After many questions in General Chat I thought a short video guide would help

no problem, I was getting a lot of questions so I thought it would be better to explain the basics that way.

 

Also for people who want the channel, I became eligible for a custom URL so you can also find it at http://www.youtube.com/c/BadTanking

Can I have some advice here please,

 

My WZ-111 is a TVIII HT, and in the garage, it shows a survive-ability icon (cube) under the first slot which has a gun rammer in it.

 

Does that mean the other 2 slots are dedicated to survive-ability and need to have equipment from the survive-ability section as well?

 

If not, as the other two slots show no icon, what equipment do I put in there?

 

Thanks.

The first slot is the priority slot that gives an advantage only to the equipment related to the type of tank.  In your case only equipment that is for Survivability will give a bonus in that slot.

 

The other two slots give no bonus and you are free to select any type of equipment to suit your playstyle, including ones that are suitable for the priority slot, ie. you could have two or even three equipment types from the same group if you thought that would suit your playstyle in that tank.

Another introductory-level guide to the equipment changes in v1.10 with reference to Medium Tanks and for tiers 6 to 10.

Once again, thanks mate for that.

So, does the CVS only become available from what tier?

And, why does it say that the slot and eqpt for slots 2 and 3 doesn't match? That threw me initially.

Also, is the CVS and radio eqpt only for Light scouts?

The message saying the equipment doesn't match the slot is when you have a equipment from a higher class than the tank needs.  This is common at the moment as most of the previous equipment had fewer classes so the one you have mounted now is more suited from a cost perspective on a higher tier tank.

 

Further to that, it does not change the benefit you get from it right now, but if you demount it you won't be able to put it back on that particular tank.  You can however move equipment from slot to slot simpy by drag and drop and that doesn't require demounting.  It is possible that all the 'non-matching' equipment will get automatically demounted in the next patch but I don't have a solid source for that yet.

 

If you are looking at a Tier 5 or below and the equipment is not matching, you have two choices.  You can demount it and use it on a higher tier tank that it does match, or if you have enough of that type of equipment for your higher tiers, you can sell it for 300k and from the sale price you can purchase one Class 2 at 200k and one Class 3 at 50k, so effectively equip two lower tier tanks instead of just one.

 

CVS is only available from Tier 8 and up it seems.

Low Noise Exhaust System can be used on all vehicle types, it just has different bonus depending on what type of vehicle it is used on.
