A flank is on fire? Your team needs support? Enemies need punishing? Call this tank!

That's actually kind of clever, though now I'm wondering how many countries use 112 as their emergency number.

 

That said, if a flank is on fire that's a pretty good indication 112 is already there.

Netherlands uses 112 as well.

 

Somebody feel like writing a short summary / review on this thing? How does it compare to the WZ1111? Looking and comparing stats with IS3 and WZ1111 on tanks.gg I am not too impressed yet...

Meh.

In my country the emergency services number is "WT auf E100".

Most countries in the world use 112, one exception is US (911) and Australia (000). But even in those cases, 112 is redirected to the appropriate number. So pretty a good pun.

As far as I remember, it started as an EU decision and was consequently copied by GSM networks as a worldwide standard.

We used to have 000 here, but switched over to 112 due to kids playing with phones often hitting 000.

112 has super good armor, basically 113 upper plate which is much better than WZ-111. Both has pref mm and 111 has a better gun, so if you want to be making even a bit more credits/do more damage go for 111, 112 has better armor but that is pretty much about it. I like 112 but the gun is a bit derpy and penetration bad meaning you have to shoot more HEAT.

Well, it might be useful if this new MM is a hit.

Well i do own quite a lot of premium tanks and i can say its one of the worst tier 8 premium. You cant hit a barn from more than 50 meters away, aiming time is horrible, and you can hardly penetrate other tier 8's with standard ammo, frontally. So unless you need it to train crew for the nice 5A standing at tier X, stay away from it.
