Commanders,

 

Four new low tier vehicles are on their way to the Supertest:

 

M4A2-T-34_eng.jpg

The M4A2 T-34 is a Tier V Soviet medium tank.

It is equipped with a powerful 85 mm gun that causes 160 damage per shot. Its standard AP shell penetrates 150 mm on average, while the average penetration of its special APCR shell is 196 mm. The gun has an accuracy of 0.38, aiming time of 2.7 s, and reload time of 6 s, making this tank's role clear: dealing damage.
The vehicle's durability is 630 HP. The thickness of the frontal armor plate reaches up to 63.5 mm and the frontal projection of the turret up to 52 mm. Its engine power is 420 h.p. and has a top speed of 52 km/h. The view range is 350 m.

 

 

Matilda LVT_EN.jpg

The Matilda LVT is a Tier IV British medium tank.

The vehicle also has a decent 75 mm gun. Its standard AP shell penetrates 91 mm on average, while the average penetration of its special APCR shell is 144 mm. It has a damage per shot of 110 HP, an accuracy of 0.43, and an aiming time of 1.7 s. Its engine power is 190 h.p., has a power-to-weight ratio of 8 h.p./t, and can reach a top speed of 24 km/h. Considering its sub-par mobility but excellent gun, this tank is best played at long range where it can realize its firing potential.

 

 

Pz.Kpfw.M15_EN.jpg

The Pz.Kpfw. M15 is a Tier III German light tank.

It is equipped with a 37 mm gun. Its damage per shot is 40 HP, and it can penetrate armor up to 42 mm with a standard AP shell and up to 74 mm with a special APCR shell. The gun has an accuracy of 0.41, a loading time of 2.3 s, and an aiming time of 1.7 s. The engine power is 250 h.p., with a power-to-weight ratio of 16 h.p./t, and it can reach a top speed of 40 km/h.

 

 

PzKpfw35R_eng.jpg

The Pz.Kpfw. 35 R is a Tier II German light tank.

Its damage per shot is 55 HP, and it can penetrate armor up to 50 mm with a standard AP shell and up to 78 mm with a special AP shell. The gun has an accuracy of 0.48, a loading time of 2.8 s, and an aiming time of 2.8 s. The engine power is 82 h.p., with a power-to-weight ratio of 7.7 h.p./t, and can reach a top speed of 23 km/h.

 

 

Let us know what do you think about those new additions in the comments below.

Keep in mind that stats are not finale and may change on the supertest.

Roll out!

Sounds more like a T6 than a T5 medium. Most T5 TDs do not have that level of penetration. And visually/armorwise just another Frankenstein tank with existing turret and hull from different tanks mixed together willy-nilly.

"Excellent" gun with 0.43 dispersion that is "best played at long range" ? Basically a Matilda with more alpha, but inferior in all other aspects.

Looks ok, maybe a little slow.

Very slow, no turret armor, horrible gun handling. A bit too many downsides for the alpha, pen and DPM benefits. But then, T1-3 are pure chaos anyway.

That m4 needs a nerf, or be uptiered.160 damage with 150 pen is too much for a t5 at that fire rate. Isn't the m10 RBFM enough with outdoing the tech tree version?

 

Also, could we stop with these russian magic hammerspace tanks? First those pancakes with way too much gun depression that should result in the gun sticking out of the roof, now a small t34 turret with the 85mm gun, when the entire point of the T34-85 was that the bigger gun would not fit into the already waaaaay too small turret?

Whats the point of adding a text under the cards with the information thats in the cards? Why not add a bit of their history? Oh thats right, the history would be "WG employee wipes his [edited], looks at the toilet paper and finds new tank blueprint" that would be kinda embarrassing.

I was hoping i would come back to WoT eventually, but you continue to add models with no consistency in their stats, there is no logic to the penetration values and damage, or they are simply copy paste of similar guns, a T-34 with a 76mm gun doing 160 damage as if it was a 85mm... a Matilda with what seems to be an american turret and gun, likely the 3inch M7, but with copy paste stats from the OQF MkV 75mm that looks nothing like it. The Tier 3 has copy paste stats from one of the most unenjoyable guns in the game found on the Pz. T 15, since it pens about the same as most tier 1 tanks, which would be ok if it had proper acc, but it doesnt, and the tier 2 has clearly a russian turret with a russian 45mm 20k, but with copy paste stats from the only german 45mm gun found on the MKA.   BTW "Mathilda" lol

 

I tried recently this game called Iron Conflict, its a copy paste of WoT but strategy, i unninstalled when i saw the Pershing had as main gun a 76mm.

Why does the T3 have less pen than the T2 though?

 

Guess it'll be the next gift tank.

Well, seems like that 35R thing was also real...

 

So if anyone can find some historical sources on the M4A2/T-34 (Model 1942) and the Matilda LVT, that'd be awesome.

Please, this is what all German tank players want

 

Are these frankentanks going to be for an upcoming event? (New chapter of Mirny 13 anyone?) Two of these are actually real, what about the other two, can you guys from WG post some history about them? Sadly I couldn't find anything. Why not add the Churchill NA 75 instead of this Matilda something? There is more information about it and it's really similar.

It isn't my creation, but you can still do it if you overwrite the turret/hull model of the Leopard/Maus with each other in the game files. The screenshot is from an old tank viewer software.

Seems weird. The LVT in the name may stand for the Landing Vehicle Tracked,of which some were outfitted with M3 Stuart turrets with a 37 mm cannon, and some were outfitted with M8A1 turrets with the short-barrelled 75mm howitzer, but this gun looks like a regular 75mm M3 tank gun (and so does the damage, and the standard pen, but not the premium pen), but those were not fitted to the LVT as far as I can see with my very brief glancing. And while plenty of LVTs were used in NW Europe by the British and Canadians in 1944-45, they did not use Matildas here. Australia kept using Matildas until the end of the war, though, and maybe the British in Burma as well, so if anything it would have been a field modification done in those theatres of the war. But still... :popcorn:
