Training Room Scenario: Bumper Cars Anyone?

Scenario: Mines as map, extended time, ammo less tanks. Tier 5 Medium Tanks: Single instance of each medium tank type fully upgraded, no spall liners.  Evenly matched teams and tank numbers.

 

Thus Ramming Speed...

 

Its all about that tank, the driver, and strategy. Team strategy may play a part.

 

Who wins? Which Tank? How? Debate it.

Sadly, this. Excluding 5/4s, the 3/4 would be great for high speed impacts.

Does the weight of the Sherman make a bigger differance than the speed of the 3/4. Only 7kph slower but about 6 tons heavier.

 

Btw, fun idea! Look forward to seeing the results.

True, but speed matters more than weight in ramming, afterall, that's why a full-speed E50M can technically do more damage than a full speed KV-5.

What about 15 KV5s, E100s, and Waffles having to try to ram a Maus to death in Westfield?

ELC AMX!

Why not 15 leo ones? I bet the maus won't hit below half it's HP.

I've had an scenario of this case the outcome was quite amusing we both survived however he ended up perched on top of my tank and had a team mate not killed the elc then I would have died as I was losing hp while he was on top of me..


Why yes of course....

Tier 5 Bumper Cars?

 

COUNT ME IN!

 

Obviously the 5/4 is the best choice, but maybe exclude that?

I'd roll in with either my T-34 or the M4 Sherman

We call that a Demolition Derby.  Sounds like fun!  No ammo, just the tanks bashing it out.

If you want to be one of the 47 Ronin check out our recruitment post and then send a message to Prof935 (xbox) or dimka935 (ps4).

I'm in if you want to invite me. Quick list of my Tier 5 tanks:

M4, M7, AT2, Leopard Light Tank, ELC-AMX, BDR G1 B, SU-85, S35 CA, Pz IV and III/IV, Chi Nu.

Extend to tier VI and the only tank I no longer have at tier VI is the Hellcat, the rest of the tanks on my player profile at tier VI are still in my garage.

    In demo derby you avoid hits and give hits at the point where it hurts you least.  To a certain extent this is about how much you damage yourself.  I'm curious if the ramming physics take into account where the hit occurs against what armor. 

 

Tier 5 fastest might be deadliest to oneself but boy can they avoid and pick their shots.

 

If armor, weight, speed, vulnerability then combine an all round tank like the T-34 (Tier 5 medium) might be best.

 

    With the size of the map (may be too big considering demo derby)  this would devolve into pack hunting culling one from the red herd and ganging up for the kill.  This may be more of a team strategy scenario than a physics adventure.  

 

It would take team cooperation for this to work.  A bunch of randoms would seek a camp en mass or hide strategy.

 

Depending on your perspective though red or green team always wins.   Multiple tanks might be left.

Why not limit it to the open field in the middle of himmelsdorf?
