I think the 703 11 should not be a tier 8 as no tier 8 can pen it my renegade can not pen it unless using gold ammo.

Any thoughts on this?

Learn to aim? 703 is a very situational tank, on some maps it's broken on others it's a pinata. I sold the one I had.

Hmm, I've been penning them quite happily. Can confirm others seem to have no major issues penning mine either when I screw up. I think it might be an "aim better issue".

 

Any thoughts on this?

Aim at the right spots. Renegade 226pen AP are enought to pen the LFP. Can also punch trough the turret cheeks that are 220mm. With APCR you can pen the gun mantlet between the guns. Both AP and APCR can overmatch the hull roof in front of the turret. Had no problem dealing with 703 II with KV-4 and other tier 8 HTs while facing it with tier 9 is easy. In example with ST-1 gun all the frontal hull had a green marker!

Defender is miles stronger in terms of armour effectiveness.

I shot it in side of hull 3 times it bounced it was square on to me or has my tank got rubber shells.

The aim indicator showed penetration.

This is a regular problem with this tank.

Another game it pens every thing including 703 11

sorry but if you can't pen it with standerd ammo in another Tier8 ... its not the tanks fault.

the armour on that 703 is not that gr8 (its not terrible either i'll give you that) and it certainly has weaker area's

maybe go look for those b4 crying on the forums next time

It has the same problem as Defender, IS-7, Obj 257 and 907. The side armor is very trollish and can bounce even if the pen marker says green. They have boat like shape. It is a feature on Soviet tanks.

If you struggle with a tank. Look up the armor profile on it so you know where to aim. Sure the slopes on it can troll. Even more so if he comes uphill when you fire. The lower plate should be no issue for your gun to name one if you can hit it. And if you face to much angle, just back off and force him to change it. No point going into his fire line if he has more effective armor.

Don't look at your pen marker but learn the actual weak spots.

Yep, pen marker is a guide, not a guarantee.

^ Is solid advice considering the OP's current skill level.

I'd also suggest him to learn the overmatch mechanics, spotting mechanics, and stop playing with 50% crews in hightier tanks.

I played some games with my "liberte" from the referral program in the last days.I almost pen 703s every time in the lower plate or when they try to sidescrape with 232 pen gun.The salvo is scary feauture but i think people overuse it and mess their aim.

 

Is 703 OP? yes.  Is it broken? Depends on the player,map,being top tier,2x 3x in platoon etc :trollface:

The Somua is a bit like that

The tank itself is pretty crap except the armour at med/long range but the 5 clip 300 Alpha a pop gun is pretty ridiculous, and you get a lot of ammo to play with

You can pop up right in front of an e75 and smash 85% of his HP off in a oner

 

I got it back a couple of weeks ago and I don't think I've been in a game that's had less than 100% T8s

It's T9 and 10 matchups all the time but for me that's perfect, I hate being top tier
