Just had some fun in the ELC

They didn't have arti.. so when things started to thin I went on straffing runs... before I knew it I was the only guy left.

Around the city blocks I'd go.. and shoot.. kept lapping different blocks and blasting them as I flew by

My entire team was cheering me on in the chat
The other team kept calling "hack!" as bullets would wiz over me

28K on a defeat - 5 kills

The better I get with it the more fun it is... I need to get it to elite status and then put the research in the crew

I managed a good round with the ELC last weekend. A great 'fun' tank...

I damn near got called a hacker again last night. I was sandbagging in my T40 and 3 shot a Hetzer from about 250 meters (across the lake bed on Mountain Pass). He was bitching because I didn't show up when I shot. Let's see...2nd best native camo TD at Tier 4, under a camo net, in a bush, with a 94% camo skill crew. Sorry Noob, you lose..... In the same battle, I also taught an AMX 40 that he's vulnerable when trying to crest a hill when I'm sitting on the other side. Amazing how they don't realize how thin their belly armor is.

I thought that all the tanks on WoT have really thin belly armor, or is that incorrect?

On a side note, the past few nights we have had some Platooning going on, it has been alot of fun to work with you all.

I finally got a sniper bonus last night in my SU85b, grinding that one out to either the SU85 or 100, not sure which one I'm going to quit at yet. I can't see going very high in the TD lines. Tier 5-8 seems to be the most fun to play.

Have the day off, just updated and bought myself a TOG2

Oh my god. I didn't think they could make a slower tank than the Churchill, but it's a friggin beast. 12-15 kph, good rate of fire, enough damage, and 1400 hp. Thing's like a steel wall auto-award.

My first battle, did 1300 damage on 2 targets, no kills, and came home with 16,000 silver after the defeat and consumables, including some gold round (paid for in silver).

Also, it make an awesome piece of cover for smaller tanks, this thing is huuuuge.

17 pounder.

12 rds/min, average damage 150/150/190, average pen 171/239/38

Good enough turret rate, I have the gun laying drive on it and the aim circle tightens up reeeeal fast, which is nice.

You can hide a church and a lee behind it - so its greatest strength may be in the provision of cover.
