I'm looking for the best tank to achieve 12000 of combined bounced,taken and given damage AND doing 25% of my team's damage ?

 

In which tank did you do this mission?

Something German at Tier X.

Needed, I believe, 5000 blocking for a mission one time so broke out my trusty Pz.Kpfw VII - waited for the appropriate map, parked the bus in an obvious spot and within 2 mins I had accrued just over 11000 blocking.

Mission accomplished.:)

I think I did that mission a few times with my E100 already (plenty of crap battles also), IS-7 would be my second choice I think.

I did that "for the T-55A" in the E100 back in the day on the old Highway map. But this was pre 268 4, EBR, 705A and even pre Progetto 65 etc. So a few metas ago.

HT-15 in T-55A campaign

 

I did the first part, but for excellent completion I still need the 25% of my team's damage part.

So I need something with good aiming and reasonably high DPM... or a very crap team. or both

would the Polish 60TP be any good?

If it's combined I would have assumed it wouldn't matter how it was done?

(Forgive me if I'm being thick).

 

Not a clue about the Polish tanks - I gave up on them.

well, the mission says 12.000 damage done, taken and bounced  + 25% of the team's damage + win the battle

quite difficult.

but I need these orders back.

 

I found the polish tanks to be good, I'm currently grinding the 50TP, 60TP is next up...

That actually makes sense.

Give it a bash in the Polish tanks, see how it goes.

I plan to do it in st-1 or 257. For instance I did it here. But that was the bouncing mission and I was dumb enough to die because I didn't pay attention to conditions.

 

http://wotreplays.eu...nowlywhite-st-i

 

I'm pretty sure I did it at least one more time in st1, if not 2(but again, wasn't done with the other missions). 257 probably would work too as it requires same conditions - top tier, bad teams, etc.

 

Though I think st1 is better. Lower tiers will have easier time flanking you and then they usually start bouncing with enthusiasm. If they can't flank they might start spamming he and crap like that... Ok, the setter in the replay started to shoot he at a point for 20 dmg. Mind you, I managed to bounce 9 shots from a british light(and we all know they're famous for their dpm). The poor guy bounced me for almost 2 mins while I showed him an angled glorious soviet *ss; unfortunately someone killed him.

 

p.s - the whole battle had nothing epic in it. I just drove through north with the tiger 2, farmed some bottom tiers, reached their base, they came to defend, farmed some more. At the end I spot a wild full hp mauchen smack in the middle of the map(needed to bounce 1 or 2 more shots)...

Snowlywhite is on to something. The 12K combined thing is doable in about any armored TX tank. The 25% damage of team less so. 25% of the team damage is an enhanced High Caliber award (that one's for 20%) and that's hard to get at TX

So my best guess would be one of the T9 armored heavies. Harder to get 12K in but as you're chasing for the 25% damage, it should still work. Less need to bounce in favour of more damage. A good benchmark to go for would be the Steel Wall / High Caliber combo. Some T8 tanks can do it too but that needs most stuff to be in your favour.

Note: because of the damage requirement, it can be harder in very slow tanks.

 

PS: I finished HT-15 with the KV-4, but considering I'm a bit biased towards playing it I admit it is not the easiest tank to do it with. ST-I feels like a good tank to give it a go tho. Good gun, good turret armor & acceptable mobility (it is an armored hulldown tank imo which helps alot with the current maps to get HT-15). 

Edit: as mentioned above, as you're grinding the Polish line I'd say give it a go with them. From what I recall they're pretty nice in hulldown locations & carry a powerful gun & aren't too slow either.

My plan was to check if i would complete HT-15-4 with honors in the 279 after every good battle.

I lost count after 5. :trollface:

T9 also has a game design advantage.

 

Most t7s are t6 gun + more hp. A well armoured t9 will bounce t6 gun gold all day long. Without angling or anything.

I've actually mainly been using the IS-4 for heavy tank mission. Although it's a terrible tank, the side armor is still very good and blocking damage actually goes surprisingly fast. Anyways, any proper heavy tank with actual armor and a decent gun will help with the mission.

Did it in the E75 but that was before all the HE spam that makes these sort of missions a bit more tricky nowadays.

thanks, I'll try with ST-I and 50TP, these were also my favorites for the mission. I tried Maus, but it seems impossible to rack up enough damage in tier 10 with it.

 

I almost got it in the ST-I on Ruinberg map, but my team lost (again) :-(

yes, the vkb is also a tank I'm looking at for the #2 campaign missions.

 

I don't play german/jap tanks; I expect to be able to do most of them in t-55a/skorp, but for bouncing/ht combined ones I'm also eyeing the vkb

Maus, E 100 (maybe, requires some luck), VK 45.02 B, IS-4 (if you're a masochist).
