WoT Supertest- M18 (90)

Commanders!

Half of autumn is over, but for the M18 (90), an American Tier VII tank destroyer, everything is just about to begin. Let’s see whether it has chances to succeed in Supertest!

In a nutshell, it’s a Hellcat but moved to Tier VII. It’s 90mm gun causes 240 points of damage on average. A standard AP shells penetrates 167 mm of enemy armor, while a special APCR goes further and will make a dent in the opposing vehicle 203 mm deep. The dispersion and aiming time are quite satisfying and make 0.35 at 100 m and 1.7, respectively. As for the view range it is 370 m.

Let’s touch upon its survivability, because regardless of how good you are at firing, what matters is whether you are good at surviving or not. So, to keep your 800 hit points intact, you will have to excel at the art of positioning as, let’s face it, the vehicle has cardboard-thick armor reaching up to 12 mm in the hull and up to 127 mm in the turret. However, the TD’s mobility makes up for its lame armor easily, with a max speed reaching 72 km/h and a power-to-weight ratio of 23.5 hp/t.

 

Summing up, the М18 (90) provides for a familiar gameplay typical of a dynamic TD that’s at its best when used in the ambush role. To make the best of this American, take the most advantageous position (the TD can do it quickly) and then keep adapting yourself to the situation and follow the allies while supporting them at a distance.

  1. Hm i like glass canons sometimes. The high top speed is what i like about it, even if its just straight line. The HP/ton should help with that uhmmm….

    Now, can we have the Panther II top engine back, please?

  2. Just give the M47 Patton on italy. It was also used in USA, France, Japan(for research), West Germany. It means WG can easily make 5 countries Premium tank at once.

    1. but which M47?
      the one with the 90mm?
      used by all those countries
      or
      the upgraded ones with 105mm guns?
      at least 5 different modifications, France, Spain, Italy, Iran and Israel, all with different 105mm guns
      AMX-30’s 105mm, Rheinmetall Rh-105 (I believe its performance is quite similar to the 105mm L7), OTO 105/55, some kind of 105mm gun and the 105mm M68 (respectively for each crountry listed above)

    2. Thing about the M47 is that its gun depression would be Soviet levels of bad. I’m not sure how popular it would be.

  3. The original hellcat 1 tier lower has an extra 40mm pen on its prem round… Is this a joke or what?

  4. WG drunk?

    Hellcat at tier 6 has premium shell with over 240 pen
    And this tier 7 only has bit over 200

    What a joke.

  5. You know, it would be nice if WG made INTERESTING premiums that are actually fun to play without being OP, not this copypaste garbage or broken reward shit.

    … guess I\’m asking too much yes? 🙁

  6. WG drinking to much Russian Vodka at breakfast here I think

    The T6 hellcat in the USA tech tree is better and it DOES not cost Premium Shop Gold

    only WG can make up this complete garbage and try to pretend its good (its crap WG btw

  7. Maybe WG plan on removing the 90mm on the tech tree variant. Not the first time this has happened (remove a gun from a tech tre tank and sell it as a premium with that gun) remember the T-28 with the KV 1 top gun? Now it\’s a premium, T-28 F30.
