The next vehicle for the new Czechoslovakian branch will soon be sent to Supertest: the TNH T Vz. 51 Tier IX heavy tank.
Just like other Tier VIII–X Czechoslovakian heavy tanks, its main feature is the ability to choose between two guns: one with a two-shell autoloader and one without. The top guns have the same caliber—122 mm. The damage per shot is 390 HP, the aiming time is 2.5 s, the standard armor-piercing shell penetrates 252 mm of armor, and the special APCR shell penetrates 294 mm. The cyclical gun has an accuracy of 0.36 and reloads in 10.2 s. The autoloader gun has a two-shell magazine with a loading time of 2.5 s between shells and a magazine reload time of 20 s. Its accuracy is 0.38. Both guns boast a 7-degree depression angle.
The survivability and mobility are typical for a heavy tank. In addition to the vehicle’s durability of 1,900 HP, the sloped armor and the screens at the front of the turret help it withstand enemy fire. The top speed is 50 km/h, the specific power is 14.4 h.p/t, and the view range is 380 m.
Similar to its “big brother”, the TNH T Vz. 51 allows players to choose which firing mode they are most comfortable with. Both the cyclical gun and the autoloader are intended to be equally effective. As for other vehicle characteristics, there are no obvious drawbacks. The generally balanced vehicle parameters enable the tank to deal with various battle tasks from defending a position to attacking the enemy base.
