France-Bat Chatillon25t.png

The Bat.-Châtillon 25 t is a French tier 10 medium tank.

This experimental tank was a further development of the AMX 13. The tank underwent trials, but never entered mass production nor saw service. Two vehicles were manufactured.

Built by Société Batignolles-Châtillon à Nantes, the Batignolles-Châtillon 25t, often known in-game as the "Batmobile" or "Batchat", lives up to its reputation as one of the game's best assassin tanks, fit for many roles which include but are not limited to Scout, Sniper (when using the 100 mm SA 47 gun), Flanker, Brawler and Artillery hunter, with a high mobility and powerful gun its capable of devastating any tank that it encounters.

Keep in mind that once your shell drum is depleted, the gruesome reloading time will make you a very easy prey, and the very thin armor will not save you from any kind of shell as it relies on its mobility as a sort of protection. It also has rather poor aim time so you need to get close while moving or stay hidden to fully utilize its awesome cannon. While it can hold ground on its own, it is best used on high-risk high-gain encounters in the mid-late part of the round, preferably with another medium tank as support.

The Bat.-Châtillon 25 t marks the end of the French medium tank line.

Historical Info

Batignolles-Chatillon 25t a prototype that almost revived the concept of modern medium tank

In the beginning of the fifties, development of the very effective HEAT ammunition which basically negated the (homogeneous steel) armor of existing heavy tanks, for the moment revived the idea of medium tanks. Batignolles-Châtillon, renowned manufacturer of railway cars and locomotives, started the development of a new medium tank that eventually evolved into an “as light as possible” main battle tank concept. Batignolles-Châtillon's Char 25t had a very flat hull, with 80 mm of highly sloped front armor, hydraulic suspension with six wheels and a oscillating tower.

Oscillating Turret

The oscillating turret design, lacking a conventional gun-mantlet, is in two separate parts, with an upper and lower part connected by two hinge bolts or pivots, the gun being fixed within the upper section. The horizontal movement of the gun (traversing) is conventional, but the vertical movement (elevation) is achieved through the pivoting of the entire upper section with respect to the lower section. This method of elevation has two main advantages. Firstly, it allows for a smaller turret volume, as no internal space is needed for the vertical movement of the gun breech. Secondly, it allows the use of a relatively simple auto-loader fed by multi-round magazines,

achieving a very high rate of fire as the gun's position was fixed with respect to the auto-loader located in the back of the upper turret in a protruding bustle. The oscillating turret was a very fashionable concept in the fifties, and also applied in some American projects, such as the T57 and T58. Only the French, however, produced operational systems.

Armament And Other Design Features

Main armament consisted of a powerful 90 mm gun, with initial muzzle velocity of 930 m/s. As a secondary armament, the Char 25t had a single 7,5 mm machine gun. With very compact dimensions of only 5.67m in length, 3.16m in width, and 2.37m in height, mass of the vehicle stayed below 25 tones. With such a low weight, the Char 25t could achieve a very high top speed of 65 km/h. The crew consisted of four; a commander and gunner placed in the turret, while the driver and radio operator were placed in the hull.

Fate

Batignolles-Châtillon Char 25t lost the competition for the next French main battle tank in favor of the AMX 30, mainly because of an unreliable and maintenance intensive hydraulic suspension, as well as fading interest in the oscillating turret concept. It was relatively tall (compared to its size) and it was very difficult to make gas tight. In the era of cold war with a high risk of nuclear and chemical warfare, this was considered a major flaw. However, some of the technology was used in later vehicles.

Two prototypes were built.
