Hey all,

 

Would like to know about other tanks (not TDs or SPGs) above tier V or same tier with good alpha damage and decent penetration values.

 

Like O-I Exp (Tier V) with its 10 cm Cannon Type 14 (standard rounds) has 130 mm pen and 300 damage per shot. 

But on the other hand, true heavy tanks like KV-1 and KV-1S with its 122 mm "derp" gun (standard rounds) has only 61 mm pen + 450 Damage per shot!  

 

I have played TDs like Hetzer and Stug III (10,5 cm StuH 42 L/28), so they are great with some patience for reload. 

 

So if anyone else can share some information on this. :child:

 

Thanx.

So just to clarify you are asking about derp guns or after 2900 battles have you not worked out that AP is the best ammo option for the vast majority of guns in the game?

So your talking Normal NON Derp guns?

 

Like say the the Frenchy AMX ELC bis, 90mm with 240 Damage for 170 Pen?

I was looking for similar GUN characteristics like O-I Exp as I mentioned above! Which is not a "derp" GUN at all... but has decent pen values.. good damage, but slow reload! And to be on the cheaper side, I wud like to stick to Standard Ammo! .. 

 

In the mean time I found out the French Heavy Line (ignored it previously).. pretty much interesting. It seems they too have good pen values with decent damage!

Yeah exactly.. it doesn't need to have HUGE ALPHA DAMAGE! .. No need. But decent enough to stay alive longer in higher MM battles.

The issue may not be the guns you are using. It might be worth stick to the lower tiers for a while. After all it's not the guns which will the things keeping you alive.

I agree with you 100% .. and that's why I am sticking to Tier V for now! at-least for another 3K battles!

The KV-1 with either the 85mm or the 57mm can be very fun. The 85mm has good alpha and decent penetration, whilst the 57mm has better DPM and great premium ammo penetration. Same thing with the KV-1S.

Tier 6 has the KV-85 with the 122mm gun, and the ARL 44 with the 105mm gun.

Tier 7 has the IS, IS-2, or KV-3 with the 122mm gun.

Tier 8 has the VK100 with the 128mm gun, the T34, the Defender / 252U.
