  1. If I had to guess I would say the red zone around the gunmantlet in 305mm thick whereas the 2 "boobs" next to the gun are 235mm thick. The Upper-Upper plate then should be 178mm, the Lower-Upper plate 152mm and finally the lower plate 114mm or 102mm (If I had to guess 114mm, it is paper either way) Ehhh, the armor is pretty much the same as the Tier-9/10 Foch (~270-280mm EFA against AP, ~300-310 against HEAT) minus the tumurs but a bigger lfp which means the upper hull should be able to bounce most tier 10 non-TD standard rounds semireliably, though on flat ground gold won't have too much trouble penetrating the upper hull, though it should be pretty much impenetratable on a ridgeline due to the 10° of gundepression and the lack of any tumors on top of it except for the 305mm-zone around the mantlet and maybe the boobs. The gun is great though, it keeps the ROF of the Turtoise, adds 3mm of shelldiameter (You can now actually penetrate the STRVs frontally now! Hurray for overmatch-mechanics) and adds 20 alpha giving it the highest DPM in the game. Also, you are now actually faster than a Maus when driving fowards. We will see about it, on paper atleast it looks less shitty than half of the tier 10 TDs.
  2. Please note that "effective hp/ton" doesn't really exist, atleast not in the way you think it does. If it did the current FV4202 with its 12.26 HP/ton would already have similar acceleration to the batchat, atleast on hard terrain.
  3. Whoever hated the original Grille is going to have a field day with the new Shitbarn, whoever decided that it should get a mobile chassis with 10 degrees of gundepression should get punched in the face...
  4. The testserverstats are already up on tanks.gg. https://tanks.gg/v09201ct/list
  5. The Caernavon went from absolute shittier to godtier in a single patch, it gets fucking 2.7k BASE-DPM on a fucking tier 8 heavy, slightly more that the Super Conquerer fore some stupid reason. You get the same rate of fire as the Object 907 for only 40 less alpha 2 tiers lower. I can see this thing replacing the IS-3 on most positions except for pure hulldown-positions that don't require gundepression because of the somewhat unreliable turret against gold rounds. This is it boys, the IS-3 is getting powercreeped.
  6. As long as you don't act like a complete retard you will be fine (Being an asshole is fine as long as you don't overdo it), the mods a very lenient on this site. Then again, please act like a complete retard because the ban threads are usually the most entertaining threads to read on this forum...
  7. With a line of Russian Commissars behind you ready to shoot you, you would be a lot faster on your feet too.
  8. Let's see... Tier 4 and below: noone cares about those except for certain low tier wankers anyway. Tier 5 to 9: fucking boring to play, superheavy speed meets unreliable armor as everyone will just shit on your giant tumor. Low-alpha-high-DPM guns simply don't work on slow moving bricks without turrets, you either stay back and snipe pretending to be a shitty version of the swedish TDs or you drive fowards like a retard pretending to be a heavy assault gun and either face an enemy that is too stupid to shoot at your giant tumor or use your DPM to do some damage before you die a quick death. Tier 10 : Has been useless since the HESH-nerf and redundant with the introduction of the Type 5 Derp. 9 times out of 10 frustrating as fuck to play due to AIDS-gunhandeling, though you get to ruin some poor idiots game every once in a while. Not recommended to play when sober, though it can be fun with enough alcohol in your bloodstream, accuracy also seems to improve when being drunk (I need to do some more testing to confirm) On a serious note, if you want to spam HE at tier 10, just buy a Type 5 heavy.
  9. Basically the situation with the KV-85 with 122mm at tier 6 vs KV-122 at tier 7 which gets with the magic power of belencing better gunhandeling and double the gundepression even though they are literally the same fucking tank.
  10. Let's see... The Americans have a ton of Sherman-variants for obvious reasons. The British have the Sherman Firefly. The French have the Ravioli-version of the Sherman. The Russians have the Patriot-version of the Sherman. I guess the next logical step is for the Germans to get access to the Captured-variant of the Sherman...
  11. You paid with your soul and salty tears which is probably the biggest price you could pay.
  12. Gameplaywise they would be very similar to the Liberte, Stupidly thick armor on the upper plate (Think of the Liberte with 370mm nominal thickness on the upper plate and you would have the "new" tier 10 heavy if I remember correctly), shitty sidearmor and a bigger gun (Was it a 120mm or a 155mm on the tier 10?)
  13. According to your source you only get a token for completing the final (15th) missions with honors so it should be fine. Something to note however, the source is not clear on this but with the new system in place you might have to now unlock the final mission for all 5 classes instead of skiping one class by completing the other classes final missions with honors.
  14. Basically a free Object 260 for everyone who already has the T55A. Atleast I will get to unlock the finaly female crewmember (fuck that firemission, seriously) who will enjoy being the commander in some tank full of men ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
  15. Tell them to get the fuck out of there and don't take a "no" as an answer, they are most likely going to suffer a direct hit otherwise.
