Tank Comparison : T57 HT vs AMX 50B Showdown

Sat 23rd Jan 2016 - 7:00pm : Guides

T57 vs AMX50B

The penultimate Tier 10 Autoloader heavy tanks in the entire World of Tanks tech tree has only 2 contenders. The American T57 HT vs the French AMX 50B. Both have 4 shots autoloading guns, and yet couldn’t be any more different from each other. First a brief history.

 

T57 HT

A project of a heavy tank with an oscillating turret and automatic loading. Developed from 1951. Experimental turrets for 120 mm and 155 mm guns were manufactured by 1957. However, the project was deemed unsuccessful and development was discontinued.

 

AMX 50B

Developed starting in 1951 by DEFA, the state weapons design bureau. By 1958, the AMX 50 B received a number of improvements, including a low-profile cast hull and torsion-bar suspension. A new oscillating turret with a 120-mm gun was also mounted on the vehicle. Despite the fact that the Maybach engine power provided just 1,000 h.p., specialists from the German Gruppe M company were looking for a solution that would allow the vehicle to reach a speed of up to 65 km/h. Only one finished prototype of this variant was built.

 

THE COMPARISON

 

1. FIREPOWER AND WEAPON HANDLING

In terms of firepower, the T57 has the advantage over the AMX 50B with a damage per minute of 316 extra damage. This is due to the superior reload time of the T57 HT which is 4.8s faster than the AMX50B, at only 22.93s (with Brother-in-arms perk and Ventilation), where else the AMX 50B has a reload time of 27.52s (with Brother-in-arms perk and Ventilation). It is really outstanding for it’s amazing burst and damage per minute potential. To add insult to injury, the inter clip reload of the T57HT is only 2s, whilst the AMX 50B has a 0.5s longer reload at 2.5s. However, the AMX 50B has the longer effective in-game staying capability with 56 rounds of ammo (if you manage to stay alive till the end, of course). You will never or seldom encounter the problem of lack of ammo in the AMX 50B compared to only 36 rounds of ammo of the T57 HT. There were a few times that I have nearly run out of ammo in the T57 HT in random battles. With the short reload time of the T57 HT, you can even unload 1 or 2 shot and getting back into cover and start your reload to keep the enemy guessing on the number of shells you have left. Use the fast reload time to your advantage. With proper management and timing of your reload, you will be wrecking the enemy.

However, what the AMX 50B lacks in terms of firepower compared to the T57 HT, it makes up in spades in its superior weapon handling. With a better aim time of 2.5s, the AMX 50B will shoot and aim faster in every way. Even though the accuracy of both tanks are the same at 0.35, the AMX 50B excels as a 2nd line support tank/sniper role. This is also due to it's 2.5s inter-clip reload time. In contrast, The T57 HT is better at brawling because of its weaker weapon handling. Getting closer to the enemy will make sure that the longer aim time and dispersion is negated somewhat. This is where the 2s inter-clip reload comes in handy, allowing you to unload all 4 shells in 6s. In regards to gold ammo that both tanks carry, the T57 HT uses HEAT shells , compared to APCR in the AMX 50B. And this makes the AMX 50B more lethal when engaging tanks with spaced armor.

 

2. MOVEMENT

 

Once again, the AMX 50B excels in nearly every way compared to the T57 HT in movement. The AMX 50B is 30km/h faster than the T57 HT, at 65km/h, making it one of the most flexible heavy tank in game. It is even faster than some tier 10 mediums. Therefore, it Is the AMX 50B’s strongest strength. Being able to relocate is a very valuable asset, something the T57 HT lacks. The reverse speed of the AMX 50B is also much better than the T57 HT, coming in at 20km/h. This makes the AMX 50B better at taking a shot or two and quickly reversing out to avoid getting hit. This will help in perserving its health. For the T57 HT, its inferior in this aspect as it only has 12km/h reversing speed, and coupled with a longer aim time of it's gun, I normally try to unload all 4 shots before reversing out of the way. 

 

3. ARMOR

Getting back into the game, the T57 HT has more armor compared to the AMX 50B. Still, the T57 HT is not really bouncy when shot by other tier 10 tanks. You can get some bounces when angled, of course. However, the armor is unreliable at best. Obviously it’s strength is not it’s armor, however you still can pull off some miracle bounces. Its the more or less the same with the AMX 50B. Having less armor, it can still pull off bounces if angled right because of its sharp slope on the upper hull. For both tanks, the armor is not to be relied upon to save your skin. 

 

4. CONCLUSION

There you have it. Both tanks strength and weaknesses are laid out. Which one is more suitable for you? My advice would be to get both, as both are equally good after the balancing of both tanks. Both tanks have been balanced to excel to a certain way of playing. The T57 HT now excels are brawling and being right up there near the frontline of the battle, where else the AMX 50B excels at sniping and providing support from further away. Both tanks strength can be summed up as below :-

T57 HT

  • Better armor
  • Better damage per minute
  • Better inter-clip reload

AMX 50B

  • Better movement
  • Better weapon handling
  • More ammo
  • Gold ammo is APCR

 

Either way, you would not regret grinding to either one of these force of destruction.
