Howdy Boom Jockeys!

 

The T54 Heavy Tank will soon be rolling up to the Supertest
This tank is equipped with a 120 mm gun that deals 450 HP of damage per shot. The penetration value of the standard shell is 240 mm, and the special HEAT shell penetrates 320 mm. It has an aiming time of 2 s, a dispersion of 0.38 m, and a reload time of 13 s.
The effective frontal armor in the hull and turret is 254 mm, and the vehicle's durability is 1,700 HP. The tank also features –12 degrees of gun depression.
The T54 Heavy Tank is a typical representative of the U.S. heavy tanks. Solid turret armor and a good gun depression angle allow this vehicle to take advantage of rough terrain and various covers. However, due to the low maneuverability of these vehicles, you'll have to take some time to consider the best routes for your tank.

KV-4 KTTS (Tier VIII Soviet tank destroyer)

This tank destroyer features reliable armor for its tier. The frontal hull armor reaches 200 mm, while the turret armor reaches 250 mm. The vehicle's durability is 1,400 HP. It also offers a top forward speed of 35 km/h, with a specific power of 12.7 h.p./t.

The vehicle has a 107 mm gun that can cause 360 HP of damage per shot. The penetration value of the standard shell is 227 mm, and the special APCR shell penetrates 289 mm. It has an aiming time of 2.5 s, a dispersion of 0.36 m, and a reload time of 8.4 s.

The KV-4 KTTS is a well-armored vehicle. Its rear turret placement and gun traverse angles (90 degrees) allow this vehicle to sidescrape effectively both from cover and in open areas.

KV4 KTTS has been in the game for long time, but only on tester accounts. What do you think of its appearance? =)

It's nothing more than a modified KV-4 that has a rear mounted turret but is a fake/fantasy vehicle.

It's time to bring back all the old maps they took out, just the way they were.  No more of that special sauce editing they say they do to improve them but in reality makers them much worse.

It's no less "real" than the other KV-4s we have in-game -- they may not have ever been produced in metal, but all three (and many more) existed as design proposals historically. Can have a read on them here (recreated in 3D model form by Giganaut, based on each vehicle's blueprints): http://ftr.wot-news....sign-proposals/ and the Tanks Encyclopedia team is currently in the process of writing up some more detailed articles on each design: https://tanks-encycl...w2-soviet-kv-4/

 


 

Anyway, glad to see this one back -- was wondering if it'd ever get to see the light of day. :great:

This thing been around forever

there is YouTube footage of it by tester accounts 

since its rather lacklustre nowadays compared to design many years ago

……I guess they tried to fix shortcomings with Hitpts and 360 alpha

Any reason why the T54 "Heavy" tank's 120mm does 450 alpha as opposed to the 400 alpha on the M103, T95E6 and T110E5?

 

Also good job continuing to butcher real tanks that existed by making what is essentially a medium tank to a heavy. I guess the trend created to sell a more expensive premium tank by making it a heavy (M54 Renegade:sceptic:/T54E2) so they have to make the T54E1 a heavy too by senselessly slowing it down with no armour gain must continue. Idiotic.

 

So when is WG making the E-50/E-50M and Object 430U into a heavy?

 

And if WG is continuing to release more fantasy tanks, how about releasing the Valkyria Chronicle tanks already.

He's asking if it will be armored similar to Renegade/E5, or will have only 50-100mm of armor and be completely flat like the M-IV-Ys cupola.
