|AMX M4 45||VII||300||9.60|
“So here is the table with comparison of reload time on O-I Exp and other heavies that have guns with similar average damage. Reload times were taken from wiki page, which accounts for fully trained crew, and no equipment. So O-I Exp beats all those tier VI, VII and VIII tanks except AMX M4 45, which reloads just 0.09 seconds faster.
I just don’t see what is such a gun doing in tier V. If it had horrible penetration or huge reload than you could say it’s compensated by that, but it doesn’t, it has excellent penetration for its tier and it reloads faster than 3 tiers higher tanks. It can 2 shot other heavies in its tier with AP shell, and since it has excellent penetration you don’t even have to aim at the weak spots. Tier V and VI games are infested with O-I Exp and O-I, there is not a single game without at least 1-3 of those per team.”
Another spreadsheet, made by killswitch247, O-I Exp’s compared to other tier V heavies:
Green= Best Blue= Second Best
|TANK||HP||ALPHA||DPM||30 sec damage||60 sec damage||PEN||Accuracy||Aim time||Dispersion||Gun depression|
|Kv-1s 122mm heat||660||370||1995||1110||2220||140||0,56||2,78||22/22/18||5°|
“The problem with the O-I experimental is that it’s best in class or a close second in all important stats. it isn’t weak in any way to balance out its strengths.”
What you think about this vehicle and Japanese heavies in general?
I personally find that World of Tanks was a better place before the Japanese Heavies came into the scene. For you guys, Japanese HTs are that inebriated guy who at a Gents WC will get uncomfortably close to you and then piss on your shoes. They just get on the way, push you around and most of the time are nothing but a HP to farm team slot waster with the aptitude and accuracy of a drunk men that eventually will get lucky enough to one shot kill a poor sod.
Lately, when I wish I was playing other games and/or feelling like quitting the game for the day is when I see one of those coming around the corner.
I also created 2 different nicknames to Japanese HTs depending how good the player driving is, “Trailer Trash” and “Mobile Japanese home”, the last kind is very rare to spot.
