This is ridiculous.


Even with gold ammo it is impossible to pin.
I just saw one with 0% dammage after the battle and he received a lot of shots.


I can see 2 reasons for WG creating this OP tank :
.To oblige people to use gold ammo => oblige them to have a premium account.
.To make players rush to buy this new tank, spend gold to train the crew, and within 2 months the tank will be (hopefully) nerfed.


I started to play this game with enthousiasm and used to ask my friends to come play WoT.
Not any more.

No offense, but didn't you learn anything in your 7k battles? If you can't penetrate a hostile vehicles front, try to get around it and go for the sides and/or the back, it's that easy.

AT 2 has huge frontal armor, that's right, but it's also slow as hell (20 km/h) and turns just as slow (20 °/second). So it's just the same as with every heavy armored TD... Get closer, get around and it's gone.

Somehow WG should oblige players to use brain!
Especially those who have many thousand battles.

Lol OP. AT-2 is the worst experience in the new british TD Line. It has horrible mobility, horrible agility, horrible gun.

there a lot of TDs which are hard to pen from the front. Wanna know WHY ? because they are tend to be sllugish, easy to outmanouver and (smart) arty players know that TDs are to be wasted first. Just let the small light flank it and kill it. But i know - you just want to pen everything from the front, without any tactic involved. How brilliant !

Not impossible, I just got ganked by a T-34 that stopped comfortably by one of my exposed sides, once there he just detracked me with every shot and in a short while my tank was just a memory of the past.

You still got problems if you have a bad gun because the 101 rear armor, thats more than most tier 5 tanks have on the front!

Heaven forbid that the OP should check out the thread that already exists for hints on how to deal with the AT-2. It would seem that the mantlet is quite thin, for example.

I just got the AT-2. And like the AT-15A. Tier 4/5 derps with gold ammo can do massive damage to it head on if they hit right. The little hole in the gun plate is where I always get shot. Not sure of the armor value there. But the AT-15A got the least amount of armor there to. And that's where I always shoot it.

And anyone know the armor value on the hatch dead center at the front?

And chip away 10HP at a time?

Anyway, so far I've found that the best tactics to deal with one is to take potshots at the cupola when it's looking away/ you are hulldown, or shooting into the thin inner side hull through the front of the tracks when it's angled (thus bypassing the sideskirt).

Every single one of these I've seen killed has been to Arty. Sometimes multiples in a game.

It amuses the hell out of me that everyone is complaining about the AT-2, and not the real murder machine that is the Alecto.

One of my clan mates has one and we went to a training room to experiment, I took a T34/85 and did not use any gold ammo.

Its very pingable but it is NOT invulnerable from the front, and this is how it should be. In a turning fight it stands no chance at all.

The cupola is weak, the crew hatch is week and I even managed to get a shot through the mantlet.
