I was thinking the binocs are helpful in my

tiger but its armor is so weak im wondering If I should go for a spall Liner. It doesn't make the armor thicker but I guess it protects the modules which are all over the tank. How do you guys run your tiger 1? Ive got 100% crew and am training for sixth sense, deadeye, preventative maintenance, situational awareness, and safe stowage.

This OP. 

 

The answers ain't gonna change.

 

Spall liners only get the armor thickness bonus on ramming and on HE shots that do NOT pen and HE splash.   They also cut stun times a bit.

 

If you get shot with AP, APCR or HEAT or an HE round pens it does not help any at all.

 

Rammer, GLD and vents or optics.

 

Edit:  A toolkit isn't a bad choice if you need a placeholder or your crew's repair skills are lacking.

No GLD, not needed on a fast aiming tank. GLD also only works when your tank is stationary.

Rammer, Vents, Optics.....yes, optics. View Range is very important, I use Optics on many, many HTs.

Use Spall Liner, tool box and CO2 tanks.

These are what you need.

Get rid of gld for vents and spall liner is useful against arty so its up to you.

Lol. I saw the title and I thought I had seen someone wanting to put a spall liner on a Tiger recently. I thought, what is going on, an epidemic where some streamer mentioned spall liner and a bunch of players actually believed him?

 

I had to check and see it was the same guy in both threads. Wow.

 

OP, you were consistently told that a spall liner is a bad idea, are you going to just keep posting threads in hopes someone actually validates that course of action? 

 

If you are that determined, you should just do it.

tier 7 heavy , German

I use to run vents , rammer, and GLD, did this for years. I now run vents, rammer and optics. Get 450+ view range with both my Tiger I and VK 4503, extra view helps with this support tank, plu i get extra XP now with spotting.

 Train your loader for safe stowage as soon as you can. Driver helps to have preventive maintence.

You're correct. I replied to your original post but it no longer shows up in "My Content".

If you need a spall liner in a Tiger I you are obviously playing the game wrong.
