Une quote de DOC sur le patch en relation avec le camp Français:
The French "got nothing" this patch, because the 2 things they were going to get, couldn't be done in time (DB-7 and H81-A) for reasons you probably don't want to accept anyway. They will be the very next ANYTHING we patch in as equipment.
We're still discussing what the next French tank will be. The H-39 always gets the most "front runner" status in these forum fests, but the fact is that it has the same gun as the Char and S35, is slower than an S-35 (by about 1 kmh) and has LESS armour.
None of that says to use 1 more object/texture memory on a weapon with no uniquly different capability, weapon, or survivability. It doesn't offer us anything but another French vehicle, and one that only works the same as what they have now or in some cases worse.
We would rather use this valuable equipment slot (we have a finite limit on how many pieces of equipment the code will handle that we haven't licked yet) to give the French something that broadens their equipment functionality rather than replicate existing ability while adding in worse performance at the same time. We think we can do better than that.
Of course, spawn numbers (lists) at release will be changed so that more TYPES of stuff does not equal more NUMBERS of stuff. We aren't stupid (last time I checked) and we'll tell you more on this later.
