WZ-111 5A: Complete Stats & More Details

This is apparently an old tank, tested in ST 4 years ago, then afterwards in the first iteration of the 8.2 Common Test in November 2012. This tank was supposed to be the a tier 10 in a regular Chinese Tree branch, then it was scrapped for being too OP. Nowadays it has returned, with some stats changed and with the model made in HD. Certain is that I cannot make any assumptions on the future of this tank. At the moment, it is NOT a premium. The future might hold surprises though. It can even be an 113 replacement.

Other details:

-It has a crew of 4 people.
-Prototype heavy tank developed in the early 60s. The 111 project was developed on the basis of the design of IS-2 and IS-3 Soviet tanks as an analogue of the T-10. From the remaining project options, the 111 had enhanced frontal armor. Development was discontinued in 1964.

  1. well, I was amazed by the DPM and the gun depression, too. but the pen might be a little low for a tier 10 HT. at least compared to other HTs like T110E5 and other with the 120mm guns (or russian M62). even the 130mm gun on IS-7 has 250mm of AP-pen. only E100 with 15cm gun has less (and Maus with 12,8).

    so it’s either WGs way of trying to lower pen for new tanks or subject of change.

    but -10 degrees is totally arkward for the chines line (be it MTs, LTs or HTs). weird thing …


  2. i hope they do a t62a and object 140 thing so we have 2 options unless they somehow get another heavy tank line from the chinese.


  3. I can’t be the only one seeing that if it goes live with the current stats then it will be even more broken/OP than the Maus…


  4. This tank use 130mm gun .Ridiculous, none of four WZ111 (WZ111, WZ111T, 111 1-4, this) in WOT has the historical gun (60-122).


  5. This tank is pretty solid and all, but I don’t understand why it is OP as WG said ?
    The upper plate is really good, but not as trolling as 113.
    The lower plate is not that strong, and can be (almost) auto-penned by anything with 220+ pen.
    The turret is not invincible like IS-7 because of commander port.
    Enlightened me if I’m wrong ?
