the Chinese tree is completely useless gameplay-wise. It is only being introduces because of the huge MMO market in China, and to attract the players there more. Just look at this news http://worldoftanks....9-2012-warpath/

Most played tanks on other servers? KV-1 and KV-1S (probably the two most OP tanks in the game)
most played tank on China server? Type59! So putting Chinese tanks into the game = tons of money from Chinese people.

You are correct the new tech tree makes the chinese players happy so they can pay up ..that's kind of good for us aswell maybe with that money WG can expand on the game :)

You are right. For me adding few Chinese tanks to mix tree would be better. This tree is pretty much made all of the same tanks or modifications. On most tanks upgraded turret differs just with MG and this roll on back.
Its always about new players.

For me this tank fulfills the three main criteria to be a good assault heavy for clan wars

Speed: acceleration of a T110E5 combined with top speed of IS7, can't ask for much more than this

Firepower: same DPM as T110, ok accuracy and time (better than IS7) and good gold ammo (400mm HEAT is so much better than the APCR fired by IS7)

Survivability: really high hp pool and extremely sloped front armor that can get some lucky bounces from gold shells, on par with T110E5 I would say, and a nice turret armor.

All in all should be used a lot more than other recently added tier 10s

Makes IS-7 completely obsolete, fast, great firepower, good armor and insane HP pool for such a mobile low profile tank. 2,500 HP is no laughing matter for a "medium".

It is faster, has basically the same armour (slightly less angled)  the turret is the same the gun is the same (gold ammo) and it has MORE DPM and that is really good the only negative is wore hp pool

The only thing worse than the is 7 is gun depression and the armour in my opinion is slightly worse than the is7

You are also very awesome i will remain subbed for life you have my support.

It would seem it may be more of a paper project by the looks of it and have a glass cannon very much like the T30, this is just speculation however :).

IS7 is notoriously bad for corner work, its pike nose gets tore to shreds. The 113 angled is beastly frontal armor. Its got a huge HP advantage compared to other fast heavies. I think its OP as is and dont expect it to survive with 2500 hp on test.

ps. Armor is 120mm @ 68 degrees slope, its 2 degrees from auto-bounce vs everything bar HE. Straight front, its 273mm effective! With angling it beats IS-7 and T110E5, while being faster and much more HP.

For randoms its a matter of taste, BUT the difference in armor is much larger than you think. The 113 has an extreme angle that can be put to really good use and give you lots of bounces, while the angle of 121 won't stop tier 10 guns even with regular ammo.

For clan wars/tank companies the survivability is key. Lets say you rush with 5 121s into their 5 T110E5, they need only 5 shots to kill each of your tanks and are unlikely to bounce, while despite your superior dpm you also need 5 shots (and are more likely to bounce some shells) to kill each of them, so overall I would say the T110E5s are likely to win, now take 5 113s, you are almost as fast and you also need on average 5 shots per T110 even though you reload 1 second slower, BUT the enemy needs 7 shots to kill you and you have a reasonable chance to bounce at least one shot during the engagement.


Basically I feel that 121 tries too hard to be a jack of all trades and fails at being particularly good at anything, and in fact I think its weaker than T62A, while 113 is a solid heavy with good speed, dpm and usable front armor, which is essentially the combination that makes the T110E5 the most used tank in clan wars

Saying that it has slightly better armor than 121 is extremely wrong.

113 has 273 mm against AP/APCR and 320 mm against HEAT on the upper plate

121 only has 214 mm against AP/APCR and 240 mm against HEAT

If that's same to you.. Okay, I guess bouncing T10 heavy and medium guns reliably is same as bouncing T7 guns reliably???

The IS-7 has already been obsolete for a while. Worst performing tier 10 vehicle on all 4 servers. Compared to the other tier 10's it had the most to lose from the premium for credits ammo change and the least to gain.

I have made this video so you can these tanks more clearly but yes after I made these video I do see that for clan wars the 113 might be better but for pub stomping the 121 for me is better
