World of Tanks Supertest - AM 39 Gendron-Somua

Recommended Posts


A tier 2 wheeled vehicle has appeared on the supertest -- the AM 39 Gendron-Somua. The vehicle follows a similar philosophy to the high-tier vehicles, with its' key features being very impressive speed & maneuverability. Although nothing has been made official as of yet, this is likely to be a gift/reward vehicle at some point next year, considering (among other things) both its' tier and premium status. Ultimately, however, only time will tell. In the meantime, read on for more details!
Greetings Tankers, 

We are starting the closed test for another light French wheeled vehicle, the Tier II Premium.

The Gendron-Somua has a crew of two: A Commander with extra skills and a Driver. Gameplay-wise, this vehicle will be typical of similar light tanks of the tier: rapid, fast-shooting but vulnerable. The differences lay in the handling and driving. It is hard to pin-down the Gendron-Somua, you need to damage more than half of its wheels to bring it to a stop. The vehicle is also armed with a 25-mm rapid firing autocannon. To sum it up, the Gendron-Somua is a fast vehicle able to quickly take key positions and use its rapid-firing gun.
