Description

GarageImage AMX-30 Super.jpg


The AMX-30 Super is a premium rank VI French medium tank with a battle rating of 8.7 (AB/RB/SB). It was introduced in Update 1.89 "Imperial Navy".

General info

Survivability and armour

Describe armour protection. Note the most well protected and key weak areas. Appreciate the layout of modules as well as the number and location of crew members. Is the level of armour protection sufficient, is the placement of modules helpful for survival in combat?

If necessary use a visual template to indicate the most secure and weak zones of the armour.

Mobility

The AMX 30 SUPER is fast and nimble. It engine gives a specific power of 1622HP in AB and 850HP in RB/SB. with a power to ton of 23.2 HP/Ton in RB/SB and 44.4 HP/Ton in AB, this tank can certainly traverse the terrains smoothly. being about 36.5 tons this tank is relatively lighter than its competitors of similar BR. This tank can go up to 72km/h in AB and 65km/h in RB/SB forwards and it goes up to 30km/h in AB and 27km/h in RB/SB Reverse.

Armaments

Main armament

The main armament to the AMX 30 SUPER is the 105mm CN-105-F1 cannon which is very similar to the likes of the 105mm L7A3. This cannon fires APFSDS, HEAT, smoke and HE. it is recommended to at most keep 22 shells in the tank when playing Realistic Battles as its ready rack can carry 22 shells and this effectively removes most of the ammunition rack on the hull behind the fuel tanks (except 4 shells around the turret ring). it is recommended to take a loadout of mostly APFSDS with a few HEAT and Smoke shells just in case. The gun takes about 6.7 seconds to reload with an aced crew with max leadership and weapon reloading skill which is fairly standard among its competitors. The main shell, the OFL 105 F1 APFSDS is very capable of penetrating most of what it sees with a frontal shot as it has 350mm of penetration on 0 degrees 500 meters away. The OCC 105 F1 HEATFS may be very useful against light targets such as SPAAG or Light tanks. The OFPH 105 F1 smoke shell provides extra ranged covering smoke in order to mask you or your team (possibly even blinding the enemy) in combat.

Additional armament

No Additional Armaments.

Machine guns

The AMX-30 SUPER is armed with a Coaxial 12.7mm (50cal) inside its turret right beside the cannon and a lighter 7.62mm (30cal) mounted on the roof near the commander's hatch. Although ditching the 20mm which is typically armed in other AMX-30s, the machineguns equipped can still deal fair damage to very lightly armoured vehicles.

Usage in battles

Describe the tactics of playing in the vehicle, the features of using vehicles in the team and advice on tactics. Refrain from creating a "guide" - do not impose a single point of view but instead give the reader food for thought. Describe the most dangerous enemies and give recommendations on fighting them. If necessary, note the specifics of the game in different modes (AB, RB, SB).

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Great mobility
  • Has stabilizer so it can shoot on the move unlike other AMX-30s
  • Good armour
  • Armour can sometimes bounce shots
  • Good survivability due to crews placement, as such is difficult to one-shot
  • Fuel tanks may absorb the HEAT-FS shells and sometimes the APFSDS shells too
  • Has access to a variety of ammunition rounds
  • Premium bonus

Cons:

  • Commander's turret machine gun found on the French AMX-30s is replaced with MG3A1 which cannot deal very well with air targets
  • The armour is still easily penetrated by other nations tank at the rank
  • Most of the times, the shots that penetrate the tank will take out the engine

History

During the second half of the 80s, a group of companies in West Germany developed an extensive program to modernize certain outdated tanks, including the French AMX-30B. A number of improvements were made to the French tank in order to enhance its firepower, increase its dynamic characteristics, and (optionally) enhance its armour to a certain extent.

The tank’s firing potential was improved thanks to the installation of a MOLF fire control system with a stabilized sight and a stabilizer for the main gun. The tank’s mobility was enhanced with a new 850-horsepower diesel engine, a German automatic transmission, and new torsion bars and hydraulic shock absorbers. The new tank was demonstrated to the public under the name “Super AMX-30” during testing in Saudi Arabia, but no buyers were found for the upgraded French tank, and only one Super AMX-30 was ever made.
