You can win the WZ-111 this year with the Frontline mode for free. And that is just an Alpine Tiger without the silver cammo on it. But in every other aspect the same tank.

It has horrible main gun.

 

Do you really want to waste money on that?

+ most beautiful tank in the game

+ pref matchmaking

+ good mobility and armor for a heavy of its tier

+ camo already applied

+good moneymaker

 

- subpar gun only precise at melee range

- prone to burns and ammoracks

- same weakspots as all other is-3-type tanks and everyone knows them

Im considering buying it for my "I have all chinese prem tanks" collection.

I have WZ-111 but if i pass on AP would my collection be incomplete?

 

IMO no, but i am unsure

Alpine Tiger and SU130PM are two extremely different tanks.

 

The SU130PM (similar to the Skorpion G) has no armour and a good gun. It is a "glass cannon". It will rack up nice silver if unspotted, but once spotted is likely to die fast. If you play it badly it will punish your mistakes.

The Apline Tiger is merely a clown skin version of the WZ 111. The WZ 111 is therefore better value unless you want to pay more for the pretty paint job. The WZ 111/Alpine Tiger is a "Heavium", in that although classified as a heavy, it's armour is somewhat weaker than some heavies, while it is faster than many heavies. Because of it's speed it can make itself felt all over the battlefield. The best thing about it is pref MM so it sees a maximum of tier IX. As per most CN tanks gun handling is not especially good. This is no sniper.

But because of the semi-decent armour the WZ 111/Alpine Tiger is more forgiving of mistakes, and so for you OP it would be my recommendation over and above the SU130PM. Use the pref MM to go bully lower tier heavies or use the speed and armour to give enemy  mediums a nasty surprise in higher tier games.

No, it's a tier 8 so gets f'ed by MM.

Pros. It has 250 HEAT pen and looks great and never sees tier X.

Cons. It has 186 AP pen and +1 MM. So it sees +0 games most of the day vs lower plates and cupolas that are 220 to 240+ effective. So it won't make much credits.

 

That and it's basically a WZ-111. A tank that will be rather easy to get for free with FL.

No, because they're both tier 8 they must be exactly the same.

Which is better?

I would not recomend it only because you will have the chance to get it for free from Frontline mode.

I personally like the WZ-111 quite a lot, got it waaay back when there was a marathon for it and it's quite decent. I don't shoot a lot of premium ammo in it and with a bit of care and choosing your targets well the gun can be made to work.

 

The armour is decent, but ith as its moments, sometimes it either bounces like crazy or it gets penned like crazy. Makes decent credits, mobility and profile allows you to be quite flexible too.

 

Now I am an average player so keep that in mind when taking into consideration what I say. I don't think the fancy skin the Alpine Tiger variant gets is worth it though.

No way in hell. Don't waste your money OP. And, like other pointed out, you could get it for free playing FrontLine.

I have it already but wish I could buy that silver Camo for it  - its an odd tank to play but not bad brawler close up - if u don't have it already buy it for the Camo

I actually found the WZ quite good, and bought the Alpine after. However, as posted above, I see no point in you buying it when it's a confirmed Frontline award vehicle. My view of Frontline is that any half decent player (look at my stats now, discount a lot for where they would have been last year) can reach the top level fairly quickly. Frontline last year lasted about 4 weeks, I'd finished and stopped playing in around 2. Even with a limited time to play, most people will probably qualify for the WZ-111 before the year ends, though I don't have the details of the reward system to confirm that yet.

terrible outdated tank, useless against most new premium tanks

You can make it work, however consider a 50 - 50 gold loadout minimum.

 

The pros are the speed, the gun is pure horror and requiring gold is not a good moneymaker, still is better than 112 (enough said) :coin:

not worth it. I will try my best to win it with Frontline mode, but I would never buy a tank like that, when you could get other tier 8's with or without preferential mm that are a lot better. I don't care about collecting pixels for real money as well.
