Not the WoT pic, but I did look at the tank.

Incidentally, having completed the first day's 15000 XP, the game hasn't put up a 1/7 progress bar for the Checkpoint mission (other people have noticed this as well). As long as it's just (another) cosmetic mistake and not a matter of losing a day, which will piss me off to no end...

I started Japanese tanks for the first time.

First battle in the Chi-Nu, my turret front got penetrated by an M4 derp HE. I expected the armor to be bad, but I didn't think it would be freaking Waffle-tier.

Hah, good luck! The Japanese lines retains its 50-75mm unangled armor for until tier 7. That's how paper the line's armor is. Having a slightly faster ROF for the equivalent tier level doesn't make up for this in the least.

My Chi-To took a round from a KV-1S for almost 600 damage, which confused me momentarily until I saw that it was HE, and of course the Chi-To has no armor.

On the bright side, the ROF can save things, because I was behind the KV-1S and shot it two more times while it reloaded, causing it to burst into flames.

Still, it does force some consideration of your hull-down when pretty much nothing will bounce.

All the Japanese tanks has paper armor(not until tier 7+?). That`s why I`m playing it as Sniper and Support Tank

Guys, I`m not talking about the WOT in game pic. I saw the real thing in the picture

Actually the armor on the Japanese line is paper thin until you get to the tier X STB-1, which finally gets some decent armor and a bouncy turret. But until then don't expect to bounce much of anything.

Since the WoT site won't be updated until later this afternoon...

The current On-Track is to the... E-50M.

I might purchase a Panther just for that hilariously long L/100 top gun.

Also, the 8.11 FOV was just fixed to the previous non-nausea configuration in a stealth mini-patch.

Also, they changed the final prize requirements, from killing yourself for a stupidly-high amount of XP for two weeks in every damn tank in the specific tech tree, for a terrible tiny premium, to only mildly killing yourself with any tank in the specific tech tree for a total of 250000 XP for a prize T-25. All of the other intermediate steps have also been changed, giving the consumables and equipment prizes at varying levels of XP instead of requiring entire tanks to be researched again.

So you could actually use the German medium tree to do your 15000 XP/day mission for the Tetrarch, because it'll take somewhat more XP than that per day to get the T-25.

That had always been one of the most awkward movie moments. Then again, its Sean Connery... and James Bond is irresistible.

Wait wait, let me get this straight, they're changing the mission rewards to a T-25 instead of a Tet? Or did they change the mission specifics altogether?

Different mission.

The Tetrarch is the NA month-long mission reward.

The T-25 is the On Track to the E-50M mission's reward, though its implementation has changed from the (ridiculous) way that they've given out the On Track rewards in the past.

I mentioned the T-25 mission and the Tetrarch mission together because you would need to do about 17500 XP per day in the E-50M's tech branch to get the T-25, but that figure would also be sufficient to pick up the Tetrarch for the month-long mission.

And I almost just typed "Tet Offensive" instead of "Tetrarch."

I have Tetrarch in my reroll SEA account. That tank sucks at close range because the armor is basically paper. I tried playing my newly bought Chi-nu Kai with my reroll SEA account and I got 3 kills with it. I`m waiting for the migration whatever to other server.

I think Japanese tanks are suited to be sniper and mobile support. The question is would that apply the same to STB-1? Since STB-1 is probably a prototype version of Type 74 MBT
