Two vehicles are coming to the Supertest today. The Charlemagne – British Tier VIII heavy tank and the K-91 Version II – Soviet Tier VIII medium tank.
The Charlemagne is equipped with a well-stabilized 120mm gun capable of causing 440 damage per shot. Both the standard and special ammo are AP shells that can penetrate 220 and 270 mm of enemy armor, respectively. Their drawback is a relatively low shell velocity (~600 m/s and ~900 m/s, respectively). The gun accuracy is 0.44, the aiming time is 3.2 s, the reload time is 16 s, and the view range is 380 m.
The vehicle’s durability is 1,500 HP. The frontal armor is quite sturdy: up to 170 mm on the turret and 130 mm on the hull. Considering the angles of the sloped armor plates, the overall frontal armor resembles that of a Tier IX vehicle. The vehicle, which has a specific power of 18 h.p./t, reaches speeds up to 42 km/h.
Thanks to the combination of dynamics and protection, the Charlemagne can both support heavy tanks and push the enemy line with allied medium vehicles. The gun depression angle is an incredible -10 degrees. In combination with the solid turret, the Charlemagne can take maximum advantage of any terrain. However, the gun handling is far from perfect, a fact that should be considered when choosing tactics.
This vehicle was previously part of a Supertest, but as a Tier IX tank. For the current testing iteration, it was rebalanced for Tier VIII, but its key features were kept: good dynamics, nice protection, and high firepower. The K-91 Version II is a classic medium tank designed for rapid attacks and dynamic combat.
Keep in mind that these are not the final stats.
