With this mission I need to block 3 times the tanks HP, plus do 2k damage. What's the opion of the type of tank for this mission.


I've tried a Teir VI Sherman Jumbo hoping that blocking part would be easier although the damage part is tougher. 

I've tried a Teir IX VK45-02-B thinking the blocking would be harder but the damage easier.


I've come very close in the last couple of days with the VK. Is that the approach to continue or does anyone have other teir and tank choices for this mission.


The other option is to skip it with a campaign order. I have 12 and never used any yet.

Should be possible by getting hull down in a T29 and having a good game.

I did it with Maus. If you get tier 8 MM you can easily block 9k dmg.

I would say try T 150, good hull side, and good alpha, 300 average, it's 7 shots.

Also the turret can bounce if you wiggle.

did those bunch missions with either ST-1 or VK4502B, remember i used both for it, just unsure which one for what tank set. both able to block quite bunch dmg, facing t7 and a not too high hp pool which should allow it in not too many attempts. sidescrape/hulldown and shave some hp down of the enemy but not killing them, just to stop them advancing

Block missions are probably some of the hardest out there now due to the HE spam. The majority of my directives are used on these missions. If you want some advice I would make sure you have directives from all other lines. Use a directive on this mission . Make sure you have 8 directives left for the HT mission 15 for the 260. As you can skip the full line if you do, and keep 4 directives for the TD mission 15 for the 260x this will leave you to complete the LT, MT and arty line for the 260 which I think I are the better lines. If you struggle with the arty line use the tier 9 British with the stock gun.

But if you are set on complying this HT mission then I would use the 703 ll if you have it as most now know the denders weak spot

Did mine with the patriot after coming close a few times with the T29 but it was a long time ago now. Not sure how the patriot would fare these days unless you got a tier 6-8 game. Personally i saved all my orders for the 260 so i could get it after doing LT15 and medium 15 but you can always skip it and go back to complete it after although you will have to do it with honours.

But not as tough than completing HT mission with medium tank.

Did it in the Emil-2.
Best tank I've found is strong tanks with weakspots, so people don't just start spamming HE or ignore you. Give them something, just something and they will try to aim for it and RNG does the rest.

VKP the tier 8 one is probably best for this. ST-I is good as well for block missions. t-150 can do it as well.


I had no luck with t-29, people just know it has a strong turret and usually ignore you.


Another one that seems to bounce pretty well is the Caravan, tier 8, had several  games with 3-4 k blocked games.

Tried to do block 2x hp now 6 months for heavy tanks and for campaing (must make it 4 times :( ), I have given up, none has been even close. This requires so much luck that i am going to win in lottery before this mission is done.

I bet you who have done it, have used rigging, cheats or something cause every player is good and even I do not bounce you alltime. 95% of players are more skilled than me and they will not miss shoot not even from other side of map, not even talk about that they would accidentally bounce, no. So this mission is not mission, it is to prevent vanilla players to get all reward tanks.

Got short for two shots blocked the other day in Phase 1 on Mannerheim Line. :sceptic:

The moment blocked started to rack up, I have realized the circumstances become good for doing the mission. I even started shooting the enemy not to pen them, so they don't get scared off. Unfortunately, I got surrounded eventually cause the enemy team played better and I failed (or I kept them alive too long - explained bellow)


Probably should have turned around giving my rear to the enemy that can pen me with high apha (VK tier 8 or 9, can't recall which was it) and trying to block the DPM lower tiers that came from behind hoping to block their shots (a Comet and T43 if I remember correctly) ...


My tips (for the almost ideal scenario I was in - top tier, in the city, hull-down behind gravel, angling, the enemies fought somewhat equal):


1.) if you have an enemy that actually knows what’s he doing your hopes for blocking will not work since they will not shoot you unless they will do damage.

2.) you need to take care not to make them stop shooting you by playing too good, giving them a slight chance and even taking a shot intentionally might help

3.) once you got the dmg done (2k) you don't need to kill them if your position is strong, keep them alive if they are shooting you and your blocking works.

4.) Phase 1 has 340 gold pen, once I got to 2k damage I stopped shooting it cause no enemy would block my shots and would run away (two tanks relocated cause my position was too strong and I was too dangerous) 

5.) if you eventually end up surrounded as I was, try blocking shots that you actually can block and ignore the ones that will probably pen you.


This WILL take me a lot of time to finish.
