Commanders!

Today, we have big news: the Turtle Mk. I, a British Tier VIII TD, is about to hit the Supertest.

 

It’s similar to the British assault tank line spearheaded by the FV217 Badger, both in appearance and stats. Its survivability reaches 1,400 HP, and the frontal armour is 228 mm thick, which is quite impressive. However, everything has its price. The Turtle Mk. I suffers from low mobility, like most vehicles of its line. With a top speed of 20 km/h, we recommend choosing your flank during the countdown and sticking to it until the end of the battle.

 

That said, the Turtle Mk. I has an ace up its sleeve: its gun. It reloads in 6.6 s with an average damage per shot of 330 points. So, its DPM reaches 3,000, one of the highest values in the entire game! The accuracy and aiming time are decent as well: 0.34 m at 100 m and 1,7 s, respectively. Dealing with enemy armour won’t be much of an issue: the standard shells (AP) penetrate 217 mm and the special rounds (APCR) 245 mm of effective armour. One more thing: the gun depression angle is -10° and the horizontal gun arc is 20° each to the left and the right.

 

Spoiler

 

Let’s sum up: though the Turtle Mk. I fires much faster than it rolls! Its survivability and firepower help you to destroy the enemy before they know what’s going on. If protected from a rear attack, the Turtle Mk. I can succeed in keeping the enemy at bay and breaking their defences.

Why this power creep again vs tech tree content?

Can't stats, even form premium content, on tier for tier bases once be defined by a border that outlines fixed minimums an a maximums that the balance team is not allowed to cross? All this min/maxing of stats in content has brought the game less then good game balance.

This is RPM is same as obj.907 at this state. This shat is able to permatrack.....

Imagine is3 peak corner and get tracked and its repkit is on realod -  in 20sec from first turtle fart he's RIP.

 

It will face tier VI and its able to kill almost every single tier VI medim in 5.x seconds - first shot-realod-finish. This is wrong...

Can someone from WG tell me what supplements you are taking and what are you giving the 'Superpecialtesters'? If I ever feel the need to be mind-numbed I'd love some of it. 

 

Take it back, way back to whoever first thought up the idea and reassign their job to someone else (they can start writing fiction for a WG novel instead) .. then let's try again.

 

It will dismantle tier 6s and tier 7s and be dismantled by tier 8 (depending),9,10. Catch yourselves on please
