Supertest: M4A2 T-34, Matilda LVT, Pz.Kpfw. M15, Pz.Kpfw. 35 R (Initial Stats)

Four new low tier vehicles are on their way to the Supertest:

The M4A2 T-34 is a Tier V Soviet medium tank.

It is equipped with a powerful 85 mm gun that causes 160 damage per shot. Its standard AP shell penetrates 150 mm on average, while the average penetration of its special APCR shell is 196 mm. The gun has an accuracy of 0.38, aiming time of 2.7 s, and reload time of 6 s, making this tank’s role clear: dealing damage.
The vehicle’s durability is 630 HP. The thickness of the frontal armor plate reaches up to 63.5 mm and the frontal projection of the turret up to 52 mm. Its engine power is 420 h.p. and has a top speed of 52 km/h. The view range is 350 m.

The Matilda LVT is a Tier IV British medium tank.

The vehicle also has a decent 75 mm gun. Its standard AP shell penetrates 91 mm on average, while the average penetration of its special APCR shell is 144 mm. It has a damage per shot of 110 HP, an accuracy of 0.43, and an aiming time of 1.7 s. Its engine power is 190 h.p., has a power-to-weight ratio of 8 h.p./t, and can reach a top speed of 24 km/h. Considering its sub-par mobility but excellent gun, this tank is best played at long range where it can realize its firing potential.

The Pz.Kpfw. M15 is a Tier III German light tank.

It is equipped with a 37 mm gun. Its damage per shot is 40 HP, and it can penetrate armor up to 42 mm with a standard AP shell and up to 74 mm with a special APCR shell. The gun has an accuracy of 0.41, a loading time of 2.3 s, and an aiming time of 1.7 s. The engine power is 250 h.p., with a power-to-weight ratio of 16 h.p./t, and it can reach a top speed of 40 km/h.

The Pz.Kpfw. 35 R is a Tier II German light tank.

Its damage per shot is 55 HP, and it can penetrate armor up to 50 mm with a standard AP shell and up to 78 mm with a special AP shell. The gun has an accuracy of 0.48, a loading time of 2.8 s, and an aiming time of 2.8 s. The engine power is 82 h.p., with a power-to-weight ratio of 7.7 h.p./t, and can reach a top speed of 23 km/h.

Let us know what do you think about those new additions in the comments below.

Keep in mind that stats are not final and may change on the supertest.

  1. Historical background for all of these? Or just a curious picture from their time where it’s featured on a railway flatbed wagon in blurry background?
    I somewhat remember the Italian one and the Renault R-35 with the T-26 turret (Romanian project), but nothing at all about the first two…

    1. facts about Matilda LVT:
      » the “M8A1” (true designation 75mm GMC T29) was a single prototype that was cancelled because the T70/M18 Hellcat was better
      » the same turret+gun configuration was not mounted on any LVT variant
      » the British Army did operate the LVT(A)-4 that was equipped with the original turret (M8 Scott turret with 75mm howitzer)

      questions:
      » did the British have spare 75mm M3 cannons?
      » why would they remove the turrets from the LVT’s when they had other LVT variants without them?

      I know that the British, like pretty much everyone else, liked the HE capabilities of the 75mm M3 cannon (Sherman), however they never even seriously pursued mounting M3’s on their more “modern” Infantry Tanks (Churchill or Valentine), how would they come up with the idea of doing so for the Matilda that was well known to be limited in terms of turret ring width?

      it MIGHT be real but if so I would really enjoy reading about how such unlikely match came to be

      1. May I present to you: Xmas 2021 lootbox drop fillers! So that we spend more while gambling for that new Tier 9 lootbox exclusive premium!!

  2. Who the fuck plays tier 1 to 5?
    Apart from useless seal clubbers like AmphetamineLogic or Unhappy_bunny?

    1. People who enjoy their gameplays and the designs? That’s a low move from you to stick a sealclubber seal on anyone not thinking the same way you do… Besides, what’s the point of naming-shaming players right here? You ought to open up your mind a bit.

        1. Perhaps, he is like me and just likes to play low tier, because it isn’t stressful. Just because I like to play low tier a bit, doesn’t mean I play evil artillery.

  3. well, I do and I enjoy my T-34 and also my T67. Would even more enjoy it, if there were less newbie players (to not scare them off). but tiers 4 and 5 have plenty of interesting tanks. only the MM and the playerbase prevent me from playing there even more.

    for the news:why on earth does the M4-T-34 hybrid need a 85mm, that is (beside dpm and gunhandling) even better than on the T-34-85? more pen one tier lower? even many tier 5 TDs do have less pen!

    on the other hand: 3.5 deg gdp are … aweful, to put it mildly.

    1. «why on earth does the M4-T-34 hybrid need a 85mm»

      because Russia, do you need any other reason for that?

      I can bet with anyone that the remaining up-gunned Sherman Variants – which will eventually be added because WG KNOWS players have talked about them for a LONG, LONG time, those will win them quite a few $$$$ – won’t be anywhere lower than Tier 6, the Sherman 90 will likely be Tier 7 with a gun only slightly better than that (160mm pen vs 150mm)

      why?
      because they will not be part of the Soviet TT

    1. yeah, pretty much everyone knows, it was the prototype for the “Super Sherman” built by Israel, those are what the French called Sherman Amelioré/Revalorisé

      for the stubborn:
      please don’t argue about it anymore, it is a known fact Israel sent engineers to France to examine the conversion, same happened later with the 105mm version

  4. Proably the stuff that is going on the loot boxes at the end of the year ……… maybe the tier 5 or 4 as the reward for year playing on the next year

  5. These look bad, and not only because their stats are trash.

    Last year it was possible to gain some decent extra gold by having the padding tanks from the holiday loot boxes (duplicates were converted in gold), I bet WG did not like it and these funky things are here specifically to be loot padding people won’t be able to avoid.

  6. The Italian is the normal tank in german usage, but the French Renault is fitted with a russki T26 turret.

    1. Germans also had captured both French and Soviet tanks. In your words, “normal tanks in German use” too. It doesn’t mean they equipped Italian tanks with Czech turrets or French tanks with russkie turrets. Russkies did not fit their lend-lease Shermans with T-34 turrets. Nor did British fit their Matildas with lend-lease M10 turrets. All these frankentanks are pure unhistorical fiction. Which means they fit perfectly in the World of Fake Tanks.

      1. The French tank with a Soviet turret is real. Romania and Germany each made 1 such conversion. In addition to Romania putting Soviet guns in the existing French turrets on 30 tanks.

        “Frankentanks” were actually not an usual way to try to upgrade obsolete tanks.

  7. Finland used German tanks but where are they? Guess Russia doesn’t want them in the game 😏

    1. There are already at least 10 or even more (lazy to count them all) tanks in WOT ranging from low tiers to Tier10, which are similar frankensteins, so STRV K or these ones are nothing innovative in this area. There’s even few of the Franken-Shermans already in the game.
