[Client Values; Actual values in
Specifically, the mismatch in crew values caused by commander's 10% crew skill bonus. Outside of a crew of 1 commander only, 100% crew is a fiction. The client values, given for 100% crew, will normally be taken into battle with 110% crew skill members aside from specific functions, causing their actual performance to deviate from the expected client value. These differences are taken into account in tooltip boxes.

AnnoF87_Batignolles-Chatillon_12t.png

2370000

The Bat.-Châtillon 12 t is a French tier 8 light tank.

A light tank developed by Batignolles-Châtillon in the late 1940s. The vehicle featured an oscillating turret and 75-mm gun. Never saw mass production.

The only tank in French LT line that's not AMX series, this tank doesn't share its equipment with other French tanks so you have to research everything from scratch. However, its play style is the same as most of the AMX LT series. Abbreviated in-game as "B-C 12 t".

The Bat.-Châtillon 12 t leads to the Bat.-Châtillon 25 t AP, the AMX 30 1er prototype, and the AMX 13 90.

Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:

- Unlocks 3 vehicles: AMX 13 105, AMX 30 1er and the Bat.-Châtillon 25 t AP.

- Excellent mobility

- Decent accuracy, gun handling and aiming time

- Reasonable ammo capacity compared to others autoloading French LT (44 rounds)

- Exceptional camouflage, best in class


Cons:


  • Bad pen on stock gun, but barely worse than all tier 8 scouts with top gun.
  • Doesn't share modules with other French tanks, typical bad gun elevation and depression.
  • Commonly gets engine set on fire/engine damaged and tracks destroyed/tracks and engine destroyed.
  • Typical French armor.


Performance

The BatChat 12t features a fast-firing, low burst autoloader on a highly mobile chassis with effective camouflage and workable gun handling. This creates a platform which is good for passive scouting, flanking and firing from ambush. Engagements should not occur from long range, as the gun is unreliable enough that you can miss entire clips due to poor aim, and the damage output is too mediocre to punish exposed enemies. Instead, the player should keep at a distance where they can spot the enemy without being spotted in return (~300-400m) and fire from cover. When distracted or low health targets present themselves, the BatChat 12t makes for an effective flanker and assassin. However, it should not be used in a brawl. The tank is arguably one of the worst tier 8 light tanks, being inferior in almost every aspect (firepower, armour, mobility) in exchange for an autoloader, smaller profile and better camo.

Thanks to the incredible camouflage values of this tank, it saw extensive use as the tier 8 of choice in the 7/68 format battles of the WGL Grand Finals.


Suggested Equipment


Vertical Stabilizer Coated Optics Camouflage Net Binocular Telescope Improved Ventilation


Documented Tank and Crew Builds

The two defining aspects of the BC12t are its autoloader and its exceptional camouflage and builds should focus on optimizing these two aspects. All crew should be trained with camouflage and the commander should have 6th sense in order to optimize for the passive scouting role. Further improvements for the scouting role would include recon on the commander. For the gunner, either snapshot or dead-eye are good choices. The driver should learn smooth ride to give the BSC12t at least a chance to hit targets while moving.

The BatChat can mount common equipment pieces such as vertical stabilizers, optics and vents. However, a camo net should be considered as it boosts the camo when stationary to up to 50%.

Historical Info

The Bat.-Châtillon 12t, or the Char 12 Tonnes Batignolles-Châtillon, was a prototype French light tank.


Post-War Light Tank Requirements

After World War 2, the French military was in dire need of new tanks. As such, on September 1946 a draft was issued by the Direction des études et fabrications d'armement (DEFA) for a new light tank to fulfill anti-tank and reconnaissance roles. This draft dictated that the tank must have:

  • strong firepower
  • a weight of less than or equal to 12 tons in order to be transported by air
  • good mobility
  • a long operational range

Further requirements came in later. In January 1947, it was decided that the new tank must be able to accommodate many different types of weapons, and soon after the decision to use an oscillating turret was made - specifically, the FL-4 turret made by the Fives-Lille company with a high-velocity 75mm gun. By the end of 1945, the requirement that the tank must be air transportable was dropped.

The Char 12 Tonnes Batignolles-Châtillon

By April 1947, four companies entered the competition to design France's future light tank: AMX, Renault, FCM, and Batignolles-Châtillon. The latter's prototype became known as the Char 12 Tonnes Batignolles-Châtillon, or Bat-Chat 12t. This tank had the following characteristics:

  • Length: 4.31 meters
  • Width: 2.4 meters
  • Height: 2.17 meters
  • Ground clearance: 0.315 meters
  • Track Width: 0.37 meters
  • Crew: 3 members
  • Armament: 75mm cannon with 1000 meters/second muzzle velocity and 40 shells
  • Motor: Mathis 7-Cylinder 8 GZ 00 with 210 horsepower
  • Maximum speed: 73 kilometers/hour
  • Operational Range: 240 kilometers
  • Slope-climbing ability: 70 degrees

One should note that these statistics are either planned or tested a dummy turret. There are no known images of the Bat-Chat 12t with a proper turret, and it is unknown if the prototype was ever fitted with one.

Cancellation

The AMX prototypes won the competition with 5 prototypes built by December 1949, and entered service in 1952 as the AMX-13. In contrast, Batignolles-Châtillon's tank was not ready to be shown until June 1950. With the AMX prototype having been declared the winner, all development on and experiments with the Bat-Chat 12t ceased by September 1951.

Historical Accuracy Errata

The following are consensus errors or inconsistencies which have been identified with the configuration of the vehicle in question and conflict with information available on the public record. The causes for these divergences in the game are normally not disclosed and may be rooted in game balance.

* The in-game Bat-Chat 12t looks very different from the single prototype:
    • The hull is a different size and shape
    • The tank has a completely different suspension.
  • The Bat-Chat's gun, the Canon de 75 mm Vo 1000 m/s, was an earlier version of the 75 mm SA50 used by the AMX 13. Despite that, the SA50 vastly underperforms compared to its prototype version.
