The hull is 100mm flat so it isn't going to bounce very much, even when angled.

 

 

 

Remember that many tier 10 HT have less than 100mm side armour. While frontally this tickness is bad, the boxy shape helps a lot with sidescrape. This gives to the tank te ability to work as support even in some city or corridorish map, acting as a real HT when top tier. I think it may be more versatile than skorpion or SU-130PM.

I was wondering where this one went XD

 

Not really appealing if you ask me.

The only problem is that the hull isn't exactly boxy; the front has an unusual curved shape, so there will always be a big chunk of vulnerable armor exposed when sidescraping. It can surely troll ocassionaly, and the armor can work hulldown at mid-long distances, but the armor is overall very unreliable, even against lower tiers. The tank should never rely on it.

 

That being said, it is still an advantage over the Skorp or SU because those have more or less zero armor.

Yeh, just noticed the round frontal part... 

That may indeed ruin the armour usage of the tank... I agree that not getting penned by HE is a big advantage. :)

So it should be released just in time to make some sales and then get hit by the gold ammo nerfs? Nice.

You still think WG are going to do that and to a premium no less?

It looks like it has a birth deformity.

 

Makes my TS-5 look like a babe.

I haven't seen them say that they have changed their minds for this as a 2019 plan (I may have missed it), but if they do it they have been clear that it will be a global change across the game. I think that gives them the legal possibility to do so, even if premium tank owners don't like it. Time will tell.

Indeed time will tell, i just don't see them making such a move with the current fading player base. Global changes also doesn't mean changing specific parameters of a premium. For example they can change how the camo and spotting system works but a premium light with 25% camo will still have that amount after these changes. Remember how they reacted to the PMM uproar a year ago.

It's Russian, but has better view-range on tier 8 then even the tier 10 TD's have.. strange. At least it has a HUGE profile so camo will be garbage.

 

That DOES make sense. Large profile = easy to spot, so it needs the more view range so it can perform adequately. Considering it's a TD.

 

Though it's easy to say "Soviet Bias" (I would) here I think WG did OK.

Looks like a rather awkward tank to use, but that rapid fire, along with those high pen shells means it will have its place in matches. 

 

Keeps my hopes up that the KV-4 TD might see the light of day sometimes.
