if you cant pen it with e3 apcr i start wondering if you actually shot the hull and not a building next to it. e3 apcr should go through the hull easely

Don't get me wrong, it's really strong for its tier. A bit too strong in some aspects.

 

But like most Russians like it, it works best at one angle. As the cupola is not something most can reliably hit at most ranges. The only chance head on most guns have is if you get him to go to angle his tank a bit. Then most have a better chance instantly if they aim behind the lamp on the right side, or above the steel cable on the left. Most tier X guns with normal ammo should get 70% chance or more then. Head on? Low front hull center above the gap between the 2 sets of tracks can work for most tier X guns depending on ammo. My Grille 15 usually have about 50% then with AP. Better than nothing.

 

Tho your E3 with APCR vs my Grille with HEAT should have a 80% chance head on more or less regardless. So where did you aim?

Its a balanced Russian reward tank

 

Anyone who claims otherwise is a western capitalist lackey

Maybe you had a bad case of RNG, and your shots didn't hit the hull head on? According to tanks.gg, E3 should pen the obj279 pretty reliably with gold.

Literally anywhere you shoot in the center mass you are gonna pen. You most likely shot at the tracks

OP had not been informed that aiming was necessary when shooting APCR in an E3

i didnt shoot the tracks

 

i shoot upper plate

 

that green is if you have few upper angle on him

 

but E3 is short so it looks slightly different

 

anyway this is a stupid tank

 

they erased Type 4 and 5 from the game but this thing still exists. probably they keep it cause there are few but that doesnt negate the fact that 279 is a stupid tank that doesnt belong in the game

Shoot AP. It goes through like butter. Trust me, I know from the receiving end. If you cant pen the 279e with the E3, it is a classic case gitgud or whatever the cool kids say these days. The only thing this tank is really good at is trolling T8 tanks. Everything else stands a more than fair chance, although I have seen people panic for absolutely no reason.

the problem is that most Obj279 I see in battle come with their almost obligatory 3000 WN8 and 3 gunmark player who camps the good corners, hides his tank's weakspots and bounces JPE100 all day long.

I'm glad for XVM. when I see players like this, I just GTFO of dodge and go try to kill other enemies, hoping some of the noobs will get some lucky hits with HE on him.

I stopped complaining about 279 after I discovered that its turret is applying for position in Soviet space program. And with your E3 setup 279 is actually easy target.
