Short version : shoot Heat lol

 

Soon enough these are going to be flooding the match maker and it's fool proof Russian armor is sure to confuse alot of people who aren't as informed as to how it works 

 

Let me explain. I looked over the revealed stats that they gave us. As far as the armor is concerned it's identical to the PC version. 

 

so let me start off by saying, on flat level ground. dead on. If you're in anything apart from a Tank destroyer or Artillery with AP your chances of penetrating the tank frontally is basically zero, and i don't mean that in a joking way. The hull is immune to standard shells from any light, medium or heavy tank Currently in game. 

 

Yes. It does have a cupola and it's the Only frontal weakspot you have to take advantage of. but it can be difficult to hit at range. 

 

You're best bet is to load HEAT / APCR and aim at the plate closest to you. If he angles aim at his shoulder plate. It's s curved surface so aim at the flattest part

 

Here is a side by side image of the tank VS different ammo types 

as you can clearly see. Against standard the entire front is dark red meaning no chance of a penetration. 

 

While heat turns the Armor bright green. the lighter the color the easier it will be to penetrate. 

 

I would of clicked on the armor to show the exact thickness but the text box covers up the entire screen 

 

It's effective armor is around 323mm against HEAT, so 330-350 heat pen is needed to reliably punch through it.

 

Hope this helps. Be sure to take advantage of the cupola! And fire heat at them :) ...oh..and they nerfed the 279es DPM by a ton! From a 10.5 second reload to 12.7 something :) meaning it has worse dpm than is-4, so don't be afraid of them! 

 

Good luck!

If he's using all of his gun depression his upper plate effectively becomes immune to even 350 heat pen. so do bare that in mind!

It has even worse traverse that the PC version. So it you can't flank it, probably you aren't as good as you believe, as it should be easier to flank than an E4 and way, way softer in the sides and rear. 

Some might say i'm not constructive enough... Too bad i'm actually a deconstructivist

Image result for stalin gif

 

Giving away Russian secrets has attracted the vengeful spirit of Stalin. 

 

 

I'm thinking this tank will be one to angle with and use bits of cover to peak around while making it harder for enemies to shoot you. Sitting and taking fire is just asking for enemies to switch to premium rounds and start tagging you. 


If I only had a Baneblade....

183mm HESH will do just nicely.

I'm not sure that image is accurate, just as an FYI. 268 Pen will go through the front, not reliably but certainly not a  0% chance. :honoring:

is that 268 Penn with 25% rng?   So 335 realistically if you get a high roll.:teethhappy:

Early January is going to be a great time to play a tier X TD - so many hit points available in  OBJ279e drivers rolling out who don’t know how to play tier X’s and think they are invincible in this thing!

 

... rude shock awaits.

Most players don’t have a clue how to play any tier let alone tier X. They’ll likely never have that “rude awakening” and just claim you are hacking...

True!  However, given the accessibility of this op, I suspect there will be loads of folk who’s first tier X will be this thing, making things even worse from a team / gameplay perspective!

There is also a greater than 0% chance that every time you touch a wall your hand will phase right through it. I’m not banking on that happening either.

I'm speaking from a practical perspective

 

I know it's technically possible even if it's like 5% chance in my eyes it might as well be zero

In this case it ranges from 0% to 6%. Certainly not even worth mentioning :P

 

If my my chance to pen is less than 50% as far as I'm concerned I'm not going to waste my time with standard when heat can give me a much higher chance :p
