Howdy Boom Jockeys!

 

 

Today, a representative of the new Polish branch, the CS-63, will try to make it through the closed Supertest. This Tier X medium has some quite promising characteristics! Let’s take a look.

It’s armed with a 105 mm gun delivering alpha damage of 390 points. A standard AP round can penetrate 258 mm of enemy armor, while a special APCR can go through 315 mm of it. In 8.5 seconds, the gun is reloaded enabling you to cause even more damage. As for other parameters, the dispersion and the aiming time are 0.36 at 100 m and 2.3 seconds, respectively. Also, the gun sports decent stabilization values and the vehicle has a view range of 400 m.

Armor-wise, it’s quite an ordinary vehicle: its front armor plates are 260 mm thick, but mainly in the gun mask, while other areas have less protection. The hull’s protection is even weaker: 80 mm in the front, however, the armor plates are well-angled. Overall, the Pole’s hit points amount to 2000.

The best thing about CS-63 is its mobility. The tank can move in two modes: standard and rapid. Switching between them spurs dramatic changes in the vehicle’s dynamic characteristics. In standard mode, the maximum speed is 55 km/h, while when putting in rapid mode, the Pole can hit 70 km/h. Also, with the rapid mode on, its engine reveals a whopping increase in power: from the standard 740 hp up to 1150 hp. While the dynamics increase in rapid mode, the performance of the gun suffers (the stabilization and the aiming time values decrease significantly) and the vehicle becomes more visible.

It should be noted that the impact produced by switching between modes is far from set in stone, and both the numerical values ​​and the characteristics might change.

Summing up, the CS-63 is a classic medium tank. It has a decent gun, mounted on a flexible, yet poorly armored platform. However, putting the Pole in rapid mode allows for a much wider area of control over the map and expands the range of tactical options. In skillful hands, this vehicle can perform to the utmost of its abilities.

Important to note: The engine boost mode makes the gun handling way worse on these. Its not stupid and broken like the EBR's boost mode.

The speed alone is a problem. Its the single largest problem with the EBRs too.

This is a remarkably stupid idea when one of the most problem lines of tanks in the game right now are tanks that are too fast for the current map sizes. Drop the speed mode from consideration entirely.

Good job, let's introduce more "shenaniganary" instead of reeling in some of the current.   /S

With the speed boost you might as well nerf everything about the tank when you press X or whatever button it takes to switch modes. This tank is quite literally an EBR with some armor, except remove everything good or "op" about the EBR.

Really, do tanks need to have some silly gimmick just so they can be introduced into the tech tree? Explains why the devs say they have "no information" for more US tanks in the tech tree but enough for reward and premium vehicles.

Looks like a great tank, balanced, worst penn than other APCR like the Leo. Well done WG, this time its not an OP monster that then needs a nerf. Its just like their heavy counterpart, good for a specific role, i like the idea.
