Back to my feud with X-Singular:
So how are you liking the MUCH smaller M3 Lee with a Turret and a BIGGER gun.
Oh wait, IT HAS NONE OF THOSE THINGS, the gun is the only good thing on the Lee and it Payed the price by LOSING the Turret.
Also the fact that it leads to the master of OPs the KV doesn’t really add to it’s image.
The Lee is smaller, has just a good a gun and much better sloped armour (51mm of SLOPED armour (which is equal to the M4 Shermans 51mm of slope=76mm of armour) compared to 30mm unsloped in additon). It payed for these advantages by having it’s turret removed but as much as I don’t like the Lee, I’d rather have it instead of the T28.
>Same frontal armor as Panther with better Side armor and better Ammo rack placement and the TRANSMISSION IS NOT ON THE FRONT OF THE TANK so NO bonfires from front/back shots and 1-Hit-Kills from side.
Oh boy, sit down Panzerfag and listen to the woes of the person who actually has both a Panther and a T-43:
The T-43 has worse frontal Armour that the Panther (though not by much) and the Panther has FAR superior turret armour (120+ huge ass mantlet versus 90+small mantlet and exposed ammo racks). IN ADDITION: The Panther is able to snipe thanks to it’s very good accuracy guns, which makes it’s armour a bit more potent since enemies will engage it at range. T-43 has horrible accuracy, IT NEEDS to get in close, putting it more at risk.
And did you know that the T-43 CAN be set on fire from the front? It’s true! The T-43 has very exposed fuel tanks that can be lit by hitting it dead center of the glacis.
The T-43 and T-44 are the absolute worse tanks in the game when it comes to ammo racks (Also, I want to test you. Where are the ammo racks on the Panther or even most of the German tanks?). You GAVE ME the link to the Wiki. Go read what it says:
*Dogfighting most medium tanks of your tier, especially the American ones, is pretty much a suicide, as even some tank destroyers, such as the Jagdpanther, can sometimes outmaneuver you, and the very popular IS series is just as fast as the T-43. *
Oh dear! Even a turretless panther can outmaneuver this POS! Even the heavy IS series is faster! And it has worst accuracy guns with slow reload time! How is this anyway better than the Panther is beyond me.
Same/worse armor than a Tier 6 MEDIUM tank (not heavy, medium), It’s a paper tank. Lower DPS then a Tier 6 MEDIUM, It struggles to output any damage. Worse mobility than the Tier 6 medium before it, For an engine THAT strong and costly to unlock, it should be doing 35km/H easily, not stuck at 29km/h. Horrible Grind Trip: There’s a reason that unlike all other tanks (which are simply called "stock) the Stock Tiger has a Nickname: “THE BABY TIGER” ; The Last gun you unlock (which sucks) is the STOCK gun for the next tier, yes it’s just THAT BAD. Inability to mount the shitty gun without unlocking the shitty Turret first, now you might ask why am I bringing this up? BAM: TIGER P baby! TWICE the frontal armor (200mm vs 100mm), same speed and IT CAN MOUNT THE SAME SHITTY GUN ON THE DEFAULT TURRET.
You talking about the VK3601H? It’s being reclassified as a Heavy and to be honest, it’s the one of the best Tier 6s when it comes to armour.
And seriously….the T29 is the only Tier 7 heavy with good armour. The IS? 100mm turret (upgraded turret doesn’t offer any better armour) and 100mm frontal armour, same as the Tiger. And the Tiger has 210 more hitpoints to make up for it.
WAIT You cry, THE IS HAS 120MM OF ARMOUR NOT 100!. Actually….the 120mm? That’s for the very small part of the armour where the Driver’s hatch is located. The much larger lower part is 100mm only.
Lower DPS, which T6 tank we talking about here?
I’ll leave the Baby Tiger for a bit later.
The 88mm L/71 is an excellent gun. Of course, you don’t know this because you haven’t played any Tier 7s of any other nations so let me show you, I’m comparing it to the top guns of the T29 and IS:
ROF of L/71 is ranked #1
Penetration of L/71 is ranked #1. T29 is close (198mm) and the IS WAY behind (175mm)
Accuracy of L/71 is ranked #1
DPM is tied at #2 with the T29. IS is first
Aim time is #2 with the T29 first and the IS trailing far behind
The only part where the 88mm L/71 is last is pure damage. Which as shown by your love of the 75mm L/100, you care less about if the DPS is better :/
As for the Baby Tiger comment, it’s not because he Tiger sucks at stock more than any other tank…..it’s because this game is populated by Panzerfags who go into the game and go straight for the Tiger because “I WANT TO KILL 6 TANKS EASILY MICHAEL WITTMAN DID IT! THIS 88MM CAN PERICE THE HEAVENS GURREN LAGGAN STYLE”.
