The main purpose, usage and tactics recommendations

General play style

Vehicle characteristics

The AMX 40 represents a massive shift in the French tank tree, with the addition of a stabilizer, whereas all other vehicles, with the exception of the American vehicles (Sherman M4A1, Jumbo.) have no actual stabilizer. Many players might find themselves hesitating to fire a shot as soon as a target is seen because there is usually time to think before the gun is stabilized, but at this rank, French players might find themselves having a hard time shooting before their enemy.

Tactics

Specific enemies worth noting

Counter-tactics

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Composite armor, balanced survivability
  • Good mobility
  • Second best APFSDS shell behind Type 90 tank APFSDS shell
  • Good forward and reverse acceleration and speed
  • Medium size
  • Good rate of fire with great stabilizers with co-axial 20mm autocannon

Cons:

  • Easely outflanked by almost every others top rank VI tanks
  • Outclassed in mobility and protection by Leopard 2A4, Type 90 and M1 Abrams
  • A real sniper tank, avoid if possible close combat
  • Turret turn speed is slower than most of the top rank VI tank, close combat can turn deadly quickly for the AMX-40
