History

  • Batignolles-Châtillon Char 25T ( usually abbreviated Bat.-Chat. 25T ) was a French tank developed by Batignolles-Châtillon around the mid-1950s. It was designed for a 25-ton weight class, which is twice the weight of the AMX-13. Its primary armament was a 90mm cannon, and was operated by 4 crew members. It could reach up to 65 km/h. Two prototypes were made before it was set aside. However, some principles of creation of the tank and some of its technology was used in other French AFVs. Some variants have been developed, but none of these were ever used in active service with the French Army.
  • Today, only one prototype survives and was put back on display at Saumur Tank Museum in 2014 after an absence of 10 years. Later, it was revealed that, during these 10 years, the tank was placed in the backyard and left to rust. However, thanks to protests from the public, the tank underwent a restoration progress and is now on display along with a rare ELC AMX prototype and an AMX 13 90.

  • I decided to switch to a different control scheme which should now make shooting more accurate in general.

    @PhantomBladeCorp Don't forget platoons of Tryhard-140s with 9 barrel rings between the three of them, HEAT-57s that will push out 4800 damage in 6 seconds (Batchat's 5850 takes about 10 seconds), hull-down BIAS-7s, Maus drivers that can side scrape, snapshotting Fattons with action hero-level accuracy and damage avoidance, Riot Shield Super Conquerors, and the 3-marked M53/M55 that can loop a shell through pixel gaps straight into your engine deck.

    But the Imperial Japanese Navy's land warship contingent is also quite a potent force too.

    @Pilotmario You get:
    - a toon full of Bat Chats, that's 1950 dmg clip potential × 3 = 5850 dmg/raid (theoretical)
    - blazing quick bats, 65 kph and awesome p/w ratio means you're gonna wreck ass like a bawss
    - did I forget other gun statistics and $K1LL? Yeah, gun handling may be worse than that of an iguana on tranquilizers but it's workable with.

    So you get a toon full of daredevils in shwanky dabby tanks. Until you meet a 3-man Anime heavy toon...

    This thing is a beast in WoT.

    Until you turn the corner and find out that the Sheridan/T49 platoon is there, and they all have the 152mm.
