M10 RBFM ‘Les Snickers’

POSTED BY Nikita May 25, 2019

The French tier 5 ‘D-Day’ marathon reward tank – the M10 RBFM or ‘Le Snickers’ as l like to call it!!

First impressions – played well, it’s pretty damn good – seems to penetrate most opposition (in its own tier) and is good for racking up kills etc – just don’t get hit!  First battle I played – 4 kills, no incoming damage – second game, one-shotted by a Sherman M4 (with the derp) one minute in without even firing a shot!

This TD outperforms all except one of the other T5 TD’s (the 60G FT) in terms of DPM – while the 76mm gun only does 115 average damage with its 130 penetration, its 20 rounds per minute add up to an impressive 2321dpm.  With a gun rammer and Brothers in Arms, you can get that up to 2637 and almost 23RPM!

Mobility is pretty average with a top speed of 48, but once you find cover and a good place to fire from, you’re not going to want to move.  This vehicle needs to be played purely in a support role.  It’s not like the T67 where you can shoot and scoot but played well, it can be just as devastating. 

Its armour isn’t great – 38.1/0/19.1 on the hull and 57.2/25.4/25.4 on the turret – not the best or worst, but coming up against those derp guns, especially above T5 will certainly see you playing short games if you’re spotted!

For a reward tank, I would say this is one you want to try and get, it’s great fun and not expensive to play but hugely rewarding when you have a good game. I’ve heard that someone has 3 MOE’s on it already – which isn’t surprising.  This thing throws rounds at the enemy and it’s great for racking up decent damage with its 54 shells – at T5, MOE’s should be relatively easy to come by until more people complete the marathon.

I think you’ll have a lot of fun in this little tank at tier 5 and as more people earn it (which shouldn’t be too hard, the marathon for this one isn’t difficult really), it might even become as popular as the T67 as the TD of choice in its tier. WG seem to have got the balance just right with this one – there doesn’t seem to be a single thing to complain about – although I’m sure some will try!

  • First off I want to say superb blog! I had a quick question that I’d like
    to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find out
    how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.

    I’ve had a difficult time clearing my mind
    in getting my ideas out. I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first
    10 to 15 minutes are lost just trying to
    figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints?
    Kudos!

    • Hey there – thanks for the comment. In terms of putting things down in words, I guess my thing is that you don’t have to start at the beginning – if that makes sense? Start in the middle or at the end and then back fill. It’s often easier to start with something you know you want to say and then work around that – backwards and forwards. The rest will come and to be honest, getting the first part down (which ever part that might be) can often inspire the rest of the article – because by writing ‘something’ you open your mind to the subject and then I find that the words just start to flow.

      Also – don’t be scared of re-writing – I do it all the time, get the first draft down, read it on screen or even print it out – sometimes you see more on paper that you do on screen – use your ‘red pen’ to circle stuff you want to change. Reading it back to yourself as if you’re a person seeing it online also helps you to make sense of what you’re trying to say – and you’ll make changes to suit that thought process which makes it easier for the reader in the end.

      Just be confident in your knowledge of the subject that your writing about – make sure any ‘facts’ you’re using are correct and then just fill in the ‘flowery’ bits at the end once you’ve got everything down that you want. Get your first couple of articles out of the way and this becomes way easier. Remember, I’m not writing a novel – just a brief, informative opinion piece about something I’ve experienced. Don’t be disheartened if people don’t share your views either – everyone is entitled to their own opinions (right or wrong) – that fact that someone takes time to comment (good or bad) means that they’ve taken the time to read what you’ve written.

      Hope that helps and thanks for stopping by our site.
