Happy Friday, everyone! 


Hope that you’re having a good one!


Today, we’re beginning the Supertest of the third Polish tech-tree tanks: the 53TP Markowskiego, a Tier VIII heavy tank. It finds its place between the Tier VI–VII mediums and, slower but better armored, Tier IX–X heavies. I’ve added some screenshots in the spoiler below, so check them out! 

 


The armor of the 53TP is fairly decent for its Tier. However, the armor is excellent when compared to that of its predecessors. Still, it won’t shield you from frontal damage like on Tiers IX–X. This tank what you could call transitional: its turret is sturdy but its hull protection is mediocre, saving you mostly from shells of lower tier tanks. With gun depression of -8°, the 53TP will be good at terrain based play, being able to make use of the most advantageous (and sometimes unexpected) positions.


We’re going to give the 53TP a 122mm gun dealing 420 points of alpha damage, a bit above other Tier VIII heavies with guns of similar caliber. High alpha, together with good gun depression, is going to be the distinguishing features for top-tier Polish tanks. Though the other parameters of the TP53 gun are fairly standard, it’s enough to make this tank a dangerous heavy-hitter.


How do you play the 53TP Markowskiego, you may ask? Well, there are many ways but the most “comfortable” one is getting onto uneven terrain and relying on the solid turret armor. 420 points of alpha can hurt any opponent, and the reloading time isn’t too terribly high. The 53TP can cope well both in the open and in a city area; it’s a well-rounded vehicle that does have some perks.


This Supertest will show how efficient this Polish tank is, and show us how engaging it is in gameplay. We’ll check the battle stats of the 120mm gun version very thoroughly. Depending on the test results, we may revise the tank’s stats or even its battle role. Whether we do or we don’t, we’ll be sure to let you know.

Hmm ...

 

Looks familiar somehow ...


Has all the earmarks of that historic Czech-Polish close cooperation in Soviet-era AFV development ....
