[Development] Lorraine 40t: Sports Heavy



The Lorraine 40t is a French, experimental tank with an auto-loading cannon and a classic French tank design feature: the oscillating turret. How will it fare against German Tigers and Soviet IS tanks? Let’s find out!

The Lorraine 40t is a very well-balanced, fast, and powerful vehicle sure to find fans among War Thunder’s tankers. It is equipped with a 100mm, autoloading, rifled SA 47—a powerful cannon that can pierce more than 220 mm thick armour at 500m distance with armour-piercing shells. In addition, the tank’s drum-style autoloader holds 7 shells in a clip, giving it a higher rate of fire than its contemporaries (and War Thunder players more opportunities for a successful hit). All of this heavy-hitting firepower is packed into an oscillating turret—a turret design in which the turret is made of two hinged parts and affords higher gun placement, quicker rotation, and other advantages over standard turret designs of the time.







Due to its lighter armor, the Lorraine 40t is also very quick. Its nimble gearbox allows speeds up 60 km/h on roads, and over 40 km/h off-road. And even with its lighter armor, the front section of the Lorraine 40t’s hull has a good chance of causing a ricochet when struck by enemy fire. In addition, its gun mantlet is also difficult to pierce. Although it is fast and packs a powerful punch, the Lorraine 40t still has some disadvantages. Its sides and rear are more lightly armored, and three of its four crew members were seated in the turret. These disadvantages can seriously reduce the tank’s survivability if played recklessly.
