Even absolutelly non-skilled players, after a couple of non-penetrating shots in the face of heavy, switched to the "silver" shells. I always though this missions is the test of the player's skill, but this one looks like a luck check. Will u meet the fair enemy, who understands, that light tanks MUST NOT penetrate heavy in the face, or will not? And, by my own statistic, i'd be more lucky to meet a dinosaur in the city.

Really, is that mission a some kind of pervert joke from WG?

You're right, light tanks MUST NOT penetrate heavy in the face!

 

What tank are you playing?

If this one looks like luck, you don't want to see some of the ones you'll get in the future.

https://en.wiktionar...g/wiki/metaphor

"the light in the face" is a consumable term, includes all aspects of the game, where heavy should tank, but can not.

Okay enough post analysis, I think you're just playing either the wrong tank for this mission, or you have the right tank and you play it wrong.

What heavy are you using?

You've gotten to tier 9 on the Japanese heavy line. With half decent circumstances, you should have tanks available to complete the mission.

Japanese tanking perfectly. Before "silver" comes. KV3-4 can tank with a head at the long and even meduim distances. Again, against the common shells.

Ideally, you want a tank with good armour and few HP as odd as that might sound. For this reason, Japanese heavies and the KV-3/4 are not actually the best choices out there as they have fairly high HP. 

 

Here are a list of heavy tanks that I remember specific matches in which I would have completed this mission if I had it unlocked, and yes there are one or two surprises in here and I have included some non-HTs, maybe this will give you some inspiration:

 

HTs

T29

IS-3

IS-6

VKB

Maus

Black Prince

KV-5

IS-2

 

Non-HTs:

AMX AC48

Foch

AT15A

T28 Prot.

Super Pershing

IS-2 (I is stoopid)

You want to take tanks with flat surfaces when the MM will pair you with 2 tiers up most of the battles. Sounds smart AF.

Yep. 

 

IIRC there were a couple of muppets firing AP out of their 105 and 150mm derp guns at me. Didn't take too long to get over 4k damage blocked. 

 

Edit: Wait, wrong list. I am not awake apparently.

U tryed to predict my wishes, that i wants to tank a higher tiers. U wrong. That was stupid guess. With the "flat" armored japanese i perfectly tanks my own tier.
