Forum Leak/Announcement. Today, a Premium Tier VIII US tank destroyer makes its debut in closed testing.

post-501153788-0-80339200-1547046516

This is a well-protected machine designed for close quarters combat. And we mean it, it’s very, very well-protected—the frontal armor of the hull hits 260 millimeters! The weapon is fast-firing and hard-hitting—the DPM is more than 2800 hit points, with single-shot damage of 400 HP and basic shell penetration of 248 mm. As for the mobility, it’s the norm for a heavy machine with a max speed of 26 km/h.

The precision and speed of the shells do limit the effectiveness of the TS-5 over long distances, but it’s not terrible and, if needed, this American can get up close to deal with opponents. After all, this is a hard-shelled tank destroyer, which will feel right at home in defending a line of attack during the battle. It can also help bring out those “entrenched” enemies from their safe positions. Moreover, it can shake off shells from higher tiered opponents when played effectively, especially if you can hide the lower frontal plate, which is its biggest weak spot.

In summary, the TS-5 is a hard-shelled, but a slightly sluggish armored vehicle with a quick-firing, hard-hitting armament perfect for getting up close and brawling.

As always, depending on the test results, the characteristics may change. Follow the news and good luck in your battles!

    “if needed, this American can get up close to deal with opponents.”

    this is the certain death for a turretless tank destroyer with bad track traverse.

      not really, i mean if you’re trying to get close up against many tanks then ya you’re gonna die and rightfully so.

      99% of heavies are not fast enough to get around a tier 10 td without some other factor. mediums are a different story.

      e3 also laughs at majority of gold rounds in the game.

      By the looks of things it will be down to the lfp. As that is mentioned as the weakspot. In the pic’s its huge (unless they mean the lfp is the bit where the lfp meets the underside of the tank as in a couple of cough RU tanks). and how thick that is.

    >That xbawx hueg lower plate is a specifically stated weakspot.
    My T95 get’s all kinds of BS pens in that little LFP strip of 100mm it has, and they have the nerve to call this thing “hard-shelled”.
    This is also ignoring the stated 260mm of armor is only IMMEDIATELY around the gun right behind the gun shield based off of technical drawings (look up “ts-5 tank” and you’ll find a picture of it and some others) with everywhere else being paper.
