VKB or Maus ideally. The mission isn't about doing tons of damage (unless you are a super unicum), you need to be able to bounce a lot. I did mine in VKB with around 4k damage done. The rest was bounced/received.

unfortunately, from what I saw in replays, apparently one of the 2 "dumb" tanks(type or maus). Obviously as top tier in 3/5/7 and no arty.

 

I'm close to finishing the 3rd and the thought of having to grind to those bricks doesn't appeal to me at all. On the contrary.

 

Otoh - I have problems doing even the x2 bounce in a ST-I(tank which I picked exactly for missions and which definitely has a very respectable armor as top tier). So I really doubt I'll be able to do all of 4th in the ST-I. Though God knows I'd like to, as I hate playing heavies...

Did mine in VKB too.

Just baited shots that would be impossible to pen while holding a corner. As long as there is nobody spamming HE then job done.

Problem with the IS-4 is that the armour is more troll.

There are times it'll shrug off JpE100 HEAT rounds, then a tier 8 will drive past you and pen you frontally with auto aim :amazed:

If i remember correctly:
Maus, Lakeville, lakeroad. Farm blocked.

Would probably also work with Type5

(Going lakeroad in a top tier heavy will likely cost you the victory, but whatever gets the missions done)

Did the requirments few times in IS-4. Maus looks like the best choice because of the great armour layout and high HP pool.

Seems you've been lucky on this.. I win barely anything with that tank due to constant premium ammo spam in the turret front, combined with teams that simply melt away.

I did mine with the Kranvagn. Have been using it for the second campaign as well but it's not working as well nowadays. It's hard to block HE. :child:

LOL @ the T34 that bounced 10 times. He really didn't want to give up :teethhappy:

Maus is king on that mission.  Although E100 will do it quite readily as well if you shake it to the left and shake it to the right.

The kranvagn seems like the best option for blocked dmg missions for coalition.  I cant think of any other CZ/IT/FR/Swe tank that can do it better.  (Emil 2 obviously counts too, Emil 1 only as top tier)

I dont know what ppl are smoking but Type 5 & Maus are the 2 single best tanks for the mission.

 

To be fair its doable in almost any armored tier 10 tank and some tier 9s but those 2 are the best suit.

Not really because people see them and press 2 or load HE.

The mission is best with tanks that people think they can pen so don't want to load HE, then they sit there not penning while you bait them.

And I didn't want to kill him. I loved that guy. :girl:

It's just too bad that you seem to have to find one of those extra super specials to do missions like these. Block missions are dumb.

I think, beside the obvious Maus and Type 5, a good option is S.Conq. The gun allows you deal some good amount of dmg and the turret is OP so it will bounce everything that is not HE!

This is why VKB works, as long as they aren't too close and don't shoot HE. This tank is capable of bouncing some gold too. I did the mission on Karelia, with rather long-range shooting, making sure I keep enemy lower tiers alive.

I did HT-15 for the Obj in the Type 4. So I don't see why you should have less luck with the Type 5. Just use the side and tease vs -2 guns and only shoot guns that can pen you. Ignore the guns that actually do give you block damage. Might still take a few games to even get close. But once you find that tier 8 platoon that has 212 pen and still used AP. That's what you need.
