Another British tank is about to roll onto the Supertest. This time it’s the Valiant, a Tier V medium. But is it as valiant as its name suggests? The Supertest will show!
Technically, the vehicle is an evolution of another British tank, the Valentine. The improvements were made in two areas: armor protection and firepower. As a result, the Valiant’s front and side armor is up to 114 mm, while its hit points amount to 800. As for the firepower, it was taken up a notch, too: its alpha is 110 points while the reload time is 3.9 s. The dispersion and the aiming time are 0.41 at 100 m and 2.3 seconds, respectively. While armor penetration with a standard AP shell is 91 mm and a special APCR round will pierce armor 144 mm thick.
The rest of its characteristics are quite mediocre, with a view range of 340 m, maximum speed of 19 km/h, and a power to weight ratio of 7.7 hp/tonne.
Summing up, the Valiant boasts a rapid-firing gun and armor protection that is decent for its tier. Conversely, mobility and dynamics are the vehicle’s downsides. Given these characteristics, the tank is good at supporting allies in breaking through enemy defense while inflicting much damage thanks to its gun.
