  1. 440 damage with the same fire rate like KV-1S and better penetration and 510 damage with gold ammo and the same penetration like KV-1S? WTF? It will be very overpowered tank. 35 km/h and 870 HP, good armor?

    2. The Armour of the DickerMax is even more meeeeeeeeeeeeeh. Poor DM will be just a shadow next to her...
      BTW, you are doing an amazing job Silent! Keep up the good work! :)

  2. Kv1s---390 dmg/175 pen
    Su100(better 122 than 100 with that gun...)---390 dmg/175 pen
    Old t34-85 @200 dmg, forgot it's pen
    S-51, tier 6 arty which can oneshot tier 8 tdes.
    Now this beast...why only soviets got such huge dmg and unrealistic guns for their tier just becase 'they got armor/mobility problems'?
    I dont remember that kv1s had 122 mm gun, the bigest one had 85mm.I dont remember su-100 ever had 122mm gun, the su mpunted with 122mm gun was called su-122.And never heard about this su100y...cmon
    Sorry for kidish enraged complainings but this bs is just too much for me.
    Maybe this tank has no armour, but it is really needed when it'll meet t4-7 tanks since it's a premium tank?440 average dmg...thats the t28/t34 american t8 tanks average dmg.....

    1. Unfortunately most of the guns on such "little" tanks are historical. The RL SU-100Y (prototype) is located in Kubinka. Google and wikipedia will give you some answers as well.

      And yes, the gun is amazing, but the rest?
      This thing is never ever going to have good camo-values + bad armor. And the horizontal arc-angles will be rather low.

      It´s not going to be a "I-win-Tank" for 500eff-bobs.

    2. It's going to be an arty magnet too. Big gun, but everything else will be really bad. And yes, the vehicle is historical, the prototype actually even fought during the defense of Moscow.

    3. I know it wont have a good camo factor, it wont have good mobility and neither armor but in t6 battles does it matter?
      Camp behind the lines with a bit of cover from arty...you'll cripple every tank you see on your sight with that gun...Average hp of t6 tanks is around 700 hp.440 dmg every 15 secsw/o gun rammer is too much.Not talking about t5 which will be oneshoted...

    4. I do not care about the 250-300 eff bots, who actually suffer with the KV-1S too... But imagaine what the 65%+ WR players will do with this... ...This monster.

    5. It does matter. Don't forget you don't know the MM weight and limits of this vehicle. It could be constantly dropped into T7-T8 battles and trust me, against even T7elite tanks it won't be able to do anything. Look at the engine: 870hp for 60 tons is not that much. It will move like a Tiger, but with 60mm armor (under no serious angle) - that's paper on tier 6. It's huge, it'll get demasked with first shot and then it'll attract every enemy on the battlefied.

    6. Yup, this monster is going to be difficult to handle.
      I never argued with this.

      But I would point out too that a proper combo of several layers of bushes (with the 15 meters rule taken into consideration) will mask her properly. If this SU-100Y gets the proper assistance from other tanks, then the 130 mm gun affect the game brutally.

      Anyway, I hope, that my worries have no basis :)

    7. Well, like all premium soviet tanks, they cant do to much shit to higher tiers (eg : is6-low pen, kv5 low pen & huge weakspot, su122-44-low pen& armor).But i'm talking about low tier battles...it'll be in t4-6 battles like the t18 american td in t1-2 battles and like the derp hetzer in t3-5 battles.Ruining others gameplay...

  3. Oh god WG is experimenting with Premium ammo that does more damage then regular shells.

    We'r doomed, doomed i tell you.

    1. That's nothing new, HESH works like that as well.

      Delete
    2. Well HESH does work quite differently 1) The penetration difference for the tier its used in is quite considerable, yes aiming for weakspots is needed, but first you have to load up HESH then you have to hit the weakspot and the tank may move making it harder to hit weakspot and increasing the chances of hitting undesirable spots mentioned in part 2 2) You mustn't hit any spaced armor or tracks as this will result in weak splash damage.

      But thats going into details (thats how I do). Far better examples are Konisch gun for VK3601H 65/165 Average damage and American 76mm guns 115/110/185 Average damage

  4. So, a straight upgrade from Dicker Max? This shit is OP as hell for its tier.

    1. So... losing all your camo, DPM, view range and gun depression is a straight upgrade?

  5. As a At-15a owner I feel disgusted by WG's decision to implement this TD. It is better TD than the British for a lower price. Everybody knows that some premium tanks are underpreforming in the battlefield still they don't fix them, they just give us another TD to buy.
    I think this was the last time I buy a premium tank.

    1. Its a huge TD with no armor man... its gonna be a JPE100 of tier6 therefore bad

      Delete
    2. At is the same, huge, slow, and above 7 everything can pen it, even tier 7 tanks can sometimes pen it, and KV-2 or arty can 2 shot it.

  6. OH GOD! My poor little Dickermax :/
