With the servers currently infested with Super Hellcats, the big question on everyone's mind is how to kill them s compendiously as possible.

I find that a Tortoise works well, but Japanese HE shells may also do the job.

I think we all know there's only one real solution to the problem...

Ideal choice. HESH for extra compendiousness.

It's easy comrade, get vodka, a glorious KV-2 and one-shot the capitalist pigs back to the garage with the help of Stalin guiding your glorious shells! Glory to our derps!

As I've mainly played the Super Hellcat of late "yes I kinda like it... kinda". I find his own HE shells works wonders for it. As it rolls for 350 to 400 often, and kills half the crew.

You said it wrong. I think you wanted to write this:
"With the servers currently infested with wheeled vehicles, the big question on everyone's mind is how to kill them s compendiously as possible.;)

Sneak onto them, then slap them with the gun of your heavy.

Any HE will do the trick. Or heavy armour, considering their pen is bad. Playing against then in KV-4 feels an overkill! :)

HE up to a point.  I had some disappointing HE results on them so I took a look at the 3D model and found that the SH mantlet is surprisingly tough and good enough to stop HE having much effect.  

Next time out I shall go to the trouble of aiming.

Mantlet is spaced armour, so even if thin, would counter HE very well. But SHellcat hull is huge and thin so even autoaim will mostly deal full damage. I killed quite a lot with HE with the P43ter.

Aha, hadn't spotted that it was spaced

SHs are notable today not only for how many there are but also for how many are being operated by amazingly bad players, despite their having been in the game all these years

Combined with the SH being (in my opinion) UP, that makes for a tasty feast at times

BTW, what are you supposed to do with these "crate tokens"?
