On Facebook today WG announced the STG a 122mm, 390 Alpha Damage Russian Medium, the STG. I'm kind of surprised of this new tank being announced so soon, after the Chrysler. We just don't have enough tier 8 premiums do we? What are your thoughts? Read the full stats here.

But Russia don't have as many premium mediums as Germany has. So they need more. But even with a 122mm. It seems like a crappy Obj 416 with a bad limp and a dead loader.

Based off that video that was posted on this tank, it doesn't look like the turret can turn fully. Jury remains out here.

Also, there is one important statistic missing in these supposedly complete stats: The dispersion on the move.

Looks like an Obj416 that trades in its gold pen to get more effective armour and better gun depression.

Yes the turret looks weak if you are looking at armour thickness but from the side on profile of the tank it looks to be extremely well angled.

It will probably come down to the mantlet, in the armour profile it looks to have spaced armour over turret armour but in the actual game model it looks to have basically leather or something around the mantlet as opposed to actual armour.

 

At close ranges looks like the UFP will be autopen but given some distance where the tanks aren't looking down on it then it could be bouncy.

Guess which one generates more money for WG.

Did we need another thread on it.

 

Yes it's another premium, but apart from that it's nothing scary or OP, pretty much every tank it faces will be able to reliably pen this thing and it's a tank that has some strengths, tempered by some weaknesses so should be overall fairly well balanced.

This is another point, people complain about them making premiums, but at the end of the day people generally like new content and people buy these premiums so WG will keep making them.

 

Think QB made the point last year that despite all the issues with the game, the biggest draw for WOt players that saw the number go up is new content, i.e new tanks.

 

As they can't keep making new whole tech trees and that takes time, they drip feed in these premiums every month.

this is my take on it.... they have documents for tanks but they cannot make tech-tree out of it as these tanks are similar and from different nations.... im sick of people bitching about new content, even if its for money... it makes the game exciting with each new tank and i actually like tier 8 the best because of variety of tanks on battlefield...

As long as the tanks are balanced and it doesn't draw too much time away from other stuff (and I think with all the recent massive changes they have done whilst releasing premium it probably doesn't) then I'm not too bothered about it and like you say you see knew variety in game and you get something you might want to buy.

 

Obviously unbalanced premiums is an issue, but not every new premium is unbalanced, this tank being an example that looks fine, the recent French TD as well also looks far from OP.

Am I the only one who thinks that 'new content' should be something else than expensive premium tanks?.. like.. I dunno, exciting new game modes, amazing new maps...
