Supertest: T-44-85M

New tier 8 premium. The model is old – I think WG stashed it until now. Maybe they can bring us that lost Japanese tier 3 premium too?

Work on the vehicle began in 1943. After conducting trials of the first prototype a number of changes were introduced. The first reference copy of the T44-A was completed in August 1944. It went for further testing. This version of the vehicle did not come into mass production, the next model being produced instead.

        1. Type 59 in these days are not so good as everybody dreaming, I have it 🙂 the gun handling is really bad when you compare with other Tier 8 mediums. The best thing it has pref MM and some armor. Super Persh now is much more better.

  1. Well, at least they gave it better pen and absurd mobility to compensate. When I heard T-44-85 at tier 8, I was worried the pen was still going to be as horrible as the old one’s. Might not be half bad, who knows.

    Also, side-note: I can’t access The Armored Patrol site on my desktop for some reason. I can only access it through the WordPress reader feed or my phone. I get this error message when attempting to view it on my desktop:

          1. Yeah, I’ll probably just stick to reading the feed. Can’t really change my antivirus. 😛 And it works on my phone still, so that works.

            Weirdly, I have the same antivirus/browser/settings/etc. on my laptop, and I can see it just fine, but on my desktop, it doesn’t want to work.

  2. Instead of releasing it as a decent tier 7, they overbuff the stats and shove it to tier 8, where we already have T-44-100 to do pretty much the exact same things.

  3. Didn’t they proclaim in the recent Dev Talk video that they themselves wanted LESS Soviet clone tanks? So then who the fuck is working/developing this thing?

    Some dev hiding in ‘a’ broom closet?

    1. Everything they ever said is meaningless. I remember a time when talks about T10 light tanks were drowned in “Fuck no notevernever”s by the Devs for example.

  4. Well then :/
    T-44-100 is an amazing tank because it found the right balance between armor/firepower/mobility. The gun has enough pen and accuracy to deal with tier X, mobility is good enough to flank and circle, and it has enough armor for lucky bounces.

    Well this T-44-85 just took everything to the extremes. Less firepower, less armor, more speed.
    It’s worse than T-54lw in every aspect (but this tank is OP and needs nerf so…) and T-44-100 is only worse in mobility and not by much.

    It would make a good tier 7. Not tier 8m

  5. The tier 7 one was called T-44-85, no M.
    Even still, this armor looks terrible and 85mm gun is a bit shite considering the 20 pdr on brits gets 220+ pen. Model is old and non-HD, too so its obv. not whatever this tank is meant to be.

  7. You know, instead the premium clones of existing tank, they should’ve really give us a brand new premium.
    Soviet TD like ASU-57 and ASU-85 is yet to be implemented. If they can’t make it as regular vehicle, make it premium like Scorpion (US) or KanonenJgPz.
    These new waves of clone premiums being tested really worrying.

  8. there stats… why dont they give it ´light tank´ status, it would make much more sense… and they already did that with swedish mediums – they made them TDs despite them being mediums (or MBTs?) IRL

  9. what!
    a Tier 7 gun on a Tier 8 Premium Medium Tank that “will” see Tier 10 tanks?

    really? you serious? is a joke yes?
    if no! its real really yes its true ~
    then ROLF and lol, any fool that pays for this with there credit cards deserves everything bad that happens to them at T9 and T9 why would ANYONE buy this crap?

    will struggle at T8 unless it gets Premium MM and at Tier 7, so only +1 MM
