How does Mikhailov get the heaviest armor with the lowest weight and best speed? And a flamethrower? :blink:

(And if it gets those stats, this thing'd be monstrous.)

it looks like we get Tseits design! But 90° Turretside and rear-armour with this amount of amo behind> many 1shoots and/or broken amo-racks.

Actually, most compact design looks to be Pereversev's. Simply due to the being much, much shorter in length. Second heaviest listed. Tseits' sounds very tough, but not quite invincible.

It had two turrets vs Mihailov's one.

I would prefer the Mikhailov, its only 3m high good all around armor and topspeed of 50km/h.

The Tseits... i duno, turret look like it will suffer the german syndrom...

Either way, it will have a 1200 HP engine. Can't wait to hear this baby in action  :Smile-playing: This is defenatly an improvement from the 600 HP of the KV-3  :Smile_great:

The entire turret is coverd in ammo

Penetration=high chance of hitting the ammo

Still i wonder what the armor values will be... 130mm armor for a T8 tank?.... even IS3 had better then that

Don't worry about that.. its a russian tank.. in the worse case it will be as good as a KT...  :P

I had all T8 vehicles in game and one I hated most while driving it was IS-3. That tier is actually quite well balanced, and while I did not like IS-3 playstyle that does not mean it is bad tank. Same for you and KT - uf you don't like it, don't play it. I will gladly grind to KT again.

Same here. I loved KT and T32 as they suited my playstyle

The KT was strong in its hull wich was very difficult to penetrate and the T32 in its turret

The IS3... was penetratable on both turret AND hull without difficulties.

Just like the T54, you need to use the IS3 on close distances and prefered in numbers


Anyway, i asked in Q&A about why they took Tseits design. Its pretty intresting, as for example, Tseits design does not have the best armor

I would liked it as well if they had shosen Mikhailov design but I guess these specs are simply too OP. Combining 150 mm armor with 50 km speed would probably too powerfull for its tier   <_<

Kruchenykh looks to me as the best design. At least it has some armor
