The AMX 50 Foch (155) is a French tier 10 premium tank destroyer
In 1952, with the launch of the AMX 50 120 tank project, the French discontinued development of the AMX 50 Foch tank destroyer. A tank destroyer having the same 120-mm gun armament as the tank was thought to be unnecessary. There were attempts to upgrade the main gun to 155 mm, but these efforts were abandoned as France made moves to adopt standardized NATO equipment.
It is now the “Derpy” counterpart of the Foch B, with a 155mm gun that offers high alpha damage and penetration, and very powerful HE shells that made this gun comparable with the pre-nerf Type 5 Heavy’s infamous derp gun, but with 3-shot autoloader making the Foch 155 capable of mowing down precisely the enemies most needing destruction in order to transform the course of a match.
Saddled with the height, handicapped gun handling, and no protection outside of the frontal arc, the Foch has many weaknesses which can make it incredibly frustrating to play. While difficult to exploit and temperamental in the extreme, the Foch (155) is an absolute game-changer when used with perfect timing.
