Hey guys!

 

Here is some new info from the Super Test: 

Testing of the first premium Swedish TD has started. It will be Tier VIII vehicle with a hydro-pneumatic suspension. As far as  gameplay goes, the vehicle will be similar to Tier IX and Tier X TDs. Since it can enter siege mode it will be a great vehicle for players who value precision and like to pick off their enemies from afar with the excellent 105 mm gun.

The exterior of the TD is not final yet, closer to the release it will have an additional loadout that will make it look more interesting.

Sweet, I love Swedish tanks!

And this would be a great crew trainer for the tier VIII-X tankdestroyers.

WG, you better implement the overmatch mechanics though, otherwise my awesome Swedish tank will be useless.

I like the idea of a premium Swedish TD however please make the crew exactly the same as the others in the tech tree or at least the higher tier ones.

 

The Swedish premium medium tank was a complete waste of effort imo as it cannot be used for crew training.

Surprised no one thought of that when the idea was proposed.

You can retrain any of the crew members into another major qualification than they currently have.

For instance I plan to play the Swedish tier VIII-X tank destroyers. Both my tier VI premium medium tank Strv m42-57 and the already mentioned tank destroyers have a three crew setup.

Although the medium has a driver and the tds instead field a radio operator, rather than recruiting a radio operator and train him from scratch I will retrain my driver into a radio operator and not let his already gained experience go to waist.

Only drawback you can only do this with 500 gold, not with silver.

 

As for this new tier VIII premium td, I think the crew setup will be identical to the regular tier VIII-X td as it looks like the same type of tank.

And having 288 pen on the regular ammo, just what we need in WoT, even higher pen numbers.

 

T8 tanks should have a maximum of 250 pen for the TD's.

I think we can all see the world of difference between this thing and an ISU (slow, big, mediocre camo). Not to mention that the DPM for the ISU will probably be a lot worse than on this thing.

 

All other T8 TD's pretty much have 248-ish pen, the reason why the BL-10 has more is that it's a high alpha gun so there is *much* more riding on that single shot than other TD's that get to put in multiple shots in the ISU reload.

That is why low alpha guns should generally not have super-duper pen compared to the big hitters that reload slow.

BUAHAHAHAHHAAH sureeeee :D

 

"Since it can enter siege mode it will be a great vehicle for players who value precision and like to pick off their enemies from afar with the excellent 105 mm gun"

 

So while in siege mode you will be easy target for all those sci-fi RU ships capable of snapshots on the move on range around 500m when you need to be stucked :D:D:D

Fixed.
