With a tank as slow as the tortoise, with such a huge weak spot as the tortoise, there is no excuse for tier 7 and 8 tanks to be able to penetrate the front of the tortoise. I have had numerous tier 7 and 8 tanks snapshot me and penetrate me frontly.  Maybe just a few more extra mm of armor would balance this out.

Tier 7's and 8's are penning your tortoise's front plate? I have no problem with that..... most players just aim for the hatch, which is why I use clutch braking and wiggle, unless they keep tracking me. But with track mechanic, repairs, and toolbox, I'm not tracked for long.... and usually kill the enemy tank, cause the tortoise has good reload and aim time, with decent pen. Though that 3rd mark is being an elusive pain in the [edited].

Mmm, tortoise is riddle with weak spots, but it can work it you angle it which sounds odd, but on a right hand turn you can do pretty well around the corner just showing your gun and angled front. Tbh anything that can pen you from the front you can pen and DPM the hell outta them.

The Tortoise is a tough one, they've given it such a high dpm that it's very hard to try and make a case for a buff, even though the armour and speed is garbage and that RoF is all it has going for it.

The frontal armor needs some help.  The right bumper, right trigger "combo" is getting old.

you have 2000 hp at tier 9, highest dpm in game with great gun handling, and a huge gun traverse arc that you can literally peek around corners with. but yea, it totally needs an armor buff... /s
