so this tank has finally hit the live servers and it's on sales. :)

looks like they changed the base penetration for both standard and gold penetration! And is it only me? or they changed the armour thickness as well?

Nothing changed in the armor layout since the first iteration of the supertest.

Soon, will be more premium tanks than tech-tree tanks.

Everything was looking good until I looked at the lower plate, which is pretty weak, so it won't be able to do what the tier 9 Torty does which is work corners hiding its cupola, its actually more like a tier 8 Badger, only works hull down. 

 

DPM is pretty insane for a tier 8 though, I think with improved equipment and the directive you could hit over 4k and 5s reload, which at tier 8 for 330 alpha is pretty good. 

 

Stats on that stat card seem different than tanks.gg, like traverse angles there are listed as 23/23, but its 20/20 on tanks.gg and accuracy seems worse.

and yes, it's the T8's Badger, so the insane DPM is not something new! :P

but the accuracy and the shell velocity are a bit interesting!

with usual equipments so imagine about bond equipments!

Eugh yeh just noticed the shell velocity, it's bad on both rounds, even the APCR doesn't get over 1k m/s

Gun traverse rate is 23°/second, gun traverse angles (how much can the gun move to each side) is ± 20°. :)

 

These stat cards show the nominal stats without a crew. To convert to performance stats you need to either divide or multiply by 1.043 factor. So the accuracy is 0.33 as tanks.gg shows.

Ah misread that then, thought that might be the case with accuracy, but wondered if anything else changed, but seems tanks.gg is correct.

Does WoT really need yet another bush camping TD???

The TS5 is king of the TDs IMO, or the WZ120

https://tanks.gg/com...turtle-i?t=ts-5

 

Got good DPM but pen is lacking so T10s in  particular will laff at ya

 

What we need is proper player tonks like this upgraded Lowe

Get the game flow moving with decent machines

what is the point of that great rof when even gold pen is low. Vs t10 it will be pointless. Even vs t8 it will situational bc of horrible mobility. It looks like balanced tank and in nowadays wot it means it isnt worth real money.

You can pimp it up to around 3800DPM with food

 

10 degrees of gun depression is pretty awesome

another 5KPH would have made a big difference, only does 20

 

If you're a "TD dude" it's deffo worth a look

 

...but that pen...

It's a T8 TD, it's not supposed to stop T10s... 

It's main job is to train crew and make credits!

And I disagree with you, 223 mm is enough for T8 MM. 

And as you know, T8s has the beat MM, they meet T8s 60-70% of the battles, so it isn't a real problem!

Pen is alright, it's pretty much on par with what the Torty is on tier 9, which basically has the same pen as most of the heavies.

I imagine thats one sale they can count on. Especially as he now has a commander of the same name.
