People been saying that this tank is going to dominate the game as far as mediums.
Well i honestly have to say that if the enter in and have centurian mark 5 or centurian 5/2 this will disrupt things greatly.
Now this was developed within the time frame that the game follows.
this is a small replicated model version of this tank.
It was very modernized in design.
Now i dont know exactly what armor values they are gonna use for this tank as wargaming likes to make up numbers sometimes.
If any people are good with how angles and what that means for amor values go ahead and leave your input. If i was to do a comparison i would compare its armor to be something simliar to the t-54 or patton.
Now the gun however is a different story altogether.
This is have found historical data for that i wish to share.
The top gun for this tank if this is chosen to be the teir 9 british will have the famous 105 mm L7 gun.
Now this by all rights is a very modernized gun in fact is still used today by many of the main battle tanks as different variants these can be found on the t 54 and 55.
So lets get some stats going.
This gun is said to be able to at a maximum shoot 10 rounds a minute.
source for this is from wikipedia but this website has since been monitered with great references and very accurate sources.
- Calibre: 105 mm (4.13 in)
- Cartridge: 105×607 mm R, 105×617 mm R
- Barrel length: 52 calibres
- Weight: 1,282 kg (2,826 lbs)
- Length: 5.89 m (19.3 ft)
- Rate of fire: 10 rounds per minute (maximum)
- APERS-T ("Anti-personnel-tracer")
- APFSDS: 1,475 m/s
- HE: 1,174 m/s
- HESH: 737 m/s
- Smoke-White phosphorus incendiary
- Target Practice
- Target Practice Discarding Sabot
Which leaves us with just couple that they will choose from. These specifically
HESH: 737 m/s
HE: 1,174 m/s
APFSDS: 1,475 m/s
Now if they use anything close to these or its specifications for how many times this is gonna shoot.
You are going to start seeing some hate threads and op threads. I mean a 105 that shoots even 9 shots a minute. With pentration according to some of these rounds with there accelerations somewhere in the range of 200mm-300mm if not more is going to kill.
So ill leave the rest to you guys and experts on this I just wanted to provide this for you.
I already have 500k saved to get either the top teir british heavy or medium its going to be exciting.
UPDATE: omg haha its been confirmed the top teir centurian that will be in the british will be a combination of mark 5 to 9 so this definitely going to be interesting please refer here http://forum.worldof...ish-are-coming/
