Today, a representative of the new Polish branch, the CS-63, will try to make it through the closed Supertest.

Spoiler

 

This Tier X medium has promising characteristics! Let’s take a closer look. 

It’s armed with a 105 mm gun delivering an alpha damage of 390 points. A standard AP round can penetrate 258 mm of enemy armor, while a special APCR can go through 315 mm. In 8.5 seconds, the gun is reloaded enabling you to cause even more damage. As for other parameters, the dispersion and the aiming times are 0.36 at 100 m and 2.3 seconds, respectively. Also, the gun sports decent stabilization values and the vehicle has a view range of 400 m.

 

Armor-wise, it’s quite an ordinary vehicle: its front armor plates are 260 mm thick, but mainly in the gun mask, while other areas have less protection. The hull’s protection is even weaker: 80 mm in the front, however the armor plates are well-angled. Overall, the Pole’s hit points amount to 2000.

 

The best thing about the CS-63 is its mobility. The tank can move in two modes: standard and rapid. Switching between them causes dramatic changes in the vehicle’s dynamic characteristics. In standard mode, the maximum speed is 55 km/h, while when put in rapid mode, the Pole can hit 70 km/h. Also, with rapid mode on, its engine reveals a whopping increase in power: from the standard 740 hp up to 1150 hp. While the dynamics increase in rapid mode, the performance of the gun suffers (the stabilization and the aiming time values decrease significantly) and the vehicle becomes more visible.  

It should be noted that the impact produced by switching between modes is far from set in stone, and both the numerical values ​​and the characteristics might change.

 

To Sum it up, the CS-63 is a classic medium tank. It has a decent gun, mounted on a flexible, yet poorly armored platform. However, putting the Pole in rapid mode allows for a much wider area of control over the map and expands the range of tactical options. In skillful hands this vehicle can perform to the utmost of its abilities.

Well, well, well. This is going to be interesting. If it's not too strong while hulldown, this may be rather balanced. I guess it will play like a more medium-range Leo1.  Or a AMX 30B with a similar turret, much lower DPM but higher pen and mobility

WG you really lost it. More of these fantasy tank tech trees.

 

Why oh why is it so hard to do a Israel tech tree or a Yugoslavian tech tree? Unique tanks & new real tanks . 

 

But no WG goes and makes a fantasy tech tree......

The tier 6 is called B.U.G.I.  and looks like duck tank 2.0! LOL! 
Also the fast mode for the tier 10 sounds interesting.

Cant say i am a fan of the rapid mode.

The game is already way too fast for quite a lot of vehicles. This will only make the game faster once again. We dont need more tanks, that can get into position faster. And this tank will have no drawbacks once it reaches its destination. It will make it even harder for slow heavies to reach their positions without getting farmed. This is already a huge issue on quite a few maps.

The rapid mode is ok if the tank goes 45 km/h normally and like 55 km/h in rapid mode.

Real nice line,serius people this is a good tank line.

Well only to say the negative part of that,is you lose the benefits from crew and modules in rapid mode,hope this will not make it real hard to play in rapid mode.

 

Rapid mode and hydraulic suspension ?

Damn these tanks are ugly. They sound decent gameplay-wise up until tier 9, but the tier 10 gimmick seems a bit unnecessary. I am hoping something more exciting awaits us with the rumoured Czechoslovak branch.

Because the MM is already flooded with clickers and race cars. They have to try all they can to get people to play actual tanks in a tank game.

And you learned nothing? I mean no one is (or should be) expecting historical accuracy from WoT. It may have been the starting point, but as the majority wanted more variation then that is what we got.

 

Why do you think WG should listen to you in particular? Playerbase is 80% Russian and 10% Polish (numbers are completely arbitrary guesses), so makes perfect sense to serve those communities.

 

PS. Tier 6 is totally "The Duck 2.0" as someone said already.
