As most people probably already saw in their updated gameclient: The next clanwars reward tank is chinese and called 121B. Its basicly a better armored version of the 121 with a RoyalOrdonance (390) alpha gun and finally some gundepression which doesn't suck so much (-5°;). The gun is accrurate (0.32), the upper plate is 130mm thick(but not as angled as 113), the gundepression is okay (glorious compared to the 121), so where is the drawback? Well...the dpm. Its behind the E50M's Dpm. Not even 6 rounds a minute will result in an 8sec+ with rammer,vents,BiA and foods. The gunsoftstats aren't special (exactly the same as on the 121) neither is the mobility (bit worse than 121) and the lfp is still rly bad 80mm. But since the 907 received a quiete significant buff before it was given out, changes are still possible.

For more information about it: http://tanks.gg/wot/...21b#compare:121

 

So, what are your thoughts about this tank?

As far as I remember, the gun bloom on the 121b was waaaay worse the on the 121, which makes a medium tank hard to play. (I can't check tanks.gg right now cause I am on my phone). The awful dpm doesn't bother me, it's the gun handling, I have the T-62A and the Centurion AX, and I don't like the Cent AX just because how poor the bloom on that gun is compared to the T-62A. Anyways, in the last year's big campaign, the T96(something, the one with 400 alpha) got buffed after the campaign, so I'm sure the 121b will receive a buff as well, hopefully to the gun bloom. Other then that, I think the 440 alpha on the 121 is more unique then the 121b in itself, I wish the 121b would have lower dpm but T-62A level oof gun handling. Too bad they didn't make the Chieftain to be a CW reward tank, the salt and tear rivers would have been so funny, I love drama.

The gunhandeling could be worse (It has got the same gunhandeling as the Centurion AX) but with the 113 in the game there is no reason to get the 121B since it gets more or less the same mobility but with less frontal armor, a much worse turret, less health and a much worse gun (the 113 reloads faster while having higher alpha)

It is pretty much a crappier version of the 112 which already is a much crappier version of the 113 so have fun in that, luckily there are other tanks you can choose from.

Don't worry, I can bet that it will be buffed to pretty insane level when campaign will come close to end. Same as it happened with 907.

too early to comment.

 

But as for now, unless it gets buffed, it is completely useless.

it needs a serious DPM buff as well as a bit of love for the terrain resistances, and it'll do just fine. (Whether they gonna buff it or not, I'm gonna choose it, just because I love chinese tanks).
