Nice. Was kinda hoping they would do that to the Polish HT since the tech tree was around the corner and they had sold a few already. But I'll take that over it tbh. Pleasant suprice. Wonder if the missions will be on pair with the Italian one etc. Or if they will try something new.

Does anyone know the stats of the new tank? I hope it's not a buffed Caernarvon, since the Caern is already one of the strongest tier 8 tanks.

Current stats from tanks gg compared to the standard tank: https://tanks.gg/compare/caernarvon?t=caernarvon-x (possibly still subject to change)

Statewise, it looks pretty decent.
Not as good as current Caernarvon, gun is worse due to lower alpha and dpm, while mobility is only very slightly better.

Turret armour is unknown, couldn't check that on phone.
Hull is identical.
Note: it have 380 viewrange to Caernarvon so 400.

My verdict, it is a ever so slightly worse Caernarvon that plays exactly the same.

Which means, it will be one of the better T8 heavies in game, since Caernarvon is one of the better ones.

Bit of a shame if its a September start, since I'll have less than 2 weeks to do it :P

Ah well, can always no-life it if its XP based :trollface:

Works fine for me, its the same as the Centurion AX turret so 254mm.

Depends on how you look at it. It's got better armor on the turret if you count the spaced armor plates. But in general, it's the same. But it has the 20 prd. So more pen, rof and dispersion. But less alpha and dpm etc. I would not say its a buffed Caernarvon on most aspects. But still better than some of the old pre-buff variants of it. As that tank has had how many buffs and turret changes now?

And once again WG decides that every player that participates should get a tank that WG likes. I guess allowing players to pick their own tank is too difficult... :facepalm:

Patch 29th August with Polish line + Marathon?  If numbers don't pick up WG will be worried.

What? Are you implying that you usually spend your vacations doing something other than playing tonks? :amazed:

Any weakspots/spaced armour?

Angles for autobounces?

Is all front turret 254?

You get a 5 sec reload with Rammer.

So it will be good at permanent tracking opponents, an asset that is rarely mentioned but rather powerful. 

Accuracy of .31 makes it possible to do so at 100m range.

 

The only bad thing about the tank is the 230 alpha.

If it had 280 like Caernarvon, it would probably just be a straight upgrade.
