Description

GarageImage AMC.34 YR.jpg


The Automitrailleuse de Combat AMC.34 YR (Combat machinegun-car) is a reserve Rank I French light tank with a battle rating of 1.0 (AB/RB/SB). It was introduced in Update 1.75 "La Résistance". It features a well-armoured turret on a fragile chassis and a subpar SA34 L/30 cannon as main armament. This is as the best as French reserve tanks get...

Being not so fast, not so well-armoured and not so powerful, this tank is clearly not one to be bold with. Any other reserve tank you may encounter has a canon that penetrates about 150% more than yours and can fire twice as fast, so never engage an enemy head-on. Instead, as with most rank 1 French vehicles, stick with the team and follow flanking manoeuvres. Do not go out in an open field since your armour cannot protect you from incoming shots, your cannon cannot reliably engage an enemy, and your mobility does not allow for dodging. At best, this tank is a support brawler; at worse, it is a decoy for the enemy to shoot a round at.

This tank's turret is its best attire: thick, sloped, and small. It is nearly invincible in a hull-down position. Otherwise, any penetrating frontal shot has a good chance to one-shot you: on the left side, a big ammo-rack can be easily detonated while on the right side, your only 2 crew members are all lined-up. Its mobility is "Not the best but still good" in terms of characterization. With about 15 HP/ton, is can carry its user to a good position.

Firepower is the main worry of early French tanks: they are subpar. With at most 45 mm of penetration at point-blank ranges, poor ballistics and an awful reload time, this is one of the worst reserve main armament. This gun is best used in assisting allied flanking manoeuvres and close-quarter engagements.

Usage in battles

Hull-down!!!:

With its thick turret armour, this tank performs good in ambush positions near a choke-point: find yourself a rock, trench or hill and poke your turret out. You will have a good view on the battlefield while bouncing most incoming rounds. Even if you found a good spot, reposition every now and then since you will be spotted and dealt with in no time.

(Kind-of) Brawling:

Assisting your allies will be your best use of this tank. Don't bother stealing kills from your allies since its the best you can do. Remember: your penetration and reload time are awful, never engage anything alone, or worse, head-on.

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Has APHE shell (Mle1892G)
  • Turret is well armoured and angled
  • MAC 31 machine gun as coaxial MG is good
  • Tiny target
  • Best French reserve tank so far...

Cons:

  • Has bad penetration values
  • Reload time is twice as slow as any other reserve tanks
  • Bad speed
  • Hull armour is only 20 mm thick and flat
  • Turret ring is only 30 mm thick
  • Only 2 crew members are lined up and cramped: easy to one-shot
  • Huge ammo racks are easy to detonate

History

Describe the history of the creation and combat usage of the ground vehicle in more detail than in the introduction. If the historical reference turns out to be too big, 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>, as well as adding them at the end of the article. This section may also include the vehicle's dev blog entry (if applicable) and the in-game encyclopedia description (under === Encyclopedia Info ===, also if applicable).

Media

Excellent additions to the article would be video guides, screenshots from the game, and photos.
