    Kinda wish that american tank with the shit ton of tubes ontop was in the game as an spg

    Edited:

    For T50's to ramp off.
    VK4502(P)s could work well for T2 light ramps

    Imagine roof / mountain scouting with the T2 light

    God damn it, just finished a game where my whole fucking team rushed of following this AMX 50B on our team down one flank, ofcourse they get stopped right in their tracks by a couple of their tanks, and what does the AMX waste his orbital cannon-like firepower on? an ARL-44 at 50% health and then he dies, on the other side we are getting our asses handed to us by 2 E-75's and an IS-7. And you would think reaching tier 10 would teach you a thing or two about target prioritization and in general a know-how where the fuck your supposed to be.

    Why would I even buy the turret on the Pz3/4?
    It's worse than the original, but weighs a little less.

    You know your team is shit when you need to tell them that the IS-7, T54, Batchat, and AMX 13 90 need to be defended against.

    And then you know they're twice as shit when a t30, IS-7, Tiger P, and an IS-3 cant kill the batchat and t54.

    Modules: Don't bother buying them till tier 7-8 unless you have gold to transfer them.
    I agree with this in general, but there are some lower tier tanks like the Easy 8 that I absolutely adore and would never sell. Those tanks are fully kitted out with stuff.

    Info out on M103 and T110

    Google translated.

    Purpose: Testing equipment for suitability for use in combat

    Test object: Heavy Tank Level 9 M103.

    During the tests, it was revealed:

    Pros:
    - High speed rotation of the tower
    - High maneuverability
    - Rounded shape of the tower and hull

    Cons:
    - The presence of "Zamanov" (weakspot?) at the tower
    - Book low sides and stern
    - A large number of vulnerabilities on the Tower.

    The opinion of the tester:
    The long-awaited replacement of U.S. CT level 9, T34.
    Like all Americans, it has excellent maneuverability and speed of rotation of the tower. Firefly swirl it is almost impossible, but very easy to get away from it. The speed with insufficient M103 - about 35 km / h
    Armor has a small thickness for the HT level 9, but thanks to the slopes and rounded shape of hull and turret, the shells will often ricochet.
    Although enemy shell ricochet - it is good, it can turn against us. The fact is that because of the shape of the tower, with its base formed shell trap for shells.
    Another distinctive feature of the M103 - the accurate gun, possessing a great penetration.

    The tactics of the battle is similar to the ex-TT9, T34: hide the body and enter into a clinch with the enemy, in order to force him to shoot the front of heavily protected tower. I want to remind that the tactic "ololo" rush for the tank is not suitable, because He quickly turned into a pile of scrap iron
    During the tests, it was revealed:
    Pros:
    - High accuracy
    - Excellent maneuverability and speed of rotation of the tower
    - High turret front armor

    Cons:
    - The presence of vulnerabilities on the Tower
    - Low armor sides and back

    The opinion of the tester:
    Another change in the American branch of the TT. Is the designation T110E5. For the rank and file players such name does not matter much. This is the first time.
    We have great armor under severe bending, precision instrument, and high maneuverability.
    It's a Patton-overgrown: a fat, fat, arrogant, and accurate.
    The gun fires very quickly and the shells are often required us to fly in space (wat). T30 fans grieve - for 700-800 HP damage we are not destined to see. Now it is a regular HT10, albeit a very good one.
    The rate of fire is slightly higher than that of its predecessor, the M103. Maneuverability is one of the best of tier 9-10.
    The tower is not only a powerful armor forehead and sides, but also a very large machine gun turret, which will all be penetrating.
    LC tank is 36 rounds: BB, PF, and the COP.
    The tank is a worthy replacement T30 (transferred to the class of TD). Suppose he does not have huge damage, but it does not mean that he can not fend for themselves.

    Trollcannon refers to the Facepunch-specific neologism attributed to the high caliber, low velocity howitzer-type weapons available on certain tanks. These were made to fire larger HE shells. Technically the 122mm for the KV1 is a trollcannon, but the 152mm is the titular one.

    Another name for these weapons are "derp guns", created by the World of Tanks community. It's use in this thread, however, is a source of contention amongst the community.

    Yes. 122 with the stock turret, grind exp to the big turret + 152 and once you got both, switch at the same time. Don't ever use anything else than the 107/152 with the big box turret.

    AMX 40 grind wasn't as bad when all the new frenchies were coming out so all you saw in low tiers was fields of frenchies

    but now that the server has repopulated with tanks that have enough HP to suck up your shots but enough penetration to go through your armor it's kind of rendered useless
    Actually, despite the AMX 40's short-comings I've managed to one-shot a fair number of tanks when I had it.

    Enemy T30 was a pro who turned his turret but not his hull while I circled him in the open. Netted nice exp from him (and that's not counting the jagdtiger, IS3 and T34 which I raped too)

    Why are people so dumb?
    I was rolling past an enemy Lwe that was fighting a Panther 2 in my Pz3/4, suddenly the Lwe turns around, kills me, and then dies to the Panther 2 because he thought it was more important to kill me, than to kill the Panther 2 and live.

    Edited:

    I am convinced that Lwe player got the money for the Lwe by selling parts of his brain to some organ dealers.

    Did something similar to an IS-something-or-other the other day. He was tying up like 4 of our tanks, so I in my Machine-34 ran around him drawing his attention. Because fuck those 2 Heavies, a TD and a VK medium just around the bend, there's a T-34 to shoot!
    He didn't kill me though, strangely. I was actually able to circle back around and finish him off when he forgot about me.

    Speaking of no-damage crits, how is it even possible to penetrate the driver's viewport of a PzIV with a BL-9... for no damage

    Does the driver eat the high-velocity 122mm shell or something

    Known bug, shells that enter through the driver's vision slit have a fair chance of being eaten up by the driver. Apparently needs rework of every single tank hitbox to fix it

    I fucking LOVE getting 1500 exp on daily double on my AMX 13 90, which is the tank I am most seriously progressing.

    Edited:

    No, wait, that was KV-2, got 3400 on the AMX 90.

    At least something.
