    122mm on side armour of 112 is a lie like on the other Chinese tanks?
    They have tiny strips of 122mm and the rest is still 80 mm….

    WZ-111 : QQ WG 80mm Buff 140mm !!

  3. Surprised Rita didn’t post news about how the 112’s lower plate is now 140 mm thick from the original 80 mm and either way, 112 is possibly one of the most durable tier 8 heavies without magic side armor on the Russian heavies.

    Also, really happy the Pz III/IV and VK 30.02M got buffed, those tanks were heavily under powered, the VK 30.02M didn’t get massive improvements, now it is more on even playing ground with other tier 6 mediums because the gun depression can hid its giant hull better, checked the armor model and the mantlet does look a lot more bouncy with fewer armor holes. The Pz III/IV on the otherhand, beautiful tank! it really emphasizes the Pz IV H should use the howitzer and the Pz III/IV is the 75mm boss. Maybe too op but I have to give it a spin and see if the mobility got brutalized by the nerf hammer like they’re going to do to the Panther II.

    WARGAMING PLEASE RELEASE THE AMX M4 MLE. 49!!! I want more french tanks especially now that its side armor has been buffed to 55 from 40, it won’t get overmatched by IS-3’s and BL-10’s anymore haha, I think the armor is now good enough in combination with the 10 degrees of gun depression and 232 pen to justify the low dpm, it’s like a lowe except mobile!

    • i could not believe when you said 112 had 140 lfp armor buff. then i checked tanks.gg and what the fuck?! it has waaaaaaaaay better lfp than wz-111, which players had to work so hard for 1 month and still even better than the tier 10?! what the actual fuck is happening here? this buff just breaks my heart…

    • Yep I checked and played my 112. The best part right now is that people still shoot the lower plate because in their mind it’s garbage and all their puny shells bounce off as I laugh my way to the bank and doom-canon them into submission.

      Basically they brought it to IS-6 levels of comfort. It’s both a superb sidescrapper and a very durable “assault” tank/corner turner. At close range the cuppolas remain weak but from the front that’s really about it.

      In a 1v1 vs an IS-6 I’d go as far as to say the 112 is superior because of the 250mm HEAT shells that will pen an IS-6 much easier than its 217 APCR will pen you.

      Glorious Mao machine !

      PS : Yeah, sad for WZ-111 owners. They should buff its speed to make it a different playstyle, make it more like the 111 1-4, quite fragile but fast and brutal. I believe its reload is already a little better than the 112, they could focus on that aspect.

        The reload difference AFAIK is very negligible. I’ll welcome if they gave something different to make an unique playstyle out of it (speed/significantly better gun/whatever), but right now it’s just a very inferior 112/IS-6

      • That’s why I said they should focus on the aspect. As in buff the reload even more and make the tank a bit faster too. It would differentiate it quite a bit from the other too.

    112 is now OP. IS-6 armour with around 170-180mm effective from the front is already considered tough, and 112 smashes it with over 200mm effective armour thickness, and it can be angled while IS-6 can’t. The side of 112 is also stronger on areas above the tracks, and similar behind the tracks.

    IS-6 is a dangerous opponent for all tanks below tier 8, and remains a challenge for most tier 8 tanks to pen.
    Now, the OP 112 is simply unkillable for any tier 7, even the TDs (other than the big-gunned Sturer Emil, and 152mm HE-firing SU-152). Since its armour can be angled, even tier 8 heavy tanks like the Tiger II will find punching through the front difficult.
    The only cons of the 112, other than the gun, is the mobility. Its view range is 380m though, so the lower mobility than IS-6 is actually compensated.

    The only good thing is that 112 is no longer sold (here in SEA at least), so there’s that.

      Give me back my money for FCM! 😛

      But WTF did just happen with the 112? Did WG fcuked up something really hard? As they did not announce it anywhere and even Tier10 113 now has weaker armor than 112. That one LFP change makes the 112 from one of the worst T8 prem tans to the very best tank by far.
      Now, even if you stay in an open field, you just have to angle the armor by some degrees an no gun with less than 230+ pen wil go through your armor at all. That is simply crazy!

    So from pretty cool Pz III/IV, they made it into another generic tier 5 tank. Nice.
