Let’s see what the VG has prepared for the players under the Christmas tree this year.
The holidays are approaching, and traditionally, the developers will present all players with a premium car. This year, the technique will be unusual and fun, so the majority of the audience of the game should visit.
Greetings tankers! World of Tanks is about to start the “New Year Offensive” and together with it players will be presented with a premium Tier 3 medium tank Convert. Medium Tank T3… Do not rush to get upset at the low level, the developers got the equipment from the stash, which they planned to introduce into the game back in 2010 as an independent branch (but only up to the 4th level).
The information is confirmed by WotExpress and there are already videos on YouTube.
ТТХ Convert. Medium Tank T3
A picture with performance characteristics since the supertest in August. In the latest patches, the tank has been changed:
As you can see, most of the changes are aimed at nerfing the technique. Apparently, the developers decided that in its original form, it will upset the balance in relation to the pumped tanks and other premiums.
In terms of the distribution of roles among the crew members, the commander has a complete overload, since, in addition to his duties, the tasks of the radio operator, gunner and loader were transferred to him. The driver is not distracted from the road, because he is exclusively engaged in his work.
The T3 Convert counter in the gun is an 8-round drum that fires in bursts of 4 rounds with a reload time of between 0.50 sec. inside the store. He has 40 units of alpha, so 320 damage can be given from the drum, which is pretty good by the standards of the 3rd level. The main thing is then to retreat to a safe place or under the cover of allies for 15 seconds of general recharge.
The turret traverse speed is good, the aiming time is mediocre, and the accuracy is quite sad. The tank will be able to fight only at close range… By the way, you should pay attention to the excellent vertical aiming angles of -15/15 degrees.
Characteristics of ammunition:
It is worth noting the good speed of the projectiles, especially the gold sabot calibers, as for the 3rd level.
Considering the level of battles and the class of vehicles, the lack of armor is not surprising. The safety margin is not bad at 450 units, but in general, nothing outstanding in terms of booking, the technician does not forgive mistakes.
Mobility and intelligence
The maximum speed is good, as for a medium tank, and the high power density allows you to quickly accelerate. The maneuverability is also quite comfortable to maneuver in active close range gunfights. Surprisingly, it has excellent camouflage with a solid viewing radius, and even better than some light tanks.
Advantages and disadvantages
Let’s summarize the tactical and technical characteristics of T3 Convert, highlighting its strengths and weaknesses.
- drum for loading shells;
- good drum damage;
- comfortable UVN;
- good dynamics and maneuverability;
- viewing range.
- average damage per minute;
- mediocre armor penetration;
- poor accuracy;
- weak booking;
- overworked commander.
In general, the tank turned out to be interesting and I can’t even call it bad. At the very least, he is just normal and can offer his own special gameplay, which not all cars have. No wonder that once upon a time the developers wanted to introduce it in a separate branch.
Of course, many would like something better, and some players will immediately sell T3 Convert, but still, for beginners and those players who prefer low-level battles, the technique should come in. Write in the comments what you think about the gift and will you leave it in the Garage?
