In the current state of the game (3/5/7 MM), which TD is best for completing TD mission 8 "A Huge Caliber" for the latter two campaigns? The mission asks you to do x times the HP of your vehicle in damage, with the hardest version of the mission requiring damage five (5) times the HP of your tank.

 

I'm sure it can be done in most TDs (from tier six and onwards for the Obj. 260 mission), but what's the general consensus on which tank does it best?

Many will say the ScorpionG, but I did that mission rather quickly in my RHM Borsig.

Death barn works rather well ive heard. The conway can do it as well. The scorpion G can do it, but due to current MM issues, it isnt fun to use. Stalin's hammer might be able to do it as well.

I recently finished it with Hellcat. Low HP tier 6 TD is suitable for this I think.

SU 100 might be good with low HP and high alpha.

My suggestion is do it at tier 6.  Mostly because the tier 6 TDs have good guns but low HP.  If you do it at higher tiers, you will need to do insane amount of damages.  For example, to do the 5x one, with 2000 base HP in a tier 10 TD, you will need to do 10K damage, which is rather rare.  With a 550 HP tier 6 TD, you only need to do 2750, which is far more easily obtainable.  I am currently stuck at the 5x mission, but had a number of 2500+ damages.

 

Another option is to turn on grand battles with your death barn so that you have enough HP to farm.

Su-100, pretty easy to pull 2.5k damage with the 122mm gun, just need 6 shots that land and pen.

I think I did those in my SU-122-44... not that much HP and at a high enough tier where the enemy team has a large enough hp pool. Plus the reload is insane!!

I would recommend a T8 or T9 TD. This way you get a good gun and can get T10 games with more HP.

Can tier 6s be used for the 260 missions?

Lowest hp per tier just for fun:

T6: Dicker Max and WZ 131G

T7: IKV 90b, Steyr WT, and T-34-2G

T8: AMX AC 48, AMX CDA 105, STRV S1, UDES, WZ-111-1 FT

T9: Conway, STRV 103-0

T10: Grille, STRV 103B

 

So technically these are the best choices for this mission but that's not always true if you can't do good in them.

SU-100(t6 russian TD) is the way to go. I completed it with this TD.

Did that with Hellcat. TDs after tier 8 get more HP, making it more difficult to get 5x HP in damage dealt.

Had a battle the other day in my jagdpanzer IV tier6 with over 3000 hp which is 5 x the hit points so it can be done.

i completed fairly easily with dicker max due to its great firepower but low health

Checked my replays, I was wrong, I didnt complete it on the E25, I used the Dicker Max, and got 2750dmg and 7 kills working the center ridge on Fisherman's Bay
