Anyone know the currently fastest tanks to drive underwater? I would like to attempt a "climb" from one island to another, but my BC25tAP just can't seem to make it across. What determines the speed of a tank under water?

brumbarr had a thread about this recently where he took a deeper look. Relevant link: http://forum.worldoftanks.eu/index.php?/topic/633999-why-are-french-tanks-slow-in-water/

I remember the Blackdog being good at this but I think they might have made a global change regarding this as all my previous quick tanks run like a 2 legged dog in the water.

Surely the TOG would simply traverse the ocean between islands?

Lttb, seen a video of it making it from the end of the "arty" peninsula on Fjords to the useless island in the middle of the bay - just!

I guess Mouse is good due to high positioning tower so you can breath. Also Type 5 might be good idea !

I don't think so because they never make it back to the surface.

If you use the right driver perks/ skills you may get just that extra bit of speed maintained.

Not the Valentine AT. I just drowned for the first time in over a thousand games by falling through the ice after I slid down a hill. Damn shame, as I was about to score a really nice ambush kill. :P

Wargamjoob pls.

 

(Yes, it was part of the Maus proposal that river crossings would be done by sealing up the tank, fitting the Schnorkel and powering the diving Maus from another on the shore.)

I'd say the Type 2 Ka-Mi.

Spoiler

Oh wait, submarine, not boat.

 

Guess that tier 10 Weezee then.

PtW×Terrain Resistances.

Which is exactly the reason why the french ones are horrible at it; poor PtW and poor terrain resistances.

german tanks all the way you just need to replace th "E"- xxx  with "U"-xxx 

the fastest might be the U-25, U-50, U-75 and U-100

Those would be all better choices than U-96, that would drown just when you were thinking you've reached safety.
