I'm inspired!  I'll start running the Arnie right after breakfast!

Iron Arnie.  I don't really pay attention to new tanks anymore.  But pretty much every game I see an Iron Arnie in, it's drive straight into enemy fire with zero concerns.  I just had a standoff with one in my tier 10 T110e3.  Just bouncing shells.  Yeah, if you are close enough, you can aim for the cupola.  It's think it's the lowest skill tank I've ever seen.  And they gave it 320 alpha with a bonus of 300 pen on it's heat rounds.  And it's a "medium".  Absolutely the tank for clowns.  I just decided that I am going to trade my tier 10 US arty for the tier 8 M40/43 and I will focus every Arnie that I see.  Just like I used to do at tier 10 vs the Obj 279 and the Chieftain.  It's so ridiculous.  I actually just made the M40/43 my new favorite tank.

The iron arnie is the definition of powercreep it does everyrhig better than a t26e4 which wasn't that great but the other has tier x armor better pen than some tier ix tanks and has spaced armor while having better base armor than most heavys of its tier oh i almost forgot that it has a bigger gun so it will outrade other mediums with ease this tank is from the same kind as the italian tds, vipera, defender, bz 176, t110e3 and 279e that honestly are noob tanks because of the insane armor, low speed ,sick pen (some).

Iron Arni is more of a heavy to me and its not a problem. You can pen its cupola pretty easy when you hit it. BZ-176 on the other hand has ruined Tier 8 game play. Especially when you see 3x BZ-176's on enemy Team and here you are with 1-3 Heavy tanks on your team that are kinda stock being grinded by players. I will never understand WarGaming doing this that ruins game play like having rocket boosting derp machines and soon to come "Experimental Equipment" that will extremely over power already overpowered Tanks. Good job WarGaming, everywhere i look its Autoloaders and Overpowered special Tanks. Imagine being a new player on World of Tanks having to grind up a line and having to face our Special overpowered vehicles that have experimental equipment that has 2 equipment into 1 in 2 slots with a regular 1 in 3rd. Thats like running 5 Equipments. BRAVO WARGAMING i****s!

What you missed in your commentary here is that Iron Arnie probably should be a little better than the Super Pershing because it can face tier 10 tanks.

T26E4 doesn't face tier 10s unless it platoons with a tank that doesn't have the same limited matchmaking,

 

Throwing this here just as a memory refresher of those tanks with limited matchmaking:  https://worldoftanks.com/en/tankopedia/collections/premiums-limited-matchmaking/

But still the t26e4 is much worse against tier 9 than the iron vs 10s in my opinion it has like 50 more gold pen and another level of armor, the pershing will struggle a lot against t95s, e75s and tortoises while the arnie can pen with relative ease a tier x heavy weakspot and just crapon the t95 lower plate
