A new tank destroyer is available in World of Tanks, combining two popular tanks into one!

Seems like a decent one, a link between the Hellcat and Jackson. Beats both on turret traverse, which is nice.

Actually looks like a pretty well-balanced tank: https://tanks.gg/com...hellcat~jackson

 

Dont think I will pick one up though; since TDs are my worst class (and I have the TS-5 and T28 HTC already).

first premium in a long while thats actually tempting. At least at 12 quid i could say that if I didn't play it too much at least i'm not seriously out of pocket

 

Wonder why it's got 22mm less penetration on premium shells compared to m36 and m18 tho? all have same gun, same shell type/name/velocity, just lower pen........

 

And the base shell actually costs more???? it's only 5 credits but still

Very tempting would buy the bundle if my 20% coupon worked since it doesn't Ill buy the basic.

Wouldn't mind paying the extra for the Fedralist colour scheme if it were removable assuming I hated it or wanted to use it on other US tanks.

I am really hoping Tanks GG is accurate about this tank if it is then it has a very effective gun mantle.

76mm basic but 188 effective

It lacks hp/t, otherwise it could've been a Tier 6 version of the T67. Also, shame on those dispersion values but hey at least they're not Hellcat ones. :trollface:

Did anyone else noticed the changes at the tanks presentation web pages?

Nice job developers.

 

BTW: The tank looks good ... but, I'll wait for a while to see it in battle.

 

:rolleyes:

Another tank so loosely based on reality that it did not exist. At all.

So how is the T78

 

I went out and took rounds in the tank. Now to be precise 19 Games :playing:

I can say that this tank is a very fun tank to play. I do think however in capable hands it can be a monster, but then on the other hand. It does the same thing as a Hellcat just a tad worse here but a tad better there. Its a well tradeoff. I recently played the Jackson and I have to say, I gladly take the T78 over the Jackson at any time even though the T78 has worse DPM, Accuracy and Aimtime. The T78 just has this much better Mobility which allows it to get around the Battlefield quickly and quite comfortably. I put down a little Review of this little tank. There I go a bit more in detail about the differences of the T78 compared with Hellcat and Jackson as well as a Gameplay in a T7 game definitly showing off the strengths and weaknesses of the vehicle.

 

If you wish not to listen to me, that is no problem! I wrote down a little TL:DW with the pros and cons of the vehicle in my eyes:

 

Cheers

Only thing I am wondering is: It has an M24 hull, why is the mobility not M24 levels in terms of ground resistance values and speed?

 

Otherwise looks like a nice little vehicle.

First guess, balancing, second guess. Turret is heavier then the M24 turret making ground resistance values worse

Sure. Why not.

 

Let's add more Premium vehicles because this is what this game is all about.

 

Forget all the issues and just "push" players to buy more Premium stuff...

 

At least it's not another "well balanced" rusky Obj XXX...

Bought it. Looks like a lot of fun. I've 3-marked the Hellcat and the Jackson, so this must be fun too.

[....]

 

Mate, we cannot forget ONE BASIC issue ...

... If they do not produce new premium tanks, they will have NO incomes ...

... and if they will have no incomes, the game will die/close ...

 

So, PLZ, stop the complains about this issue every time a new premium tank appears (about 15-20 times per year).

 

And ... at the end of all, no one forces you to buy anything, you can be a free player for as long as you want ...

... for as long as some other players pay real money to buy the NEW premium tanks (or anything else).

 

:B

So far, I reckon it's MORE fun....

...just don't get shot, especially by an O-I. In the meantime, I'll enjoy the stats I've got....I doubt they'll stay like that for long ;)
