Hey, tankers!

Three Tier VIII vehicles are about to enter the Supertest. Let’s take a glimpse at what each of them are like before they hit the proving ground.

TL-1 LPC

Up first is the TL-1 LPC, the American Tier VIII medium.

Let’s start with the strengths. The mobility—it’s pretty good: a power-to-weight ratio of 18 hp per ton allows for a top speed of 50 km/h. Next, the front armor—it’s good, too, with the plates’ thickness reaching up to 177 mm for the turret and up to 88 for the hull. Plus, the plates are sloped at an impressive angle. As for the other characteristics: the cupola is rather small; the gun’s depression angle is 9 degrees; the hit points amount to 1,400.

Another strength of this vehicle is its 90-mm gun, with an aiming time of 2.1 seconds, dispersion of 0.35 m at 100 m, and a rate of fire of 7.14 rounds per minute. The alpha has been increased to 280 points which is outstanding for its caliber and allows to leave cover less often. The armor penetration is 208 mm for a standard armor-piercing round and 280 mm for a special HEAT round.

In battle, the TL-1 LPC performs just as a medium should: fire support and flanking. However, the decent armor and hit points allow for more daring actions. While the gun, that is nothing short of excellent for a medium, performs effectively in any given situation, be it from its alpha or shooting at a vulnerable enemy.

And what are the weak sides, you might ask? Well, nothing is perfect in this world, and this tank is no exception. But they aren’t that emphatic to be worth mentioning.

Okay, so after 2 years of waiting for something to be done to the T95E2, remodels and threads, this is what happens.

What is this vehicle? It looks like a T95E8 without the AVDS engine.

Smaller cupola, better penetration, more engine power, faster hull traverse.

 

This thing fixes all the issues of the T95E2, is it a replacement?

And why is the model so plain?

350 more dpm than the m48a2, 20 more view range, more pen on both shells, better ability to trade with higher alpha, more agility, 10km/h faster forward, 5km/h faster backwards 5more hp/ton, WAY more accurate

 

the m48a2 has slightly better armour (negated by a massive cupola) and a bulldozer..........

 

hmmm these 2 are so far apart it's unreal

This med is looking pretty awesome, judging by the stats. It'll be a nice jack of all trades, if it stays this way...

I can only hope that WG not changing this to a T95E1 or something like the Chieftain/T95 tier 8 CW tank means that they have plans for a tree with T95 variants.

According to the dailybounce.net, this tank and the M48 Ram panzer, most likely will be available for bonds only...
