Supertest: Excalibur (Initial Stats)

From the forums.

A new vehicle is entering Supertest today—the Excalibur, a Tier VI British tank destroyer. Its layout isn’t typical for Blighty: it has a forward-placed turret with only 180 degrees of traverse.
Though bulky, the Excalibur has good mobility: thanks to its specific power of 18 hp per ton of weight, it can do 50 km/h. It also has outstanding gun depression: -10°/+20°.
During the first Supertest, we plan to choose an armament for this TD and thus define its combat role, so we’ll try two guns.
•A fast shooting 76mm gun that leans towards DPM-based play. It has great aiming parameters and a penetration of 165mm with a basic round. Due to the relatively low alpha damage of this gun, an Excalibur using it will be best suited for providing support fire from a safe distance.
•A 120mm cannon that fires high-explosive shells and aims well (compared to other guns of this type). 450 points of alpha damage and 70mm of armourpenetration will allow it to quickly dispose of more weakly armoured foes.

Straight Outta Supertest: Ruinberg Changes

Today, the developers present the proposed changes on the Ruinberg map, which already went to the Supertest. In general, some changes have been made to make it more playable, and many of them concern open space.

The open part of the map has been heavily changed – some buildings have been moved or removed, and the locations of several individual elements of the environment have been changed so as to increase the chances of effective firing. These changes should facilitate cooperation between the open and built-up part of the map.
