    You could easily have won that if you aimed at weakspots like the cupola instead of plinking at the gun mantlet or upper front glacis.
    I never took the time to tank-nerd every single tank's weaknesses and I have terrible luck hitting cupolas, often just bouncing off of THEM as well if I don't miss them entirely, so I just had a little fun with him, game was lost anyway. Even if I killed him his 2 remaining friends would've torn me a new ass-hole. Mostly I just found it funny that he was dinging ME just as bad despite having that R2D2 staring him in the face the whole time.
    I just kind of wonder what the deal with that IS was, he must've been out of ammo or something 'cause he didn't take a shot at me during our little song-and-dance.

    Most damage ever done with a ram?

    Killed a T-34-85 from about 60% in my battlebus (lorraine 40t), can't remember what actual value that was

    Edit: I always aim for the lower hull on the KT, always seems to pen

    same with E-75
    upper hull is made out of diamond
    lower hull is made out of wet cardboard and kitten fur

    actually infuriating, not sure why it's so damned weak

    T2 lights gun has 30mm of penetration, the rear armour of a PzIV is 20mm.

    I can't say I would be happy with the 100mm on Lorraine. While the 50 second cylinder reload is the smallest concern, the change from 2,5s to 3s refire rate is rather painful. Obviously the biggest problem is the fact each 300dmg shot costs goddamn 1030 credits instead of 255 credits for the 240dmg one.

    The long 90mm is 1,06 credits per point of damage, while the 100mm is 3,43 credits for point of damage. This means that when you consider the money you get from the damage done, 100mm is still 3,3 times more expensive to shoot than the 90mm.

    I think I will stick to the 90mm, giving the 100mm a go occasionally, but so far it sorta disappointed me.

    Most I ever seem to do is about 300-350 to Type 59s when I ram them with my KV-5. KV-5 makes a surprisingly good rammer on some maps. I'm scared to think what would happen if I hit a French tank.

    What are you talking about?

    KV-5 is amazing rammer both on paper and in practice, too. The best one, I dare to say.

    Today I rammed an IS-4 to death in mine.

    Edited:

    If you see a KV-5 heading downhill, hide your wife, hide your children, hide your mother, because if that russian beast collides with another tank, the very fabric of space and time gets torn.

    Go to the replays folder in your WoT directory, find the replay you want to see and double click it.

    Edited:

    It won't. Churchill is great fun but its just average as money maker, 47k is my record atm. KV probably earns more. Churchill if a really great XP farmer though, i've had 3 rounds above 2k xp already, with an average of almost 1k xp per battle.

    I didn't mean anything bad against it, I love mine for that fact. On Himmelsdorf, I usually go up the hill just so that I can annihilate some poor motherfucker who hasn't made it up his side yet.

    What's the most damage you ever did with a single ram?
    I got rammed by an E-50 in my AMX 13/90, he was going down a hill and I was trying to go up at ~20 kph.

    I lost 900 HP :froggonk:


    I also rammed a Pz IV with 230 HP in my Lorraine (I had 220 HP), we both died for some reason.

    Repairs first then camo. USA meds are easy as hell to track and not really stealthy imo. Also, you won't reach 100% before the skill patch comes, and while camo wouldn't begin working until then, repair will help you as you train it.

    He does admit that he took a few ideas from it.

    Here is his background story for the vehicle (short exert from the text)

    The SchwimmPanzer IV (S.Pz. IV) Sd Kfz 161/s, or “Kröte”, was a specialized adaptation made of the Panzer IV with the purpose of facilitating Operation Sea lion, the German plan to invade the British mainland. Conceived in late 1940, development was terminated in early 1942 with the cancelation of the invasion.
    Its a four page document.

    Again, I don't know the armor formula, but this clearly makes E-50 one of the best rammers in the game, unless THE best rammer. KV-5 has 170 front armor contra it's 120 but while having almost third less kinetic energy, so I really don't know what's actually better.
    In terms of anecdotal evidence, one of my friends saw an E-50 ram an E-75 to death when they were both at around 450~ health, so yes I'd say it's a pretty damn good rammer.

    In other news, the WoT forums are currently raging about the T34's nerfs on the test server, and Russian bias and all that shit. I'm curious if anyone else here has tried it and had any thoughts on it, cause I just drove it and it still seems like a god damn rape machine to me. It's like a T29 with a slower turret mounted with a super cannon - when its loaded with gold shells it fires little bits of hades.

    This is pretty sicknasty.

    And bonus points for not being

    "BAZZILION MILLIMETERS OF ARMOR ON ALL SIDES, E-9001, 42 200mm guns, THREE WARPDRIVES"

    but actually a modest yet clever design.
