    Lorraine 40t Appreciation Thread

    To be fair, the post above him is a bit old. In my opinion, Lor. is much much better because 20kph faster top speed, 32mm more pen on standard, and a better premium round (263mm APCR vs 250mm HEAT). The M4 has a very good gun concerning alpha, shell velocity, handling, and dpm for a 122mm, but comes at the cost of being slow, big, and paper. 200mm apcr pen used to be good when the tank came out, but now is quite bad. You can't reliably pen an IS-3 from the front, let alone a Defender or VK 100.01.P, and tier 8's see tier 10 more often now in my experience. The Lor. is my favorite premium. Tier 10 matches aren't a problem when you have an autoloader with good pen and good speed. 1200 clip potential with a decent reload gives you a lot of options in any tier you play, and it plays an excellent support role when bottom tier. As said before, this tank is one of the best along with Skorp G and Lowe for whatever matchmaking you get.

    Obj 430U

    I found the 430U to lose it's ammo rack and fuel tank quite regularly, so I wouldn't run food unless you run the ff directive, which is fine to do especially at tier 10 as most games you'll still make bonds.

    T49 -- Land Arty in a Bite-Size Package

    I know that @CraBeatOff is running the improved version of that setup (i.vstab, i.gld, i.vents) and is enjoying it a lot. Not having optics is less of a problem when you're usually running with someone that does.

    The Somua SM tier VIII premium French heavy is heat pennable with 140/90/70 unless you're able to hit the pixel in the middle of the back of the turret that's 35mm.

    T49 -- Land Arty in a Bite-Size Package

    If you're above them, by all means shoot it. If not, I personally haven't found my T49 able to aim for such small things. I'd just shoot at the gun mantlet and splash into the 45mm deck.

    I WANNA GO FAST: The T-100LT Appreciation Thread

    I use AP to more reliably pen the sides of superheavies/casemate tds, and for shooting tanks with armor that are farther than ~200m away, as AP has much less pen drop off compared to APCR. For example, on fisherman's bay north spawn, I'll go to the E7 bush next to the house to spot their heavies crossing into the city, and load AP to pen their sides. You have to lead quite a bit more, but I've found AP to be more reliable at that range than APCR. APCR has 184mm of pen at 500m, whereas AP retains 223mm.

    Thanks goes to all of you here. I lurked around wotlabs for about a year, and then finally made an account when I wanted to ask a question that seemed to have not been asked yet. I love all that I've learned and continue to learn, and appreciate all the work and content you all have contributed. 

    Special thanks to @CraBeatOff for taking time to platoon with me, being patient with me, teaching me things that I still strive to learn and master, and especially for introducing me to my favorite tank in the game, the glorious T49. You've helped me enjoy the game so much more than I could have on my own.

      congrats!

      alot of people have trouble 3 marking the Bat (it was one of my most frustrating 3-marks), so that's quite an accomplishment.

    Your replays are always enjoyable to watch, but T49 replays are particularly gratifying!
