Was watching a Quickybaby YT video other day showing a T95 driving onto the open field on Malinovka, this tank blocked some 33K of damage as the Reds tried to hit him on the front, quite a feat.

So what is your all time record, not well armoured tanks but lightly armoured, paper thin, such as TDs, LT etc.

My highest is 4.9K in a STRV 103b.

Once hit a Bat.-Châtillon 155 58 in my pre nerfed ISU 152

From about 50m and it hit but didn't penetrate, arty then went on to kill me!

Just interested.....

Have a nice day

Because the game has stagnated.

4.2k in the Cromwell, it's surprisingly effective hull down vs tier 4's.

4k in the SU-100Y

 

My overall record though is (if I remember correctly, was 20k something) 24 or 26k blocked in the KV-4

It's a bit special like "two layers of angled cardboard special" so...no.

The Strv 103B bounces every non heat shell of calibre below 180.

So pretty sturdy imo.

In KV-4, that's pretty impressive.

I find the SU-100Y having surprisingly trollish armour.

Well that angling makes it special and since it's basically autobounce angles all over the front much skill can't be involved bouncing shells.

If you're interested to know, I once bounced a full T-57 Heavy clip against a Batchat 25t at around 150m.

The guy is probably still laughing about it.
