Eccchhh. Kinda not surprising, just wondering how long it'll take them to reverse the side armor nerf. And boost the gun handling...

So the tank with no lower plate and only a small cupola weakspot is going to have over a 300 effective upper plate?

 

Seems legit.

120 mil should still be enough to sidescrape against tier X.

And frontal armour buff is actually quite good, mb it wont be a dust gatherer after all.

It's Russian so it's legit, you know that.

WG want to only have heavies that have no viable frontal weak spots in 90% of the engagements (frontal) and you'll just have to flank them if you want to do damage.

Wrong.

The only thing you need  to do is load your 340 pen HEAT shell and you good to go! :justwait:

At least you can pen the front hull when he is at a slight angle towards you along the steel wire. More then you can with the 268 4. But as we have seen on every video of it so far. No one knows where to hit it. As I also did see with the 2 man platoon I had in my team last night with them. Center hull line bounced everything. Low or high. So I don't know why they wanted to buff that more. 

 

Hull down it's... like any HT tbh. Nasty to deal with. So again I don't get the buff tbh. It will still be as nasty for most to try and pen even with the old value. 

 

But super test and all that. Subject to change... or not. I suspect they will test it up until the point the missions are opened. So that's 6 weeks.

The idea is good, just in the game, this will never happen. Till you just had to change to gold ammo, and pen every tank from front.

All super heavy class is just a joke. Maus, E100, is4?, type5 all have many weakpoints in front.. and most of them dont need the gold ammo, to pen them. Shame.. With this overbalanced medium and other tanks penetration value, just simply kill all type of heavies. I know, many less skilled player can cry about.. noo type is op, i cant pen him with ap..so the WG nerf the type and buff the penetrations.. and.. this crybabies will be happy.

I would be the most satisfied, if finally the heavies could be a really heavy tank. In this game now, the main parameter is just the DPM. Load the gold, and you kill everybody.

Looks like bait to attract people to cheat so they can hand out another ban wave.

HEAT does not like heavily sloped armor and/or spaced armor very much, it's good on flat armor.

This is the kind of crap that encourages HE/SH spam, nevermind premium ammo.

Well curently anything can pen it on front and since its hard to get, it deserves to have good armor.

If it tries to angle, his frontal armor will be weaker(since U shaped front), so it will still be balanced

Well, its a rashn tonk, so i dont find this unlikely to go through...

 

They could at least buff the chimera though (and stug IV, t28 concept, t55a) since they are already touching one of the rewards, which at the moment is truly awful tank on the level of indien panzer, with mission set the difficulty of the 260 set... which at that time was the best t10 tank in the game :D

TBH 260 is still quite good. Used it on Ranked a lot. Its propably the speed that keeps it relevant.

 

Its hard not to make an impact when you have the speed to relocate like a medium but with better armor.
