Even if it's surprising: at an angle of 90° and a distance less then 500m, it certainly would. At least, as seen here, at the sides or the back of the Char.

The point in your joke was that the Char has been hit by the side. There, a straight hit on short distance would be a possible winner. Upfront, where armor is thickest, the gun wouldn't stand a chance against the heavy plated tanks, that's right. But it's logical - that gun was developed against lightly armored tanks and tankettes.
