For the Record: Straight Outta Supertest: T-34-85M
Source: world-of-ru Hello everyone, tired of T-54 clones? Okay, here’s a T-34 clone instead *trollface* An upcoming tier 6 Soviet premium medium tank. The description reads: Modification of the T-34-85 tank, created by the Factory No.183. It differed from the original tank by its improved frontal armor (at the expense of reducing the armor of the rear part) and fuel tanks, moved from the combat compartment to the rear. Only one prototype was created, as the suspension proved to be unreliable. As the description suggests, it’s basically a T-34/85 with more armor. It is equipped with 85mm S-53 gun and has following (preliminary!) characteristics. Penetration: 126/167/43 Damage: 160/160/280 DPM: 2002,2 Reload time: 4,795 Accuracy: 0,4 Aim time: 2,5 Depression: -5 Hitpoints: 740 Engine: 500hp Weight: 32,23 tons Hp/t: 15,51 Hull turnrate: 40 Viewrange: 350 I did some very preliminary comparison and it seems to be simply a stock T-34/85 (with second gun, stock engine, stock turret) with thick frontal armor. Oddly enough it is actually lighter than the original T-34/85 of the same ingame configuration, but has a bit worse terrain passability. The S-53 gun is buffed compared to stock T-34/85 (better aimtime) and has better DPM. But that’s all just preliminary. Please note that it is unknown whether this will be a regular premium or some sort of mission/CW reward.
