Best Armor America - T110E3

Recommended Posts

So, I picked up my E3 last week and have just started the process of getting comfortable with the tank.  It's a beast and I'm so thankful that the speed is better than the T95!

 

Let's have a look at the armor profile:

Gotta Protect them sides:

So in reviewing the armor you need to protect your lower front plate while keeping your front forward.  The side armor isn't amazing so you can't really use a deep angle.  There are a couple of tiny weak spots available frontally if the LFP is hidden, but they are quite small and difficult to hit.

 

The 155mm gun is pretty good and it loads APCR as its premium ammo which favors the current game mechanics and a rate of fire of 3.28 rounds per minute.  The alpha and penetration are high enough to be serviceable against nearly any opponent.

 

AP              APCR         HE

850hp        850hp         1100hp

295pen      375pen       90pen

 

 

 

Need to get some more time in this tank so I can start to enjoy it as much as I do my Object 268.  Even though it's significantly faster than the T95, at 24km/h it's taking me a bit to get used to compared to my other Tier 10 TDs (268 and 155) because it cannot flex as well.  Initial map positioning is quite different than a camo TD and once you commit to a flank you're sorta stuck there.

 

Will be on the lookout for good replays that demonstrate strong initial map positioning in this tank.  Will be downloading some from here: http://www.noobmeter.com/tank/na/T110E3  I've also been going through some recordings on Endo's stream.  I just put a postit note over his webcam to make it possible.

Only part that autoaim from 450 pen heat bounces is mantlet edges. Upper plate pened reliably by 375 pen apcr from closer distance and 400+ pen heat from any distance. Inner gun mantlet pened by 300+ pen. While OP against regular ammo, against TD goldspam its just hopeless.

 

This are training room tests, not BS made up claims.

Yeah, I know the armor isn't perfect.  I still get penned frontally.  If I run into an E3 myself or even think I'm going to run into one I automatically switch to premium ammo.  It's still some of the strongest frontal armor in the game no matter how you look at it.

Weren't you torn apart frontally by 2xHEAT-spamming IS-8s the other day in Live Oaks?

If you point your front at me in your E3, 100% chance I will never pen it. I cant deal with them.

 

What I learned from this thread is...switch to prem and aim inner mantlet, or UFP if sufficiently close. Always learning something from this forum.

Most of the time when I get penned it's in the spots marked A1 or on the LFG towards the sides (not in the center) if you look at the first diagram.  I think I've only been penned at A5 once and all signs point to it being a lucky shot instead of a well aimed shot from an accurate gun.

but but but but 

 

w/r paddin

I think xxXXXXXxXXXXXxXxxxxxxXXXXX_Endo_XXXXxxxxXXXXxxXXXXXXXXxx w/r pads as well as anyone and from what I've seen he never runs his E3 with 2 T57s.  Usually a T-62a/Obj140/Batchat is one of the tanks he E3s with.

Actually for maxi-pad it's bat+e3+57.

 

2 bad the e3 is only there to sit afk distracting the enemy while the 57 farms everything.

 

The e3 really excels in carrying uncarriable games.

Once it was elhalluf versus 2 purple platoons and our team was entirely red.

So I pretty much sat at the back of base, as the 2 purple platoons just gave up on trying 2 pen me.  

A hulldown e3 is a bitch to deal with, especially if he has 300+m distance to coverhimself with.

While my platoon just fast capped in t62+bat while everyone was distracted

 

heuheuehue 200 dmg  fast cap bat wins.

Completely worth

 

How my e3 is setup atm

Really thinking about super heavy spall, as he from tier 10 tds still do 400dmg.

I've got rammer, GLD, toolbox right now because I'm not daring enough to run 2 repair kits and skip the fire extinguisher.  Need more crew skills.

 

I see you've got 2 nice looking young black guys on board with your animu crew.  Also, in what world is that tank skin attractive.  I'd rather have clown car paint.

Foch 155 has larger and easier to pen weak spots frontally, absolutely no side armor, HEAT for a premium round, and a french gun with french gun handling.  Don't get me wrong, I love the Foch 155 as well, but I'm having fun playing the E3 also.  Object 268 is still my favorite Tier 10 TD, but I also don't have an E4 yet either.
