Howdy Boom Jockeys!

 

Soon, the M-IV-Y, a Tier VIII American heavy tank, is coming to the Supertest.

This is a Premium representative of the Yoh branch in the U.S. Tech Tree: vehicles that feature the new reserve track mechanic. Starting from Tier VII, these vehicles have an additional track attached to the main one. This allows the vehicles of the Yoh branch to continue moving (although with a speed penalty) even if both main tracks are destroyed.

This Tier VIII Premium vehicle is armed with a 105 mm gun that can cause 360 points of damage per shot. The penetration value of the main AP shell is 218 mm, and the penetration value of the special APCR shell is 247 mm. The aiming time is 2.5 s, and the gun dispersion is 0.4 m. The reload time is 11.3 s.

The thickness of the frontal armoring reaches 279 mm in the turret and 177 mm in the hull, but don't forget about the rational angles and the turret shape, which add to the overall protection of the vehicle. The vehicle's durability is 1,500 HP. The vehicle, which has a specific power of 18.1 h.p./t, has a top speed of 42 km/h.

In terms of gameplay, the M-IV-Y is a typical heavy tank—armored, moderately maneuverable, and has a good gun. At the same time, don't forget about the reserve track and the influence it will have on the vehicle's playstyle. For a new player, this feature will mainly be protection against a failure that facilitates escape from a seemingly stalemate situation, while for an experienced player, the combination of armor and the ability to move even with a destroyed track can open up new combat technics, even if they are risky.

I'd guess this is to be the theme of the Christmas 2021 season - new YOH line and a YOH premium in the loot boxes?

tbh the tech tree tier 8 looks way better than this thing. Granted it's turret armor technically can bounce most of tier 8 gold with the exception of a bunch of prem TDs and occasional high pen stuff. 

 

this gives off the vibe of a weird/worse renegade

Well, I just re-purchased the T1 Heavy, put a 100% crew back in it, put all of it's elite modules back in, and got it ready for battle later tonight.  I also turned off Accelerated Crew Training and plan to start later tonight grinding XP for the new YOH US line.

177 mm troll hull armour. When is Black Prince going to have a new gun or higher standard AP pen. Just make it shoot APCR as default.

Just rewatching the official video and they show the armor profile, the cupola is bright green. Also there's a second yellow weak point dead center and directly under the cannon. Why pay for this? Just get something Russian that has no built in weak spots.

So as this tank stands it’s worse than the renegade in every way besides speed? The renegade has the same cupola, just as strong of a turret, same depression, but oh man that sweet sweet renegade gun.
