Howdy Boom Jockeys!

 

Very soon, two vehicles are coming to the Supertest:

  • The M-III-Y, a Tier VIII American heavy tank
  • The AMBT, a Tier VIII American medium tank

 

Spoiler

The M-III-Y, like the higher-tier representatives of the Yoh branch, features the new reserve track mechanics. The vehicle has an additional track attached to the main one. This allows the vehicle to continue moving (although with a speed penalty) even if both main tracks are destroyed.

To the Supertest, the vehicle also comes with two top (90 mm and 105 mm) guns. The first gun is more accurate and has higher damage per minute, while the second one has higher damage per shot. The test will determine which configuration will be final—whether both guns or just one of them will remain.

The 90 mm gun causes 240 HP of damage per shot. Penetration of the main APCR shell is 223 mm, and the special HEAT shell has 290 mm of penetration. The gun's accuracy is 0.37, with an aiming time of 2.1 s, and a reload time of 6.4 s.

The 105 mm gun causes 320 HP of damage per shot. The penetration value of the main AP shell is 208 mm, and the penetration value of the special APCR shell is 245 mm. The gun's accuracy is 0.39, has an aiming time of 2.3 s, and a reload time of 8.9 s.

Frontal turret armor measures up to 279 mm in thickness, and the durability of the vehicle is 1,450 HP. It has a top speed of 40 km/h and its specific power is 15 h.p./t. Like the higher-tier representatives of the branch, this vehicle has good gun depression/elevation angles: –10/20 degrees.

The M-III-Y has the same pros and cons as the Tier IX and X vehicles of the Yoh branch. The vehicle will play well on irregular terrains thanks to its good gun depression/elevation angles and solid turret. The vehicle's good mobility and the reserve track mechanic will improve its survivability, even if an enemy tries to immobilize you, which will allow you to use different tactics and maneuvers on the battlefield.

 

Spoiler

The AMBT is a medium tank with an auto-reloading mechanism. The vehicle features a 105 mm gun and a three-shell magazine. Loading of the first shell takes 18 s, the second one takes 13 s, and the third one takes 12 s. Reload time between shells in the magazine is 3 s. The main APCR shell is capable of penetrating as much as 215 mm of enemy armor and causing 360 HP of damage, and the special APCR shell has 278 mm of penetration and the same damage per shot. 

The vehicle has decent frontal turret armor with a thickness of up to 250 mm.  It has a top speed of 40 km/h and its specific power is 22.2 h.p./t. Gun depression/elevation angles are –9/10 degrees. 

The AMBT is a typical medium tank that can play the role of the basic firing unit thanks to its good damage per shot and a three-shell magazine, and the good penetration value of its special APCR shells. This allows you to cause damage not only to same-tier but also to higher-tier opponents. The solid turret and rational angles of its armor plates allow this vehicle to play hull-down. However, the hull and turret traverse speeds are rather low which may cause some difficulties in close-range combat.

M-III-Y :

 

90mm Gun .37 dispersion will be buff.. (in WoT today meta anything above .35 is horrific for heavy tank with apcr.. but when loading Premium Round all issues are gone.)

290 premium spamming for 80% of the battle and 18% for some apcr long range and 2% HE meme... soo again another Premium spamming heat BS

105mm Gun ... you really need to buff this... 320 AVERAGE ( a low damage roll with that dispersion and the penetration... ) CMOnnn.. you cant be serious....

208mm Penetration regular AP... Good luck dude in Tier X.. and spamming 245 APCR with .39 base disperision... 

The base dispersion value of the 105mm + ( hidden stats on the move and turret rotation are not avalaible in the picture ) i just vomit on my keyboard. ( using the 105 and miss 60-65% of your shot and lowp en roll and low damage roll PepeLaugh )

 

how the 90 and the 105 can have the same gun depression ? ...

 

 

AMBT : 

 

Standard Apcr with .38 dispersion ( without hidden stats ) ... LMAOOOOOO STOP DOING THIS ! RNG ALREADY make dispersion lying as a stats... and you give this sh1te bad dispersion... and you think really someone will go play like a brawler with this ???  face to face you get murder 10 times. )

Standard Apcr with 215 base penetration.... ( Cmon man... you cant be serious when making the stats ??? Hello Balancing Derpartement .. call us back... we might need some tweak.. because it sooo useless in today WoT where we balance dadada random stats...)

Premium round ( 278 ) is the reason why you play this sh1te tank. 

 

2 useless tanks in the supertest they should named that article.

AMBT looks very good.

Initial stats aren't too bad either but hopefully will be tweaked a bit.

I'm getting a feeling that AMBT will be in the Christmas boxes :)

Honestly with how many are already in line to be put into the game I think it will be after Christmas (probably another marathon tank)
