Hi All;

 

Having trouble trying to block 2x my HP (Union honors requirement)

I can't seem to do it in HTs as gold spam n frontline nature plus arty menace...... only managed it twice using my su 101 cos it has small HP pool and much easier to block shells at a distance.

What mid tier non prem Rus/CHN tanks can do it? (I dun have some of the tier IX and Xs yet)

    I still think it's morally wrong so in fact I'm right.

Hrmm mid tier. As in tier 6 and 7?

 

The T150 might do it. The KV2 is probably a little too soft, but might do it.

 

At tier 7, The IS will struggle but you might get a good game.

 

At tier 8, the IS3 might do it. The KV4 is probs your best bet.

IS-M, bait your side from long range, make it seems overangled. Give them a pen or two to make sure they keep shooting.

They are rage, brutal without mercy. But you, you will be worse. Rip and tear until it is done.

Forgot about that one - I'd back this up. The IS-M at tier or lower would def do it.

IS-M can sidescrape much better than 705, even in tier 9 game :D

Looks like might have to start the KV line, the split to tier 7 SPG might come in handy for the SPG missions.

I have ISM researched but not a priority atm, unless a discounts kicks in.

KV-13 could be a contender when top tier, it can be surprisingly bouncy.

Is4 is my go to for pretty much any blocking mission. Pubbies aren't used to it.

Turret.

 

Btw even T29/T34/T30 turret cheeks is considered weakspot nowadays. Just fire something with 300mm pen at it.

Even 705 turret are weakspot considering gold round at that tier range, so IS-M still have the advantage of lower hp :D

I see you have an Alpine Tiger, I know you said non-Prem but you could try that - it has bouncy turret, although not as good as IS-3/IS-M, but it has Pref MM so better chance of being top-tier.

i did mine in the 112, but it took me 2 days to actually complete it.

 

Why? map dependent and also when pubbies realise they can't penetrate their shots they will ignore you or spam HE at you. I completed that mission mostly because in the situations i was faced was against 1v4 or holding up a flank alone entirely

 

Also an worthy mention is the su100m

have u tried ST-I? it has surprisingly good side armor and u can bait people into shooting ur overangled sides. im pretty sure i did 3xHP block mission for the first set of missions like 3 or 4 times while grinding towards the IS-4. IS-4 has decently good side too, but it wont help cuz of the increasing no. of derp guns at tier 10, and u expect much better players at tier 10 who would rather not shoot at u than waste a shell on that spaced armor
