The Polish heavies’ Supertests are underway and today we’re ready to spill the beans on one more of these. The first heavy tank in the Polish branch, the Habich Ciężki (name not final) stands at Tier VII.
Tier VII is where the Polish mediums start to evolve into heavies. Like his bigger brothers, the Habich Ciężki has a gun with high alpha damage and excellent depression (-8°). At the same time it has a medium tank’s mobility: its specific power-to-weight ratio is 16.5 hp/ton. However a weakness is the armor which isn’t as solid as that of the top Poles. The turret is just well-protected against low-tier vehicles’ fire and the hull is even more vulnerable.
Its average armor prevents using this tank as a classical heavy. Its likely role on the battlefield is lending fire support to better protected allies. Think of it as of a high alpha gun that can be delivered to an advantageous position relatively fast.
Depending on the test outcome we may change this Habich Ciężki’s stats, so be sure to stay tuned and follow the news!
