What WG sneak peek about the Japanese super heavy tanks are you talking about? Is it like some old video?


Tiers 2-4 are paper heavy tanks, all you have is more HP for other tanks to farm on.


Mount the 150mm howitzers on the O-I and O-Ni. Load and fire nothing but HE. You'll barely find any use for the AP or HEAT.


Just hit an enemy tank anywhere and you'll do damage. Center mass on most light tanks, medium tanks and TDs will deal a lot damage and module damage. Long range sniping isn't ideal but isn't impossible (within 300m), it may take some time to get used to the shell travel time and expect the gun to miss occasionally. When dealing with heavier tanks, avoid aiming for the thickest front, and go for the tracks to disable them for your allies, or the top of their turret/gun to splash and deal some module damage.


Keep the tank at mid-range, and have allies nearby to support you since it's very easy for nimbler tanks to get close and circle you and avoid your gun when up close, though you can push them up against a rock or wall and pin them but can be difficult.

Avoid open spaces.


The armor is thick but not invulnerable, can be defeated by higher tiers and tank destroyers and HEAT rounds; the overall profile is a huge target for flank shots and artillery. Mount a spall liner.


The O-Ni has some awkward gun angles from the front due to the mini-turrets at the front of the tank.

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

Dont go alone, dont be a hero, be a support tank for other heavy tanks as your armor is considerablely weak at these two tier. The front of O-I and O-Ni is full of weakspots which other tanks dont need a gold round to penetrate. Put the damned howitzer and derp.

They destroyed this line with their "re-balancing" nonsense... I stopped playing the line at the O-I.. I have the O-Ni unlocked but I won;t bother with 

a trashed line like this anymore.
