For the Record: MT-25 / T-50-2 comparison
Just a quick post about the preliminary comparison of both vehicles (keep in mind though that MT-25 will be tier 6): Current T-50-2 / MT-25 Hitpoints: 560/570 Weight: 14,7/25,82 Engine: 550hp/600hp Hp/T: 37,4/23,23 (major nerf here, we can expect slower acceleration) Traverse: 38/48 (major buff, we can expect more maneuverability) Maximum speed: 72/72 Hull armor: (37/37/37)/(45/40/40) (minor buff) Turret armor: (45/40/40)/(45/45/45) (minor buff) Shell damage for top gun: 85/85 (same) Shell penetration for top gun: 112/112 (same) If the gun is the same, we can expect: Dam: 85/85/95 Pen: 112/189/29 Acc: 0.34 Aim: 2,3s Rate of Fire: 20,69/22,22 (minor buff) Turret traverse: 45/48 Viewrange: 370/370 Radio: 730/730 Preliminary verdict We can expect something not as quickly accelerating (thus reducing the motorbike effect), but somewhat more maneuverable. On flat ground, it’ll be even more motor-bike like, but on slopes it will have more problems due to the lower hp/t, it will possibly be a bit more challenging to play. The weaponry and armor practically remains the same – the difference here is: T-50-2 armor could be “double-overmatched” (improved normalisation) by 75mm guns, while MT-25′s armor will have that for 88-90mm guns only. Thus, we can argue MT-25 will be a bit more tougher than the small armor upgrade would suggest. The weaponry remains the same, with a slight buff in RPM. Overall, it will be an interesting and maneuverable tank, with roughly the same properties as the T-50-2.
