I made a test calculation about one question which I found interesting.

If we assume that two same tanks facing each other in duel have the same probability of winning or losing (50%:50%), a question is: Can I ask that question for two different tanks?

Or: If "weaker" tank is full health and it is in a duel with "stronger" tank, how much stronger tank has to be damaged so that both tanks have same chances in that duel?

I am writing "weaker" and "stronger" because it is not clear right away which one is weaker and which one is stronger if both tanks are the same tier and same class (this depends at least on health and gun)

Next example is for Type 64 and Panther II and here it is clear which one is the stronger tank.

Type 64: HP 580, reload for 2.85 sec, damage 115

Panther II: HP 1500, reload for 6.33 sec, damage 240

If Type 64 is full of HP, Panther II has to be on 690 HP (46% of HP) so that both tanks have the same chance of winning the duel.

(Because Panther kill type in 18.99 sec in three shots, and for that amount of time Type makes 690 damage in 6 shots)

(Note: this calculation is very precise because it does not use DPM and it is calculated for single shot)

This calculation is good for distances up to 100m because up to that distance probability of hitting the target is about 99%)

But if we calculate distance between tanks and gun dispersions we get different results which depend on distance (of probability of hitting the target tank, with big assumption that every hit makes damage)

(Next three results are using DPM in calculation and because of that there is difference in calculation for 100m)

So, if Type 64 is full of health and in duel with Panther II on these distances, Panther II can get in duel with 50:50 chances if it has next amount of health:

100m, 617 HP (41%) – (in calculation without DPM it is: 46%)

200m, 581 HP (39%)

300m, 547 HP (36%)

(In this calculations probabilities of hitting target tank are taken from calculations I make and publish at http://memorygamesen...t-calculations/

and also, these calculations uses next DPM values: 2420.75 for Type 64 and 2272.8 for Panther II)

My conclusion for this example would be: Type 64 is not so small tanks as Panther II is so good sniper.
