AMX 301er but it's a keeper tank for me. Once I get more girls in it (yes, that's my ghetto crew on the left) it will be even better.

Share your thoughts on this masterpiece of French engineering, bathed in sexy French blue. Or yell at me for missing the actual appreciation thread.

I think the topic Garbad_the_Weak made was the appreciation thread for the 30p?

For me the AMX30p is and was the favourite tier 9. Gun is derpy as hell, but Vents and Food help with that somewhat. Very good mobility and reliable ammorack (PTA, looking at you). Only actually bad thing about these soft mediums are their inability to carry teams on most situations and maps. I've only managed to hard carry few games with shear volume of shots and spots, contrary what's much more frequent with for example -54 -62A -140 and so on. 260 APCR pen is very good for a tier9 tank, especially if you're top tier, but the derpiness of the gun makes you bounce shots which you shouldn't so I wouldnt worry too much about shooting few HEAT shells once in a while. Anyways, having such a high standard pen means that you actually make money playing the tank, with premium account :verysmug:

30p is better for its own tier than the 30B, but I still enjoy the tier10 very much. Actually it's my favourite tank by far atm.

i'm just currently at the AMX 13 90 and haven't yet decided yet on which line to go down first (i do plan to go down both lines eventually). on the one hand is the (so i've heard) painful Lor 40t before the legendary BC 25t, or to get the AMX 30 leading to the AMX 30B. 

i haven't seen that much AMX 30s in SEA though

Just to share my 2 cents.... grinding this one with stock gun was goddamn hard...... first 50 games were like 1300 DPG and now it's 2200 DPG and still growing... thinking of doing 3 MoE but I'm cheap sonbitch and ain't paying them food :D

It's a great tank to fart around in. For some reason it strikes the perfect balance between mobility and mass for the new physics, so it just feels really 'tanky' to drive. It may be unsuited to the current meta but I really appreciate the solid alpha, and the RoF isn't too bad. 

So far I expect to like this tank at least as much as the (pre-buff) PTA, which I loved.

I love this tank. Got my only Poole's medal in it and somehow I've managed to keep 3k+ WN8 in it while I can't do a god damn thing in the 140 or 62a. Mind blowing.

I prefer my PTA, the accuracy isn't the best. I keep finding myself closer to the enemy than I really want to be... if (30 1'er) played like PTA, you can actually feel the dpm difference. If they gave the PTA this turret, it would be so nice.

I just bought this tank back (yay for exceptions) as I decided to grind to the 30B instead of the Leo, but..is the top engine worth researching on this?

Less fire chance doesn't really make a difference to me (now that I've said that I'll get set on fire every game) but does the lighter engine make a noticeable difference?

Id definitely go for a full research always..... The tank, considering tier for tier, is way better than 30B.... :D

Eh so I keep reading, but I spend so much time in T10 games that I may as well grab the T10 for the extra DPM and soft stats.

Not to mention traverse, I do like this tank, but that traverse speed keeps killing me. (Well technically my play style keeps killing me, but..)

Gun handling is generally better and a small DPM boost is there for sure, but imho, all comparable tanks like STB, cent AX, patton of course are way better... not sure bout leo1 :)

traverse speed is annoying... reminds me of lorraine/batchat but I try to get the best for the acceleration and top speed (way better than other meds)

sold it for 30B.... never have I regretted my decision anymore.... see my sad post in 30b thread

I intend to keep both. Mainly because of sexy looks. So I'm loosely training an amx 30B crew on the CDC… and the SARL 42, which is the highest regular med that has the corrrect crew configuration (fuck you, G1R, fuck you)

I rly do love this tank, but I can't get wins in it. Although the new physics made it way smoother to drive around, the missed shots on capping bots made me rage more than once.

Go full tryhard mode and use only APCR. It becomes...bearable.

I'll probably cave and do something like this, but 400k exp of grind with constant credit loss is another way for the 13 90 to make its driver. 

I wish WG would have mercy and make it 300k like the Obj 416 grind.
