So just looked on Tankopedia thinking i might choose to unlock the O-I as i have no Jap crew trainers, then found out it doesn't have the 15cm Howitzer.

"Hey you want a slow KV-2 without the derp cannon? Okay have this Kaiju" I guess i will get the Panther atleast that will look good gathering dust. 


I don't play anymore, just loiter around the forum from time to time.

It's looking like I just want the Lycan.

I'm going to be getting the O-I as well. 175mm pen and 300dmg. Seems good then a HEAT44 finds you or any other arty.

It still has the 100mm gun. Which is still decent alpha. Giving it the 150mm and the ability to make a profit firing 100% premium ammo would be overpowered.

Hell, even without it's pretty overpowered.

Looks good regardless of lack of derp.

 

But it's such a shame though isn't it? I mean we'll never see something like that in the tech tree will we?

I don't mind it not having a derp gun, it's got 150mm armor on the front and rear and 70mm on the sides, and that's at tier VI. Just angle the hull and you can take all day whittling down the red forces. Plus it's a Japanese premium that doesn't have crap armor, I'm all over it.

Basically an ARL 44 but a bit slower, so looks like there will be a stand off who is king between the ARL and this when it comes out; it's great 2-3 shotting every same tier tank while bouncing all their shots (accept the Water Buffalo that only goes 14km/h)

It won't be as unpennable as you think. I'm pretty sure the guns on something like a 30.01H, Chi-Nu-Kai, T67, etc will pen it, at least with apcr. A lot of tier 6s will manage too.

I would rather have 1 O-I in my garage, plus it would be nice to have a silver earner which is essentially a KV-2 with armor.

It's a very decent gun for what it is.

This thing is going to make me buy back mid-tier US artillery. 

I asked an EOD man how he dealt with the stress of his job. 

 

He said he didn’t have any stress. Either he was right or else it became someone else’s problem.

Bad turret and hull traverse and painful reload.  But, it is a Japanese premium and I like training at tier 5-6.  XP bonus looks meager at 30%, but since they are calling it a Kaiju, I'm pretty sure I have to try and get it.

 

In the pictures it seems like it might be huge!  Bigger than a TOG.

I'll probably buy Lycan and earn the Kaiju. Not interested in the other two.

Having put it side by side with a kv2 you can go hull down and look over the top of the kv2s turret.

Can you imagine a platoon of 3 of these tanks.if they are driven by at least semi cometetive players and no arty that is almost an auto win.

I'm not even going to start about a 5 man platoon of these

for O-I lovers, this actually means you can have BOTH versions of the O-I, the 100mm and the 152mm, in your garage at the same time!

 

It might kinda sorta be a good thing :ohmy:

Angling the hull of the O-I In essence makes it weaker, because it further exposes the only actual "weakspot" (a small spot besides the tracks that is invisible on the visual model, humorously) on the tank frontally on one side of the tank.

100 mm gun is not bad if we can swallow the fire rate and accuracy of the thing, but at tier 6/7, the only thing it fear is arty KV-2 and fast speedy medium and lights running circle at you...
That one bounced... WTF..not at 100m and not twice in a roll and not on the side of a Walfe-100 with a BL-10!!!

Hmm, not the 15cm? Text description is a bit bait and switch. Still probably get it for Japanese trainer.
