Hello again!
I am Luke and you're watching “Science of Victory”
You asked tons of questions after our heavy tanks episode and I can't leave them unanswered.
Many of you wrote that you manage win team battles using tanks we didn't recommend.
Well, I touched on it in that episode but I'll stress it again; any tier 8 can be used for Team Battles if you're good enough.
However, in a battle of equal skill, those tanks are usually superior for one reason or another.
Nevertheless, today we will talk about the tier 8 tanks we didn't cover in the previous episode as you requested it.
Sl1de from Na`Vi will be our consultant as usual.
The most comments were regarding the Soviet premium tank IS-6.
Many players claim that this tank is as good as the IS-3.
Is that so? – Let's see.
The mobility of the IS-6 is a little bit worse.
The hull armor is almost the same, but the IS-6's turret is pretty weak; though shells tend to bounce from it.
Let's also compare the guns: the one-shot damage is the same for IS-6 and IS-3,
the damage per minute is better for the IS-6 thanks to the higher damage per minute, and the aim time is the same - 3.4 seconds.
So far so good, but if you take a look at the other IS-6 parameters there is no reason for joy.
The tank's accuracy is low and the armor penetration of AP shells is 175 mm, the penetration of the APCR's are 217 mm.
These numbers are lower than those of ALL other tier 8 tanks.
In fact the IS-6's gun is like the tier 7 IS's just but with a higher damage per minute.
Enough with the numbers.
Let's see some real examples.
First of all the IS-6 can't tank normally, because of the low turret armor.
Well, if you're up against experienced players, anyway.
This can be well seen when face-hugging.
The IS-3 has no trouble penetrating the IS-6's mantlet but the premium tank has a hard time breaching the IS-3's armor.
The only option left is to shoot the top of the turret.
When in a long distance firefight the situation is even worse because of the low accuracy.
You can see that it's not easy to hit the enemy's weak spots.
Some tankers say that they can sidescrape better than any IS-3…
That is because many opponents just don't know how to penetrate this tank's armor.
You see a sidescraping IS-6?
Shoot at the front angled corner plate.
The shell will reach it at a good angle and will have an easy time penetrating.
If the opponent is looking straight at you – aim for the lower glacius or the driver's hatch.
I'm not saying that the IS-6 is bad and can't be used in team battles.
No! It's just clearly worse that the IS-3 in most situations and when two equal teams meet, this will matter.
Also note that a player who has Team Battle experience and knows the where to penetrate any armor won't be a burden to any team.
Besides, they'll be able to get more credits.
So it's for you to decide.
Now we shall move on.
Another heavy we didn't mention last time was the British Caernarvon.
This vehicle is pretty interesting – mobile, a great view range and good elevation angles.
The damage per minute is close to its competitors and the aiming time plus accuracy are THE BEST among the tier.
This tank is really good… for random battles!
Note that it's not as all-purpose as the IS-3 and is also less suited for team battles.
This is because of the two main faults of the Caernarvon – its low armor and a very low damage per shot.
The tank's turret can be easily penetrated from the sides and above the mantlet.
Plus, experienced players often shoot at the joining of the turret and the hull for easy penetration.
The lower glacius is also vulnerable and the side and rear armor of the Caernarvon outmatch only the paper-thin AMX 50 100.
You won't be able to sidescrape with it.
Not much to say about the damage.
The maximum is 283 and the average is 230.
This is just too low for Team Battles
Another tank we were asked to talk about is the FCM 50t.
This is the most mobile heavy of tier 8.
Even the AMX 50 100 isn't as mobile.
Plus the tank has good accuracy, fast aim and nice elevation angles.
To top it all off; the damage per minute is one of the best of the tier!
That said; the FCM 50t is too vulnerable for team battles.
Almost any shot will penetrate.
This along with a low damage per shot make the tank poorly suited for Team Battles.
Now we go back to the Soviet super-heavies: the KV-4 and KV-5.
There were numerous comments about how the armor compensates for its other faults.
Actually it can't hide these tanks' biggest weakness – its mobility.
Well… let me give you two simple examples.
Cliff. The opponents have a KV-4.
We send our heavies on a standard route.
And the 1390 boldly goes to the enemy's ledge.
Our light is in position whilst the KV-4 is still climbing up.
Our scout easily unloads his magazine.
This is about 1000 damage at the very beginning.
So from here, just keep it up and you're going to win.
Second example.
The enemy has a KV-5. Two of them, no less!
No matter.
The ninety scouts.
Now we know where the enemy tanks are and so we decide NOT TO shoot the KV at first.
We only shoot at the other targets, because the chance of penetration is much higher.
We rush in and focus down three tanks then hide behind the hill to reload.
Now we just finish them off.
As you can see even the best armor won't save your enemy from defeat if you act with skill and cunning.
The enemy will have even more difficulties on city maps, but that's only two maps out of eight.
Well, enough of the KVs for today.
Now we talk about the Chinese heavies.
Many say that they're better than the IS-3.
Let's review the details again.
The 112 has good turret armor and a high max speed, but the acceleration is not so impressive.
The main fault is the cannon, though.
The one shot damage, accuracy, aim time and armor penetration with APs is similar to the IS-6.
The premium shells seem to have better penetration, but the damage per minute is lower than that of the Soviet tank.
In fact, the 112 has HEAT shells.
As we mentioned last time, they have trouble dealing damage through tracks and they aren't normalized.
In addition; it has fuel tanks located in the front, so the tank is often set on fire by a frontal armor penetration.
Now, the 110 is a pretty balanced vehicle.
It is pretty similar to IS-3 in many aspects, but has worse acceleration.
The 110 is a pretty rare tank and most tankers don't know how to penetrate its armor.
This is a clear advantage.
At least until you have watched “Science of Victory”.
The 110 can be easily penetrated through the lower glacius and the commander's hatch.
If the enemy is sidescraping then shoot at the hull's side plate.
You have no guarantee of penetrating the driver's hatch though, so don't chance it.
Another thing that separates the 110 from the IS-3 is the cannon.
The 110's is actually a bit more accurate and aims faster, but the damage per shot is lower.
However; the damage per minute is 200 points higher thanks to the higher damage per minute.
Overall the tank is pretty good!
If you don't own an IS-3 then you can easily take part in team battles driving a 110.
Let's sum things up; we still think that the American T32, the IS-3 and the AMX 50 100 are the best choices for team battles,
but now you know more on why.
I guess this is all we have for today.
In the next episode we will talk about Tank Destroyers and even mention SPGs.
