Fellow tankers!


Tier by tier, we’re moving down the Polish branch. Today it’s time for the 40TP Habicha—the Tier VI medium tank—to roll out onto the closed test.

The 40TP Habicha is a mobile medium with a 90mm gun which stands out due to its alpha damage of 240 points and decent rate of fire. Yet gun handling is far from ideal - the dispersion of 0.42 prevents efficient sniping, and the aim time of 2,7s isn’t favorable. The tank is relatively fast. It can quickly accelerate to its maximum speed of 50 kp/h and sustain it thanks to a power-to-weight ratio of 17.4 hp per ton.


The armor of the 40TP Habicha doesn’t protect this tank from enemy fire much (mind you, we’re talking about a Tier VI medium). You can compensate for this by making use of the ridgelines and slopes with Pole’s gun depression of -8°.

Spoiler


This is the pre-Supertest state of the vehicle. If the trials show the stats need some tuning, we’ll make adjustments.


Follow the news and good luck for every battle!

Interesting tank, the armor seems decent, with quite a bit of hull down potential, mobility seems alright, altough we don't have the ground resistances yet which can change it.

The gun seems fairly bad though, .42 acc is even at short distances unreliable at best and essentially awfull at longer distances, here we miss further gun handling stats, it has the worst DPM at it's tier looking at the mediums and while it does have a bit more pen the difference it quite small compared to others and doesn't really make up for it. It's VR is standard for it's tier. All in all I think this tank will need a bit of a buff to it's gun (both DPM and accuracy and the aim time should be lowerd to atleast 2.5 seconds as this looks more like a 100mm gun then a 90mm.) Because right now I don't feel like there's anything making this tank special, stand out or otherwise a keeper.
