Every time someone says 279 is OP I wish I could give to him for a game in ranked so they can see how fun it it to not bounce anything except if you angle it so you can't shoot back.

People have this ridiculous notion, that 279E is like Type 5. Load gold and it melts. It isn't. Type 5 isn't even truly like that, because it has portions of auto-bounce ricochet angles that gold won't even go through too. I don't know who the fuck started that shit speak, but it is wrong wrong wrong. 279E armour is significantly stronger, way more angled. Look at its armour LIVE model, using standard med tank 33Omm HEAT (which is common because 9O7A)
It is almost ALL RED. Auto pen on this tank is a med, and is nonsensically retarded to even say. The UFP comprises of armour patches ranging from 14O-185mm. That needs nerfing, from 12O-165mm, just flat out -2Omm every spot there. And lower front underneath hull, reduce it back to 2Omm so you can over match it, not 55.
Then we are talking, the tank isn't a fucking sledgehammer made out of Wolverines fucking claws, blocking thousands of damage from 8 fucking enemies at once, like Deus there.
@Diriz0n Well IDK man. You will rarely see it at that angle of the pic. I don't like its armor when I'm playing it, if I want to shoot back I'll get penned. On even ground I lose races vs sconqs. And I LOVE it when I see it on enemy team. Just a big phat target. Sides are trash too. But I get that in randoms with pubbies not shooting gold it could be strong. But any nerf on the armor and it will be trash all around. Just a bad balanced tank.
Trust me. This is exactly the case of the following: ""Dude, you don't have the tank. You know only elite people have the tank, and people who don't have the tank, just say its op. But those who have the tank, know its not op."" It is the stupidest argument. The tank clearly is broken, and very much over powered compared to peers. People say the exact same shit about EBR75 and 1O5. Broken ass, op vehicles, and don't have it. BUT THEY FACE IT. And elitists, who have the fucking vehicles, say no, it is not OP because they have it and have a couple fails with them. Does that change anything? It is still a fucking illegal auto aiming, great gun disp/acc/aim-time, non overturnable, high camo, high pen HE light tank that UTTERLY dominates.
And by the way, 279E has on avg 3O% better side armour than super conqueror. Which in itself isn't trash side armour, so I don't get what you mean when you say trash. Are you the type, that refers to side armour as anything except Maus, Type 5, or E-Hundo as trash side armour? And please, show me it beats Super conqueror in speed tests. Please do.
This is the problem with WOT. Over reacting and nonsense. 0bj 7O5 and A are released, everyone calls them trash side scraping tanks because useless armour. When they have rear turrets, and wwwaaayyy better side armour than a great majority of high tier heavy tanks. Because the side armour isn't MAUS, 185mm, they are trash all of a sudden. Sure makes alot of sense. How about T11OE5, T11OE4, Kran, AMX54, 5OB, 215B.....how about we call tanks with actual trash side armours, trash
