Hi guys

 

but stuck on this mission, been trying on and off for a few weeks,  been trying in T29, VK100P, VK45.02P and IS7 but 1 bounce and every shell after is HE so getting a bit frustrated

 

I am amazed how many rounds of HE tanks are carrying nowadays, even had a Bat chat twice attack me with HE clip, cant imagine he has enough ammo for that !!

 

Any tips?

 

*edit*

I did HT-12 in the first and second sets in T29 and T32 respectively, and third set HT-12 I completed in the E5. You just need one idiot in a Borsig with the big gun taking a few shots at your turret.

I feel with you... after some months I finally managed it in the VK45.02B on prokorovka. Top tier, no arty and mostly mediums on other team and I just drove along the 1-line. There is a small depression there so they can not hit you in the sides easily. Got spotted pretty soon and everyone was just shooting at me. Managed 9K damage blocked, 4.5 K damage done and 3K assisted damage..

 

As with all missions the MM decides pretty much if you have a chance or not..

I've been stuck on this one for ages too. Even with a hull down monster like STI, you need the stars to align.

 

I suspect it maybe easier to do at a lower tier. T29 maybe. I am still working up to T29.

 

You just have to get super lucky.

VK-B or ST-1, but it depends more on the ... lets say persistence ... of the enemies than the tank.

 

Like having a JT-8.8 firing like 30-40 shots at the front armor of a VK-B at 400 meters. Distance + side cover is your biggest friend for that mission.

 

Better to let smaller calibers shoot you as they generally have less HE and their HE hurts much less (if at all). 105mm HE can already hurt quite a bit over time, and 150mm will do 200-300 damage per shot consistently even at strongpoints.

Use a tank with troll armour. When people see some hulldown monster or hentaimobile, they don't usually bother with usual means of attack.

Get something like E5 so people would think they have a chance.

Op, what you haven't told us is what stage you are on? If for the Stug Kv-220 if you have it or T-150.

HE or HEAT? If batchats are indeed shooting HE at you, rejoice, go on to win the battle and just try for the mission next time

hey, finally did it, 9.5k blocked in E75 on bridge in mountain pass

 

and the real pleasure of this was I was blocking gold spamming Maus, Maus and 263.  only did 2.4k damage, but loads assistance damage as I kept tracking the maus from grille and str 103b on hill behind farming the 2 maus and keeping me alive, without them I have no chance

 

ahh, op tanks spamming gold and losing, don't you just love I when that happens lol

mmm, in hindsight is-6 might have been good but I sold it

oh, I was happy and we did win, but it was just an extreme example of the HE meta I was having.  what can you do when autoloading fast tanks are spamming HE, laugh?

I'm miffed that WG didn't change HT12 (T55). no doubt this mission was significantly easier when arty was lobbing AP shells. a couple of bounces from arty shells and you half way there.
