Howdy Boom Jockeys!

 

 

Two vehicles are coming to the Supertest:

• Charlemagne—British Tier VIII heavy tank

• K-91 Version II—Soviet Tier VIII medium tank

Charlemagne

The Charlemagne is equipped with a well-stabilized 120mm gun capable of causing 440 damage per shot. Both the standard and special ammo are AP shells that can penetrate 220 and 270 mm of enemy armor, respectively. Their drawback is a relatively low shell velocity (~600 m/s and ~900 m/s, respectively). The gun accuracy is 0.44, the aiming time is 3.2 s, the reload time is 16 s, and the view range is 380 m.

The vehicle's durability is 1,500 HP. The frontal armor is quite sturdy: up to 170 mm on the turret and 130 mm on the hull. Considering the angles of the sloped armor plates, the overall frontal armor resembles that of a Tier IX vehicle. The vehicle, which has a specific power of 18 h.p./t, reaches speeds up to 42 km/h.

Thanks to the combination of dynamics and protection, the Charlemagne can both support heavy tanks and push the enemy line with allied medium vehicles. The gun depression angle is an incredible -10 degrees. In combination with the solid turret, the Charlemagne can take maximum advantage of any terrain. However, gun handling is far from perfect, a fact that should be considered when choosing tactics.

K-91 Version II

This vehicle was previously part of a Supertest but as a Tier IX tank. For the current testing iteration, it was rebalanced for Tier VIII, but its key features were kept: good dynamics, nice protection, and high firepower. The K-91 Version II is a classic medium tank designed for rapid attacks and dynamic combat.

Before people start freaking out, just FYI that the armor values on the K-91-II are not as good as they look. The UFP is angled at like 40 degrees, not 60, so that 175mm of armor isn't *that* good.

like, its still good for a tier 8 med, but its not "holy crap this is broken" like it looks at first glance.

3.2 second aim time on the Charlemagne is a big oof. I guess we'll have to see what it's like when it hits live servers.

There's NO chance that either of these end up in the game client in time for the holiday lootboxes.

Why can't we have a 2nd British medium line like the Russian or German mediums? There are clearly enough tanks to fix a new line. Instead WG decides to slap them all premium tanks that completely overpowers Centurions.

So a weak British tank, and another OP Russian medium tank with better armor and stats than all the Heavies and non-Russian tanks. WG wonders why they can't keep people on servers other than the Russian one.
