It has

1-Armor (for crybabies who want to say it doesn't , try sniping them with a gun that has less than 120mm caliber and is not so accurate and good luck penning anything on that OP crap)

2-Speed

3-Gun

4-Reload 

5-Camo

Yeah buddy, let's nerf strv. Good thing we don't have any other hilariously broken t10 superheavies rolling around.

It is what I expect a TD to be, make it more gun unstable when move or turning if it needs longer to re target if you must but other than that deal with

Strv103B is trash TD, very situational and helpless in close range or after spotted. Siege mode is ULTRA ANNOYING.

TD is not supposed to be close combat , even then penning it can be a pain in the [edited].

Yeah unless it's looking straight at you, the armor doesn't really hold IF you know what you're doing (Hint: The sides are 30mm). On top of that, you can just load HEAT and penetrate its LFP with ease.

I can think of three tanks in T10 that have trouble dealing with this tank due to poor caliber/other issues. Those are Fv215B (120mm APCR, can overmatch sides though), BatChat 25t (Rarely you'll have a HEAT clip ready, but with mobility+camo you can play around this issue so not really a problem) and STRV itself (No HEAT). That's a total of three tanks out of how many (Might've forgotten some)?

It's fine.

 

Besides, this TD is pretty rare on the battlefield (at least I think so).

 

So, just leave it as it is.

Very annoying TD indeed.

Not sure whether it's broken or not, but annoying for sure.

The very concept of camping TDs is annoying though, reason why WG implemented arty.

In some way, they tried to fight an annoying concept with an even more annoying concept.

The intriguing part is that, somewhat, it worked.

It's a strong TD if it catches you in the open, especially if you have a smaller gun. In fact. it'll likely wreck you! But lets be honest, if it catches you in the open and you weren't aware it was there that's your mistake.

 

It's not OP though, most maps it's no problem at all, I don't really see it as much of a threat

...as if you know where it will be...it can be anywhere behind 100m of brush for all i know and since it's camo values makes it just as bad as to fight against like f.e. double bushing E25 just with almost triple the alpha there is nothing you can do really if it "catches you in the open". Sure it sucks in city maps like light tanks do but there are more than enough spots to hide it even on semi open maps even it just means hiding in a corridor shooting past your teammates using render distance.

Don't know what you are on but give me some of that i like it .

And back to your topic in case you didn't notice if you want to pen that OP thing (if you manage to spot it at first place with that OP camo especially if it is in a bush) you need to be at a certain angle and shoot that very tiny little line under the gun which if you are even 1 degree above or under it , it is gonna auto bounce everything unless you want to overmatch it which all guns that have more than 120mm have HEAT as gold ammo (except is-7) which makes them useless because of that anti-heat shield in front of the tank .

http://tanks.gg/curr...b/model?vm=live

Long story short : if you are not closer than mid-range good luck penning it unless you are driving RASHA meds with laser accuracy to snipe the cupola (also consider the fact that 120mm+  guns have horrible accuracy like is-4 or 113 for sniping the cupola)

Ah, thats thw problem, you just have no knowledge of how to deal with it. 

Anything above 120 mm like is4 and 113 doesnt need to snipe cupola at all, just shoot anywhere on the lowerplat, middle and middle of the tank above and below the gun. 

If you are not 120mm or higher, load heat and pen it pretty much everywhere, but for sure pens shoot the lower and mid plate or above the heatshield. 

Its really not that hard to pen this thing.

The only broken thing on it is the camo, that should be balanced.

So this issue boils down to you now knowing how to deal with the tank even when I gave you easy instructions how to deal with it.... And I never said you should be shooting HEAT at the upper plate, read my message again.

If it's been spotted the other side of the map then you know where it isn't.

With a little bit of map awareness, knowing where something isn't is the same as knowing where something is.

 

If it hasn't been spotted on a flank that's been won, it's usually safe to assume it's on the flank you are heading to, so don't drive over the open field to get there. It's really not rocket science.
