Though not thick, the armour is highly angled and can bounce some hastily made shots. It will not bounce APDS or HEAT rounds, so be wary of tanks bearing guns like those. Overall, it can sporadically bounce shots and can save you from machine guns at the very least. Do not use it to brawl, use it more like a Hellcat with better armour to flank.

Usage in battles

Use this tank as a flanker and not a medium tank. Unlike most vehicles suited for flanking, players will be able to trust the armour of the AMX-50 (TO90/930) more, so it is useful against smaller, autocannon-armed vehicles like the Wiesel 1A4 and BTR-80A.

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Great mobility
  • M82 Shot has plenty of TNT for devastating post-pen damage
  • Armour can help bounce some shots
  • Turret rotation speed is good

Cons:

  • Useless against tanks like Maus or IS-4M most of the time due to weak penetration power
  • The Oscillating turret has weak armour and weak gun handling due to a lack of stabilizer
  • Pintle mounted machine gun is rifle caliber, and can only raise 20°, leaving you defenseless against aircraft

History

Describe the history of the creation and combat usage of the vehicle in more detail than in the introduction. If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/History" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/(Vehicle-name)/History) and add a link to it here using the main template. Be sure to reference text and sources by using <ref></ref>, as well as adding them at the end of the article with <references />. This section may also include the vehicle's dev blog entry (if applicable) and the in-game encyclopedia description (under === In-game description ===, also if applicable).
