Supertest: New Chinese 122 TM Medium.

A new Chinese Tier VIII medium tank, the 122 TM, will be sent to a closed Supertest.

This vehicle wields a 120 mm gun with 400 damage per shot. The aiming time and accuracy are quite good at 2 seconds and 0.33 m respectively. The standard shell penetration is 233 mm, while the HEAT shell can penetrate 299 mm of armor.

The combination of good armor (280 mm of frontal turret armor) and -8 degrees of gun depression allow this medium tank to take advantage of the terrain and hills. However, all these advantages come at a cost: the gun reload speed is 16 seconds. The top speed is 55 km/h, and the power-weight ratio is 15.5 h.p./t. Total HP: 1,500.

The 122 TM is nicely protected and has a good gun. Its main weakness is the reload time, which is why you should play it carefully and choose your targets wisely.

  1. Wait?? What? 400 Alpha, 233 pen, 2s aim time, -8° depression, 280mm turret and 135 UFP armour??!!! Somebody needs to be fired for only thinking this should enter the game 🙂

    1. it is better than ANY Chinese Tier 8, which is no suprise being a late 70’s prototype that later evolved into the Type 80 MBT
      with these kinds of tanks at Tier 8 there’s no longer any valid argument as to why the Chieftain cannot become a Tier 10 MT for the British TT, and sooner or later we will see the MBT-70 (early to mid 70’s) in the game as well, likely as a expensive Tier 10 “reward”
