Hello fellas!

You might find the words that i am going to write as a cryings of baby,but the fact is the armo of Matilda is thick as hell ! To explain with examples,you can easily destroy a tier IV tank with PZ IV H. I even destroyed tier VI "AMX ELC bis" in one round of firing but when it comes to Matilda,god,you cant even give a point of damage no matter how many rounds of shoots.I've contacted to the customer services about it and they told me to write it here,So i would like to read and discuss your opinions about Matilda.

 

May the Lord of the Tanks be with you!

PZ IV H usually comes armed with the little derp gun which if you are firing HE you can hurt the Matilda with. It sounds like you might be firing AP which only have 64mm pen and yes, you'll bounce off a Matilda all day doing that.

What gun are you using on the Pz 4H?

If you're using the derp gun and firing AP, you won't pen it as the Matilda has 75mm armour on the front and sides. With the 75mm gun that has 110 pen, the Matildas armour does not hold up as well.

Matilda only really has decent armour vs tier 3s and a few tier 4s, but its not what it used to be.

I got a Mat IV when she was on sale.

After 3 rounds, sold it back.

 

Too slow and the armour was hyped. 75mm all around, but people know where to shoot and how to shoot. Alternatively, there's "skill ammo" for those too lazy to do either.

The armour and speed doesn't make the matilda IV bad, its the garbage pen. If it had 100/ ~140 on the AP/ APCR it would be be rather decent

It's no surprise if you are using the derpgun, you just click tanks of the same tier and low and they are dead. Use a proper gun and learn to aim.
