Hey, everyone! 

 

Hope that you’re having a great week! 

 

Today, we’re starting the first Supertest of two new Polish tanks, the 50TP Tyszkiewicza (a Tier IX heavy) and the 60TP Lewandowskiego (a Tier X heavy). These tanks are quite compact for their class, with some hefty armor and great alpha. Their speed is a bit lacking, but with their great armor you don’t need to be overly speedy in a fight. 

 

Being the Tier X, the 60TP Lewandowskiego has great all-around armor and a large caliber gun dealing 750 points of alpha damage.

 

 

In these tests, we’ve implemented both 130mm and 152mm versions of this gun and we will decide between them at a later point. What are the drawbacks? Well, the 60TP has mediocre penetration and limited mobility (due to a low engine power of 10–13hp per ton of weight). This tank will play as a compact ‘superheavy’ that can slowly push through enemy defenses using its armor to block damage while dishing out some hits with its high alpha gun. 

 

60TP Screenshots

 

The 50TP Tyszkiewicza resembles its bigger bro in a few ways.

 

 

It’s not overly quick, but it is well armored and comes with an alpha that is fairly impressive for a heavy. A single shot from its 130mm gun will deal around 560 points of damage, and further testing will help us define the exact amount. Since the 50TP Tyszkiewicza is a Tier IX tank, its mobility and armor stats are lower than those of the 60TP.

 

50TP Screenshots

 

The current stats for the top Polish heavies are mostly reference marks used to define their gameplay roles, while still allowing for a very comfortable playing experience. We are going to try different values for alpha and also for mobility and targeting/aiming stats.

After the test, the stats for the 50TP and the 60TP may likely change.

 

We’ll look at the data and the feedback from you and introduce adjustments if needed.

 

Be sure to keep an eye out on the news, and best of luck in battle!

Yea, not sure how the sub 330mm penetration guns are viable in the age of Obj 268 V4.  Same issue as IS7, Foch B etc.  It would be great maybe OP tank otherwise

Sub par armor and high alpha derpy guns. This is not going to go well with the meta.

Getting tired of hearing "new super heavy with great armor and high alpha coming!"... Seems everything coming out recently has great armor and far too.much alpha...

If the 4005 can penetrate it frontally, I don't think it's acceptable at Tier X.

Sexualizing a tank?

Not a fan of 750 alpha on a heavy tank. If youre gonna make it a 152mm gun, make the alpha 650... otherwise go with the 130mm gun.

Since Wargaming has admitted to inventing crap out of thin air with this Polish line, can we please have the Edelweiss added into the game?  It's literally more real than these high tier Polish tanks are.
