  1. Hmm…curious. 3mm of spaced armor amounts to noghint but WoT’s game mechanics mean HEAT will lose almost all it’s penetration before it hits the armor becauwe of the distance.

    So…I guess don’t shoot HEAT at the back of this thing 😛

      That’s how heat works irl tho. As long as the spaced armor is thick enough to detonate the charge, even very short distances of empty space are enough to turn a concentrated, molten copper stream into a warm, unconcentrated copper sludge splashing over the main armor, doing almost nothing

    why o why did WG chose this super ugly prototype tank as a model?. why not the normal sheridan? or something less ultra ugly?

      i think it’s good thou, cause with the normal Sheridan you wont get the all around space armor, this thing might be really good for those high tier gold spamming MTs, especially the full HEAT BCs

      1. But on the downside the model is visually bigger and bigger tank models tend to have less camo rating. Camo tends to be a slightly more impotant stat on LTs then protection from HEAT

      Agreed, the normal Sheridan is not only more appropriate and aesthetically pleasing, its also much less bulky. As for the cardboard box’s spaced armor, it looks pretty pointless in most situations. AP and APCR won’t be affected at all. HE will remain a significant threat, and high tier HEAT might get trolled one time out of ten. Maybe one out of five if RNG is on your side that day.

    The reason why this thing is so big bulky is because the US wanted to make this thing buoyant enough to actually float and be amphibious in water. However wargaming doesn’t have this feature in wot. So if your not going to implement amphibious capablilites… why even add this model where the main production is much more compact….ooooo scared of missiles?! Just add your same shit ass 152 on that model with same gun characteristics as on this one……

  4. I say remove the spaced armor and just give us the production hull. Model would be smaller which would mean better camo. I personally don’t see the need for HEAT protection on a LT

  5. why ppl never understand the production M551 can fire ATGM, which WG never let we have in-game ? If they actually use production M551, that mean it will have many complain about “why Sheridan dont have ATGM” and so on

    the space armor is actually deceptive, there are many places that will do no dmg shots if you dont know the internal layout
