Greetings Tankers

Today on the Supertest we cheer on a Swede that can go really fast. The Lansen C is a medium with a truly outstanding power-to-weight ratio of 28.4 hp per ton allowing for a top speed of 50 km/h. Even better, the Nord accelerates quickly and sustains it well on any ground type. For firepower, the tank has an impressive 10.5-cm barrel (we’re talking caliber, not length) dealing 320 points of damage per shot. To compensate for an alpha that is above average for a Tier VIII medium, the Lansen’s accuracy and aiming parameters prevent it from being an efficient sniper.

The protection of the Lansen C isn’t outstanding. Meaning it’s better to use your high mobility and excellent gun depression of -10 degrees in combination with the terrain layout.

Therefore, the Lansen C is a vehicle for claiming key positions on the map first. At the start of the battle, you may drive it to a location with a nice view of the enemies leaving their base and/or going to the sweet spots on the map. This is one ‘social’ tank: don’t hesitate to ask for support from your allies, as it handles one-on-one clashes poorly. You can provide excellent support too, with solid mid-range high damaging shots.

As always, the tank’s stats are subject to change depending on test results. Follow the news and best of luck in your battles!

So...is it premium or a standard vehicle? I expect it to be standard...but just wondering, because without high tier MT branch it would be largely pointless as a premium :/

...and we already have the Primo Victoria as a crew trainer/high tier premium.

Please bear in mind, the tank has to go through testing and balancing before any final decisions can be made.

You don't say "The" infront of a Swedish word that is already bent like this "-en" :)

 

Lans = Lance

Lansen = The Lance

The Lansen = The The Lance 

 

:)

 

Dispersion needs improvement for a paper med.

Ehm, certainly there already is a plan how to release the tank. That has nothing to do with testing/balancing.

 

Either this is the implicit announcement of a medium hightier branch in the swedish techtree, or a pretty pointless premium tank. Lack of information kinda tells me that it is the latter.

Or the information given means it's a tank in testing and balancing before any further info is shared?

So if the tank looks balanced you will announce the Swedish medium branch? :D

These announcements normally tell us upfront what type of tank it is, e.g. 29 October "Today we’re launching the Supertest for two new vehicles, the HWK 30 and the T95/FV4201 Chieftain. They are, respectively, a German Premium Tier VIII light tank and a British reward Tier X heavy."

 

In the meantime however...

 

       What is a Nord?


 

Is this an inadvertent announcement of a new French tank as well, or is it just another name for Lansen C or perhaps it's engine?

Ah, OK....not a term I've ever heard used before..."He's Nordic" I certainly hear, but "He's a Nord" isn't commonly used here.

The French company Nord Aviation on the other hand DID actually work on some tank contracts, hence my confusion.

Please, any news regarding premium ammo/consumables rework is very much wanted, regardless if it's just a general hint or a date. Anything! :unsure:

Just wait until WG Fest, maybe they'll announce it then. It's something that they will announce either on a event or with a separate article, not just a supertest thread. Spamming every supertest thread won't do anything, and even if they reply they will certainly just say "wait until we have more information to tell about it", so...

The tank looks interesting; a mobile medium. If they buff the gun parameters (dispersion, aim time etc) it could be a real menace. And if its a regular tank with a mini branch to tier 10 it could rival the Leo 1. Swedish tanks were pretty cool, tbh, just check out the UDES program: http://www.ointres.se/udes.htm.
Maybe they could fit in the Ikv 91-105 as well.
