  5. Also looks like it basically obsoletes the old Tier 5 premium "assault tanks", ie. T14 and Churchill 3.

    Unless it has hilarious weakspots galore might just get one eventually. :3

    Then there's the depression, I love depression ;)

  7. -Epic gun depression
    -Seemingly decent mobility for a heavy (~13.5 hp/t)
    -Virtually immune to most tier Vs with a bit of angling
    -The gun implies it's going to have limited MM

    This might end up being an utter roflpwnmachine (until it runs into the gray horde of gold derpers), but we'll see.

  9. Hm, armor and speed look pretty reasonable. Gun penetration is shit for tier 5, probably won't penetrate any tier 6s it will see. Hopefully with premium MM it won't see any tier 7s. Might consider getting one to match my friend's T14.

  10. Will this be a medium or a heavy?

  11. -13 depression? Imagine all the hull downs. Wicked...

  12. That's a lot of armor for a tier 5 :S

    So it's basically a slower, more heavily armored T14?

    I'm sold

    1. Take note of the abysmal penetration

      Delete
  16. I HAVE the same pentration on my m4a2e4...

    and it's not a big problem.....

  17. Hmmmm that depression is very nice

  18. Wow, I've been waiting for this. Seems good enough, but I have my doubts about that gun unless it gets favorable MM. I'd rather have a 6-pdr than the 75mm Mk.VA though. Didn't touch the Mk. V on the Valentine or Churchill I due to the low pen, but I guess that it will work quite effectively with that armor. We'll see how it performs once it arrives.

  19. Tier 5 with such armor?

    WG says: Buy premium accounts and spray premium ammo.

    It's BS when most tier V medium tanks have 110 penetration and there is another tier V with side armor above 100

    1. Look at Kv-5 - 169mm of penetration, yet 3rd tank in game in terms of net income. This tank is a pusher and if somebody uses it like that, it will work.
