Soon, the M-IV-Y, a Tier VIII American heavy tank and the first of the Yoh Company line, will be coming to the Supertest.
This is a Premium representative of the branch in the U.S. Tech Tree: vehicles that feature the new reserve track mechanic. Starting from Tier VII, these vehicles have an additional track attached to the main one. This allows the vehicles of the Yoh branch to continue moving (although with a speed penalty) even if both main tracks are destroyed.
This Tier VIII Premium vehicle is armed with a 105 mm gun that can cause 360 points of damage per shot. The penetration value of the main AP shell is 218 mm, and the penetration value of the special APCR shell is 247 mm. The aiming time is 2.5 s, and the gun dispersion is 0.4 m. The reload time is 11.3 s.
The thickness of the frontal armoring reaches 279 mm in the turret and 177 mm in the hull, but don’t forget about the rational angles and the turret shape, which add to the overall protection of the vehicle. The vehicle’s durability is 1,500 HP. The vehicle, which has a specific power of 18.1 h.p./t, has a top speed of 42 km/h.
In terms of gameplay, the M-IV-Y is a typical heavy tank—armored, moderately maneuverable, and has a good gun. At the same time, don’t forget about the reserve track and the influence it will have on the vehicle’s playstyle. For a new player, this feature will mainly be protection against a failure that facilitates escape from a seemingly stalemate situation, while for an experienced player, the combination of armor and the ability to move even with a destroyed track can open up new combat technics, even if they are risky.

At the moment, it has better mobility (same ground resistances but better hp/t ratio) and armour than the Renegade, in exchange for [slightly] worse dispersion and accuracy. It looks like it will be another OP tank if released as-is.
Nothing has been released as is from supertest. Chill dude.
Have you even seen the terrain resistance? Thats the absolutely WORST I have ever seen. It will most likely be an American Löwe with that stat.
Bigger coupula, and always remember to the see the armor model like remember what they did with CS-63
A DPM of 1911,5
Rammer boosts it to 2.102,7 … just above ‘average’ (for tier8).
I’d say its like a löwe but worse.
That’s a pretty awful combination of aim time, accuracy, and rate of fire. Also, the terrain resistance on unpaved ground is T34 levels of trash. And lastly, there’s the huge AMERICAN cupola that makes the turret armor ineffective against anyone who still bothers to aim for weakspots.
Looks balanced to me, maybe a bit UP given the subpar rate of fire.
Over-armoured turret, and maybe Hull. Rest seems fine for now.
It’s already on the 1.14.1 testserver just FYI
Yeah thats true I ve just find it out. It is supertest. It is initial stats. I don´t think so.
279 front turret armor sounds good, till you remember that it’s super flat at the front even with it being cylindrical, and it has m60 levels of a shit looking cupola on top of it; looks like it can’t side scrape cause of a turret bulge on the side of the hull; all this on top of the gun being as potato as it gets for a 105 and the tank is looking like it’s annoying on first look, but shit in reality, kinda like the bisonte.
I still like it thou, looks weird and funky and like it’ll be fun and rewarding to sucsessfully manage the weakspots and do well in the tank :>
Hoping they don’t rando buff it right before release like they always do, it’s not fun playing prems that legit are busted and/or carried as hell and easy to play.
