I need to complete these missions for Russian and German/Japanese tanks.

Block twice the hitpoints.

I've been having those missions for ages and can't complete them, so what are the most suited tanks to complete those missions fast?

The lower the tier the better since with the gold spam it isn't exactly easy to do at tier X.

 

I have the IS-7/705A/IS-4/430U/140 lines, as well as Type5 and E100.

 

Cheers

Don't have the Maus line :(

 

KV-4 might be interesting, I remember I loved its gun.

VK.100.01P is easy enough to block 2-3x own HP and although I don't like it generally it hasn't got a bad gun either.

 

SU-100M1, T-34-85M, IS-3 are all tanks I have done blocking with in the right situation (MM etc.)

Tank is largely down to personal choice &/or what you have available in the garage.

I finished most of mine in the PzKpfw VII at tier x, although any heavily armoured tank should do the job - the IS line, as others have mentioned, should do quite nicely.

 

The hardest part comes in game and relies heavily on the map you are given - big open maps being preferred.

What one must do is 1: Park you tonk in an obvious, open spot.

                                  2: Fire off a few rounds to draw attention to yourself.

                                  3: Remain absolutely still (this is the difficult part as it goes against ones instinct for self preservation).

                                  4: Wait for the damage to come rolling in.

 

I've don the quite successfully in VK 100P & PzKpfw VII (record came in the Pz amassing a total of 14032 damage blocked;))

You'll have trouble blocking any damage if a smart player is shooting at you. They won't shoot at you if they can't penetrate you or don't have a clear shot at the weak part of your armor.

 

That's the biggest problem with blocking missions. You literally have to hope you run into a stupid player and then just hold him against a wall or something and let him keep shooting you. Otherwise you'll struggle.

 

Also, if you pick the most obvious tank with the thickest armor, you will automatically get spammed to death by gold ammo and artillery. So your best bet is to pick something inbetween. I've had better blocking results in the ST-I than the 705A...

 

The Maus is an exception because it's the only tank in the game which can still bounce gold ammo when angled properly and absorb small-calibre artillery fire.

 

If you try it with the Type 5, prepare for some zero damage blocked matches...

 

They're just stupid missions you need a lot of luck for...barely any skill involved apart from angling.

I went O-I and KV-4, we'll see.

 

And thanks for advising either the Maus or Kpfwg VII lines, but I don't have those lines, so, yeah :)

 

Edit: completed with KV-4 after 3 tries. And got second mark on top of it :medal:

Pretend you're an idiot that can't aim and just track them constantly. If they can't move and they're not getting hurt they'll likely fire at you because they've nothing better to do and you can bounce it. The only enemies you actively want to kill are the ones that are causing you damage.

No, you don't need that much luck. Sure, like aiming, armour usage is a gambling game, but you mostly need the skill of angling in such a way enemy have chance to pen you, but those chance are low enough they will likely bounce. 

 

OP, usually boxy tank are the best for those mission. KV-4 and VK100 as have been said, but also IS-M and the German tier 9 are good too. E75 was the tank I did blocking mission for the block in Excalibur campaign, as an example. 

With a good matchup, you can use T-150 too.

O-I seems to work fine too, just been close to achieve it, M44 stat padders ruined it, of course, it's a plague at tier VI, everybody and his mother are playing that PoS.

The luck he talks about is to have stupid enemies that keep shooting you while its impossible to pen.

If i see a sidescraping heavy i just leave him be and shoot something else. But you need those brainlets that keep shooting you even at auto ricochet angles.

If you can do the mission at lower levels get a well armored tank and drive in front of the rapid fire pew pew guns that abound.

Oh, I see. Those special players are indeed rare. But I usually see them as a bonus. :)

Block twice the hitpoints.

 

O-I and SU-100M1

 

With the O-I try to get spotted early so you get sot from long range, it will even bounce 122mm guns which will soon rack up the points needed.  If someone decides to press 2 or 3, or arty starts picking on you then hide.

 

The SU can be played up front, it bounces a remarkable amount of the guns it meets. Find a nice sidescraping spot or just bully lower tiers.