They call it the Baby Tiger because it’s not what they expect, few if any people have seen the Tiger with a 75mm gun and that particular turret. Everyone expects the Tiger they heard so much stories about and as much as I love the Tiger…..It’s an overrated tank. It broke down too much, the armour was archaic and too heavy for its own good.
The Chieftain actually wrote an article simply to put to rest the “’WHY DOES MY STOCK TIGER LOOK LIKE THAT?” emails that support kept receiving. It’s quite an interesting read.
I do agree that the Tiger P is better. The Tiger H needs the extra speed to set it apart from it’s heavier cousin. In Fairness, the Tiger P has lower acceleration than the Tiger H but it has a 670HP engine pushing 60 tons….the Tiger has 870 HP pushing 59 tons and the only difference is…. a bit of acceleration? It needs a higher top speed!
It lasted ONE UPDATE before the 15cm pen was nerfed back to just 200mm, of course after a lot of objection from the players it was boosted back up, but now HE is useless so meh, Keyword here is “when it was introduced” as in no longer now.
Things swing in and out of balance all the time. “Now” does not mean “Always has been and always will be”
>A Wild T110 appeared.
>Can’t: Too slow.
>Attempt to flank that thick hunk of metal.
>Fine then: Fight.
>Attack: 0 Damage
>Get Hit: 400 Damage
>Friendly arty Fired!
>Missed: T110 is too fast.
>Enemy Arty Fired!
>Direct hit: You are too slow.
End of turn 1.
Repeat untill the Maus is a smoking wreck and the T110 has a slightly smeared paint-job (OH NOES)
Silly Hypothetical scenario that means nothing. Maus not aiming at massive tumour or lower plate, T110E5 MOVING AND SHOOTING accurately at the same time (where the fuck does this happen?) somehow always hitting weakpoints in the armour (Upper Glacis of Maus can reliably bounce T110 rounds)
Also….he’s running from arty BUT NOT exposing his side armour at the same time?
Please leave the silly hypothetical scenarios out of this.
T95 gets both better armor and better gun, 15cm > 12.8cm.
Before you tell me it can’t turn for shit and moves too slow, it has 150mm side slanted armor, that thing is more armored than the front of a King Tiger, also if you are moving in a TD for a purpose other than relocating to another sniping location tahn you are playing TDs WRONG.
You’re a DPS nut right? The 12.8cm has the second best DPS in the entire game.
2940 DPM compared with 2460 for the T95 and 2625 for the Obj 704.
The 12.8cm has excellent accuracy, excellent aim time and excellent penetration. The 12.8cm is arguably one of the best, if not the best, guns in the game.
AND NO YOU HAVE TO MOVE AS A TD! MEDIUMS FLANK, ARTY HITS.
If a T95 gets in an arty’s crosshairs or if an AMX 13 90 gets you alone or god forbid a Lorraine…..
That’s it…give up…go home. It’s over.
YOU STILL HAVE ONLY 1700 HP THAT’S 3 OR 4 ARTY HITS
Did I say that the A-20 gets twice the Horsepower as the Pz38nA? I did? Wow!
>tier 4 light
>actually looking at its combat abilities
>MatchMaker is still suck
>Actually caring about Horsepower not power to weight. (OMG MAUS HAS SO MUCH HORSEPOWER MUST BE FAST AS SHIT)
>A-20 has 25 HP/ton 38nA has 22 HP/Ton. Very small difference
>38nA has 40 extra meters of view range, makes up for the very small difference in speed.
>I already proved that the Pz38nA is superior to nearly everything the A-20 has except suicide run
>I know prove that it has the same ability in suiciding, which actually really only needs a decent speed.
You see X, we call this “information” and “compare and contrast” and hypothetical not thought out well situations are not any of those.
Also, since you like nicknames that much, the A-20’s nickname is “Noob Trap”. And yes, I have played the A-20. I have suffered through it.
