Greetings Tankers! 

 

A new Tier VI American TD is coming to the ST server: the T78. It’s a relatively mobile vehicle with a turret capable of rotating full 360 degrees. Another strength is the easy-to-handle and very efficient gun with excellent gun depression. The cost? The T78’s protection is almost non-existent, try not to rely on it! 

Spoiler

 

You're probably thinking, “ mobile American TD with a great gun but no armor. This sure reminds me of something!”

And you would be spot on. The T78 is definitely like the Hellcat in terms of gameplay, still, there are some differences. Less mobility means you won’t be able to follow your allies easily around the map or looking for someone to prey on. On the other hand, the gun on the T78 reloads faster and has better stabilization on the move than that of the Hellcat.

 

Taking all this into consideration, the best way to play the T78 is changing your position often and firing at your enemies using the ridgelines and map terrain. 

 

Spoiler

 

As always, the stats of the vehicle may change depending on the results of the test. Make sure to follow the news and may luck shine upon you in every battle!

 

Good Luck and Good Hunting, 

eek!

Just a worser hellcat, but still an intresting little tank. It will be nice to look at it. Kind of reminds me of the old Chaffee. :)

Maybe because of the Chaffee chassis it uses? It's a cute little tank, nonetheless.

Well it's a M36 turret on a Chaffee prototype hull and chassis. Technically it predates the Chaffee itself.

Looks like great LeFH bait.

Other than that, it's hard to judge it's merits versus e.g. the Hellcat without knowing the crew layout. Will this finally bring a crew trainer into the game that fits with the T67/Hellcat/Wolverine/Jackson crews?

On a general note, it'd be nice if these crew details could be released on all such announcements.

How this tank stacks to the Hellcat ?? 

Bet my [edited]it is just better.

Prenerf Hellcat was GREAT ....and WG money milkers love to put "old" tanks in the shop...

like Lorr , Ru 251 and stuff...

Waiting for russian su 122 54 ( tier 9 TD) as "NEW" tier 8 premium.

 Hello Pay2Win...

 

p.s. Show us the hidden statistics..until then..Pay2Win , cause you always put in shop just better version of the tech tree tanks.
