Hello dear comrades!

 

I am currently struggling a lot to defeat the top tier Japanese heavies due to their Yamamoto armour and their huge naval guns that always manage to do some kind of damage.

Are they any suggestion how the comrade must defeat those fat sumo tanks in World of Tanks?

 

Thank you comrade, see you in goulag,

starwarser007

1: are you 100% sure you can't flank them?

2: really sure?

3: ok then press 2

4: still can't pen? run away and let your top tiers deal with them.

These Japanes heavies are one way or another OP no? I have the E100 and it get's completely annihilated by those heavies. 

Hope the E100 will match their performance soon or I will kick the E100 out of my garage:izmena:

1. Flank it if you have a tank with great mobility
2. Let your high tiers deal with it or if you the same tier as the sumo boi bait him to come into the open so arty can deal with it
3. Press 2 and shoot at flat armor

Well comrade, Jap HT represent the imperialism itself: stronk against singles, so you need to unite to fight it. And load stronk ammo too.

Press 2 for victory. There is no other way. Tracking won't help, those guys repair faster than you can reload in your inferior foreigner Super Heavy.

This was last night and I just happened to screenshot out of disbelief (see minimap - our cap circle). I knew as soon during load screen this was not gonna be fun; 3No. type 5's per team, ours all went beach, 1 of theirs went down the 5 line the other two down the 3 line. I played active trying to support our lights/meds cos I knew I couldn't do much against the Type 5's. After getting a kill, I could see the Type 5's were just rolling through unchallenged so I had to react and at least try to defend the base. I tried all 3 ammo types against those tanks but I couldn't pen them frontally on the lower or upper plates (I do have the top gun mounted) and soon after died to a flanking Bat-chat.

Pretty much a microcosm of how WoT can be in Tier 8 in terms of players choices, their reactions, matchmaking and the state of certain tanks.

That's what I hate most about those Japanese heavies: they're often found in a platoon.

So even if one of them shoots you can't rush them as the other ones might just completely wreck your tank

Load the premium ammo. Thanks to WG, it seems to be the only way to pen their "weakspots".
