from playing the short amount of matches ( and mostly dieing doing nothing due having problems penning anything even firing premium or everyone penning me with little issue).

i am kinda done with this tank.

----------------------------

the main thing i noticed is this tank is just a flattened Tiger II that gave up everything to increase the upper plate thickness (due to angle)

the armor thickness on the hull are exactly the same as the Tiger II, but just with more extreme angles and is like 50% wider than the Tiger II.

---------------------------

in terms of turret armor on the brick, it actually has one of the best gun mantlets in the game. from how it looks it is heavy layered. too bad the rest of the turret has awful armor.

Brick:

Turret: 150/150/100

Hull: 150/80/80

Tiger II:

Turret: 185/80/80

Hull: 150/80/80

--------------------------

other than the armor the huge thing that lets this tank down is the insanely awful gun that this tank gets. like, the Tiger I's top 88mm would be 1000% better than this gun in every situation.

but, unlike the Brick, the Tiger II has a fantastic 105mm.

Brick: 100 mm LB-1

Rate of Fire: 7.23            Aim Time: 2.90s

Penetration: 190/247/50     Accuracy: 0.38

Damage: 250/250/330

Tiger I: 8,8 cm Kw.K. 43 L/71

Rate of Fire: 8.96           Aim Time: 2.70s

Penetration: 203/237/44   Accuracy: 0.34

Damage: 240/240/295

Tiger II: 10,5 cm Kw.K. L/68

Rate of Fire: 5.77          Aim Time: 2.30s

Penetration: 225/285/60  Accuracy: 0.31

Damage: 320/320/420

--------------------------

the Mobility is also awful on the Brick, Premium Gasoline does help A LOT with the mobility. the Brick and Tiger II weigh very similar and have comparable engine power. yet the Tiger II fells 100x more mobile.

Brick:

Engine power: 810     Weight: 68,544 KG (68.5 Metric Tons)

Power to Weight: 11.82hpt    Terrain Resistances: 1.2 / 1.7 / 2.7

Top Speed: 40kph          Reverse Top Speed: 15kph

Rotation Speed: 24deg/s

Tiger II:

Engine Power: 870   Weight: 70,388 KG (70.4 Metric Tons)

Power to Weight: 12.36hpt   Terrain Resistances: 1 / 1.2 / 2.3

Top Speed: 38kph       Reverse Top Speed: 12kph

Rotation Speed:  28deg/s

-------------------------------------

the Tiger II, it's reskins and the Lowe  are superior in every way to the Brick.

the Tiger II and Lowe can be Very Flexable thanks to their accuracy and armor, they will also make A LOT more silver compared to the brick since they have Penetration, Accuracy, Flexibility and just better Bonuses. (King Tiger & Captured King Tiger Silver Bonus: 60%)( Lowe Silver Bonus: 65%) (Brick: 50%)

even though the brick has cheaper ammo by about 300 VS 1k silver costs, the overall gun on the Brick ruins it's silver making ability.

---------------------------------------

overall: i would say if you are already willing to spend money on buying a brick, dont. instead get either a Lowe, King Tiger or maybe even a Captured King Tiger. these all are just flat out better than the Brick in every way and are Fantastic silver makers. if you are wanting a Brick because you need a Mercenary premium, Get a Boulder or Absolution instead. those will be 1000x better at being a crew trainer and silver maker.

---------------------------------------

here are some Comparisons of the Brick's armor layout and Comparisons to the Tiger II. 

Super thick gun mantlet.

Turret Cheeks

Upper Plate Comparison to Tiger II

Brick lower plate size and angle thickness comparison to Tiger II

 

Thank you for reading my final thoughts on the brick!

i hope they were useful.
