72 is the hardcap built into the game. It will never reach 97kph.

If you're looking for what's the tank stats, the Wiki is your friend for that.

But yeah the A-20 and T2 Light are the fastest at 72 km/h (hardcapped max speed). A-20 doesn't have any other redeeming features other than it's gun, and even that;s not too good. Stick with the what you have now if you want speed.

Maybe not, but that's how fast it actually went.

Well, considering the thread is about the fastest speed achieved in game, the Hellcat's speed in reality is irrelevant. Because it can't and won't go 97kph when it is finally added.

None of the tanks in the game actually moved at the speed they do in the game, unless they were going downhill on a paved road and redlining their transmission. Rated maximum speed is not even remotely the same as maximum practical speed.  I see no reason why the Soviets should get to enjoy their ideal road speed while bouncing through the forest but the M18 Hellcat doesn't.  Other than... dare I say... Bias.  <_<  Hellcat was the fastest armored vehicle of the war. If it's not the fastest vehicle in the game when it arrives, something is very wrong.

Overlord, is it true there is a hardcoded 72kph limit? What does this entail for the Hellcat, which could reach 96kph? How will it be compensated?

Information comes from here


Yeah, it's true. No vehicle will get more than 72 km/h max speed.

If any sort of compensation is needed at all, we have got plenty of options to make it actually.

Under the latest tag in the Q&A thread, just search speed limit in that thread if you want to see for yourself.

Lovely.  So the Hellcat's single most defining feature is going to be taken away.

I bet it drives like a whale too, despite wartime video that shows it being able to turn through a high speed 180 within its own length and having a quite impressive power:weight ratio.

:(

The t2 light will get to 72 fairly quickly, quicker with boosts like better fuel.
It'll also hold it better than the A-20 on turns or up hills due to weight.

Naturally it has the drawback of having as much armor as a VW beetle.

They might even remove the 'hard coded limit' later on.  We'll have to wait and see.
