Sometimes I randomly get behind slow tanks and type "GO FASTER XXXX". The E-50 is the king of shoving slow teammates forward, but really anything with some grunt behind it can make a slow tank move faster. Next time you are in your tier 6 medium tank in a tier 8 game and feel useless, try getting behind a friendly Lowe and getting him to the battle quicker then he could get their with his own power alone. It's hilarious and effective, mostly hilarious, and I am sure he will appreciate the boost.

It can make good speed on its own vertically.

I actually expected a joke about a T10 transport plane in WoWP.

You could do what me and my friends did and push one of us around a corner as a sacrifice.  Haha he was not pleased with us

I've received pushes from a few people while in the Lowe.  I'm most grateful to those people, even if I forget to tell you.

There was a thread on the RU server about the T110E3 where they actually showed to storm that there could be an improved 700 + BHP engine fitted on the T95 and that it was "tested", but all we can hope when this wonderful engine would be implemented. Possibly it may increase the T95 to 15 or 18km/h max speed with it.

Man, I laughed my ass off. I needed that. +1 to you, sir! Thanks large!

By the way...it's "Conga". Congo is a nation in Africa. They do the conga in Cuba. It's named after the drum they use.

We do that all the time when we platoon, I even had randoms help me out when I'm in my T28 proto or MBP, and I try to do the same when I can.

I don't mean to be a downer on the MPB, but I swear the speed
cap is a problem via the transmission.  I don't get how I only
reach 25 KPH downhill after hitting top speed.

My clan did that "Conga Line" in a training room in Cliffs a few weeks ago. We had a bunch of tier 9 and 10 heavies, and a lone T95. So 3-4 of us pushed the T95 up the big mountain to the lighthouse. Took 4-5 minutes of maneuvering and zig-zaging, but she finally got up there. And we looked around at the beautiful scenery, and then we began to push each other off of the top of the rock. Super fun!!! But really nice views from up there!

He gets to move faster and you've got yourself a bit of hull-down cover as a bonus.  When i'm in my T95 or maus, i don't mind being someone's meatshield, as long as they help me get there faster!

Haha yup. It just so happens that he was the perfect hight to cover my friend and I's lower plates. So our front lower plates effectively became 300mm think with a gun slapped on them :Smile_Default:  It was a good match haha.

I've found that my T-50-2 cannot make a Maus go faster up a hill.

sonza, maybe not.  But two can push a T95 uphill faster than 12kph.  At least the himmelsdorf hill is the only one i've tested.

I was pushing a SP with my 59 when he decided to stop for no reason, needless he got to the battlefield later and then died a horrible death. (Not gonna tell his W/R, his actions are self explanatory)
