So the long-awaited Tiger Killer tank is here, and though it doesn't do what a lot of people expect from the overblown legends, it seems decent so far. Note that this tank does not have a radioman. The bow MG ball has been removed and plated over, and while on the visual model there is a pyramid-shaped cover, the hit box is entirely flush, so that particular hull weak point is gone. Not that it matters, as just about everything you meet is going to go through the glacis plate. The Good 171/239mm penetration 150 damage 4.06 second reload with 100% crew and rammer Can mount a vstab Good gun handling Good muzzle velocity Top gun can be carried over from Centurion or heavy line. The Bad Slow. 36kph instead of the E8's 48. Like many later British tanks you will find yourself cruising at an unsatisfactory top speed. -6° of depression, same as an Object 140. Very noticeable on a tank as tall as the Sherman. Mantlet is tiny, won't do you a lot of good. -10m view range compared to E8 If you advance up the line you will have to unlock the same gun again because it's the AT variant, as well as suffering a hit to training. The Funny Second engine increases horsepower by 6.25%, power/weight only 0.4% due to it being stupidly heavy. Turns out when you link five inline six engines together shit weighs a lot. Top engine is much more sensible, though.
My favorite fake news. http://www.cnn.com/2017/05/22/europe/manchester-arena-incident/ The blast occurred just before 10:35 p.m. local time as the concert was wrapping up, according to Manchester police. The explosion, which apparently took place in the arena's main corridor, sent panicked fans running for the exits. "We are working to establish the full details of what is being treated by the police as an appalling terrorist attack," British PM May said in a statement. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/05/22/world/europe/ariana-grande-manchester-police.html But wait! What is your brain thinking?
After countless games, and I have been doing fine in the Charioteer up to then, i've yet to have Aced this tank. Until this match. This was a match back in patch 9.15, before Swedish tanks spammed the server and additional UI features like damage logs were added in 9.16.
So WG announced plans to introduce light tanks beyond tier VIII for the USA, Russia, France, Germany, & China. Meanwhile, the UK light tank line pretty much, and since 2012, ends at the Crusader, at tier V. Is there nothing out there viable for the UK light tanks beyond tier 5?
