AMX 50 Foch

Now that you've got used to the autoloader mechanism on the AMX AC mle. 48, it's time to move forward to the Tier IX vehicle, the AMX 50 Foch. From a design standpoint, it's very similar to its predecessor – see it as its Tier IX version.

Keep in mind that while the AMX AC mle. 48 has two gunners, this one and the next vehicle do not.

Gameplay

In terms of armour layout, it's fairly simply built – strong, sloped frontal armour and weak sides. Its main weak spots are its range finder and cupola on top of the vehicle. Sadly, those are fairly easy to hit, you can only reduce the chance of that happening by staying further away. However, the Foch saw a significant improvement of its HP pool, making it a tad bit more forgiving.

Its mobility got improved slightly but it's not a big difference. As before, going where you need to be is an easy task with the high-tier French tank destroyers. Once in position, use your camouflage value, paired with the decent view range, to wait for a good moment to strike. Both should be improved with the equipment and crew skills below.

The 120 mm AC SA46 gun was taken from the previous vehicle, with improvements to the accuracy, aiming time, and reload speed. Also, it has four rounds in the clip now. Still, the fastest way to unload all your shots is by being closer to your opponent. When sniping, you should aim as much as you can. While reloading, consider relocating to where the enemy won't expect you – chances they will charge directly towards where they think an autoloader aims are low.

Equipment

Recommended Setup

Hover your cursor over the images for more information on each piece of equipment.

To be able to unload your magazine in the shortest aiming time possible, we're taking the Improved Ventilation and the Enhanced Gun Laying Drive. With the Binocular Telescope, you can spot enemy vehicles by yourself more easily, increasing your chances of catching them off-guard.

Keep in mind that tanks with a conventional autoloader cannot mount a Tank Gun Rammer.

Crew Skills

Commander
Gunner
Driver
Loader

Hover your cursor over the images for more information on each crew skill or perk.

With this set of skills, we're focusing mainly on the sniping role. As you can see, the Concealment skill will make it more difficult for the enemy to find you – if you're not shooting. If you do, make sure to do so when the enemies are overexposing themselves. This will give you a better chance of making all shots count. The next skills improve different aspects of the vehicle, while Brothers in Arms gives a useful bonus to many characteristics.
