Dear everybody,

 

Please share the joy with me of finally achieving the dreaded HT-12 for T-55A. The stroke of luck I had to finally complete this mission (without honours) was enormous:

- I reached 2k damage by 12 (twelve) points above threshold,

- I reached 3x damage blocked by 10 (ten) points above threshold,

- 83% of damage blocked (4920) was from "special" ammo,

- 61% of damage blocked (3600) was from "special" ammo tier 10s,

- 34% of damage blocked (2100) was from JP E100 shooting HEAT (yikes),

 

The irony is that I went down as soon as JP E100 started shooting AP.

 

The HT-12 T55-A was the mission that I spent the most time on. I checked when I unlocked the T28 HTC and it was on October 2017, or 9k battles ago. In the meantime I have managed to unlock Maus, WZ-111-5A, half of 113, 80% of E-100, and fully equipped Conqueror.

 

I'm writing this post not complain but to share my joy, and also to cheer up the other chaps out there, stuck on this mission. If you lack the skill (as I do) to be able to complete this mission faster than after 9k battles or so, maybe today is the day!

I refuse to believe this as "everyone" knows that gold ammo is P2W auto-pen.

 

Also, gratz on completion, that's a tricky one to do.

Nice.  I did HT14 completely by accident the other day, hoping the Maus can do this one for me.

Maus was rather a disappointment for me, although I could see it coming after reading the forums. I played several battles in it and managed to get 6 or 7k damage blocked but fell short. Also, playing this tank is hardly enjoyable.

Nice one and congrats. I feel your pain I really do. Ive been stuck on medium mission for t55a for about the same length of time as I committed orders to it to skip it and now I have to complete with honours but the stars seem to never align for me.

Congratulations. Having been stuck on SPG-15 for months myself, and LT-15 before that, I can fully relate to the joy of completing one of these. I eventually gave up on the SPG one and used 4 orders to complete it (so I finally got the tank) and I can tell you it's worth it, it's a lovely little thing to drive around.

I'm getting crazy trying to do Union8 for Obj. 279e. You have to bounce 40 shots within 5 games with russian tanks. It's not possible. Whatever tank I try. Spend already about 300 games with the closest to finishing it was 39!!! shots So I was short one shot. No matter what you do people either pen you, ignore you or shoot HE.

 

This stupid mission needs overworking. After they've nerfed the Obj. 268v4 armor every tier 8 pens your lfp or cupola and even some strange frontal plate pens... First mission I stopped trying and hoping for WG to change it in the upcoming patches...

 

GL to you all

That is why I haven't committed any orders yet. I will definitely need them later, so I'm trying to complete with or without honours. Completing HT-12 got T-55A with honours is outside of my reach, unless I get lucky not 1 in 5k but like in 50k battles.

gratz! I am stuck on that one myself. Sorry, didnt watch the replay, but what tank did you use to complete it? I have come close several times in the VK100.01P...

I used the Conqueror. It may be the only tank of those that I played to withstand the "special" ammo rain, due to spaced armor on the turret.

Grats OP, i'm surprised you didn't do it with the Maus.

 

Did it accidentally on Mines in VK 100.01 P when i was grinding Maus last month.

I say 'accidentally' because i am not familiar with the mission, had to look it up ... and i am half through T28 HTC atm.

 

You can totally do it undutchable80 !

Ah, ok. I have that one unlocked and will probably buy it when / if higher tier tanks will be discounted this weekend. Thx!

Thanks mate! Funnily enough, I did complete it already in the VK100.01P last month, but that was for the Bloc 14 (Block twice more damage than the hitpoints of your vehicle). Smashed one out of the park with 5900 dmg blocked, but I was still on a different T-55A HT mission at the time. Now that I am on HT-12 I cant seem to even break 4k but we will keep plugging away at it!

Now compare that to E100 or JgPz E100. #Balanced. You could try to bait with O257's side against tier 7s and 8s?

 

On-topic: Well done.
